          I have always been interested in owning a food dehydrator. I just never realized how much effort went into the process of drying out food. My first attempt was to prepare apples and plums according to the directions. Then I realized that there no specific instructions for preparing plums in the dehydrator. I then noticed that several fruits and vegetables were not listed in the manual. Nor were meats included in the how-to manual. So, if you buy one, you will need to locate a recipe book or find a website online that can guide you on ways to use your new dehydrator.

          I was looking for a shower rod that would be long enough (80") and would be stylish and easy to install. This one is perfect. It has a beautiful finish that will go with any chrome or brushes nickel plated finishes that exist in your bathroom. It extends a full 86 inches! And looks great. The zinc that it is made of is extremely rust resistant and should last for several years. Plus, it has a one year warranty!

          Definitely recommend this product! It was so easy to install, and it's dimmable. This one is made for the 4" can lights, so make sure you don't have larger (5 or 6") cans before buying. There are three dimmable settings, so its like having a three-way bulb, and the daylight is DAYLIGHT BRIGHT! I removed the old trim ring and bulb, screw in the base, connected the wires with a click, then pushed it in the hole and turned on the light. Wow! That was so easy!
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Eco-Friendly, Fast / Speed, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright

          I have used several different types of odor eliminators over the years. I have a septic pump in my basement to help with expelling plumbing from washer, shower and toilet in the walk out basement and sometimes there is a smell that stands out. I just installed this product and hope it is effective. It smells nice, but doesn't seem like it is strong enough to "knock-out" the smell, but I will give it a chance. I should know more after a week. There are so many products out there to "cover-up" odor that you can try them all and find something to like, or hate, about each. I like the smell of this, I wish it had a way to allow it to release the scent more slowly, or quickly, as needed.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, smells good

          Had been looking for a rectangular bath mat to go with my mosaic tiled shower and saw this one and decided to give it a try. It is very cushion-y. The suction cups are abundant, so it will almost always find a way to stick and stay in place. It is bright white in color. I hope it stays that way over time. It is a good size as my shower is about 3 ft wide by 6 ft deep. Love the way it feels under foot. Would definitely buy this again.

          can I use it on a concrete overlay

          August 4, 2019
          I had a mason put a concrete overlay on my concrete walkway and had it stamped. Can I put the granite grip directly on top of the overlay. Had planned to stain but am now considering other options. thanks.

          Answer: 
          I see no reason why this product will not adhere to your concrete overlay. But keep in mind, this product probably has guidelines about painting it on raw concrete Each gallon covers much less area than you will expect because of the quality of the surface. And new concrete will suck it up!

          Sounds like a good idea. These are rated for "damp" locations, so they might work under the eave/porch of a house, but will probably not last as long in extreme weather conditions
