It’s that time of year again! Flowers are blooming, the sun is shinning, and the weather is warming up! Springtime is finally here! Spring is a wonderful time for so many reasons. It means summer is not far behind, as well as fun activities. Spring also means Easter is coming.

Surely, everyone has fond memories of enjoying Easter with their family during this time of year! Easter meant picking out a springtime outfit for the special day, as well as spending quality family time around the dining room table filled with delicious treats, such as a gigantic honey baked ham! Each year, looking forward to seeing the whole family at Easter. Also, enjoying running around the backyard excitedly searching for eggs filled with sweets!

As we grow older, these holiday family dinners still have a special place in our hearts! Although times have changed and we all seem to be even more busy then before, Easter is still a special event to make time for! A time to have everyone together under one roof to create lifelong memories!

Who’s getting ready for playoffs?

If you’re hosting the parties this season – don’t break the bank to make your party festive.
Bronco table

Pick any old table from your home, garage, grandmas place or your local Goodwill. By unanimous decision, I had to pick the Bronco’s (Go Denver – cough cough!) I can’t say everyone in the building was on-board but majority rules.

Touchdown!

Touchdown!

The hardest part of re-vamping this table was making sure I did the reverse stencil properly. Simply print the imagine you’d like, cut it out and practice on a piece of cardboard. It helps to find an image in the reverse color (white to black). This may ensure you cut the right pieces out. Also, if you’re using spray paint I suggest printing on paper with one adhesive side. This will make for better lines and a simpler process (less mistakes). You could also use an adhesive spray (found at a hobby store). My table needed a little sanding first (150 grit may have been too much). necessities
Before table2

In this process I learned something about Scott’s Liquid Gold Cleaner and Preservative. At least for this wood, Liquid Gold had created a scratch resistant surface. How I found out: I had used Liquid Gold on only half of the table the week prior (before and after photos). When I began sanding the table by hand, rather than sander it was quite responsive to the sand paper on the half that did not have Liquid Gold. When I got to the other half which had Liquid Gold, the sand paper hardly touched the table – I was in awe. After cleaning one half of the table with Liquid Gold, it had moisturized it enough to become scratch-resistant. I did eventually sand that half of the table, but my arm was very tired!

Enjoy the rest of regular season and Happy Holidays from everyone at Scott’s Liquid Gold!

Have a Picnic!

Does your company host an event in the summer or at the holidays?  For many years we had a huge party at the holidays and a summer bar-be-que. Due to a challenging economy, we stopped having company sponsored events a few years ago. That was, until this summer.

We decided to have a family picnic at a local park.  We played games, had a nice buffet of picnic-style food and some light entertainment.  It was great.  The evening was a bit windy but it didn’t rain and it was not 100 degrees. We all had a great time and we learned a few new things about one another. We also learned that we are more important to each other than we realized.

As a company, we learned some important lessons, too.  It is not enough to simply provide benefits and a paycheck.  It is also important to have some fun.  Have you ever heard the expression, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?” Well, we had become a dull work place.

We also learned that, it is important to know each other personally, not just professionally. This helps to people to want to work together as a team.  No one wants to let a friend down.  And that’s what we have become, friends again.

Finally, we learned that simple plans are often the best.  This is true for all companies, large and small. Have a potluck!  An event doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive to be fun.  The most important thing is to make everyone feel welcome.  Don’t forget to include the children, grandchildren and spouses!  The more, the merrier!

We have an amazing group of employees and the summer picnic began as small way of saying “Thanks” for a good well done.  In the end, we were all reminded that the workplace is a family and families need to have fun and celebrate together. We will have more parties and picnics. We shared a beautiful Colorado evening with our families and friends. What more could we have asked?

