When is the Prime Early Access sale?

Amazon's two-day sales event starts on Tuesday, October 11 and runs through Wednesday, October 12. But, there are plenty of deals available to shop before the big event!

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is a two-day savings event held annually, during which Amazon offers Prime members incredible, often first-of-their-kind deals on popular and Reviewed-approved products, from housewares to tech, small businesses to national brands. We saw huge deals during Amazon Prime Day 2022 on Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13, and the just-announced Prime Early Access sale is expected to have many of the same Prime Day-level markdowns. If you want to get ready for the savings, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Prime right now. You can also find out which Prime membership you qualify for today.

How do I find Prime Early Access deals ahead of time?

Stay right here, because there are already Prime Early Access deals on high-quality tech and user-friendly kitchen items, and we have the inside scoop. For the best—most prime, ahem—deals, you'll have to wait until Tuesday, October 11; for now, they're under lock and key.

You can also trust us here at Reviewed, because, nerds that we are, we know products intimately. When we aren't testing them at home or in our Cambridge, Massachusetts lab, we are researching them online to gauge other consumers' experiences. Basically, we can recommend the best right now of pretty much any product on the home, tech and lifestyle markets. 

Lastly, if you see a deal that's too good to be true, jump on it. Some deals do sell out fairly quickly. These are lightning deals, which are typically live anywhere from one to six hours.

What home and furniture deals can we expect during Prime Early Access?

Amazon has already started rolling out Prime Early Access home deals on furniture, appliances, vacuums and more. You can score deals on the top-rated Bissell SpotClean ProHeat carpet cleaner as well as the iRobot Room i3+ EVO self-emptying robot vacuum. From Casper mattresses to Amazon devices, the deals run the gamut. We will be updating this page in the days leading up to the Prime Early Access event with all the deals for you to shop.

Do I need to be a Prime member to shop Prime Early Access?

Yes. Amazon's new savings event is exclusive to Prime members. If you don't already subscribe, you can sign up for Prime now to access member-only savings, including shopping the two-day sales event, plus perks like a 20% discount for all Prime members on select everyday essentials at Amazon Fresh stores in the U.S.

What should I not buy at Prime Early Access?

You should buy anything that you can find an amazing deal on! However, if you have a larger ticket item that you've been waiting for a price drop on before you buy, think big picture. Know the MSRP ahead of time and previously discounted prices. If it hits that number or lower—go for it! 

Lastly, keep in mind Amazon's own competition—you'll probably find better deals and deeper discounts on Amazon Alexa smart home products than you may on Google Nest.

What Are the Uses of Penetrating Oil Spray?

Penetrating oil spray is a corrosion-resistant lubricant that is useful for several applications. These applications include cleaning, noise reduction, and removing stuck fasteners. The oil also acts as a solvent, making removing the items it's on easier with a soft cloth.

Penetrating oil spray is a corrosion-resistant lubricant

Penetrating oil is a type of corrosion-resistant lubricant. The lubricant penetrates metal surfaces to reduce friction and loosen seized fasteners. The oil comprises a low-viscosity formula that penetrates through small openings. Its properties vary depending on the brand and ingredient list, but they all have the same main purpose: to help mechanical parts stay loose, prevent corrosion, and reduce noise.

Penetrating oils are used in a variety of applications. These products include cleaning fluids that can remove grease, rust, adhesive, and tar. They also act as corrosion inhibitors.

It reduces noise

A penetrating oil spray is a great way to reduce noise, but it also has benefits. They are excellent cleaners and have excellent corrosion-fighting properties. In addition, it is a good way to eliminate grease and oil buildup, which helps reduce noise, heat, and friction.

Penetrating oil sprays can be applied to various surfaces, including cars, boats, and drill bits. They should be applied with even strokes in a well-ventilated area. They should not be applied to very hot or cold surfaces. The sprays are most effective when applied at temperatures between 32 degrees Fahrenheit and 38 degrees Celsius. They should also be applied in areas away from open flames.

It removes stuck fasteners

There are several types of penetrating oil sprays available on the market. For example, you can use a penetrating oil spray on stuck fasteners to loosen them. However, this oil is expensive and may be overkill for some applications. Penetrating oil is designed to penetrate rust and loosen fasteners. There are several commercially available penetrating oil sprays, and you can make your own. The main thing is to choose a product based on real-world experience and reviews of popular shopping websites.

It reduces friction

A penetrating oil spray is a liquid that flows into tiny gaps in metal parts and breaks them free from rust. It is a very thin lubricant that can tolerate high and low temperatures. It displaces moisture and protects metal parts from corrosion while also reducing friction. However, not all metals respond well to penetrating oil. Penetrating oils are usually made from petroleum or base minerals and are not diluted. 

