My first review! Glade Sense and Spray



I recently became a BzzAgent and received a Glad Sense and Spray in the mail to use and review.

I have to admit, I was skeptical as to whether it would work as well as they said it would. Boy, was I wrong! Our bathroom is, well, a problem. With only one outlet, a plug-in freshener was not an option. And, most sprays just did not work, not to mention the whole "where is the air freshener now" problem. (since we tend to move it from room to room)

This little unit takes up very little room and is battery operated. It will automatically sense movement and after a little burst, it will lock itself out for 30 minutes to prevent overuse. But, you can override that anytime you need it by pressing the button.

I received the Clean Linen scent and just love it. It leaves a clean, crisp smell in the air. Plus, the fragrance lasts for quite some time. Ours has been up for several weeks, and it's still working perfectly and I no longer have to keep the bathroom door closed!

As you can tell, I highly recommend this product. I know the battery operation may be a problem for some, but if you use rechargeable batteries, that makes it more economical and greener for the planet.

My recipe:

Homemade Fruit Bars
1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (use only quick-cooking)
1/2 cup brown sugar (use 3/4 cup for a sweeter crust and topping)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter, plus
2 tablespoons melted butter (can use vegetable oil)
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups strawberry preserves or raspberry preserves (can use a little more, or use your favorite preserves)
1. Set oven to 375 degrees (oven rack to second-bottom position).
2. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
3. In a large bowl combine cake mix, oatmeal, cinnamon and brown sugar; mix with a spatula or a large wooden spoon.
4. In a small cup whisk egg with lemon juice and vanilla until combined; add to the crumb mixture along with 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons melted butter.
5. Using a large wooden spoon toss to combine then use your fingers to finish the mixing.
6. Mix until the mixture clumps together.
7. Sprinkle a litle more than half of the crumb mixture into the pan then spread out evenly pressing firmly to cover bottom.
8. Spoon the jam carefully over the crust in the pan and spread evenly.
9. Cover with remaining crumb mixture over top of the jam then gently pat the mixture down slightly.
10. Bake for 20 minutes (the top should be very light brown).
11. Cool completely, or semi-freeze before cutting into bars (this will make cutting the bars easier).
