• How do I prevent water rings in my toilet bowl?

    Back the water out of the toilet. Dry the bowl, then apply some Advantage to the bowl. The polymers in Advantage that do such a wonderful job protecting and shining your vehicles leave a slick coating on surfaces including toilets and showers. When the surface is slick - nothing sticks! Oh is toilet cleaning a breeze!

  • Cabinet cleaning: I know I should not have let my cabinets go for so long. They have white marks that looks like water splotches. What can I do other than sand and refinish them?

    Clean and deep condition bathroom cabinets twice a year to prevent the steam or water spots from drying the wood which causes the cracking and peeling. Our one step Wood Care Cleaner and Conditioner keeps them in top conditioned if applied three to four times a year depending on bathroom usage.

Dab some Wood Care onto the water spots and rub in. Allow that to set several hours then wipe to remove any excess Wood Care. It may take 24 hours for the rest to absorb into the wood. It may take a treatment or two but the spots will disappear. Then treat the rest of the cabinet.

If the wood has begun to crack, Wood Care will not restore the wood. In that case you need to sand and refinish them.

  • Training little boys. My little boy is just now learning how to go like the "big boys go." Unfortunately his aim is not so good and the area around the toilet is beginning to smell. What can I do to get rid of the odor?

    First of all, this is a difficult area to treat. The urine has probably penetrated into the sub-layers of the flooring and may be hard to remove.

    Head to the pet store for a bottle of Nature's Miracle. Pour some on the area letting it penetrate to the sub floor. Nature's Miracle is made from enzymes that "eat" and dissolve the bacteria that cause odors. If this does not solve the problem, try some straight distilled food grade white vinegar.

Here is a little trick I did with my son when he wanted to be like the big boys. Lay a piece of toilet paper flat on top of the water in the toilet. My son loved ‘shooting’ down the paper and he hardly missed the toilet after that.

  • We have soap scum that has started to build on our shower walls. How can I remove it without spending hours scrubbing?

            Bring straight food grade distilled white vinegar to a boil. Mix our concentrated CleanEz 1 part CleanEz to 10 parts water then add 1/3 cup boiling vinegar. Wipe on the walls and wait 5 minutes. Repeat this 3 or 4 times. Dampen our White Scrubbie Pad with the vinegar and CleanEz solution pour on a bit of baking soda and scrub. If the soap scum is not coming off easily apply the CleanEz solution again.
