I know what you're thinking. I'm going to blog about some new techno-toys, but no.
These are two ordinary household products that have absolutely changed how I live. Both of them were introduced to me in the past year.
First is stevia. I use Sweet Leaf Stevia products to sweeten my daily glasses of water to make a really nice drink. They have just normal stevia, but they also have very neat flavors. I like Vanilla Creme and Raspberry. But I really love the Root Beer flavor. It takes me back to when my parents would take us into town (we lived on a farm) and we'd go to A&W for root beer and hamburgers. That was just heaven.
The second thing is Miracle II. Yes, it's soap. Miracle II is a type of soap that is made from certain ingredients from coconuts and stuff. It is antiviral, antibacterial and yet it doesn't contain any bleaches or antibiotics. In fact, you can drink it. In fact, you should drink it. It is a neutralizer, so when you're using it, it is neutralizing the odors, the stains, whatever. When you drink it, it is neutralizing your body, bringing its pH value back to normal.
I just love Miracle II, using it as a soap, floor cleaner, shampoo, toothpaste, you name it. This is just my personal opinion, but I am a very happy customer of this stuff.
I sprayed a little Miracle II on our yard plants this spring, and I was really surprised at the results. Our lilac tree blossomed for the first time since we planted it eight years ago. Our hedge started popping out some type of pears, which we had no idea it was even capable of. That hedge has been here since we moved in 10 years ago and it's never had any indication of fruit!
I did a podcast with Steve Heilich a few months ago. He is a Miracle II rep. That was very informative for me, and several listeners have commented saying the same thing.
Anyway, these are two things I love - stevia and Miracle II.
