Cleaning Tools, Or Restoring Homes, Blast Of Gas Moves Projects Along
Somerville, NJ (February 2002) – John Clark of Chelsea, Maine, was stymied by all the tiny cracks when trying to repaint his old home. Caroline Weaver of Golden, Colo., likewise battled dirt-filled grooves and holes during woodworking projects.
Both independently arrived at a similar solution. Each won a portable CD player from the manufacturer of Dust-Off® as the compressed-gas manufacturer sought novel uses other than cleaning computers.
Clark’s tip: Use the compressed-gas duster to help wet paint penetrate tiny cracks and grooves in narrow corners. “The ease of controlling the blast of gas is much greater than trying to maneuver a bulky paint brush in such tight corners,” he wrote.
Weaver’s advice: Use the duster regularly to clean out small cracks, holes and grooves in wood products. “After we are finished,” she added, “we use Dust-Off to clean all of our tools and supplies.”
Dust-Off was invented in the 1970s so news photographers could safely clean negatives and camera equipment. The Grand-Prize winner, announced in January, won a home electronics package worth $3,000 for his suggested use: cleaning automobile air vents.
