I had sales rep
come into my office the other day and plop down a product called “Quick Clean Disinfectant”. I looked at
him and said, “So?” He proceeded to talk
to me about disinfectants and did I know that most disinfectants take much
longer to kill bacteria that most people allow them. In other words they spray a disinfectant like
Lysol on a surface and then immediately wipe it off. I always thought that it killed on
contact. I’m not knocking Lysol, but it
does take 10 minutes to kill bacteria. Quick Clean Disinfectant will kill
bacteria in 5 seconds, but you leave it on a surface wet for 2 minutes. It is safe to use on stainless steel,
Formica, glass, plastic, sealed granite, and glazed ceramic tile. It’s one of the few disinfectants you can use
on sealed fiberglass, acrylic and vinyl.
You know I really like Delete Germ, and it is a disinfectant. But there is no way you can use it on
fiberglass and acrylic. Quick Clean Disinfectant can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, kennels, and
gyms, any where there is a problem with bacteria. It will kill the bacteria that are the cause
of the common cold. With the cold season
coming on us, I thought you might want to know that. You can use it in dog kennels to kill canine
parvovirus. When you use it on food
surfaces be sure and rinse with clean water.
I don’t want to list every bacterium it will kill, but it kills some
real tough ones. This Quick Clean Disinfectant is made in the
United States and retails for $5.99.
Now to the email….
Question: Johnnie, I
would like to buy all the other volumes of your book. I have volume 10, but I would like to have 1-9. I want to give a set to my son who just
bought his first house!
Answer: You don’t
have to have all those other volumes.
When we put a book together, we go through all the volumes and pull out
the products that are still available and add any new product that we have
found. Our first book was under 30
pages, and our current book is over 120.
There are some products like Jomax,
and Renz EZ, that were in the first
book and they are still great products 20 years later. But then there are answers that we gave to
remove white rings from furniture (cigar ashes and mayo) that has been replaced
by White Ring Remover. So give your son Volume 10 of the Best of Johnnie Chuoke and he will be
Question: Johnnie, I
was in your store in San Antonio last week and I thought I heard you say that
you were coming to Humble (my home town).
Is that true? Where will you
be? Will you speak?
Answer: Yes we have
been invited back to the Humble Home and
Garden Show. It’s February 21-22,
2015. I plan to speak as many times as
they will let me and we will have a booth to sell products. Hope to see you and many more there!
Question: Johnnie can
you settle a discussion between me and my better half. I want to install ceiling fans in our family
room. I have been told that we won’t
need them for another few months, because it is getting cooler. I want to install them now because I thought
you said that you could put them on reverse and pull the heat off the ceiling. So would installing the fans right now really
help during the cool months?
Very good question. Yes ceiling
fans will pull the heat off the ceiling when you flip the switch to make the
fan go in reverse. Regency Fans have the slowest reverse of any ceiling fans. If you think that reversing a fan doesn’t do
anything, go ahead and do it now and see if the room doesn’t start heating
up. One day we were at the store in the
heat of summer and someone had accidently reverse the fan about the cashier. She was complaining about the heat and we
just couldn’t understand it until we looked at the fan above her. We changed the fan to forward, and
immediately she was cool again. Ceiling
fans by Regency are a great
investment, and at Johnnie Chuoke’s Home
and Hardware we sell them for 50% off retail….all the time!
