Cleaning Porcelain stains with ZUD

Cleaning Porcelain stains with ZUD

I have hard water stains on my sink and they drive me crazy! I love the shine of a porcelain sink but what good does that do when my porcelain is covered in stains and doesn’t shine? No good at all! In fact it makes me crazy! So I asked around, well first I tried a ton of other products and $20.00 down the drain later,

I asked around.

My husband and I even talked out replacing the sink, glad I didn’t do that.  It turns out there is a product that is made just for problems like this. It is called Zud and so far I have only been able to find it at Ace Hardware. I’m sure you could purchase it online if you don’t have an Ace near you.  All I know is after many attempts failing I decided to try it, what did I have to lose right?

Check out my sink before I tried the Zud but after I tried many other products that shall remain nameless, for now

Do you see that eye sore all around the spigot? I can’t help but see it.

Notice that blackened line around the seal? Get a good look because it will be gone soon.


This bottle of Zud should come with a cape on it because it really is a lifesaver.

Look no ring around the spigot.

The ring is gone and my sink is shiney! This product really works. I didn’t get paid for this and I bought the product myself. These are all my opinions and I just wanted to share it with the world because I am so happy something finally worked! If you are reading this then I would suggest trying it out, it works on bathtubs too!

Crock Pot Sloppy Joe’s

Crock Pot Sloppy Joes for the whole family


What you’ll need:

3lbs ground beef or ground turkey
1 can Manwhich
½ cup brown sugar
1 small onion

First you brown your meat in a frying pan with a diced onion. Drain. Then dump it into the slow cooker and add the can of Manwhich.


Stir. Add ½ cup of brown sugar. Stir. Put it on warm or low depending on the model of your slow cooker. Let it cook for 3-4 hours and serve on hamburger buns of your choice.


I like to add sliced pickles and my daughter loves them with cheese. For my family of 3 this is a 2 night meal. So cook it one day and give yourself a break the next by just reheating it in the microwave.


Dairy Free Blueberry Pie Squares



These pie squares are so easy to make and even though they are dairy free they are full of flavor!

    What you’ll need:

  • 1 roll pizza dough (I use Pillsbury classic pizza crust)
  • 1 can blueberry pie filling
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 5 teaspoons soy milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • cinnamon to taste
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey

First Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Then spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray. Roll out pizza dough onto baking sheet, covering it completely.


Pour the pie filling on top and spread it to the sides.


Now it’s time to make the crumble to sprinkle on top before baking.


In a large bowl mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 4 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 teaspoon soy milk, 5 good shakes of cinnamon or to what suits your taste. Combine in bowl and sprinkle over pie filling.


Bake  for 10-15 minutes


Meanwhile, mix in a medium bowl, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons honey, 3 teaspoons soy milk, add cinnamon to taste, mix together. When pie is done drizzle over top. Let cool. Serve. Enjoy!


If you like you can try this same recipe but try with apple, cherry, peach, lemon, or any other flavor, the possibilities are endless!
