For sun-soaked summer days, many of us head to the park, beach, and even our own backyards. But how many homeowners can appreciate the benefits of daylight from the great indoors? If you win this month’s Summer Sunshine Give-Away you’ll instantly increase your home’s natural light, so you can enjoy the sun’s rays long after summer fades. That’s because we’ve teamed up with Solatube to give one lucky winner two incredible daylighting systems, installation included where available.

ENTER NOW!

Today and every day this month (from 12:00 p.m. EST July 31, 2015 to 11:59 a.m. August 31, 2015), enter to win two Solatube Daylighting Systems worth up to $1,500. See Official Rules below.

If you win this month’s give-away you’ll reap all the rewards of beautiful natural light. Increased sunlight isn’t just a boon for houseplants, but it also helps cut soaring energy costs by minimizing the need for overhead lighting. Not only that, but daylight also has surprising benefits to your mood; studies show that there’s a link between exposure to daylight and a positive outlook and improved sense of well-being.

What makes Solatube the perfect method for adding much needed sunlight into your home is its high-tech delivery system. Unlike traditional skylights, the Solatube units screen infrared rays that can overheat your home, as well as ultraviolet rays that can prematurely fade furniture and fabric. The result is eco-friendly and energy-efficient lighting, without any of the drawbacks of unfiltered sunlight.

So what are you waiting for? Enter Bob Vila’s Summer Sunshine Give-Away today and every day this month for your chance to win a bright new addition for your home.

Though a full spectrum of prizes for the home make the Great Backyard Giveaway a “can’t miss” summer event, don’t forget: The sweepstakes also includes the full line of Wet & Forget products. That’s four different cleaners, each carefully designed to tackle a different task. But no matter their intended uses, all Wet & Forget cleaners provide satisfying results—always without scrubbing or bleach, sometimes without even a rinse-off or wipe-down. The Wet & Forget family includes:

Wet & Forget Outdoor: Designed to eliminate outdoor mold, mildew, moss, lichen, and algae, Wet & Forget Outdoor can be used safely on virtually any outdoor surface, including but not limited to roofs, decks, and siding materials. You can even use it on outdoor fabrics or garden statues. You don’t need a heavy-duty pressure washer; Wet & Forget simply sprays on, then works with the rain and wind to gently remove stains and prevent mold and mildew for up to a year.

Wet & Forget Indoor Mold+Mildew Disinfectant Cleaner: Rid indoor surfaces of mold and mildew—and in the process, prevent their regrowth—with a spray-and-wipe cleaner that not only eliminates stains, but also deodorizes and disinfects. Spray Wet & Forget Indoor on nonporous surfaces in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and laundry rooms, and after letting the solution sit for 10 minutes, wipe the area clean. That’s it! There’s no scrubbing or rinsing required.

Wet & Forget Shower: Say goodbye to your typical bathroom cleaning routine. Apply Wet & Forget Shower just once per week, and you’ll find that it’s painlessly easy to keep the bathing area clear of soap scum, mold, mildew, grime, and body oils. Simply spray the product onto the tub and tile, fixtures and doors, then rinse it off the next day. If you’re used to scrubbing up and wiping down bathroom surfaces, you’re going to love this easy, one-step process—and its soothing scent, too!

Miss Muffet’s Revenge: Un-invite spiders from your home with Miss Muffet’s Revenge. With a single application, this potent solution can provide whole-home protection against spiders for up to a year. Controlling the spray couldn’t be easier, because the product includes a three-foot flexible hose with a precision nozzle on the end. Those components work in tandem to help you reach the corners and crevices where spiders hide, all without bending or stretching or climbing up a ladder.

 

Now, with three weeks left in the Great Backyard Giveaway, there are plenty of prizes left to win. Scroll down to view details for all the drawings that remain.

 

WEEK 6

July 6 to 12—your choice of $600 Visa gift card, patio swing, or four-piece patio set 

 

WEEK 7


July 13 to 19—$75 in Wet & Forget products of your choice

 

GRAND PRIZE


July 20 to 26—your choice of $3,100 Visa gift card, Handyman Package, or Garden Guru Package

Work smarter, not harder, and you can spend less time on chores and more time on the sweeter things in life—like winning free stuff! Hurry to capitalize on your chance to win Wet & Forget products and your choice among an array of stylish or practical prizes for the home.
