Mean Green Multi Purpose Cleaner is the Bomb

Posted on December 7, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

We’ve only been using Mean Green for a short time now, but it’s so amazing.  My husband loves it, but not as much as me.  I was able to get an old coffee stain off of my countertop, with Mean Green Multi Purpose Cleaner.  That stain had been there for years, and it came right up.  I still can’t believe it.  My husband used Mean Green Super Strength in his garage, to get a grease stain off of his work bench, and again, the stain came right up.  It works so well, why would you go to any other brand.

Mean Green is good in any area, from your kitchen, to your bathroom, from outdoors, to your garage.  It’s a miracle worker, and I’m glad we finally discovered it.  Even in the laundry room, it takes the grease stains right out of my husband’s work clothes.  We love Mean Green!

The Mildew Destroyer surprised me, as well.  It got all the hard water stains out of our shower.  We love our nice, clean, white shower.  I have never felt this clean getting out of the shower before.

You really need to try the entire line, you will love it too, I’m sure of it.  I’ve never seen another cleaner this good.


Trusted by professionals and grown in popularity over the last 20 years by word-of-mouth recommendations alone, we thought it was about time we put our money where our mouth is and show how it has been proven over and over that Mean Green WORKS BETTER ON TOUGH GREASE & GRIME.

The Coobie Bra is a Great Holiday Gift

Posted on December 2, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews women

I gave one to my Mother In Law, and she loves it.  Says it’s the most comfortable bra she wears.  It’s a deep purple, Comfort Bra.  And, she says it is just that, “comfy”.  I will be ordering a few more, as well.  I do 13 stockings, over Christmas, and these would be wonderful for the women.  I had to have my Mother in law test the Comfort Bra out, just to see if I wanted to buy more, and surely I do.  We will all get a different color, to make sure none of them get confused, and this will be a great addition to the women’s stockings.

Their advertisement is surely true, according to Mom in law.  She says it’s truly the “Most Comfortable Bra Ever!”.  I’m glad that we came across The Coobie Store.  There are a variety of bras to choose from, but my mother in law loves the Comfort Bra.  The comfort bra goes over your head, like a sports bra, but gives you much support, she has stated to me.  Which is great for her, as she is a breast cancer survivor.  She needs that support, because her breasts can be uncomfortable.  However, the Comfort Bra is just what she needed.  The padding gives the little extra comfort that my mother in law needed.  She truly adores this bra.  I’ve got to get her another one, so she can wash the one she has on.

There are so many colors to choose from, I am sure your favorite color is one that is listed.

Take a look at The Coobie Store and all the bras they have to choose from, along with their other products.  You will fall in love with this bra, too.

Just in Time for Helping Clean Up ~ Mean Green Multi-Purpose Cleaner

Posted on November 30, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

Mean Green is amazing, and just in time for Christmas, I’ve discovered it.  Mean Green is a fabulous Multi Purpose Cleaner, that is helping me clean up, after my baking, and cooking for the Holidays.  My husband loves it, more than the leading brands.  He says, “Man, it really cuts the grease on the grill.”  My 20 year old, daughter, loves Mean Green, too.  She said that it really helped to clean up the stains on her work clothes.  “Just a couple of sprays, and in the wash, with a little Biz added, and pow, clean,” she said.

Mean Green is a great degreaser, and multi purpose cleaner.  Why would you buy anything else, once discovering Mean Green.  I gave a bottle to my Mother In Law, and her husband.  They used it on their car windows, and she said “streak free”.  My husband used it in the basement, where he’s remodeling, right now, and he said it really cleaned up the messes he’s made.

My mom, on the other hand, is using the Mean Green Wipes.  She loves them.  Says she did her windows, in the picture window.  She said that the windows came sparkling clean, and the Christmas Tree just sparkles.

There is an entire line of Mean Green products.  We currently are using the Multi purpose line, but we will be investing in all of the products available.  I have seen how well the Multi Purpose Cleaner works, so I can just imagine the other products work wonders, as well.

talent.. A mermaid named Fan is determined to get Tasi in trouble before she can impress

her father ,the king.Tasi has a chance to prove her gift is more than a silly hobby when a

explosion of lava threatens the Castle.Will she be able to rally the help she needs in time to save

her family from the danger from the deep? Or will Fan succeed in making Tasi look like a fool in front of the entire kingdom?

Enchantails Grileglas Realm : Lucienne and the Leopard Boy Book 1
