EATOILS(TM) Products Used To Clean Up Diesel Tanker Spill On Highway In Northern Ontario

Illustration 1: Typical Example of a Diesel Tanker Truck Rollover on a rural road in winter
In April, 2012, a tanker truck, containing a full load of diesel fuel, was disabled and rolled over on a highway in Northern Ontario, spilling diesel fuel onto the adjacent land, wetland, and waterway. The truck was removed and an initial site clean up was completed. Representatives from the MOE(Ministry of the Environment) and MNR(Ministry of Natural Resources) were consulted, soil and water samples were taken, and the residual amount of contamination was determined to be sufficient to initiate a remediation program as soon as possible. The impacted area was approximately 50 ft. X 50 ft. X 1-2 ft of depth. The water table was below the impacted site at approximately 5 ft. (initial levels of TPH were determined to be 300,000 ppm(parts per million) on site).

The client called our office and advised us of the details involved and we put together a treatment program to address the particular characteristics of the site – large wetland area on one side of the road where the tanker had lost the fuel, with a waterway leading out of the wetland into a culvert below the roadway and out to a creek bed on the other side of the road.

Product was prepared and shipped to the contractor's location and delivered the following day. Over the next 4 days the site received 4 – 6 inches of snow. In the meantime, the contractor was building his equipment to treat the site and he was able to apply the first treatment as the snow was melting – a few days later. Our remediation plan called for a staged dosing of oil eating microbes, natural surfactants plus nutrients for a period of 35 days. Readings were taken on the 25th day and the TPH had dropped to below 6000 ppm. On the 50th day additional readings were taken and levels were below detectable range for TPH but a few individual fractals were reported in the 200-250 ppb(parts per billion) range. Even though the microbes were continuing to reduce the hydrocarbons, an additional dose of microbes was added on the 61st day, just to be sure that the site would be released as clear in the next few days.

Independent readings were taken at the site and they confirmed our preliminary findings. The site was released and the bog was only minimally impacted by the remediation process.

Another Personal Skunk Experience and Testimonial

Here's a testimonial direct from one of our customers about our SUPERFRESH(TM)
Dear Mr. Robinson,

Good Morning - I am contacting you directly - hoping you can point me to a local distributor in my area. (New Hampshire)
I would like to purchase more of the super fresh solution - PRONTO!  =)

A little background on why I LOVE your products...

A year ago while still living in The Woodlands, TX - my dogs were sprayed by what I christened "The Atomic Skunk".  Making the situation even more problematic - Our home was on the market for sale and we had back to back showings scheduled.  I was in a state of full blown panic.

My husband - who was of course out of town - did some very detailed internet searches and found your distributor, Doug Rucker from Kingwood, Texas.

Doug was at my home bright and early the next morning.  He was extremely professional - calmed me down - explained about the product - how it worked
and what he was going to do.  The house and dogs were totally covered in skunk smell.  It was BAD...   I thought - we are NEVER going to get this smell out.
And we were NEVER going to sell our beautiful - but now smelly - home.   

I am VERY happy to admit I was wrong.  Doug literally is my hero!!!   He helped me with the dogs.  Sprayed the ENTIRE 3500 square foot house several times
and promised that if the odor was not gone in 24 hours - he would be back and keep coming back until it was taken care of.

I figured - at the very least - I the house would need to be treated at least one more time.  As the hours ticked by - the odor abated.  

As part of the service that Doug performed - he left me with a small concentrated bottle of solution and a large spray bottle already mixed and filled. We did need to douse the dogs several more times - but - the odor control was highly effective and I was thankful to be able to use a product that would not hurt them.

Since that fateful day - we sold the house very shortly thereafter and completed our move to New Hampshire. The solution that Doug left with us is nearly gone - and I have used it time and again to get rid of some really tough "doggie" stains and odors.

Which brings me to 8:30 pm last night when - sure enough - the dog got sprayed again!!!   I was down to my last few ounces of product and mixed the rest of it into the spray bottle with a little more water and went right to work.   

