Yogi Tea goes cold!

2019 marks a special anniversary, it was 50 years ago that Yogi Bhajan came to the west and started teaching Yoga and holistic living, for his students he served them a drink of his own infusion blend of herbs and spices and “Yogi” tea was born.

This year, Yogi have picked a leaf from Liptons tea bush and introduced a range of cold or “iced” teas to add to their ever expanding range of beverages.

Available in four delicious flavours, Hibiscus Mint with Raspberry Leaves, Mate Lemon with Green Tea, Spearmint Lemon with Peppermint and Orange Ginger with Basil.

100% organic agricultural ingredients, gluten free and vegan friendly. Each bottle also contains a hidden message of ayurvedic philosophic wisdom as practiced by Yogi Bhajan himself.

If you are an imbiber of iced teas, these new flavours bring a welcome change from the standard peach or lemon flavours currently in circulation and regular drinkers of Yogi teas will taste the familiar that is unique to Yogi tea.

On a warm day (a rarity in the UK I know) a cold iced tea really refreshes and I can see these becoming a high demand product should the weather take a turn for the warmer.

New Yogi Tea, For The Senses

Available from today, Yogi have introduced a new range of their delicious herbal teas called “For The Senses”.

Starting initially with four new and exciting flavours, what makes these blends different from the others in the Yogi range is they are made with plant essential oils, which, intensify the aroma and excite the taste buds giving a more rounded and fuller flavour.

Beginning with the “Blue” box, Pure Freshness combines the essential oils of Peppermint and Spearmint along with Ginger and Lemongrass, every sip is more refreshing than the last, keeping your taste buds tingling. A tea like a pleasant sea breeze.

Next, we have the “Purple” box, Good Night combines Lavender oil and Chamomile blossoms along with Hops to invites you to a pleasant journey to the realm of dreams. A harmonious companion for quite evening hours and a meditative end to the day.

Following on to the “Yellow” box, Pure Happiness allows your senses to soar with essential oils of refreshing lemon grass and fizzy lemon. Carefully combined with green Sencha tea and ginger, a wonderful tea experience has been created, with an aroma to conjure a smile just by preparing it.

Finally we have the “Green” box, Peaceful Moment will Enchant your senses with essential lavender oil. Carefully combined with fresh lemon balm and mild Rooibos, a wonderful tea experience has been created, allowing you to enjoy a harmonious moment of peace.

Yogi are so confident you will love For The Senses tea, they have increased the number of tea bags in the box to twenty, giving you three extra cups of this amazing tea.

Brand New Products From HG

Not often I get to say those words, HG have a tried and trusted product range and do not often add to it, but over the next few months, I will be showcasing a number of new products from HG.

Today, I am proud to introduce you to HG Drain Odour Remover.

I can’t think of many smells in the home that will singe the nose hairs as bad as drain odour, I even rate it above the Christmas dinner brussels sprout aftermath.

Smelly drains are normally due to organic buildup on the walls of the pipes and drains decomposing and while there are plenty of products to deal with a blocked drain readily available, there are not any that I know of that deal with the smell at the source.(febreeze over the plughole does not count!)

Well HG have stepped up, Drain Odour Remover is a simple little product that anyone can use, you just pour the required capfuls of granules down the plughole and wait 30 minutes and then just flush through with hot water.

The nose hair curling odour should be gone along with the deposits that caused them and replaced with a fresh clean fragrance with a hint of pine and mountain flowers.

To keep your drains and plugholes smelling fresh and clean, it is recommended to use the Drain Odour Remover at least once every 4 weeks and the 500g bottle will keep you going for 10 treatments.

So now you can save your embarrassment of unexplained nasty niffs when the Vicar calls and stop blaming the dog for the pong in the kitchen.

Kilrock Taking The Rhino By The Horn.

For years, drain unblocking products have generally had one principle ingredient, H2SO4, otherwise known as Sulfuric Acid.

In recent times, probably as a direct result of attacks using acid to do harm, the Home office have slowly and inexorably tightened controls over the sale and purchase of acid based products. In fact there is rumored legislation being drafted to ban the sale of Acid based cleaners and unblockers sometime in the next 12 months.

For a while now, one of the best and strongest drain unblockers currently on the market has been Rhino Drain Unblocker made by Kilrock Manufacturing, it contains close to 85% sulfuric acid and will literally eat through just about anything you may have stuck down your drain. This, however, causes a problem for Kilrock as the product will be banned under the rumored new legislation.

