LinenSpa’s Weekender Queen Bedframe

Standard

We are renovating an older home, and are getting ready to move in. Since we have had our stuff in storage for a long time, we needed new bedding, and furniture. This Queen sized platform bed frame has really come in handy. I am only used to owning the low, traditional metal bedframes. This one is more modern, taller, and a lot sturdier. There are no large gaps to this frame. You really can literally put any type of mattress on it, and no box spring, or plywood is required. I measured the bedframe, and it indeed measures out at 14″ tall, 58″ wide, and 78″ long. The clearance under the bed is 13″. Since there are cross supports, you can fit 4 large containers under the bed for storage. Having extra storage space is pretty awesome. The company was not lying in their description; no tools are required to put this together. No skill set either, lol. You really just need to tighten up the leg supports. I like how it folds up. If you have to move frequently, (for example, if you are in the military), this is a great bedframe for you. It’s also great to store, and pull out to use with a nice air mattress, for company. Overall, this frame has turned out to be very well made, sturdy, easy to set up, and solid. We are really happy with it.

Light and Sound from LightingEver

Standard

LightingEver Lamp and Speaker 5

LED lighting and Bluetooth speakers are everyday items in our household. Bluetooth speakers are great for home, work, vacationing, poolside, and more. There is also always a need for a backup lighting source, be it for emergencies, camping, vacationing, work, and convenience. This product from LightingEver fits the bill for both. Not only is it a convenient source of light, it also has fun lighting options, and a built-in Bluetooth speaker. It has an internal 2200mAH battery, which allows for many hours of both music and light. It can go all day on low, for lighting alone. This light is so usable. It can be placed on the table, or hung with it’s built in hanger. It comes with both an Aux cable, and a micro USB cable. Don’t forget to pull the plastic off of the silicone ring on the bottom of the speaker. It really helps to keep the speaker/light in one spot on your table.

This product is very easy to use. My husband and I both have Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phones. It comes up as LE Lights01 to pair, no code needed. It states paired, so there is no guessing with this speaker. You can use both separate from each other. You do not have to use both the light and speaker together. You tap the center of the light to make it turn on, and to go through the colors. The last choice before off, is a beat to the music mode, which is pretty cool to watch. It’s very disco that way. You can even use this to answer calls.

There are 6 different colors to choose from: red, blue, green, purple, light blue, then the disco mode. Tap and hold the center area, to go to the white color mode. It comes on in low, tap again to go to medium, and again to go to high. The fourth tap has the white light in flashing/beat mode, and the 5th tap is off, for the light. You can just listen to music, audio books, videos, or anything you want via the Bluetooth speaker.  The sound and volume are pretty nice on this speaker. All types of music have been pretty clear, and enjoyable to listen to. The controls are on one side of the light, and the ports are on the opposite side of the speaker. You can listen to music, etc.. via an Aux cable, Bluetooth, or Micro SD card. You need to supply the micro SD card. This unit charges via the included micro USB cable. The Aux cable is also included. It does hold a pretty good charge with it’s 2200mAh internal battery, but can be used while plugged in. I like that feature. Not all Bluetooth speakers can be used while plugged in, I have found. I love the hanger option. You can hang it from your hood while working on your car. You can hang it in your tent for lighting, or from your umbrella at the beach, or backyard patio. It does not get hot to the touch, so it’s safe for your children to use.

LightingEver Lamp and Speaker 6

Overall, this is a fun, and very usable light/speaker. It has so many benefits, and can be used in many different ways. I have found it to be well made and durable. I, as usual, have dropped it quite a few times, lol. So, if you are slightly clumsy like me, you should be good with this product. It is a fun product to use.

Make it Squeaky Clean with this MATCC Foam Wash Gun from Yomoid.

Standard

Pressure washers are a common addition to many homes. We are renovating a home, and my son is rebuilding a truck. So, we had to get a new pressure washer, lol. Having a foam wash gun really makes cleaning so much easier. But, only if they are made well, and are easy to operate. Fortunately, we lucked into this one from Yomoid.

