Purex Complete 3-in-1 Landry Sheets

Product: Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets

Gone are the days of lugging your dirty clothes hamper, liquid detergent, liquid fabric softener, and box of dryer sheets up and down several flights of stairs from dorm room to basement laundry room! Okay... so you still have the hamper to lug, but in place of two bottles and a box you have this nifty little dispenser.

These sheets really do make laundry easier. No more measuring. No more worrying about liquid getting on clothes and leaving those unsightly grease mark things. No more spillage. One sheet is detergent, softener, and anti-static. It's so easy. You throw in your clothes. Toss in a sheet. And wash. Then you transfer the clothes and sheet to the dryer and dry. That's it.

I've been using these sheets this semester at college and I'm quite pleased. My clothes come out clean and fresh. My only complaint is that the fragrance isn't very strong. I love the strong scent of just-laundered clothes. After using these sheets, my clothes come out smelling good... but the fragrance is very light. I think this may just be a personal issue.

This may also be due to the fact that I used the "Pure & Clean" scented sheets. My clothes really do smell pure and clean. I am going to keep on using these sheets and try out the "Spring Oasis" and "Tropical Escape" fragrances.

Overall, I give this product a THUMBS UP because it makes laundry for college students a piece of cake and leaves little room for error.




DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
