Super Saturday!! (Corned Beef & Shower Cleaning)

So for some reason I woke up this Saturday, ready to go! No idea why. (maybe it was the sleep deprivation!)

So I decided to make my corned beef before it went bad. (thank god they're pickled or whatever... it was in my fridge FOREVER!)

This is the recipe that I used...

Of course as always.. I changed it! I didn't use the honey, with a 2 year old and a 1 year old I'm very wary about feeding them honey, even after its been cooked. I don't know what caraway seeds are so I didn't even put them in. Not a fan of cloves, so I didn't use them.. I guess it's easier to just give my recipe. :)

What I used :
2.68lb Corned Beef
1 Med Onion (Chunked)
1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar + another big splash!
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of Tastefully Simple Bold & Bossy Honey Mustard
Ground Pepper corns
1/2 small head of cabbage (wedged)
And 12 ounces of Budweiser

I followed the directions like anyone with ADHD.. Basically did what I wanted Lol.. I turned the crock pot on.. put the vinegar, sugar, and mustard together and stirred. Its amazing how the vinegar just completely broke down the sugar.. I stirred until everything was dissolved and then transferred it into a measuring cup and then followed the directions as instructed :)

And this is how it turned out. Didn't like the cabbage that much.. but the corned beef was great! Ate half of it by myself!!
I'll definitely be making it again! Even though my hubby won't eat it!

So while the corned beef was a cooking.. I figured I'd tackle the shower...

Now I have tried every cleaner under the sun for my shower.. This is what my shower looks like... CONSTANTLY..
Bleach doesn't work, comet, ajax, purple power, kaboom.. NOTHING.

So this is what i used... Here's the original link

I bought my bottle from family dollar and it was only 14 oz.. So I used 7 oz of vinegar
And clearly my tub was BAD! So i used 7 ounces of Dawn Power Clean...
I didn't read until after that you're supposed to heat the dawn. So I didn't do that. I just shook until it blended together...

Before :

Now mind you! I was tired at this point.. so I just took a magic eraser and WIPED everything off! This was the easiest clean ever! Worked better then any cleaner I've ever used.. Looks like I have a new Saturday cleaning routine!