This foam wash gun arrives in three pieces: the bottle with tubing, the gun grip, and the nozzle attachment. It’s ready to roll right out of the package. The 1L bottle is a great size, and holds enough soap and water to wash more than one vehicle. My son has even used it to wash some of the car parts for his truck. The bottle is made out of a thick plastic. It is not bendy, or cheap at all. It should last a while. The same goes for the rest of the unit. The grip section is made out of a thick plastic, and the working parts are made out of brass fittings, just like you see in the plumbing world. On the grip, it actually states that the maximum psi that can be used is 4350psi, and a good working psi is 2175psi. The minimum required is 1000psi, though. 

foam wash gun 8

Our pressure washer, that we used this foam wash gun with, is 3100psi. It works like a dream for us. It’s just a twist knob to adjust the setting. The markings are only +, -. The + sign will add more water flow, which decreases the foam output. The – sign, decreases the water flow, which increases the foam output. Then, to adjust the fan spray, you just need to twist the from end of the gun, which is the nozzle end, that’s it. It’s really easy to use. Just attach the pressure washer tubing to the grip end. Add your soap and water to the bottle. If needed, you can add warm water to the bottle, and then the soap, to more quickly spread the soap into the water. We didn’t do this, and we still got a lot of foam.

Foam Wash Gun 5

Now, when you are done sudsing up whatever you are washing, you can easily disconnect the water bottle and fan nozzle from the handle section. Then, just add a fitting of your choice onto the quick connect end, and rinse off your project. It took my husband about 30 seconds to make the initial changeover, that’s it. Using the gun grip is really nice. It’s comfortable to hold and use. It’s so easy to stop the flow by just releasing your grip. We did not use a special soap to wash our vehicles, only dish soap, and it worked so well through this. My son used Zep Purple Degreaser Soap through this foam wash gun, and he said it worked really well for him. It really made the job easier for him.  Overall, this is a well-made, easy to use tool. It really has become a quick indispensable tool to our pressure washer.

Let there be Light – iTLTL’s Creative LED Desk Lamp & Night Light

Standard

Lighting is an important feature for any home. I’m not talking about just regular overhead lighting, or even regular table lamps. One should always be prepared for emergencies, or just plain unplugged, fun. This Creative LED Desk Lamp & Night Light from iTLTL, fits into that category. This portable light can be used both plugged in, or plug free. It arrives with a USB power cord. So, first thing, charge it up. You will have to provide your own adapter.

Let there be light 5

You can use it plugged in, or without, once it’s charged up. It doesn’t take long to charge enough to use it without the USB cord. I received the pale yellow lamp, but they have it in all white, too. It is such a simple light to operate, but it is very useful. I was a tad skeptical when I first pulled it out of the box. It seemed too lightweight, which was equivalent to being cheap, in my mind. I was quite wrong, and I am happy I was. With this light being so lightweight, it can easily be used for camping. If you used your own clip or cord, you could easily hang this from a tree, or from your tent. I weighed the lamp, and it only weighs 0.4lbs. One pound equals 16 ounces, so this light only weighs 6.4 ounces. Definitely light enough to pack out with. Another lightweight aspect of this light, is the power it uses. It only uses 2W of power. You really can’t go wrong with LEDs nowadays.

This light does not get hot to the touch when in use, at all. So, it is safe to have around your children and pets. This is a 3-function light. You can have the base illuminate like a lantern. You can use it as a desk type lamp, and you can dim the light to your desired brightness, in both settings. On the top of the light, there is a turn nob. You just turn it to your desired brightness, that’s it. When used as a lamp, just unhook, and pull up the arm. There is a diffuser on the LEDs, so it is eye friendly. This part gets only slightly warm to the touch. The head of the lamp is actually the light source for the entire light. When the arm is in the down position, the LED side rests flat against the body, which is the lantern portion. It illuminates the entire base as the lantern, when turned on. This design is what keeps it so lightweight, and portable. On the lowest setting the light can last around 40 hours on one charge.

My youngest has a real fear when it comes to the dark. So, we like to be prepared in our home for any power outages. We also, always, travel with a backup light source. We have been in a hotel before, where the power went out for a bit. Boy, did those backup light sources come in handy for us. This one will definitely be one we take on vacation this year. I love that it can stand on its’ own as both a lantern, and a desk lamp. It really makes it so much more useable than a regular flashlight. The neck of the lamp is very bendable, so you can really position task oriented light, really well. But, since it clips into the base firmly, it then becomes a great handle to both hang it, and carry it from. We are overall, realy pleased with this product.

Home finishes by 3D Wall Panels, CSI Wall Panels.

Standard

Whether you are in the middle of a remodel, or just want to freshen up a room, these wall panels from 3D Wall Panels – CSI Wall Panels, will definitely do the trick. We happen to be in the middle of a renovation. The home is from the 1960’s, and definitely needs some modernization. What I love about their wall panels, is that you do not have to only choose an ultra-modern design, but you can choose more neutral designs as well. There is something for everyone. They offer a YouTube video to show you how simple it is to install these panels. You do not need a professional to install, which is always a benefit to the wallet, lol. Although, my husband is a master carpenter and a commercial electrician, so I did have the upper hand. These wall panels are appropriate for home, office, and commercial properties. They come unfinished, and will need to be painted by you. I was given a panel of wall panel choices to choose from. They were made from either one of these choices:

A.      Panel Size: 19.68?x 19.68?inch, 725g

Material: MDF Wood fiber.

