Chore Completion Photos

Mom Hack

When you're busy, encourage your kids to take photos after completing their chores.

Not only does it give them a sense of responsibility, but it also helps them learn what a job well done looks like, all while freeing you up a bit!

Plus, reviewing the photos together can be a fun way to praise their effort and discuss improvements.

Do You Know Why Smells Linger on Activewear Fabrics?

It’s because activewear uses tightly woven synthetic fabrics to wick away sweat while you workout.

Unfortunately, traditional detergents use fabric softeners that can coat over sweat, dead skin, & bacteria trapping them inside these fabrics.

So once your body starts heating up… the smell inevitably returns.

ACTIVE solves this by using a scientifically formulated, all natural enzyme blend to break down these trapped contaminants once and for all!

Finally a solution to your smelly Activewear!

Featured Response😄 

“My husband says we go on adventures! It can be walking or driving but we head out of the house together and get lost until we've experienced something new or are ready to head home for a nap. Disconnecting and wandering lost together is a great way for all of us to spend quality time together that isn't in front of a TV where we have more conversation and build lasting memories.”

- Community Mom

That sounds absolutely wonderful—there's something so special about those spontaneous adventures! It's amazing how just getting out and exploring together can lead to such memorable family moments. - Danielle 😊
