iTouchless Saves the Day in my Kitchen

The iTouchless is a super hero in my kitchen, saving me the horror of touching a dirty garbage can! The iTouchless also calms my nerves about my two small kids throwing things away, before the iTouchless came into our lives I was making them wash their hands every each and every trip to the trash.

iTouchless

iTouchless has a variety of different garbage cans for different needs, the particular model that I have is the IT13RX. The IT13RX is a 13 gallon can with a square opening that is 11.75”, which is large enough to hold a pizza box. It’s stainless steel design matches all of my other kitchen appliances, and can be cleaned with the same stainless steel spray cleaner that I use on all of the other appliances. It looks great in my kitchen, much better than my old white one, that’s for sure.

iTouchless also makes a round version of the 13 gallon can, as well as a smaller 8 gallon can. iTouchless even makes robotic vacuum cleaners and UV sanitizers for toothbrushes, touchless toilet seat covers, automatic soap and lotion dispensers, microfiber towels, and more. I love the iTouchless brand and have quite a few of their products in my house.

iTouchless has been around for 15 years, and they are always coming up with new and interesting products. One of the most innovative new products that I have heard of is an automatic door lock that uses your fingerprint instead of a key! I think that is just amazing, I can only imagine how much easier life would be if I could just unlock the door with a fingerprint instead of fumbling with my keys when my hands are full of shopping bags. It also seems like it would be even safer than a regular lock, since no one could make copies, and you could never lose your key. What a wonderful new invention!

Remington iLight Keeps the Hair at Bay

Have you ever had laser hair removal? If so, you know that it’s expensive, time-consuming, and even painful! Well, all of those things won’t trouble you if you invest in a Remington iLight Pro.

I am a registered Esthetician in the state of Massachusetts, and when I was in school the teachers encouraged us to try out all of the health and beauty treatments that we were able to get. I was able to get a Groupon for Laser Hair removal, and it’s really far from a quick or even permanent fix. I had to go for 6 sessions, and while the hair is mostly gone the laser technician told me that I should come back every 3-6 months for a “touch up.”

iLight Pro

That’s where the Remington iLight Pro comes in! I figured that if I was going to have to come in for a laser treatment 2-4 times per year at around $50 per treatment I might as well just get the Remington iLight Pro instead. It will pay for itself in the first year, yet I can use it for many years to come.

The iLight Pro is an IPL laser, which means Intense Pulsed Light. IPL is the technology that dermatologists use in professional hair removal, and now you can now get professional-quality results in your own home for less money for the treatment, and you don’t even have to tip! Unlike non-permanent treatments like waxing or dipilation  IPL doesn’t cut, burn or pull out hair, but instead works below the skin’s surface to disable active hairs and prevent new ones from growing.

Here is a quick bullet point list from the Remington website about how the iLight Pro works:

• Light energy is generated by a Xenon flash lamp and applied to the skin by a handheld device.

• The light targets the melanin or pigment in hair follicles, gently heating them and disrupting the growth cycle without damaging the overlying skin.

• To protect the skin, unwanted rays are safely filtered out, so that only light within the desired therapeutic range is allowed to pass through.

• Within a few weeks of your initial treatment the hair will begin to fall out and results should improve over time!

You might be surprised to know that Remington Products actually got it’s start as a firearms maker named E. Remington and Sons, which was founded all the way back in 1816! E. Remington and Sons made a few other things besides firearms, including farm equipment, typewriters, and sewing machines. In 1937 Remington started making health and beauty products, starting with electric shavers and then branching out into all of the Remington products that we are familiar with today, including curling irons, light-up makeup mirrors, and of course the iLight Pro!

If you would like to try laser hair removal  but you are a little wary of signing up for multiple expensive sessions at your local med spa, DealDash has the answer – The Remington iLight Pro. DealDash offers the Remington iLight Pro occasionally, if you are interested in one you should go to the auction page and click the blue “Alert Me” button, and DealDash will send you an email when a Remington iLight Pro is coming up for bid. Good luck everyone, and happy bidding!

