I wish I’d purchased this sooner. It works great and was easy to install. I held it up against the wall, placed a small level on top to ensure it was straight, used a pencil to mark the center of each screw hole, installed anchors, and screwed in. It gives me warm fuzzy feelings when I see it because everything looks so organized!

UPDATE 10/31/14 Ordered another pack of two panels as I could not wait for delivery time at other store. Panels arrived in perfect shape this time despite the packing being torn on the larger sides but the panels were unscathed.

Picking out the perfect steam mop for your home isn’t so easy. With the wide variety of options on the market, you need to know what to look for. How large should the reservoir be? Should steam settings be adjustable? Which extras make a difference and which are unnecessary? Overwhelmed already?

Lightweight, sturdy and easy to stow away in smaller cupboards, the Russell Hobbs RHMSM300 is an ideal handheld cleaner for small jobs and tight budgets. It transforms into a steam mop with the addition of a tubular handle and floor-head, but its modest steam levels are better suited to handheld mode, or for quickly mopping over freshly vacuumed hard floors.

Some spills were almost gone after two passes of the steam mop; others, such as mustard, clung tenaciously. We judged two models very good overall in cleaning up the small individual messes. The rest were middling.

There are a few more things to know when deciding if this product is right for you. The steam produced by these mops is quite hot, enough that you have to wait a good 3 to 5 minutes before you can replace a pad. Using them for more than a few minutes in a closed room makes the room itself uncomfortable. When you turn off a steam mop, it emits steam for sometimes 30 seconds more, so you have to find somewhere to raise or remove the still-hot, moist mop or you’re almost certain to damage your floor.

To assemble the long garage wall framing components we will start with the 2 x 4 sole plate and top plate by laying lengths of 2 x 4 material side by side on the ground or garage floor. We are going to be marking the location of each stud on them simultaneously with a small framing square that is 1-1/2 wide. It is the same width as a 2 x 4 stud for the purpose of easy markings with a pencil.

Can a gardener have too many trowels? Trowels are hand shovels. Useful tools for those down on your hands and knees digging and planting tasks that require a greater degree of precision than a shovel or spade. They come in handy for planting bulbs, transplanting seedlings, turning over soil, and weeding small areas between plants. Trowel blades come in several widths. Narrow blades work well for digging in hard-packed soil, while wide blades have the capacity to move more dirt quickly. A good trowel will have a solid steel blade and a handle with a comfortable grip.

It’s a sturdy hand broom. I use it for my fireplace. The bristles don’t flake off, and it sweeps well. The corn isn’t inclined to burn when brushing ash and coal back into the fireplace. It’s bigger than the ones i used to get, and i was hoping it was smaller. Also, they shouldn’t cost what they do…i remember buying them at Ace for a couple bux back in the day, but i guess that’s the classic old timer’s complaint.

The one I got was green – it was horribly stiff and the corn bristles were very thick. A good number of individual bristles were bent over and twisted. This is not a good old fashioned broom. I have an old whisk broom from 20 or more years ago so have it to compare to and this is NOT an old time corn whisk broom. If you look at the photo of my old and almost out of commission one – you can see the color difference and the size of the bristles. It really makes a difference in how well it sweeps.

Garage Living has completed thousands of garage renovation projects of varying scope and size. Our clients are always amazed at how quickly we can transform a cluttered or unfinished garage into a clean, organized space.

In a busy garage, you’ll use several types of items that come in boxes-rolls you use as you need.  This section provides solutions to take those items which are generally around for a while, and get them up on the garage wall.

Actually, the Uniform Building Code as far back as 1970 (when I used it to study for the registration exam), did not require a 1-hr fire rated wall or ceiling between a single-family house and an attached garage. In fact, the requirements were virtually the same as today’s International Residential Code.

Use a large terracotta pot filled with sand and a bit of mineral oil to keep your garden tools in it. Alternatively, you may use a different type of oil (such as linseed). This mixture will clean the tools and prevent rust and corrosion. This is a great way to store numerous types of tools.

We also found a lower level of satisfaction with the cleaning performance of steam mops on hardwood floors than with linoleum or tile. Quite a few users say the floor dried with streaks, or that the scrubbing pads included with the steam mop left scratches on their wood floors. Our advice is to be very careful before using a steam mop on any type of hardwood or laminate flooring. However, if you have tile, linoleum, or most of the other common types of flooring, a steam mop may be your new best cleaning friend.

“Now I know products like these get bad raps, and they can be hit or miss with their longevity. That’s all a given. I’ve taken every measure to treat mine tender love and care to hopefully maintain it’s life span. Steamer mops are AWESOME! With this one, I really dig how you can flip the head over to utilize the other side of the cloth. You get two cloths in the box. I bought it because we were housing some friends during Hurricane Irma who had dogs, and literally EVERY square inch of floor had to be cleaned. Too big a job for the ol’ knees, you know? I love the ‘OCD’-perfect results. And I LOVE knowing the floors are sanitized without the use of toxic chemicals. Filling it with water is VERY easy with the li’l plastic, spouted cup. It’s simple to use and heats up quickly, in like a minute or so. I’m way happy with it.”

If sanitizing is your top priority, we recommend you take a look at the Sienna Luna Plus Steam Mop (Est. $170). With the ability to heat up to 212 degrees, it sanitizes your floor more quickly than most steam mops, however you still have to hold it over the area you want to sanitize for a minimum of 8 seconds, but no more than 15 or the very hot steam could damage your floor.

Don’t throw away any screw-top jars you use in the kitchen. Once you’ve collected a few jars, glue or screw their lids to the underside of an existing shelf in your shed using a strong adhesive. You can then fill the jars with your gardening essentials and screw them onto the lids. Plastic jars are ideal because they won’t shatter if accidentally dropped.
