Home Living : August 12 2008
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 12, 2008 Brushing up » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING While a coat of paint is just like a magical makeover, preparation -- the essential ingredient for a professional paint finish -- is often described as boring, laborious, time-consuming and tedious. One of Australia's chain of DIY paint and decorator centres has released a premium preparation product that will prime, seal and undercoat in the one application. It will also stick to glossy enamel surfaces without the need for sanding and will suppress tannin bleeding. Bristol Paints' All Prep is a water-based preparation product designed for interior and exterior surfaces, including timber, aluminium, galvanised iron sheeting, cement render, concrete and paper-faced plasterboard. It is also excellent for repainting over aged solvent-based enamel to provide a sound bond for other water-based topcoats. It can also be used in high- humidity areas. All Prep has a flat finish and is touch-dry in about 30 minutes and ready for a topcoat after only two hours. Being a water-based product, it is more environmentally responsible than solvent-based equivalents. All Prep is available from all Bristol Paint and Decorator centres.

InSinkErator general manager Steve Pearse says food waste makes upto75percentofall household rubbish. ''This is a huge contributor to Australia's landfills and emits enormous amounts of greenhouse gases,'' he says. ''For every kilo of food waste that is sent to landfill, a kilo-and-a-half of greenhouse gas is emitted. ''Scientists have estimated that methane, the greenhouse gas produced by food waste, is 21 times more toxic than carbon dioxide.'' International studies find that food waste disposers, such as those made by InSinkErator, are an environmentally friendly way of getting rid of food scraps, Mr Pearse says. They use negligible amounts of water, do not overburden the sewerage system and release very few carbon emissions. Australians can help protect the environment by simply reducing the amount of food waste they send to landfill. Using a disposer is one such simple solution.
