There aren’t very many cleaning chores I hate more than scrubbing, showers most of all. If something needs to be vacuumed, or even if it doesn’t, I’ll vacuum anytime. Scrubbing is the absolute worst, based on an informal poll of 75% of my children.
So I was excited when I was invited to try Shower Shimmy. What I liked best: it was created and invented by a mom, it works great, it’s a good value and its cleaning solution is environmentally safe. And — it works great on anything — not just showers. I used it to clean some of the dirtiest grout on my kitchen floor! (Check out those bubbles!)
At my house, we love to help small businesses get started, especially when they’re women-owned or mom-based. I am so excited to see how well the Shower Shimmy project on Kickstarter is doing. (What’s Kickstarter? It’s a great way for small businesses to get started — once enough units of a product are sold, it can be produced. It’s a great way to “crowdsource” new businesses.) That’s why you can’t yet buy Shower Shimmy in stores: it’s brand-new, and you can get in early with special deals on the very first ones.
I tried mine all around the house – even the kitchen sink (above) and loved it:

In the Rocky Mountains, where I live, we’ve had an interesting winter this year. The snow has come a bit later than usual, but it has arrived, along with colder weather. And every year, no matter how much I think I’ve stayed on top of it, it’s time to make sure my house is ready […]
