Back to School Spree Giveaway Hop (Ends 8/31) U.S.

Welcome to the Back to School Spree Giveaway Hop hosted by 

 Formula Mom and 7 on a Shoestring!  There are just over 100 blogs participating, and you are sure to find items that you can use as you prepare your family to get back into the swing of school.

I have two great sponsors for my giveaway.  And these items are things that I think everyone can use whether you have kids around or not.

In our household, we have fourteen cats, one dog, four goats, some fish, one child, and three adults.  We live in the country, and you might be able to guess that we have issues with stains on a regular basis.  I am always glad when I am able to find things that can help us get rid of stains whether they are on clothing or the carpet.

Kids 'N' Pets is a company that has a solution to this issue.  They have stain-removing products that have no harsh chemicals, and they are safe to use around kids.  They are committed to providing products that are perfect for cleaning up stains and spills whether they are caused by kids, parents, or even you!  Not only do they care about your family and pets, but they are also committed to providing their products to individuals and organizations that are committed to the adoption of pets.

I was fortunate enough to receive a 32 oz. squirt bottle of this wonderful product featured above:  Kids 'N' Pets Instant All-Purpose Stain & Odor Remover.  My mom was the first one to use this.  She added it to laundry as it recommended on the instructions, and it seemed to work just as well as any other stain remover or laundry booster.  The difference was that this is all-natural with no harsh chemicals or perfumes.  

It was just this past week that I really got to put this item to the test, however.  We took our wonderful indoor cat, Dusty, to the vet.  You can imagine that was an unhappy cat, but he still slept next to my daughter (as he normally does) all night long.  She showed me in the morning that her cat had evidently bled some on the sheets.  He had some shots, so that would make sense.  I got the sheets off her bed, but then she showed me the carpet.  There were some blood spots there as well.  I immediately ran for this stain remover, and I squirted it on the stain.  We took off, and when I came back, my mom had already cleaned up the spots (she thought it was cat urine because I had not cleaned it up yet, and she was amazed when I told her!).  The spots were completely gone!  I was so impressed!  In fact, when I had to clean something up on the carpet today, I was pretty upset to realize that this stain remover was gone, and what I had to use in its place was not nearly as good!

KIDS 'N' PETS is available at Wal-Mart for as little as $4.98; and many 
grocery stores nationwide.  (You will find KIDS 'N' PETS in the 
cleaning section near the mops and brooms.)  KIDS 'N' PETS can also be 
purchased on, and  To learn more

So, I'm wondering, do you have ant problems?  Probably a dumb question to ask because I have never known anyone who doesn't have some kind of bug problem.  And ants can often be the most annoying!

It seems like whenever I have a bug problem, I always tend to think of using a spray before anything else, but as you know, sprays are not always the best solution.  Sprays take care of the immediate problem, but as you probably know, in a short time, they will be back.  You can spray and spray and spray the ants, and they will probably be back the next day.  Why?  Because you have not targeted them at the source!

Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait and Ant Gel is what you need to target the source of your problem.  Ants are drawn to sources of water and food, and these baits and gels provide exactly what the ants are looking for.  The ants eat the gel, and then they take it back to the colony.  They share it with the colony, and this ensures that more of the ants are killed than traditional spray. 

I know the concern about any kind of insecticides is how it will affect your kids and/or pets.  Thankfully, the ingredients in Combat are formulated to affect ants, not humans nor pets.  They do recommend hand washing.  It is also good to watch for signs that your pet may have ingested the gel, but it is highly unlikely.  This does give me peace of mind seeing how we have so many animals.

The real test it actually trying these products.  I have been a Combat customer ever since I lived in Florida.  Cockroaches were the issue there, but we do have ants here in Washington state.  While we haven't been able to try everything in the kit yet, we have plans to use this in the garage as we turn it into a playroom for my daughter.  We don't have an ant problem at present, but we know that as soon as we do, these Combat products will be the products to use.  We have seen these ant baits and gels work, and we have complete confidence in these products.  

Right now, you can enter to win a Combat $1000 sweepstakes.  Click here to enter.

Now, you may be wondering exactly what I am giving away today.  Well, both of my sponsors have chipped in to give you a wonderful prize pack that includes the following:
