          I use this product on my lazy boy recliner and the leather in my Cadillac SUV. I like how it cleaned and didn't leave behind that typical leather cleaner shinny film. This product works very good, it cleaned and livened up my leather recliner and it removed the paw prints made by little Westie in my car. There were some marks on my recliner that it did not get out probably because of its' age. This product should not be used on painted or dyed leather & vinyl.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use
          Cons: do not use on painted or dyed leather & vinyl

          This tape is a stretchy substance that melds to itself. The manufacturer claims that the bond is permanent, waterproof, airtight, non-conductive, and insulating and resists weathering, salt water and UV rays. When you stretch it thin and wrap it around something, the layers fuse together and it becomes like a band around the thing you've wrapped. The tape is separated by a layer of an ordinary plastic film. This separating film is wider than the actual E-Z Fuse Tape itself, to keep the tape effectively separated from the next layer.

          Follow the instructions and you will be amazed at how well this self-adhesive silicon material works at sealing leaks. To make it work as advertised, you need to wrap the tape around what you are trying to cover making sure each time around you are overlapping the previous layer and that you are stretching it to its maximum length. The overlapping is to get a complete cover and the stretching is what makes the layers stick together. Non-pressure applications require only a minor stretch and one layer. Read Less

          My old grill brush wasn't cleaning my grill as well as I would like. The bristles on this brush are strong and take care of some of the tougher residue that I haven't been able to get rid of for a while. The best part of the brush is the 21” reach. I am able to clean the grill without fear of getting too close to rack, while also reaching every nook and cranny. It's also easy to clean, just soak in hot water.

          The three piece wrench and pliers set is very good for the average DIY homeowner. The pliers and wrench can handle most common jobs around the house. The handles on the pliers are covered with rubber which make them are comfortable to use.

          This drill and drive bit set contains quite a few different high quality drive bits. I would have rated it higher if it had more than the five drill bits it contains. The carrying case is very sturdy and compact.
          Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, High Quality
          Cons: not enough drill bits

          Do I have to defrost this every few months? The manual says so but I thought this was a frost free model.

          is it possible to see the energy guide that should be on the freezer somewhere (In store) I can't find any info re energy use except that it is energystar. Would like to see how much difference in energy usage compared to a new freezer that isn't energystar. Thanks!!

          Answer: 
          I looked thought out the Owner's Manual but could not find anything on the energy guide of this appliance. If it was on the door when delivered it we would have removed it. I can only suggest you contact GE customer relations. GEAppliances.com/ge/service-and-support/contact.htm
           
          Crack-Tape repairs difficult cracks on flat surfaces and corners. Ten times stronger than paper tape, the tape repairs stress cracks and cracks due to truss uplifts. Crack-Tape cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, but also resists blisters, tears, shrinkage, and wrinkles. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it can be used for finishing drywall in high humidity applications. To apply measure and cut to length, then fold in half for corners. Apply all-purpose compound to surface or corner. Press Crack-Tape into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

          Answer: 
          I don't believe any drywall tape will be good on a sagging ceiling. This tape is excellent for ceilings where cracks keep on reappearing. I suggest that you use additional sheet rock screws to secure the wall board to the ceiling joists. Once the ceiling is secure I would use this crack tape.
