    I would strongly advise against dumping a whole can down your drain, but even if every single household spritzed all their toilet bowls with it once a week (no one cleans their toilets more than once a week) you're still talking about dilution factors of many, many millions. The average American family uses 300 gal/day.

    Pumice stones (available at any hardware store and probably grocery stores) are the real hack for cleaning accumulated stains on toilet bowls, they work amazingly well. And I think less work, given you only need to do it every several months, versus having to spray the bowl constantly.

    Really? Obviously just the liners get them good and floppy then toss in the baked shells fresh out of the oven and strap em on for 10-15 minutes?

    Iíve done the rice thing to warm the liners before and it was kind of a pain in the ass.

    Be curious to know if anyone else has had success this way or if itís really better to heat liners, insert in cold shell and buckle up for 10 mins.... then bake shells and put newly molded liners in and buckle up for 10 more mins.

    Iím ALL about saving time and getting these tight ass boots feeling like my comfy old ones.

    Our shit plant serves about 300 homes, most part time resident. You wash one stain brush in the sink and it fucks with the ecology. I'm no expert and this is at 8K ft and very low water temps but it does fuck with the bugs.

    Think he's pondering the cheezy "Melt fit" technique because boot fitters are expensive. It'll be funny if a boot fitter chimes in to suggest grinding hot spots with a pumice wheel, like sum 70s plug shells.

    That is definitely about as small as municipal WWTPs get.

    My Hawx shells were heat moldble and done at same time as liners.

    But most ski boots don't/haven't.

    You're going to want to put a big ice pack around the shells while you're still in them if you do heat them though.

    Or, I don’t have local access to a TRg approved boot fitter. And heat molding is how these Sollys work - shells and liners.

    Bonus points to the first mag to heat mold boots and liners by preheating their entire boots in a clothes dryer. Please video this if you try it.

    Ya, I have Hawx Magna 130s. Moldable. You have to be careful. I think the heels came out a whisker sloppy, however the toebox is spot on. It's a nightmare punching the toebox for my feet, so I'll take it. Happy feet.

    sounds a lot like using a dry cleaner to reglue skins.

    That’s a stud finder too far.

    You got the Solly Chollys? Or Solly Mahles?

    Mahles are go-fast go-to.