Doug was kind enough to send me info on how to order the product online and have it shipped, which I will happily do - but - if there is a business in the area that sells the product - I would love to get my hands on some quickly.  Either way - I am a confirmed believer in this magic spray!!!

Very Best Regards and I look forward to hearing from you.

M. B.

Testimonial - EATOILS(TM) SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM) Works Wonders At Cleaning Up Smoke And Tar Stains In A Residential Property

Regularly, we mention actual applications where our products have been used to clean up after smoke and fire damage, but these products are excellent for cleaning up after folks who smoke in their homes too!  Here is a testimonial from one of our regular clients, Justin Loucks, our local Allstate Insurance agent here in Cambridge.  Justin also uses this product on his hockey equipment to control odors.
justin writes: "I am sending you this e-mail to thank you for providing me with such a wonderful product EATOILS(TM) SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM). Last year I was given the task of cleaning and painting my grandparent's house as it had been up for sale for several months without any offers. My Grandparent's were extremely heavy smokers and the house smelled like an 'ash tray' and had a film coating of smoke tar on all the walls. I knew that painting the walls would help the house cosmetically but it would not be able to get rid of the odour. Thank you for recommending the SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM).
I used the SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM) to clean off all the walls and it worked wonders. Just from spraying the walls you could see the tar lift right off without even scrubbing. We used it to clean the entire main level and immediately you could notice an improvement in the air quality - and the smoke odour was quickly going away. The next day we painted the walls and after we were done you would not be able to notice that anyone had smoked inside the house. I am really thankful to Charles and his EATOILS(TM) products as they work like magic - it is a good feeling knowing you are using a product 1) that is eco-friendly, and 2) that does not contain  hazardous chemicals (like the competition).
Amazingly, the house sold the very next week.
I have attached a photo of one of the rooms... it doesn't show the SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM) in action but you get the idea! :)"
Justin's Grandparents home during the cleanup

Thank you Justin.  So, there you have it - another happy customer who loves our SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM) product - not only for soft surfaces like hockey equipment and carpet, fabric and upholstery, but also for hard surface cleaning and deodorizing - like walls, ceilings, floors and counters too!  This really is a product for virtually all of your household cleaning jobs - it outperforms most other products, and when you factor in the cost, it is usually much more cost effective than other cleaning products.  For most cleaning applications you only use 2 oz. of product per gallon of warm water - so you get 17 gallons of cleaner from every litre/1.11 qt. bottle of concentrate - that's less than $1.50 per gallon of powerful cleaner!  Compare at $3 - $4 or more per quart bottle of ready to use product in the store. . .

A New Discovery! BT200(TM) Removes Black Walnut Stains From 'TREX' and Other Composite Decks

The other day we received an inquiry over the internet asking for a solution for a black walnut stain on a composite deck.  Apparently, the black walnut tree overhangs the deck of the client and when the nuts fall from the tree they leave a dark stain on the decking material.  Black walnut leaves a nasty, pervasive stain that can be very hard to remove.

As it happens, we also have a black walnut tree in our yard and occasionally it drops nuts on our barbecue area, leaving stains on the concrete pad and composite trays on sides of the barbecue.  So, I went out to the barbecue and tried some of our EATOILS™ BT200™ to see how it would handle the nasty stains from when the nuts last fell, a few months ago - diluted at 3 parts water to 1 part BT200™, I sprayed the stains(5) and brushed them with a soft bristle brush and in 5 minutes all the stains were gone from both the composite material and the concrete pad.

We already know EATOILS™ BT200™  does an amazing job on 'TREX' and composite decks where bbq grease and decaying leaves have left ugly stains. - Just spray with EATOILS™ BT200™  and brush, and the stains are gone!  Now, after this trial, we know it will also look after the stains left by other organic materials like nuts and seeds - give it a try and let us know how it works for you.

