I'm a knitter. Part of the knitting process is the final wash and "block" where you take what you've created, gently wash it, then lay it out to dry in the shape that you want.
I've used several different wool washes for this purpose, including expensive ones designed just for hand knitters, but I've found that Ecover's delicate wash works just as well for my purposes. It doesn't foam up badly, it has a light scent that isn't offensive, and it rinses out easily, which is key for me, as I can't wring or spin my knits.
Also important, it doesn't seem to strip the colour out of the wool like some washes do, though it is dependent on the yarn. I do have to wash each item individually to ensure that colours don't bleed.
As an environmentally conscious person, I like the Ecover products.
This toy is indestructible and multi-purpose. I use it for: -entertainment. My dog drops it, it bounces around, he plays fetch with himself. -exercise. He plays fetch with me. -scent training. I fill it with yummy things, hide it, and get him to find it. -entertainment for me: I fill it with peanut butter, freeze it, and give it to him as a popsicle in the summer. Dogs + peanut butter = amusement. -easy to clean -doesn't get smelly
It might be a bit more expensive than other dog toys, but it certainly pays for itself with its longevity and multiple uses.
I use this GPS for both work and personal reasons. I like that it is small, light and easy to carry. It comes with a belt clip, but I don't use it because I'm paranoid about it falling off. It has survived several dunkings and soakings without incident.
This is great for marking points on a map, or marking where you went, and for geocaching. I use it for marking campsite locations, or locations of points of interest, or recording items that I have to report to others (the river I work on is an international border, so recording GPS coordinates of new trails, etc. is very important.) I recommend coming up with a shorthand for each trip (a few initials) to put in for your waypoints, because typing out long words takes time and is a bit awkward. There are only a few buttons, the display is clear, and there are lots of additional mapping products available for the unit if you want more.
The only drawback of this product (why I gave it a B) is the instructions. I didn't find the instructions from Garmin to be very helpful. The labels on the buttons don't really indicate their use, as each button has multiple uses. There are, however, many helpful videos posted by users on YouTube that I found. I kept getting confused and marking waypoints instead of independent data points, but after watching a few videos I figured it out.
I've used more expensive units, but I found them confusing and I wasn't using all the features of the unit. This has all that I need!
