Easy-to-use Wearmax Scratch™ Concealer keeps hardwood floors looking simply beautiful!

wearmax imageFor weeks, I have been readying the house for Easter. As always, we are hosting the big celebration and are anticipating at least 45 friends and family members for a festive buffet dinner.

This weekend, I finished the gardens… weeding, mulching and trimming shrubs. But, as the day grows closer, I am focusing more intensely on some interior projects that are long overdue. High on the list are repairing the scratches on our floors that really mar the beauty of the hardwoods.

The last time we had our floors professionally sanded, stained and sealed was over 5 years ago. And… life in our house has a tendency to take its toll on the floors!

Luckily, there are no deep gouges. But, the nicks and scratches that show up as “white” look so awful! Of course, I am not alone. This happens to most hardwood floors, especially those finished with Aluminum Oxide. (And, today, more than 95% of pre-finished flooring uses Aluminum Oxide in the finish!)

Up until now, a touch up stick (really designed for furniture) was my only solution. Although this dyed the scratch, making it less noticeable, the scratch itself was still “open.”  And, those scratches have a tendency to gather dirt and debris, making the floor harder to clean.

But, I recently discovered The Wearmax Scratch™ Concealer to not only conceal, but also seal, those scratches – protecting my investment and making my floors look almost new again!

The Wearmax Scratch™ Concealer is a patent pending product and is the first ever hardwood flooring finish in a bottle. It eliminates the white lines that appear when a scratch is made on the floor. And, this product is cured under ambient light, creating a permanent seal that won’t wash away.

The Wearmax Scratch™ Concealer works on 99% of hardwood floors including those finished with Aluminum Oxide and even old, original flooring that is finished on-site, like mine. Flooring finished on-site is typically finished with a poly-urethane, so while the white lines are not quite as noticeable, the scratches should still be sealed.

I found this product incredibly easy to use. Simply apply the concealer to the scratch (a little goes a long way). Wipe off the excess (make sure you wear gloves). Allow it to cure in regular ambient light and do not apply in direct sunlight or use for exterior applications. Done!

I have been obsessively sealing scratches throughout the entire house and the floors haven’t looked this pristine in years!

It’s important to note that The Wearmax Scratch™ Concealer is not a filler, so while it will improve the look of deeper scratches it will not physically fill in a dent or deep gouge. The product will, however, eliminate the “white” and help conceal the scratch when viewed from a normal standing position.

Also, this product works best on light to medium colored floors. If you have darker natural or espresso colored floors, you will want to “color in” to match with a touch up stick before you seal it.

The Wearmax Scratch™ Concealer normally retails for $29.99, however, right now you can get yours for only $24.99. And, if you’re not thrilled with the results, Wearmax offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

So, now that my garden is presentable and my floors are gorgeous again, I am thinking about painting the kitchen…

Win this smart Jewelry Travel Organizer from DK Products and arrive in style!

Jewelry Travel Organizer from DK products fits everyone in one self contained unit. Smart!Today, one of my closest friends left for a 10-day trip to Scotland. Another gal-pal informed me over drinks this week that she is headed to England for Easter. And, my closest co-worker only recently returned from Paris!

All this talk of international travel (and especially the pics from Paris) has left me longing for a trip. With more snow melting every day and the sun beginning to make an appearance, I am more than ready to escape from my cozy cocoon and go somewhere fun!

Of course, a trip involves a lot of planning and, naturally, a bit of shopping! A few new clothes, a handbag, and some trendy jewelry are all necessities. And, to keep everything separate and safe in transit, I have some new packing cubes for shoes and sundries, as well as a wonderful Jewelry Travel Organizer from DK Products Group’s Specialty Styles.

This Jewelry Travel Organizer is not only adorable and pink (my signature color) it’s so well designed and useful. The case keeps jewelry together in your travel bags, so necklaces won’t become hopelessly tangled and earrings won’t lose their mates.

This organizer has the perfect space for every type of jewelry. Necklace snaps at the top and bottom ensure that there are no tangles. Soft fabric covers the chains to any eliminate scratching. Rings can be safely stored on a padded bar (especially helpful for rings with stones). And, earrings are efficiently organized two-by-two on a punched earring holder. There are even three zippered pockets for miscellaneous items like brooches and scarf clips.

This Jewelry Travel Organizer had three pieces that hold enough jewelry for even the longest trip. And, only $19.99!Plus, there are two separate 4” velveteen pouches for larger pieces, like bracelets or statement necklaces. If you have Pandora or Trollbead style bracelets with interchangeable beads, these pouches are a lifesaver and allow you to carry an entire wardrobe of bead choices in one small pouch.

And, the loops on the pouches can be secured under the snap (on the outside of the jewelry travel organizer) to keep all pieces safely stowed together.

The Jewelry Travel Organizer is very lightweight and can easily fit into a carry-on bag for air travel. In recent years, I have stopping packing any items of value (even costume jewelry) for fear that they may not be in my bag when I arrive at my destination. So, this piece is a very smart solution.

In fact, it’s light enough to pop in an oversized tote for weekend trips or even a large handbag for overnights. Retail $19.99

To purchase the The Jewelry Travel Organizer, visit Specialty Styles. While you are there, don’t forget to check out their other solutions for organized daily living like the scarf/tie hanger (a must-have for me). There are even organization tips to help you organize your home like a pro.

Now, one lucky Susan Said…WHAT?! reader will win her very own Jewelry Travel Organizer!
