#ProductReview: Christmas Santa Toilet Seat Cover #seatcover

Christmas Santa Toilet Seat Cover 1

It may seem a little early to be considering purchasing things for Christmas, but for me, I shop all year round. I look at the Christmas decorations when I go to yard sales. I am currently cross-stitching a Christmas stocking for my youngest because I want it finished in time to use for this Christmas. I love Christmas and that's why I wanted to do this review. I have a half bathroom on the first floor of my house which is the bathroom pretty much every visitor uses. I have always wanted to completely overhaul it for my Christmas Eve Party, but I really didn't know what I wanted to do with it. Well I have been supplied with one Christmas Santa Toilet Seat Cover set that will now be my solution to this dilemma.

This is a four piece set. It includes the actual toilet seat cover, a rug for around the bottom of the toilet, a cover for the top of the toilet and a Kleenex box cover. It is made out of 100% polyester according to the tags. It feels a lot like felt though for most of it. The beard for Santa is a different material, but I couldn't tell you exactly what that is. Important to note is that it says dry clean only. You cannot wash any of the pieces in you home washing machine. I think that is because some of the embellishments re hot glued on instead of sewn. For me, that restricts me to using the decoration for only my Christmas Eve party until my little kids get bigger. I'm potty training my middle child, so I'm afraid accidents will ruin it if I leave it out for the entire holiday season. It's a really cute design.

I love Santa's face and the top part of the set, when you actually have a kleenex box in use will look like Santa's hat. You need the kleenex to show the white tuft on the hat. I don't keep kleenex in my bathroom because it is game for my kids to pull all the pieces out of it.

My biggest complaint, other than my kids not letting me use it for the entire month of December, is that the piece that goes on top of the toilet is really big. It has elastic to hold it on the toilet top, but it just appears stretched out when it is hanging over it. I realize that this design it to make sure it will fit on nearly every style of toilet, but Santa's face is a bit tight to get on and I know that there are different sized toilet lids. It seems like the toilet top part should be a tight fit too. It's really a minor complaint. It still looks good all together in the bathroom.

A note about the rug, it does have some kind of padding inside of it. Just a little bit of foam to cushion your feet. The underneath is a piece of cloth that feels a little thin to me. It has those little rubber non-slip dots on it to help hold it in place. It's super cute. Just try not to get anything on it since you have to dry clean it.

I really love the design. I wish it were machine washable so I could use it more.

#ProductReview: Jar, Bottle & Can Opener By PumpkinStore #jaropenerpumpkinstore

My dad used to say that if you gave him a lever long enough, he could move the world. Of course you need more than just the lever, but you get the idea. Well I know lots of people that have trouble opening bottles and jars because they just can't get a good grip on the lids. You need some way to give yourself more leverage in order to twist those lids off. Here's the solution for most household jars, bottles, and cans: PumpkinStore's Jar, Bottle, & Can Opener.

PumpkinStore Jar Opener 1

The idea behind this device is that you put fit the lid into the opener into the hole where it fits tightly. You don't go with the hole that is too big because you need the opener to be able to squeeze tightly on the lid. There are four different sized holes. If your container looks like it could just barely fit in a hole, you can spread the handles in order to make it fit which will actually help with opener in. Once the lid is fit in the device, you squeeze the handles together where it is it most comfortable for your hand, twist, and open the container. There are grooves in the handle to make it more comfortable for your hand and fingers. It is also coated in food grade polypropylene and rubber to make it non-slip.

I got this with my mom in mind. For people who have arthritis, doing something as simple as opening a jar can be nearly impossible. She has arthritis really bad in her hands and can barely open jars and bottles. This will give her the leverage she needs and a wide enough grip that she will actually be able to open things again. I will be giving her something that most of us take for granted. She hasn't had a chance to try it out, but I tried it out on four different containers. I really don't understand what cans you would use it on because the different between a can and a jar to me is that a jar has a lid and cans do not. Somehow it can be used on cans though.
