Leather fly swatter

I guess now I’ve seen everything – leather fly swatters. FYI, a fly swat and a fly swatter or used interchangeably according to Wikipedia.

A leather fly swatter is one more diy leather craft that a handyperson can easily make themselves. In fact, there are lots of Youtube videos that will walk you through it (see one example below).

Or skip the diy fly swatter and buy one off of Amazon:

Loop Experience ear plugs

Move over folks, there is a new ear plug in town. The Loop Experience ear plugs feature a loop attached to the ear plug that makes inserting and removing from the ear a breeze.

The super soft silicone material has an almost luxurious, premium feel. Cleaning is as easy as washing with warm water. The Loop removes the muffled sound of using a traditional ear plug, and allows you to clearly hear the sounds around you.

The “loop” part of the Loops range from silicone material, to translucent, to metallic. The metallic can appeal to those who want a more “jewelry” look.

Youtubers promote Loop ear plugs for noise sensitivity for those with ADHD or autism, and anxiety sensory overload. Even though the Loop Experience it touted as the general best overall, if your needs are for “library quiet” then I would go with the Loop Quiet.

Loop Quiet

Ideal for total focus, use for:

  • Sleep
  • Noise Sensitivity
  • Focus
  • Travel

With all Loops, you can engage in conversation without the need to remove the ear plug to talk with someone.

Loop Experience

Filter all sounds evenly, use for:

  • Music & events
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Focus
  • Motorcycling

*Loop Experience Pro has “mutes” that when you remove them, are equal to the Loop Experience, according to Thefumanchuu on Youtube.

Loop Engage

Avoid that “head under water” feeling, use for:

  • Social gatherings
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Parenting
  • Conversation

Thefumanchuu on Youtube has done an excellent job making a series of videos reviewing all of the models of the Loop ear plugs. Spoiler: she prefers the Experience.
