Amazon Household Essentials Sample Box

First Peek!

Saline Soothers Natural Saline Nose Wipes- Fragrance Free

Saline Soothers Natural Saline Nose Wipes- Fragrance Free: 20 count

Nice! I was wondering whether they would come out with an non-juvenile version of Boogie Wipes which is the best.thing.ever for blowing noses! Although not juvenile, I wish to be. I miss the scents that Boogie Wipes has of grape. Boogie Wipes does have a fragrance free wipe too.

Who knew that blowing your nose with a grape scented tissue brought more relief?


Vanity Fair Napkins

Vanity Fair Napkins : 36 count

Because everyone likes the nice grown up disposable napkins at dinner!

Because I usually have kiddie napkins bought on clearance lol.


Clorox Disinfecting Wipes To Go : Fresh Scent

In my wipes pouch (yes I have a wipes pouch) I have both a Clorox brand and a crunchy brand. I typically use my crunchy disinfecting wipes in moderation but use my Clorox wipes as the “big guns”.

That Clorox commercial with the judgy Clorox representative lady haunts me. 


Kleenex Moist Facial Cleansing Wipes

Kleenex Go Anywhere Facial Tissue : 1 travel pack

Oh I love how there is a hook loop to this. This way I can have my own personal facial tissues at my disposal away from my Squeaker’s reach. I do wish they were softer. That is what refills are for 😉

I am such a sucker for packing.

Kleenex Moist Facial Cleansing Wipes: 25 count

This is so fancy! And the went to the trouble to make sure that the clothes come out at an angle check out the side view! I am going to see whether I can use this to refill all those facial wipes I receive in subscription boxes. I tried to pry it open but it did not budge. I am going to use the whole thing first then I will try again to pry it open just in case I break the container by accident. I am not a fan of the powder scent though. Regardless, this is so much nicer to have this on display then a regular wipes package on the vanity.

I try to tidy up my vanity. With subscription pouches I stash below in cabinets. Surprised?


Viva Everyday Paper Towels

Viva Everyday Paper Towels : 1 roll

I had ordered a bunch of these via Amazon Save and Subscribe before. I went back to Bounty though. I really love the softness of Viva but I like the ripples and grooves of Bounty more.

Do you groove and prefer ripples as well?


Brite & Clean Ultimate Hard Water Stain Remover

Brite & Clean Ultimate Hard Water Stain Remover: 1 count

This is needed an appreciated. I need to block out a time where I can use this for all the fixtures that need Hard Water Stain Remover so I can kill many birds with one stone.

Yes. I need to set up an Hard Water Stain Remover party of one. Go big or go home. 


Germ-X Hand Sanitizer

Germ-X Hand Sanitizer: 2.5 oz

Before I was obsessed with Bath and Body Works sanitizers, there was this good standby! I always wanted to buy the huge economical size of this just because. I digress with my huge liter tendencies, this mini sanitizer is going to one of the “Back To School” bus drivers goody bags.


PURELL Hand Soap HEALTHY SOAP Fresh Botanicals

PURELL Hand Soap HEALTHY SOAP Fresh Botanicals : 12 oz

Another good standby before my Bath and Body Works sanitizer obsession. This will be going to Pipsqueak’s teacher in a goody bag when she goes back to school.

Is there such a thing as “non-healthy soap”!?! These marketing majors in marketing these days!


Nature’s Gate Coconut Body Wash

Nature’s Gate Coconut Body Wash : 0.3 oz

Just your standard crunchy body wash with coconuts. Nothing earth shattering.


Knock Out! Eraser Pad

Knock Out! Eraser Pad : 1 count

Less crumbly than the Mr. Eraser knock offs but I will stick with Mr. Eraser.


Persil ProClean Laundry Detergent

Persil ProClean Laundry Detergent: 1.8 oz

I only know of this brand via commercials and that maybe rich people that do not do their laundry request this brand since the commercials seem to target rich people. I am going to try this with a load of my clothes since I can confirm that at least I am the only one in this family that does not have any sensitivities. I know this sounds easier to most of you to do something like this but I have too much going on the washer serves as the family hamper so it will take some time for me to manually separate my stuff from the masses.

Is your washer serve as the hamper too?


Biokleen Laundry Liquid : Citrus essence

Biokleen Laundry Liquid : Citrus essence, 1.3 oz

Need to try this separately from the family. I am going to digress for a bit and wonder really out loud why do HE washers take so much longer than traditional washers? I miss my old washer it did the job in like 30 minutes. I only have one setting in my HE washer that is 30 minutes. One. There are many. Ugh. Anyways, the sample is for two loads but I will just use it on one big load.

Did you have to begrudgingly upgrade to an HE washer?


The Laundress Signature Detergent: Classic

The Laundress Signature Detergent: Classic, 0.5 oz

I have this via subscription boxes and I bought it once before sub boxes entered my life. Once in awhile I will hand wash all my undies. I love the scent. I have not used this detergent in my washer. Maybe I will be ambitious and live on the wild side.
Scotch-Brite Greener Clean Absorbent Sponge: 1 count

Hmmmm… does not have the scrubbie goodness that a Grove Co walnut sponge has but I will use it begrudgingly.


Glad ForceFlex Drawstring Tall Kitchen Trash Bags

Glad ForceFlex Drawstring Tall Kitchen Trash Bags: 1 count

When I saw this I got really ridiculously happy. We subscribe and save to these. I wanted to put this sample in a pouch for emergencies. Then I thought that was weird. I could have put any big trash bag in a small baggie. Then I thought I was weird. Then I realized that I am weird. I think I am going to stick this bag with washi tape behind the kitchen door so in case we run out of trash bags this can be used. We are huge fans of the febreeze scent just because it seems that febreeze dominates the scented gallon trash bag market and we like our gallon size trash bags scented other than non-scented/garbage scented.

That’s my story and I am sticking to it!


Amazon Household Essentials Sample Box


Again, this is a ridic fabulous free box since you get your $14.99 back choosing one of the many eligible practical items. If you love wipes you will LOVE this box. Well if you love a great deal you will love this box too! This would also be a great housewarming box gift as well but only one box per Prime member addy *sighs*

    I use the Clorox wipes as the big guns too. Loved the box and the travel sizes!

    If I had a household holster belt I would I Clorox on my left side and Blue Dawn on my right side. I am right-handed and Dawn obviously smells better than Clorox 😉
    These Amazon boxes that are basically free with store credit to items that I will or wish to purchase have me hooked! I think I abandoned my Sephora Sun Kit I got the Amazon Sunscreen Box. Free box samples with credit to splurge on a fancy sunscreen yes please!!!
