    I was researching wood bleach, it seems to work nicely at removing stains on wood(water stains,paint etc..)

    I miss mom and pop stores, they treated you like a friend and knew what the hell they where talking about. Go to Lowes, Home Depot etc.. The store employee knows nothing about the product your looking for/wanting to buy, outside of the five minute computer training class are forced to take. It's like Wal-Marts TLE departments, they are staffed with people who know nothing about oil changes, car batteries etc.. People who worked as a door greeter or deli clerk and now playing car tech. Sure the prices are higher at mom and pop stores, but so is the customer service.
    I am glad the small town where I lived still had the local old-fashioned hardware store. Of course they had youngsters working that didn't know anything but if I had a question I would look for the older guys. I knew I would get answers and pointed to just what I needed.

    We still have two, a third one is selling off all of it's inventory(50-70% off) they are getting out of the hardware business and going with wood stoves. Before the box stores came into the city they sold wood stoves and hardware/paint. Now they just can't make any money off the hardware/paint part so they are sticking to the wood stoves, but keeping their nuts and bolts and other small items.

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!
