          This is an easy disposal cleaner product. Fill your sink with water. It does not need to be a lot. Then start the disposal to clean it out and make it clear of any debris. Then reduce the water flow to a trickle and plink your sink with the disposal turned on. It will crush the tiny ball. It makes for a lemon scent, but that dissipates after a short time. It says to do it weekly. Our sink is not too bad anyway. So I might stretch it to something a few times a month or as needed. One note, these look like the candied lemon drops...so be sure to keep away from children and in a safe/secure place.

          This is a four season fertilizer system from Scotts. I got this mid-spring, so I started early given Southern CA weather climate with the Summer fertilizer in early to mid May. I know I am a little early, but these bags all say to spread twice per season. Some can be done with as little as 30 days from one another. I will be doing it ever 45-60 days so with minimal sprinkling during each set. You don't have to be skimpy with the fertilizer, but you do have to be careful so that you don't burn your lawn either.
          So far, the effect has been awesome. Within a week of feeding the lawn turned a deep rich dark green and grew like crazy!

          This is a four season fertilizer system from Scotts. I got this mid-spring, so I started early given Southern CA weather climate with the Summer fertilizer in early to mid May. I know I am a little early, but these bags all say to spread twice per season. Some can be done with as little as 30 days from one another. I will be doing it ever 45-60 days so with minimal sprinkling during each set. You don't have to be skimpy with the fertilizer, but you do have to be careful so that you don't burn your lawn either.
          So far, the effect has been awesome. Within a week of feeding the lawn turned a deep rich dark green and grew like crazy!
          The main take away though from this fertilizer for me is that you can not put the spring/fall fertilizer on St. Augustine. It actively seeks out crab grass, St. Augustine, clover and ground cover. If you have that for a lawn, do not use that bag!
          The summer is good for all types of grass. It has a no burn guarantee. It is primarily to promote deep roots and provide strength against drought.
          The fall blend is supposed to take care of dandelions. It also features something that is supposed to allow better water absorption. It is NOT good for St. Augustine. This is a bermuda, bluegrass, fescue, rye blend only. It will take care of clovers, common weeks like dollarweeds.
          The winter blend is good for any blend of grass. It is supposed to help build roots for any winter weather that may come your way. It does have something in it that takes care of dollarweed.
          There is also a bag for halting crabgrass and weeds. This too should be used very carefully. READ the bag for the blends it will promote growth for...and which ones it will kill off.
          Overall, I have used Scott's in the past and as long you read the directions to see just how it will impact your lawn, it works great. For me personally, I have a St. Augustine in the front yard, so I can't use the weed & feed bag there. But I can use it in the back yard where it is mainly bermuda and fescue. The bags themselves are good for 15k square feet. They weigh about 40+lbs each. They are heavy! So definitely use a low lying push spreader.
          One hint they offer on the weed & feed is to water the lawn or spread during morning dew so that it sticks to the grass. Then do not water for a couple of days. The product will actively root out and destroy the weeds.
          For our lawn, I will likely use about 1/3 of a bag per each spread. So I will have a little left over for next season.
          If you don't mind storing fertilizer at your property, this is the way to shop! Just get one set and it is done for all season. Read Less

          Small and lightweight, theAdir Chef coffee maker can be easily transported from one location to another. It's the perfect size coffee maker for tight counter spaces in your home or you can set up your own personal maker in your cubicle at work. Easy to use, simply slide the companion travel mug into the brewing base. Open the easy fill top to pour in your coffee grounds and water and then click the single button switch to instantly start brewing. Once the 15 oz. cup is full, the coffee maker automatically shuts off to save power. The appliance is equipped with a permanent filter, making it eco-friendly and eliminating the use of paper filters. It also comes included with a stainless-steel travel mug, lid and holding basket. The coffee maker parts and mug is dishwasher safe to make cleaning easy.

