Cleaning Up Auto Rustproofing Residue From Asphalt - The EATOILS Way!

Rustproofing on asphalt BEFORE
This is what can happen when someone gets their car undercoated or rustproofed and the car sits for awhile in front of your home.  This happened to me a short while ago and it certainly didn't look too appealing to walk down the street and see this mess at my front door - I'm certainly glad that my 'friend' didn't park in my driveway and do this to me on my property!  I knew that EATOILS™ BT200™ would clean up the oily mess if it was on concrete, but I wasn't sure that it would work as well on asphalt.  I knew that it would degrade hydrocarbon oils with its 'non-stop cleaning action' - a natural microbial action that deep cleans the worst stains on concrete, asphalt, and even soil - but I wasn't sure how well it would do on rustproofing fluid.  I also knew that if I left it untreated the marks would be there as an embarrassment for me for years to come.  I was very concerned about the look of the area, so I took some of our EATOILS™ BT200™ and sprayed it (in a 5:1 mixture) on the asphalt to see if it would clean up for me.  Once the area was wet with water and the product, I brushed it in with a street broom and let it dry.  After the first application the stain was lighter, but the marks were all still there.  Over the next few days I monitored the product's progress and I watched how the marks continued to fade.  After about 10 days, I noticed that the stains had faded about 30% so I re-applied the product at 5:1 and brushed it in again.  After another week it had faded approximately 70% so I re-applied it on day 20, brushed it in and waited for it to fade the rest of the way.  By the end of the month it was virtually completely gone (see the second picture for the way it looked).
AFTER 1 month (3 treatments)
After seeing this work on rustproofing fluid we have introduced the product to professional rustproofing clients and they are now using the product in their operations for spill control and clean-up.  If you know of anyone who is working with oil products who is dealing with spills this is the one product that they should be using for spill response and clean-up.  EATOILS™ BT200™ is a certified green cleaning and bioremediating product that safely and effectively addresses the problems caused by hydrocarbon spills. This product is GREENER-CHOICE APPROVED GREEN.

A Skunk, A White Cat, And Tomato Juice - The True Story

We hear these types of stories all the time, but this one was a little different.  This is the story of a little white cat who came across a skunk and the result of that encounter.

Recently, I was at one of my regular networking meetings with several of my colleagues from different industries.  Linda, the local Kwik Kopy Printing franchise owner, was talking about her recent weekend trip away from town and what she came home to . . .

"While I was away, it seems that my little white cat, Mader (shown here with her buddy, Abby, The Black Lab) went out exploring near our property and somehow had found herself 'face to face' with another pussycat - a  little black and white striped pussycat - not! - it was a very real, very smelly SKUNK!  The skunk was apparently not impressed with our little Mader or her advances, so as skunks do, she sprayed our little kitty.  Anyway, when she finally came home she smelled very skunkish so the lady who was housesitting for us tried the 'old tomato juice treatment' on our poor little pussy, washing her from head to toe in the stuff to get rid of the skunk smell.  When she was finished she was horrified to find that our little white pussy had turned PINK - and that she smelled worse than ever! As you've probably gathered by now, the old home remedy of tomato juice doesn't work to remove skunk odor. 

By the time my husband and I got home from our trip, our housesitter was quite upset about the whole thing and worried for our poor little 'skunky' kitty.  As soon as I dropped my bags, I went to the cleaning supply cupboard and pulled out my trusty EATOILS™ SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ and began to soak Mader in it.  I rubbed it into her coat and all over - everywhere that the tomato juice had gone.  The skunk smell was gone in seconds and the pink from the tomato juice  was gone too!  A quick rinse in the shower - luckily, Mader loves the shower, and a good rubdown with a nice warm towel and Mader was as good as new!  It's now several weeks later and there is no sign of the skunk smell or that awful pink color - and Mader is off exploring once again - only this time she'll know not to approach a striped kitty if she comes across one!"

Linda has used our EATOILS™ SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ for cleaning both of her pets, their bedding, litter areas, and wherever accidents occur.  She swears by our products and she refers us to her friends - and with stories like these, who wouldn't want to try our products!

I still can't get over the fact that her cat loves to take a shower!  I've had cats who will stand on the side of the tub and glare at me - but never one who wanted to join in! This product is GREENER-CHOICE APPROVED GREEN.

We love hearing these stories and sharing them with our readers.  If you know of anyone who has had an amazing experience or a success story that they would like to share please have them contact me at and we'll be glad to share it.  For information about our products please come to our website at .  If you have any questions we will be glad to answer them (in North America) toll free at 866 621 8244 during business hours Monday to Friday (9:00AM - 5:00PM Eastern Time).  You can reach us by e-mail at any time.

Combining New Technologies Provides Synergy For Remediation Projects - And Cost Effective Alternatives

For many years the task of in-situ remediation of brownfields has been a difficult one - with cost overruns and ineffective remediation techniques being the most common result.  Oxidizing chemicals have been somewhat successful and bioremediation has been reliable for hydrocarbons, given enough time.

At WorldWare Enterprises Ltd., we have been providing microbes and nutrients for bioremediation and accelerated bioremediation projects for several years and we have had many success stories, particularly with household heating oil spills and the resultant insurance claims.

Recently, some of the contractors who use our products have discovered the synergy of combining remediating methods with new techniques for delivering product directly to the contaminants - and the results have been very impressive.  By combining the advantages of using specialized oxidizing formulas (fast acting degradation of many contaminants plus addition of large amounts of oxygen into the contaminant plume) with the advantages of accelerated bioremediation (complete breakdown of hydrocarbons over time) and these new delivery techniques, they have found the remediation timeline can be dramatically reduced and the cost of the job can be very competitive.  The first clients to try this new approach were those who were disappointed with previous methods (vapor extraction, typical oxidizing approaches, bio-augmentation and nutrient loading techniques) that had not provided the expected results.  When these new approaches were tried and the results were so dramatic and in such a short time, thorough investigations were conducted to ensure that the results were really that good.  Time and again the independent testing confirmed the complete clean-up of the sites.  To date, there have been successes with industrial sites (heavy metals & TPH), former gas stations (TPH and BTEX), hydro facilities (TPH and PCBs), automotive plants (PCVs and TCEs), groundwater and residential spills.

The results have been dramatic - complete clean-up in record time! Furthermore, by combining the approaches the products consumed have been optimized and the contaminant levels have been reduced to well below government standards!  The net results are lower project cost and faster turnaround time!

This has prompted some of these contractors to provide a guarantee for their remediation projects - yes, a guarantee!

As we move forward we are aligning ourselves with these successful contractors to provide a complete solution to remediation of all types of contaminants.

If you know of someone who is currently struggling with a contaminated site and looking for a reasonable alternative treatment we would be pleased to provide a remediation proposal using these new technologies.
