Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stain Remover Review and Giveaway!

If you are like me and have been using a liquid stain remover, well this is something that you definitely need to check out. I'm sort of a clutz and I have lost or broken or spilled countless bottles of liquid stain remover. Even now, I have a bottle and its new and the nozzle is broken. In order to use it I have to unscrew the broken nozzle and pour it on the stain, which I always pour too much. With Fels-Naptha none of those problems are an issue. Because its basically a laundry bar. It looks like a soap  bar and you use it to rub into your stain just like you would with the liquid stain remover.

 I have never used a laundry bar and found it quite neat to use, It's been around for over 100 years so you know its a tried and true product. In the picture below you can see the bar on top of the box.

  • No broken nozzles
  • No liquid loss from overusing your liquid stain remover
  • No plastic spray bottle waste
  • Longer lasting than the liquid stain removers 

Also see them on Facebook at
There is also a great sweepstakes that is taking place thru the August 28th.  

One winner will win the  $500 grand prize and 119 second place winners will receive a coupon for a free bar of Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry bar. Thats 120 winners for every year Fels-Naptha has been helping remove America's toughest stains! 

Now go ahead and enter to win one of 3 coupons for a Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar from Desert Firefly!

Ozeri WeightMASTER Digital Bathroom Scale with Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection Review

I'll be reviewing the Ozeri WeightMASTER Digital Bathroom Scale with MICROBAN Antimicrobial Product Protection.  When I received the scale the picture on the box does not do it justice.

When you take it out of the box the first thing you notice is the oversized LCD screen. When it lights up the xBright technology illuminates the LCD screen with a lovely bright blue screen. I also like how its large numbers so you don't have to wear your glasses like I would to read the numbers. The illumination also makes it so that you can EASILY read it without a light on if you choose to use it during the night. Another feature I enjoy is that it runs on 3 AAA batteries. No weird or awkward batteries that you have no idea where or how to replace.

 I have a big household with dogs, cats 2 children and 2 parents so this Microban antimicrobial product protection is great. I cannot believe that on a regular scale the bacteria can double every twenty minutes. Have you ever thought to clean off your scale regularly? Probably not if you are like me. This is a great added layer of protection that I enjoy vs my other regular scale.

 Another feature is the large weighing platform to stand on. It weighs up to 400 lbs so almost anyone can easily stand on the scale without having to strain to stay on the scale.  This scale will easily change between lbs, kgs, and st.  So if you are used to weighing yourself in another way it easily converts.   This scale is really easy to use and to be honest I love to use it at night just to see the blue xBright technology screen. It makes me wish this doubled as a night light.
Nice and Slim

  • Features Microban antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
  • Innovative design features a large weighing platform infused with Microban antimicrobial technology for an added level of protection that won't wear away for the life of the scale.
  • Microban antimicrobial protection works 24/7 to keep the surface of the scale cleaner (on an unprotected bath scale, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes).
  • New oversized LCD with xBright technology provides immediate and easy-to-read results. Uses 4 high-precision GX sensors that weigh up to 400lbs (180 kg) in 0.2 lb or 0.1 kg increments.
  • New StepOn technology captures the precise weight measurment upon contact. (no tapping required.)
  • Convenient Unit Button switches between lbs, kg, and st. 
  • Auto-calibrates and automatically turns off to conserve battery life.
  • Runs on 3AAA batteries (batteries included).

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Bear Grylls Get Out Alive Giveaway

 I was so excited when I heard Bear Grylls had a new show I couldn't wait for the first episode. The first season of GET OUT ALIVE with Bear Grylls is on and a new episode aired last night. I'll try to avoid spoilers but its just such a good show I totally want to give my opinion on everything and every team on there. Instead of a survival show that he normally hosts and stars in himself, each week there are sets of teams of two. They each compete under FOOD, SHELTER or OBSTACLE. Each team then is responsible for the food all of them eat, the shelter or whatever Obstacle Bear gives them. They must catch most of their food, along with rice and beans. Last night they ate eel. Bear then evaluates each of the contestants based on if they would GET OUT ALIVE. He dismisses one team at the end of each episode. As usual theres couples, siblings, father/daughter team, and Best Friends. As each team gets picked off another team has the chance to win a Fiest Pit which is basically everything on the menu at Chilis.  They get to bathe and clean up too. I generally enjoy the new show and think these bracelets are pretty darn handy. You never know when you need one, and I'd personally love to have anything from Bears line of products, which the contestants are always wearing in the show. He's got some nice stuff. So why not go ahead and try for a chance to win one of these!
