Every now and then a product comes to my attention and I am so very, very grateful that it did. I had the chance to road test the ShooAway product that will be available at ALDI as a special buy from Saturday the 31st of December 2016.
This product showed up 2 days before my family were set to go camping and the timing could not have been better. For those of you who camp in summer, in Australia you will know how annoying flies can be. You are pretty much living outside 24/7 doing all of your cooking, meal prep and eating and flies are everywhere.
Flies drive me mental … I really, really hate flies and find them extremely annoying. The other thing I really hate is spraying toxic chemicals on myself or near food I am just about to feed my children in an attempt to get rid of annoying flies.
Introducing the ShooAway my new best friend. The ShooAway is an awesome fly repelling invention which is Aussie designed and owned woohoo. Essentially it is a cone shaped product that you place on a table you are wanting to keep flies away from.
It has 2 soft blades that are safe for children to touch which is great. My kids quite liked the ShooAway and gave it a run for its money in terms of stopping it and starting it and stopping it and starting it and it seemed to cope with the children quite well.
The 2 soft blades have reflective dots on them which scare the flies away and create a 1.5m diameter of fly free coverage which is great. Let’s say you had a standard outdoor BBQ table that sits around 6-8 people you would need 2 units to give you total fly free coverage.
The ShooAways are powered by 2 AA batteries and a pair of Durracell will give you a minimum of 32 hours of fly free entertaining which would cover most people for an entire summer.
This product was absolutely fantastic while we were camping and ensured that every meal was fly free which was a nice alternative from our previous fly infested years of camping.
We actually went to my Aunty’s house for an early Christmas lunch and she had her own set out on the table keeping all of those pesky flies away which was a funny coincidence. She said she had them for years and loved them.
The thing I love most about them is the fact that they repel flies without having to spray harmful bug sprays and pesticides near my kids or around the food we are just about to eat.
The ShooAway really is a fabulous idea and worth checking out if you are looking for a non toxic and child safe fly free option. It is great for entertaining, BBQ, seafood lunch platter, children’s parties, cooling a cake, kids eating area, crows, magpies, sea gulls off your fish n chips etc, dirty dishes, preparing food, camping and the list goes on. They also make a great gift idea for people you have no idea what to get.
