How to Get Rid of Bathtub Stains

So, I have tried recommendations online on how to clean bathtub stains and none of them seemed to work real well and if you have the plastic type tub, it seems to turn black easily. I recently used Soft Scrub with Bleach to clean our bathtub and it worked really well. I squeezed a bunch of it on the tub and let it rest for a couple of hours. To help spread it around, use a dry sponge. After waiting a couple of hours, I then scrubbed the tub and rinsed it out with water. After I scrubbed the tub, the tub was noticeably a lot whiter.  Sorry, I do not have before and after pictures, but Soft Scrub is not that expensive so I recommend trying it.

Emerald Bowling Lanes in Boise, ID

We recently went to Emerald Bowling Lanes in Boise, ID on date night. Emerald Bowling Lanes seemed well-kept and had friendly employees. We bowled two games and enjoyed cosmic bowling. Cosmic bowling is where the lanes are lit up with fluorescent lighting and the whole place is black lit. It's pretty cool to bowl when there's a light show going on. Emerald Bowling Lanes has a small grill with delicious brownie bites and onion rings. The bowling alley seemed great for parties, dates and family night. My only concerns were how loud the music was (but my husband reminded me it was because I was getting older), the big screens near the lane showing music videos was a little distracting and the bouncer at the door.

Torchy Tacos Review

Are you looking for damn good tacos? Torchy Tacos (Austin and other parts of Texas) offers some of the best tacos in the country. Their tacos would cause the greatest stone-hard foodie to have a huge smile. Not only are their tacos just that good, but their queso is pure happiness for your tummy's delight. My favorites are the green chile pork taco and the democrat. Their sodas are also local, different and worth a try. If you're near a Torchy's, I suggest you go and get something to eat.