Thickness: 3mm on flat areas, Upto 1/2 inch on Dimensional areas.

Features: DIY Product, Eco Friendly, Lightweight & Paintable

Package: 10 panels/Box. Covers 27 sqft/box

Color: Comes only in its Natural wood color

 

B.       Panel Size: 19.68?x 19.68?inch, 275g

Material: Sugarcane fiber (Bagasse) Paper pulp.

Thickness: 1.5mm on flat areas, .50? on Dimension areas.

Features: DIY Product, flexible, Lightweight & Paintable

Package: 12 panels/Box. Covers 32.29 sqft/box

Color: Comes only in its Natural off white color

 

I chose the wood wall look, done in the MDF wood fiber material. The natural finish is more of a light brown. Besides providing the paint to finish, we also had to buy adhesive to mount them to the wall. We repainted our wall before applying the panels. You will want to mount them to a clean, dry surface. These wall panels have an A+ air emissions rating, so they are healthy to have them in home. They are 100% Natural, eco-friendly, and 100% of the wood is from well managed forests. I am really happy with these panels over all. I have insane allergies and asthma, and I have had absolutely no irritation from thee panels at all. The company obviously has pride in their product, and it shows.

I received two boxes of their wall panels. Each box contained 10 panels, which covers approx.. 27sqft each. Make sure you let the panels acclimate to the temperature in your room, where you are doing the install, approx.. 24 hours before you apply them. We let them sit about 4 days, since we were waiting for the weekend. Each panel measures out at 19.68″x 19.68″ inches. However, they are all nominal. The way the come out of the machine, they are not all exactly the same. So, measure and trim before install. That is what we discovered. My husband said this is too be expected, and experiences this with tile all of the time, too. The adhesive we used to install the panels is Power Grab by Loctite. He really liked how well this adhesive worked. The panels held very well, and didn’t need to be taped while the adhesive took hold. Now, besides measuring and trimming your panels, you will also want to sand down the edges. Really check out each panel. Ours had mildly rough edges, from the way they were made. So, sand them down before mounting them. Below are two pictures of a painted sample with rough edges. You can sand the edges down and repaint without difficulty.

Then, make sure you mark your center line when you start your layout. You want to apply your adhesive to the back of the panel, on all of the raised surfaces, then apply them to your wall. Once all of your panels are up, according to your plan, it is time to prime, and then paint your panels. The panels dry fairly quickly, as the boards are quite absorbent.

You may need to re-sand the edges after the primer dries. That is something you will have to decide. We chose a high gloss paint, for that smooth, modern finish. We set up our own spray tent area with visqueen and painters tape. That way our area was protected from any overspray mist. The spray technique really allows you to get that smooth, sleek finish. We used Valspar High Gloss Lacquer in White. This paint really worked well on the panels, and no special sprayer was needed. Since we only did a section on our wall, we trimmed out the panels with premium grade 1x2s. Then we used caulk to fill in the gap. That was also really simple and fairly inexpensive to do. You want to prime and paint the panels after they are installed on the wall. That way you can also make sure any spacing between the panels is also painted, for a smooth finished product.

Our panels were nice and solid, and easy to work with. We did not haVE any damaged panels in our shipment.  We are extremely happy with the finished product. We love it as our background for the electric fireplace we installed. It adds so much style and flare to the room. With the lacquer finish that we chose, it adds a lot of shine to them when the light hits it just so. I can’t wait to hang my new chandelier in the room as the finishing touch. 3D Wall Panels at www.csiwallpanels.com, is definitely worth a visit and a purchase.

Great products for your home from Rhino Goods Inc.

Standard

Bathroom accessories are not always glamorous. More than not, I am sure you never talk about them with people, and forget to think about them when you are out and about shopping. Nonetheless, they are necessary items in our homes. I came across one company that offers some pretty nice quality items, so I decided to share them on my blog. I had the privilege to test out these products:

1.       Premium Bath Tub Mat – Non-Slip & Anti-Bacterial with suction cups – 29 x 16 in. long, White.

2.       Sammy Tub Side Bath Kneeler & Garden Kneeling Pad with Hook: Orange.

3.       Clean Healthy Living 70×71-Inch PEVA Shower Curtain Liner, White.

4.       Clean Healthy Living Roller Shower Curtain Rings – Polished Stainless Steel.

What I noticed about each product, was the quality. Everything was well made. Everything was practical in use, and not a frivolous expenditure. Quality materials were used in production. Nothing was unhealthy to breathe in. The shower curtain liner is mildew-resistant non-toxic PEVA. I love that. No horrible, unhealthy smells, like the normal PVC shower curtain liners give out. It has 12 rustproof metal grommets, so it’s easy to hang and use. To top it off this liner even has three magnets and 4 suction cups to help keep it in place. The shower curtain liner measures out at 70” x 71” in size.

