Thumbs up Swabbie results (pic)

I noticed a little buildup on my Swabbie tonight, but the neck was still nice and clean. Perhaps I'm skimming a tad dry.

It's a bit more than a timer, but the Apex is nice.

On more basic side, any digital timer should work. I'd go with digital simply to allow a smaller on-window, more frequently.
