A hand-held, high-powered leaf blower can really help you maintain your landscape. But it's a real pain when your leaf blower stops working and needs repair, especially if you're trying to get the fall leaves up off the lawn, out of your yard, and out to the street for pick up. When my leaf blower stopped working last fall, I was thinking it was going to cost me at least $100 plus all the time finding a repair shop and waiting to get it fixed. Luckily, I found a great online resource that helped me get my gas-powered leaf blower back up and running in about 5 minutes for nothing.
I recently bought an iRobot Braava Jet and I love it. My 3 year old calls it the "Robot Mop". I decided to review it here for myHomeUpgrades.com.
We already had a Roomba vacuum, and it does a great job picking up dirt and dust. But we've got a ceramic tile kitchen floor and hardwood floors everywhere else. We've also got a toddler and a newborn. And I was getting tired of mopping the kitchen floor and cleaning the hardwoods with my Shark steam mop. I still use the steam mop for spot cleaning. But for routine floor cleaning, the Robot Mop does a better job!
Car trouble, but don't have money to burn at a dealership or all day to waste at the repair shop across town? A mobile mechanic who comes to your home might be your best solution! This is the type of home service that can make your life better. So, need new brakes, a bad wheel bearing replaced, or even just a tune up? Turns out you can have these and other types of car repairs done at your own home or office by a mobile mechanic. It can be much more convenient and a whole lot cheaper than other alternatives.
It was a long time ago, way before the Weber iGrill2 came along, when I first heard about probe thermometers. It was on Alton Brown's cooking show, "Good Eats", when he recommended probe thermometers. I've been using them ever since, and I've been through lots of them, expensive ones, cheap ones, and even remote control ones. But the best one I've had so far has been and continues to be the iGrill2. I've been personally using it for over a year. It's a great Bluetooth probe thermometer for grilling, smoking, or even roasting or baking in your oven. I use it all the time, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
