Lambswool Dusters Made in Canada Are Fully Washable and Attract Dust

by Barbara 9. June 2011 08:30

Question about the lambswool dusters, the Lambswool Duster, 10 inch Head, with Standard Handle and the Lambswool Duster w/ Telescope Handle, Assorted Colors

Q: "Are these made in China? I prefer to buy products either Made in USA or Made in Canada. Also are these washable? And are they sturdy enough for a cleaning service? Thanks. Sue."

Answer: These are made in Canada with Canadian wool. Our  primary customers are large hotel and motel chains, cleaning and janitorial services and private companies who have their own cleaning and maintenance personnel. Individuals often purchase these dusters along with our Bona Kemi and Sh-Mop products if they do their own housecleaning.

The standard handle duster has a sturdy plastic handle that is 16 inches long, 26 inches with the 10 inch lambswool dusting head. We buy these in cartons of assorted colors as we do the lambswool duster with telescoping handle. Each has an end loop for hanging or you can thread a cord through for hanging if you choose.

The extended length, telescoping duster has the same 10 inch long lambswool duster head. The handle locks at the length you prefer. The handle extends to 42 inches from 32 inches.

Before using, spin the duster between your hands to open up the wool. Repeat after cleaning to shake out dust after use. When necessary, wash in warm, soapy water. When dry, spin duster handle to regain fullness. Lambswool attracts and retains dust: synthetics often do not.

Thanks for your question.
Sincerely,
Barbara

Soy-Based, Non-Toxic Graffiti Remover and Paint Remover Made in USA

by Barbara 22. June 2008 06:40

Question about the product: SoyClean Graffiti Remover 22 oz.

Q: "Can this product be used on automobiles without harming the car finish?"- Geraldine

Answer: Natural Soy Products, formerly Soy Clean, does not recommend use of this product on a car as damage may occur to the finish. If your car was spray painted, we suggest you take the car to an auto body/paint shop for their evaluation.

ThiGraffiti Remover was formulated to remove graffiti, inks, magic marker and paint from hard surfaces. It works well to remove silver paint, black paint and enamel paints. SoyClean is a 100% natural, soy-based, non-toxic product that rinses away with water. Most other graffiti removers on the market are harsh and even dangerous to users and the environment. SoyClean contains no hazardous ingredients. This cleaner also comes in larger containers. Try the SoyClean Graffiti Remover 1 Gallon size if you have large areas to clean. It is also available in 5 gallon buckets and in 55 gallon drums.

Soy Clean Graffiti Remover and Paint Remover Details:

    100% all natural ingredients
    Soy based formula
    Environmentally friendly
    Non-toxic
    No caustic fumes
    Biodegradable
    Non flammable
    Non abrasive
    Made in Brooklyn, Iowa, USA.


How Do I Use this Graffiti Remover?

    Shake well
    Test an area to see effect on the surface. 5 to 15 minutes is usually the maximum time needed to dissolve the graffiti.
    Remember this is not a "quick" stripper like a VOC based product.
    Graffiti is usually only one layer of paint so dissolving the graffiti is not a long process.
    Spray on graffiti. Following your test above, either gently wipe off with a sharp putty knife or remove with disposable cloths.
    Spray surface with water from a hose or moderate pressure sprayer.
    If desired, neutralize the surface if a mixture of liquid dish soap such as Dawn, Joy, etc. mixed with water.


Cautions on Graffiti Remover:

    Handle in the presence of adequate ventilation.
    Wear safety glasses.
    Keep container tightly closed when not in use.
    Store away from heat, sparks, open flame, strong oxidizing agents and direct sunlight.
    Keep out of reach of children.

Good luck.

Sincerely, Barbara

Which Dust Mop Covers are Best for My Needs?

by Barbara 28. October 2001 12:49
Q: "I wish to purchase a Sh-Mop and several accessories from your company. I would like more information about the Sh-Duster dusting covers and the microfiber mop covers. I have read and understand that one is a yarn-duster and the other is similar to a Swiffer, but what is the functional difference between the two? What aspect of these two items would make one a better choice than the other for a consumer? Thank you for your assistance with this. I look forward to a speedy reply because my dust bunnies are about to revolt. Thanks. Karen"

Answer: The yellow duster cover is long strands of acrylic yarn that can get into corners. The Sh-Micro is more like a Swiffer as is the Bona full sized microfiber cover as they have a static charge as long as you don't use fabric softener. The cotton Sh-Duster won't attract as much of the finer grit but will wash cleaner as cotton lets go of dust and particles more easily than the acrylic.

The cotton Sh-Duster works well wet if you have grooves in tile. You can use the Bona microfiber covers or the Sh-Micro cover wet or dry. Both are woven so they will move well across flooring if it is wet or dry.

Comment from Customer: "Thanks for such a prompt reply! I think I will order the yarn mop for everyday collection of the dust-bunnies (actually, they are dust-beagles, and quite large) and get the micro-fiber cloth cover for thorough dust removal before damp mopping. Does this sound reasonable based on your experience? I have hardwood floors all over my house. I noticed the dustmop comes in both cotton and synthetic fibers. Is there a reason to select one over the other? Thanks again,Karen. P.S. I checked many sites and yours had the best prices by far. It was also one of the more professional-looking sites."

Answer: As I mentioned before, I think the acrylic is better at grabbing the bunnies but the cotton will wash "out" better. For hardwood, I'd probably go with the acrylic.Thanks for the compliments. We try to have it be a practical user-friendly site. Barbara
