          The Classic Swag is a handmade tied bundle of live mixed greens, made of fir, cedar and pine. It displays a hand-tied red velvet bow and real natural pinecones. The use of swags is only limited to your imagination. Easily add decorations as desired. Wintergreens stay fresh in cool climates, in warmer regions they may dry but will maintain its look for the holiday season. To keep wintergreens fresh use Wilt Pruf initially or periodically mist with water. Door hanger not included.

          This is an elegant and easy bit of holiday flair. I love real trees, real wreaths, and real swags, but I don’t have real time to spend gathering conifer boughs and making them! The three pine cones are 3-4” long, and the cones together with the conifer boughs and velvety red ribbon art artfully arranged (better than I could do). As you can see in the photo, it’s not the largest or most ostentatious bit of holiday decor - both of which I prefer - but it dresses up my porch for the holiday. My black kitty approves.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, nice mix of natural materials and velvety bow

          The Squids Can/Bottle Holder and Trap makes it easy to carry and secure your water bottle, spray bottle, aerosol can or other canisters of similar sizes to prevent dropped objects while working at-heights. There is a zinc plated D-ring on the backside that can be used to attach a tool lanyard to complete your tethering system. To keep your hands free, there's a stainless-steel belt clip on the side to easily attach to a tool belt or fall protection harnesses. The can and bottle holder is made of abrasion-resistant neoprene that stretches to fit 16.9 oz. (0.5 l) containers including most standard plastic water bottles or even a can of WD40. The adjustable webbing strap can accommodate a variety of bottles and cans and features a buckle closure system to safely secure them into the holder. Constructed with heavy-gauge nylon stitching for extra reinforcement, the bottle holster is made to take on use and abuse. The open top design makes drinking water a breeze in any situation, whether at-heights or on the ground. Use it as a can or bottle koozie while your out on the boat, a spray can holder when your in the garage or water bottle sleeve while training for your next race. Whatever it is, weve got you covered. Color: Black.

          This bottle/can holder does what it say: it securely holds any can or bottle that is about 2-3” diameter and up to half a liter (for water bottles). It has a burly metal clip for attaching to a belt, pocket, or bag, and also has a d-ring to which you can attach your own carabiner or webbing. My only complaint about this is that the top flap is made specifically to go over a water bottle that is tapered at the top, like most single-use plastic water bottles. However, I tend to use reusable bottles, so that tapered top sits a little weird on my nalgene half-liter bottle. Even so, the holder is grippy and really holds on tight to the water bottle so I know I won’t lose it during the day while Read More

          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, multiple attachment modes

          Rejuvenate Professional Hardwood Floor Cleaner has been specially designed for use on hardwood floors. This professional formula is naturally derived to help maximize cleaning power and minimize streaking. Its strong enough to eliminate the worst dust, dirt and debris, yet gentle enough to use as a daily cleaner. No mop bucket means its easy to clean in tough places and is the best way to effectively clean hardwood floors with little effort. To reveal the natural shine on hardwood floors, simply spray the professional hardwood floor cleaner in the desired location and mop with the grain. The natural surfactants eliminate dirt and debris while the added ionic discharging agents instantly dry the floor with no streaks, saving you time. From Rejuvenate Make It New Again.

          I have solid-surface floors throughout my house, and this is my single go-to product for floor cleaning. It works well on my new strand-woven bamboo, my 100-year-old Douglas-fir front room (with their “character” and all), porcelain tile in the bathrooms, and vinyl tile in the kitchen (shown in the photo). You don’t need a mop and bucket to use this - a wet mop is actually bad for most wood floors - just use a spray bottle full of this stuff with a microfiber cover on a floor cleaning wand. Note that this is a giant refill bottle, but you can use any spray bottle (I use the first bottle of Rejuvenate that I bought as a trial run).
          Pros: Easy to Use, cleans well

          Neighbors will come from miles and want to know how you cleaned so much, so fast, without hard scrubbing, without a ladder, without a squeegee and without breaking a sweat. Rejuvenates Outdoor MULTI-Surface House Wash and Window Cleaner is a concentrated formula that instantly removes stains dirt, debris, bird droppings and wind grime from outdoor windows and siding without any hard scrubbing. The formula is simple; rinse, spray on formula, wait 2-minutes and rinse. Repeat as needed or scrub to agitate areas with layers of caked-on dirt. The best way to wash windows is never having to get on a ladder and clean up to 40 remove dirt, pollen, salt residue and other stuck on messes. This window cleaner leaves behind a streak-free shine. Its also non-toxic and is safe to use on vinyl siding, wood siding, brick, stucco, painted walls and exterior window cleaning safe for plants.

          Washing your house doesn’t get any easier than this. I hooked a garden hose up to the bottle and then started spraying - I didn’t do any scrubbing or wiping, just sprayed it on and then rinsed afterwards with clean water. My house and garage have vinyl siding, and the garage in particular is subject to wind, blowing dust, and general farm gunk on one wall. Earlier this fall it was really grossing me out with grime and cobwebs, and as you can see in the “after” photo, the house wash solution did a great job.
          Pros: Easy to Use, cleans well even grimy siding

          The Citristrip 1/2 gal. Safer Paint and Varnish Stripping Gel removes layers of paint, both latex and oil-based paint. Its also effective at removing varnish, shellac and epoxy in 1 step. The stripper has a pleasant citrus scent and is biodegradable. Most important is that its safe for indoor use.

          I have an old house, and Citristrip has been the perfect solution for stripping and refinishing old woodwork that I do not want to remove. (Removing old moldings often damages the adjacent plaster, which opens cans of worms that I do not want to open!) In the photos, you can see the “before” - an old door with probably 6 layers of paint - and the “after”, which is the stripped, sanded, and refinished Douglas-fir molding around the door.

I will say that it takes a LOT of elbow grease. In my case, I used the product 3 times to get multiple layers of paint stripped from this door molding. Each time, the paint bubbles and peels a little bit more. Apply uniform, thick layers, and then be patient! That took care of the paint, and the sander was only necessary to buff out marks from where my scraper gouged the wood. In short, won’t use any other paint stripper in my home - great stuff!

          Does this range have any flanges (or "wings") that cover the gap between the range and the adjacent countertop? I'm looking for a range with no flanges - just a flat edge that abuts the countertop. Thank you for any responses.

          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.