It cleans

Penetrating oil spray is a useful cleaning product that can remove grease, tar, rust, and other particles. It works as a solvent to soften the material, making it easy to remove. It is safe for use on metal, rubber, and plastics.

Penetrating oil spray can be purchased at a store or made at home. The product will dissolve rust and loosen rusted fasteners. However, it doesn't work instantly. You must apply it to the appropriate parts and wait at least 15 minutes for it to take effect. Some penetrating oils may even require an hour to loosen bolts. Penetrating oil sprays come in two different formulations. You can purchase a non-foaming version that doesn't make foam and a foaming version for use on stubborn nuts and bolts.

If you have a multi-level house, you will want to deal with stairs. Install a chair elevate or consider an elevator. With new technological innovation, putting in an elevator does not have to spell an comprehensive renovation. Robin Wilson, a leading qualified on sustainable design and style, says quite a few of her clients repurpose a coat closet or other present space.

2. Get Wise about Lighting

Expanding visibility in your dwelling can support enrich mobility and minimize tripping hazards. "As we age, less light-weight reaches our retinas, so we need additional light-weight in our environment to steer clear of falls and other mishaps," claims Lisa M. Cini, an award-winning senior living layout pro. Include lamps, insert skylights, and maintain window treatments ethereal to enable in plenty of light.


Cini says movement sensor lights is ideal for closets, hallways, and major rooms. LEDs underneath the rest room counter or cupboards and over the lavatory vainness can also offer suitable night time lighting. This smooth lights does not disturb circadian rhythms or slumber styles.


Furthermore, be certain exterior pathways are perfectly-lit by setting up solar lights or motion sensors with spotlights.

Insert step stools with handrails by beds and in closets. Cini recommends a bed that is 21 inches tall as it is the optimum peak for relieve of obtaining in and out. She also states to make absolutely sure the nightstand is available from the mattress and substantial enough to hold glasses, prescription drugs, and drinking water. If the existing heirlooms are not a great fit, go for modern-day overbed or swing-arm tables.

4. Concentration on the Rest room

Authorities spot the most emphasis on retrofitting bathrooms when it comes to building for growing older in spot since this is exactly where slips and falls are most probably to arise. Wilson advises installing a curbless shower with a hand wand. This lets a wheelchair or walker properly into the shower so that elders can bathe alone for for a longer time. "The trick is to guarantee that the flooring slopes a little bit more with a deeper shower pan," Wilson states.


Shower flooring will have to be non-slip and shower knobs must be at wheelchair top. Equally Cini and Walker concur that a hand wand or sprayer is an effortless addition that adds long-time period features. Include grab bars for the shower, rest room, and area above the toilet. "If you choose a tub, select just one that you can get into quickly with a facet-panel doorway," claims Cini.

5. Just take Edge of Technologies

Explore modern huge range of smart home updates to boost the safety and efficiency of your property. "The newest growing old-in-spot know-how, like Shaw Floor's Sole with SensFloor® engineering, can integrate a risk-free and discreet sensor in the flooring, alerting if somebody falls, or it can only convert on the lights at the time feet strike the floor," she claims. Other technologies, like an automated shut-off for the stove, prevent cooking incidents and offer an included layer of security. There are also several clever-household systems that depend on voice instructions, which can aid everything from contacting neighbors to ordering groceries. To age safely and securely and comfortably at residence, embrace wise-house technology to enable simplicity the actual physical and mental stress of daily jobs.

HGTV’s Mina Starsiak Hawk Talks Dangerous Company And Household Renovation Suggestions

What are some have to-haves that a home need to possess when a person is searching for 1 that can be renovated for a profit?

I think which is these a broad answer based on what you might be wanting for. I think the simple remedy that most people today want is that the residence has good bones. The foundation's secure, the roof is great, the framing's very good. It just requirements new flooring, new paint, and perhaps an update in the kitchen and bathtub.

Which is of course ideal simply because it genuinely is all just the aesthetic merchandise, but all those are the ones that everyone's competing for. So, based on your openness to chance in a larger job, you may well have a lot more success finding a assets that has some of these bigger things that you may require to deal with.

What suggestions, if any, can you give homebuyers who are seeking to order a fixer-upper in an up-and-coming neighborhood?

Oh gosh, a pretty, really in-depth residence inspection, but even with that, there is certainly issues that they cannot look at. I had a person in our community get a house, and the very first wintertime, they learned that there was no insulation in the partitions, since your inspector is not going to drill a gap in your exterior wall to test for insulation. They can't do that. So, points like that.

