No more harsh chemicals

If you have a hot tub or spa, and you are currently using Chlorine, Bromine, or some other harsh chemical disinfectant, consider switching over to a natural treatment system.

Imagine soaking in a hot tub that smells like… nothing! No chlorine smell left on your skin, no drying out affect, just clean, silky, clear water. Well, imagine no more.

I’ve even seen people prancing between puddles on their tip toes so their fine leather shoes wet. How funny is that? Continue reading

Dont Diet, Save Money, Lose Weight (DDSMLW)

shakeRaise your hand if you’ve ever been on a diet…

Keep your hand up if one of your new year’s resolutions is to lose weight…
