Prefense Hand Sanitizer Review and Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
If you have kids you know how easily they can pick up all those nasty germs.  From needing to touch everything they see, put everything in their mouths, or sucking on those dirty fingers it’s inevitable that they are going to pick up something nasty.  I thoroughly believe in hand washing, but when we are away from soap and water I have always relied on alcohol based hand sanitizers.  Those sanitizers smell, don’t last long and always dried out my hands.  I am so glad I have had the chance to try Prefense alcohol-free hand sanitizer that lasts all day or up to 10 hand washings.  When we are on the go all day, germs are now the last thing on my mind.  Prefense is also a good way to save a little money.  It only costs about $0.06 per day compared to other hand sanitizers that cost about $1.20 per day, even higher depending on how many times you apply it.  If you purchase (or win) the 8oz bottle of Prefense you will be getting about 640 applications, or up to 2 years worth of hand sanitizing protection!

My experience:

When I first received my bottle of Prefense I of course looked over the pamphlet.  A few things stood out right away.  Prefense is water based, moisturizes your hands and is non-toxic.  I always check first to make sure products I receive are safe for the whole family.  When I first used the Prefense I noticed an immediate difference from the other alcohol sanitizers.  The Prefense dispensed like soft foam and felt like a light-weight moisturizer on my hands.  The other sanitizers usually dry out right away and leave my hands feeling dry.  Prefense left my hands feeling smoother and I felt confident about leaving the bottle at home the rest of the day.  With other hand sanitizers, I am usually pulling it out and re-applying it throughout the day. My hands did feel smoother and softer after application. 

How Prefense Works:
Prefense’s active ingredient dries into an invisible, protective film that stands guard against pathogens you encounter throughout the day.  If a transfer of germs occurs while Prefense is on defense, it actively slices the cell wall of pathogens you confront for up to 10 hand washings, whether wet or dry.  The patented formula contains a silica complex that keeps your hands feeling smooth throughout the day.

Advantages and Benefits:
·         100 % alcohol free
·         Safe for adults and kids
·         Provides safe, unsurpassed antibacterial protection for hands
·         Tested against strains of Staphylococcus aureus including MRSA strains
·         Stops skin to skin transfer of germs
·         Saves you money

Happy Mother's Day

I would like to wish all the wonderful, beautiful and amazing mothers a Happy Healthy Mother's Day!

Avoid Maintenance Fees

If you haven't heard yet, most banks are switching from free checking accounts and charging maintenance fees now.  Not only are they charging more in maintenance fees some banks are going to start charging for atm use.  I recommend looking over your banks policy and fees and see if you are paying more than you should. 

If you are being charged high maintenance fees because you don't meet the requirements try switching to a bank that still offers free checking like US Bank or PNC.



The following banks are charging maintenance fees unless you qualify for a waiver: (requirements vary by bank and state, but usually include a monthly balance, and/or direct deposits, or qualifying purchases each month)

Chase  Monthly Fee $12
Bank of America  Monthly Fee $8.95
Harris Bank  Monthly Fee $7
TFC Monthly Fee $9.95
Wells Fargo Monthly Fee $5.00
Citi Bank Monthly Fee $8.00

Make sure you check your statements every month!  Switch to paperless statements to help the environment.  And look into Online Bill Pay to save even more!

BrytonPick Floss Review


Here at Tips for Savings we are all about finding ways to save money and help the environment.  We have been so lucky to hear about and try new BrytonPick Floss.  Go ahead and forget about that old stringy floss in a box that you have to wrap around your fingers.  BrytonPick Floss is easy to use, portable, and reusable! 

First I love the thought of discreet and convenient floss, especially when we are out to eat, over at friends or family, or just out and about.  The BrytonPick Floss can be used anywhere and is completely safe to use.

The BrytonPick Floss helps protect against tooth decay and gum inflammation.  Removes food debris, plaque and stimulates gums to help prevent gingivitis.  It is flexible enough to adapt to your tooth shape.  And they come in different colors!

Instead of the ordinary string floss, BrytonPick uses a flexible stainless steel tip to clean your teeth.  The stainless steel tip and be cleaned and reused for up to 30 days, and it is germ-resistant!  Also, I love that BrytonPick is made in the USA from completely recyclable materials  



Check out their website and watch the video on how to use BrytonPick Floss!
