BIO-NIHILATOR Carpet & Hardwood Floor Cleaners: Get Rid of Stains!

Messes are unavoidable. Kids spill juice, animals pee on the carpet…parents really don’t get a break. Until now! BIO-NIHILATOR™ is here to clean up your stains for good.

Specially formulated by carpet cleaners in Kansas City, these carpet & hardwood cleaners will effectively get rid of your family’s and pets’ stains. (I would know…we have daily stains in this house)

Need it now? You can purchase BIO-NIHILATOR™ online or shop locally at an authorized Kansas City retailer.



Get Rid of Stains…Really

BIO-NIHILATOR offers a carpet cleaner and a hardwood floor cleaner to tackle both kinds of stains.  BIO-NIHILATOR™ uses bio based, environmentally safe ingredients to effectively clean fecal matter, urine and vomit stains, while offering a natural and pleasant fragrance. There are no strong smells or odors either.


Local, KC-Based Company

Support KC and clean your home in the process. BIO-NIHILATOR cleaning products are locally created and support people in OUR community. Find their products around KC at many different stores!

We love KC based companies; give them a big boost of local love.


Professional Strength Cleaners – Environmentally Safe

Clean with true Professional Strength products that are also ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE. It is important to keep our kids safe and this product does just that. While cleaning your stains!

Professional carpet cleaners developed BIO-NIHILATOR™ when an effective solution couldn’t be found. For years they used professional strength enzymes already on the market, but had mixed results. AFC Cleaning & Restoration (the carpet-cleaner-creators of BIO-NIHILATOR™) was often called to clean homes to clean tough pet stain and odor issues, so they had to find a solution.

The carpet cleaners began creating their own uniquely compounded products, which turned out to be more effective. Faster, with better results. And so, BIO-NIHILATOR™ was born!

BIO-NIHILATOR™ wants to share their cleaning powers with the world, so they bottled their special sauce for you to use in YOUR home. 🙂

Find both a carpet cleaner & hardwood floor cleaner to tackle any stain your pets and family throw your way. You can purchase BIO-NIHILATOR™ online  or find a local, authorized retailer in Kansas City.

Red Sparrow [Movie Review]

Ladies, grab your spouse or gal pals! This juicy spy thriller will have you sitting on the edge of your seat the entire movie. If you are in need of a flick that doesn’t revolve around Elsa and Ana or other cartoons, this is it.

red sparrow


The intro to the movie revolves around Jennifer Lawrence’s character, Dominika, having a traumatic ending to her ballet career. With no way to support herself or her mother, Dominika is recruited by her uncle to help a secret intelligent service with an assignment. When things go south, she is given the choice of a quiet death or to enroll in the “Sparrow School,” which trains young Russians to spy, using seduction and manipulation.

The movie is a cold war adventure mixed with hints of feminist revenge.  Dominika is assigned to find a Russian mole who is giving information back to an American CIA agent, Nate Nash.  Dominika’s uncle believes she is up for the task but the Americans soon learn who she is and believe they can turn her to the US side. Her and the American spy spend the movie out trying to wit one another. However, Dominika always has her own agenda. It was fun to keep track of the puzzle pieces left by double crossing agents, who continue to double cross one another. I am thankful my husband was there to answer my questions when I got confused. (the puzzle was hard to solve)

My heart was racing the entire movie, while I debated whose side Dominika was actually on – the Russian spies or the CIA operative. All the while trying to solve who is the mole? Some scenes of the movie, such as the violent and seductive acts are a little much to watch if you are not into that.  If gore and torture sessions are not your thing, I would not recommend committing to this movie or you may spend some time covering your eyes, like I did.

In the end, I did enjoy watching Dominika get revenge on every man who used and abused her. The suspenseful sequence of events will keep you guessing till the end; definitely worthy of a night out to the theatre!

Keeping Kids Active: Fun Workouts for the Family!

With the cold weather season, turning on Netflix and snuggling up on the couch can seem very appealing!  However, keeping kids active anytime of the year is important!  Brigette has put together a list of fun workouts and exercise-routines for the whole family to help keep everyone active all year around!

family workout

Keeping Kids Active: Fun Workouts for the Family! 

