How do I keep warm and get relief from pain? Paston Crafts, Microwarm Heatwraps

Sometimes caring for yourself goes more than skin deep and. with the weather turning colder The Paston Crafts range takes care of those deeper aches - we stock their full range of heatwraps and warmers stuffed with wheat and aromatic herbs, as well as their relaxing eye masks and herbal cushions.


Microwarm heatwraps
Containing wheat, and available in lavender, herbal mix or unfragranced, our heatwraps can be used hot or cold for the relief of pain. Simply pop into the microwave for up to two minutes (depends on wattage) or in the freezer for three hours and apply to the affected area for deep and soothing relief.


These I can really recommend from personal experience. As it says on the tin, they do work. I personnally have gained relief from pain, particularly backpain, by using these and have had many people extolling their virtues. I have also used them to keep myself warm when doing outdoor shows. Additionally I regularly take one to bed as my feet get very cold and stop me getting to sleep. They really are good!

Drigate Products - Heritage Woodcare

In my last post I talked about Heritage Woodcare. I thought that as I have mentioned this wonderful polish quite a lot, I ought to tell you more about it - what it is, what it will do, how you use it, etc.

.Heritage Woodcare is made in Dublin by Drigate Products (Mfg)Ltd. Drigate Products is a well established family company based on the outskirts of Dublin.They are commited to manufacturing and supplying the very best traditional cleaning and nurturing products to care for your personal and household possesions.Many of their products are based on Victorian craftsmans recipes containing old fashioned tried and tested ingredients but updated, using modern technology, to cope with 21st century developments. Heritage Woodcare is just one example of their approach to bringing the very best products to your attention.

Heritage Woodcare is a twentyfirst century polish based on a tried and tested recipe that is centuries old and was known only by the grand masters of the furniture crafts. The competition 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. 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.

How do I clean outdoor wooden furniture?

I was asked recently how to clean outdoor wooden furniture. The first questions to ask are what wood is the furniture made from and what colour is it. If your garden furniture is made from teak which has weathered to a silvery colour or any wood that has weathered to a nice colour then applying polish may damage the weathering e.g. turn it black. You will either have to leave it as it is and just wash it ensuring it is left totally dry or sand the weathering off.

Generally speaking in other situations we recommend using Heritage Woodcare. Heritage Woodcare takes off most of the build of silicones, waxes, greae and grime.

Using it is very easy. Simply shake your bottle thoroughly, pour some of the polish into a container, soak a clean cloth (such as a duster) in the polish, squeeze and wring it out till it is damp dry, return the surplus polish to your container and you are now ready. All you need do now is wipe and there is no need to buff up! Regular use of Heritage Woodcare will help to keep your furniture clean and being oil-based will help to look after it.

Do I need to remove wax polish from my furniture?

Someone asked me if it is necessary to remove wax polish from furniture. The short answer to this is Yes. Continual and regular usage of wax polish will result in your furniture becoming clogged and dull. Whilst that in itself is not necessarily a problem, it does affect the ascetics (i.e. It doesn't look as nice)

There is, however, an easy solution. Heritage Woodcare removes all this buildup (silicones, waxes, grease and grime) and at the same time it will also remove most white-heat marks, ring marks and water marks. Using it is also very easy. Simply shake your bottle thoroughly, pour some of the polish into a container, soak a clean cloth (such as a duster) in the polish, squeeze and wring it out till it is damp dry, return the surplus polish to your container and you are now ready.

All you need do now is wipe, following the direction of the grain - there is no need to buff up! You may find your furniture becomes streaky. Don't worry, this is the polish doing it's job and indicating you will need more than one application. The removal of marks may also require more than one application. When using the polish on second or subsequent occasions, it is recommended that you wipe the whole surface to keep it even. Keeping your cloth in a screw top jar or sealed plastic bag in the short term will keep it damp and mean you may not need to prepare it again although this is not guaranteed.

Regular use of your Heritage Will keep your furniture looking good with the added advantage that there will be no more buildups!

How can I restore the colour to my Leather Suite

I have received a query from a reader asking me for help with restoring the colour to his suite.
Apparently his favourite chair is starting to lose it.s colour where it receives a lot of wear.As it happens I do stock a range of coloured balams suitable for just this problem.

To use these balsams, it is recommended the furniture is thoroughly cleaned first. I suggest it is washed using soapy water - Dreft, Simple soap, baby soap, soap flakes, etc. We don't recommend detergent based products. Having washed your furniture, make sure it is totally dry, and I mean dry.

Take your coloured balsam and apply sparingly in circular motions. Start with the problem areas and then go over the whole area to keep the colours even. You may need to buff the furniture up before sitting in it.

If this sounds like the answer to your problems, please contact me either by phone on 07967 139636 or email, jim@heritagepolish.com to check if I have your colour in stock.

Don't forget, Heritage Polishes (Woodcare and Leathercare) can be obtained online, visit www.heritagepolish,com
