Commercial Bathroom Supplies

There’s a relatively new show on the Disney Channel called “Stuck in the Middle”.  You might be wondering why a grown woman is familiar with the line up on the Disney Channel – well, I have a 9 year old.  Translation:  I don’t get to watch many ‘grown up’ shows these days.

It’s actually a pretty cute show based on a family with 7 children; you can imagine the chaos that fills that house.  Recently I watched a repeat episode with Gray about Mother’s Day.  Each child had their own idea of what would make a great Mother’s Day gift – and my favorite one of the mix was the homemade automatic toilet paper re-stocker.  I actually thought it was a clever idea.  I can only imagine how often the name “Mom!” would be hollered from the bathroom of a home with 7 children followed by these words, “We’re out of toilet paper.”  A mother of 7 has a long list of things to keep up with; checking toilet paper re-stocker off the list would be a huge help.

Business owners, managers, and employees also have a long list of things to keep up with; that’s where A Cleaner World’s Commercial Services Division comes in.  Our Commercial Services Division stocks, delivers, and installs all the bathroom supplies your Greensboro, High Point, or Winston-Salem business needs to keep your restrooms clean and well supplied.  Here’s a list:
  • Toilet paper dispensers and toilet paper
  • Paper towel dispensers and paper towel – there are 4 versions of paper towels with associated dispensers
  • Soap dispensers – there are also 4 versions of this product
  • Hand soap, anti-bacterial soap, moisturizing soap, and heavy de-greasing soap
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers and hand sanitizer
  • Air fresheners
  • Toilet seat covers with dispenser
  • Toilet seat sanitizer with dispenser, which is typically mounted with the toilet paper dispenser
  • Toilet bowl and urinal bowl sanitizers
  • High absorbent carpet drip mats that fit around toilets, urinals, and sinks – these carpet floor mat rentals are similar to our carpeted entryway mats
  • Disposable drip mats that fit around toilets, urinals, and sinks – these may be purchased and placed for up to 1 month before needing to be replaced
  • Trash can liners for bathroom trash cans
  • Commercial mop, handle, and bucket rentals for keeping floors clean and dry
Besides delivering and changing out all the supplies your business might need at whatever interval you request – weekly, biweekly, or monthly – we will gladly fill any empty dispensers and holders while we are there.

Removing Ice Cream Stains

July is National Ice Cream Month.  Bless you Ronald Reagan.   The thing about ice cream is – when you have a 9 year old boy – it always ends up being spilled on something, and that something is usually what he is wearing.  You would think that ice cream would be an easy stain to remove and for the most part that’s true, but ice cream is a protein-based stain, and they can sometimes be contrary.  The key with this type of stain removal is to address it as soon as possible and to avoid using really hot water.  Here are some tips for removing an ice cream stain from clothing:
  • If you spill a big blob on yourself, use a blunt knife, spoon, or white paper towel to remove the excess.
  • Wash as soon as possible after the big spill, but check the care label to be certain the item can be washed.  If it is silk, wool, or a delicate fabric, you might want to consider leaving it to a professional.
  • If the item is safe to wash, rinse the area with cold water, running the water through the back of the fabric.
  • Treat the area with either a liquid laundry detergent that contains enzymes or a color-safe bleach.  Allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Launder according to the care label’s directions, but avoid using hot water.
  • Check the garment to make sure the stain has been removed before placing it in the dryer.  If in doubt, let it air dry and then check. 
  • If it remains, try repeating the process.  If it has been removed, dry and press according to the care label’s directions.
Just a few reminders:
  • Never place a garment with a stain in the dryer.  Doing so will cause the stain to set, making it virtually impossible to remove.
  • Know when to say when; making too many attempts could cause color loss.
If you decide to give ice cream removal a shot and are unsuccessful or if you’d rather leave it to a professional, our trained staff will be glad to tackle it for you.  Just drop it off at any one of our locations, and we will gladly take care of it for you.

Old Glory with Pride

Did you know that a 17 year old high school student designed the American Flag of today?  According to a number of sites, Robert G. Heft created the 50 star flag as part of a history project.  After receiving a B- for his work, he submitted the flag to Congress for consideration.  When President Eisenhower set up a committee to design a new flag, Heft’s congressman passed the flag to the committee, who then passed it on to the president.  On a side note, Heft and his teacher had an understanding that if his flag was selected, his grade would be changed to an A.  Sure enough, he ended up getting an A.  That’s because in August of 1959, President Eisenhower called Heft to say that his flag had been chosen.  In fact, this flag, on July 4, 2007, became the longest serving American Flag.

Here’s another interesting piece of information – outdoor American Flags that are washed or dry cleaned regularly will both last longer and maintain their vivid colors longer than those that are not properly cared for.  That’s because dirt and air pollution can both make the colors dull and cause damage to the fibers.  If you choose to clean your flag at home, wash it with a mild soap on the gentle cycle and remove it from the washing machine promptly to avoid having the colors run.  Never place your flag in the dryer; instead, lay it out flat and allow it to air dry.

But I have an even better suggestion than washing it yourself – bring it to A Cleaner World.  We clean American Flags free of charge – every day.
