Green Angel Seaweed Powder

I have been reading a lot recently about seaweed, or sea vegetables as they are sometimes called. Seaweed is a natural, rich source of many of the vitamins and trace elements vital to continuing good health.There are many ways that we can take advantage of all this natural bounty.You can cook with seaweed and there are many recipes around to help us to do so. Seaweed can also be incorporated into skincare products or ground into a powder with many uses. It is this latter that I am going to tell you about.

Green Angel Seaweed Powder is not only therapeutic on a physical level but also on a mental and emotional one too and in this post I am going to tell you about using it as a Bath Tonic.

Green Angel Seaweed Powder helps soothe and gently ease away the tensions of the day - the aching muscles, the irritability, the headaches and the insomnia, When tension and stress continue over a period of time, the nervous system may become exhausted and enthusiasm for living melts away. Green Angel Seaweed powder gives support to those suffering from anxiety, grief, shock, depression, exhaustion and also helps to relieve arthritic and rheumatic pain

To use your Green Angel Seaweed Powder, run your bath with hot water only, put 2 tablespoons of powder into the bath whilst the water is running, (do not allow the bath to get too full as you will later put cold water in), leave for 10 minutes for the seaweed to infuse into the bathwater, put in sufficient cold water to make the bath comfortable, rest and relax in the bath for at least 20 minutes to benefit from the therapeutic properties of the seaweed.Gently pat yourself dry with a soft bath towel.

Coventry Phoenix Lions Club

Some time ago I had a yellow card through my door inviting my wife and I to a wine and nibbles evening and to take a look at Lions International. It was a very enjoyable evening and I learnt a great deal about the Lions. For instance, and the most important aspect of Lionism is that they are a service organisation who offer service to our local community, to our nation and internationally. Most people who know a little about Lions think we are a fund raising organisation and whilst we need funds to continue our work, that is not our prime focus.

However, I have leaped forward in time. As I said, it was an enjoyable evening so I continued to attend meetings. Originally there was probably about 10 to 15 people attended the first meeting. As time progressed our numbers dwindled until 7 remained. We took on the mantle of the existing (really in name only) Coventry Lions Club and the 7 of us took the momentous step of joining and reinstating the club. To make it our own, we have renamed the club the Coventry Phoenix Lions Club.

If any of my readers are in the Coventry (UK) area and would like to know more, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at the Standard Triumph Club, Herald Avenue, Coventry. You will be very welcome to join us. Very soon we will also have our own website. In the meantime check out for more information about Lionism in the UK and Ireland.

How can I rewax a wax jacket?

To conclude my recent series of posts in which I have been telling you about Heritage Leathercare and its uses I am going to follow up a number of contacts I have had on rewaxing a wax jacket.

This is a comparatively simple task. Initially you may need to clean your jacket. If you do, I would suggest using a cloth soaked in soapy water and squeezed out such that it still contains a reasonable amount of water. Wipe areas where there is a buildup of marks and then ensure your jacket is totally dry - this is really important! Now you are ready.Take your tub of Heritage and, using the sponge provided, wipe over the surface, scraping it across the inside edge to remove any surplus polish and then just wipe, in circular motions, on your jacket. Ensure you cover the whole garment, taking special care that it is not left greasy such that the grease comes off on your other clothes.Where it is greasy, take a soft, clean cloth and buff it up to remove excess wax.

The job is now done and your jacket will have that water resistant finish.

How do I clean and polish leather jackets and boots?

Recently I have been telling you about Heritage Leathercare and how to use it on leather furniture, etc. In this post I intend to tell you about some other uses for it, in particular clothing and footwear.

Heritage Leathercare is ideal for use on clothing, particularly Motor Bike Leathers, and as it is colourless, it can be used on any colour.Most leather jackets, trousers and skirts are either black or brown so your Heritage will clean and polish them as you apply it.

Should your clothing be white or a similar light colour, you may however, need to clean it first. Simply wipe over with a soapy cloth, paying special attention to areas where there is a buildup of marks. Ensure your leather is totally dry and you are then ready.

Take your sponge (provided) and wipe over the surface of your Heritage Leathercare, removing any surplus by wiping on the inside edge of your container. You then simply wipe over your leather in circular motions, ensuring your leather is not greasy, if it is then just buff up using a clean and dry soft cloth.Heritage Leathercare feeds, polishes,and protects your leather, leaving a water resistant finish.It is this latter property that ensures it's suitability for motor bike leathers.Heritage Leathercare is also ideal for boots and shoes. As stated your Heritage will clean and polish your leather boots and shoes at the same time, keeping them soft and water resistant. It's ease of use makes it especially suitable for motor bike boots and knee length leather fashion boots.

Note: Heritage Leathercare is NOT recommended for use on suede, nubuck or nappa leathers

How do I protect leather clothing and footwear?

Recently I have been telling you about Heritage Leathercare and, in particular, how to use it on leather furniture. It does, however, have other uses .

Heritage Leathercare is also ideal for use on leather clothing and footwear. It feeds, polishes and protects your leather whilst leaving a water resistant finish and, being colourless, it can be used on any colour. This makes it ideal for outdoor clothing and footwear.

