Bird or Animal Decorative Ceramic Mugs with Lids for Vehicle Beverage Holders

by Barbara 10. April 2014 07:59

Question about decorative ceramic mugs with lids that fit in car beverage holders.

Q: "Do you sell ceramic beverage mugs that fit into car beverage holders? I prefer ceramic or stoneware. Coffee seems to taste better than from a plastic mug. My wife and I are animal and bird lovers so decorative ones would be better and great gifts for friends. Thanks. Jim."

Answer: Safe Home has two styles, the more typical one that is cylindrical on the bottom and others that slim down to fit into the beverage holder.

The two primary brands are American Expedition and Evergreen Enterprises. These are 16 ounce or 17 ounce mugs. Both have lids so sipping as you travel is easier and the lid helps to keep the beverage hot (or cold) as you desire.

Among the more popular ones are:

Have fun choosing a travel cup. Remember your wife or best friend who travels with you.

Thanks for the question.

Sincerely, Barbara

750 Watt ECO-SAVE Ceramic Electric Heaters Allow Efficent Small Area Heating Due to Compact Size

Question about the ECO-Save Ceramic Electric Heaters.

Q: "What makes this electric space heater better than a Cozy Legs panel for an office area?"Thanks. Sara

Answer: The Cozy Legs is great for under desk heating. It is, however, a radiant heating panel. So there is no fan. Also for best use, you need a stand. So moving it is somewhat awkward.

The ECO-Save Portable Electric Heater Features Include:

  • Energy Saving
  • Low wattage
  • Reduced fire risk
  • Keeps you warm for less $$
  • Safety tip-over shut off protection
  • Variable speed fan
  • Adjustable thermostat
  • Ceramic Heating Element
  • Voltage: 120V 60Hz
  • Power: 750W
  • Weight: 4.63lbs
  • Dimensions: 8.86"x8.86"x12.4", 11” H x 7.5” Diameter
  • ETL Listed.
  • Warranty: 6 months by manufacturer
Another advantage is that you can use two of these in the same area as a single 1500 Watt heater and get better heating coverage.

Thanks for your question. Please contact us if you are interested in a quantity purchase.

Sincerely,
Barbara

Dr. Frog Croaks When House Plants Need Water or Use Drip Irrigation Plant Sitters

Question about plant moisture sensors.

Q: "Do you sell any products that sense when a plant needs to be watered? I seem to either forget to water my African violets or over water them. Thanks. Sue"

Answer: Safe Home does sell an electronic moisture sensor for plants. This product is called Dr. Frog.Doctor Frog Water Alarm, Electronic Plant Moisture Meter uses twin metal probes that are attached to an electronic moisture sensor. Although water resistant, Dr Frog™ must be removed when you water your plant. Re-insert afterwards. Avoid immersing Doctor Frog™ in water even briefly. Battery life is up to 1 year with normal use. Of course, if you ignore Dr. Frog's alarm, the batteries ( two G10 batteries) will not last very long. There is a light sensor so Dr. Frog won't wake you up at night. Otherwise he will croak for 3 seconds every 10 seconds. 6 month limited manufacturer's warranty. As seen on HGTV's "I Want That."

Other options for keeping your plants adequately watered include:

  • Cobra Co Plant Sitter Water System, Indoor or Outdoor UseCeramic moisture sensor releases drip irrigation to your house plants or outdoor deck plants whether you are home or away.

For the average sized plant, the CobraCo Plant Sitter provides drip irrigation as needed to water plants for up to 3 weeks. Great for the elderly or invalids who can enjoy plants without the fuss of watering. No need for a house sitter for short vacations! For longer ones, your house sitter needs to refill only once per week or every second week.
  • CobraCo Plant Sitter Terra Cotta Replacement Ceramic Watering Sensors that work with any container of water.Drip irrigation for house plants. Plant sits up to 3 weeks.
