Filter Queen Defender Air Purifier Review

So I went to the home show in Everett WA to check out some of the new products they had available and one of the stands that I just so happened upon was a Company called "FilterQueen." A leader in the industry of Air filters and Vacuum cleaners. There filtering systems will remove down to .01 micron particles from your surfaces as well as the air you breath. Just to put a little perspective on things. You know those large over sized hepa filter systems that you see at almost all Dr's offices. Well Hepa filters although good will only remove down to .03 micron particles. So you still have more small particles that you are missing with that expensive hepa system. Unfortunately most of the particles that are floating in the air we breath are actually smaller then .03 microns. That means that the FilterQueen system is 3x better at cleaning the air you breath. I was not expecting to be interested in the product when they first asked me if they could stop by my house to give me a demo of the units they offer and let me play around with them a little bit myself. Now I wasn't expecting to buy anything when they came but I have to say that these units are very impressive. Both the Air purifier and the vacuum use the same filtering properties which means that the air that comes out of the vacuum is of the same quality that comes out of the air purifier.

 The vacuum also offers plenty of fun attachments and tools for pretty much any job. Now I have used a lot of different vacuums in my time and this is by far the most impressive. This vacuum has so much suction that i decided to try it on the rugs next to my entry. They always seem to look like they are covered in mud and leaves from people walking in and out. However just a few passes over the rugs with the "FilterQueen Majestic" and the rugs look as though they were shampooed. This is not an exaggeration this vacuum really does this good of a job. Ever since I started to use the Majestic Vacuum and the Defender Air Purifier from "FilterQueen" my home has already begun to smell cleaner and I can breath easier. Which is a good thing for me since I am an asthmatic and already have trouble breathing around this time of year. As someone who enjoys clean air quality and a clean house. I would definitely recommend these products to any and all. The filter replacement cost is about the same. But the air purifier only has to be changed once a year unless it is being used in a large room with a lot of outside airflow but if used in the manner intended a filter should last for about a year. The vacuum on the other hand is dependant on how much you suck up with it. The canister will hold up to 16lbs worth of dirt and misc. The filter does not need to be changed on this unit until you begin to loose suction and at that point you just dump the whole bin out in the trash and put a new filter in. Both units come with a great warranty! The Defender has a lifetime warranty on the motor and components. The Majestic has a great warranty as well covering the motor for the first few years then if you have any problems after that they have a motor replacement plan where you just pay the cost of the motor and they will come out to you and swap them out for you. I am very happy with these products and I can't imagine not having them now. My old vacuum was a joke and as far as my old ionizers for cleaning the air they sucked. In just 10 min with the defender on in our bedroom there was no more smell (we put it next to the diaper pail) and no more stuff floating through the air.

Wubba Nub binkie review

I am the father of a beautiful baby girl who is now coming up on 15 months. When she was first born I tried all the different types of binkies from all manufacturers I could find and she just was not having it! So when she was six months old, we went to the doctor's office and I decided to see if they had any binkies I could try with her. Low and behold, they did and though it was not a Wubbanub it was the same type of binkie that they attach to the Wubbanub. I tried it and for the first time she took one and to this day those are the only binkies she will take. I immediately went out to the store and bought several different types with the same nipple and came across the Wubbanub. She right away loved them! And as an added bonus it gives your child a toy they always have with them. There are several different types of stuffed animals attached to the back side of the binkie. They are easy to clean, fun for the kids, and durable. (they can go in the washing machine or be hand washed!) My daughter has 3 of the ones that they offer right now including a cat, duck, and a frog. If you are interested in checking them out they have them at Babies'r us. Or check them out at Wubbanub

Arnova 7 G2 Review

I have been looking for a tablet or an eBook for a while now and I have been looking at the Archos home tablets for a while. Then I happened to stumble upon a great deal on the Arnova 7 G2 which is made by Archos. So I decided to give it a try.

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App
I have to say that in the few hours that I have had to play around on it I am really enjoying the Arnova 7 G2. True it does not have the largest built in memory at only 4gb but it is expandable with a micro sd up to at least a 16gb since that is the largest card that I have on-hand right now. It is well equipped to do almost anything I could want. The only problem that I have seen so far is it does have a little bit to much lag with the keyboard. Other then that I have no complaints. It runs smooth fast plays my videos, music, surf the web, and games with no problem. Overall I am impressed with this great little tablet and I would definitely recommend this product to others looking for a tablet that's easy to use and has a high def image.

So if you get the chance check out Archos and the great line of products they offer. Please feel free to comment on this review. I am always interested in any questions I can answer and hearing my readers opinion. Archos

Noxicare product review

So I recently got a package from Noxicare pain relief cream and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The product was everything they described. It has no scent which when you look at the ingredients in it you would think it would have a strong smell, and yet there is none. It has all natural ingredients too!

 It takes about 10-15 min for the rub to initially take effect but once it starts, it definitely works! It is the only cream or rub that has ever actually worked for me. Pair that with the fact that it has no scent and no greasy after feel or residue it makes it perfect for using when you don't want to smell like you've been rubbed down with eucalyptus. I would gladly recommend this product to everyone who suffers from muscle pain to deep joint pain. Granted it will take longer for deep seated pain but it does work. I hope that anyone who reads this won't just take my word for it but will go to check out their products for yourself. If you would like to check them out and decide that you would like to try their products they have asked me to give my readers a promo code for an additional 10% off your purchase price. Go here and enter promo code BLGDS. And I look forward to hearing your input on the product as well.