 

Neato Keeps My House Neat & Tidy

Everyone has heard of robot vacuum cleaners, but my favorite one has not gotten as much recognition as some of the others – Meet Neato!

Neato is the best robot floor cleaning vacuum that I have ever run across, and I have actually owned 3 different models of a different brand in the past. Well, guess what? They are all piled in the closet now, because the Neato XV Signature is all I need!

Neato Floor Robot

One of my favorite features that Neato has is he tells you when his dust bin and filter need to be cleaned. It really takes a lot of the guesswork out of keeping him in good running shape. He also thanks you when you complete his request, which I think is just adorable!

Neato politely requests that you empty his dust bin and thanks you after you complete his request.

Another feature that I love about Neato is he is very easy to program. There are only a few choices on his menu, and it just takes a few pushes of a button to set his clock and then to set the days and times that you would like him to clean.

Neato Robotics has not been around as long of some of the other brands, they launched their first robot in 2010, but they have really improved the world of robotic vacuums since then. The Neato is different than some of the other robot vacuums because it doesn’t just randomly roam around the room, the Neato travels in straight line patterns that are partially overlapped, it has a laser that scans the room in a full 360° circle, and also maps the room being vacuumed while it is completing its task, which is really nothing short of amazing. The Neato XV series robot is even able to return to his home base by himself when he’s running out of power, and is able to remember where he left off cleaning, and continues to clean at the exact spot where he left off after he recharges himself.

I absolutely adore my Neato! I have him clean the bottom floor of my house every second day, and it really makes a difference when I do a big vacuuming with my Dyson at the end of the week. Before I won my Neato I was vacuuming every other day myself, it’s really great to be able to save so much time and scale down my time vacuuming to about an hour a week instead of 4 hours a week! And if you have pets you are in luck, no more vacuuming up fur everyday – Neato makes a robot vacuum specifically for pet owners.  So you see, Neato really makes life easier, and saves you time so you can enjoy your downtime instead of doing chores after work.

I was lucky enough to win my Neato on DealDash, and since these are a “1 Item Per User” on DealDash there is an increasingly high chance that the next person could get one at an even better deal. Speaking frankly, though, I am considering buying a second one at full price for the second floor of my home, so I could have two Neatos vacuuming both levels at once, they are just that good!

If you’re interested in seeing a small demonstration of my Neato and how he works, please visit my YouTube video below. And if you are interested in more DealDash themed videos feel free to subscribe to my channel while you are there, everyone is welcome! Good luck and happy bidding to all.

This Article Will “Tide” You Over While You Wait for a Detergent Auction Start

Do you have a certain smell that you remember from childhood? Does the scent of cookies baking remind you of your Mother or Grandmother?

Vintage Tide ad
An old Tide ad

Well, one of my favorite “scent memories” is Tide laundry detergent. The fresh clean smell takes me back to being a small kid and helping my Mom in the laundry room, loading up the clothes, measuring and pouring the Tide into the little cup. It may sound a little silly that one sniff of that wonderful fresh laundry detergent scent can take me back to childhood, but it’s actually a scientific fact. It’s really very interesting, I will tell you a little bit about how it works.

First, the olfactory nerve, which carries the sensory information for the sense of smell, is located very close to the amygdala. The amygdala is the the area of the brain that is connected to the experience of emotion and emotional memory. In addition, the olfactory nerve is very close to the hippocampus, which is also associated with memory. So basically, every time you smell a new scent you are creating a new memory.

Even though Tide makes me remember fond childhood memories, they have really made leaps and bounds of progress since I was a child in the 80s. The Tide Detergent brand was introduced to consumers starting in 1946, coming as a white powdered bead. In 1984 they started making the Tide of my childhood memories, a clear liquid detergent with a slight orange tint. Today, however, most (but not all!) of the different types of Tide are a bluish-color.