In order to address the problem, the big brains over at Kilrock came up with an alternative solution that did not impact the effectiveness of the unblocker but also does not use acid as it’s primary ingredient.

Introducing

Rhino Drain Unblocker Non-Acid Formula

Still as effective as the acid based version but there is no acid used in its formulation. Instead it makes use of Sodium Hydroxide to dissolve the organic matter that causes the blockage in the drain. Sodium Hydroxide is one of those unobtrusive chemicals found in everyday objects like soap, air filters, cleaning agents and food preparation materials. It is more commonly known as caustic soda or lye.

While not based on an acid compound, it is recommended you take the same care when using it and always fully read the label before use.

If the legislation comes to pass, acid based products will become a thing of the past and it will be up to companies like Kilrock to come up with alternatives like this one to fill the gap.

ThermalDry. Something New and Truly Unique From Wykamol

Call me a jaded old cynic, but it is not often I get excited about new products now, they all use wording like ground breaking or revolutionary and usually they are just variations on an already established theme or “oh look, it’s blue now” or “Didn’t this use to be bigger?”. So when this product from Wykamol came across my desk, I was prepared to be, shall we say, unenthusiastic, then I read what it does.

WOW!!

Wykamol No More Damp ThermalDry Anti-Condensation Coating 

“What makes this any different from the other anti-mould and damp paints they do?” it is the word THERMAL.

Below is the “technical” explanation from Wykamol on how this works.

Thermaldry incorporates Micro-Technology in the form of hollow glass beads, with a size of 50 um and a crush strength of 500 psi. The micro, hollow glass beads act like miniature ‘Thermos Flasks’, blocking thermal energy by reflecting it away from the wall and protecting the walls from damp, which causes moisture and therefore mould growth.

All of these properties combined enables Thermaldry to increase the wall temperature, thus reducing the ‘dew point’ or the temperature at which condensation occurs.

In basic terms it warms up your wall to stop condensation from forming and thus giving mould the conditions needed to grow in.

When applied, the walls feel warm to the touch and Wykamol even say it may save you money by reducing thermal conductivity by 4 times, saving energy and fuel costs in your home. Best of all, you do not need to remove the old finish either, just apply over the top.

It can be applied over existing paint or wall paper, plaster, brick, concrete, metal and plastic and itself can then be papered or painted over with the colour of your choice and it will not effect how it works in the slightest.

Available as a 5 litre tub, it will give you a coverage of 4-5m² /Litre depending on the porosity of the substrate.

I think the word that sums up just how much of a leap forward this product is, is, revolutionary!

A real game changer, you mark my words.

New Products From HG

This does not happen often, HG Hagesan are a company who strongly believe in the old addage “if it ain’t broke etc” and so do not often produce new products. A couple of weeks back, however, we had a surprise package from them with a whole load of new products for your delight and delectation.

Without further ado, here they are.

First up we have

HG Hagesan Ironing Spray 500ml

This half litre of magic has been produced to make ironing a breeze. It ensures that even the crinkliest fabrics, such as cotton, silk, linen and viscose can be ironed smoother than ever before.
The product has a fresh fragrance and makes it possible to iron at a lower temperature, which means the fabric lasts longer.
The electricity consumption of the iron reduces too and the base stays cleaner much longer.

Next we have,

HG Hagesan Screen Cleaner Spray 125ml

HG screen cleaner cleans Plasma, TFT, LED and LCD screens safely and without leaving any streaks at all.

Next up is,

HG Hagesan Drain Odour Remover Granules 500g

HG drain odour remover makes sure a smelly kitchen or bathroom drain smells fresh again.
The kitchen or bathroom drain may start to smell because of dirt deposits on the walls.
This product thoroughly removes the deposits that cause this odour and the drains smell fresh again.

Next is,

HG Hagesan Detergent Additive Against Unpleasant Odours in Sports Clothing 500g

Unpleasant odours in sports clothing, caused by perspiring whilst playing sports or because the clothing stayed too long in the sports bag, in the laundry basket or stayed wet in the washing machine, will not be removed properly with just the main detergent.
These unpleasant odours become noticeable as soon as the washed clothing is ironed or worn.
This product removes those unpleasant odours and is therefore ideal for thoroughly removing any odours from towels, for example, that no longer smell fresh despite having been washed.

