Tub And Shower Magic Recipe

Tub and Shower Magic from This shower cleaner came from an Everyday Cheapskate e-mail, and it is truly magic, as the title states. I just tried it and it got the soap scum off my glass shower door with hardly any scrubbing. It was amazing, as I have tried to clean that door with various products. It is so easy, too. Try it and you will be sold. Be careful because a little bit goes a long way. You need a 24-oz. squirt bottle for this.

Perfect storage for makeup brushes. and the upside is your bathroom will always smell like coffee. Genius. Review: works like a charm, just be sure not to fill the coffee beans too high. If you do, beans will spill out every time you take a brush out. Also, picking a fancy flavored bean like Hazelnut sounds like a good idea in theory, but I am already tired of smelling it every time I step into the bathroom. I will be switching it with just reg ol' coffee beans.