In addition to the liquid Tide that is so popular, they have also introduced the wildly popular Tide Pods. Tide Pods are such an innovative way to do laundry, it really takes the guesswork out; You just pop one in and you’re ready to get those clothes clean!

Here are a few bullet points from the Tide website:

  • Detergent + stain remover + brightener in one
  • Innovative, multi-chamber design separates ingredients until they hit the wash for outstanding cleaning power
  • No more measuring or spilling. Just toss one in!
  • Dissolves quickly in front & top load machines
  • Available in three scents: Spring Meadow, Ocean Mist & Mystic Forest

If you think that you are ready to give Tide Pods a try, DealDash has them available almost daily. However, if you like your tried and true liquid detergent, you’re in luck! DealDash has that, also. No matter what your preference, liquid or Pods, DealDash has you covered! Go check it out, book your Bid Buddy, and secure a win on a great product.

My name is Dawn and I love DealDash! I have only been bidding for around 9 months, but I am very patient and I have already won over 200 auctions. I am a Mom of 2 and I live in Massachusetts. If you would like to watch any of my DealDash “Unboxings”, click here!

Makia’s Hommage to Beer this Spring-Summer

People at Makia are considered to be some of the most stylish and you can find out why here!

How can you go wrong with beer and clothing? That’s just an example of what the team of Finnish designers at Makia Clothing are doing this spring. Their new lineup is inspired by beer. Since they consider some of their best ideas to come from times when they are sucking down suds, they have decided to create an entire collection devoted to bringing their passion for beer and clothes together.

Makia

The above is just an example of some of the unique and highly stylish fashion concepts that this team comes up with. Makia is already dressing the world in highly attractive accessories and apparel; you can count on Deal Dash supplying you with their products soon.

Makia takes the time to produce excellent clothing that is affordable and considered to be of the best quality. They achieve this by using high quality materials and using their passion for design to make some of the best looking clothing styles around. Moreover, I appreciate their dedication to quality. In a world where it’s hard to find a good pair of jeans that last for more than a few months, it’s good to know there are still manufacturers that care about the quality of their clothes.

Why They Stand Out

This team of friends with a passion for fashion is driven by one purpose and that is to bring you clothing that is designed with a straight forward approach, looks stylish and has the capabilities to endure harsh winter climates.

Makia

To put it bluntly, the clothes these guys make are fairly simple in looks. But there is something about the simplistic nature of the clothing that is highly attractive. Maybe it’s the fact that you can see the quality without a second guess and that speaks for itself.

I think what it comes down to is Makia is operated by a team of friends that get along and love what they do. Their passion bleeds into every piece of apparel and helps to create one of the most trusted brand names in all of Finland.

Makia

My belief is that we will soon be seeing this company in every shopping mall and on every website that sells clothes, but for now you can pick up a full host of Makia accessories soon right here on Deal Dash. The world has been asking designers for high quality clothing that is stylish and comfortable, Makia has answered and Deal Dash is now bringing it to you, which we know is one convenient source.

Mixing it up in the Kitchen with Kitchenaid

Do you have a favorite helper in the kitchen? I do! It’s my beautiful Artisan 5-quart mixer from Kitchenaid!

Kitchenaid makes makes the best stand mixers in the world, and I feel very fortunate that I am able to have one. Not only are they amazing at mixing dough and making pasta, but they have a color to suit every taste! Mine is hot pink, they call it “Raspberry Ice.”

Kitchenaid

When you get a Kitchenaid mixer, you get more than just a mixer! Here’s what’s in the box:

  • - Stand Mixer
  • - Flat Beater
  • - Dough Hook
  • - Wire Whip
  • - Pouring Shield

These attachments are very useful, the flat beater can turn a baked chicken breast into shredded chicken for BBQ or chicken salad in no time! I use the wire whip to beat cream cheese into cheesecake, and heavy cream into whipped cream. There are a lot of other attachments that you can get, such as the food grinder, ice cream maker, ravioli maker, and many more. These attachments save time as well as money – I will never buy whipped cream in a can again! The whipped cream that you can make with the Kitchenaid is delicious, and has just one ingredient, heavy cream.