          This is a 16 ounce one cup coffee maker (although to make the mug worth and not spill, you will really be getting 13-14 ounces).
          There is not much to it and works along the same lines as other single cup makers. Just pour the water in the back of the container. Add the coffee grounds. Close the lid. Align the cup below the spigot and press start. Less than three minutes later you will have a perfect cup of coffee.
          If you are into ground coffee, you can use the filter that is in there. If you are looking to make instant or with cocoa packets it can do that too. This is especially nice if you intend on using this while traveling. Just heat the water and have it pour directly into the Read More

          If you are into ground coffee, you can use the filter that is in there. If you are looking to make instant or with cocoa packets it can do that too. This is especially nice if you intend on using this while traveling. Just heat the water and have it pour directly into the mug containing the instant product.
          One note about using this during travel. It does not have any type of case. You can either save the box or buy a little case on your own.
          The plastic on this is very, very thin. I have only had this for a short time. And while it makes excellent and hot coffee, I do not envision it lasting forever unless you take really good care of it.
          The cup is metal on the outside with an easy grip and feel in hand. The interior though is plastic. It will not keep your coffee hot for great lengths of time. I usually make it using the cup that comes with it and pouring it directly in to my drinking mug.
          The lid on the cup is plastic. It is not like the ones you might get at a fast food restaurant. It is sturdier. But still thin. The only benefit to this is that it does make this coffee maker very light weight. I can appreciate that.
          Some caveats from the directions -
          1. It is not for use outdoors. So if you think you can go camping with this, be advised.
          2. The power button they reference is only about 3/8" wide. So unless you have toddler sized hands, the best way to push the button is to hold the machine steady with one hand and press the button with your index finger using your other hand. I know this sounds patronizing, but when you see just how light weight and thin the plastic is, you will understand.
          3. Allow three minutes between brewing second mugs of coffee. This really does make it a single serving/person coffee maker.
          4. Lastly, the directions suggest three tablespoons of ground coffee! I believe this is a misprint. At that amount, you are almost ready to use a percolator that makes 12 cups at a time and not a single cup! So use the level of grounds that make it taste good to you. You can make multiple cups using the same grounds. Read Less

          This is a ph balanced daily marble cleaner that is good for granite, ceramics, limestone, most tiles and a few other stones.
          I got it for two purposes. We have ceramic tiles in the bathroom that regular bathroom cleaners sometimes do not do the trick on.
          The other purpose is that I can use this at the cemetery for one to two times a year cleaning headstones. Like any headstone, you will want to wash it with just water to start. Then after it dries you can put this cleaner on the surface, so that if any part of it has become porous, it will not soak up the cleaning solution. Instead, it will leave a streak free shine.

          This is a giant chicken! Always fun and easy to inflate/deflate, this rooster is good to have just floating in the pool, whether someone is in it or not! Definitely a conversation piece of the silliest variety. And kids love it! I took it to a pool party for Memorial Day and it was a huge hit.
          It looks just like the pictures. It says it is made for age 8 and up. That is because of the largeness to it. A small child will not be able to sit on it. Their bottoms and legs are just too little. The plastic/vinyl appears durable too. With proper care, it should last a few summers even though there is only a one year warranty.
          This one is just too much fun to pass up.

          I just applied a base coat of Sekrete stucco base coat mix to my garage wall exterior. I need one more layer of brown coat before applying my finishing coat. To speed up the process, can I use Rapidset instead of another bag of regular brown coat before applying my finishing coat of stucco mix?

          Answer: 
          I don't know if this applies to your situation. But in my use of the product, we used it to re-stucco certain areas and exclusively used this product. No brown coat or finishing coat. We had a rep from the company do the project. Granted this was not a new stucco area, but instead a patch here and there where some measured 2 inches deep. I have since used it myself for crack repair and cover up.

          Yes. It would work. But pressed plywood may become discolored. It contains bleach. So if there is a coloring to the top layer of the plywood, you may want to do a test area before spraying it on to the entire thing.
