Which tire blackener to choose: purchased or homemade

To give old tires their original look, you can use a special ink. The agent is applied to a car tire, often immediately after washing, and gives a glossy or matte sheen to the wheel.

There are dozens of different brands of products on the market now, but some car enthusiasts make do-it-yourself ink. We will tell you about the composition, manufacturers and prices for such care products.

Goodyear GY

Goodyear GY000700 Ink is sold as a 400 ml aerosol. According to the manufacturer, this product not only gives the tires shine, but also protects against dirt and reagents.

For an ordinary car, a can is enough for several applications. The price is about 250 rubles.

Autoland BLAG

The 5 liter Autoland BLAG canister is often used in car washes that use it for their customers after washing.

The cost of such a canister is about 3000 rubles. If there is a garage or utility room where to store the ink, you can also purchase it for personal use. Enough for a long time.

Grass Black Brilliance

Another popular Grass Black Brilliance is a silicone-based tire polish in the form of a spray. It is produced in small containers of 250 ml, so it will not take up much space in the trunk (there are other volumes). Ingredients: organic solvent, polydimethylsiloxane, perfume. The cost does not exceed analogs - about 200 rubles.

Happy First Spring Day and Cats Festival

There are cat lovers among the employees of our library. But the felines themselves do not live within the walls of our library. True, according to the stories of old-timers in the library, examples of cats living in the book depository are known. On Cats Day, which is celebrated on March 1, I decided to make a review of books about library cats.

Cat Dewey from the small American town of Spencer in Iowa became famous throughout the world. He was glorified by the director of the city library, Vicky Myron, who sheltered a cat, nicknamed Dewey in honor of the famous American library scientist, the author of tables of library and bibliographic classification.

For many years, Dewey became the guardian angel of the library: in the morning he met visitors at the glass front doors, gave everyone a warm welcome, allowed himself to be stroked, and a little later he chose some nice reader to doze off with him on your hands or climb into his bag. He attended all public meetings in the library.
