The Holiday season is coming up in the next few months.
And I have decided to put out a post to let everyone know that Basically Speaking is accepting submissions for the 2016 gift guide. The gift guide will help our readers to find information about products while they are deciding what to purchase for their loved ones this holiday season. (This mom also loves learning about new products for gift giving. And for products that I want to own in my home. )
I review the products along with my husband and two children. My daughter is 15 years old and my son is 11 years old. I also have younger relatives who can contribute to reviews items. We also have a Schnoodle dog and a Siamese cat who also review products for those with fur babies.
When does the Gift Guide Start:
From November 1st until December 21st, I will be featuring gift ideas on Basically Speaking. This will be a great way to let the readers learn more about your products while they are making a decision on what to buy for their loved ones. (I know Gift Guides help this mom out when deciding what to buy for her family. )

Most of us don’t think about cleaning our washing machine because we assume that when we put laundry detergent in, that it would clean our washing machine. I mean after all if it cleans our clothes it should clean our machine.

I usually remember to do this when I am doing my spring or fall cleaning.
It is very easy to do with a top loader and front loader.
