          This fan is an attractive light bronze color but should not be confused with the dark brown of oiled bronze. It is more like a dark brushed nickel. The style is slightly modern, due to the lattice pattern around the light fixture, and a nice feature is that the blades are a light ash gray on one side, and a darker brown on the other, so you can choose which you would prefer facing down into the room.
          Installation was straightforward for anyone with an intermediate or advanced skill level, the only thing to watch for is to make sure to attach the mounting bracket to the electrical box and use the existing electrical box screws if possible.

          This fan is an attractive light bronze color but should not be confused with the dark brown of oiled bronze. It is more like a dark brushed nickel. The style is slightly modern, due to the lattice pattern around the light fixture, and a nice feature is that the blades are a light ash gray on one side, and a darker brown on the other, so you can choose which you would prefer facing down into the room.
          Installation was straightforward for anyone with an intermediate or advanced skill level, the only thing to watch for is to make sure to attach the mounting bracket to the electrical box and use the existing electrical box screws if possible. The electrical box is usually attached to a beam in the ceiling, thus ensuring the fan will not fall, as it is surprisingly heavy. We had two black wires, instead of just one, in our electrical box, the extra one turned out to be tied into the dimmer switch on the wall. Our handyman closed off the extra black wire to the dimmer for safety. The other black wire goes to the regular toggle wall switch which will turn the fan and light on or off but does not control the speed. To set the fan speed to Low, Medium, or High, or turn the light on or off, just use the remote that comes with the fan.
          The fan comes with a 4.5 inch down rod included, but I wanted the fan blades to be lower from the ceiling to circulate more air, so I bought a 12 inch down rod. There wasn't a down rod available in a matching bronze color but as you can see from the photo, the oiled bronze down rod looks fine. This fan moves a lot of air, even on the lowest setting as it is slightly more powerful than our previous ceiling fan. As well, this fan has 54 inch blades whereas our old one was only 52 inches.
          Finally, the LED lights give a soft glow, and not the harsh white light of many LED's. The LED's are supposed to last some 40 years before needing replacement, but the LED fitting is a spare part that can be purchased if ever needed and would not be hard to install as it sits right above the light cover (see photo).
          We are very pleased with quality, appearance, and functionality of this fan and it makes an attractive addition to our dining room. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, moves plenty of air

          Viagrow plant saucers are placed under any self-draining potted plants. Plastic plant Saucers are great for potted succulents, flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables. Viagrow plastic saucers catch water runoff and media, protecting surfaces below the plastic plant saucer. The ribbed plant saucer bottom helps prevent pooling and aid in oxygen retention for the root zone. Viagrow plant saucers are available in 8 in., 10 in., 12 in., 14 in., 17 inch and we also offer a multi size pack VCS-25MP which includes 5 saucers of each size.

          Especially ideal for pot plants beside the pool because these are unbreakable, I don't have to worry about breakage as I would with terra cotta saucers.
          Many of the plants in my small garden are planted in clay pots, rather than in the ground, so they dry out very quickly in the Texas summer heat. I have to water all of them every other day at the very least, and sometimes more often, which is a chore. At 12 inches in diameter, most of my larger pots fit comfortably into this size saucer with room to spare, and I make sure to water the pot plant so well that the saucer fills with water. This allows me to water much less often.

          What I particularly like is that because these saucers are clear, when I can't see any water remaining in the saucer, I know it's time to water the plant again. They are also made of a sturdy plastic, which doesn't buckle under the weight of the pot. Read Less

          The Franklin Brass Freestanding Toilet Paper Holder is the perfect blend of form and function. It has beautiful lines in three finishes that go well with any bathroom style, and it stores toilet paper in exactly the place you most need it - right next to you. Don't get caught without a roll or struggle with the spring on your wall-mounted dispenser ever again - not when you've got Franklin Brass solutions, instead.

          Toilet rolls are now so easy to reach because you can place this roll holder anywhere you want, and are not restricted by having to attach the toilet roll holder to a vertical surface in the bathroom. We were twisting and turning because our old toilet roll holder was mounted in a very awkward spot on the side of the vanity. Then I resorted to a basket (see photo) on the edge of the tub to hold one roll just to make it easier to reach. But this stand alone holder has resolved all those issues. It's height is conveniently about the same height as the toilet, putting the roll directly within reach.

          These finely woven cotton solid napkin are expressly designed to coordinate with any napkin collection you want to pair them with. Made of 100% cotton with hand tied fringe they can be used separately or combined with another napkin so that the fringe peaks out. Can be used with daily meals or can be part of a fancier table setting.

          High quality tightly woven 100 per cent cotton and made in India, these table napkins are soft to the touch. They measure about 18 inches square in size. The color is a mid brown, and as with any dark colors, need to be washed separately in cold water so they do not fade or discolor other items in the same wash. They can be machine washed but should be tumble dried on a low heat to avoid shrinkage.
          The fringed edge on all sides gives the napkins a slightly more casual look, but they look nice when rolled in my silver napkin rings with one fringed edge showing as decoration.

          The citrus scent is quite wonderful, but sadly not strong enough to be noticeable in a room. The only way you can smell it is to get up very close and take a sniff. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that I would have liked it to be at least noticeable as it's such a lovely scent. Maybe the manufacturer needs to make the scent just a little bit stronger. Read Less

          Answer: 
          These sachets are small and designed to remove odors from tight spaces like trash cans, the fridge, smelly shoes and so forth. I doubt they would work to remove smoke odor from a room. You should look at some of the other Gonzo products for that I think.
