A Shortage of Something Other Than Expected

Here it is.  The scourge of sustainability professionals the world over. For the past 25 years we have managed to create products that have recycled content that continually improves. A small roll toilet tissue that is 100% recycled content. And better yet, it is reasonably soft too! Paper towels with minimum 60% post-consumer recycled content. […]

Another Really Cool Product!

Big Blue is my favorite product by a landslide. It does more than the label says it will and it does it with a smile. OK let’s be fair. Cleaning products can’t smile. But the users that who work with them can! We’ve always been focused on user friendly products. Big Blue has an innate […]

Single Use Plastics

What is your take?  Mine is simple.  If you can’t recycle it or it doesn’t biodegrade in some way shape or form.  It is a single use item.  Our world has gotten better every day with improvements in biodegradability, packaging manufacturing and chemical safety.  I have decided a long time ago that it would be […]

What’s up Buttercup?

Tell us what you need! Have you ever asked a store for something and gotten it without any push back?  Recently I watched something change that I had thought couldn’t possible.  I must preface this statement with a warning.  That aside I thought I would tell you about something that happened to me.  While I […]

What makes a scrubber good?  What makes a scrubber great?

If you have ever used an automatic scrubber, I am certain you know what makes you happy or annoyed with a scrubber.  But have you ever considered all of the ancillary areas that offer you best in class results and long term sustainability of those results?  For every scrubber we sell there is always a […]

My Quest for a New Name

Wanted: A new name for our remodeled environmentally preferred degreaser.  We had Envirosolve. Which we still do. We had Purple J and Pink Lady. Which we no longer do. For mostly obvious reasons I decided that references to alcohol-based beverages no longer make sense. Yes, I did play a bit on words with Cling On […]

Simple and Smart Polishing Stainless

Less is more.  For 25 plus years we have certainly gotten used to it.  The chemical salesman keeps shooting himself in the foot!  I used to love to watch our truck leave here loaded with drums of juice!  As we call it (Industry jargon) cleaning products.  Now they leave with itty bitty boxes containing enough […]

Over the 28 years I have been in this industry, I have come to realize that it is an industry in a constant state of change. For me change is my whole mantra. I am a sales professional, so I continue to adapt myself and to push forward these changes to my clients. Some changes […]

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 […]

Proxi Rocks

Ted said it.  Ted proved it!  As he always does.  Ted is the Donn at Corporate Facility Supply.  He likes it that way.  I could ramble for hours about Proxi.  But I already have.  Below is a link to my recent Blog.  But for full effect watch this video as well.  No way no how, […]
