5.0 out of 5 stars Fill bowl with boiling water and allow to cool for 30 seconds, 26 Nov. 2013
I didn't buy this shield from Amazon, but from a local shop. I am writing a review because the fitting instructions on the pack for this gum shield are wrong. It tells you to bring water to boil, remove from heat then immediately place shield into the water for 12 seconds, then place it straight in your mouth and mould. I did as instructed. On placing the shield in the water it shrank and started to deform and split. It was far too hot on taking it out of the water to put in my mouth and was completely deformed and hard in places. I threw it in the bin.

I bought another one, but this time followed the instructions for fitting that I had from a previous manufacturer's shield, which worked perfectly, and I précis it here.

1. Fill bowl with boiling water and allow to cool for 30 seconds.
2. Place gum shield in water for 40 seconds.
3. Remove from water.
4. Allow shield to cool to comfortable level then place around upper teeth, bite down firmly while sucking strongly and use your fingers to press edges of shield into your teeth and gums. Do this for 30 seconds.
5. Remove shield and cool under cold running water for 1 minute.
6. Replace shield in mouth to test for fit and retention.

If you want to see full instructions go to [...] and look up fitting instructions.

This gum shield is very good and easy to wear, and I would recommend it, but NOT the instructions.

These are what school teacher recommended. They don't leak, so good from that point of view. I purchased these from Amazon because locally they are almost £6. I rated them 3 stars because they are expensive for what they are.

Good product. I have it sat on my bookshelf. It can be hung on wall or freestanding. For peace of mind if you have any gas appliances or use a multi fuel stove/open fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pifco Ash Vacuum, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a vac specifically for ash. This vac does the job well, but could have done with a flat nozzle tool to go with the short round cylinder tool, for a few tight places in the stove box. The high pitched very loud noise of the motor left my ears ringing, so I now wear ear protectors when using it! The vac is basically a small metal container, no wheels, with the motor with HEPA filter in the 'lid'. Not sure why it costs so much money, even at the discounted price. Good thing is that spare filter and parts are easily purchased when needed and if you register the vac when you get it, the guarantee is extended for a further 2 years, to make it 3 years. Filter is easily removed for cleaning (you can wash it, NOT in a washing machine!)

2nd November 2013: Update since my first review. Although the filter is easy to remove and tap most of the ash particles from it, it is very messy. I have only done this in the garden and it blows everywhere. You have to clean the filter this way each time you use it as it gets clogged up after one use. The ash and lumps of spent coal get changed into a very fine dust when sucked into Hoover.

21st November 2013: another update. I got fed up cleaning the filter everyday, so now I rake the fire as much as I can, without making a dust cloud, then empty the ash pan in the garden like I used to and only use the vacuum to get up the ash that I would normally have brushed up in the past. This way there is no ash dust flying around the room and I only have to clean the filter when the suction decreases, then I know it needs cleaning and empty the vac bin.

Bought this for my granddaughter about 3 years ago. It started playing up late 2012 so is used as a second phone now. A very good phone.

Very good value for money. Stick well. Quite thick. Need replacing after a couple of years as go flat. Can easily Hoover fluff off them, as they do attract it.

These are useful for chunky and odd sizes of furniture feet. Good value. Quite thick. Wear well, but like all felt they attract dust, which is easily removed with a Hoover. They stick well.
