Prevail Quilted Cotton Adult Disposable Large (12″ x 8″) Washcloths with Lotion 48 CT

December 16th, 2014


These are very thin and not what I’d use for total body cleansing (No Rinse is the nice thick wipe for that). These will do for minor touch-ups at the toilet or cleaning our hands, although my boyfriend does not like the lotiony feel of them (I don’t mind it). These do a slightly better job of cleaning than baby wipes but not much. Would not repurchase.

adidas Originals Men’s Adissage Sandal

December 16th, 2014

41aO4gUAf3L._SS300_I’m a girl and have worn these flip flops for years! I have wide feet so I buy the men’s and adjust inward, rather than squeezing into the women’s. These are my primary go-to shoes while I’m home, and sometimes while I’m out. You can’t beat the feeling of having your feet massaged all day. If you’re sensitive though, you probably have to start with socks or maybe can’t wear them at all. My boyfriend has sensitive feet and wouldn’t wear these in ten million years. But I walked around barefoot a lot as a kid and have pretty tough soles.

The only problem with these is they wear out very quickly. Within months, the massage nubs start dropping off and scattering around the house. Our robotic floor cleaners push them to the edges wear I pick them up by hand. It’s annoying. I wish they lasted longer, but if the nubs were stronger, they might be unbearable to wear.

So I have a system: as soon as the first nubs drop off, I retire the pair to the outdoors. I leave a pair at each exit of our home so I don’t wear the outside ones inside our home (cleaner, too!). I don’t really care if the nubs scatter outdoors. Then when they get too gross after months or years of outside use, I toss them. Also by now, the inners have worn down so much there is no longer any support (which is very good when the shoes are new). Yes, that means I have to buy them constantly, but they feel that good on my feet.

Also, don’t expect these to dry quickly after wearing at the pool or getting out of the shower. They’re not meant for that. (Don’t wear these in the shower!) Dry your feet first. If you wash them, leave them out in the sun and they’ll be fine. But I find that mine wear out too fast to really get dirty inside, and if they’re dirty outside, so what.

These also look cute and go with everything! It’s not an especially masculine style, so they don’t scream “men’s”. I get lots of compliments on them all the time. It’s nice to wear slides when you know you might be waiting a long time (say, a hospital waiting area while someone’s having surgery) and slip them off and put your feet up for a while. Very convenient.

Whisker Lickins Crunch Cat Treats

September 16th, 2014


My mom bought these treats for our cats as part of their Easter present. They went nuts over them! So I had to get more. Amazon has the best price. The kids go crazy for them, so they are for special occasions, which means, all the time. We use them to reward exceptional cuteness and unconditional devotion. Our baby girl does a little dance for them on the kitchen floor.
