I use a range of different cleaning products in my kitchen, I never stick to one product and like to try something new or whatever is on offer. One thing I like to keep in my kitchen is antibacterial wipes, I find these extremely handy for cleaning a range of things and with my 18 month old Son in the house things can get messy so having wipes to hand is very useful. I recently tried some wipes that I had never tried before, Flash Strong Weave Antibacterial Wipes, I have tried other Flash products in the past and generally have been pleased with them so I was hoping that these would be just as good. The Flash Strong Weave Antibacterial Wipes are basically large white rectangle shaped wipes, the material they are made from is as the name suggests strong and you cannot easily pull them apart, I also noticed that this material felt quite soft meaning they would be gentle on various surfaces. The wipes are covered in a Flash Antibacterial cleaning product which is designed to kill 99.9% of bacteria, the wipes have a clean fresh smell to them, which isn't too strong or overpowering and does not leave a taste behind if food is later prepared on the surface cleaned with the wipes. The wipes when removed from the packet are quite wet so each wipe has plenty of cleaning product on it to clean the surface required , I hate cleansing wipes that are too dry as you end up using the wipes twice as quick, however this is not the case with these wipes, one wipe cleans quite a large area, obviously this depends on how dirty the area is. Other than the fact that the Flash Wipes are Antibacterial the other main factor about them is the fact that they are strong weave, this was something I was hoping was going to turn out to be true, wipes that fall apart whilst you are using them are such a waste of money and you end up using them up quickly. The Flash Strong Weave Wipes definitely live up to their name, they were of a good thickness and I had no problems with them falling apart, even when I had to scrub at a particularly tough mark/ stain, they still stayed in one piece and developed no holes at all. The Flash Strong Weave Antibacterial Wipes come in a pack of 60 wipes, I purchased mine from my local Tesco, however they are also available in other supermarkets such as Waitrose. When I bought mine they were on offer for just over £1.00, however when full price they are sold for £2.30 in Tesco, this is pretty standard, however the price can vary a little depending on where you buy them from. In comparison to other similar products the price of these wipes is standard when full price. The Flash Strong Weave Antibacterial Wipes can be used on a range of surfaces, I use mine on all areas in the kitchen including the sink, cooker, work surfaces and cupboard doors, they work extremely well and remove any marks and food that has splashed onto the surfaces when cooking, they easily cut through grease and remove marks without too much scrubbing. I also use the wipes on my Sons highchair tray and also his little table and chair he now eats his meals at. The wipes are also good for cleaning toys as they easily remove any dirt and kill any germs quickly and safely. Since buying the Flash Strong Weave Antibacterial Wipes I have been extremely pleased with them, basically they do what they say they will, they quickly, easily and safely clean a range of surfaces around the home, I can happily use them around both my Son and my cats without worrying that they will come to any harm from the cleaning product. The wipes live up to their promise of being strong and allow me to clean without the wipes falling apart in my hands. They leave surfaces smelling clean and fresh without being over the top. I would say that these wipes are fairly priced and are definitely worth the money. I would highly recommend these wipes to anyone as a quick and convenient way to clean various surfaces in your house. They are definitely a product that I will purchase again in the future.
We have been using Flash Antibacterial Wipes for a long time now. We try others from time to time, but always seem to revert back to these again for some reason. They kill up to 99% of germs and we use them all around the home, from the bathroom to the kitchen to the conservatory. They are very useful for a wide range of purposes and come in very handy. We pay just under £2 for a pack of 60 wipes. You have to remove the seal on the front before removing a wipe and remember to replace it properly afterwards, otherwise they do have a tendency to dry out. They are used on the kitchen work surfaces, the sinks the taps, the conservatory window sills where we get a lot of spider droppings and we also use them on the loo and the bathroom sink and taps. They never seem to leave any residue or marks behind and we know they are killing germs as they go so we always feel confident that the house is a little bit cleaner once we have had a wipe over with these. Perhaps the only downside of these wipes is that the back of the pack states that it is best not to flush them down the toilet. I have actually flushed them on a coupe of occasions though and have found that they do disappear without causing any problems to the plumbing. They are large wipes and very strong and don't fray or tear as you wipe over surfaces with them. They also have a nice smell to them. They smell fresh and natural and I thought they might have had an aroma of bleach about them, but actually they don't. Overall, a practical and handy little wipe from a reputable company. Not badly priced and they do a great job, so highly recommended.
