A while back I had a customer come
in and she was in an area of the store that had the commercial window
cleaning supplies. We carry that because we have a few window
washers in the area. She was loading up all this equipment and so I
asked her about her company. She then told me she was just getting
supplies to clean her windows at her home. I asked her had she ever
Rinz EZ?Rinz EZ is the smartest way to clean
your windows. You simply put a package of
Rinz EZ soap in the
applicator and add water, and stir. Then you attach it to your hose
and start cleaning the windows. You want to do this in the cool of
the morning because the
Rinz EZ sheets off cleanly to leave
you a spot free window. If the glass is hot, the
Rinz EZ will
dry too quickly. You can easily do 16 windows in 30 minutes. You
can even reach the 2
nd story windows from the ground with
Rinz EZ applicator. No more getting on a ladder. When I
had a boat and a lake house, I always cleaned the boat and wet jets
with the left over
Rinz EZ. You can wash your car, it’s
very versatile. After I showed my customer the
Rinz EZ she
put back all the commercial stuff and walked out with one bag and a
much easier job in mind.
Now to the email…..
Question: Hey Johnnie! I have really
been trying to be as energy conscious as I can. I know one time you
talked about a insulation that goes in the wall switch. What was the
name, so that I know what to ask for at my local hardware store?
Answer: They are called MD Dual
Purpose Light Switch Sealers
. You remove the plate and put the
sealer over the switch and then put back on the switch plate. It’s
just that easy.
think that this is a waste of time, just put your hand over your

Question: I have some
brick floors in a sun room out back. They used to be real shiny, but
now they are just kind of dull. I had a company come out and quote
me a price on re-sealing the floors. It was a shocker. So I thought
I would do it myself. Do you have any suggestions?
Answer: There is a
and it will put a shine on those bricks in no time flat. On a clean
floor, mop on the
and let dry. You will immediately see a shine. You want more shine?
Just keep adding coats! I did my wood floor in my dining room in 10
minutes. And it’s not a wax, it’s a polymer finish so you never
have to strip it off, you just walk it off. When the floor is not as
shiny as you like….just put on another coat! Instant shine again.
Question: I have a garage
door that struggles sometimes because the rails get dirty from all
the grease I put on them. I have to take all the grease and dirt
out, and that is a real job. Do you think there is a better way to
keep the rails lubricated so that the doors go up and down smoothly?
I know it’s not good for the opener to stop and start when the
doors get hung.
Answer: That grease makes
the doors move smooth as first, but after the grease attracts dirt
and dust …it doesn’t work as well. My suggestion is to remove
the grease with paint thinner on a rag. After the rails are all
clean, spray them with
Tri Flo is a superior
lubricant that doesn’t attract dust. I like to call it
. You can use Tri
on motorcycle chains, bearings, locks,
fishing equipment. Almost anything that needs a lubricant, you can
Question: Quick question
– what can I use to remove the sealer that is on some ceramic
flooring? It didn’t get applied correctly, so it stays sticky.
