Quick Tips

Do you have a quick tip that you use that simplifies your work? Share it with your fellow cleaners here…

  • The Right Brush for Each Task
    Use the correct brush, and don’t mix their use: 1. Black brush – dryside brush used for solvent based stain removal products. 2. White brush – wetside brush used for water based stain removal products. 3. Hog Bristle brush – a soft bristled brush for stain removal used on delicate fabrics. 4. Use cheesecloth to wrap around a bristled brush to make a soft, padded brush for delicate items.

  • Soaking Garments Overnight
    When you want to soak a garment overnight, cover it with a towel so that the garment stays completely submerged.
