Hi all. Has anyone ever seen the ballast bags used on the skirts of awnings to keep them in place. They are made of heavy duty clear plastic with a seal which means you can fill with water when required and then empty out when you are packing up.
I first seen them on a visit to Forfar and went to speak to the owner the next morning and of course he had moved on...typical..... I have asked at various shows and shops but although some had heard of them nobody knows of a supplier.
Any help would be great.

:Cool: On Camping Almafra they use Drinking water bottles after they are empty. Usually they get thrown in the Bin. Makes sense to refill them with tap water and use them to hold down Awnings, tents etc. :winky:

Properly Clean Your Rocks

Step1
Hold the specimen in your hand. Vices can damage the rock.
Step2
Remove loose debris using the awl or pointed scrapers. Discard the loose debris.
Step3
Remove debris from crevices using tweezers. You can also use tweezers to gently grip any small rock specimens.
Step4
Use the brushes after removing all debris. The brushes can be used in conjunction with alcohol or distilled water to further the cleaning process.
Step5
Find out the chemical composition of your rocks. If you plan to use liquids for cleaning, knowing the composition beforehand can prevent damage to the rock.
Step6
Clean some stones in distilled water using the sturdy brush. Types include quartz, topaz, tourmaline, garnet, beryl and spodumene.
Step7
Protect delicate rocks. For example, calcite should only be cleaned using distilled water and the sable brush.
Step8
Save alcohol for the sulfates group. When cleaning gypsum, for example, it is safe and recommended that you use alcohol.
