 Bring the Fun to Sick Family Members with a 3M Projector

Entertaining Bedridden Loved Ones?  Bring the Family Fun to Them with 3M Mobile Projectors

No Need for Sick Family Members to Miss the Memories!

My mom has been sick.  Really Sick.  Like she can’t get off the couch sick…and she is missing all kinds of family activities and fun this summer.  My dad has been taking care of her, which he doesn’t mind, but as a result he is not able to attend functions either.  My mom and my dad haven’t been able to visit my brother at his new lake home.  They weren’t able to attend our annual Fourth of July Family reunion.  Right now they can’t travel so they are missing out on fun vacation spots like Charleston, S.C., and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C.

Luckily, my brother and sister-in-law were home to visit this weekend, so with the aid of the 3M Mobile Projector, we were able to show them pictures from the family reunion,  scenes from my brother’s new cottage, and all the panoramic views from Charleston and the Biltmore (where we recently visited!).  It’s so easy to use too.  We also loved that it was super light weight and mobile.  We were able to move it around, much like a book, until we found the best place in the room to show our photos!

Waterpik Ultra Water flosser Review, Alternative Dental Floss Method

[ 17 ] March 20, 2012 |

WaterPik Ultra Water Flosser, LESS PAIN ..MORE GAIN

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser  –Are your Teeth or Gums Irritated?

My husband gets food caught under a crown in his tooth constantly.  I have several teeth that have a wide gap where food just LOVES to collect!  Sound familar? I know its  a little gross personal to discuss my dental hygiene and issues, but someone has to tell you solutions..right?  Why not the Chief Blonde who is willing to be an authority on everything!!

Our Dental Hygienist recommended the  Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser as way to solve our dental issues. Dental floss works for the “caught food” issue but sometimes floss doesn’t get all the food out, and it often leads to bleeding, pain and irritation.  Do you find that?  To quickly describe how the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser works…imagine a stepped-up version of that devise the dental hygienist uses when cleaning your teeth. You know the one that sprays water into your mouth to help you get out all the grit from a cleaning?  Wouldn’t it be great to have something like that in your own home to get the food out?

THE BENEFITS of the Waterpik Ultra WaterFlosser

I was fortunate to be able to take the recommendation of our Dental Hygienist, when I was offered the opportunity to review the Waterpik Ultra WaterFlosser (MSRP $59.99).  They claim that using the flosser in just one minute a day, prior to brushing leads to a cleaner, healthier mouth.  It is supposed to be easier and more effective that string floss.  6 unique tips for the Waterflosser are included (Classic jet tip, toothbrush tip, plaque seeker tip, Orthodontic tip–use with Braces, Pik Pocket–for medicaments,  and a tongue cleaner).  The tips are stored in a closed compartment at the top of the unit protecting them from dust and debris.  You have 10 pressure settings so you can achieve gentle but optimum cleaning.  The large covered water reservoir allows for 90 seconds of continual cleaning .  On the tip handle, there is a pause button so you can stop water flow.  Waterpik guarantees healthier gums in 14 days or you money back.

WaterPik Ultra Water Flosser

stillblonde3 smallChief Blonde Remarks: As many of you know, my blog policy is to only POST reviews for items I recommend.  That’s why I won’t do a review from a Hi-Res picture (can you believe that’s all some companies offer? or that some bloggers do that?) My and my husband’s experience with the Waterpik Ultra Waterflosser was top notch.  Highly recommend purchasing this unit for yourself, your teen with braces, or a loved one who wants a better way to floss.  My husband and I found that we only used one of the tips, the Classic jet tip, but we could see that we COULD use the others in different situations in our life.  The Waterflosser is really non-irritating, your mouth actually TINGLES after use.  I found it quite fun to use and it takes up very little counter space with an lovely clean design.  On my first few attempts at using it, I must admit, I did spray a little bit of water around the bathroom because…well…I didn’t read the directions on how to use the water pause button..teehee.  Once I got the hang of it, it was just a quick extra minute each day but it replaced flossing…and wasn’t painful.  My husband LOVES the unit, it gets to sit on his sink (read about our separate vanity issues) but he still lets me use it–Thank goodness.  I feel a good product solves a problem for you, I don’t think you will ever switch from your existing method of doing something unless the new device is better or cheaper or more efficient, etc.  Truly, I can tell you that the Waterpik Ultra Flosser beats even the BEST dental floss, hands down.  Of course, you can still keep your dental floss and use it occasionally if you want, BUT WHY WOULD YOU?

Would you try an Automatic Flosser?  Let us know what you think in the comments.

Easy Steps to Use the Isafe Waist Pack

stillblonde3 smallChief Blonde Remarks:   We have previously reviewed the Isafe Backpack.  Our readers went crazy for the product.  The comments were heartwarming.  People were really interested in this product for their child or college age student.  Many wondered why there wasn’t something like this that they or their older parent could use while walking, running , shopping or site-seeing.  The iSafe Waist Pack  really fits that bill!  The iSafe Waist Pack is the first and only waist pack with a hidden, built in, personal security system to protect the wearer and provide security in threatening situations.  And WOW, is that alarm loud!  If anyone is near you who can help in a situation where you are under attack, they simply cannot help hearing this alarm as an alert!  But it is really concealed, so it’s not like you are wearing a big “Ghostbusters” device.  I feel it really gives adults a lot more confidence to get out and get going because the personal alarm is very comforting.  Also, the design is highly functional with two large pockets and a stylish design.  I highly recommend Isafe products especially the new Isafe Waist pack.
