Use Furniture polish or Pine Gel.

Pine Gel last longer and keep "Bucks" away.

We "Springclean" once a week on Thursdays and then everything is standing outside while " MA" is doing inside and I am doing outside.

"Dubbin" will also work, but this product will cause a bit of Olyness and excess dust.

I haven't found anything that would soften plastic except heat.  According to my experience if that plastic has hardened overtime, the only thing hat will restore it is replacement.

Please try the above suggestions and give us some feedback please

Ek vermoed Dubbin sal die uitweg wees.

Smeer hom goed en laat dit lê of staan in goeie son vir so dag.

- Neem ń sagte lappie en "vryf" dit af om ontslae te raak van olierigheid vir stof.

- Laat dit nog lê en staan in son vir ń dag en "vee" die finale af.

Wat gebruik julle om dit te voorkom?

Ek het gelukkig dit n8e op die 3B nie en verkies dit so want dit werk net teen my geduld.  Op hierdie sykant het ek net 'n paal deur wat aan die kante met 'n reguit pen vas slaan en die kant bly so ook in die wind.

Oppad na die volgende kamp.

Willem, het jy 'n soom laat insit waar die paal deurdruk.

 

Sê dankie vir wat jy in die lewe het.

Hennie dit is Gazebo kante wat ek self gemaak pas het, ja daar is 'n soom onder waardeur ek 'n paal druk wat net op die punte vas gekap word met 'n reguit pen.

Ne, glad nie.

As my vrou klaar is spuit sy "Exterior Bio-Kill" vir miere en ander insekte.

Ek spuit die "Bio-Kill" aan my storm straps en waaraan hulle vanaf ń boom afkom asook in my extrusions.
