Hey BRD on a sidenote, do you make rubbings of the headstones?

I know if some stranger rubs my headstone...  I wouldn't be too happy.

This stuff sounds almost too good to be true...

no work involved...

just spray it on and leave...

let it work over time.  I'm guessing if it actually works it will probably take a few applications to get the best results.

This product seems promising...

wonder if I can find any this side of Texas?

Clean a headstone with sparks


This is the product mentioned in the video above and so far it looks like it has to be ordered from the company in Texas!
