"Cleaning before storage is a must to keep furs fresh and supple for the next season.
Glazing is a process of bringing out the natural luster and sheen of a fur after it has been cleaned. It involves a steaming and ironing
process that will vary with each type of fur. Glazing will restore the life, luster and beauty of your garment. Fur cleaning is performed
by hand using a fine powder, which consists of a mixture of ground walnut shells and corncobs. This powder has a very mild cleaning agent
added to it and is delicately rubbed into the fur. The powder removes dirt and excess oil from the coat. This process is the safest and most
efficient way of cleaning your fur."

P&G to harness power of peanuts, pecans and scrap wood to make Charmin, Bounty (article)
Steam to run one of Procter & Gamble's largest paper manufacturing plants will soon be created by using peanut and pecan shells,
treetops and mill waste such as sawdust.
I first heard about this from Jennifer B from Food Allergy Buzz read her blog article Food Allergens in Paper Towel?
"Walnut Shells are made from vegetable shell raw material. They were originally developed for cleaning gasoline and diesel engines.
Its lack of grit allows it to clean metals, alloys and plastics without scratching or pitting the surface. Walnut Shells can be used to
clean brass, clean jewelry, clean coins, remove paint, lacquer, rust, scale, carbon and chemical deposits, and can be used for the
deflashing of molded plastic parts."
Clean Your Boat with Walnut Grit
Walnut shell Grit
Walnut shell Gritis the hard fibrous product made from ground or crushed walnut shells. When used as a blasting media, walnut shell grit is
extremely durable, angular and multi-faceted, yet is considered a 'soft abrasive'. Walnut shell blasting grit is an excellent replacement
for sand (free silica) to avoid inhalation health concerns.
Walnut Shells used to clean
"Walnut shell abrasive is used to clean and polish soft metals, fibreglass, wood, plastics and stone. Walnut shell also works as a
deburring and deflashing product for mouldings, castings and electrical parts."

Agra Grit Walnut Shell Sandblasting Medium Grit (10 lb. per Box)
"Walnut Shells can be used to clean metals, alloys and plastics without scratching or pitting the surface. Blasting with Walnut Shells can
eliminate hand scraping, brushing or grinding. Walnut Shells are most often used to deflash plastic parts. They can also be used to deburrmetal parts,
clean molds and polish metal surfaces."
"Walnut Shell Abrasives were originally developed and are still used for cleaning gasoline and diesel engines. It’s toughness and lack of silicon
or other grit allows it to clean metals, alloys and plastics without scratching or pitting the surface. Walnut Shell Abrasives re carefully manufactured
to eliminate any possible metals or mineral contamination which could damage fine finishes."

"Composition Materials Co. Inc. has been a leading supplier of crushed Walnut Shell grit products. Composition
Materials pioneered Walnut Shell Blasting with the US Navy in the 1960s. With the introduction of Walnut Shell Blasting, aircraft carriers &
submarines were stripped of only their top coating, leaving the expensive undercoats intact."

"Walnut Soft Abrasive Grit
It is a fact that in addition to a soft grit material being strong, that is, resisting rupture, the material must also have a high modulus of elasticity,
that is, it should resist deformation. The durability and quality characteristics of a walnut shell is proven by its ability to stand up and perform
and is further emphasized in the following chart showing various materials and their modulus of elasticity in pounds per square inch."
Walnut Shell Cleaning Cars
Walnut Shell Intake Valve Cleaning for BMW
"Cleaning carbon build-up inside an engine can be a very costly and laborious routine. But thankfully BMW has devised special equipment
to allow for intake port cleaning with the engine assembled and in the car. The procedure uses walnut shells ground to between
.45 and .80mm or SAE20/30. Walnut blasting is just like sand blasting but uses walnut shells which as organic soft abrasives will not damage the intake valve,
valve guide, or intake port. This same process is used to clean aircraft engines, delicate electrical circuit boards, and has been around since the late 1800's.

