For practically nothing. This little home tile installation and repair kit has a 5-3/4" grout saw with a 1-1/8" business end, a 4-3/4" long spreader/scraper/squeegee, a 4-3/4” long trowel with square and v-notched sides, and a sponge for grout cleanup. Best for working with tiles 8” square or smaller. Don’t go into the bathroom without it.
You need a dehumidistat to sense the relative humidity and turn on a fan or whatever dehumidifies you. This one is from Broan-NuTone and is rated for up to a 10A load at 120VAC and 5A at 240VAC but can be used with a low-voltage (24V or less) fan. Use the clearly marked, easy-to-use dial to set your humidity anywhere from 20 to 80 percent, with full on and off settings as well. Housing measures 4-1/2” x 2-3/4” x 1-1/2” with keyed 5/32” mounting holes. Comes with mounting hardware, Lo-V terminals and wiring instructions. Made in Canada by humid Canadians. Broan #DH100W.
Tote it proudly in one of these clear vinyl tote bags. Measure approx 12” x 10” x 3-1/2” when expanded. Seamed with purple nylon trim and handles, and have a double-snap closure around a set of grommets in case you want to decorate them with ribbon ties and use them as party favors/door prizes/gift bags.
This bristly giant came to us as a “pot brush” meant for scrubbing out those gigantic pots in commercial kitchens, but we like it as a foot-scrubber for really mean dudes, a barnacle brush for your yacht, a way to scrub BBQ-sauce stains off the deck, or a back-scratcher for your Galapagos tortoise. In white plastic and nylon, it measures 19” long with contoured grips for two hands and a 4” x 3-3/4” pad with tough bristles.
Actually it means polyvinyl chloride, but PVC tape is the choice when you need a non-corrosive pipe wrap or something similar. Peels clean, conforms to awkward shapes, is water resistant and flame retardant. Also stretchy. Our each is (150) feet of 3/4” wide red PVC tape on a 1-1/2” core.
This bright headlamp has a 45-lumen LED (which is bright!), and comes with an elastic strap to put it on your noggin when you’re biking, spelunking, mining coal or fixing that leaky pipe under the sink. Measures 3” x 2-1/2” x 2-1/4” with a pivoting mount. In orange and black plastic, and you add (3) “AAA” batteries.
Not a bucket for giant popcorn, which doesn’t exist (yet), but a giant BPA-free plastic bucket, 8” tall x 7-3/4” dia, that you’re supposed to put popcorn in, which we know because it says “POPCORN” on the side, along with a popcorn graphic background. We’re putting chips in ours because we’re like that.
Handy little clip-on LED outdoor fixture with (3) white LEDs is powered by a solar cell and NiCd battery on top. Turns itself on at dusk, off at dawn. Housing measures 4-3/4” dia x 2-3/8” tall and attaches to a 1” wide padded spring clamp for mounting. Clamp is also drilled on both arms for more permanent mounting.
Faux full-sleeve tattoos at a tiny fraction of the cost of the real thing, not to mention the easy, two-second removal. Our temp tats are a stretchy 16” long and 3-1/4” wide in lightweight Lycra® and are very realistic at even close range. We’ll pick one (although we recommend getting two for obvious reasons) from a vast array of patterns and themes, all guaranteed to drop Mom onto the fainting couch at first sight. They end at the wrist, but feel free to ink LOVE and AS&S on your knuckles with one of our markers.
