Hello and welcome to our newest blog! I’m here to help you with all your cleaning and organizing needs. I know there are some people out there who love to clean. Others? Not so much. Personally, I love the feel of a neat, clean and organized home. I just want the process of getting there to be fast and easy. Join me in creating a community where we can share suggestions, swap stories and have a good time. We may even throw in some contests, coupons and giveaways along the way. Who knows? It’s up to you!

For my inaugural blog, I wanted to show you a new item that came into our department. We don’t carry every product that comes our way, but it’s sure fun to test them all out. How do we find these items? We attend trade shows (in Las Vegas, Chicago & Florida) throughout the year to see firsthand the latest and the greatest. We also receive samples in the mail.

Today’s cleaning contender is a pair of cleaning gloves.

Cleaning Gloves

These shiny, silvery mitts are being marketed as a 4-layer, waterproof cleaning miracle. The metallic, futuristic looking outside is meant for scrubbing. The sponge interior is soft, intended to protect your hands and keep them dry. Honestly, although these gloves look like something Michael Jackson would wear, they are an interesting concept. The manufacturer promotes them for cleaning dishes or bathrooms, BBQ grills and even car wheels.  They are intended to replace a sponge. By wearing these, you can get into tight spots, use less soap and get greater cleaning control.

My take? They feel very comfortable to wear and do seem to work. The surface is a little scratchy/abrasive, so I would not recommend them for really delicate surfaces or glass. Or, if you do try them on those surfaces, make sure you test a small corner first.

We haven’t decided if we will carry these yet. What do you think? Should we or shouldn’t we? While you ponder that, enjoy a pic of a couple of our “product testers” (our Creative Director & Merchant) modeling/trying them out.

Testing them out!

If you have any items you want us to test, suggest or are looking for,  please let us know!

In the meantime, clean on!

-Connie 🙂
