Dear Candi Dishers,

The Candi Dish blog launched 2 years ago today!

At the time, my life was quite different than it is now:  I was psyched to be putting this blog in motion but was also very focused on bringing my vision for my product invention to life. It was a busy time of “my” firsts: creating my first Limited Liability Company (LLC); creating my first blog: The Candi Dish and of course, creating a consumer product from scratch for the very first time! I am very proud of that product and would be honored for you to learn about RestoPresto® on the product website and online store: www.restopresto.com. What started as a sketch has flourished into a very real, incredible convenience item. RestoPresto® converts from a small pouch to a versatile extra layer that you can sit on, sit under & wear. It is water-repellent, durable, UPF 50+ and with snaps, drawstrings and loops, can be used TONS of ways to make your busy life easier. Planned events, spontaneous outings during all seasons for all ages….RestoPresto® = multifunctional value on the go! Manufactured in the USA; patents pending and we are stocking up for the holidays so gift giving will be a snap!

The Candi Dish blog was my first foray in putting “it” out there into the vast world wide web and I look forward to dishing more stories, snapshots and suggestions – thank you for being a fan!

Have a sweet day!




What in the world is a RestoPresto®???

One of my biggest challenges as an inventor is figuring out how to explain all of the features and uses of RestoPresto®! It is a great challenge to have and quite exciting when customers are constantly sharing how RestoPresto® makes their lives easier!

For those of you who follow The Candi Dish but do not know about RestoPresto® the 3-in-1 portable, compact, water-repellent, UPF 50+ mat that you can sit on, sit under & wear, please check out www.restopresto.com and read below (check out the video, too)!

How does RestoPresto® work?

Well, it is carefully designed to be a multi-functional & easily transportable mat that makes busy people’s lives easier. When in its pouch RestoPresto® fits in your hand, when open it is the size of a beach towel and it weighs under 8 ounces. Made of a special fabric that is water-repellent, UPF 50+, soft and durable both kids and adults enjoy how it feels against the skin and how well it functions. Snaps, drawstrings and loops provide the user with endless configurations so you can literally use it to sit on (picnic, beach, concrete, public floor), sit under (when you need an extra layer) and wear (chilly indoors or out; to get you from Point A to Point B in the rain or snow). It is a product for all seasons, all ages and is unisex!

The RestoPresto® business is proudly run by me as a small, woman-owned Company that took the road less taken by designing, assembling and manufactured my unique product in the USA. Red & gray mats are currently in stock & can be purchased on www.restopresto.com!  Each RestoPresto® comes with 1 branded carabiner, 1 set of 4 branded mini-stakes & 1 instructional brochure.
