Celebrate Canada’s 150th and #Giveaway #ChurchAndDwight #ad CAN 03/07

This giveaway has ended.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with that little orange box in your fridge, freezer or baking cupboard. Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda has been helping generations of Canadian families cook and clean for decades.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Over the years, the team at Arm & Hammer – with the help of their loyal fans – have come up with more than 100 uses for baking soda and I’m sharing some of my favourites here.

  • Baby, baby, baby. Baking soda is an all-natural cleaning product that’s gentle enough for even the tiniest baby clothes, yet effective enough for big baby odours. It can be used to treat spills on carpets, clean equipment and toys, deodorize baby bottles and diaper pails as well as freshen stuffed animals to give them a new life.
  • Have you tried it in the bathroom? It helps remove the dirt and grime from bathroom tiles or no-wax floors quickly and easily. It’s also effective at cleaning shower curtains, deodorizing drains and wastebaskets, surface-safe cleaning and for septic system care.
  • Not just for cooking in the kitchen. Yes, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is a staple baking ingredient as it causes dough or batter to rise, becoming light and porous when heated, but it can also be used in the kitchen to clean lunch boxes, microwave ovens, dishes, pots and pans, recyclables, drains and garbage disposals. Did I mention it removes odours from plastic containers, polishes silver, freshens sponges and stinky sinks, refreshes tea pots, cups and mugs and works great as a fruit and vegetable scrub? It’s also a common deodorizer for fridges and freezers. Changing the box regularly (every 30 days is recommended) helps ensure optimal odour elimination.
  • Don’t fret about your floors. It helps remove unsightly scuff marks without unwanted scratch marks from tile and no-wax floors. It’s also great at neutralizing common household odours and freshens stale-smelling air in your home.
  • Tackles the greasiest of garages. Arm & HammerBaking Soda safely cleans your car lights, chrome, windows, tires, vinyl seats and floor mats without you having to worry about unwanted scratch marks. It’s also a great deodorizer for car interiors and camper water tanks and tackles oil and grease stains on your garage floor or driveway.
  • Smelly gear no more. Use Arm & Hammer baking soda to clean and deodorize smelly sports equipment like hockey or camping gear, as well as gym bags.
  • Don’t forget to take it outside. It is a must-have for your next camping trip! It’s a dish and pot scrubber, hand cleanser and deodorant, just to name a few. It also cleans your plastic and vinyl pool toys as well as lawn furniture when it’s time to bring them out for the summer and works wonders on barbecue grills.

And that’s not all!

Because of the gentle and all natural formula of Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda, it’s a popular personal hygiene product for many. It can be used as a body and facial scrub, hand cleanser and a refreshing bath soak. It also helps to fight bad breath and body odour and is great for washing hair.img_0452For a full list of these 100 uses of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and usage instructions, visit www.armandhammer.ca.

A&H Spinbrush/Toothpaste #Giveaway CAN 21/09 #AHCleanFresh

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED

Canadians’ oral health habits vary; regardless of what you’ve been doing up until now (or not) you should be watching out for the dangers associated with poor oral health that extend beyond just cavities … oral pain, missing teeth and infections!  You don’t have to suffer!oral-health-careI find that the 2016 adult product line-up, Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh Spinbrush and Toothpaste is exciting for several reasons:

  • Whitens and strengthens tooth enamel
  • Removes plaque
  • Special floss tip bristles get deep between teeth
  • Helps promote healthy brushing
  • Massages gums
  • Gentle cleaning
  • and even more reasons

With a soft, light buzz you’ll discover that the Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh Spinbrush and Toothpaste will reach the back of the teeth effectively.  For the lower cost (compared to high-priced electric toothbrushes), the Spinbrush does the job nicely.  Changing the batteries and the replacement heads is easy.   The toothpaste gives a fresh/cool sensation … with a light foam and small bubbles, stains are brushed away.  For me (a coffee drinker) this is a very good thing.

Loving Your Cat Meow and Furever: It’s International Cat Day! #ChurchDwightValue #InternationalCatDay

It’s International Cat Day on August 8th and the makers of Arm & Hammer™ want to ensure your cat is well taken care of to celebrate this pawsitively fantastic occasion!

A&H Cat Litter image 3

With cats, a clean environment is key – so it’s crucial to maintain a tidy and comfortable space in their home.  Arm & Hammer™ Clump & Seal™ Complete Odour Sealing Cat Litter provides a 7-day odour-free home, guaranteed – great for you and your cat! This revolutionary formula seals and destroys odours before they can leave the litter box. Its plant-derived particles help create rock hard clumps for easy scooping, and its fine micro-particles ensure ultra-low dust when pouring or scooping – this helps keep litter in the box instead of on your kitty’s feet.  Plus your cat will love the new softer feel!

In the spirit of International Cat Day, here are some examples of worldwide positive cat-titude:

A-Latte Love for Whiskers

Cat cafés have become an international phenomenon – with cities like Paris, Berlin and Montreal pouncing on the bandwagon. Stop by for coffee and enjoy the company of new furry friends!

Cat Crazed

Search cat videos online and you’ll find endless results. That’s why many North American animal shelters annually host cat-themed festivals showcasing feline videos for a good cause.

On the A-List

Speaking of cats and the internet, this list wouldn’t be complete without Grumpy Cat. The Internet sensation has published books, won awards and posed for the cover of New York Magazine. She even has over 7 million likes on her Facebook page – talk about a cat leading the pack!

Fun Fact: Today, some cats are viewed as celebrities, but in Ancient Egypt, they were considered divine.[1]

Pet Ownership is the Cat’s Meow in Canada

In the never ending battle between cats and dogs, felines actually edge out canines. While 37% of Canadians own one or more cats, only 32% own a dog.[2]

Despite which furry friend you own at home, both cats and dogs are considered part of the family. Dog owners believe their pets offer them improved physical health while cat owners believe their pets offer them improved mental health.[3]

How will you celebrate your cat’s big day?