EATOILS™ BT200™ works wonders on all kinds of stains - not just oil and grease.  Use it for all your tough cleaning jobs like:

- Removing rubber marks, tire marks from warehouse floors,
- Removing tracking oil & grease stains from factory floors, garage floors,
- Removing oil and grease stains from exterior concrete & asphalt, drive thru's, dumpster areas,
- Safely removing scuff marks from wood floors,
- Safely removing tracking oil & grease stains on carpeting,
- Deep cleaning transition areas between factory and office areas,
- Brightens painted surfaces by removing excess oxidation and revealing the bright paint underneath,
- 'TREX' & composite deck cleaning, removing bbq oils, food grease, leaf & other organic stains,
- Removing mold and mildew from all surfaces,
- Degreaser for marine, RV, vinyl, Aluminum siding, etc.

EATOILS™ BT200™ is GREENER-CHOICE APPROVED GREEN, safe for hands and clothing, solvent free and contains no harsh chemicals. For more info or to order this product click here

High Efficiency Washing Machine Causing Odors And Marking Your Clothes? Use EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ And Your Problems Will Be Solved!

 Left Picture: View of rubber gasket from outside washing machine.

Right Picture: View of inside rubber gasket showing mold and mildew deposits.

If you own a high efficiency front load washing machine then you have probably been very pleased with the fact that these washing machines 1) clean your clothing better with less water, 2) make your clothes come out of the washing machine dryer (due to a high speed final spin cycle, which allows for less drying time), and 3) save time and money due to their energy saving features.

One thing you may not be happy about is the fact that these washing machines can and will cause your laundry area as well as your clothes to have a mold or mildew type smell.  Also, you might notice that occasionally you can get a dark mark on one or more of your laundry items.

The odor and mark are both caused by the rubber gasket that is located immediately inside the front door of the machine. As you can see in the pictures above, the inner lining of the gasket is manufactured in such a way that water can collect at the bottom of the gasket causing the water to sit there between loads. Wet rubber can mark clothing on its way into and out of the machine.  Couple that with the fact that the area inside the gasket gets no light, is damp, and warm, and you have a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew spores to form and grow.

Manufacturers of these washers suggest that you always leave the door slightly ajar to allow air in. They also sell or recommend using a machine cleaning solution or small tablets that you can use in a wash cycle every two to three weeks to help clean the inside of the gasket. While doing these two things may help, they do not totally remove the mold, odor, or prevent the occasional marking of clothing.

Here is how to fix these problems: Clean the inside of the gasket thoroughly using our EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ Certified Green Cleaning Solution. Mix at 4 ounces to a gallon of warm water and clean the inside of the gasket using a small soft bristled brush and a rag. 1) Spray liberally inside the gasket with the diluted SUPERFRESH™ solution, 2) lightly scrub the gasket with a soft bristled brush, 3) let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, 4) and wipe with a damp rag. You will be amazed at the amount of mold and mildew that you will remove. At this point the mold and mildew will be eliminated and removed from the gasket along with the odor.  After thoroughly cleaning the gasket, spray some more of the SUPERFRESH™  solution inside the whole circumference of the gasket and machine and allow to air dry.

Once you are done cleaning the gasket, you can spray any clothing or towels that may have absorbed the odor. Using your spray bottle, mist the clothing or towel items just until lightly damp and this will remove any residual odor. Remember the SUPERFRESH™ is Certified Green and will not harm you or your clothing. After treating the clothing or towels you may choose to launder again but this is not necessary.

To keep the mold, mildew, and odor from returning, spray some of the EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ diluted at 2 ounces per gallon of water inside the gasket every 1-2 weeks and continue to keep the door slightly open when the machine is not in use, per manufacturer instructions.

Here is what one client wrote to our distributor in Texas who provides the product and cleaning service to his clients, "Thanks for making my washer not so stinky! Your odor removal product ROCKS!!!! (and it's green...yea for me!)" - Mrs. C. Wheeler, Splendora, Tx.

EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ is an excellent cleaning and deodorizing product for hard surfaces like kitchen, garbage areas & bins, bathroom, tile and grout, pet litter & pet areas, - try EATOILS™ SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ for carpeting and upholstery(spot cleaning, pre-spray and full extraction cleaning), clothing(laundry pre-treat, spot removal & deodorizing), and fabric cleaning challenges. SUPERFRESH™ will also remove most odors on contact - even SKUNK odor!