I decided to try Flash Anti bacterial Wipes because I trust the Flash name and was intrigued and hopeful that they would make cleaning a little easier around the house. These wipes can be used in the bathroom and the kitchen and basically on most surfaces within the house such as tiles, plastic, worktops, sinks and taps. They kill 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria, so you can feel confident that surfaces are clean when you are finished wiping them. To use these wipes you simply take one out of the packet, then wipe the dirt or grime away from the surface that you need to clean, then you simply throw away the wipe (it is advised that you do not flush them down the toilet). It is very important that you reseal the packet when you are finished with these wipes as if you do not, they can dry out and this leaves them a bit useless. These wipes are quite thick and do not break up easily when you are wiping difficult stains or dirt off different surfaces. They stay together quite well which makes it much easier to them, I haven't had one break on me yet. I found that these wipes are very useful around the house and they do make cleaning a little easier around the house as instead of getting a cloth and then having to wash it, I can simply do my cleaning and wipe around and then throw these wipes out. The results from these wipes are also really good, they do not leave behind a scum or any marks and of course it is even better that they kill 99.9% of bacteria. I am really pleased with these wipes and think that I will buy them again. These wipes smell lovely and fresh, but not to strong and are perfect for using around the house, especially kitchen and bathroom areas. You can buy Flash Anti bacterial Wipes in most supermarkets, I picked mine up in Asda for £1.98, and this bought me a packet of 60, which lasted me quite a while around the house. I think that these wipes are better value than I had anticipated and they were a great buy in my opinion. Overall I would definitely recommend these wipes to anyone who wants to make cleaning around their house a little easier as there is no need for liquids and clothes which makes extra washing, you simple use these wipes and then throw them out. Overall I would give these wipes 5 out of 5 stars. *also on ciao under lorrainek90
Cleaning up a kitchen is one of those things which is very important and really can't be underestimated as it is when food is not just stored but also prepared and so ensuring that it is as germ and bacteria free as possible is something I always work hard to ensure so when I recently came across Flash antibacterial wipes I felt sure these could help with this but was I right? Pros: Flash is a well known and long trusted brand (many remember the adverts) and thanks to this you feel a great deal of confidence in the products you purchase from them which for me is a great thing to feel as soon as I start using a product. The wipes are very strong (the newest version are strong weave which ensures they offer the least chance of breaking apart as you clean) and robust so that even if you are scrubbing a little bit harder (for me this is in the microwave) then you can feel confidence that these are not going to simply break apart in your hands. Flash antibacterial cleaning wipes kill 99.9% of bacteria and so these are exceptionally stong with their cleaning power but thankfully this does not mean they are anything other than gentle on your hands and surfaces. The wipes are great value for money and normally cost around £2.50 to £3.00 per pack of 90 (you can regularly find these on deals for £1 a pack) of the strong weave wipes. The cost when broken down for the normal price range means that these wipes cost around about 3p each which is excellent value for a product that will quickly become an essential part of your cleaning regime. Once you have used the wipes you simply drop them in the bin which means that you are ensuring the used cleaning implements are not sitting and potentially putting the germs and bacteria back in the air through sitting around after use. For me this is one of the biggest positives of all as no matter where you use these wipes you know that once used they are leaving my flat with the germs and bacteria on them rather than it remaining in my flat on some cloth. See the dirt come off as you clean. These wipes are white and so as you clean you can see the dirt coming up on to them which allows for you to be sure that things are as clean as they can be by simply wiping over with a wipe once you have cleaned and feel sure you are done...if it comes up as clean then you know your surfaces are too. The packaging for these wipes is resealable which means that the wipes will not dry out and so will keep their excellent cleaning power for longer which means in turn that a pack can last for ages without you needing to bin it due to ruined wipes. Negatives: None Overall I have been very impressed with just how clean these wipes do make my flat (with my help obviously) and the fact that I can see them taking up the dirt as I throw away the used wipes means that I have been able to ensure that my flat is as clean as it can be. The wipes are strong enough that I can clean my microwave or cooker top without needing to worry that they will fall apart in my hands and thanks to the value for money I have with these I don't mind needing to use a few to ensure that I am happy everything is clean. I highly recommend these to everyone but especially if you have younger children or are a childminder as these will enable you to quickly clean up little food spills and know that the area is truly clean with the minimal effort and once you are done just bin the wipe.
