Costco coupons?

I do have a card..but don't go there a whole lot.

Do they have coupon flyers at the store? Or..you have to have one of them through the mail?

Anyone with a 'Costco Coupon Primer'?

Costco

Usually they hand it to you as you enter.

I get them in the mail. It seems to vary from store to store, but they'll generally hand them out at the member service desk if you ask. Some stores seem to just automatically apply them even if you don't have one, or if you have any coupon from the pack, they'll apply them for everything in the coupon book.

I'd like to try this on some hubs but don't want to have to unlace them so I can soak them in a tub. I wonder what you could mix the pine-sol with to make it like a gel? That way I could spray/brush it on the hubs and it wouldn't dry up in 30 minutes. Make sense?

You might try the baking soda media blast for those.

Corn starch sounds like a darn good, simple and logical idea---worth a shot!

Has anyone tried the cheep pinesol like the Zep brand that they carry at Home Depot? It seems to be cheaper ($6 a gallon vs $9 a gallon)

Might break the cornstarch down now that i think about it, but it's worth a shot.

I cant think of any gelling agents that arent supposed to be for food at the moment... Maybe i'm just hungry

Just be careful with oven cleaner around aluminum. Oven cleaner contains lye (sodium hydroxide), which eats aluminum.

Anything rubber or vinyl coated will be fine, and it’ll keep the squirrels from chewing through your fuel lines too.

Many years ago as a mechanic on a heli-portable seismic crew, I would help the boys lay out hundreds of meters of electronic cabling, of which was connected to IO boxes and geophones, and some of which would invariably be left in place overnight.
Come day light there would always be some sections of cable that required removal and replacement, as the deer, rabbits, squirrels and anything else with teeth would take a fancy to the coating on the cabling and chew up meters and meters of the stuff.
Until we discovered the magic of Pine-Sol.
Whenever we experienced ‘nibblers’ on a job, I would go into the nearest town and buy the stuff by the case, bring it back out to the equipment staging area and dump a half a gallon on each chute load of equipment that the choppers would lift out to the line.
No more chewed cables.
And it kept the bears out of the garbage too.

There is one drawback though.
Each morning, as the helicopter flew you down to the end of line, even at 200 feet above the tress, the whole mountain side smelled faintly like a hospital.

Do we know how the Pine Sol works in the small passages inside the carb?