One thing we want as parents is to raise healthy, active kids! A way to ensure that our kids stay healthy is to find different ways to incorporate a kids exercises into our children’s’ lives! Now, let’s be honest here… What kid really wants to work out because they have to? Most of the time, our kids are “working out” because they want to, it’s a natural part of a kid’s life! So, if you are wanting your family to become more active, especially together, try these fun “workouts”!

#1 Nike App 

I love using this app for my workouts. Yes, it is a real workout, but it is so much fun. Plus, you are able to pick your level of intensity and style. You can focus on agility, speed and strength. This app is a great way to incorporate workouts at home.

 #2 Obstacle Course 

This is probably one of my kids’ favorite things to do. At our place, we have several sets of steps and a ramp. I start the kids off by racing up a ramp, then they head and down the stairs and end with different hops, jumps or skips. Really anything you come up I’m sure they will love!

 #3 Wild Card 

This workout requires not only physical power but brain power as well! Take a deck of cards and 4 exercises. We pick jumping jacks, squats, pushups and high knees. Each suit equals one exercise and the number on the card represents the number of reps. For example, if hearts equaled squats and you drew an 8, then everyone would do 8 squats. This game requires a lot of energy and focus so get ready to flex those brain muscles as well!

#4 Hiking 

When going for a walk or hike, most of the time you don’t realize how much work you are putting in. Different terrains require different levels of effort. Plus, being outside and enjoying nature is a great for everyone.

#5 Bike Riding 

Much like hiking, riding bikes don’t seem like much of a workout. But it is actually one of the best you can get! Using your legs to power a bike holding your own bodyweight uphill or downhill is a sure way to get your hearts pumping!

#6 Simon Says 

You can turn this classic game into a fun workout by incorporating high energy movements. Add mountain climbers, jumping jacks or high knees to add more intensity for your older kiddos.

#7 The Gym 

Nothing beats the good old gym! My kiddos love going because there is a T.V lol. But gyms have many different elements when it comes to working out. There are treadmills for running or walking, bikes for riding, medicine balls for tossing and weights for lifting. The gym is a great way to ensure that everyone finds something they enjoy doing!

When it comes to physical activities for kids, there is one important rule. That is HAVE FUN! No matter what game or where you are, having fun will ensure you and your kids a great time!

At our recent iFamilyKC Kids Club event at Kick It Foos, attendees got to take part in some of their favorite classic family-fun games that have been transformed into life-sized versions that allow individuals to literally step into the game and test out their athletic skills.

Life-Sized Human Foosball, Connect 4, Kurplunk, Yahtzee, Foot Pool, and Tick-Tac-Toe!

Mention iFamilyKC & get 25% OFF Your Private Rental!

The kids just LOVED playing game after game of Human Foosball, a fun competitive activity that lets the kids use their own athletic ability to compete with and against friends.

Human Foosball

  • No age restrictions; however, participants must have a minimum shoulder height of 40 inches
  • Each team consists of six players: 1 goalie, 3 defenders and 2 attackers
    • Players face the opposite team’s goal
    • Players must place and keep both hands on their pole
    • Players must only move side to side – no player is allowed to move forward or backward on the court
    • Contact between players is prohibited
  • Play will begin by dropping the ball at mid-court
  • Play continues until a penalty occurs, the ball is out of reach or out of bounds, or a goal is scored
  • A penalty will be called and a goal awarded to the non-offending team if any of the following occur…
    • A player touches the ball with their arms or hands while the ball is in play
    • The ball is played above the foosball poles at any time
    • Any player jumps, leans or climbs over the foosball poles
  • When the ball goes out of bounds, the ball will be returned to the place it left the court and rolled towards the non-offending team
  • The winning team will be the team that scores the most goals when time is called
    • Each goal is worth 1 point
    • When a goal is scored, the game is restarted by dropping the ball at mid-court towards the non-scoring team

Participants also enjoyed playing games of foot pool, where they used their feet in lieu of pool cues to play the game!