I recently managed to sort out everything in the cupboard underneath my kitchen sink whilst I was doing a deep clean. Hidden away right at the back was a pack of these Flash Antibacterial Wipes unopened, they didn't stay unopened for long. The wipes come in a green packet containing 60 wipes. The pull back tab which reveals the wipes is re-sealable so that the wipes that aren't being used stay fresh and moist. With some re-sealable packets the seals don't always stick until the end of the packet, but the seal on these Flash wipes is fantastic and stays sticky until the packet is empty. The Antibacterial wipes are around 20cm x 12cm so quite large. I find them very moist, not so moist that if you ring them they start dripping, but not dry in the slightest. The wipes don't have an overpowering cleaning product scent, but it is still there, along with a sort of citrus smell. Flash claims that they kill 99% of bacteria. Using the wipes is quite simple, just wipe! I mainly used these in my kitchen, doing various day to day cleaning jobs, such as wiping the kitchen worktops, cupboard doors and inside, wiping the sink and my hob. One task which I didn't think they would be up to the job is the inside of my microwave, I often forget the cover beans and tomato based sauces, so of course it gets splattered everywhere, but I was wrong, they handled the tough dirt easily. I used these in my bathroom to clean the bath and shower, around the tiles, sink, and the loo. Again, they handled each job with ease. After using the whole pack, I never once found a wipe that had tearing or ripped even though I used them to scrub some stains, such as the ones inside my microwave. One wipe was more than adequate. These Flash Antibacterial Wipes can be found in most supermarkets for around the £2 mark. But can usually be found on offer if you shop around. I'm pleased I found these hiding in the back of my cleaning cupboard, they made cleaning quick and easy, and are of fantastic quality. However, I personally find them too expensive to be any benefit to me, I'd rather take some time and use traditional spray and cloths to save a few pennies so I haven't purchased them since.
I always keep a packet of cleaning wipes in the house, as although I find it's much cheaper to buy a bottle of all purpose cleaner and a cloth, there are some times when wipes are the convenient (OK, lazy) option. My latest pack of wipes are the Flash strongweave wipes, purchased as they were on special offer - no other reason than that. The wipes come in two different varieties, lemon or anti-bacterial...I bought anti-bacterial. The wipes are packaged in a green plastic packet, similar to that of baby wipes, and the front states that they will kill 99.9% of bacteria. They are suitable for all hard washable surfaces (although they do recommend testing on an inconspicuous area first) and not suitable for carpets, fabric or upholstery (although I guess that's common sense). You get 60 wipes in a pack...well at least that's what Flash say on the front of the pack. What you actually get is 30 wipes with a perforation down the middle, so you can, if you wish, tear them in half to make 60. The problem, I find, is that when halved the wipe is too small to be of any use, except on really, really small jobs and so for me, I certainly only get 30, not 60 as stated. The wipes are white in colour and look like a thick baby wipe. They have a textured surface, and a slightly chemical scent to them. They are thick, and I can see why they're called strongweave as they are very durable and I've not had one tear on me yet. I find the wipes are best for small jobs around the house, and not everyday cleaning, as I would simply go through too many packs at a time. I find them fantastic for wiping down the front of white goods such as the washing machine and fridge as they leave a streak free finish, and aren't so wet that I worry water will get into my appliances. I have used them to wipe down my dining table, which has a sort of laminated wood top, and I have glass tablemats and coasters, which come up well with a wipe over with these, and again no streaks. In fact, the only time I have used these on really tough stains would be when trying to remove dried on food from my tablemats and I find these lift stains with minimal effort. When I had work done on my flat recently I used these to clean some of my possessions which the builders hadn't bothered to cover over, and found that because they're damp, they are effective at lifting dust too. The wipes leave a slight scent behind after cleaning, I can't quite put my finger on what the scent is, but whilst it has a very slight chemical tone to it, I find it completely inoffensive. I do find the wipes slightly drying to the hands, so I tend to use gloves whenever possible. These wipes usually cost £2.02 for a pack from ASDA, but are currently on special offer for £1. Whilst I'd be happy to pay £1 for them, I don't think I would pay the full price, as whilst these are good wipes, I feel there are other brands (such as the Wilkinson's own brand wipes) which do just the same job and cost much less. Overall, I am quite happy with these wipes. They are effective on most surfaces, don't leave any streaks, and as a bonus they are killing germs too. The only real downside is that they're drying to the hands and I feel at full price they're too expensive. *Also posted on Ciao under my username pink_champagne
Ok, I admit, these were a freebie! There was a very lovely Flash man giving out packs of ten wipes to trial in Sainsburys, I wouldn't buy them normally. I'm normally a soap and water girl for cleaning surfaces, I don't buy wipes and my house doesn't suffer for it :) However, let's face it, I'm not going to turn down a freebie! So I tried them first wiping down my dining table following a very fun (and messy) fajita night. They worked and did the job they were meant to. The table was clean and not excessively greasy. It smelt very nice and fresh. It took me two wipes to clean my four-seater dining table and I was impressed with the job. However, I wasn't convinced it was a job that couldn't be done with good old soap and water! I must admit, I assumed these were going to be ridiculously expensive but I checked out the price of these at my local haunt, Tesco, and they worked out at about 3p per wipe, which I don't think is too bad. However, I won't be buying these myself as I'm just not convinced they've got a place in my house.
