The husband is messy.

Tailgating Challenge

Tailgating Challenge, a place for people who live to tailgate. They share photos and ideas from all angles of tailgating to help spark your tailgate to reach the next level. This month they did an impressive review of SpillFix.

SpillFix Review

Have you spilled something before at your last tailgate or camping event and had trouble cleaning it up? What comes to my mind is spilling gasoline, lighter fluid, grease, you name it, it can be spilled and could ruin your awesome day. We were sent some of the new SpillFix organic absorbent to test out. We put it to the test in regular day to day life, as well as a potential situation that could arise at your tailgate/camping event.

This was used in an industrial shop where we were able to clean up multiple types of chemical and paint spills. The feedback from the employees that used this in the shop was great. I then took SpillFix to a test that’s more near and dear to each of our hearts. Many of us have used a generator at some point in our life and maybe you’ve spilled some gasoline when trying to fill it up? I created a gasoline spill and used SpillFix to safely and easily aborb the gasoline to be easily wiped up and disposed of.

PROS: helps with many types of spills both at your tailgate or in the shop

CONS: have to remember to take it with you to the tailgate and depending on the surface and spill type SpillFix may not be able to completely eliminate the stain/smell ie: gasoline on plastic.

OSHA releases long-awaited final rule on silica

Washington – OSHA has released its final rule on protecting workers from exposure to silica, marking the agency’s first updated regulation for the material since 1971.

The agency estimates that the rule will save more than 600 lives and prevent more than 900 cases of silicosis – an incurable lung disease – each year. The rule also is intended to help protect against lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease.

silicaDust-bThe new permissible exposure limit for respirable crystalline silica – 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air averaged during an 8-hour shift – matches what NIOSH recommended in 1974. OSHA’s new PEL is half the previous limit for general industry and 5 times lower than the previous limit for construction.

“Unfortunately, it has taken over 40 years for the politics to catch up with the science,” Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez said during a March 24 press conference. “In the meantime, the industry has changed, technology has progressed, businesses have innovated. A good government also adapts, even if it’s long overdue.” [read full story]

SpillFix on The Today Show with Hoda Kotb & Steve Greenberg

SpillFix found phenomenal attention last Friday when it was demonstrated by Steve Greenberg on NBC’s the Today morning show. Hoda commented that she was amazed she had not heard about SpillFix and called it a “Miracle Spill Fixer”. Check out the Today Show video clip from The Today Show with Steve Greenberg, Hoda Kotb, and Andy Grammer! SpillFix was called a miraculous product and is available for only $5.99 from Jegs.

  • No waiting – the immediate high-absorbency of SpillFix means the mess is cleaned up in no time at all.
  • No residue – the complete absorbency of SpillFix eliminates all spill-residue, so the area is rendered safe and non-slippery immediately.
  • Diverse usability – SpillFix has multiple applications other than spill clean up. It can be used as a reusable waterless cleaner for hands, tools and equipment.

SpillFix

SpillFix was one thing I was happy to get for the guys to try out. They are always working on their cars in the garage, and sometimes when they are changing the oil, it gets everywhere and some of you may know how hard it is to get off your driveway or in your garage.

I was sent over their SpillFix 3 quart shaker jar. Let’s just say I put their product to the test to see how good it would work on oil and other things. Here are some of the things they say its good for, and yes I tried some of them out, oil, auto fluids, hazardous liquids and unused paint in the garage – to grease and spills in your kitchen, laundry room and basement.

We cook a lot, and having a lot of girls in the kitchen, we do you tend to knock things off the counter. A bottle of Vegetable Oil got knocked off the counter and it was everywhere. I tried to clean it up with a towel and it didn’t work. My mom suggested that we try the SpillFix. [Read full story]
