Seventh Generation Granite and Stone Cleaner, 18 Fl Oz
Seventh Generation Granite and Stone Cleaner, 18 Fl Oz
Price: $4.49

4.0 out of 5 stars smells great and works!, October 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
i'm really a 'green' person, but this stuff could make me a convert... it's basically coconut oil with a host of other ingredients (maybe some not so 'green'?)...

but it smells great and gets the kitchen surfaces clean! i used it on glossy formica and it worked just fine

the only beef i have might be with the price - a bit pricey for only 12 oz of cleaner - but should last for a while?

you will like the smell of this though - much better than Windex, trust me!

4.0 out of 5 stars easy to use, works!, October 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
this is a one-shot kit you can use to remove fogging from multiple headlights - if you have a buddy with a car who needs to de-fog his lamps, invite him over - this kit should handle at least four headlights...

i have a 2011 Nissan, and believe it or not, fogging started to appear on *one* headlight's upper left quadrant (the sun is brutal 'round these parts, so i'm not incredulous)...

i wet a rag, doffed the gloves, then sanded lightly on a wetted portion of the headlight, then wiped clean and dried... tore open the packet of 'Wipe New,' and swiped the affected area ONCE (according to the directions) - the lens appeared crystal clear!

this is nasty stuff though, so DON'T get it on your car's paint job - anywhere!

the downside is that the product instructions caution to a) do this job protected from the elements and b) allow to dry protected for 24 hours... for you folks without a garage, this may mean an overnight parking garage cost

considering the reasonable cost of this kit, the results are worth it - and if you live in a state and have to face a passing inspection, this kit will pay for itself (too bad it doesn't work on fogged windshields on vintage cars)

4.0 out of 5 stars it works, October 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
i have a 2011 Nissan with a bit of rubber/plastic trim at the liftgate - in a little over 3 years the surface has chalked out - looks pretty bad...

so i took this kit, which comes with a pair of dumb plastic food-handler-type gloves (threw them away and used my nitrile garage/workshop gloves), and sliced a wedge off the included black sponge - this allowed me to apply the trim coating into the ribbed detail of the liftgate trim...

it took 3 coats, but i was finally rewarded with a nice surface - it looks a bit 'wet' but definitely better that the whitened chalking appearance

we'll see how long this stuff lasts! i REALLY liked the companion Turtlewax Jet Black for tires - put two coats on and tires still look great more than a month later!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chow now, Meow!, October 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Amazon requires me to review this product, but it really should be my polydactyl cat, Cyrus, reviewing this chow. He has seven toes on his right front paw, and six toes on his left front paw, which qualifies him for an extra signing bonus as a Yankee shortstop.

The 5 lb. bag arrived safe and secure. Meow one star! It also arrived crisp and fresh, thanks to the great tyvek-like bag material, so unlike the triple-layer paper found on most feline feed bags. Meow two stars!

Also nice is the 21st Century press-and-seal seal for the bag, something most feline feed manufacturers seem to have overlooked in their haste to bilk their furry customers nowadays. Meow three stars!

Finally, there's the smell and taste. Simply divine! Scrumptious! Crunchy with a crisp afterbite and a 10-minute face-cleaning. Setting and serving this chow has not been a catastrophe - it was a cataclysmic devouring, resulting in excess chow littering the feed area - Cyrus *loved* it! Meow two stars!

If Cyrus is happy, I'm happy. And that's what counts. Good feed. Get it.


Safety Razor Travel Kit with Scissors and Case
Safety Razor Travel Kit with Scissors and Case

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this kit for the handle - FABULOUS!, October 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased this kit primarily for the razor's handle - it is absolutely one of the better-made DE travel razor handles on the market (there are much pricier ones, such as Above the Tie and Weber bulldogs, vintage, the Maggard MR8 stainless 90mm handle [bargain!], and the iKon 67mm stainless 'Tuckaway' [bargain!])

The obvious comparison for this kit would be to the same-priced Parker A1R - i have both, and i have to say that i prefer this kit. The kit comes wrapped in plastic in a small cardboard box, all unmarked except for the bottom of the large portion of the two-part handle, engraved with the word 'Pearl.' All razor parts are wrapped.

