Non-Toxic Paint Stripper and Paint Remover for Wood and Hard Surfaces

Question about the Natural Soy Products Paint Stripper 22 oz.

Question: "How does this product work? We are concerned about product safety. Thanks. Stan"

Answer: Removes lead and oil based paints, varnish, shellac and acrylic lacquer from almost any surface. Removes multiple layers with one application.The soybean oil gives the Paint Stripper an Extra long wet time. So while, it isn’t designed to work immediately, it is VERY effective when it is allowed time to work. The longer you let it set, the less scrubbing you will have to do. With only one application, you will be able to remove multiple layers of paint. SoyClean Graffiti Remover and Adhesive and Mastic Remover work the same way – even when removing tough carpet glue or tile mastic!

Choices of Medical Exam Gloves, Latex Gloves, Powdered Gloves, Vinyl Gloves, Etc.

Question about different types of exam gloves.

Q: "I am confused. What are the different types of exam gloves? Why would one type be better than another? Thanks. Susan"

Answer: According to my research (and the products Safe Home Products is selling from medical suppliers), there are three main types of examination gloves.

For general patient care, choose the least expensive that meet your needs. For example, latex gloves are great unless you have a latex allergy. I break out from latex band-aids. In fact, once I had a mole removed and the scar and inflammation from the latex adhesive was worse than the scar left from the incision!

Cleaning company employees generally wear vinyl gloves when cleaning bathrooms, powder rooms, etc. to protect against germs

Sterile exam gloves are individually packaged. These are used when working with patients with open wounds.

Surgical gloves meet higher standards

  • Latex gloves: still the surgeon's favorite. Often have a polymer inner coating for easier donning whether hands are damp or dry.
  • Polyisoprene surgical gloves: synthetic polyisoprene offers a similar tactile sensitivity to latex. Often has a polymer inner coating as well.
  • Neoprene surgical gloves:synthetic neoprene is latex-free. Like latex, neoprene give both excellent barrier protection plus a similar fit and feel. Less elastic than latex. Available with polymer inner coating. More expensive than latex to produce.

Safe Home Products will be carrying surgical gloves in the future.

I hope this helps with your decision.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara
