Hand Sewing and Waxed Thread - Bond Products Inc

Hand Sewing and Waxed Thread - Bond Products Inc | Small Business Services | Scoop.it
Bond Products offers a number of different hand-sewing, waxed thread and needles for any of our customers with hand-sewing needs. We also have hand sewing gloves that will make the job of sewing hard-backed carpet together much easier on your hands. Most carpet installation today is done with either nails or hot glue, so what kinds of jobs require waxed thread? Back in the day, carpet fitters’ apprentices would show that they had mastered the art of sewing carpets together by making a tool bag out of carpet scraps. Now, however, most carpet fitters do not use this skill. In terms of carpet installation, hand sewing can be used to excellent effect around bull-nose stairs because the hand sewing reduces the damage to the stairs and provides a better finish with without a nailed cap and band. Hand sewing also works for smaller jobs that require special care or for which a heat seamer is impractical or undesirable. Specialty carpets are often hand sewn. Here’s a video of Bob Vila from This Old House demonstrating how fancy patterned Wilton carpets are sewn together for the renovation of a high-style house from the early 1800s. Another good use of waxed thread is for the job of re-fringing an antique rug. It’s important to make sure that the edge of the rug will not unravel and that the replacement fringe you purchase will not fray either. Hand sewing a blanket stitch along the damaged area of the rug using waxed thread will help preserve the rug and reinforce the edge. The next step is to hand sew the replacement fringe to the base of the existing one and double-stitch the overlapping ends of the fringe to prevent it from fraying. Why is waxed thread so useful? The wax layer makes the thread stiffer and more resistant to both water and mildew, so it’s longer lasting. The reason that a carpet fitter uses this for hand sewing is that the wax can leave a residue when it’s used in machine sewing. It can also melt when it’s heated. This kind of thick, sturdy thread can be used for a variety of craft projects as well, including: leather working, jewelry making, saddlery, upholstery, and taxidermy. Check out Bond Products catalog of supplies for any of your carpet working or installing needs. If you need something to install or repair carpet, we have it.

Protecting Your Oral Health into Old Age - Dental Associates of West Michigan

Protecting Your Oral Health into Old Age - Dental Associates of West Michigan | Small Business Services | Scoop.it
Only a few generations ago, older people regularly lost many, most, or even all of their teeth. Dentures were commonplace, and most people considered them inevitable. Fortunately, better and more regular dental care as well as fluoride in water and toothpaste have lessened gradual decay and minimized cavities for much of the population. Older people can still have healthy and effective teeth for their entire lives now. This is important for several reasons. First, oral health and general health are linked. So much bacteria enters the body through the mouth. If people do not try to fight bacterial plaque with

Tips for Keeping Your Area Rugs Clean - Bond Products Inc

Tips for Keeping Your Area Rugs Clean - Bond Products Inc | Small Business Services | Scoop.it
After you’ve found a beautiful area rug, and placed it in the perfect spot in your home, you’ll want to make sure you keep it nice so you can enjoy it for many years to come. The best rugs are art, after all, and art deserves to be respected and preserved. So what are some things you can do to maintain your rugs and keep them looking beautiful? Keep the dirt out of your house The best way to protect your rugs from the moisture, dirt, and pollen that will cause them to degrade over time is to limit their exposure to these things. Many cultures have the practice of removing shoes at the door so that dirt cannot be tracked in. In some of these countries that habit is entirely pragmatic since they do not have vacuum cleaners. Beating out a rug can be a huge job, but even in places with modern cleaning machinery, it’s best to stop dirt at the door. Put down a mat, and suggest your family and friends place their shoes on it. If the dirt makes it past the door, however, it’s still not too late. Regular sweeping of your floors will protect your rugs and will help keep pollution and allergens out of your home’s circulating air. Vacuum Most of us should be grateful for vacuum cleaners. They make our lives so much easier and cleaner. Are you vacuuming your rugs enough, though? Embedded dirt is worse for your rugs than surface dirt and harder to get out. Make sure you are vacuuming both the front and the reverse sides of your rugs as both get dirty over time, and work at least a weekly vacuuming into your cleaning schedule for best results. Deep cleaning Sometimes vacuuming just isn’t enough – you need to deep clean. If you have pets, young children prone to spilling sticky drinks, or have large or ground-in stains, you’ll have to either rent a steamer or call a professional. There is definitely a cost difference between the two, so factor in how valuable your rug is before deciding, but any carpet you want to keep for a long time will have to be deep cleaned every 12-18 months. Flip your carpet The traffic patterns of your house will wear a carpet down a certain way, so it’s good to turn the carpet around every 6 months in order to better distribute the wear. Sun can also be another concern. If only a part of a rug is in the sun, the fading will be noticeable over time. Turning it will help minimize fading and keep the whole looking beautiful. All of the above tips are good things to keep in mind if you have made an investment in your floors. Cleaning and vacuuming more often will also help your home environment to be more healthy and free from the dirt and allergens rugs can trap. Keep yourself, your family, and your rugs in better condition with some easy regular maintenance.
