Happy Handy Man

We met so many wonderful readers at the Humble Show in February. I just received this email about products that the customer bought at the show. It was mail like this that Dad loved and the reason he would search for products to use around the house to save you money. With the readers permission I am sharing it with you.

Hi Trudy,

I met you at the Home Show in Humble in February. I needed some help with my wooden front that was looking old and faded. Your team hooked me up with Restore A Finish and Sun Shield for the door and All Gleam for the handle set. I went on through the show happy with my purchases. At the show was another door restoring company that I talked to. They said from my description of my door that it needed more work that your items could fix. I made an appointment for them to come and look at my door. Of course after they looked at my door the figure that I was told from the show doubled and I was told the door was in such bad shape that they would have to remove the door and take it away for a day to repair. They could not quote me a price and their manager would have to call me back. Well the company did not ever call back. After a month of waiting I decided to give your products a try. I am so pleased I did. The Restore A Finish is amazing and I am so happy with the way my door looks. You saved me several hundred dollars with the products you recommended. Thanks again for your help.

And that’s why the article is written. If you ever need help with a project, please call me at the store in San Antonio or email me at happyhandyman2@yahoo.com .

Now to the email…..

Question: My daughter borrowed my car and spilt coffee all over the passenger seat. Well it smells like a coffee bean farm and the seat is really stained. What can I do to take care of the stain and the smell?

Answer: Get the stain up first with Herbys Fame. It’s the best stain remover for fabric. Spray the area well and then take a white rag and blot up the stain. Do not rub; it might cause the stain to spread. Once the stain is removed use Bio Zapp to neutralize the odor. Spray the seat and don’t worry Bio Zapp is clear and it will not stain the seat. Then let dry. Also get an Air Sponge. Open it up and just leave it under the seat. Your car will have a nice clean smell.

Question: I like to hand water my yard and gardens. I think it’s better than therapy. Last summer I had a hand held nozzle and it was so heavy. I would like a small handle that won’t tire me out but will give a nice soft spray.

Answer: Little Big Shot is a good hand held nozzle that is so light. I like it because you can get three different sprays from the one nozzle. One is a pin point, one is a soft spray, and one is a full force one that is good for washing off the concrete. It’s a superior nozzle because you get 40% more force for 40% less water and will not leak. They are made in the USA and assembled by Disabled Vets. You can’t get any better than that.

Question: My husband wants to remove the weather stripping from our doors and windows. It is all cracked and you can see small dots of sunlight from inside the house. Can you recommend a weather stripping that is not hard to put up?

Answer: There is a weather strip on the market called Jamb Up that is very easy to install. It will help keep your home energy-efficient year round. There is also one called V Strip. It has adhesive on one side so all that you have to do is cut it to the desired length and pull off the adhesive strip and press on.