Peanut Shells Used Hydrogen Fuel
Peanut shells used for hydrogen fuel

Soil Conservation Research Laboratory in Morris, Minn., has teamed up with an inventor of a patent-pending process to turn agricultural
biomass — wastes like peanut shells — into hydrogen fuel and charcoal fertilizer.

Fuel Boiler Burns Almond Shells
Grow your Own Fuel in Spain
"By using an innovative solid fuel boiler which burns the almond shells from the clients own 20,000m2 plot, heating
costs in the short Spanish winter are drastically reduced. The system that Casas de Lorca are implementing is as practical
to use as oil-fired central heating and is completely automatic and can use biofuel pellets as well as almond shells."
"Biomass is biological material obtained from living or recently living organisms that can be processed into electricity, fuel and heat. Biomass
has been used for thousands of years and there are many forms available which are used in a number of ways. For example, in a wood fire the wood
that is burning is a biomass fuel. Biomass is also used in building materials, composting and as in Drax’s case in the electricity industry.
The materials that Drax use include sustainable wood-based products, forestry residues and residual agricultural products, such as sunflower
seed husks and peanut husks"
Gasifying walnut shells for heat and electricity in California (article)
In the past, most of the walnut shell was sold to a nearby large commercial biomass plant.
Now, the shell is converted to electricity and heat onsite.
Totally Nuts: This Farm Runs on Walnut Shells (article)
For the record, walnut shells are, in fact, producing power at Dixon Ridge. Lots of it. Using a machine that converts organic waste into natural syngas, Lester has saved upwards of $75,000 a year in energy costs. And with the installation of two new BioMax 100 converters, he anticipates up to $250,000 in annual savings. That’s no joke.
Macadamia Power Plant
"Regionally based Suncoast Gold Macadamias (SGM) processing site produces about 5000 tonnes of waste macadamia nut shells each year. The shells
previously were sent to landfill, garden mulch or burned to produce heat. The plant will now utilise the shells as fuel for cogeneration, thereby
increasing the energy efficiency of the site."

"Ornamental Peanut is an attractive, low-maintenance groundcover, that blooms bright yellow flowers from spring to first frost. This drought-tolerant,

ground cover of choice!"

Deer Proof Electric Fence (article)
There are two ways to improve the effectiveness of an electrified fence. Combining the fence with attractants or lures encourages deer to touch the fence with their noses or mouths, enhancing the aversive conditioning. One tactic is to attach aluminum flags to an electrified wire, and to coat the flags with peanut butter. Another approach is to use electrified ribbon, known as polytape, and to treat the entire length with a peanut butter and oil mixture. Deer are more likely to see the high-visibility polytape tape at night, reducing the chance that they will walk into a wire and break it.
Oh Deer..Not My Garden (article)
Electric Fencing – A notch up from regular fencing since it adds an electrical shock, has the same general advantages and disadvantages. (Strange, but true fact about electric fencing: people smear peanut butter on aluminum foil attached to the fence. The peanut butter is a powerful lure and once the deer’s nose makes contact it won’t want to repeat the experience.)
Go Away Deer (article)
Since deer are creatures of habit, the sooner you can deter their foraging, the better. Baiting an electric fence with peanut butter can train deer to stay out of an area. Tree guards that wrap around the trunks are a must in winter, and I encircle young fruit trees with fencing for the first few years so deer can't reach the branches. Covering shrubs in early spring with fabric row covers can deter feeding long enough for wild food plants to become available.
Deer Repellent (article)
Electric Deer Repellents shock the deer on the nose and teach them to stay away.
An ordinary electric fence will work very well if the deer touches it but unless the fence is very tall the deer will jump over it without touching the wires.
So to get the deer to touch the wires before they jump over, the wires can be baited. A baited electric fence is also known as a peanut butter fence because peanut butter is often used as bait.
