    Default Santa needs some

    I figured this was the best way to get everyone to read this post(Sorry)...

    I went to put up all of the inflatable displays and Santa's fan works ok, but he won't stand up. The best I can figure is I washed him last spring when I put him away, I wonder if he was treated with something to restrict the air flow?

    I was wondering if I could spray him with something like flour and water to plug up some of the small holes to help restrict the air loss????

    Thanks for reading and answering this post.

    Try spraying sizing on it (no pun intended!).

    Wally World sells seem sealer for tents in the camping department. I have found that the seems seperate and cause the greatest loss of air..

    If that doesn't work out - I have a santa with a dead fan - seams seem good. I could remove the fan and ship pretty easily.

    thanks guys, I'll try the sizing in the morning and if that doesn't work I'll move up to the tent sealer and use Franks Santa as a last resort.

    if non of that works and you plan on washing it again ...try putting a oil base spray on it (KN filter oil ) what this will do is allow air to flow but restrict the amount of flow ...water proof'ers like scotch guard will help too. Just keep in mind that the fans aren't strong and are not build for a lot of restriction so if you seal it too good chances are you will over work the fan and burn it up. also check for leaks ( sometimes the simplistic things escape our complex minds)
