Rick & Thousands Plunge for Charity!

When most people are still sleeping in after a party-filled evening, Rick Seidman, President of Quoizel, and thousands of others continue to ring in the New Year with a frigid plunge in the ocean on Sullivan’s Island.

The Polar Bear Plunge event is in its 19th year and raises funds for the Special Olympics South Carolina.  It’s a cool reason for people with warm hearts to support these special athletes.  This year organizers are hopeful they took in more than $50,000 this year, topping last year’s $47,000.


Smart Tips For Cleaning Your Home’s Light Fixtures

It’s that time of year!!  Along with dieting, exercising and taking down holiday decorations, everyone likes to start off the new year with a clean slate.  What better way to clean that slate, than helpful tips for cleaning your home’s light fixtures. 

Avoid the harsh cleaners
Resist the urge to use brass or other abrasive cleaners as they could mar the finish that keeps the fixture looking its best. 

Clean your Light Bulbs
Dust, aerosol sprays and airborne cooking oils dim both your home’s ambiance and your fixture’s ability to put out all the wattage you are paying for.  To clean a light bulb, wait until the light bulb is cool and wipe it down with a lint free cloth.  A good rule of thumb is to clean the light bulb or fixture at least once a month.