When it comes to cleaning the house, I always make sure that I buy good quality brands which is why I pay a little bit more. I will always test something once and with dust and spillages occurring always it is good to have household wipes in. I bought these Flash wipes as I hadn't seen them before but they are a brand that I have used numerous times in the past so I have some kind of loyalty with them. Also the fact they aim to kill 99.9% of bacteria made me more inclined to try them. PACKAGING The front of the packet is very clinical looking; it is a fluorescent green and is of course eye catching on the shelf. It makes a few promises on the front and also seems to look like it will do as it says. It also has the well known flash logo and promises up to 60 wipes which really isn't bad value for money at all. They do seem a bold packet and I think they definitely caught my eye compared to the competition. WARNING As all cleaning products do, it does come with health warnings. These wipes should be kept away from children, keep these away from the eyes and if they do get near then rinse well with water. Also rinse and dry your hands after usage. Lastly, do not use these for personal hygiene they are for cleaning only. DIRECTIONS OF USE To use these wipes, is very straightforward. They come in this very easy sealed pack which keeps the wipes moist. You just need to open the pack and pull the lid back and reseal the label once this is done to retain moisture for other wipes. Wipe all surfaces to remove dirt; there is also no need to rinse with these wipes. You do not need to wipe the surfaces dry as the surface will dry itself with air unless there is a food spillage. Leave the surface for 5 minutes to let the wipe take action and then it should be clean. These wipes are suitable for hard, washable surfaces and cannot be used on carpet, upholstery or fabric. I have found these to be a joy to use; they are so easy to get to work with. It is literally a case of wiping over bathroom and kitchen tops or furniture and then it will remove all dirt or dust. I have always had all stains remove and a nice clean surface left behind. It has a nice tangy lemon smell which also makes them appealing leaving all rooms smelling very fresh after cleaning. COST If you are interested in these wipes then they are available from most places, try Home Bargains or places like Poundland first. If you want to go to Asda these are currently priced at £2.02 or are on the 3 for £2 offer which is a great bargain if you want to stock up on these. INGREDIENTS 5% Amphoteric Surfactants, Disinfectants, Perfume, Geraniol. If you want a bit more detail about the brand you can go to the P&G website at http://www.uk.pg.com/products/products/flash.html which gives more information but not a lot on specific products.
I cannot claim to be a domestic goddess not by any stretch of the imagination although I like a clean house mine is never tidy I prefer to spend time with my daughters and so I often set out to get on with the house work and then it's the perfect day for riding bikes or my daughter has a new reading book and so the housework gets sidelined! I am always therefore on the lookout for products that make life easier and free up time I purchased these wipes on offer at £ 1.00 and so a complete bargain these wipes are antibacterial and so I can be assured that they are killing any nasty bacteria and not just smelling lovely! I have a relatively small kitchen and found that two of these wipes were sufficient to get the kitchen spick and span I decided to have a gleaming kitchen and so used one of these to clean my cupboard doors which have grooves in them and that makes cleaning them a wet messy task with the wipes it was far easier and didn't end up with a puddle on the floor! Whilst these are not an economical product in comparison to the flash liquid they do make cleaning a less time consuming business which can only be good I would like to state these are normally around £2 but even at this price I like to have a packet to hand as they are also good for mopping spills up on the floor. Summary A great product to have strong enough to wipe spills from the floor, quick and easy to use one goes a long way but still cheaper to buy the liquid and clean the proper way! I recommend these as a standby product for emergency use or just for quick cleans.
