From Shurhold:
Keep Electronics Clean

 “Shurhold Industries offers Clean-N-Simple Tips for keeping valuable electronics—and almost anything else on the RV—looking its best. It's an aerosol spray that cleans, polishes and protects in one step, without any greasy residue,” said the company.


Before cleaning, lock the electronics screen being cleaned to avoid inadvertently
changing the device's settings.

“After shaking well, spray a light mist of Serious Shine directly onto the screen from
6-8 inches away. No waiting is needed before wiping with a microfiber towel. Flip the
towel to a dry surface and buff lightly. The result is a deep clean that provides an
anti-static, high gloss finish that protects from UV damage.”

 

Shurhold

Shurhold recommends microfiber towels for cleaning to trap and lift dirt, moisture, grease and oils. Shurhold's Three-Pack includes the yellow for general washing and cleaning, dark blue for polishing and shining and light blue for cleaning and wiping.

Serious Shine delivers the same benefits to a wide range of surfaces including vinyl, glass, fiberglass, rubber and stainless steel.

Inventor of the One Handle Does It All system, Shurhold manufactures specialty care items and accessories to clean, polish and detail.

Addresses Privacy In Public Restrooms/Changing Rooms:
Malish Plastics Offers Privacy Seal

Malish “Malish Plastics, a division of The Malish
Corporation, has introduced Privacy Seal, a flexible plastic product designed specifically to bridge the ‘gap’ that sometimes exists where restroom or dressing/fitting room partitions don't completely meet,” according to a press release.

"We know that many people are hesitant to use public restroom stalls or dressing rooms if they notice that the partition walls do not fully meet, providing an environment where the consumer does not feel comfortable. Privacy Seal by Malish has been designed
to solve that problem," said Mike Powe, marketing manager for Malish.

The "flex finger grip" design allows Privacy Seal to completely seal the gap with no fasteners, tape, or bolts required. Installation takes just minutes and is easy to complete. The installer measures the required length, cuts an appropriate length and presses Privacy Seal into place.

Privacy Seal is available in round or square designs in 58-inch (147cm) lengths.
