How Effective Are Wax Vacuum Ear Cleaners? 28Jun13

Physicians have warned people for years that it’s not safe to clean your ears to any depth using a cotton swab – or worse, a hairpin. They can push wax further into your ears, where it can create even more problems. They can even puncture the ear drum, leading to pain and possibly requiring surgery.

The Wax Vacuum Ear Cleaner gives you a safer way to clean your ears, without the risks associated with cotton swabs. It has a safety guard on it so that you won’t use it too deeply. All you’ll need to do is to attach a color-coded, soft silicone tip and switch it on after inserting it into your ear.

The controlled suction of the ear wax vacuum pulls gently and removes the water, dirt particles and wax from your ear. It is collected into a special chamber on the vacuum. When you have finished cleaning, all you have to do is unscrew the container and then empty it. You won’t believe how much wax and other debris can accumulate in your ear until you try a vacuum.

Cotton swabs are used for many purposes, and you probably find that they may end up everywhere in the house except where you need them to clean your ears. An ear vacuum has a lighted tip, so that you can easily see inside your ear before you use the vacuum. It’s s step in the right direction as far as ear hygiene, for adults and children alike. Younger children should have their ears done by an adult, though.

Ear wax vacuums are powerful, but they are still safe to use. The light is especially handy, so you can check out the ear before cleaning. The battery-operated ear wax vacuum also lets you clean your ears without leaving cords on the sink. It’s lightweight, portable and easy to use.

The Corn Zipper 23May13

Well, with Memorial Day around the corner, that just means one thing: summer is also right around the corner. Along with taking vacation, spending time outside, going to the pool, having barbeques, and making any excuse possible to find a way to get to the beach for a day or a few days, I also love the food in the summertime.

Every single week all year long I buy fresh fruits and vegetables to either eat raw or cook. You can always count on me to have fresh fruit and vegetables in my apartment at all times. corn zipperIn the summertime it gets so hot the last thing I generally want to eat is something heavy, greasy, and hot which is why fruits and veggies are my favorite, as I like my food in the summertime to be light and fresh. That being said, one of my favorite foods to eat in the summer is fresh corn. There is of course, a caveat to my love for corn and that is I will only eat it off the cob and cold. I know many of you think I am crazy…that grilled corn on the cob with butter and salt is the best food ever. But I am pretty certain there are others like me out there. So for those of you like me who hate to cut the corn off the cob, I found the perfect product for us: the Corn Zipper.

The Corn Zipper strips the corn kernels off the cob, and while the corn strips, the kernels drop into an attached half cup container so you will not lose any corn. Stripping corn off the cob using the Corn Zipper is not only a great idea to get those of us who do not eat corn on the cob to actually eat it, but corn is delicious in salad, pasta salad, tacos, and soups! So, the Corn Zipper will definitely be a product to help you in the kitchen all year around.

One Touch Weather Radio 20May13

The other day I was perusing the internet and I came across a product that really caught my attention. This is a product that has some serious potential, because it answers a reoccurring question I ask myself every morning – what is the weather? Now, with the One Touch Weather Radio that daily question can easily be answered. Other than traffic, I can’t think of any other information that could possibly be more important first thing in the morning than knowing what the weather will be for the day.

one touch weather radio

What I love about the One Touch Weather Radio is that it provides the weather instantly from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). By simply using the one-touch on/off switch, and the fine tune control to get the best signal, the One Touch Weather Radio provides the weather for the day quickly so you can get your day started on the right foot.

I am the type of person who loves knowing answers ahead of time; in this case I love knowing what the weather is before even getting out of bed. That way I have extra time to plan my outfit for the day based on the weather while I shower, etc. The One Touch Weather Radio solves this problem for me, and answers my most important question of the day.

Tools and Gadgets to Give an Amateur Chef 16May13

They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That’s not only true; it’s the understatement of the century. Being a good cook isn’t just a great way to nab a romantic partner, but even just to enhance the everyday lives of your friends and family.

