Light It Outside Lights
Last night I put up my suitcase and breathed a sigh of relief. Three trips in a matter of six weeks is enough to make me long to eat a sandwich at home and sleep in my own bed. But the benefits of these trips outweigh the inconveniences of living out of a suitcase and chasing a connecting flight, by a long shot. I love looking at new products and wondering how much it might make my life easier and yours too.
Do you take out the trash late like I do? My house has an alleyway, and the street light is far away, so it’s dark. It would be nice to have a light that would come on and light my way. Something easy to install that didn’t require an electrician? Light It Wireless Porch Light is the answer. It is a LED that is ultra bright, glare-free and it has a wide beam, just like a flood light. I love the installation. All you need is a screwdriver and the two screws that come with the light. Just slide the backplate off, and then you can use it for placement. Light It Wireless Porch Light requires four C batteries, and it is motion activated and doesn’t stay on constantly so your batteries should last a long time.
Light It is excellent for dark alleys, decks, sheds, porches, and fences anywhere you need light outdoors for your safety. If you don’t think that you can attach Light It with the screws, Velcro makes an extreme outdoor strip that will hold up to 15lbs and is weatherproof. The Light It is completely weatherproof, adjustable and comes in three colors. Light It retails for under $25 add your batteries and you can have a light source for $30.

Question: I enjoy reading your weekly home improvement column in the Houston Chronicle. I have a dilemma and hope you can provide me with some advice on how to resolve it. The problem started with Harvey when our home was flooded for approximately 15-18 hours. As a result, the majority of the red bricks on the front and back porch have a chalky white appearance. I've had both porches power-washed twice with little to no result. I was wondering if there is a product out there that can restore the brick to its original color.
Question: I have a stucco house which has developed a couple of 15-inch vertical cracks at two corners of the house. What can I do to seal the cracks? Thanks
Question: I inherited a box of vintage stainless. It was packed up for years and it is so dirty and stained. I am willing to polish, but which polish will be easier? And is there a polish that is not stinky? Some of the polishes have an awful smell.
