Last Monday, America honored the work by taking a day off. Although it may seem ironic, but what better way to celebrate our work than to relish the fruits of our labor? Like food and shelter, downtime is an important reward for our efforts.
Although leisure is an end in itself, I also believe that it is an indispensable tool for more. In fact, I would like to argue that this is the key foundation of the progress of all mankind. Come to think of it, every innovation is driven by our desire to become lazy.
From TV remotes that ease the burden of changing channels, to automatic transmissions that switch our mechanisms, evidence of our motivation to eradicate work is everywhere. Without this laudable desire we would probably still be living in caves. Therefore, in the interests of promoting civilization, I thought it appropriate to write about products that make life easier:
• Strawberry Peel: No matter how delicious the fruits are, the imperfect world requires them to have a flip side. As one example, to enjoy the delicious taste of strawberries, requires the fatigue of removing its inedible parts. To speed up the execution of strawberry destiny, OXO makes an effective and efficient tool for removing stems: https://www.oxo.com/products/preparing/fruit-vegetable-tools/strawberry-huller.
• Cobrahead: While many people are looking for more environmentally friendly options, collecting weeds is such a tedious job that it can entice the biggest lumberjack to reach for the roundup. To help this manual task reduce the load a bit, you may want to consider using a Cobrahead garden tool. Although it is a very versatile device, it has received rave reviews across the country about weeding. Standing means allows you to easily collect weeds, including their roots. For more information, go to http://www.cobrahead.com/.
• Egg Cleaner: In addition to the fact that cleaning boiled eggs often causes pain, dishes include the shell. For a future free of this debris, Easy Ee Peeler has a design that makes the shell slide without damaging the egg. It is available online and at Walmart: https://bit.ly/3heU9W4.
• Rescue tape: is it sick children, is it a leak, isn’t it weird how problems that require immediate attention happen in the middle of the night or while you’re out of town? Although there is no time for this, silicone lifeline (http://www.rescuetape.com/) often provides a timely patch that allows you to postpone a more permanent fix. Just wrap it in a tube and cure in 60 seconds, forming a hard patch. Many retailers, including Amazon, sell this product.
• Bayco Nightstick: If you ever work on machines, there seems to never be enough light (at least for me). What’s worse, the light sources I’ve worked with are difficult to mount in such a way that you can really get the lighting where you want it. To solve this problem, Bayco has introduced a work lantern (model-SLR 2120) with a magnetic base that allows you to use many more mounting methods so you can really see what you are working on. Although I haven’t tried it yet (but plan to), this product is getting huge reviews. You can buy this product in many places, and more information is available here: https://www.baycoproducts.com/productsbayco/led-lights/item/slr-2120.
• Wrist magnet: If you really enjoy attaching screws while working on home improvement projects, I recommend you don’t read any further. If you don’t want to unscrew the screws, a magnet on your wrist is the product for you! This gadget is Velcro around the wrist and uses heavy-duty magnets to secure the screws. Whether you need something to contain what you’ve removed, or a placeholder for what you’re going to install, this product will be especially handy. Especially when working down stairs. I’m just sorry I came across this product when putting gutters. To come across your own, go here: https://www.top5reviewed.com/magnetic-wristbands/.
Hopefully you will work at least one of these tools and save time and reduce effort. Although the suggestions in this article do not always save money, currency comes in a variety of forms, and time is the most expensive commodity of all. Also, with the development of our civilization, on which you are lazy, do not let future generations down!
