I always love when a customer will come
up to me and tell me what a good result they had when they did a
project using a product that we write about. When kitchen cabinets
look dry, or lack the color they used to have when they were new I
Restore A Finish and then Howards Feed and
. Cabinets that are in the kitchen get a lot of grease on
them and dirty areas right around the knobs and pulls from years of
use. If your cabinets have a stained wood finish and are good shape,
don’t refinish those cabinets
; restore them to back to their
natural beauty. The first step in getting your cabinets looking
great again is to clean them to get rid of all the dirt and oil. Use
Holloway House Fine Wood Cleaner and a clean white
rag and wipe the wood finish turning the rag and keeping a clean side
to clean with. Once the cabinets are clean if you have discoloration
in areas of the cabinets from water or sun damage, and then use the
Restore A Finish to bring the color back to the cabinets
without having to refinish the cabinets. If the stain looks good,
just use the
Feed and Wax to add deep luster back into the
Feed and Wax protects your cabinets and is made
from beeswax, carnauba wax and orange oil which will enhance the
depth of the grain in the wood. My daughter moved into a house that
had just very inexpensive cabinets that really only had a light
veneer of wood over a chip wood construction. She was sure that
nothing could make them look better. But she tried the Feed and Wax
and was amazed and thrilled at how good the cabinets looked. So
amazed that she called me and told me “You are right Mom”, and
that folks is truly a miracle!
Question: Trudy I was wondering if the
Shake Away products were safe for pets? I have a small dog
and I would hate for anything to happen to him.
Answer: The Shake Away Mouse
is completely safe. It’s made of Rosemary, Cedar and
Mint oils with are completely safe in the little packets. My dog
sniffed at them and then just walked away. They are great to use on
inside areas including garages, barns, sheds, RVs, cars and boats.
If you need to use a repellent outside use the
Shake Away Rodent
. Better to repel them away from your home than use a
toxic poison and then they die in the wall.
Question: I just had new hardwood
floors installed and we have surge protectors around that stick out
like a sour thumb. I remember you writing about a surge protector
that is wood colored – was I imagining that?
Answer: No they are called Invisiplug.
comes in 3 colors, dark, light and a cherry with
optional USB connections. I like
Invisiplug because it blends
in with flooring or your office furniture and I had one mom tell me
that her toddler ignores it now since it blends in with the flooring.
All I know is that it looks so much better on my floors than those
old grey ones and does not cost anymore.
Question: I was looking for liquid
black stove paint for my wood stove. I don’t want a spray because
the stove is inside and too heavy to carry outside to paint. Can I
get some information?
Answer: Meeco makes brushable
black high heat paint.
Meeco does everything that you would
need to refurbish your stove. They have a glass cleaner that is
specially formulated to remove smoke, soot, baked on creosote for
your stove or fireplace. They have a
Gas Log Cleaner that
will remove all soot and all you have to do is spray down your gas
logs when they are hot. They also make a Fireplace Mortar to fill in
on mortar joints or to reset firebrick. If you have a wood burning
fireplace you can use
Creo Shot to break down soot and
creosote buildup. It is a plastic tube that you just drop into the
fire and let it do all the work.
Creo Shot is completely safe
because your hands never touch the ingredients.