Discolored Greasy Ceiling Tiles? Try Our EATOILS™ SUPER FLOOR DEGREASER™

Here’s how to clean a greasy, discolored restaurant kitchen ceiling.  Our distributor in the Houston, TX area, Clean and Green Solutions recently was called in to a local restaurant to see what they could do to help with their discolored ceiling tiles.  Over the years, fats, oils, and grease had accumulated on the surface of their ceiling tiles, especially in the kitchen over the fryer area.

Ceiling tile above the fryer area in a local restaurant – note how clean the tiles
   are compared to the original(yellow) tiles.
As the primary source of the discoloration was from airborne food grease from the fryer, we suggested cleaning the ceiling tiles with our EATOILS™ SUPER FLOOR DEGREASER™ - an ideal product for removing food grease and oils.  Also, due to the nature of our products, the client could rest assured that the products would not harm the ceiling tiles as long as they weren’t wet too much in the cleaning process.

All of our EATOILS™ products are environmentally friendly and contain no harmful ingredients.  As a matter of fact, our products contain no solvents, no VOC's(volatile organic compounds - that can cause breathing problems and allergic reactions in many people), no harsh chemicals, etc.  Without these nasty ingredients, the result is that our products clean deeper, and yet provide a safe product for you and your employees to use.  These products are so safe that you can use them without worrying that they might ruin your delicate surfaces or finishes.  EATOILS™ products are GREENER-CHOICE APPROVED GREEN to provide you with an additional level of protection for you and your facility.

So here’s what they did.  The product was mixed at 6 oz./gallon of warm water and sprayed directly onto the ceiling surface in a light foam.  After leaving the product in contact with the tiles for a few minutes, the tiles were lightly brushed with a soft brush to remove the excess product without damaging the tiles.  As you can see in the picture above, the result was very dramatic.  All oils and grease were removed and the ceiling tiles came back to virtually white again, saving the restaurant owner the cost of replacement tiles and keeping his restaurant in a much 'cleaner state'.  For more information about this product, click here.

For traditional ceiling tiles with normal discoloration from smoke, regular living, etc., you should use our EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ - it removes all types of discoloration, even mold & mildew.  This product is actually used by fire restoration companies – whenever there is a fire in a multi-unit building, the fire is usually contained to within a few apartments, but the smoke damage can be throughout the rest of the building.  EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ is used to remove the smoke from every surface in the building – walls, ceilings, furniture, carpeting, etc.  It cleans and removes the odor fast! - allowing the tenants to get back into their homes quickly.  For more information about this product, click here.

TREX Deck Cleaning With EATOILS(TM) BT200(TM)

One of the newest approaches out there for building decks is the introduction of composite deck materials.  One of the most popular composite decking systems is Trex Deck.  When cleaning a Trex Deck, great care must be taken to ensure that the decking is not damaged as it is a plastic type material. Using too much pressure while using a pressure washer can damage the Trex Decking. The contaminants that most often need cleaning off the Trex Deck are Mold + Mildew, and the occasional, and often heavy, Barbecue Grease from the grill.


Manufacturer's instructions state that to clean a Trex Deck you should use either: 1) a special brand of Deck Cleaner, 2) just warm soapy water and a bristle brush, or even 3) Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach) with soapy water.  Note: using bleach will fade the color of the Trex Deck. They also state that regular maintenance cleaning of your Trex Deck is needed to keep the Mold and Mildew stains away.

Trex Deck owners in the Kingwood, Texas and Houston, Texas areas are fortunate to have our distributor and contractor, Clean and Green Solutions, available to safely clean their Trex Decks.  When they clean Trex Decks they use our Certified Green EATOILS(TM) BT200(TM) as a Composite Deck Cleaner that will kill the Mold and Mildew and gently remove all the contaminants away.  This process is totally safe for your landscape, pets, and family. Our EATOILS(TM) Composite + Trex Deck Cleaning product contains NO dangerous chemicals and is in fact GREENER-CHOICE APPROVED Green - it returns your composite or Trex Deck back to it’s original color and beauty as shown below.

