The rains seem to be unstoppable. While we are warm and cosy indoors, our outdoor equipment and furniture require much-needed care. Here are a few products you can consider:
The holiday season is here and soon we will be out decorating our homes and lawns with beautiful lights. A sure way to protect your outdoor electric cords from rain and melting snow is with Twist and Seal. Twist and Seal’s family of products, Mini, Cord Dome and Maxx, will keep wetness from creeping into wiring and safeguard your home from electrical shock. You can plug in one or multiple products and leave the gadget to do its work. All products are UV resistant, and available at national retailers. For more details, check twistandseal.com
The rains are sure to spoil your beautiful lawn furniture or outer walls. Why not save them with a quick coat of paint from Dixie Belle Paint Company? Their high-quality chalk mineral paints, glazes, waxes and finishes are super easy to use and incredibly versatile. Great on wood, metal, glass, laminate, ceramic, concrete and even fabric, with no sanding, priming or prepping is needed. Similarly for indoor wooden furniture, you can use polish or wax to seal away moisture, which may attract insects and termites. Available in Canada on the Dixie Belle Paint Company’s website
, as well as from over 600 retailers.
If you do not have a garage and park your car out in the open, Walmart
has some great rain-proof covers to protect your car and other vehicles. Not just cars, you will also find covers for your barbecue grill, gardening tools and any other outdoor equipment/furniture you want to preserve from rotting or rusting due to heavy downpour. Walmart’s Rain-X Glass Treatment for cars help repel rain, sleet and snow and seals microscopic pores in glass with a non-stick invisible barrier. It allows easy removal of frost, ice, salt and bug splatter.
Have a safe winter!
