How To Buff Your Boat Like A Pro
Using Shurhold's Buff Magic on a boat is simple, once an owner knows how to do it. Proper compounding is explained below and users can also watch a video detailing the process at this link: http://shurhold.com/article/clean-n-simple/what-is-the-proper-way-to-compound-with-buff-magic-and-a-dual-action-polisher/. Before beginning, owners should have Buff Magic, Shurhold's Dual Action Polisher, pad fluffing brush, chip brush and microfiber towels.
Owners should start by setting up their polisher with a clean wool Buff Magic Pad.The working area should be marked off into small 2-foot squares. Work on one square at a time, moving on as each area is finished.
Using the chip brush, owners will want to apply a series of Xs to the surface. Product should not be applied to the pad as this will cause premature overloading and clumping of the pad. Once the product is on the surface, the pad can be placed face down on the surface and the machine can be turned on. Start at about speed 2. By starting with the pad on the surface before turning it on or off, product slinging and messiness is reduced.
As soon as the machine is on, it should be kept moving using an overlapping pattern. Once owners have gone over the area completely in one direction, they should then go back over it in the opposite direction. This should be done two to three times. Going into the last pass of the pattern, owners can speed up the tool to a speed of 4 or 5.
Then, use a microfiber towel to remove all of the haze and excess material.

Keep Food Fresh Longer With Gripstic
Gripstic is a new product that solves an old problem: how to effectively close those bags of chips, cereal, salad greens, frozen vegetables - nearly everything that comes in a bag. Other methods such as clips, ties, or rubber bands fall off, break, take up space, and don't seal, allowing air and moisture to spoil the product quickly.
The Gripstic with its streamlined form slides on smoothly and easily, and creates an airtight closure that keeps foods fresh and even seals in liquids.
With the Gripstic, a bag of chopped lettuce can stay crisp for more than a week, whereas before it might be wilted and brown in just a couple of days. Crackers no longer become stale when they've just been opened.
No more cheerios all over the floor from the bag coming open at the wrong time. No more reaching into the refrigerator or freezer and grabbing a bag from the wrong end, accidentally upending it and tipping out the contents.
Another great idea, the Gripstic Xtreme Sports waterproof pouch solves the problem of keeping cell phones and other electronic equipment dry while boating. An iPhone can even be operated right through the transparent plastic of the pouch.
The pouch is 100 percent waterproof up to 32 feet, and 100 percent dust and sand proof. It comes with simple and effective patented sliding seal technology, one-touch adjustable/detachable neck lanyard, and safety ring and clip for added security.