I constantly think it really is really worth checking the big ticket merchandise. So, have a foundation expert, a roofer. And, I generally suggest that persons shell out that $250 and scope the sewer line, since it is really $250 for peace of thoughts. Simply because if it really is not alright, ordinarily at the time you start off poking at matters that are old, they commence slipping apart. So if you might be digging all around in the lawn, if you happen to be executing landscaping, it is pretty probable that your sewer line, if it is really initial, could collapse or it could break up, if you might be grinding up tree roots that are going into it. So, if you will find any problems already current, you can expect to know that and ideally be able to negotiate that into the order in its place of investing wherever from $5,000 to $25,000 to change your sewer line.

When renovating residences in less well known neighborhoods, it truly is only natural that you are going to want to retain costs down in purchase to transform a profit. What are some strategies in which you can do this when continue to achieving unforgettable outcomes?

We do a large amount of mixing of products, so a good deal of the loads in the regions we do the job in are incredibly prolonged and skinny, which suggests the properties are really extensive and skinny, and they're also set extremely near to each and every other. So, the sides of the households we you should not truly see. The entrance, naturally, is every little thing.

The suppress charm is the first impression, so a good deal of the instances we will do a Dutch lap vinyl siding on the side and then combine up our supplies on the front and do a mix of shake or board and batten and definitely get a whole lot of visible interest there and invest a minor more dollars, even though saving a little bit on the siding on the sides of the household because it really is not a little something that is likely to be component of the façade of the property truly, just purely by exactly where they sit on the good deal.

How can I make the exterior of my dwelling appear high-priced?

Israel belatedly looks to green construction for concrete fix to polluting buildings

Israel’s commitment to reducing its net carbon emissions to zero by 2050 is changing the way homes and other buildings are being constructed, accelerating a shift away from how structures have gone up until now.

In March 2022, green building standards meant to reduce emissions during and after construction became mandatory for all building projects in Israel.

In July, the Energy Ministry and the Israel Green Building Council announced that eight local authorities had been selected for training in green building techniques.

They also announced that new housing would have to provide potential buyers with an energy efficiency rating, such as is already done with most large appliances.

The moves are typical of the carrot-and-stick approach that countries and cities are using around the world to push for greater sustainability in many areas, including construction.

Cities are major contributors to carbon pollution. They are responsible for upwards of 70% of global emissions, according to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the majority of that comes through building and operating structures, experts say. Greening that process will need to be a major priority for Israeli policymakers if the country is serious about reaching its 2050 goals, according to experts.

Construction work in Tel Aviv, August 2022 (Danielle Nagler)

“The greenest building is the one that already exists,” Carl Elefante, former president of the American Institute of Architects, famously said.

He might have added that the next best thing is a building that works through every aspect of the construction process to reduce its carbon footprint, from its project management and waste products to using designs and materials that minimize the energy it will use through its lifetime.

To qualify as a green building, a structure needs to be assessed from a variety of vantage points and meet certain standards. Both construction and occupancy phases need to be designed to manage energy, water, and other materials efficiently while making use of technologies that minimize emissions and harm to the environment. Much of the burden falls on developers, though occupants often have a role as well, especially in lowering energy inputs.

The process usually goes well beyond cosmetic features, such as so-called green walls – vertical sheets of plants on the outside of buildings, though they do have some impact.  Increasingly fashionable in big cities, green walls play a role in absorbing carbon dioxide and in helping to manage temperatures and improve air quality. But the level of impact remains under debate, while there is general agreement that less visible measures, such as increasing efficiency, make a more significant difference.

Nationwide, only 85 structures are LEED-certified by the US Green Building Council, considered the global standard for sustainable building. In Jerusalem, the country’s most populous city, only two have earned the rating (including the building housing The Times of Israel offices).

Israel’s Environmental Protection Ministry has certified another 450 buildings as meeting sustainability standards. According to the ministry, as of 2020, another 1,000 buildings were in the certification process.

Ziv Shor, who heads the Israeli branch of international commercial real estate giant JLL, says the country is in a transitional phase when it comes to green building.

In the past “developers did not understand why they should change,” said Shor. “Energy efficiency and minimal carbon footprint are now becoming the number one priority for people and for occupiers [of commercial buildings], and so in turn it becomes the priority for developers.”

Shor believes that the real estate management sector can lead the way by making sure the construction industry delivers buildings that businesses want.

