mink oil. small jar only cost's about 5-8 dollars depending on where you find it. i bought my last jar at a Blue Seal. they make other oils but i was recommended this particular kind by a few others and was not disappointed. Caution: allow time to set before using after initial application. the material needs time to soak it in.
depending on how often you wear the boots the small jar should last you a good while.

It could be stuck from dirt or rust. Remove the but cap and check the inside for debris/rust and also the tension spring to be sure it's not too tight. If you get it open again, clean it and keep a light oil on the baton, like WD-40.

Just like any other business opportunity, it is up to you to do the research. You should be watch out for places that want you to send money. Also, a thorough Google search about any potential work is a good idea. ALWAYS check with the Better Business Beaurau! They are always on watch for scammers out there. I hope you find what you're looking for. Good luck!!!

Yes you can definitely get high visibility clothing for your kids. It's really dangerous cycling at night.
check out the vests at halfords that are bright yellow;

Wikipedia says: High-visibility clothing, a type of personal protective equipment (PPE), is any clothing worn that has highly reflective properties or a colour that is easily discernible from any background. Yellow waistcoats worn by emergency services are a common example.

A simple mixture of 3 ingredients will make any and all of your clothing into flame retardants

I used to be afraid that one day my house would catch on fire and that my children's clothing wouldn't be fire resistant and how unsafe that would be. I spent time online doing research and found a very simple and easy to follow recipe for a flame retardant that can be applied to clothing.

What you have to do is wash your clothes like you do normally and rinse as normally. Using a bucket mix 1 gallon of water with 9 ounces of Mule Team Borax and 4 ounces of boric acid (adjust amounts according to the ratio 1:9:4). Soak the clothing in this mixture, squeeze out the excess liquid and dry normally.

When ever you wash the clothing you should reapply the flame retardant because it washes out in the laundry.

If you want to make clothing that cannot be soaked fire retardant then what you can do is pour the mixture into a spray bottle and spray a light layer on to the clothing. Allow it to dry and just like regular clothing after washing reapply the mixture to ensure its still fire retardant.

Please also note that this does not make your clothes fire repellent, this will make them less likely to catch fire in the case of a fire.

Its not recommended to clean your own hazardous material mess, but when it comes to things that are just really gross this site has a really good and amusing guide to make your own makeshift hazmat suit at home for the small messes like cleaning vomit or throwing out a dead mouse.

If you are able to unscrew the back of your watch you will see the battery holder and battery, this will show the type. If you are not able to do so, most watch shops are quite happy to do it for you, mostly for free, you just pay for the battery. Have Fun