Take your tub of Heritage and load your sponge (provided) by wiping it over the surface of the polish. Remove any surplus by wiping the sponge across the inside edge of your tub. You are now ready and proceed by simply wiping your loaded sponge in circular motions on your leather taking care not to leave the leather greasy. As long as the treated leather is not greasy the job is done. If, however, the leather is greasy to the touch, you will need to buff up using a soft dry cloth.

Following the above instructions, you can use Heritage Leathercare on clothing (jackets, skirts, trousers, motorbike leathers, etc.) and footwear. It is specially recommended for boots and shoes- leather fashion boots particularly which can be so difficult to keep clean. Using Heritage, the job can be completed in minutes. It is recommended that clothing and footwear used only in the winter are treated with Heritage before being stored.

What is the best and easiest product for my leather?

Having introduced you to Heritage Leathercare (sometimes known as Celtic Leathercare) in my last post, I thought I ought to tell you something about it.

Made in their Dublin facility by Drigate Products Heritage Leathercare is a traditional 19th century leather balsam containing original, old fashioned ingredients which include beeswax. These are well known in the trade for protecting and revitalising the leather used in leathercraft (and indeed the stitching). Many craftspeople and professionals will vouch for its tried and tested formula.

The results obtained with Heritage Leathercare are instantaneous and long lasting. Newer leather products benefit from a shine and protection unsurpassed by modern polishes not containing our ingredients whilst older, tired leather is left revitalised and more supple.Heritage Leathercare is generally regarded as one of the most economical on the market in this day and age.

How do I keep my new leather suite looking new?

I am still receiving queries from people who have been checking my website looking for help with caring for their leather suites. Most of them seem to have new suites and the correspondents were wanting help with keeping them looking like new. Heritage Leathercare is the answer.

Heritage Leathercare feeds, polishes and protects leather and leaves a water resistant finish It is also colourless so can be used on any colour. Another advantage of your Heritage is that it will also clean most colours although white and similar pale colours may, need washing first. To do this, wash with pure soap (Simple Soap,Dreft, soap flakes, etc.) and dry thoroughly making sure your leather is totally dry before applying your Heritage.

Heritage Leathercare is very easy to use.Using the sponge provided, wipe it across the surface of the polish and remove any excess by wiping across the inside edge of the tub. Then apply to your leather suite by wiping very sparingly, in circular motions. On completion, your suite should not be greasy to the touch. If it is greasy, buff it up using a clean, dry and soft cloth.To keep your leather furniture in a supple condition and looking good it is recommended that you apply your Heritage Leathercare 3 or 4 times per year as a minimum.

How do I clean and polish wood furniture easily

In my recent posts I have been telling you how to use Heritage Woodcare to remove bitumen and nicotine, clean and polish your kitchen and wood floors.

Made in their Dublin facility by Drigate Products and based on a nineteenth century secret formula known only by the then grandmasters of the furniture crafts, Heritage Woodcare has been updated for modern products. The keen rivalry between these skilled craftsmen brought about a constant searching for absolute perfection in the preservstion, cleaning and polishing of wooden furniture.. Many priceless antique pieces seen today give testimony to the success of their skills. Comprehensive research aided by enlightened technology has enabled Drigate Products to produce a product that gives the same outstanding results in a fraction of the time taken by those skilled craftsmen.

Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use. Give your bottle a thorough shake, pour some into a container, soak any clean, soft and dry cloth in the polish, squeeze and wring your cloth out till it is damp dry, return the excess polish to your bottle (not forgetting to put the top on securely - it goes all over you when you next shake it if you don't as I have discovered to my cost more than once!), and you are now ready. All you do now is wipe. Heritage Woodcare takes off all the buildup of silicones, waxes, grease and grime and will also remove most white heat, ring and water marks. Heavier buildups may need more than one application.

As Heritage Woodcare takes off all this buildup. it is ideally suited to using on all your wood furniture. The ease of using it and it's effectiveness make it the first choice for many people and companies, and it is used in a variety of commercial establishments including hotels, guest houses, stately homes. churches, etc as well as in the domestic situation.

Removing tar (bitumen) from leather

Seeing my post about removing bitumen from wood flooring, someone contacted me to ask about removing bitumen from leather.

I was demonstrating Heritage Woodcare at a show a while ago and someone told me about his experiences.Apparently he had not long bought a brand new Jaguar with cream leather upholstery and was driving this car through an area where the road had recently been resurfaced. Somehow a piece of grit covered in tar (bitumen) became trapped between his trousers and the car seat covering both in the tar. He went on to say that the trousers were ruined but he had rescued the leather seat by wiping it over with Heritage Woodcare. I thanked him for the information but advised him to wash that particular seat with pure soap and then condition it with Heritage Leathercare.

