Keep those dang mosquitoes at bay!
We are so beyond those Big Lots tiki torches from the 80's. Tom liked the torches so much he told a co-worker about them who ended up buying a few for his wife as a gift. She was absolutely thrilled!
In fact, it went over so well he's now buying them for his mother and mother-in-law, too.
Outdoor torches are calling your name....
- Real flames create a special atmosphere at dusk not found at any other time of the day. Torches look fantastic and make you feel like one satisfied homeowner. Truly, a slice of paradise in your own backyard.
- Use lighting to spotlight a special plant, fountain or other focal point of your landscape. Perfect way to luminate a walkway.
- Increase safety and security around your yard and property with outdoor lights and torches.
- Repel bugs, mosquitoes and other pests with your citronella torches. Citronella is a natural bug repellent and is sometimes coupled with lemongrass for added effect.
- Torches are particularly nice around a pool if you are a night swimmer. The mosquitoes can get so pesky and making your pool unusable. Not only will the torches add a touch of elegance poolside, but they'll keep those bugs away.
- Kerosene/candle torches are a unique and inexpensive way to make your garden glow. 4-6 hours of burn time is plenty. Trust me.
- Create a party atmosphere for a wedding, shower or summer BBQ and impress all your friends with the power of fire.
- Instead of watching another pointless t.v. show indoors at night, sit outdoors and enjoy the warm summer nights with your torches gleaming. Minus the bugs!
- Durable, all-weather steel construction
- Snuffer/Lid included, stores underneath when lit
- Assembles in minutes and stakes directly into the garden
- Refillable torch canister included with x-long 10” wick
- Use citronella torch fuel or lamp oil (not included)
- Burns 4 to 6 hours
- Measures 14”W x 36”H
~As a side note, I've owned Desert Steel products for several years now. When it says "all-weather" it really means it.
Tom and I have left our bird feeders outside all winter long and they still look brand new. This is incredible considering the weather we have in Buffalo, NY.
One day it can be pouring rain, the next sunny and 65 degrees and the following? A huge snowstorm. You just never know what to expect!
Why we are thrilled with this torch
But that's exactly what happens when you purchase subpar merchandise from sketchy suppliers. If it's not quality, it won't even last a season, let alone a lifetime.
Desert Steel only creates the creme de la creme of merchandise. You'll savor many years of enjoyment due to their hand-fashioned artistry.
As I get, ahem....older, I'm discovering that I'd rather own less "stuff" and more pieces that hold family heirloom potential. Less is more.
I don't want to saddle my kids with lots of junk they'll hold onto for sentimental reasons. I'd rather pass on just a few pieces that look and function the same way as when I first used them.
It's special to light this torch and enjoy it flickering at dusk. Both the shape and texture of this piece celebrate the season of summer.
And while we savor the sizzles of summer, we also revel in the lack of mosquitoes swarming us. You have the option of using citronella with this product to keep the bugs at bay!
Final fiery thoughts...
As a gardener, I cherish being outside and enjoy every bit of the great outdoors from spring right through fall.
This terrific torch will draw the eye and warm the heart as you delight in every bit of time you invest outside....while you can. Summer flies by, savor every bit with Desert Steel!
