DAP Eclipse Rapid Wall Repair Patch

With three young kids in the house, our walls consistently take a beating and seeing “fix the hole in the drywall” on my honey-do list used to be such a bummer for me since it was usually messy and time consuming. Then I found these Eclipse Rapid Wall Repair Patches. These patches are a unique and innovative drywall repair solution that eliminates the mess and lets you paint immediately & finish in minutes instead of hours. There is no spackling, sanding or tools required! The patches come in 2″, 4″, or 6″ options, making them perfect for nail holes or doorknob damage. They also won’t peel or lose adhesion over time. In fact, the 4″ patch is 2X’s stronger than the drywall itself and the 6″ patch is a whopping 4X’s stronger! Click here to purchase from Amazon.

A Santa Fe Dehumidifier is the perfect solution to rid your home of any of those damp and musty environments. Santa Fe’s free-standing and whole-house dehumidifiers offer superior air filtration, which is even more important than ever, as we’re spending time at home. Let’s just say that after a year of COVID, we have a whole new appreciation for our basement. The Sana Fe free-standing dehumidifier has made it even more comfortable and enjoyable. Another place we really appreciate the Sante Fe dehumidifier is in our home gym! Excess moisture builds up from heaving breathing and sweating, making our gym feel heavy (and stinky). But now that the moisture is properly controlled by the dehumidifier, our workouts are much more comfortable and odor-free! MERV-13 filters are standard, and are scientifically proven to eliminate dust mites, mold or other problems caused by too much moisture in the air. This filtration is more than 4 times more effective any other competitor.
