Samples received for consideration
We’ve been enjoying a schedule-free summer. Well, sort of.
There are so many fun things to do during these few warm months out of the year in New Jersey. So while we are on a break from the usual sports activities, daily lunch packing and homework, we have traded it all for a different kind of crazy.
Summer, I’m finding is just as hectic as the rest of the year, so we wanted to share a few cool new products that are making our lives easier, and more comfortable.
Have your heard of Persil? I hadn't until the company sent us a sample to try. This European laundry detergent brand is finally in the US! ConsumerReports.org just rated Persil ProClean Power-Liquid 2in1 “the best detergent they have ever tested”, ranking it 1st in their recently released results, and relegating Tide, which has held the top spot for years, to 2nd place.

I'm already a fan of Invisible Glass. Ever since I first discovered these streak-free cleaning products I refuse to buy anything else. Their new EZ Grip soap-free glass cleaner is my favorite so far. It disperses the product evenly almost like a foam with the same streak-free clean I love. The Invisible Glass Reach & Clean Tool is awesome too - great for tall windows or mirrors. I also love to use the lens wipes for cameras, phones and eyeglasses.
This moldable glue kit includes everything you need in a small package. My favorite way to use it is to fix broken wires, especially my phone cord. 5 single use packs in bright fun colors come in a storage tin
with a booklet filled with handy and creative project ideas and how-to guides. $15; Sugru
