          What drew me to this shower set was honestly the tub spout. I'm used to the basic chrome spouts from the 80's & 90's, so this is quite a step up! The design style, shape and flanging of the spout are all absolutely gorgeous, and will really make the tub pop. One can easily replace a shower head, but this spout is really where it's at. Additionally, the chrome finish is almost mirror-like, and really makes the entire set shine.
          The valve body assembly is quite well made solid from what appears to be brass, so it will last a lifetime.

          I haven't had a chance to install this shower combo yet, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow, so i expect installation to be relatively painless. Everything you need (aside from tools, of course) is included, along with a plug in case you only want to install the shower portion without the tub spout.
          SUMMARY
          A well designed and gorgeous chrome shower/tub set that is sure to make your bathroom sparkle.

          These little & easy-to-find boxes are an excellent solution to housing two of the most important things to own as a parent: Neosporin & Band-aids. Stash a few of these around the house, and in your car, and you'll be ready for the next time your minion scrapes their knee. These are a vast improvement over the older band-aid holders from my childhood. Those were too skinny, held only a few bandages, and as far as the antiseptic, you can just forget about that!
          These BooBooBoxes easily hold over a dozen different sized bandages, along with a small tube of Antiseptic cream. The cream is key, because not only does it kill bacteria, but it also numbs the pain in the wound. It's a key part of Read More

          These BooBooBoxes easily hold over a dozen different sized bandages, along with a small tube of Antiseptic cream. The cream is key, because not only does it kill bacteria, but it also numbs the pain in the wound. It's a key part of the parenting arsenal.
          The only two downsides are that the lid is molded to the body and that the front latch is too flimsy. This results in the box opening regularly with even a modest amount of items inside pushing up on the lid. Additionally, i would give these lids maybe 20-30 openings before the top breaks off completely.
          Overall, this is a decent solution to a problem that most parents encounter regularly. However, the execution could be a bit better. None the less, it's still better than hauling around a full sized box of band-aids. Read Less

          A lovely and feng shui solution to a simple problem. When you're in the bath, you want to HOLD things. Be it an iPad, a book, a magazine, whatever. Something to keep your mind occupied while you're relaxing. But of course that comes with the risk of getting that item wet. Well, fret no more! This solution is easy, and universal for pretty much anything you want to do while bathing. There's a wine stem holder (which i have not yet tried), and, most importantly, an adjustable holder for books, portables, and what not. Of course there's a good chance that you'll get your item wet when turning pages or swiping screens. But in my experience, the major damage comes from holding said item, or even Read More

          Large, and easy to stick on & peel off.
          These are not glow-in-the-dark, for your information. But they are easy to stick, and easy to remove. A bit on the thin side, unfortunate, for their size, meaning that there's a chance they can rip while being moved. The packaging is great, and these are a nice size, at just under a foot per unicorn. Perfect for white or off-white walls in a girl's bedroom. They look great, and are fun activity to perform with your child.

          The first thing you'll notice about these glow-in-the-dark stars are their size. They are very big. If your plan is to re-create the night sky on your ceiling, these unfortunately aren't the best stars to use. They are just too big. They glow just fine, although not very brightly, and not for very long. Easy to stick, and easy to remove.

          Answer: 
          "All" is relative. Most is probably a better term to use. There can be residue left over, but there can't be large channels and gulleys, as the tiles will not be able to sit evenly. The rule of thumb is, as long as your new tiles are going to be HIGHER than the remaining mortar, you'll be fine. But remember, the cleaner the surface, the easier the install, and the less thin-set you'll use.
