Spritz'N Wipe

The Spritz'N Wipe from Spritz'N is a very interesting product. I am reminded of the book written for children that basically says everyone has the same bodily functions. Well, taking a page from that book, everybody has the same need to clean up after those bodily functions.

There are times when plain, dry toilet paper just won't do it for your situation. This is where the Spritz N Wipe comes in. It is a handy little dispenser that is battery powered and sensor activated. What you do is hold the toilet paper in your hand with the toilet paper facing up. Move your hand in front of the sensor and the Spritz N Wipe dispenses a bit of moisture onto the toilet paper. Then go about cleaning up after your business and you're on your way.
The body of the unit comes with a double sided sticky mount and the ability to be mounted in a more permanent fashion. Shipped with the main unit was one bottle of the Spritz'N Wipe fluid. There are different scents available, but I really liked the original unscented fluid.

While this is not something that would be discussed in "polite company", as my grandmother used to say, I do feel this is a product that can be useful to many people and has been useful in our family.

I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Gluten Free with Our House

Husband has tossed around a gluten free diet as a possible way to help with his health issues. He has an autoimmune condition which causes inflammation of some of his joints. Gluten sensitivity or intolerance has apparently been linked with inflammation, so it seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately most gluten free products I have found just don't work well for our taste buds.

Then I found Our House Gluten free mixes through one of the review sites I use. I applied for the product review but was not approved because I did not live in their target states. I sent them an email offering to test the mixes in the future should they want to expand into Idaho grocery stores. It's amazing what an email can do! They decided to send me the All Purpose Baking Mix and the Cookie Mix anyway! And for free!
Unfortunately for them this was when I first started out with product reviews, so I was not very organized. It has taken me so much longer than it should, but I'm finally able to put together this #ProductReview.

While I have not had the chance to use the Cookie Mix, I have tried the All Purpose Baking Mix. According to their website the All Purpose Baking Mix is made from: Rice flour, long grain brown rice flour, sorghum flour, baking powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, monocalcium phosphate), tapioca starch, xanthan gum.
It can be used for any application calling for bisquick or a similar baking mix. I made the copy cat version of a seafood restaurant's cheddar biscuits, which look very similar to the image on the front of the box. The Baking Mix worked perfectly and I could not taste any difference. I was not fast enough to take any photos, but I will make sure to take some of the cookies I plan to make this weekend.

Ultimately I'm extremely impressed with the company and very happy with the products. I highly suggest Our House and their gluten free mixes.

Spritz N Clean

I LOVE this little gadget!
The Spritz'N Clean from Spritz'N is way too much fun, and quite useful. I bet you've had a time where you were using your phone as a phone *gasp* against your face. When you were done with the call it had face grease all over it. You tried to wipe it clean and just made a mess. If you had had the Spritz'N Clean you could have laid a gentle mist upon the surface and used the included MicroChamois to polish it clean. The MicroChamois comes in its own plastic holder to keep it dust and dirt free when not in use. The Spritz'N Clean comes with two velvet-like drawstring pouches. I'm not entirely sure why there are two, but I think one might be for the unit and MicroChamois and the other for the bottle of liquid that goes into the unit. This also comes with the 4 AAA batteries needed to work.

Check out my quick video of cleaning my camera lens.

The unit I originally received leaked the cleansing liquid. I emailed Spritz'N and was extremely pleased with their quick response, apology and immediate shipment of a new product. I was not required to send back the old unit before getting a new one.

The negatives I can find about this product is that I want to see it spray the mist, but in my testing it seems to do better when faced away from me and towards the item I want to clean. Also, I have used this on Husband's glasses and, while it did a fine job with the misting (get it, fine mist?) the MicroChamois was not large enough to cover both sides of the glasses at the same time, so the polishing was a bit difficult.
