Know What Is In Your Drain

Know What Is In Your Drain
From the friendly folks at the ACE in West Lake. She tells us that it is important to know what is clogging your drain before putting anything down your pipes. Sage advise, indeed. Kitchen clogs tend to be food stuff and grease that require a solution all their own. Bathrooms tend to have hair clogging the pipes, and this, as this friendly fo [...]

That Isn’t A Snake It’s A Zip-It
The good folks at the Hot and Handy Show give a fairly detailed tutorial on how to unclog your drains. She refers to Zip-It as a “plastic snake”. While we appreciate the association with our larger siblings, we would prefer to keep things informal: you can call us “Zip-It”. Good stuff at 1:15. (function(d, s, id) { [...]

Oooooh chile

Oooooh chile
There is a trend in the kinky haired community to let your hair do what your hair is naturally inclined to do (I let my hair do the same thing, but it’s kinda wavy and sticks straight up – and I wouldn’t change a thing – but I digress). These ladies are proud of what they have and love showing it off, and we love ever [...]

“How To” Built Into The D...

“How To” Built Into The Display
This is great. The best time to answer a question is before it is asked. You can almost picture it. Someone steps up to this display and says, “Well, how does this thing work?’ and then looking up saying, “Oh”. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; j [...]

Curly and Proud

Curly and Proud
It may come as no surprise, but we love people with curly hair. Long, thick, naturally curly hair. The curlier the better. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t have any problem with bald people. We love bald people too. It’s just that bald people look at Zip-It and say “So, what do you want me to do with this, then?” But [...]

Hard To Miss

Hard To Miss
Home Depot has some really nice Zip-It displays in their stores. Usually at the end of an aisle. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=437449662963160"; fjs.parentNode.inser [...]

She Found Her Earring!

She Found Her Earring!
This gal had lost an earring. One of her favorites (I’m guessing). A couple of good tugs with her trusty Zip-It and she found her long lost jewelry. Good stuff at :34. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.fac [...]

Zip-It On A Strip

Zip-It On A Strip
This is what a Zip-It display looks like when they hang them from a strip. They are usually on a shelving upright. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=437449662963160"; fj [...]

Who IS Sugar?

Who IS Sugar?
This is whoissugar (I believe that name is rhtorical). She is extolling the virtues of Zip-It to her followers. If you pay close attention you might just get some shampoo and conditioner tips as well. Now, whoissugar doesn’t actually show Zip-It in use, but she’s giving us a shout-out, so we’d figure we’d shout back. [...]

The Devo Reference

The Devo Reference
The good folks at Shelterrific.com channeled the famed song from Devo to exhort our favorite tool: When a clogged drain comes along, you must zip-it Now Zip-it! Zip-it good! Sorry — as a big DEVO fan, I had to. But seriously, can we talk about how brilliant the Zip-it is? Yes, you most certainly can! And for those of you who may now have that [...]
