I love to visit this HOME - I call it: one of my favorite places on the planet and it is only a 15 minute drive... Loretto Maryholme.
Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/www.lorettomaryholme.ca < say hello :) I have been blessed to be a guest several times! I am even more blessed to have ‘the women’ of Maryholme as my friends. ❤
Sr. Jane, Jane, Mary, Cathy - the part time cook (and full time friend- lol) and Slava!
Just to name a few of the ladies.
I especially LIKE Slava! IMO she is a a woman that 'rocks'. LOL I don’t know her very well, but the few times I h
ave met and had time to talk I find her very interesting and FULL of handy hints!!! Also full of energy and :) . Slava is responsible for keeping MaryHolme looking and smelling (lol) all that it is -
Clean and fresh and Welcoming!!!
It is a lot of work! Maryholme is all about details if you ask me, and one of them is how clean it is.
A while back Slava told me about boiling cedar - to use as a household cleaner and gave me some. Simple, boiled cedar.. I use it as a furniture cleaner! Norm makes our furniture so it is all real wood, it is all I have been using for years now and my stuff - I admit, looks great. Simple. I cant remember the last time I bought furniture polish! Bonus right there.
Well she gave me a 'jug' a few weeks back of her home made, Money saving$$$, laundry detergent. I tried it and again - LOVED it! It is even better than the first cleaner and trust me, I've been putting it to the test! Then I poured 1/2 in a spray bottle and watered it down and use it for EVERYTHING!
For example: I have a white board in the kitchen - Norm’s ‘Honey do’ list! LOL
Trust me - it gets dirty!! Nothing cleans it - Slava’s soap does!
I use it for everything from spraying directly on grease stains - OR should I say 'Storm does'. hee hee hee. On counters, furniture, table tops, furniture & laundry!
I am NOT putting any unnecessary HARSH chemicals in our bodies or home if I can help it.
When we know better - we do better & every little bit helps ;)
TRY it if you don’t believe me! I had to know how it is made and Slava gave me a lesson! ❤ Now I’m sharing it with you.
You can find all these money saving recipes on PIN - It really does save big bucks! Why not? A bit of work wil go a long way. I am going to explain in the photos below as Slava did to me and the basic recipe she used is also provided below.
***The trick that makes Slavas, just ‘that much’ better- instead of just using ‘regular water’ She used *water that had been boiled with the cedar!!!
That is it. So have a look below! It is all I have been & all I will continue to use.
I’d like to save my money $ & have my home clean, fresh and closer to nature in all ways.
Thank you Slava!
LOL - I invited myself to lunch I bet she is an amazing cook!
Time will tell.
If you want a beautiful place to refresh, relax and just feel GOOD, peaceful, loving vibes - and GOOD homemade cooking! Comfort food!
I highly recommend staying at Loretto Maryholme.
Every time I am there I feel LOVE.
They have a women’s retreat in AUGUST!
I am giving it serious thought! Anyone care to join me???
