Since Daylight Savings Time begins tomorrow and we will "lose" an hour of sleep, I thought you might need a quick and easy breakfast recipe. About Southern Cooking's Quick Confetti Scrambled Egg Sandwich is delicious and easy to make. So enjoy the sandwich and if you drop a bit on your shirt as you run out the door (don't be late!), just follow the links to remove the stains.
Quick Confetti Scrambled Egg Sandwich
2 large eggs
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon diced tomato
1 slice cooked bacon, diced, or 1 tablespoon diced cooked ham
1 tablespoon butter
1 croissant or lightly toasted English muffin, split
Whisk the eggs with green onion until well blended then add the tomato and bacon or ham. Season with a dash of salt and pepper. Heat butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat. When butter is foamy, add the egg mixture and cook until slightly set around edges. Begin turning the edges inward with a spatula, turning over when the bottom is set. When the eggs are firm, place on half of the split croissant or English muffin and top with the other half. Serve with sliced tomato, if desired.
Makes 1 breakfast sandwich.

For more than two decades, all free clear laundry detergent has been the number one recommended laundry detergent by dermatologists, allergists and pediatricians. Now, all has completed the laundry collection by offering all free clear fabric softener and dryer sheets.
For many people, detergents and fabric softeners that contain dyes and perfumes can cause skin problems like contact dermatitis. And, some scents can trigger asthma, allergies and fits of sneezing! So, if you are looking for softness without the scent, take a look at About Laundry's product review of all free clear Fabric Softener and Dryer Sheets. (Photo: MML)

New to the growing list of single dose laundry detergent products is all mighty pacs OXI. These little pouches of super concentrated laundry detergent now have an added oxygen-based brightener to help your clothes look whiter and brighter.
I was fortunate enough to tour the Sun Products Research and Development complex a couple of years ago and it is quite impressive what goes into developing a new laundry product. First the scientists work in a lab and then they test, test, test. There was every brand and style of washer in the lab to recreate how we use products at home. And, my favorite, the observation lab where the scientist watch how we actually wash clothes "when no one is looking"!

Do you ever find yourself ready to do laundry and the detergent bottle is empty? That may never be a problem again with Cloudwash. According to an article in Popular Science, Berg, a London-based design firm, has created a washer that connects to the internet cloud and orders detergent and fabric softener from Amazon when supplies run low.
The washer has three presets of the washer settings and water temperatures you use most often. You can control the entire thing from your smart phone and get an alert when the cycles are complete. Or, if you can't get to the washer right away, you can control when the final rinse cycle begins so that clothes aren't left sitting in a washer getting more wrinkled. Watch a video and learn more about Cloudwash and the future of washing machines.
