Tried & Loved (Or Not): Homemade Cleaning Products

Homemade Cleaning Products

There are so many different homemade cleaning products recipes out there, aren’t they? For laundry, dusting, cleaning and disinfecting. I have been using a couple of them of for many years and i would never go back to store bought industrial alternatives. Yes, baking soda is awesome. So is olive oil. And you still can breathe while using them. I have not tried using hydrogen peroxide or borax, i use what there’s in the home and essential oils. Especially lemon, i love that smell.

Like in all things, in homemade cleaning products too, there are a few ones i was not impressed with and have only used them once and never before. Maybe i did not choose the best recipe to try, but we can’t DIY everything. There also some that i have never tried making, like homemade laundry detergent.  So, without further ado, here’s my honest opinion after having used of few of all these homemade cleaning products.

Weekend Finds: Finding The Perfect Desk Organizer

Ideas For The Perfect Desk Organizer

Our bedroom makeover is complete and we finally have a room we actually enjoy. Well, me at least! My dear husband doesn’t care about it anyway.  In that bedroom we only have a dresser on one side, which works as a nightstand too, and on the other side there’s our home office-nightstand. A IKea Vitssjo laptop table made a bit bigger. Another Ikea hack. That one is also my sewing table. When there is not much space one piece of furniture has a lot of job to do, right? Despite that, it still needs a beautiful desk organizer.

Well, that desk has a lamp, some greenery and what it needs is a desk organizer, preferably under $30. While searching for one, i found lots and lots of desk organizers i loved. And i am sharing them with you, hoping to find the perfect one for me and for you.  I can’t say i like the classic mesh organizers, they remind me of an office environment.  But, there are beautiful acrylic, wooden, leather options. And even some gorgeous steel ones, that do not have the classic mesh look.

Making a Wine Bottle Table Lamp And A Popsicle Sticks Lampshade

 This post contains affiliate links to products, similar to the ones, used for making this DIY Wine Bottle Table Lamp. Thank you for supporting Bisozozo.

I made this lamp back in the summer and i thought that i was the only one that liked it. Turns out i was wrong! We use it in our bedroom, as a nightstand-home office lamp and when i shared it during the $100 Room Challenge last month i was impressed by the reactions. So i decided to make share with you today how we made this DIY Wine Bottle Table Lamp.

Που λέτε λοιπόν, έφτιαξα αυτή την λάμπα κάποια στιγμή μέσα στο καλοκαίρι και νόμιζα ότι άρεσε μόνο σε μένα. Αλλά από ότι φαίνεται έκανα λάθος. Την χρησιμοποιούμε στο κομοδίνο-γραφείο μας και όταν την μοιράστηκα κατά την διάρκεια της ανανέωσης δωματίου με $100 εντυπωσιάστηκα με τις αντιδράσεις. Έτσι λοιπόν αποφάσισα να να σας δείξω πως φτιάξαμε αυτή την λάμπα.

Weekend Finds: Black Lacquered Credenzas And Buffets

Black Lacquered Credenzas And Buffets

This post contains affiliate links to black lacquered credenzas and buffets.

Yes, i know. They are not the most practical pieces of furniture out there, but they are beautiful! Black lacquered credenzas and buffets. I love them. Although taking care of them is not an easy thing, they are just gorgeous! Like a piece of jewellery for our homes. We have a small black sideboard, not lacquered. But with a toddler around here and another one on the way lacquered would not be a good idea. But as he grows older, i am definitely getting one!

Ναι, το ξέρω, το ξέρω. Δεν είναι και ότι πιο πρακτικό κυκλοφορεί σε έπιπλο, αλλά είναι πανέμορφοι! Οι μαύροι λακαριστοί μπουφέδες! Τρελαίνομαι! Αν και η φροντίδα τους δεν είναι εύκολη, είναι υπέροχοι, δεν είναι? Σαν κοσμήματα! Έχουμε ένα μικρό μαύρο μπουφέ στο σπίτι μας, αλλά όχι λακαριστό. Βέβαια, με ένα νήπιο εδώ και ένα ακόμη στο δρόμο, με μικρά παιδιά στο σπίτι γενικότερα, η λάκα και δεν είναι και πολύ καλή ιδεά! Αλλά…δεν θα μου την γλυτώσει ένας όταν μεγαλώσουν!