You Can Keep the Change

Growing up in Denver, Colorado, I have used Scott’s Liquid Gold my whole life.  As a teen in the 70’s, one of my chores around the house was to dust the dining room furniture. My mother is the one that introduced me to Scott’s Liquid Gold.  She used it on our ‘good’ furniture.  It always made things look great, especially a large over-sized hutch that housed the ‘good’ dishes. It made everything in the dining room look so clean and shiny.  I can still smell the original almond scent.

A French author in the 1600’s wrote, “The only thing constant in life is change.”  Pretty astute for a guy from the 1600’s.  But not all change is for the better.  A one pound can of green beans now weighs 14.5 ounces.  The average price for a movie ticket has gone from about $1.50 in 1970 to nearly $8.

Coming soon to a store near you – A NEW look for Scott’s Liquid Gold!

Fortunately Scott’s Liquid Gold has not really changed much in the last 40 years. The can looks a little different; cleaner, brighter and fresher. But like an old friend, it is one of the things I can count on in an ever-changing world.  I still use Liquid Gold to dust the dining room furniture and I have taught my daughter to do the same.  It still leaves my furniture clean and shiny.  It still has that warm, familiar almond scent.  I’m not sure people still do chores, dust a hutch or use the ‘good’ dishes but if they do I hope they are also using Scott’s Liquid Gold in their home.  It’s tried and true and works just as well today as it did when I used to dust the hutch.

To Wax or Not to Wax

Would you light a candle and then spread the wax all over your dining room table? If you are using wax on your favorite natural wood furniture then that’s exactly what you are doing. Wax is more harmful to wood than it is beneficial. Anything made of natural wood needs to breathe. It also needs an occasional infusion of moisture to look it’s best and maintain the warm rich look. Putting wax on natural wood simply creates a surface barrier and prevents the wood from breathing. It does not allow moisture or natural oil to penetrate the surface. Wax can, in essence, smother the wood.

If you have a favorite piece that has been treated with wax and then use Scott’s Liquid Gold, the finish may begin to look cloudy and dull, as if the finish has been damaged. Actually, Liquid Gold is doing what it should. The natural solvents are eating away at the wax, trying to dissolve the wax build-up. If you want to remove wax build up, apply Liquid Gold and leave it on for some time. Buff out any remaining oil and do it again. It will take some time and several application but Scott’s Liquid Gold will remove the wax build up and bring back the warm rich glow of healthy natural wood.

The best way to care for natural wood is to dust regularly and treat it with oil like Scott’s Liquid Gold once a month or as needed to keep it from drying out. The time between applications of Liquid Gold varies based on where you live. If you live in a drier climate, you need to treat your wooden treasures more often. Using a product like Scott’s Liquid Gold cleans, moisturizes and protects all the natural wood in your home or office. It allows the wood to breathe while providing the needed moisturize. It protects the wood, naturally.

Natural wood does not like wax but it loves Scott’s Liquid Gold!

Hit the Road!

Summertime is finally here!!! Which to most Americans means it’s time to hit the road and traverse the highways of this great country to destinations unknown and as of yet undiscovered to you and your family.  Road trips are an amazing way to travel with family and friends but they can be a little less than you expected until you get where you’re going. Sometimes what’s outside your car window maybe dull and boring for hours and hours and hours and hours. So no doubt you’ll what most people of this day and age do, whip out the iPod or laptop or iPad or perhaps the portable DVD player for some entertainment, only to discover it’s so dirty you can barely see anything on its screen!

There may be your little sister’s sticky fingerprints caused by the huge chocolate bar she got at the gas station covering every inch of the screen or maybe you accidentally dribbled ice cream all over it when you fell asleep watching “Inception”. Whatever the case there’s something special that should be everyone’s glove compartments that can help, “Little” Clean Screen by Scott’s Liquid Gold! These small but powerful cleansing cloths are specially designed for use on delicate, tempered screens like those of an iPod, laptop, iPad or portable DVD player. Just take one out of its individual package and gently rub away all that dirty, disgusting-ness. Now hours of entertainment await you!
