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 […]

Cha Cha Changes

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, […]

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 […]

GHS Where are we now?

It came and went without so much as a blip on the radar. We all complied to get customers what they needed quickly. More importantly some of the challenges that the original world of WHMIS gave us were definitely subdued in WHMIS 2015. SDS sheets are no longer MSDS sheets and they don’t need to […]

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 […]

Stealth Machines

This morning I read a great article about how amazing the new F35 fighter jet is. As much as I dislike a world without peace, I find it amazing how wonderful technology is. The Stealth like fighter jet can go undetected for miles. Until of course it is far too late to react. The Stealth […]

Contact Time- Using Disinfectant

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. They are not our friends in most cases. The invasive ones at least. I kinda fibbed there but it is all for the right […]