So, to answer the query about removing bitumen from leather, wipe the leather with a cloth prepared withHeritage Woodcare (see my previous post for instructions on how to prepare your cloth), wash your leather with pure soap (Simple Soap, baby soap, soap flakes, Dreft, etc.), make sure your leather is totally dry, then condition with Heritage Leathercare.

how to remove nicotine from wood

I am still getting replies to the post about the cheap oak chest of drawers bought from an antique shop. The reason it was so cheap was because it came in a house clearance from someone who had been a heavy smoker and the drawers were very dirty and covered in nicotine.

I was asked if Heritage Woodcare would remove all this buildup.Heritage Woodcare removes all the buildup of silicons, waxes, grease and grime and will also remove most white heat, ring and water marks. It will, therefore, successfully remove all the buildup from the drawers including the nicotine and, in the process, make them smell a little fresher.

Hereitage Woodcare is very easy to use . Give your bottle a really good shake, pour some into a container, take any soft and clean cloth, soak it in the polish, squeeze and wring the cloth out till it is damp dry then pour the remaining polish back into your bottle. You are now ready!All you do now is wipe, possibly more than once, following the direction of the grain . As previously stated, Heritage Woodcare removes all the build up of silicons, waxes , grease and grime and as the nicotine is in the buildup, that will be removed at the same time. If you are left with a steaky finish, that is the polish doing its work and more than one application will be required.

How to remove bitumen and tar from wood floors

I am still receiving requests for information about removing bitumen and tar from wood flooring so I thought it would be useful to go over it once more.

Bitumen/tar is used as an adhesive to stick wood flooring, particularly parquet and similar types of wood flooring. Over time the bitumen seeps up between the joints leaving black marks on the floor. I had this problem on my own floors.My house was built with underfloor heating downstairs so the flooring on the ground floor is concrete covered with parquetMy wife and I decided to replace the carpet in the hall and stairs. I took up the existing carpet myself to make the job easier and cheaper only to find a parquet floor in the hall and I could also see the floor continued into the lounge. After much persuasion my wife agreed to not replacing the carpet on the understanding that I did the maintenance.

After several attempts at sweeping the floor I managed to pick up all the dust. I then got down on my hands and knees (I could in those days!) and used Scotchbrite (a non scratch scourer) soaked in Heritage Woodcare and "scrubbed" the whole floor. I finished up with a floor that looked really clean and had a slight sheen, I was also pleased to note that all the bitumen that had seeped up between the joints had been removed.

Every time I sweep the floor now also seems to restore the sheen and wiping over with my Heritage Woodcare once per month is all that is required to keep my floor looking really good.

How to keep you Kitchen clean and grease free.

Continuing my examination of Heritage Woodcare (sometimes known as Celtic Woodcare) I will now tell you where to use it.

I have already mentioned furniture and it is ideal for use on your furniture being able to clean ( including the removal of grease and grime, nicotine buildup, ring marks, etc.) and polish at the same time.However, where there is a heavy buildup more than one application may be needed.

Heritage Woodcare is also ideal for use in your kitchen. Here it will remove all the buildup of grease and water marks particularly. Every time we cook we are releasing water and grease into the atmosphere. This then settles on worksurfaces,cupboards, cooker hoods, even the floor. Regular washing of the floor keeps them clean and grease free, thus safe to walk on.However, our cooker hoods don't necessarily get this regular washing and are prone to getting buildups of grease. This then hardens and can sometimes be difficult to remove. Using your Heritage can help. When preparing your cloth (see my previous post) having squeezed your cloth cloth out, do not ring it out but leave it reasonably damp, wipe over the cooker hood last thing at night. Do this for about a week and the oils in your Heritage will gradually penetrate the dried on grease meaning you will eventually just wipe it off.

Heritage Woodcare is also ideal for wiping over your cupboards, worksurfaces, etc. Regular use will keep these clean and grease free and prevent the buildup of water marks,etc. thus keeping your kitchen looking like new.

Heritage Woodcare

I have had some poeple asking me about Heritage Woodcare and what it does so I thought it would be useful to spend a few posts looking at it.

Heritage Woodcare is a twentyfirst century product based on a tried and tested recipe that is centuries old and was known only by the grand masters of the furniture crafts. The constant striving for perfection in the cleaning,polishing,and preservation of wooden furniture between these rival grandmasters can still be seen today when looking at many priceless antiques and, in order, to get the desired results, these grandmasters would spend hours, sometimes days, working on a single item.Few people today have the time, or the patience, of these grandmasters, so after much research, and backed up by modern technology, this centuries old recipe has been updated to produce Heritage Woodcare. which gives the same outstanding results in a fraction of the time.

Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use. Take your bottle, give it a really good shake and pour some into a container. Take any soft, clean cloth, soak it in the polish, squeeze and wring your cloth out and then pour the polish remaining in your container back into your bottle. You are now ready!To clean and polish your furniture you simply wipe, following the grain of the wood. Heritage Woodcare cleans and polishes your furniture at the same time, taking off the build-up of silicones,waxes,grease and grime restoring your furniture back to its original finish. Heavy build-ups of grease and grime may require more than one application. At the same time it will also renove most white heat marks, ring marks and water marks although again, more than one application may be needed.
