Here is a not at all posed block tower fiasco for your viewing pleasure.
I'm so bummed out. I have let all my old, toxicish cleaning supplies run out so I could switch to the non-toxic, planet friendlier Method line. I was so excited to clean everything yesterday, using rags instead of paper towels, mops instead of Swiffers. It was cleaning taken to a whole new level- cleaning that would make the world better, too! Yayyyy, cleaning!

But here's the thing. I MISS my pine-fresh poison. It works better, and makes everything shiny and pretty. It allows me to walk into a room and be ASSAULTED by the ammonia freshness of it all. I am not going to rush out and buy the old stuff, I'm going to try and get used to the stuff that I now have. But I'm making the change kicking and screaming, and with not-so-shiny floors, countertops and bathrooms. I'd consider breaking in to my neighbors houses to get a sniff fix off of their Pine-Sol or Windex, but they use the crappy Method stuff, too.
Man, Kermit the Frog had it so right.

That tower rocks!

okay, I really really think there are GOOD natural products and crappy natural products. Method would fall under the crappy. You should just get a Frontier Coop account and order stuff for cheaper than Method that are green. It costs $10 for your whole life's membership, but if you decide to leave, they'll give you back the $10. It's pretty easy to use & they have yummy stuff for wholesale.

If you miss pine & lemon scent, you can just put essential oils into a non-scented natural brand. I think I have some lemon. I can send it to you if you really miss lemon!

Love to you!

Go Claire!! Kel your house always looks great and it isn't easy being green but it's worth it unless the spy satellite obliterates Itasca soon and what's the point. Love, Mom

OK Claire- I went to the Frontier Coop website
( and I must be missing something because I don't see cleaning stuff. Although I do see a lot of other great stuff.
BTW, I don't even know if I've met you. I'm Kelly's favorite aunt! (right Kel?)

Hey, Lynne! I think we have met before, but it was a while ago... at her wedding, I think?

Okay, get ready for a blog hijacking...

If you use this link:

The the username & password are both my last name. (ask Kelly)

I don't mean to turn all these comments into raves for Frontier, I've just been really happy with it. $10 and you never have to buy anything if you don't want to! You could use my account if you want to before you decide if you would use an account of your own.

The catch - to get free shipping, your total order has to be $250 or more (I just send out an e-mail to friends/family a few weeks before the order & have that FAST... once people pay wholesale... they don't want to go back!). Otherwise, if you just get a bit of light things, it's like $6 shipping.
