During the winter time, the dry air does a number on our hands and feet. I know that I feel like I'm constantly moisturizing and still ending up with dry, cracked skin on my hands. After a while, severely dry skin will get irritated and could even bleed easily because it is not as supple as it usually is. Oh the joys of winter time :)

If you are constantly battling dry hands and have not had success with other moisturizers, then consider O'Keeffe's Working Hands. This moisturizer provides a protective coating to the skin and also moisture to be drawn to the skins surface without being pulled away from the skin. This product is indented for severe situations but also does great when your skin doesn't need major corrective action.

Protect your dog’s paws from the uncomfortable and irritating side effects of snow, ice, and rock salt at this time of the year with 100% all natural Musher’s Secret!

Musher’s Secret was originally developed for sledding dogs, who needed protection against the extreme conditions and temperatures they were facing in upper Canada. Once the founders saw how effective it was at protecting dogs paws they started to market their product to specialty retailers.

Musher’s Secret is an all organic paw wax that can be applied to the paws of dogs, horses and many other animals to provide a barrier against all sorts of harsh conditions. The paw wax dries in seconds to provide a semi-permeable layer between your animal’s paws and salt, snow, ice, hot pavement, sand, etc. It can also be used to help animals heal from wounds to their feet.

Here’s the easiest way to apply: Put each paw directly onto the wax and rub the paw around. Use your fingers to work the wax into the spaces between the pads. Wax-covered paws will not stain floors, rugs or furniture.

Easy to apply: Put each paw directly into the wax and rub the paw around. Use your fingers to work the wax into the nooks and crannies around the pads. The wax dries very quickly and provides an immediate barrier against snow, ice, hot surfaces, rock salt, and more. Generally recommended to be applied once a week, but if your dog does a lot of walking/running then it may wear off in as little as 2-3 days. Apply as necessary.

Advantages: The great thing about Musher’s Secret is it is made from only food-grade, organic wax, so you don’t have to worry about your pet getting sick from licking the wax off it’s paws. It also won’t stain your furniture, and it’s non-allergenic.
Musher’s Secret is available in 3 sizes: 60 gram, 200 gram, and 454 gram (1 pound)

If you have a garbage disposal in your kitchen, the tendency for many of us is to run water until we are finished with the garbage disposal and that's it. But did you know that stopping the water immediately after running the garbage disposal means that these minced food particles are just going to sit inside your drains instead? Over time, this food grime will create a slimy buildup inside that slowly clogs the drain. This buildup can be difficult to unclog once it finally gets to a point that we notice there is a problem.

By the time fall rolls around, we are often tired of spending time on our lawns. However, by completing a few simple steps this fall, you will have a stronger, greener lawn next spring! Here is what we suggest:

Remove leaves quickly: It is important to keep up with leaf removal on your lawn. Too many leaves will prevent sunlight and air from reaching your grass, which is especially a problem when you are reseeding or over-seeding. Be sure to rake leaves frequently and dispose of according to your township’s recycling efforts. By the time winter comes around and your grass is going into dormancy, you will want to get the remainder of the leaves off your lawn. Large amounts of leaves left on your grass will often mean that you are res...

Many of our lawns are nearing their one or two last cuts of the year. For myself, this means that I want to finish my last cut and then push the lawn mower to the back of the garage and forget about it! Unfortunately, doing so without first properly winterizing your lawn mower, means that you could damage parts and find your mower impossible to start come spring. So, now is a great time to consider what needs done before you store your mower for winter. Here, we provide some suggestions…

Use fuel stabilizer on your final fill-up: If you are in need of some more gasoline this season to run your outdoor yard tools, then we would recommend adding fuel stabilizer to the gasoline. This additive will help keep the fuel good for up to 2 y...
