WHAT’S ON YOUR HANDS?

Posted by on

I recently read an article that states that soap can annihilate the coronavirus along with 1 in 5 respiratory infections from your hands. Good news! The article explains: Viruses surrounded by fat-based envelopes move around in water-based liquids.  Soap reacts and destroys that envelope of water and fat.  Soap grabs more and more pieces of the fat-based envelope and pops the coronavirus’ protective balloon. Water washes the remains down the drain.  The article also mentions that any kind of soap works great even antibacterial. Hand sanitizer is a good substitute for soap and water but with 60% alcohol. The article...

Jeans made with less water… and Waterfree Urinals?

Posted by on

Recently, I was reading the inside of my new pair of jeans (Sad, isn’t it? Homebound…thanks to COVID-19) and noticed the washing instructions read “Care for our Planet”…wash less, wash cold, line dry, donate or recycle.  I was intrigued and wanting to get my money’s worth…I investigated. They are also definitely made with less water…great! If you can produce jeans and wash them with very little water, by the same token…It would seem to be a great water savings boost to purchase and use Sloan Waterfree Urinals and WES-150 cartridges.  Waterfree urinals are a great way to save water up...

What's a SPIFF have to do with plumbing and cleaning products?

Posted by on

Being in sales in a past life…I was, of course, motivated to make money. One of the ways was a spiff program. I got to thinking, whatever happened to them? I found out they are “alive and well” in many major plumbing supply companies.  Let’s start from the beginning. A spiff is a cash program, prize, or additional commission for pushing or increasing sales of a particular item of merchandise. It’s been proven that spiffs increase sales. In times like these when you can’t make one-on-one sales calls, spiffs provide that little extra stimulus.  Not only does a spiff increase...

Cleaning and disinfecting in 1918…a formaldehyde fumigator?

Posted by on

In the mid-1900s, during the Spanish Flu pandemic, and automobile factory  was one of the cleanest in the world. Every 24 hours items that were touched were sterilized, even coat racks were disinfected. Rubbish was cleaned 12 times a day and thousands of janitors did nothing else but clean. Sound familiar? It has been said history repeats itself … similar to today’s COVID-19 cleaning practices? Luckily, we have the help in the form of modern cleaning supplies and disinfectants that they could not have had like modern antibacterial soap, non-touch urinals and cartridges and new disinfectants. One lesson learned is...