It is obvious to everyone that using an antibacterial spray and a cloth is much less expensive than using these Flash antibacterial wipes but it is much easier to use the wipes and as a lazy person easy is good for me. These cost £2 for a pack of 60 but to me they are an absolute god send and worth every penny, when my grandkids are round I would need to have the spray bottle and a cloth with me everywhere I go and be constantly cleaning and rinsing out the cloth and all that but with these wipes, the kids make a mess, I wipe it bin the wipe and jobs done. The wipes have a decent and not too strong fragrance, they can be used on pretty much everything, I use them on tiles and kitchen surfaces, on the taps and sinks, I use them on wooden and plastic surfaces and have even used them for spills on my tiles or even laminated floors. They do not leave any streaks and they clean very thoroughly and of course being antibacterial they deal with nasty germs too so they come highly recommended by me to you!
I use these wipes for my kitchen. When I got them they were on offer at £1.00 and I think they usuaally retail between £1.50 and £2.00. You get 60 wipes in a pack. I use these as I have a black and white mischievous cat, who likes to get on the kitchen counter and see what i'm doing, so I have to make sure the work tops have some sort of protection from him! He also likes mud and anything that will make him and his white bits as dirty as possible! He even managed to find some engine oil to get on his paws once! Anyway these wipes are great. They come in a bright green packet, so they are very easy to find in the darkness that is the cupboard under the sink, and they have a resealable flap on the top, which does actually reseal, unlike cheaper wipes. Sometimes it's hard to just get one out of the packet, but you can get them back in eaasy enough i you get too many out. The wipes are square in shape and they are quite wet with cleaning product, which is great for quickly wiping down the kitchen sides, they also have a bit of a texture to them so if you have marks or stuff that is a bit stuck on you can just give it a bit of a scrub with these. They are a very strong wipe, I have never ripped one yet. They don't smell particularly strong, they do have a scent but its like a fruity clean smell, it's hard to describe, but the don't smell like bleach like a few wipes I have tried. I have found these wipes clean items the easiest, and they really do get the dirt off stuff, I have used them on all sorts, especially things like skirting boards, they are great at getting the dust off. I would imagine if you had small children and were a bit more worried about dirt and germs these would be great for peace of mind, I generally use them for cleaning, but it is good to know that the anti-bacterial agent is there, especially for surfaces the cat has been on. These are a really good wipe, and I would really recommend them, even if they aen't on offer, but they are on offer quite a lot.
Flash Antibacterial Wipes This product is individual wipes impregnated with a cleaning solution which allows you to wipe surfaces etc without the need for a seperate cleaning product. All you need to do is to take a wipe out of the pack, use it and then bin it. They come in a plastic packet and the wipes pull out of a slit in the top, the packet colours vary according to the scent that you buy. Yes these are designed for convenience but is that really such a bad thing? Unless you love cleaning and want to prolong the task as long as possible, then you are probably like me and see it as a necessary evil that should be whizzed through, allowing you more time for all the fun things in life! If this is the case, then these wipes are for you. A 120g pack costs around £1.80 and is available from most local supermarkets, you can often pick these up in Poundland too, saving yourself quite a bit. I buy these all the time, they are antibacterial and whatever variety I have bought, they all smell fresh and leave surfaces smelling clean and hygienic. They are also quite strong, so even if you are scrubbing at a mark, they don't disintegrate in your hands and fall apart. I use these in the bathroom, kitchen, floors and most surfaces (check the packet to be sure of where you can use them) and love the convenience. In addition to being an essential part of my cleaning regime, they are also really useful for spills and splashes, and dirty paw prints on the hall floor. If you have sensitive skin then it may be sensible to use gloves while using these, as with all cleaning products. I have quite sensitive skin and find that products can be really drying, so always keep a pair of trusty marigolds for such occasions. I will definitely continue to buy these, I like the fact that any mess can be quickly wiped, or they can be used to do a proper clean. I know that my surfaces are as clean as they can be because of the antibacterial properties and they smell fresh too. Try to buy them in Poundland if you can though!