Also new is,

HG Hagesan Perspiration and Deodorant Stain Remover Spray 250ml

Perspiration and deodorant can cause persistent yellow stains in fabrics.
These stains cannot be removed with ordinary detergents or stain removers.
HG perspiration and deodorant stain remover is THE effective pre-treatment for removing such stains and is suitable for white and coloured fabrics.
Using this product before every wash also prevents these types of stains.

Next up,

HG Hagesan For Smelly Dishwashers Powder 500g

Dishwashers do not always smell terribly fresh and at times they simply stink.
This is caused by grease, food and soap deposits in the drains, on the filters and on the rubber seals.
HG for smelly dishwashers removes those deposits effectively and produces a dishwasher that smells wonderfully fresh again for a long period of time.
Using this product also improves hygiene and produces cleaner dishes.
Because of its unique formula this product can be used in a full or an empty dishwasher.

Also in,

HG Hagesan Mattress Freshener Spray 500ml

HG mattress freshener is for regular and convenient freshening up of a mattress.
Over time mattresses can start to smell less fresh due to night-time perspiration, but particularly due to heavy perspiration during flu, urine loss or vomit.
This organic product based on enzymes and microbes does not mask odours but removes them effectively.

Along with,

HG Hagesan Barbecue Cleaner Spray 500ml

Removes caked-on and burnt-in grease from gas and solid fuel barbecues.
The effect of HG barbecue cleaner is enhanced by heating the surfaces that require cleaning to a lukewarm temperature.

also,

HG Hagesan Laminate Cleaner 1 Litre Product 72

HG laminate cleaner (product 72) is a wonderfully fresh-scented and concentrated mopping cleaner for all types of laminate flooring.
This mopping cleaner is for safe, thorough and streak-free cleaning without building up shine.
1 litre is sufficient for 20 washes.

Here too is,

HG Hagesan Vacuum Cleaner Air Freshener Crystals 180g

HG vacuum cleaner air freshener removes smells from the vacuum cleaner and ensures that the vacuum cleaner produces fresh air. The product is suitable for all types of vacuum cleaners with a bag or dust container. Vacuum cleaners may start to smell, because the dirt may stay in the bag or the container for a long time during normal use. During vacuuming, the air flows past the sucked up dirt and therefore the musty, acrid smell comes out via the vacuum cleaner’s air exhaust. Pet hairs in particular are a source of this smell, even when you empty the dust container or change the bag regularly.

Also new,

HG Hagesan Suntan Lotion Stain Remover Spray 250ml

Suntan lotion or oil may cause yellow stains in fabrics.
These stains cannot be removed with ordinary detergent or stain remover.
HG suntan lotion stain remover is THE effective pre-treatment for removing such stains and is suitable for white and coloured fabrics.

HG Hagesan Oven and Grill Revamp Kit 600ml

The HG oven & grill revamp kit is a complete kit that will make your oven, grill, baking trays, barbecue grills and planchas look like new.

More new products than you can shake a stick at, probably means you won’t see anymore for a year or more but for now a lot to be going on with.

Sealing Your Natural Stone Just Got Easier.

Until now, sealing your natural stone was, let’s face it, a palarva, a faff, a lot of mucking about, a right royal pain in the !!naughty word deleted!!- Admin.

It usually involved lots of liquids, time, effort, swearing at the dog for walking across the still wet floor, effort and did I mention time?

Well, those boffins over the pond at Granite Gold have finally found a solution, much to the relief of natural stone owners and dog lovers everywhere. Literally just off the boat, it is my pleasure to introduce to you… drumroll please……

Granite Gold Sealer Wipes.

For the first time, you can dispense with the liquids, now you can seal your stone with a wipe, the re-sealable pack comes with 6 pre-moistened sealer wipes, all you do is literally wipe and buff dry with a lint free or microfibre cloth.

Clean the surface first, it is recommended to use Granite Gold Daily Cleaner, take a wipe and use immediately, Do Not let it dry on the surface of the stone, buff dry. Job done

If you need to repeat the process, wait 20 minutes between applications. Thats it, no waiting for it to dry before you can use it, just make sure you give it 24 hours before applying any polish or cleaners to let the protective surface cure.

The best thing is, they are not just for floors, got a natural stone worktop in the kitchen, no problem, they are food safe and non toxic, they are pH balanced and non acidic so they wont damage your skin, biodegradable and completely phosphate and ammonia free, so no funny chemical smells.

Every now and again, a product comes along that really does change the way we do things and this is one of them.
