          These are super effective for dusting - definitely more effective than my old-school reusable microfiber cloth and dust spray solution for dusting furniture. Because they don’t fit my hard-floor duster very well, I don’t plan to use them on floors. However, they work great for dusting furniture and horizontal surfaces (like ceiling fan blades, fireplace mantel, etc.). The one thing I don’t like about them is that they aren’t reusable like my old microfiber system, so I’ll probably reserve these for infrequent deep cleaning and keep using reusable cloths for more frequent dusting.

          The GROHE Sense Guard water control system continuously monitors water pressure in the pipes, detecting every anomaly from minor leaks to a major burst. Once a pipe burst is detected, the water supply is automatically shut off and an alert is sent to your smartphone. AqualQ self-learning algorithm learns your patterns of water consumption and alerts you if your water consumption is higher than usual, even detecting minor leaks and notifying you on your smartphone. GROHE Sense Guard also monitors changes in temperature and water pressure to help prevent frost damage. Grohe Sense Guard connects to your home WiFi network. In the case of a connectivity loss, GROHE Sense Guard continues to protect your home by shutting off water in the event a pipe burst occurs.

          This sensor and controller monitors your normal water usage, and if there is a leak, the sensor detects it based on an abnormal water usage pattern, and then lets you know AND shuts off your water if there is a major leak. It’s worked well for me and sent me notifications a couple of times when a leaky toilet had a slow leak. The installation was not super easy, but that’s because I have galvanized rather than copper pipes. With copper, all you do is cut it and there are quick couplings (compression fittings). With galvanized pipes, we had to retrofit by cutting out a section of pipe and then add threads to install this unit.

          I got this tire sealer for the two tires on a 5’x12’ trailer that I use for hauling firewood. It was easy to install by squirting it into a tire after removing the valve stems. I drive on rough, rocky roads with the trailer and haven’t had any issues in the 3 months since I used it. This was a great solution for me, because I’m usually hauling the trailer in remote areas where I can’t get any tire repair service and can’t always easily replace a tire with the spare.

          These are sturdy little containers for a minimalist first aid kit. The come with two white boxes and two red ones. I use mine for about half a dozen bandaids, a couple of pepto tabs, a couple of antihistimine tablets, a small tube of neosporin, and a couple of q-tips. Because they come as a 4-pack, I made duplicate kits and put one in my purse, one in my overnight suitcase, one in my hiking backpack, and one in my ski backpack. I’m pleased to find a small, durable case like this - it’s way smaller and lighter than the big first-aid kit I used to carry in my backpacks (though I still carry larger bandages and a splint that doesn’t fit in these boxes).

          Answer: 
          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.

          Answer: 
          I'd recommend getting a new faucet as it would be easier than drilling new 8" holes for your old faucet. If you want an 8" faucet though, you could certainly drill new holes (if you have proper tools and skills) and then get an ecutcheon to cover the old holes.
