I Guess I Don't Get Out Much.... Why Haven't I Heard Of This Before?


Maybe everyone else in the world knows about this genius yet simple item... The Greens Bag. While at the market a few weeks ago, I happened to notice a rack of these in the produce department. Going way out on a limb, I decided to break down and fork over the $3.00 or whatever the price was. It was cheap, I assure you.


Then, it sat on the kitchen counter next to the microwave for yet another week. Then Mr. Snooty brought home a head of lettuce so we could give it a shot. Let me just say that we were both quite skeptical, but we washed the lettuce, removed the fat bottom, stuck it in the greens bag, and shook, as per the instructions.



Let me just say that we were both mouths-gaping-in-shock over the results. It actually works. Who knew? Something that actually claims the truth about a product and it really is true with no exaggerations.



So, no more expensive bags of pre-packaged salads for us. Nearly 11 days later the lettuce was still crispy and had no signs of *rusting* as lettuce most often tends to do. I just can't bring myself to eat rusty lettuce. Okay... perhaps if I were starving to death I'd eat it.



Oh, and as long as I'm on the subject of things that actually do as promised, let me introduce you to another of my little friends. It's called Lemi-Shine. It's a powder that is put in the closed compartment of the dishwasher when you add the soap to the open compartment. When the cycle is done, you have 99% spot free glassware.



Now, this might not mean much to those who don't have hard water like we do, but this stuff has certainly made my life easier. I mean, we've tried the liquid jet dry... which worked in a rather half-baked way. I still had to shine the glasses before company came. Then we tried a bit of white vinegar just before the rinse cycle, which was always a pain in the neck, if you even remembered to do it. Still, together they were only able to get the glasses about 75% spot free.



Then a company called Envirocon came out with this incredible product that's not only good for your glassware, but it's also environmentally friendly. The most incredible shocker of all was that Lemi-Shine is made right here in our town. Who knew? This amazing product has also cleaned a number of glass items I have that were thought to be permanently stained with a white film from the hard water. Believe me, I had tried everything from vinegar to dental cleaning tablets (which sometimes works), to not avail. Lemi-Shine is phosphate free and is also used to clean the dirty inside of dishwashers. Yes, believe it or not, dishwashers do get dirty.



Envirocon is so confident in their product that they offer a money back guarantee. How often do you really get that these days? Well, I'll tell you. Hardly. Ever.

I have never seen either one of these items before. Now that I know they're out there I'm going to keep my eyes open. Guess I don't get out much, either.

I've got to find the dishwasher stuff! And maybe even a greens keeper....

Heather said...

Okay I'm all over that Greens Keeper. I hate washing lettuce so I buy the expensive kind–which I also hate.I love the name too.

My mom and I still take our milk thistle daily. BTW is it okay to wash it down with wine?

I haven't heard of any of those things! I'd love to try the Green Keeper!

I am quite serious about these things working! Maybe I should see if I can buy stock. Hmmm...
