When Hitting The Slopes, Grit Got You In A Bind?

Somerville, NJ (February 2002) – Before the beginning of each ski season, Scott Dillman has a trick to clean ski bindings so completely that it won him a portable CD player.

His prize-winning secret: Dillman initially cleans his equipment with a compressed-gas product, Dust-Off®, most often used to blow away dust on computers. Dillman’s advice qualified him for one of 101 portable CD player in a new-uses contest sponsored by Dust-Off’s manufacturer.

“I would blow the grit out of my ski bindings before relubricating them,” he explains. “I especially check them at the beginning of the season.”

Most often found in office-supply stores, Dust-Off was invented in the 1970s so news photographers could safely clean negatives and camera equipment. The Grand-Prize winner, announced last month, won a home electronics package worth $3,000 for his suggested use: cleaning automobile air vents.