He is seeing commercial occupants happy to pay a premium — up to 10% above regular commercial rents — for sustainable building. A green building can in turn deliver savings of 20% to 40% in building operating costs through its lifetime, with those numbers expected to rise as resources grow scarcer and technologies more efficient.

In the 1950s, Israel led the world in solar power production, largely because it needed to generate energy independent of the Arab world. The country’s shift to tech has produced a fair number of startups aiming to bring green solutions to various sectors.

Among the young Israeli companies with the potential to make the biggest impact is ECOncrete, which focuses on creating sustainable concrete for undersea or shoreline applications that are designed to support marine environments rather than harm them.

The company says it has already taken on 40 projects in 11 countries, adapting its product to each location’s unique biological makeup in order to support local marine fauna and flora.

Concrete is the most polluting element of the construction process, accounting for some 8 percent of carbon emissions worldwide. Over 4 billion tons of cement, which is mixed with water and aggregates to create concrete, are produced each year.

But concrete — cheap, durable, and long-lasting — is also vastly important for the construction industry, providing housing for about 70 percent of the world’s population.

ECOncrete says its material can cut carbon output by up to 70% compared to traditional cement. The company’s admixture mostly replaces clinker — a gravelly substance that is a key ingredient in cement and the main source of emissions in concrete — with more sustainable and recycled materials such as slag cement or fly ash, though the manufacture of those materials is known to pollute as well.

On land, Criaterra claims to slash energy usage by 90% compared to traditional manufacturing by replacing kiln-fired cement and ceramics with what it says are 100% natural materials. The company is focusing on wall tiles for interiors, but also plans to branch out into masonry.

Ramat Gan-based Green Vibe says it reduces concrete waste in the construction process by up to 50%. Rather than re-inventing concrete, Green Vibe does this by allowing builders to maximize efficiency, using sensors, advanced data analysis and other tools across the lifetime of major projects.

Urecsys, based at the Hebrew University, says it can reduce exposure to hazardous urban air pollutants within buildings by utilizing its unique modeling of air pollution via machine learning algorithms.

Urecsys claims to reduce the penetration of hazardous urban air pollution into office buildings by a huge percentage by analyzing pollutants in the air and making data-driven predictions, which are then fed into a building’s central ventilation system to allow only clean air in. The system is also touted as a substantial energy-saver, reducing a building’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Pre-fabricated construction has been touted as more sustainable than traditional building due to efficiency savings and other environment-friendly benefits over a structure’s lifetime. While Israel lags in modular construction, the country’s largest developer, Tidhar, is experimenting with building bathroom pods entirely off-site and then lifting them into position within apartments.

The company has installed 180 so far but is aiming for 1,000 units across its Israeli projects by the end of this year and at least a doubling of factory capacity in 2023.

For homeowners or renters looking to reduce their carbon footprint on their own, HomeBiogas has developed a build-it-yourself system that turns kitchen waste and livestock manure into clean cooking gas for up to three meals a day, plus an extra 10 liters of clean natural liquid fertilizer. The high-tech composting firm, which is already listed on the Tel Aviv stock exchange, boasts that it has already mitigated 58,506 tons of CO₂ through the use of its technology.

The key to successful sustainability is demand — which is already happening in the office market, with international tenants in particular demanding high environmental standards for the buildings they occupy, according to Shor at JLL.

Developers know what they need to deliver for these kinds of tenants and are already changing they way they do things to accommodate them.

Hotel guests, on the other hand, are less likely to demand concrete efficiency standards and the like, but some hotels are also using environmentally friendly construction, allowing visitors to reduce their carbon footprint even if away from home. Etic hotels, which lists environmentally friendly properties for short-term stays, identifies 136 sustainable hotels in Israel.

In the Negev, Six Senses Shaharut boasts of being Israel’s first LEED certified hotel.

While the hotel is designed to blend aesthetically into the desert landscape, it also boasts a 25% reduction in energy consumption compared to a traditional hotel of a similar size. The hotel composts food waste to feed the organic garden which partially supplies the kitchen, bottles water on site to avoid plastic, donates used cooking oil to make biodiesel in the community, and uses a palm grove to absorb 100% of the treated wastewater on site.

Similarly, one of Isrotel’s more recent properties, Mitzpe Hayamim, started its eco-friendly existence by renovating an existing hotel building.

While focusing on delivering a luxury holiday experience, it draws on the orchards, fields of herbs, livestock farm, dairy and organic farm that surround it to supply the hotel restaurants with fresh seasonal ingredients with minimal travel involved. The spa uses natural oils gathered from the Mitzpe Hayamim farm.

Despite the advances, Shor noted that the sustainable building space in Israel is “not yet a mature market.”

