My Thoughts

The earphones looked really cool in its wood housing and I never really thought it is possible other than plastic or metal. It is compatible with my iPhone and according to the product description, it also works with a lot of other devices. The tips were made of silicone and they felt very comfortable in my ears. The sound is excellent and outside noises can’t be heard even with a low volume.

A mattress is a significant purchase, particularly if you’ve paid a considerable amount of money. So how do you protect your investment? Read on for three key tips that will help prolong the life of your mattress.

1. Protect Your Mattress

Putting a mattress protector on your bed is probably the most simple and effective way to safeguard your beloved bed. There are a number of protectors that are now available so here is a look at what they are and how to pick the right one for you.

mattress 2

Mattress protectors come in a variety of fabrics and weights (thickness). The most common type is made of quilted cotton or cotton blend (e.g. cotton/polyester). You can also buy waterproof covers that are 100% plastic or have a fabric top with a plastic backing.

The next thing to consider is how they fit onto your mattress. Some are made like a fitted sheet while others are more basic with four pieces of elastic attached to the protector that simply slide over each corner of your mattress. You can even buy protectors that fully encase your mattress.

You could also consider buying a topper rather than a mattress protector. Toppers are really a dual purpose item;in addition to protecting your mattress, they’re also designed to enhance its comfort. There are so many different types of toppers. Some are firm and these are usually made of memory foam or latex. Others are really soft and designed to soften up hard mattresses. Typically, these are made from bamboo, cotton, feathers, down ,polyester fill, wool or a combination of materials.

2. Support Your Mattress

While protectors and toppers look after the top of a mattress, it’s also really important to think about what is going on underneath it as well. Mattresses need a quality bed frame or box to support their weight. Whether you choose a slat or ensemble base, it needs to provide even support across the whole mattress. If the base sags, this could cause uneven wear and tear to the mattress and reduce its level of comfort and support for you.

To make sure you choose the right mattress and base, it’s best to find a retailer that specializes in beds, such as Sleepy’s, rather than a general department store. They’ll have a far better range of products and will be able to match you to the perfect bed.

3. Clean Your Mattress

By vacuuming your mattress regularly, you’ll remove a myriad of microscopic nasties.This will not only take care of allergens like dust, but will help to extend the life of your mattress by keeping it cleaner for longer.

Mattresses are a big ticket item when it comes to household expenses. Therefore, you want to get as many years out of your mattress as possible, so make sure you follow the tips above to achieve just that.

Product Review: IPhone 6 Screen Protector

Scratches, dirt and dust can be easily avoided with a good screen protector. Today’s review is about the iPhone 6 Screen Protector by ESimple.

Product Description

One of the main focuses of Esimple is to be perfect HD fitting that makes the screen more realistic. 5 layer protective film provides a combination of strength, scratch resistance, and visual clarity. The material is impact resistant. Accidentally cracked iPhone screens are a common, disappointing problem for users. Esimple reduces the risk of this happening.

My Thoughts

My twin granddaughters love to play their favorite apps using my iPhone and very often, they leave the screen of my phone, sticky and full of fingerprints. Installing the ESimple screen protector was a great idea. Watch the video below.

It’s very easy to apply and it protects the screen really well. There were a few bubbles, but they were very easy to remove; I just wiped them off using the cloth that came with the screen protector. I like that the screen remained sensitive to the touch. I can still navigate through it without difficulties. One thing I didn’t like about using screen protectors is it makes your screen less sensitive to the touch. ESimple’s is not one of those.

Overall, I like this screen protector. It keeps my phone clean and safe from scratches. If you are looking for a good screen protector to protect your precious phone, this is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Phone 6 screen protector through Amazon. To know more about the screen protector, you may also visit their Facebook page.

My Thoughts

The blood pressure monitor is just the right size and it is lightweight. It’s actually about the same size and weight of the talking Ozeri Digital blood Pressure Monitor that I reviewed last year. This is simple to use as well and just as accurate.

I like that it gives you heart health and hypertension reading, so you’ll easily know if you’re still on the normal side or if you need to see a health care professional.

Overall, I find this blood pressure monitor easy to use and it is accurate. If you are looking for a gadget to monitor your blood pressure, heart health and hypertension, this is a good tool to have. I recommend this.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Ozeri BP01K CardioTech Pro Series Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Heart Health and Hypertension Indicator through the Moderna website and on Amazon.

Product Review: CELFIE Stick

If you’re worried about dropping your phone while taking selfies, having a good pole will keep it safely placed while you are taking photos.

Product Description

The Celfie Stick is what you need to up your selfie game to the next level.

Don’t be fooled by other selfie sticks on the market, this one has high end features the others don’t.
? Super long extendable length for far-away selfie, yet condenses in size in the handle.
? Very strong mount you can trust with your phone!
? Most importantly, the shutter button is IN the handle! No more cheap-o separate remotes.
? The Celfie Stick easily pairs by bluetooth to your phone, and comes with a cable for recharging!

My Thoughts

The Celfie Stick is unbelievably light and easy to hold. I’ve seen a lot of selfie sticks, but this one is different because aside from being super long when extended, the shutter button is placed right in the handle. Yup, no more separate remotes. Taking photos is a cinch using the button in the handle via bluetooth. My phone fits perfectly and I don’t have to worry about it dropping because it is secured safely in the mount.

Overall, this is a nice selfie stick. It’s easy to use and it also comes a rechargeable battery with a charging cable. If you are looking for a reliable selfie stick to hold your smartphone, I would recommend this product.

One of the easiest home improvement projects any homeowner can undertake is getting the carpet and rugs thoroughly cleaned by a professional service. This project also falls into one of the most common do-it-yourself errors, because renting a machine, purchasing solution, and completing the work has been often something many opt to do on their own. Just like any profession, nobody gets a job done like the pros. The right experience and the right equipment make all the difference in the world.

Experience

Just as a guitar player can pick up an instrument and create beautiful music, carpet and rug cleaners know their industry. What might look like a simple stain to an owner, could be something else entirely. Plus, having dealt with a number of similar situations over the course of years, professionals have the ability to get the job done quickly the first time. Plus some rugs can be very expensive, which means the risk of an amateur doing damage is not worth the adventure.

Equipment

The deal breaker for most homeowners is equipment and cleaning chemicals. After the machine rental and cleaner purchase, the work still needs to be done. Depending on the quality and the brand of the cleaners used, the price can get out of control quickly. In addition, the rental is also on a time limit or else the fees start to add up quickly. Professionals stock the needed chemicals and own their own equipment, which means the right tools are brought to the job site every time.

Effort

Carpet and rugs are often situated under furniture, which means a lot of heavy moving. Calling in the experts saves the owners back. If stairs or multi-level dwellings are on the cleaning list, moving the equipment around can be cumbersome as well. The last thing anyone wants is an unsafe job, and the pros have the staff to get the furniture moved and the rugs rolled up and relocated easily.

Finding the best carpet or rug cleaning company Brooklyn has to offer means a quick search and check of online review sites. Green Choice Carpet Cleaning has the experience, equipment, and manpower to complete the big jobs quickly and efficiently. In the end, these two aspects are what really drive any home improvement or spring cleaning project. Professional cleaning companies have what it takes to make the home look great. Once time, effort, and rental costs are considered, the experts are even cheaper than homeowners doing the work themselves.