There are few things more satisfying than having a group of friends over and cooking them a delicious and nutritious meal. There is an elemental feeling of community, comfort and safety that sharing a home-cooked meal with your friends and family brings about. This is something that the cook feels, the cook’s company feels, and that everyone takes with them throughout their day.

If you are lucky enough to know someone who is a great amateur chef, then you should do your best to support their passion. Not only will they feel great that you thought of them, but hopefully you will get to share in the bounty of what their new kitchen gadget allows them to make!

Before you think about getting any kitchen tools and gadgets for an amateur chef, however, you will want to remember one thing. If they really love cooking then they probably have all of the essentials. That means if you are going to buy something for them, you should make sure they don’t already have it. Next time you are over for a pot luck at their house, feel free to do a little snooping in the kitchen just to make sure you cover all your bases.

If you aren’t able to scope out their kitchen supplies beforehand, don’t fret. Here are a two kitchen tools and gadgets that they aren’t likely to have, but are certainly likely to love!

Digital Thermometer

While this seems like an obvious item that everyone should have in their kitchens, you would be amazed at how many amateur chefs don’t have something as simple as a digital thermometer. This, however, is one of those items that you might want to make sure they don’t have already.

Even if your friend is a vegetarian and doesn’t need a digital thermometer to make sure the turkey is done on Thanksgiving, it is still an incredibly handy device to have around. It can just as easily be used to stick in the middle of a casserole to see if the center is cooked, or to make sure the center of your frozen pizza is as done as the outside is.

This digital thermometer features a face that is about one inch across. You can set it to read in Fahrenheit or in Celsius.

Deluxe Ultimate Knife Sharpener

One thing that many people don’t realize is that a dull knife can be much more dangerous than a sharp knife. Think of it this way; if you are cutting a bell pepper into strips for your stir fry you are going to have a much easier time chopping it up with a sharp knife. Using a dull knife leads to the possibility of slipping right off that pepper and cutting a finger off.

New amateur chefs might not realize that even the finest kitchen knives need regular sharpening to keep them operating at top performance. The deluxe ultimate knife sharpener is an essential tool for every chef to optimize their cutting abilities.

This sharpener is made with incredibly strong steel carbide that has been carefully set at the perfect angle. The deluxe knife sharpener also has a non-slip grip so you can sharpener your knives with ease. It even has a 10-second sharpener so you aren’t wasting any time in the kitchen!

It’s time to repay the amateur chef you know and love for all of those amazing meals they have treated you to. These are just of a few of the amazing kitchen tools and gadgets out there to give an amateur chef!

Lady Bug Nail Polish Holder 25Apr13

In an effort to save a little bit of money in my everyday life, there are some sacrifices that I had to make. Besides giving up my gym membership, the most difficult thing I gave up was my twice a month manicure and month pedicure appointments. Now I do my own.

So, what is the big deal? Now I paint my own nails. Unfortunately, I do not do nearly as good a job as the professionals in the salons, and my manicures last maybe a week; not nearly as long as if I got them professionally done. Also, it is not as easy as it looks to dip your nail polish brush back in the  Lady Bug Nail Polish Holder jar without smudging the already-painted nails from the other hand. In comes my search and successful find of this helpful product: the Lady Bug Nail Polish Holder. This spill proof nail polish holder is just what I need to help make painting my own nails easier. The Lady Bug Spill Proof Nail Polish Holder holds the nail polish upright, and allows the bottle to rock back and forth without spilling – awesome solution!

I know it can be very difficult to save money and sacrifice things you love in order to save what seems like a small amount of money that you can “make up” later. Making these sacrifices can seem cumbersome especially if it causes us to do extra work; but if we find helpful products to help us accomplish our goals it will definitely be worth the savings in the end.

BBQ Season Is Upon Us 23Apr13

It is that time of year when the weather is simply perfect. These perfect temperatures will not last too long, so I know I will need to make sure to make the most of the time that I have. This means lots of walks outside, walking instead of driving at every possible moment, and my all time favorite…eating outside!

