Tips from Toby – Cold Fire, CO2 & Dry Times!
Holiday guests will be arriving soon. What would you do if you had a kitchen fire? Do you have a fire extinguisher? If so - does it work or do you know where it is? This week we show you the new technology being used by Missouri and Kansas Highway patrol. Cold Fire extinguishers are all natural and easy to spray fast. You can even spray them safely on your body and walk through a fire and hopefully avoid injury. Too many people have already been hospitalized or even died from CO2 poisoning this season. Don't think you are immune. From a blocked chimney to a small crack in your furnace - it's easy to be breathing harmful air that can quickly take a life. Know what to do now. And finally - it's been a dry November. We still need to water if you can. Do it this week!
E15 Ethanol Fuel Warnings!
The new E15 Ethanol blends that are making their way to our gas pumps are not made to work for our mowers, string trimmers, and even some cars. The breakdown of the fuel begins very quickly and can add water to the mix during the breakdown.
This can burn out your engine or parts, damage older cars or not even allow your equipment to start. There's a lot to learn and some easy steps to avoid very costly problems. Watch the video tip now to learn all you need to know.
