Want to remove tough stains the old fashion way? Last week friday on my way home from work I saw this Omo truck with lots of boxes filled with Omo handwash laundry liquid so I decided to get myself a sample to try. Even though I wash with a machine I gave this handwash liquid a try.

Omo Handwash Liquid soap is designed for people who use their hands to do laundry.

Promises from Omo include:
>Removes tough stains faster
>Just one cap is enough
>The 750ml liquid is equals to 1kg powder
>You get about 10 washes

Omo is a popular trusted brand you can buy the product from the following stores and you can visit their websites to find a store near you:

>Shoprite (www.shoprite.co.za)

>Checkers (www.checkers.co.za)

>Spar (www.spar.co.za)

>Pick n Pay (www.picknpay.co.za)

Omo Handwash Laundry Liquid is a well established brand that you can trust and so far it has delivered results .

After using the product over the weekend yes I used my hands to wash a few clothes and I noticed the follow
The soap has a very pleasant smell
One cap of the liquid soap is really enough as it lasts long throughout the wash.
Pre-soaking the clothes helps with removing the stains and didn’t use a lot of strength to wash

Also noticed that the soap is a little harsh on the hands so I suggest you put lotion on your hands after doing the laundry

I received whatsapp message from my mom and sister, you know those chain messages about a man who is doing human trafficking targeting single women,boys and girls. I started getting worried about my daughter as I work fulltime and take time to get home I worry a lot about her.All I want to do is protect her all the time but I don’t want to live in fear either.

Found myself thinking about home schooling if its a safe option because the world has become a very dangerous place to live in. The idea of someone taking your child is nerve wrecking .

My daughter she is six full of life, starting Grade 1 next year, named her Abeerah in Muslim it means flower and in Hebrew means strength.she is the love of my life and will do anything to protect her from scumbags who targets children.

Tumeric Face Mask

Started using tumeric and milk as a face mask and I noticed every time after I wash my face it looks bright,so I use this mixture in the morning after a late night to give that fresh well rested look.

Make a paste of tumeric and milk
Apply it to your face
Leave it for 5 minutes
Rinse of with warm water and pat to dry

Tumeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory. Its good for dark circles, acne and eczema. Tumeric rejuvenates and brightens the skin. It is also known that tumeric helps with rosacea – a chronic skin condition that is characterized by redness and pimples. It eases the redness and treats this disease.

Some other options are adding lemon and honey into the mixture.

Happy New Month

keep-calm-and-have-a-kalo-mina-3

Its June already, wow I cannot believe in Greece its a tradition that on the first day of each month you greet everyone by saying Kalo Mina which means have a good months, so Kalo Mina to you all and myself.

So over the weekend I bought wine, I don’t drink but I saw on the latest issue of True Love an article saying that red wine may aid with losing some weight, so why the hell not. I am feeling good and excited today not sure why. I have also started a new diet going to be eating clean no carbs or starch I am still thinking about the sugar because I am a sugar addict. I am looking forward to having a good month.
