          Combining simple elegance with sleek sophistication, the Rollins convertible semi-flush mount/pendant brings industrial flair to your decor. In the pendant design, filament bulbs dangle delicately inside a square, black cage; while the semi-flush mount aesthetic offers seamless style to suit any space. This fixture is the perfect addition to your living room or bedroom in order to add bold yet minimal look.

          We have been updating our light fixtures to a more modern look. This fixture is great. It is a sleek black basic design yet also can go with an industrial design. The light bulbs are edison bulbs so let off a soft glow that is not super bright. We got this for our entray way. The canopy cover is not super sturdy so be careful putting that up to prevent bending. The box frame of the light fixture is very sturdy. Once it's in place though looks great. I like the fact that it can be adjustable so can work on different heights of ceiling. It comes with one 3" post and 3 additional 12' posts so you just figure out how far you want to hang the light and add the correct posts. I also like that Read More

          I was looking for a small hose for my back deck where I keep my dogs. I am lazy about winding up the hose and have been trying the expandable hoses. They form leaks quickly. This spiral hose takes up little space and I don't have to wind it up after each use. The hose is sturdier and seems like it can withstand my dogs running over it. The head or nozzle is mostly plastic. Not super sturdy so don't know how long it will hold up but works well right now. It has adjustable spray patterns and it also has a thumb control that adjusts the power of the spray simply. It attached well on my faucet with no leaks.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality
          Cons: plastic nozzle

          So far this vacuum cleaner has worked well for us. I like the portable stand. You can either hand it on the wall, stand it up or use it in the compact size. With these options it can be stored anywhere. The vacuum itself is not very loud when it is running. It turns on and off easily with a single button pushed with your thumb. It has two speeds. There are several attachments with a separate head for hard floors and carpet. I like that because the hard floor head is a soft washable head that picks up dust along with the heavier dirt. The wand is adjustable for the height can be set to what is comfortable. My grandson loves to help vacuum and fits him too and he is only 5. Also takes up less Read More

It also adjusts simply to a handheld vacuum. The filters are washable. About the only complaints I have is there is not enough storage for all the attachments on the stand and there is not a light on the head. I liked that option on my old stick vac. There is also an added finger separator on the handle. Not necessary and not really sure of it's purpose. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Empty Filter, Easy to Use, Good Size & Lightweight, Nice Design
          Cons: no light, not storage for all attachments

          Tried this degreaser product on bearing stack and seamer roller machine parts off a beer canning line. This was essentially caked with thick bearing lube and old beer. I took it all apart and sprayed everything down. I let it sit and soak for a little bit. I had to do some light scrubbing. Definitely seemed to make lighter work of something that I would normally use a wire wheel to clean up.

          Pros know that removing oily soils from fabric requires a specialized pre-treatment. This professional grade pre-treater is specifically formulated with advanced oil and grease dissolving power, allowing soils to easily lift away in the wash. Just spray, rub or brush and wait 5-minutes to 10-minutes before washing.

          Finally found a product to get grease stains off my shirts. I have ruined so many shirts with grease spatters mostly while cooking. This product worked on getting the stains off the two t-shirts I tried. Just spray it on, rub it in, let it sit about 15 minutes and wash. It does have a strong chemical smell and I was really worried about it smelling after they were washed. The smell did not linger or get on the other clothes in the washer.

          The Emsco rainwater collection systems are both earth-friendly and money-saving. By reducing dependency on water from municipal sources, the energy demand for purifying water used for yard and garden purposes is reduced. Collecting rainwater eliminates strain on wells and water systems during drought conditions, and you save real dollars by reducing your monthly water and sewer bills. This rain barrel kit collects rainwater to be both environmentally-friendly and cost-effective by reducing your dependence on municipal or well water. The diverter system does not have to be removed during the winter season and can be by-passed so that water flows through the downspout as usual, keeping water from getting into the rain barrel and freezing. The barrel itself can hold up to 55 Gal. of rain water to be used at your disposal.

          Answer: 
          The barrel is solid construction with two holes in the top with screw off lids. The manual states "A mild soap and water solution can be used to clean both inside and outside of barrel. Fill barrel about 1/4 full and shake/agitate to loosen any debris. Remove bottom outlet hose and spray water into top hole to flush. Wipe outside with non-abrasive cloth."
