Fiskars Recycled 12-Inch Bypass Trimmer Paper Cutter Review

Fiskars Recycled 12-Inch Bypass Trimmer Paper Cutter Review

I review the Fiskar 12″ paper cutter made completely from recycled materials. The best qualities of this cutter are its “green” nature and sharp blade. Other flaws like a lightweight base, iffy safety, and crooked guide lines all add up to a cutter you should pass on.

I review the Crest Pro-Health Multi-Protection Alcohol Free Mouth Wash, and provide photos on how the product stained my teeth. I’ve been able to remove some of the stains with a dentist’s tool, but it wasn’t complete and it wasn’t easy.