Although I'm a generally messy person, when I do clean, I opt for the thorough wipe-all-surfaces method. For that reason, I have a handy stash of wipes at the ready for all manner of occasions. I like the wipes to be antibacterial - and although bacteria in moderation is good for you - it's nice to have a little peace of mind when it comes to destroying germs, especially being a pet owner... actually make that 'an owner of a cat who will randomly vomit on the floor when you're least expecting it'. Costing £2 for the 60 pack, Flash Antibacterial wipes are available from the majority of supermarkets throughout the country. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, then the Tesco version works out as less expensive, with the 120 pack available for £1.80. Housed in a light green re-sealable packet to stop them from drying out, the moist little cleaners don't claim to kill a certain percentage of bacteria as the Tesco ones do - but they do give the random statistic of "Killing 100% 'more' dirt than the next bestselling wipe". After dusting, I use the wipes on a variety of surfaces including wood, painted surfaces, and metal. They even work well on my wooden flooring without leaving streaky marks, which is handy, as it means I don't have to splash out on the more expensive floor wipes. The smell is quite hard to place, but it's certainly clinical, albeit a little chemically. Sometimes when I use cheaper wipes, they rip fairly easily - but this isn't a problem with the Flash brand. Each wipe is made from the 'Strongweave' material which is very tough, and if rinsed under the tap, can be re-used. In conclusion, I would recommend Flash Antibacterial Wipes as hardwearing and efficient cleaning aids. That said, the cheaper Tesco Antibacterial Wipes seem to be very similar in quality, and for that reason, I would perhaps recommend going with the less expensive ones, especially in these credit crunching times.
It was my turn to clean the kitchen this week and because I like to make it as quick and easy as possible I brought some of these Flash wipes. I got them in the pound shop and think they did a brill job. The smell of them is proper clean and fresh and it freshened up the whole room as I was cleaning. They were as good as any of the liquid Flash products and with a bit of rubbing I was able to clean up the dusty areas, greasy marks and I even cleaned the top of the cooker with a couple. The wipes themselves are strong enough to cope with a bit of scrubbing and they were effective on every mess or stain apart from a blackcurrent stain on one of the worksurfaces and I had to use bleach on that. One area in particular I was worried they'd be no good was under the George Foreman because the worksurface gets greasy and manky under there but it was no problem at all and the wipes cut through the mess. There is just enough liquid on the wipes in my opinion and they weren't dripping wet or too dry. Once you've opened the packet you'll see that the resealing window isn't very good but even if you leave the wipes open to the air a bit they don't dry out and stay moist. I think ours were left for about 3 days and after that time they were still as good as new and did their job just as well. The way the wipes are packaged is clever. You get 30 wipes but each one is perforated down the middle so you can get 60 smaller ones out of the pack if you're only doing small jobs. Because I was doing the kitchen I used them as the big sized wipes and they were just right for the job. I think they made the worksurfaces nice and shiny and the fresh just-cleaned smell lasts for ages in the kitchen.
I used to use antibacterial wipes for cleaning everything rather than a good old fashioned cloth. I don't so much now - but more on that later. Flash Anibacterial wipes are packaged in a green plastic wrapper and are easily dispensed by simply gently tugging on one wipe. The 60 wipes are in fact much smaller wipes perforated in twos making this equal to 30 larger wipes. I find that using the smaller wipes is not enough and I always end up using two together. This was becoming an expensive habit and even stocking up on the wipes when they were on BOGOF (at £1.99) or on offer at £1 a pack, I was still spending a small fortune on wipes for various uses. Although they are very quick, easy and convenient to use I noe stick to useing them just on Jake's highchair at the end of the day to give a good clean. Now each pack is lasting me a month and this is much more reasonable than 4 or 5 packs a month. The wipes have a very clean but chemical fragrance which I can always smell aftwards for a littl while, it does linger, but it is not unpleasant. They are ideal for many cleaning tasks and areas usch as kitchen and bathroom. I have also used them to clean grubby lightswitches and door handles and they do this well. They are great and work well at cleaning even dried on mess but just do not use them to excess - remember what you did before Flash wipes were invented.....
