APtravelnews-Oct. 11th, Fontana Lake Resort, N.C.–For the first time Click-It Hot Use It Cold attended an Outdoor Writers Conference. Company personnel President, Dennis McAlister, Rick Voight from the Simplicity Group and yours truly Bob and Barb introduced this new supporting member to the hundreds gathered at the Break-Out-Day show and tell, where they got the chance to meet outdoor writers from all over the Southern States and demonstrate and explain all about their excellent Click-It Hot–Use it Cold heating and cooling pads.
The big question asked by all writers and other media groups such as TV and Radio, Blog Posters and other companies representatives was: “can you use it again and again-are the units reusable after the first initial use to heat up to 130 degrees in 5-seconds, stay hot for those cold days and cool for the hot ones.” The answer: a resounding yes, yes and yes! Barb and I love this product and we are so enamored of its simplicity and usefulness for all the outdoor pursuits, but also as a medical saver device too! Arthritis need it hot, a wound that swells, use it cold. For additional information go: www.ClickitHot.com
