And then you can bake a cake with the leftovers!

Shari--I bought "Glass Wax" from The Vermont Country Store, and I believe that they still carry it. Thanks for the tip!! Gail

Instead of Glass Wax

To Shari,

The replacement for Glass Wax is call No Streak. I have been using GW for over 50 years (I am really old) and this stuff beats it hands down. No dust to speak of and glass that truly shines. I never thought of it for my Airstream, but tomorrow we'll see.

You can get No Streak at Ace Hardware.

First off, I have no idea what that picture is replacing the picture that I took and I posted a link to of an Airstream cake I baked for the RMVAC Rally that's posted on a website that I built - it's NOT stolen from anywhere!

Whatever ~ here it is again!

No. What I use is called "Glass Wax" and it came in a square tin can.


The "Window Wax" is supposed to be the reformulated version...but I haven't tried it.

Same thing with the "No Streak" - I haven't tried it. I think they are both more "environmentally friendly" versions of the old-time Glass Wax ~

I guess the program you used to build the "other" website is very protective of your work product.

You're lucky you haven't sued yourself for copyright infringement. Yet.

Are we sliding off into the realm of half-baked ideas-can you have your cake and polish with it too?

FYI Glasswax can be found at the Vermont Country Store in Weston Vermont. You can order it from their website of the same name.

Regards,

Is there a problem with flour use after you use "S" grade Nuvite? Will the flour remove any of the wax coating?
