Free Glade product Coupon again!


Do you remember this Glade expressions free product coupon from a few weeks back?  Well, great news!  If you ordered it the first day that it was available you can re-order today!  Way to go Websaver and SC Johnson :o)

I would say that on average I only purchase two bottles of air freshener per year.  I usually only use it in the Winter months when the house is stuffy or maybe a quick spritz if company is coming over to freshen things up.

With my FPC I picked up the blue can, Cotton & Italian Mandarin and it is THE BEST smelling air freshener ever! (IMO) I find I am using it everyday because I just love the smell.  I'll be sad when I'm out but, I would rather spend my dough on essentials like food.  The yellow can, Pineapple & Mangosteen smells kind of pina colada like, I might try that one with my next FPC.

My Extreme Couponing deal from Walmart

I picked up such a great deal at Walmart I just had to share because I'm giddy about it!

This week Walmart has the Mini Wheats Centres on sale for $2.97.  Right now there is a $1.50 Websaver.ca coupon for Mini Wheats! 

I knew this was a good coupon so I asked some family members and friends to order the coupon for me and I ended up with seven coupons.


When I got to WalMart the stars were aligned, they actually had it in stock.  BUT....here's the absolute best part of the whole deal.  Kellogg's has a promo on right now called Share Your Breakfast where inside the boxes of cereal is a PIN number for a free breakfast item AND they make a donation to Canada's two largest breakfast charities.  It's a Win-Win.

 I don't usually buy mini wheats but they were a big hit.  In 3 days they have almost polished off 2 boxes!  The free item coupon comes via Websaver and you don't need to order the minimum 3 coupons to get your freebie(which we appreciate!)

My freebie choices were:
  • Silk soy milk
  • Silk Tru Almond Milk
  • Tetley tea
  • V8 Fusion juice
  • Danone Yogurt
  • 2 lbs of Bananas
  • Activia 
  • Coolision yogurt tubes 
  • Eggo waffles
I ordered 2 Tetley tea, 1 Silk Soy Milk, and 4 Almond milk.  Woot Woot!

Another Extreme Couponing Canadian Style deal in the Walmart flyer was Children's Tylenol.  It says various kinds are on sale and Livingwell (Johnson and Johnson) has a $3 printable coupon for Children's Tylenol on their site right now.  My kid's take the adult pills now but if I did have youngsters I'd be picking this up!

The Triple Threat-How to get Sparkly Clean Dishes #FinishRevolution

 As part of the Finish Revolution campaign, I recently had the opportunity to attend a webinar about how dishwasher detergent works and how to get the best clean possible from your dishwasher.

 If you are like me, you load up the dishwasher, toss in the soap and walk away.  I learned the "secret" to getting the cleanest dishes possible.  I call it the "Finish triple Threat" (ooh, my dirty dishes are quivering)

Here's what you'll need:
 Finish Dishwasher Cleaner, Jet Dry rinse agent and Finish Quantum. Easy right? Now I'll tell you why this is a winning combination.

I never thought about a dishwasher getting dirty but it does!  Grease and limescale build up in hard to see places and effect how well your dishwasher works.  We have very hard well water and I noticed a big  difference in how well my dishwasher cleaned after using the Finish Dishwasher Cleaner for the first time.

I have always used Jet Dry and I always wondered how it worked.  Well, I finally found out!  A droplet of water has high surface tension, one vertical drop will hang on to the glass and dry there, leaving food particles and hard water stains.  Rinseaid lowers surface tension, allowing water to sheet off instead of bead therefore, allowing dishes to dry faster.

Now the coolest thing, Finish Quantum.  Take a look at this picture.  You will notice that there are 3 compartments to each pack.

The white part contains enzymes and bleach activator.  Enzymes are needed to break down protein and starches like oatmeal, eggs and pasta.  The enzymes like the lower temperatures at the beginning of the cycle.  Once the water temperature reaches 140 degrees the enzymes are killed off.

The blue part contains bleach.  This is the second component because bleach (as well as heat)kill enzymes so we want those enzymes to work there magic before the bleach is activated.

And last, but not least is the red powerball shine gel.  This little red ball helps with the rinse function to leave your dishes drier, and lessens spotting and film on your dishes so they emerge sparkly clean.  

Some things you can do right now to make your dishwasher clean better


*Use Finish Dishwasher Cleaner so you will start off with a clean dishwasher
*Make sure you don't nest dishes or cutlery so they are exposed to get fully cleaned
*Test your water temperature.  Is it at least 120 degrees?
*Check out your dishwashers owner's manual for stacking diagrams
*If you use powdered soap don't store it under the sink.  Once it's exposed to moisture it will activate the cleaners automatically.  When you go to use it, it will be lumpy and will have lost it's cleaning ability
*Use Jet Dry for sparkly clean dishes and glassware with no spots



Well, that wraps up my Finish Blog tour.  I have found the experience very informative and I hoped that you learned something too!  A big thanks goes out to Mom Central Canada and Finish Canada
