Beauty Faves like Batiste have coupons currently. Shave off some dollars on stuff you’re buying anyway, we say! If you’ve been wanting to try these foundation and contour brushes they’re more than half off and it comes with a silicon blender which we’re dying to try! These are a must for brush washing. This Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub is awesome and half off! If you’ve been wanting to try the cult favorite Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick this threesome is only $20 (down from $36) and has amazing color options. We were sent this Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask to try out and it is amazing! Its also confusing because its not a peel, you simply wipe it off, but you will see amazing results on the texture and smoothness of your skin in just one use, promise! Its become an instant fave over here.
Cleaning the oven is arguably in my top 5 least favorite household tasks. Yet when I open up the oven when its clean it gives me so much pride! It always felt like such a production with the sprays you find in the store. They’re crazy potent and horrible for the environment so it’s tracking down rubber gloves, it’s using cloth after cloth. Its a headache, literally. I recently found a more environmentally friendly way to clean that works amazing well, so I wanted to share! You know we have the whole Maytag set up in our house and the oven has proven to be just as great as the rest of the crew. So of course I want it to be sparkling inside like the outside remains to this day. Yep that fingerprint resistant stainless steel is legit!! And the front only needs water to clean, so don’t be trying this mixture out on the outside!
Okay, here’s what you’ll need:
Baking Soda and Vinegar. Seriously that’s it, you’ve got all the things, right? YES! Next mix 1/2 c of baking soda and three tablespoons of water. It will create a paste like consistency. Then take out your racks and save those for later. Next you spread that paste ALL over the INSIDE of the oven. Just the inside, remember the door just needs water, and the Maytag Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish cleans right up no problem.
Once you have the paste coated inside let it dry as best as you can. Over night, a few hours, whatever you can do. If you cook as much as I do you could wait a few weeks. 😉 Then take spray bottle of vinegar, and spritz the whole oven with it. It will start to sizzle, this is very satisfying. This will make it easier to scrape off the baking soda and you will be amazed at what comes up with it!
What to do with oven racks? I have been known to fill up the bathtub and let them soak in there for awhile. So much easier than trying to manhandle it over the sink! Then your oven will look good as new, I promise. And you didn’t even have to don a haz mat suit to wield the oven cleaner spray!
Besides that fingerprint resistant stainless steel I have been loving the Precision Cooking system. It has Precise Bake, Precise Heat, and Precise Broil which heats so quickly and evenly I feel like my baking is so much more consistent now especially! I know a lot of you are building and moving around this year so if you have any questions about any of the Maytag items we’ve featured this past year just holler! I can’t recommend them enough. Now that you’ve learned all about our new Maytag products, you can check out the upcoming May is Maytag Month promotions. Go to Maytag.com this May 2017 for more information.
