Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Redo 

This Summer we heard about the possibility of abolishing single use plastics.  Well duh!  Isn’t it about time?  For 30 some years we have responsibly recycled and reused like we should. It took the picture of unfortunate wildlife suffering at the hands of plastic straw manufacturers and the consumers who love straws made from plastic.  […]

What Makes A Good Floor Cleaner?

The answer to this one is….   Drum roll please.  A good cleaner.  In more than just one way, too! The person doing the cleaning is every bit as important as the product we use to clean.  My focus here is actually on the product.  Surprise.  Many floors require a cleaner that suits their special needs.  […]

Vacuums

How do vacuums work?  Well that’s a tough one to answer without a bunch of jabber.  If you understand how an impeller pump works, then you’ll easily get how a vacuum works.  Vacuums just spin a whole lot faster (15- 22,000 RPM) and maintain air vacuum rather than liquid vacuum.  Give me 20 seconds I’ll […]

Ask me a Question

Every 7 to 10 months I field an online question.  That’s it.  Unfortunate that such an underused resource availed, and people don’t take advantage of it.  I know my stuff.  I’m not even patting myself on the back honest.  People find out all the time.  We recently remodeled our website to enable easier navigation.  If […]

Square floor pads

It kind of makes sense doesn’t it? Most rooms are square and most surfaces are flat where we use scrubbers. Then why not? I, like many industry veterans, started off without automatic scrubbers in most locations. Nowadays almost every building with 5000 or more square feet of floor have an automatic floor scrubber. Makes sense […]

We all need a little love. Well all of us apart from microbes. Bacteria and viruses are the reason we live shorter lives, experience inconvenience through illness and experience general discomfort.

Sink & Shower

The neatest product we have by far is Sink and Shower. Sort of. It is at least in the top ten. How can a non-acid bathroom cleaner give results as good as or better than the strongest of toilet bowl cleaners? It just does. Ready for an explanation? Maybe not but maybe you will learn […]

Vinegar is for…

Yup here we are talking about the biggest misnomer in cleaning. “Is vinegar good for cleaning?” Without a doubt the answer is no.
