A few month ago I talked to you about the product called Herby's Fame. I had forgotten about it, until my friend Carl Wiglesworth raved about how well it worked in his car. He was renting a car to take to New Mexico and the floor and seats were stained. He was desperate – he found a bottle at the top of the laundry room shelf...and it got all the stains out. He even took it back to the rental company to show them. They couldn't believe it. They had tried everything. And that's how the Herby's Fame got back on our shelves. The other day in the store a customer asked me if Herby's Fame would remove fingernail polish from carpet. I really hesitated because fingernail polish is paint. I asked him to try it and if it didn't remove it he could bring it back, or if it did...would he please call me. Guess what, he didn't bring it back...he called me and was so happy that the polish came out of the rug. I told him that I would put it in the next book, The Best Of Johnnie Chuoke, Vol 11! And you can put it in your current book because I gave you some blank pages in the back. Herby's Fame is great for taking pet stains out and along with the Bio Zapp which takes out the odor, completely. So if you have some stains in carpet, in the car or the house...now you know what to do!
Now to the email....
Question: What will take the water spots off my faucet? And I have a glass shower door, and it's is heavily stained with hard water. My door is new and I don't want to harm the metal finish on the handles, and frame. Is there something safe to use that will really work? Love your articles!
Answer: The best product is called Bring It On. It's great to use on fiberglass tubs, and your faucets. It will be safe to use on the shower door. Bring It On can not be used on marble, plastic because Bring It On is a mild abrasive and it might etch the marble or plastic. But for glass, metals, and fiberglass it's perfect. One of our employees was going to trash a bathtub he had because they couldn't out the stains. He was so pleased with the results, and the tub stayed.
Question: I know you wrote about it but I can't find the article. There is a lock you talked about that doesn't need a key, and it was like having a dead bolt lock. I like that idea! But I can't remember the name of the lock. Tell me ...do you still have them?
Answer: The lock is called The Door Guardian. And you are right, you don't have to use a key to bolt the door closed. So in case of a emergency, you are not searching for a key. And it's nice because you don't have to mortise it into the frame. You can put it high enough on the door so that little hands can't get to it and go out the door without you knowing it.
Question: A while back you wrote about a lubricant that was good for garage doors. My garage door keeps hanging, and I have to help it up. It's a pain. So if I use this lubricant...will my door start working again?
Answer: The product is called Tri-Flow. And it's great for garage doors that have started hanging and not moving up the track smoothly. Just clean out the old grease in the track. Use paint thinner on a rag. And then when the track is all clean, spray the tracks, rollers, anything that moves. You are not going to have to lift that door again – it will fly up that track. It's good that you are taking care of this...a jumping garage door is really hard on the opener. You included...Ha!
Question: I have a patio slab that I want to paint. There is a gap where it has separated from the house. Should I fill those gaps with cement?
Answer: Don't use cement, fill up the last 3/8's with sand. Then use Big Stretch to fill the gap. Big Stretch comes in colors.
I have a front yard faucet that is so difficult to use because it points straight down. So instead of fighting with it every time I change hoses....I installed some quick connect on the hoses and the faucets. I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner!
