For the last four months, I’ve been testing several Arm & Hammer products and sharing my experiences with you. I may have said it before, but I do laundry every single day.

I am delighted to be one of twenty bloggers featured in Arm & Hammer’s Switch & Save Challenge. During the next five months, I’ll be testing several Arm & Hammer products and sharing my experiences with you. We all know that children are expensive, but who would ever have thought that pets would cost almost as much? Mine surely do. They’re members of the family, though, and their expenses are not going away. Between specialty dry food (because one of my cats gets recurrent UTIs), specialty canned food (because my cats have stuck-up palettes), flea and tick treatments (because they … Read more