It is so easy to sit, eat, and relax outside when the temperature is 70-something degrees, not humid, and not windy. There are plenty of restaurants all over the place with outdoor seating that will happily take my money and let me sit for as long as I would like.

But, would I rather sit at a restaurant, or perhaps uncover my friends’ outdoor patio furniture, dust off the grill that was hibernating all winter, apronand spend the whole day outside grilling, eating, drinking, and playing outside with friends? Yes, I would definitely prefer a nice and relaxing day outside enjoying the gorgeous weather with a big group of friends. And it’s always funny seeing your guy friends in front of the grill cooking delicious food, and wearing goofy aprons like this grill sergeant apron.

So, for those you lucky enough to have such beautiful weather right now, I would suggest taking full advantage of this situation before the summer heat rolls in and it gets to be too hot and humid to enjoy a long length of time outside without needing to hop in a pool to cool down. Gather your group of friends, get the kids together, and enjoy this quality time outside!

Taylor Gifts Can Help You Go “Green” in the Kitchen 22Apr13

Going green isn’t about thinking you are better than everyone else or latching on to some temporary gimmick or fad. Going green is about cultivating a lifestyle where you don’t take any more than you need. It is about recycling and cutting down on consumerism and living a healthy and happy lifestyle.

In this day and age people are going green in more ways than ever before. They cut down on unnecessary spending, they recycle everything they can, they ride bikes to work instead of taking a car, and they look to weatherproof their house to save money and energy.

When most of us need something for around the house we run out to the local big box store and just buy the cheapest version we can find. We quickly deem it “good enough” and go back on our merry way.

But the plain fact is that affordable also means cheap. And a cheap price all too often means low quality. Sometimes you can actually save money in the long run by spending a little bit more in the short run and actually having something that won’t break.

Investing in a well-built product helps to reduce waste. That is exactly what the designers at OrGreenic Cookware have found. They make cooking products that will stand up to the test of time. Here are a few great reasons for going green in your kitchen by switching to OrGreenic Cookware.

OrGreenic Cookware Sets are built to Last a Lifetime

It feels like such a waste to work so hard for your money, and then waste it on a product that ends up breaking right away. Sure, that cheap mop might look like it will work perfectly fine, but you’re going to wish you ended up spending a little bit of extra cash when it breaks in a few short weeks. Not only are you wasting your money, but throwing out cheap products is also bad for the environment.

The designers at OrGreenic Cookware know this and that’s why their sets aren’t shoddily made items that will only last a couple of years. OrGreenic Cookware Sets are made to last a lifetime. When you spend your hard earned money on an OrGreenic Cookware Set you aren’t just throwing caution to the wind. You can have confidence that you’ll never have to buy another set of cookware ever again.

That is because the Orgreenic company guarantees each and every one of the products they make to last the rest of your life. If your pot breaks in fifty years and you are still alive to cook with it, just send it back to the company and they will repair it for you. Buying well-built and guaranteed products like this saves you money, time, and is a great benefit for the environment.

You Don’t Need Any More Cookware when you have the OrGreenic Set

Whether you are making a giant casserole for your whole family, a big beef stew to warm up a winter night, or even just a quick stir fry for a group of friends, you don’t need anything else but an OrGreenic Cookware set. You will be hard-pressed to find any type of cookware you might need that doesn’t come with the OrGreenic cookware set.

Ten different pieces come in the OrGreenic Cookware set. You’ll find two frying pans in the set, one that is eight inches for smaller jobs, and a larger ten inch fry pan for bigger stir frys and the like. The larger one also comes with a handy lid and an aluminum steamer. This set also has pots and lids for one and a half quarts, two and a half quarts, and a much larger one. Lids also come to fit each of these sauce pots.

Lose Weight the OrGreenic Way

Cooking at home is in its very essence a healthy way to lose weight. For one, you aren’t tempted by all of the rich and unhealthy things that you might find on a restaurant menu. It is a whole lot easier to stick to your diet when you are cooking your own meals.