One major issue: scalability. While Israelis have proven adept at creating tech solutions via easily adaptable and expandable software, green building requires not just going green, but also constructing actual buildings.

Ann Demeulemeester Turns Her Concentrate to Household furniture

Ann Demeulemeester is a designer much more anxious with projecting a vision, than with the ultimate type that it usually takes. Although finest-regarded for her work in fashion, she segued into that pathway getting studied fine art. It was during this time that her creative imagination grew to become concentrated on folks, and in switch, the influence design can have on a particular level. In 1978, and with this in intellect, she went on to research trend style at the Royal Academy of Great Arts in Antwerp until 1981, a period of time in the course of which she grew to become one of the so-named “Antwerp Six” – flanked by Walter Van Beirendonck, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs, and Marina Yee. Collectively, the group put Belgium on the map for fashion – and later on, as a result of her eponymous label, Kortrijk-born Demeulemeester produced her have status for placing out collections that featured exhaustively thought-out cuts, teamed with a perception of darkness. In November 2013, nevertheless, she announced her departure from the trend dwelling, deciding on Margiela alumni Sébastien Meunier as her successor as inventive director.

“I generally concentrated on creating my own vision and style”

In the a long time that adopted, Demeulemeester was equipped to switch her consideration to the other sides of her creativeness. She took ceramics classes, and in 2019 high-quality-tuned her capabilities into objects for the home for a collaboration with Belgian style label Serax, which culminated in a tableware sequence named “Dé”. Upon its launch, the brand explained the collection as currently being a translation of Demeulemeester’s model on to porcelain, and now, continuing their romance – they are releasing the designer’s very first-ever home furnishings assortment. Crafted together with her daily life-long spouse, photographer Patrick Robyn, Demeulemeester has drawn on her signature bold coloration palette. Throughout the chairs, sofas, tables, lampshades, stools, and ottomans, she has manufactured herself identified through forms and silhouettes – rendering the parts unmistakably hers. A sense of duality operates throughout the collection – darkness and lightness, shadows and highlights, textures and smoothness. Every piece presents a lesson in tactility, and the elements utilized in the course of are intended to be “seductive”, from the linen to the oak, the wool, the velvet, and the canvas.

The approach started when Belgium went into lockdown in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. The pair, stuck at residence, grew to become acutely informed of their environment. “We have usually felt a solid affinity with furnishings, and the lockdown was the great timing to perform on our have household furniture assortment,” she tells Hypebeast. “We manufactured what we would adore to have, and following our very own eyesight, we felt free of charge to develop without the need of references.” An significant distinction for the pair, nevertheless, was to develop something that felt meaningful – “and our get the job done is only significant if we can add some thing to the world that is not there still,” she adds.

According to the designer, they commenced by simply developing an impression in their heads. It is in this article where by you truly figure out the synergy involving the pair – offered that they’ve worked in tandem for many years, and have clearly honed a borderline telepathic means to share a inventive vision. “We operate as extended as necessary to materialize [the idea in our heads],” Demeulemeester claims. “We commenced by producing sort experiments and maquettes for every single piece, created our individual materials and colours with Belgian weavers, labored with distinctive woods, and made all the initial prototypes”. Then, Serax arrived in to transform the parts into a practical, sellable assortment – enabling the duo to get to grips with the production procedure and see their concepts turn out to be a actuality. “Together we identified a way to deliver this collection into the entire world,” she claims. “We share the identical feeling of exhilaration.”

“It’s enjoyable to use new techniques to generate attractiveness – maybe it’s a part of a under no circumstances-ending quest and evolution”

There are unquestionable similarities among her function for the home and in trend – the shade palette, the thoroughly viewed as silhouettes, and a normal moodiness. When questioned about the discrepancies among producing for the house or the system, while, Demeulemeester suggests that nothing a great deal alterations. “I usually concentrated on producing my individual vision and style,” she says. “This is the exact same voice and soul but in a distinct kind. For me, it is just picking out a new variety of expression – new means of working in new resources. Additional time is essential, and more time is offered.”

As she heads into her mid-sixties – she is currently 62 – Demeulemeester reveals no indications of slowing down her self-exploration, and appears to be taking the additional time wanted for assignments like this in her stride. “I really like to produce a few-dimensional designs,” she says. “It’s interesting to use new approaches to develop attractiveness – perhaps it’s a component of a in no way-ending quest and evolution.”

Ann Demeulemeester’s assortment for Serax launches these days, and is obtainable solely at style retail outlet RR Corner, until finally a wider launch later in September.
