AcuLife Ear Wax Removal Syringe by Acu-Life
4.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 13 Mar 2014
I think most hearing aid wearers, like myself, suffer from wax build-up. Pushing in earpiece every day tends to push wax back into the ear canal and bypasses the ear's natural cleaning action.

The AcuLife Wax Removal Syringe that I bought recently did the job as well, if not better than the nurse at my local surgery - without the need to book an appointment etc. I agree with all the other reviews on its ease of use and efficacy. But . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most, 16 Jan 2014
The Sentinel Key Safe was bought for a village hall to replace another one that had four rotating number wheels, as some people had difficulty seeing and setting the fiddly little numbers. The Sentinel certainly solves that problem as the numbers are clear and the push buttons very simple to operate. Once the correct code is entered, the catch is operated with minimum force and front door drops down to give access to the inside. The Sentinel is as robust as any I have seen and more robust that some.

Now for the negatives. The setting tool, used to set up the access code, is a flimsy bit of perspex which is next to useless. Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver instead. Why… Read more
