Hottie’s Hot Pick Of The Week-Domestic Goddess Wax Tart

Hello hotties!   Sorry it’s been so long since my last Hot Pick but my muggle job has been keeping me quite busy these days.

Domestic Goddess Exclusive Wax Tart

Domestic Goddess Exclusive Wax Tart

Today I have for you my most favorite of home fragrances, The Rhinestone Housewife’s  exclusive Domestic Goddess  home fragrance wax tart.   Wax tarts are an amazing invention and so much safer than burning candles and I’ve been a happy convert for a couple of years now.   Domestic Goddess is described as:

Who says cleaning can’t be fun? The scent of a broken Pledge sprayer and the frozen raspberry margarita to take away the pain.

Each tart is approximately 2.5 ounces, and is in a plastic clamshell. Each tart can be broken into 6 tartlettes, each of which has a minimum throw of 12 hours.

Wondering what the heck these wax tart things are?  Check out Hottie’s blog post here.   Wanting to peruse the other exclusive Rhinestone Housewife home fragrances?  Then click here and you can also some other general catalog and limited edition scents here!
