Winning Stain Removal Seminar
The May stain removal seminar in Cranberry was a huge success.
Jane Zellers of JCZ Training and Consulting, and Bob Edwards, along with Chris Patten, both from A.L. Wilson, showed the attendees how to recognize stains, followed by basic proper procedures. They learned advanced techniques and how to use bleaches.
“Very instructive for both the beginner and the veteran, interesting and interactive” commented one attendee.
Look for the next Stain Removal Clinic in eastern Pennsylvania in the fall.
