Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 82, low 59)
We are adjusting to being back in a big city after being away for two weeks. Man….the Tampa traffic is horrible. The drivers are aggressive and always in a hurry.
Unlike the traffic on the prairie.
We have been going to our wonderful gym. There are cheaper ones around, but we really love the Tv’s on the bikes and treadmills, the hot pool, and the sauna. I find myself getting interested in a Tv show and not realizing how long I’m the treadmill or bike. It sure helps keep from getting bored. Of course the best part is the wonderful warm pool. It’s not quite as warm as a hot tub, but it’s pretty close!
Unfortunately, it’s back to reality this week. Al has some pest control accounts to do this week, and I have paperwork, and cleaning to do.
We brought back a LOT of prairie dust/sand/dirt with us and now it’s time to get rid of it.
Remember how dirty our truck was?
After I took this picture, more dust accumulated on the back window to a point where you almost couldn’t see the “wash me” print.
The first thing we did was head to a car wash for the truck.
Fortunately, the coach wasn't nearly as dirty since it didn’t run up and down the prairie road several times a day. However, we did feel it was probably too dirty to use The Solution this time. There are a few people here that will come to your site and wash it for $100 or so. Our main concern with using them was that we’d end up with swirls in the clear coat. Our coach is dark so they really show up. We have a few already from before we bought it, and we didn’t want any more swirls.
So, I decided to give The Solution a try on some of the least dirty places. It did a good job and I didn’t see any swirls. I then tried some of the dirtier places towards the bottom. I used a more product than normal to really wet the coach and it did a great job. I change the microfiber towels often once they get dirt accumulating on them so as not to grind the dirt back into the painted surfaces. It worked as well on the really dirty places. The dirt is gone,there are no swirls and it left a really nice smooth surface and a good shine.
Cool! I don’t think we’ll be paying any to wash the coach since we have The Solution.
So, it passed the test for normal dirt and now passed the test for prairie dirt as well!
If you haven’t already tried The Solution, I can’t recommend it highly enough. It works great on clear coat finishes, windows, chrome. It washes and shines all at once, and does a great job removing bugs. It’s quick and easy too.
No, I don’t work for them, do not get a commission, just like to pass on a good product.
I just noticed they have an internet special where you can get 4 gallons for the price of 3. They are normally $40 a gallon, and with this, you get a nice savings.
I just ordered 4 gallons and am splitting with a neighbor.
So, now on to my next product review.
I posted a while back that we bought pedometers that were recommended by a few other people.
I’m happy to say they have passed the test and we really like them. We ended up ordering ours from Walmart, because Amazon couldn’t quite get it straight that I have a separate mailing and billing address. I don’t think I’ve still gotten it straightened out with them. I keep telling them my shipping and mailing address (for debit card purposes) and they end up switching the two around. It must be me, but I gave up and ordered through Walmart.
We’ve had pedometers before where you have to reset them every day and it’s usually a bit of a hassle. With these, once you set them up the first time, they automatically start over each day and keep a running 7 day list going. They measure the number of steps…both regular and aerobic, calories burned, and miles walked. It’s really helping us to get motivated. We want to get in at least the recommended 10,000 steps per day.
It’s easy on the prairie, it’s easy when we go to the gym, but not so easy staying home cleaning, and doing laundry..
That’s all the products I’m recommending today.
How about you, do you have anything you really like???
