A Hands-On Review of The Cuisipro Foam Pump

We recently picked up something that’s been reviewed in magazines including Harpers and Vogue, a neat little gadget that’s perfect for your guest bathroom. It’s the new Cuisipro Foam Pump, a fun and practical little gadget that works very well and makes washing hands very fast, easy and convenient.

The Cuisipro Foam Pump is a soap pump that functions as a liquid soap dispenser, but with one key difference. What it does is to convert liquid soap into foam. So, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be thinking two things at this point. One, foam is nicer than soap and your guests will appreciate the difference; and two, a foam pump makes hand soap last longer… saving money in the long run.

Regular readers of my posts will know that I absolutely love frugality and things that save money. I also love gadgets that impress my friends and my guests. The Cuisipro Foam Pump is, as you might expect, going to score big points on both these criteria.

All in all, we found the Cuisipro Foam Pump easy to use, and it noticably helps save soap and water from day one. Operation is simple. Hand wash detergent is poured into the foam pump and then mixed with water. The mixture is then shaken so as to properly mix together. When mixed properly, the soap is easily dispensed using the foam pump.

It took us a few goes to get the right mix balance; not too soapy, not too runny. When we finally got the sweet spot, it was easy to use, fast and convenient. It also helps avoid wastage; handwash can be expensive and we love anything that’s going to help people save money.

The foam is usually a luxurious one and enables gentle yet thorough cleaning of the hands. Using this soap decanter allows detergent savings by up to 75 per cent while still allowing users to enjoy the aroma and feel of their preferred soap. Like I said, it ticks a lot of boxes!

The Cuisipro Foam Pump soap dispenser comes with a beautifully designed, ergonomic bottle that is easy to use and has a suction cup at the bottom to secure it firmly in place. I was impressed by the way the soap dispenser can be used one-handed: by pressing the top, the foam is dispensed before then being used to wash the hands clean.

All in all, it’s a well-priced item that’s available in Australia and worldwide. Anything at this price point that improves the experience of something as mundane and everyday as washing your hands, while saving money in the long run, gets my vote. So much so, that after receiving our review copy we went straight back to the supplier to order one for our second bathroom!

Family Rules - Stylish Decoration to Remind You and Your Family of the Little Things That Unite You

Bus roll prints are becoming more and more sought-after these days, and the Family Rules print, with its sleek, stylish look, seems to be quite a popular choice these days.

Bus rolls, these artful posters mostly seen in cafes and magazines, are now making their way into our homes as well. Though it can complement the design of the room by filling in empty wallspace, this bus roll is not only a decorative item - it is something deeper than that. It conveys a message that we all need to listen to - the values expressed in the lines appearing on the poster are not just words, but they remind us of some simple, general rules that could make our life so much more cheerful and balanced.

The Family Rules poster is A3 in size (approx. 33 cmx45 cm) and is available in black and latte, in two forms: in white solid timber frame with glass or simply on canvas. The framed print makes quite a nice decoration if you wish to hang it on the wall or if you just want to place it on the mantlepiece or on a shelf. The canvas print is a good choice if you choose to send it as a gift to someone -you can have it gift-wrapped or you can order a gift card to accompany the poster and make the present more attractive.

Unfortunately, the poster comes in only one size and in only two colors; however, it features an elegant, simple font, so its design can fit almost any interior design, from minimalist modern flats to ornamental, more traditional-looking homes.

A framed print of this type makes a nice present for your loved ones or serves as a creative decoration for your home. The Family Rules poster is there to sum up the rules of a balanced domestic environment.

The Beautiful Family Rules Print for Home Décor

It’s wonderful when a piece of home décor can be more than just something pretty, and the Family Rules print is not only beautiful but also a statement about what a family values and desires… and how certain members of the family are expected to behave! Available in a nice chalkboard black or a creamy latte colour, the print can also be ordered in a canvas variety that makes shipping and placing even easier.

Of course, it’s the contents of the print that make it so valuable.  A number of “rules” explain what’s expected of the family, and the rules are heartwarming and wonderful.  There are maxims on the Family Rules canvas that deal with attitude, relationships with others, and each member of the family’s overall outlook on life. The rules look at how family members deal with each other, and provide a useful reference point when reminding children how they should behave. 

Admonitions about attitude include being grateful, forgiving, and giving thanks.  These simple rules are critical in any situation, but in a family can mean the difference between peace and harmony!  The non-threatening reminder in the form of a piece of art makes the Family Rules print an essential part of any home.  Gratitude can be the deciding factor in nearly every situation, and forgiveness is especially important where family interactions are concerned.

The Family Rules canvas or print also makes a number of statements about how to act with others.  Simple politeness such as saying please and thank you bring a state of civility to family interactions. It might not be the peaceful nirvana of blissfully easy-going family life that we all dream about, but it’s gives us a temporary glimpse of how that perfect harmony might feel.  Using kind words and loving one another is also urged.  The family is also urged to try new things and, perhaps most importantly, to keep promises. 

The playfulness of the Family Rules print is also important.  Included is the order to “Be Happy.”  Everyone is encouraged to giggle and laugh.  The home is to be a place of joy and laughter, and the print serves to remind everyone of that simple fact.  To see those words mixed in with the more direct admonitions is to realize that the rest of the rules are designed to make the laughter and fun possible.

Art is important to life, but home décor is more than what might impress an interior decorator.  With the Family Rules print, a family can make very clear the stand they’re taking and the character of their home.  It’s simple, elegant, and most importantly, to the point.  Many art prints are beautiful, but few can so succinctly express the goals of a home.
