Purchased this product from Costco since I heard it advertised on the radio and how well it works. I applied it per directions as to mix and mopped it to my composite deck that had mildew. After a late summer and fall season of rain, about 2-1/2 months worth, it cleaned to like new. I Also used it on vinyl siding with a garden sprayer. My north facing siding here in Huntley Ilinois is subjected to strong winds and had become extremely dirty. Again after 2-1/2 months it came out like new siding. Power washing is a no no as it will destroy the finish and this is why I used Wet and Forget. I can't understand the reported issues of not working since I have over three years of use in various applications, have found it to be a real time and money saver that has worked just fantastic for me.
This is a strong anthology of essays that I enjoyed overall. All the essays were short enough to be read in one sitting, which is my preferred way for reading essays. There are a few trusty big name crowd-pleasers in the mix -- Malcolm Gladwell with his cogent, well-argued piece on social status and immigration; Zadie Smith's drifting, whimsical meditation on Manhattan; David Sedaris' self-deprecating tale of enslavement to Fitbit. My personal favorite goes to Solonit's "Arrival Gates," a lyrical essay penned at the Japanese shrime Fushimi Inari-taisha. I am not a stranger to Solonit's prolific writings, many of which lyrical and travel-related, but this essay struck a particular chord with me, its peaceful reverence and acceptance had a lulling, entrancing draw, creating Solonit's own trance, lost in the the presence of time. There are others, who despite their longstanding fame, are new voices to me -- Roger Angell's hugely entertaining essay "This Old Man" has one of the most enduring, memorable opening voice that I can recall. My only complaint, which is also voiced by other readers, is that this collection is heavy on the topic of aging and mortality. This perhaps reflect the corpus of work in 2015, with the aging of the boomer population, and the noteworthy works of writers like Hitchens and Didion circling the imminent passing of life. But as a celebration of the best essays of our time, I wished for a little optimism, a little more color and diversity
