Winter Coats of Plasti Dip

Dec 09, 2014

Winterization. When most people hear the word, they think about vehicles. And Plasti Dip is good for that in a number of ways. We’ll get to that. But it’s also a good idea to winterize many common, household items. Here are ways in which Plasti Dip can protect your belongings from Old Man Winter’s often destructive touch.

Among Plasti Dip’s many lauded characteristics is its waterproofing ability. Consider dipping your outdoor cords to seal the connections to further protect them from the elements. It can also increase their visibility, which is a plus if they lay where people may walk, shovel or gleefully frolic. On the contrary, you can dip them to blend in with the color of your house, the snow, or your holiday lights.

Plasti Dip is also non-slip. (Remember, it’s the original peelable, flexible, insulating, non-slip, durable rubber coating!) So if you Plasti Dip the ends of your ladder, it won’t scratch the paint on your house or gutters. Plus, it can increase stability.

If you have a severe dislike of winter, it can be challenging to get a grip. Fortunately, by dipping your shovel handles you can improve your grip while giving snow and ice the old heave-ho.

Here’s another one — we’ve heard of Dipheads spraying Plasti Dip’s clear finish on the front section of their vehicles, headlights and taillights or their rocker panels to help guard against debris that could damage their ride. And don’t forget that by giving your rims a nice dipping, you’ll winterize ‘em good against dirt, salt and snow — and every unholy mixture of those that winter loves to toss around. Because whether you love winter, or loathe it, nobody likes rust. Then when the snow starts to melt away you can peel Plasti Dip right off!
