"Me Time" with Pine-Sol

There's something therapeutic about cleaning up, so when I get into the groove of cleaning, I can be like a madwoman sometimes. I turn all the furniture upside down and make sure every nook and cranny is spotless.

I wish I had all the time to clean and organize though. But it's either I have a clean home and the kids are locked up in a room, or I spend more time with the kids and let the house go a little. You know, an ultra messy desk there, toys scattered all over, cute little piles of clutter popping up in some corners. 

Between managing a home and taking care of a family, there is hardly time for "Me Time". In some twisted way, being able to sort out a pile of clutter without the kids bothering me is pretty much the equivalent of Me Time.

So when Mish Aventajado invite me to savor some "Me Time" with Pine-Sol, I was like, hell yeah, I need that!

She had a yoga session with yoga instructor Joanne Santos at SoFit Studio in Le Spa at Sofitel scheduled for us moms,

but since I had to pick up my visa at the embassy that morning, I had to skip this part.

Luckily, even if I missed yoga, I still got to bring home this yoga themed loot bag, heehee. Love the insulated Klean Kanteen, Aquazorb towel, personalized tote bag, note pad, and bottles of Pine-Sol of course.

Better yet, I still made it on time to have lunch with the moms.

And listen to Sofitel Manila's in-house nutritionist and aesthetic doctor on how we can eat and live healthy.

Nutritionist Agnes Tumaneng, RND taught us weight management and how to do calorie counting. Basically, she says we really need to watch what we eat and exercise in order to make sure we reach if not maintain our desired weight.

My my most favorite part of the program was the Detox Talk by Dr. Jade Cada, Aesthetic doctor at Vietura in Sofitel Manila.

I made sure to copy her tips, to share with you:

1. Eat pectin-rich organic apples. Pectin binds to toxins in the intestines to escort them out of the body.
2. Drink freshly-made vegetable juice daily.
3. Drink a large glass of purified water with the juice of one fresh lemon in the morning. Lemons have over 20 proven anti-cancer compounds.
4. Eat at least half a cup of fiber daily.
5. Eat more raw fruits and vegetables. They contain enzymes that aid digestion and improve nutrient absorption.
6. Eat at least three of the best detoxifying foods daily: broccoli, garlic, spinach, cabbage, sprouts, blueberries and ginger.
7. Drink plenty of pure water to help flush toxins from your body. Almost every process in your body depends on proper hydration to function smoothly.
8. Take a probiotic supplement with live cultures on an empty stomach daily (morning or evening works well). The beneficial bacteria kills harmful bacteria and yeasts and helps to heal the intestines.
9. Get at least 30 minutes of vigorous physical activity daily. Sweating is one of the best ways or removing harmful toxins including heavy metals.
10. Colonic cleansing
11. Taking in vitamins and minerals

Print this out so you remember ;)

Oh and remember to check out the new Pine-Sol scents as well!

Apart from the Original Pine, there's now Orange Energy, Lavender Clean, Lemon Fresh, and Sparkling Wave. All are formulated to disinfect and kill 99.9% of germs, deodorize, cut grease, and remove grime.

My friend Kath says she uses Pine-Sol for everything, from cleaning floors, bathrooms, counter tops, the stove to even the interiors of their cars. It's a great surface cleaner that you can use from floor to ceiling, for everything really, even your smelly garbage cans and pet stink too.

Researching on the uses of Pine-Sol, I've actually discovered some pretty valuable cleaning hacks from their site! Click HERE!

Thanks so much Mish and Patty, and Tisha de Veyra and Renelle de los Santos of Pine-Sol for a morning of Me Time well-spent. Happy Disinfecting, Deodorizing, De-greasing and De-griming when we got home too! ;)
