Executioner Electric Fly Swatter

Executioner Electric Fly Swatter

I have bought two other electric fly swatters. Each of them worked okay, but had their share of problems. One of them, for instance, was constantly sparking before it touched anything which would scare the flying insects away before I had a chance to execute them. The other one seemed to daze the bugs without actually killing them. The Executioner is the best one I’ve owned, hands-down. It is quiet and gives a sufficient enough zap to kill even the nastiest things like large hornets. Before we go out and buy one, let’s explore the often asked question of whether or not electric fly swatters are safe.

Are Electric Fly Swatters Safe?

Having used an electric fly swatter for 3 years, I can state with utmost certainty that they are definitely not safe for flying insects. The Executioner electric fly swatter is the least safe of all because it destroys flying insects the most efficiently. Your greater concern, however, might have been whether or not these electric fly swatters are safe for humans. Electric fly swatters are activated by pressing a button. The button needs to be continually pressed-down while it comes in contact with a flying insect. You absolutely can give yourself a non-fatal shock by holding down the button while striking your other hand. I was dumb enough to try this myself the first time I took it out of the package. It was not a pleasant feeling, but it certainly didn’t cause me nearly as much harm as it would one of its intended, flying victims. I suppose the single, biggest danger of an electric fly swatter is that it might make you daring enough to be around dangerous flying insects like hornets or wasps. Some worry about whether or not electrocuting flying insects is cruel. I’ll speak to that.

Are Electric Fly Swatters Cruel?

I remember when Bug Zappers came out back in the 1980s. We sat on our back patios, sipping cocktails and beer, while we listened to mosquitoes fry by the thousands. None of us ever worried it was cruel. The sounds of these harmful pests crisping in the still of the dark night was music to our ears. Consider the filth and germs carried by flies. Consider the danger presented to us by hornets. No, it is not cruel to use an electric fly swatter.

Leather Apple Watch Band

This leather apple watch band will completely transform the look and feel of your Apple watch. My recent purchase of the gold aluminum 5-series Apple Watch is the 3rd iWatch I’ve owned. Since I did not want a pink band I gave that one to my wife and decided I wanted something different. After owning an iWatch for the last 4 years, I grew tired of the numerous iWatch bands that I’ve owned. Whether they are metal, plastic, or cloth the iWatch still looks like – well, an Apple watch. This leather Apple watch band by OUHENG completely changes that. It is a bit bigger, sturdier, and provides a more rugged look to the iWatch that resembles something you’d see at a Cabela’s or Sportman’s Warehouse. Wear your iWatch hiking while using the MapMyHike app will make you feel as though both you and your watch truly belong in the great outdoors.

Compelling Reasons to Buy

Leather iWatch Band

There once was a time about 4-5 years ago when it was cool, fresh, and smart to be seen with an iWatch. You stood out from the crowd as having the latest technology on your wrist. Those days are gone and there is nothing exciting or new about it anymore. The OUHENG leather iWatch band truly stands-out from the rest of the apple watch accessories on the market. At first glance, your friends will think you are wearing an outdoor sportsmen’s watch, not the familiar Apple techno gadget. The new, 5-Series watches have a great new face for getting all of your outdoor apps on the screen: Compass, pedometer, Temperature Altitude, Weather, Date, Time, Calendar, etc., or however else you want it to look. All of your apps will look outdoorsy and rugged in leather.

Other Compelling Features

If you’ve ever warn leather watch bands, you know that the leather can make your wrist sweat and itch. The OUHENG leather watch band has genuine leather on the outside, but comfortable vinyl on the inside. It fits and feels great on your wrist even when you’re hiking in the hot outdoors.

Snug Fit

There are enough holes on the leather strap to make the OUHENG leather iWatch band fit snugly or loosely on your wrist depending on how you like it. My single, biggest complain of this and perhaps any of the different iWatch band styles is that they are more difficult to put on your wrist. It is not too much of a problem once you get used to it, but still, there is something to be said about the simplicity of the original iWatch band.

Product Conclusions

At $15.00, this band is a little pricey compared to the myriad of other choices you have on Amazon. Still, it is no more than what you would pay for a good analog watch and it has style, durability, and excellent fit. If you want a leather iWatch band, I don’t think you can go wrong with this choice.

Swiffer Wet Jet Pads

Swiffer Wet Jet Pads

Swiffer Wet Jet Pads might just be the best product you never knew about. I say this because at one time I didn’t know what all the fuss was about over a simple, light-weight floor, light-duty floor mop. I learned differently when I had my basement floor finished in laminate. What was once a arduous, long task of sweeping then mopping has turned into a very quick and efficient job with the swiffer wet jet pads. The secret is how well this works is not in the mop but in the pads!

You can spend most of your hardwood or laminate floor cleaning by simply using the Swiffer Dry Pads. Essentially, these replaces the need for a broom and a dustpan. Simply attach them to the head of your swiffer broom and they will literally pick up dust, dirt, and small debris like a magnet. Little or no elbow grease is required. Often times my laminate floor shows a fine film of dust when the sun shines through the windows in the morning. This is how I know the floor needs a quick clean up. When you cannot get it looking clean with the dry pads (not too often), you know it is time to switch to the Swiffer wet jet pads.

The cute, little video below shows you how simple it is to dry and wet clean with the Swiffer. Swiffer also makes a complete Swiffer Starter Kit with spray feature. This is totally unnecessary. As the video below indicates, the simple, manual, hand-held, wet/dry broom for $12.00 works just fine.