But the OrGreenic Cookware set makes it even easier to drop some pounds. That’s because it has an amazing non stick coating of ceramic. Now you can backe, braise, broil, fry, steam, or sauté all of your food without having to use fattening things like grease, oil, or butter to cook in.

The OrGreenic Cookware Set is obviously a great thing for the environment, but it’s also a smart and healthy choice for your lifestyle.

If You Just Re-Vamped Your Living Room Furniture, Protect It From The Dog With These Tips 05Apr13

Stress pops up in our lives in unexpected ways. When you head out the door in the morning you never know what you are going to run into out there in the world. Sometimes you will find beautiful instances of novelty that bring great joy into your existence, while other times you run into bad coincidences that simply end up ruining your day.

You can’t always control what you run into when you are out and about on planet Earth, but you can control the environment that you come home to. One thing that a lot of people don’t realize is that the shape their home or apartment is in can have a humongous effect on how they feel.

Some people think that if they live alone it is no problem living like a slob. They might as well leave stuff laying all over the place because no one else has to deal with it. But what they may not realize is that a messy house can subconsciously make them feel stressed out and uncomfortable.

On the other hand, when you come home to a nice and clean home you can instantly feel a little bit less stressed out from your day. Is there anything better than coming home from a rough day at work, jumping in a hot, clean shower, and then climbing into a bed of freshly cleaned sheets?

You can also make your house feel incredibly clean and welcoming by re-vamping your living room furniture. Old hand me down furniture is great for when you are getting started on your own, but after a while you will probably want to upgrade. You can pick out vintage furniture to fit your classic style or sleek and modern furniture to spice up your loft apartment. The furniture that you pick out will be a reflection of the environment you want to live in. The choice is up to you.

Of course another way to make your house more of a home is to have an adoring dog waiting for you when you come home from work. Having a pet is a tough but rewarding job. They take a whole lot of care and affection, but they also return that care and affection tenfold back upon you.

While a clean home and a happy pet can both make your house a more pleasant environment, all too often it seems that they do not go together very well. Dogs shed, and when you are gone at work all day it is pretty hard to keep your pets off of your brand new furniture. Beyond that, what is the fun of having a friendly dog if you can’t bring them up on the couch with you to chill out at night and put on a great movie?

The secret to having a clean house while still making it a happy home for your joyous pup is to cover your furniture with furniture covers. These furniture covers are perfect ways to keep your furniture free from pet dander, hair, and even dirt that they dragged in from outside.

Chocolate Quilted Suede Pet Covers

If you have a den filled with old books and antique furniture, you will probably want a furniture color with a dark tone that will match the thoughtful solace of your book-filled study. Chocolate quilted suede pet covers will be perfect so you can kick back and work on your novel while your dog snoozes at your feet.

chocolate quilted suede pet covers

You can find these pet covers in three different styles. That way you can keep all sorts of types of furniture clean. This is especially convenient if you have a whole set of furniture. With all these varieties in the same color you can make sure that your room still matches.

One of the best parts about this pet cover is that it is all made out of one solid piece of material. The reason for this is very simple. When dogs go to bed they don’t just lay right down. We all know they wander around in circles for a while before they finally rest for a nap. When your pet cover is made out of one piece of fabric you can be confident that it won’t mess up and come off the furniture!

Linen Pet Covers

While the chocolate suede pet covers are excellent for darker rooms, if you want to lighten up a room then the linen pet covers are a much better decision. Just like the chocolate suede style, the linen pet covers can be used on your loveseats, chairs, and even your sofas.

linen pet covers

Both the linen and the suede styles are surprisingly easy to clean. The first step is to get out your vacuum cleaner and rid the cover of excess pet hair. Then all you have to do is wash it in the washing machine!

Don’t let your home fall into disarray because it is covered in pet hair. Keep your pet’s shedding in check with these handy furniture covers!
