Definition of the day: Pumice - a by-product of volcanic activity that provides the mildly abrasive quality in the Lava Bar and Lava Liquid soaps. The name Lava was chosen to remind users of the volcanic pumice contained in the soap.

Car Care Tip: Don’t forget to protect the interior of your car just as much as you do the exterior. Use a window deflector screen for your dashboard and apply a UV protectant to protect the plastic and vinyl from damage.

#ProPainters: When painting, try to get as much paint on the brush as possible, without dripping on your floor. Dip your brush about 1½ inches into the paint, and then tap each side of the brush against the side of the can. For any paint left on your hands, clean it up with Lava Soap.

#ProMechanics: Regardless of the season, highly humid air can make starting your vehicle much more difficult since moist air trapped in the ignition system can become a barrier to transmitting energy. To help, we recommend spraying WD-40 under the distributor cap and into the body of the distributor. How do you prepare for better electrical contact?