The Shower curtain rings are made out o stainless steel. So, you will not have any rust worries with these. We love this style of curtain ring, and have been using them for years. Each ring has 5 stainless balls on them, and they really let you roll the curtain across the pole. They do not catch, or get stuck, they just keep on rolling. They watch have a full closure on them as well, and you never have to worry about your curtain falling off the hook. That is a pet peeve of mine. These are so durable and well made, they should last for years.

The other two items I received are a shower mat, and a kneeling pad. They are both made with great quality. Mine arrived in perfect condition. One of my children’s friends past away by falling in the shower. It really never occurred to me, until that happened, about what a possibility it could be. This one is a neural color, thick, and covered with tiny suction cups. It holds very well, and did not have any odor upon arrival. It measures 29” long x 16” wide, so it’s a pretty good size. Just remember to pull it up and let it dry after each use, to prolong its lifespan. It does have antibacterial properties to it, as well.  This bath mat is actually eco-friendly to. “It’s made of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE). This microban material is organic, BPA free, and therefore healthier for your family.” I love that! The kneeling pad, I feel can also be used for bleacher seating. It will not just keep your knees from hurting, but your tushy too, lol. I love the large goldfish design. Mine arrived in perfect condition. Kneeling by the tub can be very, very uncomfortable. I love the size, color, and shape of this pad. It’s fun, and endearing. It can be used for so many applications: bathing a little one, gardening, tiling, and home improvement application where you are kneeling, and scooching around, stadium seating, picnic benches, or any other hard seating surface. It’s covered in a neoprene fabric, which is durable, water resistant, and easy to clean. The underside is done on a thick, vinyl like material. It stays put when you press weight onto it. I thought it would be slippery, but I tried it on smooth flooring, in different tests, and it stays put with weight pressing down on it, even just one foot. It has a nylon webbing carry handle. It has a Velcro closure on it, so you could strap it to your towel rack, or stroller, if needed. This mat measures out at 13 ½” long and 12 ½” wide. It’s really cute!

Overall, I am really happy with this company’s products. They are made to be healthier for you, and to last. They are also competitively priced.

I received these items at a discount. I was under no obligation to leave my unbiased and honest review.

These are spoontacular! – Hiware’s 12-piece 18/10 Stainless Steel Teaspoon

Standard

In my home, small forks and spoons seem to disappear all by themselves, lol. I swear, when my boys were younger, when they threw out the trash from their plates, they threw out their cutlery as well. Also, now that one son is older, but lives at home, and my husband, both work on the road. They bring a lot of food with them. Sometimes, the cutlery takes their sweet time coming back home, lol. I never need additional tableware sets, but it’s nice to have extra spoons and forks.

I especially need extra spoons. Since I have such a unique diet, because of my insane food allergies, I use spoons a lot. I eat a lot of organic Greek yogurt, and you need a spoon to do so. So, I hate seeing a shortage in my drawer when I go to get one. It is so annoying.

spoons-9

That, and when you have company over, you always need extra spoons. When coffee is served, and when dessert is served, you give them a spoon. So, when I saw this set of 12 teaspoons, I was thrilled. I am so glad they arrived as nice as they looked online. I hate when you think something is going to be a nice quality, and it arrives as a piece of junk. Money does not grow on trees, and I hate feeling like I was ripped off. These spoons are a little larger than the teaspoons I have now, but not as large as our regular spoons but they are close. I like that they are this size; it makes them highly usable across the board. They are constructed out of 18/10 Stainless steel. They didn’t skimp on materials, either. For me, they are not bendy, but for a man on a mission, I’m sure he could bend the spoons in half, lol. Regular usage, not bendy, and that’s the important part. The look is minimalist. There is beauty in simplicity, and it works for these spoons. It also lets them be used with your regular tableware set. I would not feel funny at all about serving a coffee with one of these spoons, while they had used my regular set with their dinner. These spoons measure out at 6 ¾”, so a very good size. Overall, I am thrilled with these spoons. They are definitely the answer to my spoon problem. Their quality is wonderful, and I have no complaints.
