          I love this stuff. Nothing else makes the disposer so clean and fresh smelling. It's not a cover up scent thing like the lemon fresh "marbles" you plink into the sink. ;) The instructions say to run a pencil width stream of water, but I prefer less. That way the foam stays in longer and actually makes it come up the other side of the sink to get the whole system clean.

          I ultimately did not install this faucet. There are several things about it I really like, and the one that I don't like may not matter to people, so I didn't give it just one star.

          As for the neat features, I love that the faucet swivels, making it easier to rinse soap, shaving stubble, etc. The high arc it great for washing your face or washing your hair in the sink. The touchless feature is awesome for whenever you have stuff on your hands you don't want ion the faucet, like hair dye. The finish is really nice, but I really wish it was spot free. My guest bath faucet is and it's amazing, so Glacier Bay needs to step it up!

          My boss says I have OCD, but I just like to be tidy. My media center is up on legs, and all the cables can be seen dangling near the floor in back of it. I had saved a variety of twist ties to wind up the slack, but they don't seem to hold, or I don't have the right length and have to trade them around with other cords and cables. They are the perfect length, and they hold firmly to keep the cables up and out of sight. They are thin enough that they are easily broken with a little force, or yanked open with a little more, of can be snipped with common scissors. I'm in love.

          This stainless steel FlipOut Handle and Stand folds flat, creates a secure grip and lets you easily view your phone hands-free in both landscape and portrait modes. The low-profile design slides into pockets without snagging, but flips out to create a convenient handle or stand. It’s the little details that set this high-quality phone accessory apart from anything else on the market. With strong and secure 3M VHB adhesive, high-quality construction and a design engineered to work equally as well as a stand as it does as a handle. Plus, the unique articulation of the FlipOut lets you use it flat, folded out, fully-extended or anywhere in between.

          I have mixed feelings about this stand. It's very nice looking, solid brushed metal. It snaps closed tightly to the back of your device so it doesn't tend to get caught on things. But then because it's solid metal, it adds weights to the device. It might not make a difference to people with larger devices in cases, but I have an iPhone 6S that I don't keep in a case, and this adds nearly an ounce to it. It doesn't sound like much, but I can feel the added fatigue holding the phone.
          It's also not very comfortable. Using it as a handle, it has hard edges that rather dig in. I have medium sized girl hands and it barely fits me, so i don't see it doing very well for many others. I only use it Read More

          It's also not very comfortable. Using it as a handle, it has hard edges that rather dig in. I have medium sized girl hands and it barely fits me, so i don't see it doing very well for many others. I only use it in "stand" position just supporting the phone in my hand. I can't use either way very well to hold the phone horizontally, but the stand works great that way. But the stand doesn't work that well vertically.
          I think a lot of the issues have to do with exactly where you stick it. Obviously I've flipped and turn the phone every which way to test this thing, but I think ultimately I'll be removing it. Read Less

          Stonewalled is a next generation, nano-technology, impregnating sealer that protects porous mineral surfaces from staining. Stonewalled is a niche, high end sealer that transforms porous surfaces into ultra- water, oil and stain repellent super surfaces. Stonewalled also gives the surface non-stick properties, inhibiting the chemical bonding and absorption of pollutants, chewing gum and other sticky materials.

          The bottle indicates you can apply this to grout, but how it that done? Will it wipe off ceramic tile, or do you have to cover the entire surface just to cover the grout? That seems wasteful. Can you brush it on the grout lines?

          Fix your cracked and leaky, chipped or unattractive shower pan with the NuTub 24 in. W x 24 in. L Shower Floor Repair Inlay Kit. A cracked, leaky shower isn't just unsightly - it's a liability. Water seeps through the cracks, collecting on the floor below. The result can be structural damage and worse yet, mold. Mold can be a serious health concern. The NuTub 24 in. W x 24 in. L Shower Floor Repair Inlay Kit is a permanent and easy solution designed for a DIY installation. No special tools or skills are required. It takes about an hour to install. The kit includes a flexible inlay, specifically designed to cover cracks and hide damage to the shower pan. The strong waterproof adhesive permanently binds the inlay to your shower floor. When properly installed, the inlay is better than your original shower pan. The NuTub 24 in. W x 24 in. L Shower Floor Repair Inlay Kit will work on most shower pans including fiberglass, acrylic, porcelain, cast iron, pressed steel enamel and plastic. The inlay's built in anti-slip texture also helps prevent serious falls in the shower, which according to the CDC is the biggest cause of accidental injuries in the home.
           

          Can the inlay material be cut?

          October 7, 2015
          Can the inlay material be cut without it losing integrity? I have a fiberglass shower insert with two seats which makes the area around the drain more of a triangle. The cracking is within about 4 inches for the drain, so I don't need the full size, but I don't want it to become ruined if I trim it.

          It comes with a key that is necessary for programming. The key will operate the lock if the battery dies. I do share your concern about the battery. In my experience, really cold weather might affect it, and there is no information on how often to bring the lock in for charging.

          Yes, I managed toast in it. The fan flipped up my my cheap bread, but I was able to work it out. Pop tarts wouldn't be a problem.
           
          Where the traditional Air Fryer ends, the new Air Fryer Oven begins. Cook all of your favorite fried foods with little to no oil and now, prepare meals and snacks that were recently impossible with the traditional Air Fryer. The Air Fryer Oven has three levels that allow you to take full control of the crispiness, tenderness and doneness of your food. Make dried fruit for healthy snacks, tasty jerky, or dry your spices with the new Dehydrate function. Prepare whole roasts, chickens, tenderloins, or evenly roasted vegetables with the improved rotisserie capabilities and included rotisserie accessories. Fry, Roast, Bake, Dehydrate - the only limitation to what you can make using the new 12.7 QT Electric Programmable Air Fryer Oven Deluxe is your imagination.
