Throwback Product Review: Zep Commercial Quick Clean Disinfectant & All Around Oxy

This was the VERY FIRST mission I applied for and was accepted for from CROWDTAP back in September 2014.  I figured it was a GREAT start to my journey – something I truly never used before. I got five small bottles FREE- three of the Quick Clean Disinfectant and two of the All Around Oxy. I had heard of Zep but honestly had only thought it was products for mechanics and contractors.  So learning more about the brand from Crowdtap was very informative.   At first I was thinking what am I really going to accomplish with these small bottles – like three months later I understood.  The amount of product needed to do a cleaning task blew my mind.

Quick Clean Disinfectant: This is a great everyday mess cleaner.  And it is perfect for killing germs of all kinds – here is a snippet from Zep Commercial site:

  • Kills 99.9% of bacteria in 5 Seconds
  • Kills common kitchen & bathroom bacteria
  • Effective virucide, kills cold (rhinovirus) & flu virus, HIV, Canine Parvovirus
  • Cleans, disinfects, deodorizes in one easy step
  • Staphylococcus aureus (Staph), Klebsiella pneumonia
  • For use on: Hard, Non-Porous Surfaces- Stainless Steel, Formica, Glass, Glazed Porcelain, Plastic, Floors, Walls, Metal Surfaces, Glazed Ceramic Tile, Bathrooms, Shower Stalls, Bathtubs, and Cabinets, Sealed Granite, Sealed Stone.

This is great for me because I get grossed out easily and like to know things I am using and touching every day are as clean as possible. I am not one of those people who wear gloves or anything like that – I do accept that there are germs everywhere.  I just try to wash my hands often as possible. And I try to be conscious of any kind of messes  both at home and work.

I use this one for quick wipe downs after feeding the cat, making a messy snack or for the counter and sink after dinner dishes.  Quick Clean it is –  I spray it in the sink and let is set for a a few seconds and give a quick scrub down and hit it with the hot water. Clean sink easy peasy.  I have since bought a full size bottles and kept the small ones for refills to keep everywhere! Always where I need it!

All Around Oxy: This formula is great for those more heavier grimier messes.

  • Quickly cleans virtually any hard or soft surfaces
  • Powers out stains and grease without leaving harsh fumes
  • For use on countertops, granite, laminate, formica, porcelain, ceramic, engineered stone, stainless steel, appliances, most types of carpet, upholstery, kitchen and household surfaces
  • Not for use on leather, silk, suede, sensitive stone surfaces, marble or any surfaces harmed by water
  • Do not mix with bleach or any other household products
  • Cleans pet stains such as vomit, urine and feces from carpet
  • Cleans pet stains such as vomit, urine and feces from fabric
  • Gets rid of red wine stains in fabric and clothing
  • Removes and gets rid of blood stains in carpet
  • Removes and gets rid of blood stains in fabric
  • Removes coffee stains out of carpet
  • Removes coffee stains out of fabric
  • Removes red wine stains from carpet   

I cut my finger right over my Grandma’s brand new rug not long after I got the Crowdtap mission.  It was beige and Gram was pissed lol.  So I blotted the blood with a paper towel and then sprayed some of this All Around Oxy on and let it sit and I could see the blood working it’s way up out of the fabric and I was able to use a toothbrush and warm wet paper towel to do a little scrubbing it out and it after it dried I was amazed to see no red ring or remaining stain at all. I most frequently use this for my cat Bubba’s messu hairballs everywhere and anywhere!!

Overall very recommended products, find them in Lowe’s, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Walmart.  Great prices too!

Product Review: Meta Health Bar

FREE Sample of Meta Health Bar, Provided by Walmart.com thru Freeflys.com

This sample could not have come at a better time! I have recently decided to commit myself to

MY OWN HEALTH AND WELL BEING             for once and it started with a physical last week where I was told I need to lose 20 pounds (at least) and to incorporate more Fiber into my diet immediately.
Yesterday I got my multi vitamins, fiber chews and calcium chews to get me started on the path to a healthier me and overall healthier lifestyle.

I come home from work today and had this sample waiting for me.

META HEALTH BAR CINNAMON OATMEAL RAISIN, I am not a huge fan of Cinnamon but I’m still going to try it.
Just reading the wrapper I see that the benefits fit my needs by promoting digestive health (I have some issues lol) as well as being a satisfying healthy snack!! It also helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health (which I am hoping my lab work comes back showing I don’t have this issue lol)
It does say to drink with a 8oz favorite hot or cold beverage, I am assuming to round out the snack to keep you fuller longer. Until I read the rest of the directions and it actually a Notice stating “eating this product without enough liquid may cause choking.  Umm yea that kinda scares me.

I ate my normal breakfast today, had a frozen diet meal for lunch and a decent dinner (nothing diet there lol) and then did a ton of laundry, took a shower and now ready to do some blogging (as you can see) and read some emails etc before settling into some tv.

But hmmmm I’m a bit hungry, normally I would go for a bag of cheetos, and king cone or some other junk food but since I got this sample today and have no other healthy snack alternative I am going to give it a whirl, be back soon….

7 Minutes Later lol…

Before even opening you can feel the bar is soft yet firm which makes for a chewy yet surprisingly “crunchy” for a soft bar.  The aroma is spot on = Oatmeal and Cinnamon. Definitely far from bland but don’t expect rich sweetness like say a Quaker Oats Granola Bar.  As I said earlier I am not a huge Cinnamon fan but don’t get me wrong it is not overpowering at all.  The oats are a good size which provide the right texture so you feel it is not as over processed as others. There is some kind of drizzle which might taste good and add that extra umph but I feel there is not enough of it to even really taste what it is.  So I only ate half but it did fill some of that hunger void. I happened to be drinking a Diet Vitamin Water at the time but I did not finish it.  Oh and I didn’t choke…maybe that “Notice” is just a sad reminder of the world we live in where companies basically have to state the obvious to avoid a lawsuit.

Incidentally I had to go to CVS and I had a coupon for $1.49 off a $1.99 Meta Bar so I chose Cranberry Lemon Drizzle – I am excited this flavor is much more me.  I will update this post by Wednesday.


UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE:

So I tried the Cranberry Lemon Drizzle on Wednesday night and I was absolutely delighted.  Upon opening I didn’t get a huge burst of aroma which I kinda wanted but I took a bite and yummy the lemon and cranberry flavors pop out each in their own flavor but also as a combination of flavors.  This bar was definitely had more of a rich sweetness to it.  The drizzle on this bar was more apparent and I could actually taste a hint of lemon in it.  This time I ate about 3/4 of the bar because it actually filled me and I was quite satisfied so I will definitely be buying some more of these.  Happy to have found something to serve as both a yummy satisfying snack AND a fiber “supplement” to get me and keep me on a healthier path!!!
