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!

Natural Soy Products Paint Stripping Product Features:

    Removes paint overspray, wood stains, water based sealers, linseed oils, latex stains, laquer overspray, and stencil paints

Paint Remover and Paint Stripper, Non Toxic, No Methylene Chloride

by Barbara 17. July 2012 14:02

Question about Natural Soy Products Paint Remover.

Question: "I am looking for a paint stripper or paint remover for removing latex, oil-based and lead-based paint including silver and black spray paint. I prefer a paint stripper that does not contain methylene chloride. Also I want a versatile product that can be used on wood, metal, concrete, glass, aluminum siding, tile, spray equipment, clothing, carpeting, concrete, brick, brushes and furniture. Does SoyClean (Natural Soy Products )paint remover meet my needs? I'd like to purchase it in at least one gallon containers. Thanks. Tom."


Answer:  Natural Soy Products Paint Remover and Stripper is a natural, soy-based, non-toxic product that rinses away with water. Natural Soy Products Paint Stripper is made from 100% all natural ingredients, so it contains no hazardous ingredients. Because Natural Soy Products stripper is non-toxic, paint removal may take a bit longer. The advantages though are that you will have no exposure to cancer causing substances like methylene chloride, also called dichloromethane. That is a volatile, colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Methylene chloride is used in various industrial processes, in many different industries including paint stripping, pharmaceutical manufacturing, paint remover manufacturing, and metal cleaning and degreasing. The most common means of exposure to methylene chloride is inhalation and skin exposure. OSHA considers methylene chloride to be a potential occupational carcinogen.. According to the US Dept of Labor, methylene chloride, also called dichloromethane, is a volatile, colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor.

The most common means of exposure to methylene chloride is inhalation and skin exposure. OSHA considers methylene chloride to be a potential occupational carcinogen.

Paint Stripper Instructions: 

    Shake product for at least one minute.
    Apply liberally to surface. Avoid using on plastic or vinyl.
    Allow product time to work.   The longer you let it set, the less work you have to do to remove the paint.   If there are several layers of paint, or if the paint has been there for a very long time, we recommend letting the product soak over night. This Paint Stripper will penetrate multiple layers of paint for several hours, without needing to be reapplied. That's the beauty of the soybean oil! It won't evaporate like toxic strippers.
    Test a small area to see if the paint is softened and ready to be removed. Rinse surface clean with water. Neutralize surface with mild dish soap, like Dawn for example.

Help, Barbara, I Need Pantry Moth Traps!

by Barbara 4. April 2009 08:06

Question about Contech Pantry Moth Traps.

Q: " "Barbara, this is Mom. I have a great idea for a product you should sell, Pantry Moth Traps. " This is what my 87 year old Mom told me two weeks ago (March 23, 2009) when she phoned me. After living for over 50 years in her home, Mom had pantry moths for the first time. She suspected they were either in birdseed or dog kibble stored in her kitchen pantry closet. She thought they were clothes moths for the first few days but then realized, not. (Note: My Beloved Mother left this world on November 11, 2012. She was 91 on October 31, 2012. She was my best friend. I miss her and her wisdom so much.)

Answer: Guess what Mom! I've been selling pantry moth traps for the past year as well as fruit fly traps,yellow jacket and wasp traps and fly traps!

Being a good daughter, I promptly sent her two sets of traps. Mom responded that within the first day she'd already captured 11 moths!

What are pantry moths? How do we get them? And how do we get rid of them.

Pantry moths are found in bird seed, flour, dog food, biscuits, pasta, cereal, dried beans, bread, spices, cookies, etc. Store birdseed, dog food and similar products in sealed containers. Birdseed is especially inviting to pantry moths so its better to store that outside on a screened porch or in the garage.

Pantry moth larva are very small, about the size of a grain of rice. When I had an infestation years ago, they came into my house in a box of crackers. I didn't notice them until they literally had eaten into a bag of rice. When you spot moths or larva, increase your search. If you find them or webbing or larva, get rid of that food fast!

The Contech Pantry Moth traps are non-toxic and use pheromones to lure the moths. Each package contains two lures and two sticky pads. The lures attract moths for 4 to 8 weeks. When the sticky pad is full of moths, discard and open another trap. Our moth traps catch 4 times more moths than comparable traps used by the commercial pest control industry.

Use one trap per room: you don't want to confuse the moths by giving them more than one option! Mom put one trap in the pantry closet, one in the kitchen and one in each bedroom on the first floor. Also clean out your cupboards, vacuum them thoroughly and dispose of the vacuum bag or canister contents outside into a sealed bag that goes immediately into the garbage. Then wipe out the cupboards with a vinegar solution.

Thanks, Mom, for contributing to my Blog and for being my Mom!
Love, 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
