Secret Clinical Strength

I've tried SO many deodorants in the past.  I tried clear, solid, gel, men's, women's, etc.  I bought Secret Clinical Strength about 5 1/2 years ago and haven't had to try another deodorant since!  Doug really likes the smell of the Light and Fresh Scent too.  I used to worry all the time about sweating and smelling bad, but this stuff has taken my worries away.  Of course I still sweat, but my concerns are not in the front of my mind all the time now. 

It crossed my mind that I haven't posted about this deodorant...I was thinking about my 5 year anniversary coming up tomorrow and I used this deodorant on my wedding day - imagine a hot wedding dress on a 100+ degree day and the wedding was outside...I was sweating!!  But I wasn't worried about my deodorant at all!

Magic Bullet Juicer

I decided to give our Magic Bullet a try again. I took everything out of the cupboard it's been sitting in for years because I wanted to try the juicer attachment. We were looking at getting a juicer and I thought, "Why not try the one we already have?" Well, this is why:That mess is 4 oranges cut into wedges and put through the Magic Bullet Juicer. All it did was smash them up and make a mess for me to clean up.

This is all the juice I got from those 4 oranges; I would have gotten much more if I would have juiced them by hand.
Although I joked about it, I actually gave my other Magic Bullet (the 2nd one I got free for ordering the first one) to my mom; she didn't use it either, but it ended up as a raffle prize to raise money for my grandma's nursing home. Hopefully the 3rd owner isn't as disappointed as I am with this product. The one we've had and used about 5 times over the last 5 years is now in a box and going to be donated.

I've tried both of these products for over a year and they don't work on cats. The liquid version in the spray bottle smells terrible; you will think something died in your yard. I highly recommend wearing gloves if you use this product. I got some on my finger and I tried soap, rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover and finally bleach to get the smell off my finger. I sprayed a lot in one area of our yard that a cat has been digging and not even a few days later the bark was dug up again.The granule version seemed to work okay last year, but looking back it didn't stop the cat(s) from pooping on our patio furniture. I keep trying to get these products to work, but they don't. I'll keep using them until I run out and I'll try to find another way. Saturday I put a mixture of jalapeno juice, red pepper flakes and chili powder in our yard, so we'll see how that works.
