Clorox Wipes Make Over

I love Clorox Wipes and use them all the time,
so I wanted to keep them out on the kitchen counter where
they are convenient to use!  But that container sure is ugly!
I had a candle hurricane that fit exactly over the
container, so I slid a piece of scrap book 
 paper  in between them and had an instant makeover!




Much better!

  1. I just bought some but have not used them yet - great idea. Looks much classier!

    1. Look who's first! :)

      I love them...I use them in the kitchen, bathrooms...no rinsing or anything. So convenient!

      Delete
  2. Okay, good. Because I have never used them before and was a little nervous about having to rinse after - which would be a pain but I would do it if necessary.

    Yes indeed F I R S T! Although it seems to be more important to your male readership to be first. Maybe I should delete this and wait... and wait... and wait.. :-)

    2. Not sure what you mean, I'm sure, Suza ROFL
      Of course I can't speak for the others!
      btw You're early!! lol
      Is that so, Betsy? haha!

    3. I figured you'd both get lost in and I'd never see you again! lol....

    4. Well I'm not lost but I don't know about the other one!! lol

    6. Poor Eddie Bluelights
      Nicked a vein
      Whatever you do
      Don't try it again!

      Blood is to donate
      Don’t let it flow
      Keep it inside you
      Can’t risk running low

      A bath is for bathing
      Not bleeding and such
      Please no more leaking
      It’s really too much!

      Delete
    7. Although Betsy sometimes may call me Bert
      I'll try my best not to let my veins squirt.
      I always make sure now when I take a shower
      I avoid any leaks, whose repairs take an hour.

      You are right when you say I must keep my blood
      And keep donating and donating and to be very good.
      I have given an armful and now it looks very white
      So I must switch arms or it will just not look right.

      Thank you for the poem - it was very funny
      Your writing is great - do you do it for money?
      Have you ventured from here to my latest post
      About Mickey, my budgie and Eddie your host?

      lol

      Delete
    8. Awww, I love it, Eddie!

      Lest we take too much space
      In Betsy's fine place
      I will send you an e-mail
      With a little more detail

      :-)

    9. OK, Suza, over to there I am walking
      I expect the others will soon be talking!!

      lol

      Delete
    10. I beseech you, dear Suza, my heart strings to tug not
      You've not sent an email enclosing your mugshot.

      ROFL

  3. By the way, I love that little, tiered stand too. So many uses. And the fruit in the lovely frame with lattice work. Is that a bulletin board? You are so clever!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've had that tiered stand forever! Yes, that's a little memo board...just made it out of fabric, ribbon and upholstery tacks in a frame. I slide my recipe cards in there when I'm baking.

      Delete
  4. That is so very clever and practical to have on the counter top. I must go looking for a glass vase that will work. I have them all over the house too, but out of sight. Let's see blue paper for the bathroom, yellow for the kitchen...You've started something Betsy!!

    1. I have them in the bathrooms, too. Maybe we could just cover the containers with paper if we can't find enough hurricanes to go all around the house? haha.

      Delete
    2. Remember MacTac adhesive paper? We used to use that to "fancify" things.

      Delete
  5. nice...i like the creative texture you gave to hide the container...
    it looks snazzy now....

    1. And you do it very well, doll.

      I had to smile at your list. It is humorous to me that a lady named Sunshine would be shopping for a bumbershoot!

    2. I was just checking your spring list. It looks like a good one, especially if it ever gets warm and the grass turns green.
      :0)

      Delete
    3. So much of it needs to wait for true spring weather! But that's ok...I have enough stuff to keep me busy until then! I've never done a spring one before. It was the hardest by far. It's really still cold outside....and all the spring activities seem to be cleaning....which I need to do. lol... But soon we'll be putting out flowers and gardens...soon, as in 6 weeks or so. hahaha.

    3. That, if I remember correctly was the Ice Snow Cream, so I'd say they are just about on par with each other.
      I am having my presentation tomorrow for the 100th blood donation. A meal organised by the Blood Transfusion people. Golly after all that I need a meal!!

    4. Well, do take photos and make a post! What an accomplishment! I am glad, however, that you didn't donate all that at once! lol!!!

    5. Although...you did try once, if i remember correctly...in the shower? Out your leg? lol....oh dear.

    6. Yes tht shower accident was REALLY frightening!! It happened again about 3 months ago to a much lesser degree and I applied pressure and it stopped straight away and surprisingly I could not detect any source of where it came!! Yes I'll take some piccies and do a post. Yes I'm glad I didn't donate it all at once - enough for 13 people LOL . . . . HELP!!

      Delete
    7. Yes, it sounded awful! It happened again? Oh my goodness!

      Yes, don't give it all at once. I'm afraid you'd be looking rather pale. haha.

  12. You should win an award for, Class and Glass!
    It's such a perfect idea for such a obnoxious container. You definitely can leave it out!
    It reminds me of when the Kleenex box finally came out with those cute boxes.
    Way to go Betsy!

    1. Kleenex, well I guess it's actually Puffs, came out with a grey patterned one that I love. Finally! haha. In fact, I've refilled the cardboard one since I didn't find it again.

    3. I apologize in advance for speaking to you, Miss Baker, as I promised not to be a bother to you, but I must in this one instance! I assure you that I am not Mr. Fox! Good Lord! Betsy is a doll! I'm sure you would agree. Bloody hell, she sure has a lot of nicknames, but she fits every damn one of them. Yet Sunshine is my favourite for her. (smiling)

      Is Mr Fox the same as Silver Fox? - and could all the Anonymous people be the same person?
      Golly, Betsy, it's so much fun on your blog lol

    10. Yes Gloria - you look like you are in Mensa! Sure you can fathom it out!

      Delete
    11. People should get a notice when they are being discussed in the blogs! (smiling) Why does everyone get up in arms when I call Betsy a doll? Gloria, if you were nicer to me, I'd call you a doll, too! Does Mr. Fox call you doll? Is that what this is about? I'd wager a bet that he calls all the women "doll"!

    12. hmmm...but didn't someone ask you not to call me doll?

      Delete
    13. I never said is a problem you call Doll Betsy, of course not. The confus was because many times Silver call doll to Betsy.

    14. And never get up in arms Vince.

  18. Ingenious idea! I use a disinfectant spray made of thyme and oregano oil and clean with a reusable J-cloth. They scent acts as a deterrent to keep my cats off the counter too - most of the time!

    1. thyme and oregano oil? That might keep me off the counters, too! haha. :) Does it really kill bacteria and viruses?

    2. Yes, it does, and it's completely non-toxic. That's why I prefer it to harsh chemical cleaners. You can check out this link to read about it.

    3. No! Seriously? I have coconut oil...use it all the time for my skin, lips, nails...but never in my coffee. Interesting. I guess you think it's good. Do you use it in place of cream?

    4. Do it! Betsy!! You could name them all as bloggers!! I will have a few drinks then so you can call ne Rudoloph. Vince can be Dasher if he keeps calling you doll or sunshine and the others will fit in somewhere and you can have a father Christmas Hat and a bubble uttering, "Ho Ho Ho!"

  22. Betsy, you can use Picasa 3 (which is the most recent one) and download it for free. I use it. It does 99% of the things that Photoshop does. And I think your cats would look hysterical pulling you on a sled! On Shadow, On Marmalade, On Jack, On Cocoa!
