Recently, my friend Connie invited me to a Norwex Enviro Products presentation at her house. The sales consultant demonstrated how to clean without chemicals. I purchased a pair of dryerballs that have porcupine-like protrusions that "lift and separate laundry while softening fabrics. This reduces drying time, static cling and wrinkles - naturally without chemicals." They really do work... and are such a pretty lime green color.
I also purchased this microfiber mitt that "attracts and absorbs the finest of dust particles allowing for less frequent dusting." I used it to swipe my very dusty computer screen. It lived up to its claims.
The final product I bought was Antibac Enviro Cloths in a lovely pink color that "clean everything using only water leaving a bacteria free surface. The antibacterial agent is embedded in the microfiber so, when the cloth is used to clean surfaces, it will remove 99.9% of the bacteria on that surface and destroy that bacteria (in the cloth) after a few hours." I am excited to give them a whirl, but I am a diehard fan of Melaleuca Ecosense products. My general cleaning threesome includes MelaMagic Heavy-Duty Multi-Purpose Cleaner that I add to my bucket of water along with Sol-U-Mel stain booster made from "Melaleuca Oil and other naturally derived ingredients". I spray Sol-U-Guard Botanical Disinfectant that "is proven to kill over 99% of bacteria" on surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom. It is "made from plant extracts with pleasant aromatherapeutic vapors". All three products leave such a clean scent in the room.

Today’s mileage: 0
Total Mileage for July: 24.75 miles (same as yesterday) I need to pick up the pace if I'm going to reach my 50-mile minimum goal for the month. If gardening could translate into mileage, I'd be well over my goal. I have been shovling and spreading mulch to inhibit weed growth and retain moisture. That's nearly completed, so I have plans to hit the bike trail at the end of this week.
Bible reading? Yes.