Kitchenaid has been around since 1919, it was started by The Hobart Corporation. These days, however, it’s owned by Whirlpool. Interestingly, when the mixer first came out, it was sold at hardware stores! The mixers were The Hobart Corporation’s sole product for 30 years, but in 1949 they introduced the dishwasher. Following the mixer and the dishwasher came the fridge, in 1986. Since then, of course, they have added many other things to their repertoire, including coffee makers, juicers, blenders, toasters, waffle makers, and so many more.

If you are looking for a great deal on a Kitchenaid product, you should give DealDash a try. They have auctions for Kitchenaid mixers almost daily. In addition to the mixers themselves, they also auction off some of the different attachments from time to time. If you would like to know when DealDash is going to have Kitchenaid products available, just follow this link, and you will be taken to a page with all of the Kitchenaid products. Just click on the auction that you are interested in, then click the blue “Alert Me” button. DealDash will send you an email when that particular product is up for bid. Good luck everyone, and happy bidding!

Keurig + K-Cup = One Great Morning!

By this time, pretty much everyone in the USA has heard of Keurig, the company that makes the amazing coffee makers, right? Well, you may have heard of them, but let’s really get to know them…

For starters, Keurig is a New England company, they are located in Vermont. If you are familiar with Vermont, you would know what other food giant is located there, Ben & Jerry’s! Keurig’s main product that everyone knows about is of course the Keurig single cup brewer and corresponding K-Cups, but you might be interested to know that Keurig also makes a single cup espresso machine, too. It’s called the Rivo, and it’s capable of frothing milk for your lattes or cappuccinos.

How many flavors of K-Cups do you think are available to purchase? You might be surprised to know that the answer is over 268! Just a few of the flavors include Dark Roast, Medium Roast, Light Roast, Flavored, Decaf, Fair Trade Certified and Organic Coffee Roasts. There are also many popular brands such as Bigelow, Starbucks, Cafe Escapes, Celestial Seasonings, Gloria Jean’s Tea, Dunkin’ Donuts, Timothy’s Tea, and Twinings Tea just to name a few. If 268 flavors isn’t enough for you to choose from, Keurig even offers a gadget called “My K-Cup,” that you can fill with any coffee grounds that you would like to use to make yourself a custom flavor.

Keurig

If you’re curious as to how the Keurig and K-Cup work together, it’s simple! The K-Cup is a plastic container with a paper filter inside. Ground coffee beans, tea leaves, or other flavor mixes are packed in the K-Cup and sealed with an air-tight lid. This keeps the coffee grounds fresher for much longer than traditional bags. When the K-Cup is placed in a Keurig brewer, the brewer punctures both the foil lid and the bottom of the K-Cup with a sharp implement, and forces hot water under pressure through the K-Cup and into your mug of choice. Voila! Your coffee is ready! It’s amazing how such a simple design can make life so much easier.

Keurig is not only user-friendly, they also have amazing customer service. You can get in touch with them by email of course, but they also offer an actual physical address that you can mail in your feedback, as well as customer service over the phone that is offered 17 hours per day! They take calls from 7AM to Midnight every single day.

Keurig doesn’t just have ideas that the average person thinks are great– They also win awards, over and over again! For example, the Harris Poll has named Keurig the coffee maker “Brand of the Year” for 2012, 2013, and 2014. I am guessing when 2015 comes to a close that Keurig will be getting the Brand of the Year award yet again!

If you love coffee (or tea, or hot chocolate, or any hot drink, really!) then you should check out DealDash. DealDash offers the newest Keurig, which happens to be The Keurig 2.0 K400 Coffee Brewing System with Carafe. They also offer K-Cups on an almost daily basis. Go check it out, your coffee mug will thank you.
