After publishing the Blueland review I decided to reach out to the company about my main concern regarding the products. If you missed that review click here.

Hello,

I am a bit puzzled on what to do. I loved the products, however, the bottles have started cracking. In late August I received the starter kit as a birthday gift, less than two months later two out of the three bottles have cracked all the way through. I do not recall dropping them, my fiancee suggested that they cracked due to the bottles expanding in the heat (we have no ac). Then again if it was from the heat why didn’t all three crack.
I was going to repurchase the two bottles that broke but I do not want them to keep cracking as it defeats the purpose of them being reusable if I have to keep replacing them.
Thank you for your time,
Breana

Hello Blueland Team,

Thank you for the quick response, and of course, attached are pictures of the bottles. I am interested in receiving a replacement starter set, it was ordered under my mother’s name as she ordered them for my birthday. On file it would be under name at address. Let me know if you need any more information.
Thank you again,
Breana

Hi Breana,

Thanks for the confirmation! We’ve gone ahead and sent a replacement Bathroom and Multi-Surface Starter Sets to the shipping address on file and you should receive another confirmation e-mail shortly. We’ve also attached the return labels in this e-mail for you to send back the damaged bottles in the same boxes your replacements are shipping to you so we can responsibly recycle them. Alternatively, if your area has single-stream recycling you can also dispose of them that way.

Thank you for your patience and hope you can get cleaning sooner than later!

Within a week the new bottles arrived. If you are wondering, “why didn’t you update us sooner”, here is why. It is amazing that they replaced the bottles, however, I wanted to wait at least a month to see if the new bottles would have the same issue. I am happy to say that so far the bottles are all blemish free.

Worth the Money?:

Yes, the products are good, if you read the comments on the trial video you will see that others have had issues with the cracking as well as the glass cleaner. The companies customer service is excellent though, so if you have any issues simply reach out to them. When I received my bottles the first time around they were just starting out now they have additional products and no doubt are improving daily.

On the subject of the glass cleaner leaving smudges, if you use too much this will happen. Perhaps they have changed the formula now so this no longer occurs though. Personally I have switched to white vinegar, however, it does not smell anywhere near as good as the Blueland glass cleaner. ha. My favorite ones would still have to be the multi surface and bathroom formulas. I would definitely recommend their products to a friend, they clean well without the annoying chemical smells.

Ultimate Stain Remover Test| Grandma’s Spot Remover

Throughout the years I have suffered the loss of beloved pieces in my wardrobe to stubborn stains that seem to pop out of nowhere. The most tragic spill I endured was not even my fault, which makes it even more obnoxious to relive. It was freshman year, I had just received a two piece set from the Avril Lavigne collection at Kohl’s in collaboration with Alice and Wonderland. Of course, it was a white set with thin black stripes, chains on the pocket, and suspender shorts too. We did not even make it through first period together before the girl behind me somehow managed to spill her hot tea all over me, ruining the set forever. The rest of the day I sported the upmost fashionable grey and black p.e. uniform. After trying multiple stain removers, it was time to lay the best two set piece to rest.

The Avril Lavigne Two Peice Set

Yes, my story is a bit dramatic but there is nothing worse than getting a stain and knowing your clothing item is forever gone, thrown into the Saturday rag pile. Recently I received a stain at work on a sweater but luckily a coworker had supplies on hand. First, I tried the famous Tide to Go stick, which lightened the stain but it was still visible. Next, I was urged to try Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover which did the trick after it was run through the washing machine.

After having success with Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover, I was curious if it would work on stains I previously received from early in the week to the month prior.  The store clerk even raved about the products success on set in stains, it seemed like I hit the holy grail of stain removers. Right there I purchased two of Grandma’s stain remover products with a smug smile on my face. I thought if this thing truly worked then I would never have to live in fear of putting my most beloved pieces at risk again.

Hope you all enjoy this review. What item of clothing have you lost from a stain and what did you use to try to revive it?

Bizond Clothing Steamer | Review

If you are a true diva fashionista you check the tag prior to purchase to receive the full run down. One of the most important factors of course is the materials and care instructions. Does the dreaded word iron appear or not? While I attempt to stay away from fabrics that are prone to wrinkling, it seems as if there are always a couple of pieces that wrinkle up from time to time. If you are anything like me and dread dragging out the iron and ironing board, it is time to make a change.

The main reason I sought out a steamer was to press my “studio” background more efficiently. This little beauty is amazing yet so small. Simple to use and so much faster than dropping over the huge fabric and rotating it across a traditional ironing board. No more running late to work or ditching your favorite outfit due to some wrinkles. The Bizond heats up almost instantly and is ready to go. Feeling skeptical? I would be too which is why I want you to see it in real time for yourself, watch the video below.

Do you hate ironing?

Aromatherapy for Anxiety: Does it Work?

Anxiety has been a constant roller coaster that I am tired of being on. After some research on how to surpass anxiety I came across aromatherapy as an all-natural remedy. The company Plant Therapy came up as a premium brand for aromatherapy, so I purchased the pre-diluted roll-on Worry Free Synergy.

Get Bendy: Review

While I’ve owned Get Bendy for a couple of years now, I recently committed to set aside time for myself to stretch four days a week. Taking out my tablet to follow the Get Bendy program always seemed draining, mainly because the tablet was a bit outdated that I had installed it on. Needless to say, it would shut off every other page, which led me to printing out the Get Bendy Guide.

Apple Pencil Review

The Background

As an artist, sketching, doodling and so on are a huge part of my creative expression outlet. Since tablets came into existence, I have always been a more paper and #2 pencil kind of person. The first tablet I tried was a Samsung that came with a stylist specifically for drawing, I fell in love. However, after a couple years it starts to lag due to upgrades past it’s capabilities. Long story short, I decided to try the iPad for the first time when they came out with the Apple Pencil, specifically for university and sketching.
