          HDX box sealing tape is a value oriented choice for sealing shipping, moving, and storage cartons. Tape rolls will hold well in cold and hot humid temperatures. This 2-pack is great for refilling tape dispensers and bigger projects.

          I use a LOT of packing tape in my house. We use it for crafts, we use it for preserving jigsaw puzzles, I used it to seal flashcards for my nephews study cards. I used to buy dollar store packing tape thinking that it was all the same...it isn't. I found this out the hard way in my last major move to a new state.
          Never trust discount packing tape...
          It's a motto in my house that we ALL follow!
          This tape is NOT discount quality tape - it's wonderfully strong and very adhesive clear packing tape that can handle many tough jobs, from package mailing, to packing up boxes for relocation. It's nice strong tape!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Sturdy

          This awesome little scoop arrived just the other day! I must admit to being excited about Christmas (it arrived on the 24th), but I'm seriously excited about the upcoming spring planting season so I can try this nifty scoop out.
          First of all let me say how really well made it is! This isn't going to be falling apart or buckling under the weight of a hearty scoop of soil any time. It's solid and it shows when you have it in your hands.
          And if I need even more reason to like this item...it made in the USA!!!
          Being able to get an actual decent sized scoop of soil out of the bag this year is going to be exciting!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Strong, Vibrant Color, made in the usa!

          Who doesn't just ADORE Joanna Gaines and her hysterical hubby on Fixer Upper? I could watch them all day long. But even better than their wonderful TV show, is their ability to bring items to the consumer that actually reflect their signature style shown on that mega popular show.
          This wonderful wallpaper is no exception. It really is beautiful. Why not five stars? The vinyl smell that hits the second you open the roll is extremely strong.

          But it's the design on the paper that has me swooning. I'm a fiend for any type of roses. I will take a beautiful rose pattern pretty much any day of the week. This wallpaper has incredible muted tones of gray, while bringing out the beauty of the floral pattern. I will be using this in my ½ bathroom in the Wainscoting portion, as soon as we get the room repainted.
          I guess my only suggestion for this paper is to make sure that you buy quite a bit more for waste - the pattern doesn't repeat itself in a close enough pattern, and it looks like a LARGE amount is going to be lost when matching up the pattern.

          Pros: Easy to Install, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Well Made

          I am a door and cabinet hardware hound. I collect knobs and hardware for my furniture refinishing projects and wooden trinket box hobby. I know when something simple like a handle, knob or hinge, is one of the fastest ways to go about a TOTALLY new and changed look.
          I'm a bit torn on this know to be honest. While it is extremely pretty, the weight is less than stellar. It feels a bit "inexpensive. Therefore, I would definitely designate this one to a rather popular category for me...the "budget friendly knob". It is indeed perfect for the consumer that needs a pretty and functional knob at a good price!
          Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish, pretty design, great price
          Cons: lightweight

          The design of Liberty's 1-1/4 in. Knob with Backplate is reminiscent of traditional 19th century Craftsman decor. This knob, paired with a bold Matte Black finish, adds a cozy warmth to your cabinetry and furniture. The old world charm of this knob easily transforms your kitchen or bathroom into a celebration of bygone times.

I definitely know when something simple like a handle, knob or hinge, can change the ENTIRE look of a item, and that it is one of the fastest ways to go about that changed look.
          I was REALLY impressed at the weight of this knob. It is substantial. This one will go a long way in changing up any drawer, door or decorative container or box. The installation process was a breeze. It is indeed a lovely knob

          Answer: 
          Although this is my first time in hearing about the draining when you won't be home (to be safe, yes, I'd totally be up for it just to be safe), the drain is super easy to empty, but more importantly, it's part of your maintenance to keep your machine in top running shape!

          Although this is my first time in hearing about the draining when you won't be home (to be safe, yes, I'd totally be up for it just to be safe), the drain is super easy to empty, but more importantly, it's part of your maintenance to keep your machine in top running shape! Not only is there a drain down there, but a filter too! This filter catches all sorts of gunk and grime. Both are a breeze to maintain.
          Just get a saucepan, and a thick towel. Next, pull the short drain hose out from the clamp, and twist off the cap - OVER YOUR PAN!!! Hold the drain hose over the pan until it's empty. Don't be surprised at the amount of water in there, it's a good few cups!
          Replace the cap, and re-secure the hose into it's spot within the clamp.
          NEXT - the filter!!! Unscrew the filter and twist it out of the opening. Pull out the [plastic] filter and clean out any gunk that is trapped in that filter. It's fairly dry, but will be moist, most of it should come out without any issues, but you can give it a swish in the water being held in your pan.
          Re-secure the filter by screwing it back into it's spot, and you're good to go! This should be done every SIX weeks to keep your Samsung washer running at it's best.

          Answer: 
          I don't see why not - they would fit "can lights" as long as they are not too deep, as you may need have the tool to help recess it into the light.
          I certainly would measure the opening to the ceiling light and compare it to the measurements of the bulbs just to be sure.