Foot Pool

  • Break – Starting the Game
    • the first player places the white ball wherever they like behind the starting line to break
    • a break is valid when the #1 ball is hit first
  • When the first ball is pocketed, the player who pocketed it chooses a group of balls
  • A player’s turn lasts as long as they keep legally pocketing balls, until they miss a shot, commit a foul, or win the game
  • The game is won when:
    • a player legally pockets all of the balls from their group and, in the next shot, pockets the 8 ball
  • The game is lost when:
    • the 8 ball is pocketed in the middle of the game
    • the 8 ball leaves the table
    • the white ball is pocketed or leaves the table in the same shot the 8 ball is pocketed
  • Fouls – when a player commits any of the following fouls, the opponent can place the white ball wherever they want, although they only get one shot
    • pocketing the white ball
    • hitting any ball off the table

More About Kick It Foos!

Is there an age requirement?

  • No. However, for safety reasons, there is a HEIGHT (40″ shoulder height) requirement to play Human Foosball. This allows the players to be able to reach the poles and still be able to see the field in order to play the game. This requirement is typically met by 8-9 years old. Smaller children are more than welcome to play the other life-size games if accompanied by an adult when the use is included in the purchased package.

Do people that are not playing have to pay?

  • Yes and No. For any event that does NOT include private facility rental (Amateur, Rookie, and Semi-Pro), all non-paying spectators will be asked to remain in the spectators waiting area at the front of the facility to minimize congestion and increase safety for all the participants. If it is an ALL youth party, then they will allow 1 adult for every 6 children in for free as chaperones.  However, if chaperones decide to play, they must pay.

  • Events that include a private facility rental include access to all games for the entire duration of the event. So, any guest of a private facility rental event who is old enough to walk must pay when they are a part of a group participating.

Do they have staff that watch the kids during parties?

  • Having fun is their #1 priority at Kick It Foos. With that being said, they must make sure they provide a safe environment for everyone to have fun in. We provide a game facilitator / referee during rentals. They are there to enforce rules. However, please keep in mind that they are NOT there to watch your children.

Is there anything to do besides Human Foosball?

  • ABSOULTEY! They currently have Foot Pool, life-size Connect 4, Kurplunk, Tick-Tac-Toe, and Yahtzee.

Can we bring outside food or drink?

  • Some of their rental packages allow you to bring outside food and non-alcoholic drinks. This is clearly labeled on the description of each package. If this is something you’d like to do, please be sure to select one of those packages when booking.

You can book your kids birthday party, neighborhood “block party”, scout or church group, or friend group at Kick It Foos and save 25% when you mention iFamilyKC (making a 2-hour party rental just $225!).

iFamilyKC Kids Club Re-Cap: The Language and Music House

Music is a universal language spoken all throughout the world and studies show that exposure to foreign languages during childhood makes it easier to learn a new language as an adult. What better way to give your child exposure to both than with the Language and Music House in Westport.

We recently had the chance to check it out with some of you at our recent iFamilyKC Kids Club event with them (and be sure to get on our FREE eNews list so you don’t miss out on future invitations), and have a recap for you today on the blog. Take a look…

iFamilyKC Kids Club Re-Cap: The Language and Music House


The Best Time to Introduce Kids to Language & Music is when they are still very young.

In case you missed it, we had a wonderful iFamilyKC Kids Club event at Language and Music House.  The kids got to try an instrument petting zoo, meet a real author and learn about multiple languages.  iFamilyKC readers get 50% OFF registration when you mention iFamilyKC.  Learning a language or instrument is a wonderful way to grow your child’s mind.

The best time to introduce kids to music and language is while they are still very young;. By the time they reach their teen years, many people have lost the ability to hear specific tones or accents. The mission of Language and Music House is to grow minds through music and language.  They offer kids classes in German, French, Spanish and Japanese, plus piano lessons for kids, voice, flute, violin, oboe, recorder and clarinet lessons too.
They also provide specialty help for Dyslexic minds as well, which are powerful but need to be taught reading and languages in a different way.  Language and Music House successfully tailors each class for the individual, whether they are a child or an adult.  Weekly kids classes are available as well as Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer Camps for expanded learning.  Call LeighAnn at 913-707-3134 to learn more about all that she and her team offer for students of all ages.
