          Candle scents and smells are so personal and what smells good to one is not for another. I like cleaner and less perfumey smells that add a subtle hint of fragrance to a room and this one by Glade is quite nice. It has 2 layers of scented wax(moonlit walk and wandering stream-gotta love the names tho!) that are in a decent sized glass jar. No brained usage,just trim wick,light and enjoy. You get 2 candles so you can place in a couple of locations or save one for another time. Use indoors or out,alone or enhanced with a floral ring or in a lantern and even reuse the empty jar as a mini floral vase or change holder or anything you want.
          Pros: not overly perfumey, 2 layer fragrance, 2 candles per pack, nice jar to reuse

          This is a beautiful approx 8’x10’ machine woven polypropylene low pile area rug with a woven jute backing.There are muted tones of coral,baby blue,tan and hints of orange. There is an overall Mediterranean/Moroccan feel that can add a subtle color palate to any decor. It’s made for indoors but probably can be used on a covered and protected outdoor deck or porch,which is what I intend to use it for(for added protection I spray the front and back with a heavy duty water repellent). Because of the low pile,it makes for easy vacuuming and maintenance and any spills can be easily removed and treated. The color palate will work in almost any setting and add a nice brightness to any decor Read More

          Never used a battery driven lawnmower before but this EGO one really makes it easy and produces results. First impressions are decent battery life,7 cutting levels, can be self propelled but not necessary, 2 blades vs one that cut grass and includes a separate mulching blade,no gas/oil so storage can even be upright. Drawbacks are full battery recharge can take 60+ minutes which is not great if you want to finish your lawn in one go, and not sure how it would do with very tall and heavy grass.

          Never used a battery driven lawnmower before but this EGO one really makes it easy and produces results. First impressions are decent battery life,7 cutting levels, can be self propelled but not necessary, 2 blades vs one that cut grass and includes a separate mulching blade,no gas/oil so storage can even be upright. Drawbacks are full battery recharge can take 60+ minutes which is not great if you want to finish your lawn in one go, and not sure how it would do with very tall and heavy grass. Overall after cutting my lawn today with it for the first run I have to say I am impressed and really look forward to using this full time. I currently use a Honda gas self propelled so comparing the two I feel the gas definitely gives more power but for a very eco friendly battery driven version that has the same if not better features its a hard toss up. The EGO mower is very easy to use by just inserting a fully charged battery ,extending and locking the handles and pushing the safety/start button and go. I have a small typical sized neighborhood yard,front and back=approx 5000sqft and was able to cut both using only 40% of the battery. The mower felt cheap and plastic at first BUT after thinking about it makes sense because lighter materials increase battery life. EGO used metal when necessary,like blades and wheel parts or light but strong aluminum and similar. You get 7 levels of cutting that gives more control on your lawn height. The handle can adjust 3 levels for individual comfort and it even has LED headlights for night mowing?? It’s very lightweight but cut and sliced the grass and even some tough oak leaves and small twigs. This was the first time I did not have to wear ear goggles and could hear surrounding noise somewhat. It’s like the sound of an EGO trimmer but 25% louder which is not bad at all. I have not had a chance to use during the heat and full grass growth of summer but my fall/winter lawn still gave it a good canvas to try and did a great job of cutting. It includes a mulching blade that you can switch out which I plan to do since leaving cut grass is good for lawn. I think this is perfect for small to medium sized yards and offers a gas free,noise reduced and easy storage way to maintain your lawn. I didn’t get any fatigue from pushing it but there is a separate control for self propelled with the blades moving or not ,but it will eat battery life. I used it on a cool 45-50’ day but not sure how summer heat will affect battery. Ego products,imho,work well,do what they say and last a long time. I own and use them all during the year and have cut the gas/oil cord on all my yard tools except the lawnmower and this EGO mower is about to do just that. I plan to only use the EGO for the next year and see how it compares. Your experience may differ but I love my EGO tools and always love to add to my collection when I can and this is definitely the star of the pack. Read Less
          Pros: Light Weight, Self-Propelled, Sturdy, great battery life, 7 levels of cutting, stores easily and compact
          Cons: probably not great for extra large lawns, heavy and wet grass may slow mower, need a good hour for full recharge

          This seems to be a good tape that is slightly thicker than my regular duct tape and supposedly can be used in all types of weather and is waterproof once it’s bonded with your ntended surface. Although it states it works in cold weather,I would warm it up before use by leaving in a heated room to maximize adhesion. I tried it on several surfaces outside and it does stick, but like almost any tape used in the cold,you can peel it off especially on very smooth surfaces. It needs to be rubbed until there is a good bond and then it seems to adhere. I did try getting it wet and the water ran off with no problem but can’t tell how well it would work in extreme wet weather. Overall it’s a good tape Read More

          I really like Tramontina products and this 5qt stainless steel Dutch oven will be the workhorse of the kitchen for almost every cooking task. I like having several different types of materials for pots and pans and stainless works great. You can boil,bake,stew,fry and roast in this pot. Use low to medium-high for cooking because high temps will cause things to burn and stick and smoke. It’s oven safe up to 500’ and will get hot so use mitts to safely handle. Clean up is easy and although you can use a dishwasher it’s best to hand wash and use soap and water and if there are persistent stains or stucks use Barkeepers Friend for all your cleaning because it works really well.
          Pros: 18/10 stainless, use in oven up to 500’, easy cleanup

          Answer: 
          You just squeeze with strong pressure the grooved tabs at the top of the battery in the middle and wiggle the battery loose. It can get stuck sometimes but a good wiggle while squeezing the tabs should do the job. You can also apply a light spray of WD-40 to aid in the removal for future purposes.

          Answer: 
          You can actually cut the light ‘tape’ to any size you need ( This tape light model can be cut every 12 LEDs, or about every 10 in. Some of these intervals have copper pads, and some have silver solder joints visible. Use sharp scissors to only cut in the middle of either of these points.)and if you are only going to need a white light Home Depot also sells an 8ft tape light (Model# LS2835-8F).
           
          The DEWALT DXSTAH025 was designed and engineered to provide a heavy-duty stool fit for both professional and home use. This stool's legs and supports are built using the same powder-coated, industrial grade steel uprights and crossbeams as our 4 ft. storage rack. The comfortable foam-padded seat sits atop a 360 swiveling pneumatic piston allowing free and easy rotation when seated and with 4.75 in. of height adjustment can be set at any height from its lowest of 24 in. to a maximum of 28 in. so you can set it to what best suits you. The textured vinyl seat cover resists rips and tears. A bracket-secured industrial wire grid lower shelf provides an ideal place to store necessary tools and supplies. Featuring an all steel frame construction this stool can easily hold up to 300 pounds without showing any signs of weakening or metal fatigue. The bolt-secured frame comes pre-assembled with the 360 swivel casters installed leaving only the seat and pneumatic adjustment cylinder to be attached before the stool is ready for use. If desired, the casters can be removed and to protect floors from the steel frame the stool includes with a set of the same rugged, glass-filled nylon feet as the storage racks along with a set of levelling shims.
