Premium Delicates #Laundry Wash Bags Review

I don't know but I may be the only one left
with a washing machine that has an agitator,
or in my case, I call it an irritator! 

Seems I'm always in a hurry - dump a load of clothes in and not seeing that something, be it a bra, the leg of a pair of boxers or anything else that can get twisted and pulled out of shape, has been skewered by the agitator through an opening.
Only do I find out when I go to put them in the dryer.
I untangle it, only to see it has been stretched out of shape! 

Well, InsideSmarts has just what we need!
Their #1 Best Wash Bags are remarkable!

They are made of premium-grade mesh that makes them as strong and durable as they are luxurious and so soft and smooth.  Small holes not like 'mesh sports bags' where laces can come through the large holes of other laundry bags I tried in the past.
Another thing I love about these is the zipper doesn't run along the top of the bag but just below on the side where there is an elastic zipper guard to protect and ensure a quiet, snag-free wash!
You receive a set of 4 ~: 2 Medium Bags (12" x 15")
and 2 Large Bags (16" x 19"). 
The medium's are perfect for my daughter's and I's delicates. 
I even put my nylons in one, I hate washing them by hand, they came out perfect. YAY!! Another thought I tried was to put everyone's socks in one - No more missing socks!
The larger one's are great for sweaters to help them hold their shape. There are tons of hoodies in this house -  no more getting the strings in a tangled mess!
I have been using these almost daily (we have a lot of laundry) for a few weeks and they have held up like happy campers.   

Premium Delicates Laundry Bags from Inside Smarts  
gets a BIG 2 Dragonflies up!

are available on Amazon,
and be sure to check out their website too!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Dead Trees Are Anything But Dead

I recently learned that dead trees provide vital habitat for more than 1,000 species of wildlife nationwide. The two most common types of dead wood you’ll find in your yard, along a trail or at a park are snags (upright) and logs (on the ground). Despite their name, dead trees are crawling with life. From the basking lizards on top to the beetles underneath, the list of wildlife that depend on logs feels endless. Here’s a sampling of what you may find if you explore a log more closely. What have you observed on, under or near a dead tree?
Summer is a fantastic time to find lizards, turtles and other cold-blooded species basking in the sun. This behavior is primarily a matter of thermoregulation, but may also be a means to regulate Vitamin D. Ants, snails and other insects are often found crawling along a log, while chipmunks and squirrels may use it as a place to rest.
Logs provide great cover for small mammals like foxes, rabbits, bobcats, skunks and raccoons. Bobcats are known to nap inside logs, while foxes may use it as a place to build their den. The inside of a log also provides protection from some predators. The picture below is of a red-tail hawk attempting to get a squirrel, who cleverly took refuge inside a log.

A nature walk rarely feels complete without flipping at least one log. The treasures beneath a log may include beetles, worms, spiders, salamanders, newts or centipedes. What you find on your flipping adventure will depend on the time of year, weather, moisture, and a number of other factors, but it’s all worth it. As you flip, roll the log back toward you, using it as a barrier and giving critters a chance to get away.

This marbled salamander was found by photographer Nicholas Kiriazis after flipping a log in Illinois.

Snakes will often use the space next to a log to rest or look for food. Since logs are crawling with life (prey to a snake), it’s a good place to find a meal. They might also curl up against or inside a log to rest and stay hidden from predators. Egg-laying snake species may deposit their clutches in or under a logs to keep them protected.
Danielle Brigida found this snake next to a log while hiking in West Virginia.

Moss, fungi and lichen are a few special organisms that can be found growing on logs. The simple structure of mosses allow them to grow where other plants may not be able. Dead wood is a place where many species of lichen and fungi thrive as well.

Appreciate Logs
Whether you explore logs along your next nature walk. or decide to keep one in your backyard, logs need some appreciation. They provide both cover and a place for wildlife to raise their young. You never know what you'll find even by just flipping a rock over.

Be sure to get out and enjoy Nature!