Our cleaning process and method will not cause your Trex Deck to fade and it will stay cleaner than any other recommended cleaning method.

Thank you Doug Rucker, at Clean and Green Solutions for your great pictures!  Keep up the good work! To buy some click here.

Oil Stains On Concrete Or Pavers - Use EATOILS™ BT200™ And They'll Be GONE!

hydraulic spill on concrete pavers                                             concrete pavers after using BT200

Oil stains on concrete can be a real problem. Whether it is on a roadway, driveway, restaurant drive-thru, bank drive thru, mall parking lot, parking garage, pavers, or whatever, - large or small, it can be an ugly mess!

Typical cleaners and degreasers will have some affect however, they don't go deep enough into the pores of the concrete to remove the black oil stains so only the surface of the oil is removed and a lasting stain remains - the results are usually less than satisfactory.

EATOILS™ BT200™ on the other hand, does go deep into the pores of the concrete to remove the oil residue and return the concrete to its original color.

EATOILS™ BT200™ is composed of natural surfactants, nutrients and beneficial microbes that target oils and grease with billions of tiny scrubbers to break down and digest the oils and other hydrocarbons and replace them with three harmless chemicals - oxygen, water, and carbon dioxide as a result.

Here's a testimonial from the Pressure Washing Institute's website Testimonials forum:

BT200™ and Pavers "I have been cleaning this one property’s front entrance area for about 4 years. They only clean it once a year. It has an area of red pavers (about 7500 sq. ft.), that when I got there 4+ years ago was totally wasted with leaked oil, a major stain as buses and cars park here. I told the manager back then - the best thing was to flip the pavers. He didn’t want to do that. I have cleaned the area 4 times with heavy duty degreasers and heat, but just didn’t get the stains out enough at all, I just made it better than it was. I was never happy with the finished product but the manager said it looked better. We would finish it but there were still some pretty black areas and then lighter stuff that looked okay."

"Well, this week I used EATOILS™ BT200™ on it and I have to say, it was a major difference and looked damn good, I'm pretty impressed."

"Before when we cleaned even when it was still wet you could see the oil stain. Last night we cleaned and wet areas and areas that had some time to dry out - you just couldn't see the stains that have been there for years. My guys and I were pretty surprised - and so was the maintenance guy. The stains were gone (if not 100%, certainly 90%) - it really looked good - a lot better than any other time we have cleaned. We went the night before and applied the BT200™ and went back last night and cleaned. I took some pictures but I want to go back when its 100% dry and take another look. But no matter what, it’s A LOT better."

NEXT DAY: "All I’ve got to say is WOW! After seeing how it looked last night, I really wanted to see how it looked the next day when it was dry, WOW!! As I was driving to take a look at it the property, the manager on property called to tell me how great it looked. I told him I would be there in a few minutes. Man, it looks 98% better than anytime I cleaned it before. (I did do something different on one 10x10 section last night. Where I had the BT200™ on a little area I X-jetted some Degreaser, the area wasn’t any cleaner than where I just put BT200™.)"

"Now on the pavers it is fantastic! There was some border area with a very smooth concrete and that is showing the stain shadow a little more than the pavers, but even that’s 85% cleaner than I ever got it before. This product even got in between the pavers really good - in the grooves there was no stain at all. Good stuff EATOILS™!" Testimonial from Jeff LeCours of JL PRESSURE WASHING of Myrtle Beach, SC.

Here's An Article - Defining Green And Sustainability - EATOILS(TM) Is Still Your Best Bet

Here is the text of an article this week in Housekeeping Solutions magazine by Corinne Zudonyi, editor, titled - Defining Green and Sustainability:

In 2007, 67 percent of Housekeeping Solutions readers commented that they used green cleaning products within their facility. By 2010, that number jumped to 86 percent. What's even more impressive though, only 50 percent of readers surveyed in 2007 commented that they would do whatever they could to incorporate green products into their programs. In 2010, that number shot up to 88 percent.

