Book Review: Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau

Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau is a coming of age novel taking place in Baltimore, Maryland. During the 1970's, fourteen year old Mary Jane is caught in the middle of her family's conservative ideals and the progressive ideals of the Cone family where she is a summer nanny. Mary Jane is a sheltered teen who enjoys cooking with her mother, listening to Broadway Show Tunes, and singing in the church choir. On the first day of work, she is shocked at the mess in the Cone's home and introduces them to home cooked meals and keeping the house clean. In return, Mary Jane gets a front row seat to sex, drugs, and rock & roll. This novel was the selected for the book club I belong to.

Product Review: Clorox Multi-Purpose Paper Towel Wipes, Lemon Verbena

product review clorox multi purpose paper towel wipes lemon verbena
A couple of weeks ago, I received a voxbox with several samples in it from in exchange for my honest review. One of the samples I received is Clorox Multi-Purpose Paper Towel Wipes in a Lemon Verbena scent.

I used the Clorox Multi-Purpose Paper Towel Wipes to clean my master bathroom sink and counter. When I opened up the packages, I noticed the scent right away. It was a very pleasant smell that actually reminded me of how Orange Triaminic Cough Syrup smells. The wipes left my bathroom smelling amazing.

As far as how the product did when I cleaned the bathroom sink and counters, it removed all the dust, dirt, toothpaste residue, and other spills very easily. I didn't need to use any muscle power to get my sink and counters clean, which is very refreshing not to have to scrub a bunch. Everything shined like the top of the Chrysler Building to quote the movie Annie. Another nice thing about the Clorox Multi-Purpose Paper Towel Wipes is that they are thicker than other wipes that I've used and cleaned a lot more area than other similar products I've used. And, I love the fact that it kills bacteria.

Five out five stars is what I give Clorox Multi-Purpose Paper Towel Wipes in the Lemon Verbena scent. This is definitely a product I will purchase in the future to clean my house, and I recommend it to others.
