Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Gel Cleaner – Review & Giveaway!


As a Purex Insider, I received the NEW Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Stain Remover Gel for review.  The NEW Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Stain Remover features:

  • No Harsh Fumes or Overspray
  • Spray Gel that Clings to Stains
  • Cleans Tile, Grout, Showers & More


The New Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Gel is a unique spray gel that is tough on stays and is gentle on surfaces.  It’s thick gel clings to bathroom surfaces to penetrate and remove tough stains… without  those harsh fumes or overspray.  This stain remover is absolutely perfect for cleaning tile, grout, tubs, showers, along with most other surfaces in the bathroom.

I tried the Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Gel in our upstairs bathroom – which needed a good cleaning anyway.  I  sprayed the ‘problem areas’ of the tub surround (tile) and the tub itself (porcelain), and noticed that the gel stayed where I sprayed it!  I let it sit for a minute, then I scrubbed the walls and tub down with warm  water. Wow!  I was thoroughly impressed with how well it got rid of the spots of mildew, dirt, and gunk, leaving my tub/shower area sparkly clean!

I really like how New Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Gel really CLEANS well, and quickly too.  And I am enamored that it’s a gel in a spray bottle, with great clinging power!

Vegas and the Mob Classic Blast

Cosmic Blast

CoverVegasandtheMobVegas and the Mob

The truth about Las Vegas, unlike the watered-down versions you might have heard elsewhere. Sin City was the Mob’s greatest venture and most spectacular success, and through forty years of frenzy, the FBI watched, listened on phone tapes, and did virtually nothing. Thank goodness for that, because Vegas wouldn’t be what it is today without the Mob!

Two of the nation’s most powerful crime family heads went to prison in the 1930’s, Al Capone, and Lucky Luciano. Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit while, Frank Costello ran things for the Luciano Family. Both men were influenced by their bosses from prison, and both sent enough gangsters onto the streets to influence loan sharking, extortion, union control, and drug sales.

Bugsy Siegel worked for both groups, handling a string of murders and opening up gaming on the west coast, and that included Las Vegas, an oasis of sin in the middle of the desert – and it was legal. Most of it. The FBI watched as the Mob took control of casino after casino, killed off the competition, and stole enough money to bribe their way to respectability back home.

New York’s “Lucky Luciano” was getting a taste of the profits in the 1930’s, Detroit, Kansas City, and Chicago weren’t far behind. By the 1940’s, nearly every crime family in the United States had a stake in a Las Vegas casino. Some did better than others. Vegas casino owners watched-over their profits while competing crime families eyed each other’s success like jealous lovers. Murder often followed.

authorphotoAbout Al W Moe

Al W Moe was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and introduced to the casinos of Nevada at the age of eleven. At the time he had never seen such an amazing array of sights, sounds, and exciting games. Little has changed since that first introduction.

Moe is the author of six books and has written for Gambling Times/Poker Player, and Casino and Gaming Chips Magazine. His love for casinos and the history of gambling are only exceeded by the thrill he gets learning new casino games and his desire to teach new players how to get the most for their money at the casino.


Moe attended the University of Nevada at Reno and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Marketing. He especially enjoys the disciplines of probability and statistics.

From Al W Moe:

Casinos and the games they offer have occupied my thinking most of my life. The early casino owners, especially when it involved the Mob in Las Vegas are a fascinating subject. It is amazing the Mob was able to skim the profits of clubs in Nevada for over 40 years. The story of how they did it is even more amazing!

Crowdtap Old Navy Activewear Sample & Share Review

Old Navy Active Top & Bottom

As an active member of Crowdtap, I was fortunate enough to be chosen to be a part of the Old Navy Style Council and receive two vouchers for a Free Old Navy Activewear Top and Bottom – one for me and one for a friend  I have been an active member of Crowdtap for a few years now – the surveys and activities are fun, as are the rewards, and I like that my input is valued by the Crowdtap Team.  And the best part is when you complete some activities, a donation goes to the charity of your choice (mine is Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation).  

Interested in joining Crowdtap?  Check it out HERE!


Going to Old Navy and checking out the Activewear Line was great!  I loved just about all the Activewear products, it was so difficult to choose just one top and bottom for each of us.  I was very impressed with the cleanliness, how orderly and stocked the store was!  Especially the Activewear section!  See these great photos I took below!





The Old Navy Activewear Line has line has lots of vibrant colors, but we decided to keep it pretty tame…

I decided to get  a magenta compression tank and black yoga pants with a magenta waist band… And my friend decided to get a grey long sleeve running top and black shorts (not necessarily to be worn together I think!)…

We had a great time shopping, spending quality time together, and of course, getting some Old Navy Activewear so we have no excuse not to exercise on a regular basis!


NaBloPoMo June 2013 – Theme: Roots

So we’re going to try this again. And succeed!

June’s NaBloPoBlo theme is ROOTS.

“Roots.  They’re the stories that ground you, the foods that returns you, the music that comforts you, and the people who know you.  Everyone has roots that influence them even if they don’t consciously know them or can’t access them.

This month, we’re going to explore your roots.  Were going to look back on the people in your family, the places where your ancestors have lived, and the culture that has been passed along to you.  We hope you get curious enough to explore your family tree, or maybe even end up planning a trip to a town where your ancestors once lived.”

I look forward to this challenge to writing and exploring my ROOTS.  I hope you are too!  Stay tuned!
