Rail Zip is a great product for cleaning and maintaining smooth tracks for trains and slot cars.  It is a highly concentrated track cleaner and corrosion inhibitor that can be used anywhere you find electrical connections, plugs and fuses.  It penetrates through corrosion and restores electrical conductivity while eliminating any arching or sparking.  A little bit of Rail Zip goes a long way.  Check out this awesome video by model train expert, Mike Fifer, for excellent tips for track maintenance!

Note:  Rail Zip is also a great product for maintaining outdoor light fixtures.  Use it anywhere you have the potential for electrical contact and corrosion problems.

It’s winter, but it’s never too early to begin thinking about spring!  Here’s a great craft idea that will keep you busy all winter long and add glitz and glamour to your garden come springtime.  This gorgeous pot was made by spray painting a clay pot white and then trimming the sides with jewel-like, flat-sided marbles.  The marbles can be attached using a clear silicone sealant or epoxy … both provide more outdoor protection from weathering than traditional glues.

We think adding beads, buttons, jewels, small ornaments or even natural items like beans, peas, or small rocks to your outdoor pots would look great as well!

If you decorate an outdoor flower pot using either our silicone sealant or epoxy as the adhesive, send us your story, along with a picture of your project and you may win free samples!
