Spring Cleaning: Outdoor Furniture Edition

As the weather warms out, the backyard beckons! The kids are ready to swim and even if you’re not quite ready to jump in, you’re happy to settle in to enjoy the breeze while you supervise. Except you’re not, because as you go to sit, you realize the furniture is filthy after a winter of neglect. What to do, what to do?

As it turns out, what to do depends entirely upon the type of furniture you have! But never fear, Clean and Scentsible has a clear and concise guide to spring cleaning every type of backyard furniture - from wicker to plastic, and everything in between. Check it out, get to work, and tomorrow you can sit back and enjoy that breeze while the kids splash and play!

Spring Cleaning: Pool Toy Edition

If your house is anything like mine, the warmer temperatures have your kids jumping into a pool most afternoons. The pool toys are coming out of storage and everyone is looking for their favorite pair of goggles! And if you’re like me, that pool water is still a touch cold for your taste, so you’re still on the pool deck supervising from a safe distance - which presents the perfect opportunity for a little pool toy maintenance! After a winter in storage (okay, after a winter piled in the lesser used side of the patio) the toys could all use a good scrub down. Here’s the 411 on getting them back in good shape for another summer of fun!

  • Give everything a good scrub down with a disinfecting solution. Mix two cups of bleach with a gallon of water OR create a half and half vinegar/water solution. The bleach will be more effective, but the vinegar is easier on the nose and skin. Wipe down the entirety of all pool toys. Use a soft brush on stubborn stains.

  • Inspect squirt toys. You can suck up some of your disinfecting solution for good measure, but know that these toys are best for single season use as it is nearly impossible to completely eliminate mildew growth inside.

  • Check that your inflatables hold air and that any plastic toys are still intact. Plastic may become brittle over time, especially when stored in the harsh Florida sun. Discard anything cracked or broken edges.

  • Inventory your goggles - look over the lenses, nose pieces, and straps and seals. Toss what is deteriorated beyond use and then order whatever you need to to avoid the inevitable tussles over the one pair that everyone likes best.

Christmas Greetings - Florida Style

It’s Christmas card season! Time to get out the stamps and pens and glitter and spread a little holiday cheer. Photo cards are all the rage and Florida’s balmy winters provide some unique opportunities for adding a little warmth to your greetings. Take your Christmas photos next to the palm trees on the beach or by (or even IN!) your family pool. Your family will smile at the extra bit of sunshine…if they don’t turn grich-y green with envy!

Here are some adorable swimming Christmas babies to inspire YOUR photo shoot…

Eerie Ambiance

Dry ice always creates an impressive display. Add an abundance of glowing candles for an extra spooky effect.

Floating Pumpkins

A little more effort than the plastic jack-o-lanterns, but with a lot more room for creativity! Float your carved pumpkins with battery-operated tea lights inside.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The spider isn’t so itsy bitsy anymore! You’ll need lots of balloons, including some oversized ones, some string, and a helium tank - but it’s a pretty impressive display if you can pull it off! Who’s game?

Ahoy, matey!

If you’re planning a Halloween party this season, don’t leave out your swimming pool! This month keep an eye on the blog for some simple and inexpensive ways to add some silly scares to your favorite swimming hole!

First up is the simplest of all! $1 plastic jack-o-lantern pails and with glow sticks or tea lights inside - set them afloat for a colorful backdrop.

Add a Banana

To close out our month of the s'more, we bring you an option that is not, strictly speaking, a s'more.  In fact, when I was a kid we called these "banana boats".  But all the s'more components are there and they are absolutely scrumptious, so no apologies!  Enjoy!

S'More S'Mores

This month's Newsletter is all about fire pits, and nothing goes with a fire pit better than s'mores!  The classic recipe stands the test of time, but it's always fun to tinker a bit.  This month we're bringing you inspiration for a new spin on the old favorite.

First up - the outer layer.  The graham cracker is simple to pack and sturdy enough to support the gooey insides, but a cookie!  Oh man, a cookie just adds a whole nother layer of yum.  You can pick up your favorite fudge stripe cookie for a simple swap or go a little Martha Stewart and bake your own.  Either way the results are amazing!

It's that time of year again!

For those of you still in the family years... 

Happy Back to School!

We wish you and your children a fantastic year of learning and growing!

Rain and Your Pool

July_1.jpg

Florida summers aren't just hot, they are also WET!  And as this year seems even rainier than usual, it seems the perfect opportunity to revisit the effects of rain on your swimming pool. 

Take a few minutes to check out this helpful guide to understanding the impact of the afternoon (morning and evening, too!) thunderstorms on your pool.
 

Featured Float #4

Here's another one you'll need some space for!  But there's room for the whole party AND this one is like a pool within the pool with it's basin for cooling off your toes.
