Embarrassed About Making A “Stink”? – Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

A while back I received a little packet of the handy little single use toilet additives that help to get rid of that stink in your bathroom when you go. Okay so perhaps you’ve figured out what stink I was talking about? lol Just a Drop was featured on The Dr. Oz Show (Dr. Oz is a regular user of the product) as well as The Doctors TV Show, so you know that this product is good!

.05 oz Just a Drop bottleWhat can I say these handy little packets do do the trick, you open up the packet and empty into  toilet before you go and the product (“Just a Drop”) makes a deodorizing layer above the water surface and it reportedly stops 98% of the odor. Now I had my hubby test the product out and it did help a lot! I wouldn’t say that it was 98% (how do you measure that anyway?) but I would say a significant amount of the smell disappeared!

just a drop singlesThe smell of this Environmentally Friendly product? Have you smelled the newer smell of port-a-potty, recently I noticed that hardly have a smell of… well… you know what, to them. I think that this product must be the same scent as what they are using in the port-a-potties now. The scent is Eucalyptus, something I had never smelled previous, so I just kept telling my husband that the outhouse at our favorite fishing spot smell rather good! Lol A shame they took away that port-a-potty there, and now I have to wonder out into the woods and hope no one spots me to go. Lol Okay that is off topic Mariah (yup, I not only talk to myself by type to myself… I told you all I was slightly nuts!)… was that TMI, friends? Lol

A reminder that those that haven’t used a port-a-potty or an outhouse in a while, you’d be surprised at how odor free they are now. I the scent will clear the air, my friends, of course others may notice the Eucalyptus scent, but isn’t that better than what they could be smelling? lol

“Just a Drop” does help me feel more secure when I am out in public, visiting people or have company over and I have some in our bathroom (yes, I bought some when I ran out). I only have one bathroom in my tiny little house, so when we have people over the odor of the bathroom can spread quickly to the living room and who wants that? So this is a must have in my house, with people stopping by all the time lately.

Just A Drop Packets in hand
Just A Drop Singles in their plastic carrying pouch.

The Singles of the “Just a Drop” come with a handy little plastic sleeve that contains 10 packets of this product, so you can carry them in your pocket, purse or place them in your desk drawer and no one will be all the wiser, nor look at you wrinkling their noses because you stank up that bathroom that they needed to use. Instead, this product not only can save you from the embarrassment but it is a great way to show respect for others around you… so why not use it? 🙂

There is also a bottle of the product that you can purchase, it is perfect for in your bathroom at home or if you’re the boss and you are very nice, in the bathroom at work! The size of the bottle is it in a .05 ounce. Hey, if you use this you could actually tell your co-workers that your you-know-what don’t stink! 😛

Just A Drop Package
Sorry the package was opened for the picture, so here I hold the Package closed as best I can so you may see what the package looks like.

For me, I personally love the portable ones, as I carry some in my purse and put a few others in my bathroom. What is great (other than just keeping your air clean) is that it only takes a drop or two to do the trick, so it’s very economical… so don’t let the small size bottle scare you, it will last a long long time.

Have Pill Box, Will Travel – Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Sabi logI was lucky enough to receive a Travel Pill Box to Review.. this pill box is a Holster Clip & Go Travel Pill Box by Sabi sold on Amazon. As many of you know I am disabled with health problems, as a result of these health problems I have medications that I need to take several times a day. Whenever I go anywhere for the day or during the hours that I need to take my medications. I have needed to find a way to bring my medications with me on many occasions.

My Experience Before Receiving This Travel Pill Box from Sabi

In the past there has been occasions in which I have forgotten to bring my medications along with me. And/or I would be out for a longer period of time than I anticipated and so I wouldn’t have enough of my medications along with me.

I had used the daily part of my weekly medication pill box, in the past, however my new purse wouldn’t accommodate this daily portion, as my purse has fairly large spaces on both sides of the zipper. Worse yet the little container would pop open and I would end up digging in my purse for the medicines as they were loose in the bottom of my purse as a result.

My next solution was to place the little daily portion container in a ziplock bag. When that didn’t work to well, I started using little candy container to place my medications in, and I kept a supply in my purse for those “just in case times.” This seemed to work out fine, but after a while I realized that the medications were getting knocked around too much and the longer the medications stayed in the container the more breaking apart of the tablets became noticeable. Besides if I were in a movie theater or somewhere that I could not take my time, it was a pain to take out exactly what medications I needed.

Along came this Holster Clip & Go Travel Pill Box to the rescue!

Sabi pill box and box

I can place each of my medications into the separate 3 areas and have enough for one full day, since I take my most of my medications 3 times daily.

With the clip on this handy little travel pill box, I am able to clip it to my purse and not worry about the pill box falling out. I can also just slide open the pill box to remove the exact pills that I need to take and I don’t have to worry about digging around in my purse. Nor do I have to worry about swallowing pocket fuzzies with my medication… yes I admit it, I have gone so far, in the past, as to put my medications in my pants pocket.

Sabi pill box and the purseThe Quality of the Sabi  Holster Clip & Go Travel Pill Box, In My Humble Opinion

Pill Box in Pilot PocketThis BPA-Free pill box feels quite sturdy and so far, for almost a month of usage, I have not had a problem with it pulling open on me, and it is easy for painful hands, like mine, to slide open and close. I imagine that those with Arthritic hands would be quite pleased with this little pill box’s convenience and ease of use. I was able to fit into the compartments, 4 pills in all… and 2 of the pills are not small but rather large “horse pills” to me.

This pill box is just a part of the offerings by Sabi, as a matter of fact this is the smaller version of their HOLSTER grande pill box, so there are more options at Sabi for you to choose from. I like this smaller version, as it easily fits into my little purse, it would also fit into your pockets and taken where ever you go, I can see using this for airplane trips too!