There was a small 5-blade pack of 'Tiger' razorblades. All components of the kit appear to be made in India. The razor head is unmarked, unlike the Parker A1R, which has the word 'India' underneath.

Finish and plating on the handle - the shining star of this package - is superlative. The head has the typical fit and finish of its ilk, but was just as good as my Parkers and Merkur 500. However, the head i received in my travel kit held my Derby blade perfectly, with little pre-tightening alignment required (for comparison, no such alignment is required on the made-in-the-USA stainless Weber polished head - drop in the blade and tighten the handle with confidence - excellent tolerance and machining).

The pair of scissors will do an exacting job of trimming hair to complete your tonsorial. They are extremely sharp and pointed - a good thing - if a bit wobbly. As others have mentioned, keep the tubing for safety.

The entire package weighs about 7 ounces. The razor has a nice 108-gram heft, and the handle - the absolute best part of the kit - is 3 and 3/4" long - great for a travel razor!

The shave? Aggressive! You can tell just by looking at the gap. However, the shave was good, BBS after two passes. And unlike the Parker A1R's head, which has bitten me every time i've used it (6X), there was no spilled blood on my maiden voyage with the razor.

A great kit at a great price with a fabulous handle (wish i could buy the handle separately - i'd get a couple). 5 stars, baby!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE REAL DEAL! Heavy Cotton! Full Size! MADE IN USA!, October 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Folks, this is the REAL DEAL! No cheap CHICOM see-thru fabric, cheap screen printing, fall-apart after one wash bandana made for pinheads!

Nosireebob! This is the real deal and a good size bandana, big enough for a real cowpoke or biker skull! Yeehaw!

Purchased this for use during the upcoming chilly weather. The bandana is big enough (22") to wrap around my fat head, and with a nice skull jaw over the chinny chin chin, will also help keep my neck warm from the rush of cold air.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably easy Two button-press Mac OS X Setup!, October 9, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
After using computers and printers for nearly 30 years, I have to say that setting up and using this printer is by far, the easiest hardware configuration task i've ever performed. No cable to connect. No configuration or printing software to download.

How so?

I did it with two presses of one finger!

Unpacked the printer, removed tape, installed toner cart, plugged in printer, turned it on.

Setup:

1. Pressed the 'Wifi Protected Setup' button on the side of my Verizon wifi router.

2. Pressed the wifi button on the front of the printer.

Done!

The printer connected to the router and was assigned an IP address. No entry of a long encrypted key string. The printer was automagically identified by my OS X Mavericks iMac as a 'Brother DCP-L2540DW' printer. Selecting the printer from a print dialog (i tested printing a page from Firefox) caused OS X to display a 'Configuring printer' status dialog, then a full Print dialog with all the options available to this high-speed black and white laser printer.

Simply unbelievable! FIVE STARS to Brother and Apple (and Verizon) for this hardware/software collaboration!


OXO Good Grips Perfect Cut Twine Dispenser

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile and Handy with TWO cutting blades!, October 7, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
a very nice dispenser... although not readily apparent from its picture, there are actually TWO cutting blades for this twine dispenser!

opening requires a simple twist and lift of the translucent cap - remove the plastic wrap, then feed the twine from the top thru the bottom - a quick pull-up cuts the string!

the attached cutter is removable and handy so you don't have to search for a pair of scissors - but it also works as an auxiliary cutting blade when installed on the dispenser - in other words, you can pull a length of twine, then press *down* on the cutting blade - versatile!

with 300 feet of twine, this dispenser should last for quite a while - not big enough for commercial use, but to tie up some roasts, this item will work for a couple years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tougher, Thicker than Glad and Smell Better!, October 6, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm glad these are better than Glad! These bags have a great smell - compared to Glad's 'Odor Shield' lavender scent, these Arm and Hammer 'clean burst' bags are literally a breath of fresh air. The Glad bags have a cloying, sickening smell to me, so now these Hefty bags are the perfect replacement.

I also like the strength of the bags, and the texture of their surfaces. The drawstring also seems 'heftier' than the Glads. The Heftys are also 1.0 mil vs 0.78 mil of the Glads! Tougher bags!

Now my go-to kitchen bags.