As green cleaning and sustainable initiatives continue to evolve and gain momentum with in-house departments, it can become difficult for managers to navigate the lexicon of changing terms.

The federal government defines green as "products and services that reduce the health and environmental impacts as compared to other products and services used for the same purpose.” Custodial managers know that incorporating these products and methods into a green cleaning program will help improve the health and environment of a building and its occupants.

However, confusion often arises when it becomes necessary for managers to go beyond green products and define product certifications, product life cycle, greenwashing or biobased products, to name a few. Here, common terms and phrases that have caused confusion over the years are defined to help managers clarify green and sustainable best practices with confidence.

Refresher Course

Not all terminology associated with green and sustainability is new to custodial managers. In fact, sometimes all that's needed is a refresher course and some clarification on what they already know.

BIOBASED PRODUCTS — Defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as "a product that is composed, in whole or in significant part, of biological products or renewable domestic agricultural materials (including plant, animal and marine materials) or forestry materials.” Some common ingredients in biobased cleaning products include citrus, coconut, corn, lavender and parsley.

It is important to note that not all biobased products are green and not all green products are biobased. For instance, while the ingredient in a product may be naturally derived, one also has to consider the toxicity, packaging and the manufacturing process.

ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERABLE PURCHASING — Purchasing products or services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose.

LEED — The U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is a rating system and certification program for facilities. Due to consistent updates made to the program, there are now nine different types of certifications available, six of which pertain to the jan/san professional — LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (scheduled for revisions in 2012), LEED for Commercial Interiors, LEED for Schools, LEED for Retail, LEED for Healthcare and LEED for New Construction. Each category of certification has specific requirements outlined pertaining to custodial departments. In addition to those requirements, there are supplementary cleaning tasks that can help earn points towards certifications.

Still Causing Confusion

Although green cleaning is a concept in-house departments are accustomed to and familiar with, there is still some confusion when talking specifics. For instance, what is the difference between cleaning for health and indoor air quality? Is green really different from sustainability? These questions, as well as others, are answered in the following descriptions.

CLEANING FOR HEALTH — Some confuse this with indoor air quality, but IAQ only addresses exposure to cleaning through inhalation, which is just part of the cleaning for health concept.

"There are three routes of exposure: inhalation, ingestion and absorption through the skin,” says Steve Ashkin, president of The Ashkin Group and The Sustainability Dashboard. "Inhalation is important, but it is only one part of the equation. Cleaning for health looks at all the issues.”

The cleaning for health concept claims that cleaning has value beyond the aesthetic, and can positively impact human health and the environment by reducing exposure to chemicals, improving indoor air quality, and reducing germs that prevent disease, allergic reaction and infection for building occupants and cleaning crews. What speaks to management: the cleaning for health concept has shown to increase worker productivity and reduce absenteeism.

ECO-LABELING — An eco-label is a logo of which is affixed to a product that suggests green or sustainability. Common labels include those from EcoLogo, Green Seal, Carpet and Rug Institute or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to name a few. Manufacturers might also put their own eco-labels on products, which is called self-certification.

Purchasers are advised to research eco-labels to confirm the accuracy of green claims. This is often easily done as many certifying bodies provide lists of products carrying their labels, as well as those fraudulently making claims.

GREENWASHING — TerraChoice and EcoLogo coined the formal definition for greenwashing as "the act of misleading consumers regarding the environmental practices of a company or the environmental benefits of a product or service.”

As the green initiative took off, independent third-party certifications became necessary to differentiate a green product from one with no environmental benefit. In addition to certifications, Green Guides were introduced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to control and clarify the terms manufacturers used to market their products as green.

Proposed revisions to these guidelines are currently being reviewed to ensure that manufacturer environmental advertising and labeling claims comply with the law and do not mislead buyers. Changes to the agency's Green Guides include new guidance on marketers' use of product certifications and seals of approval, "renewable energy” claims, "renewable materials” claims and "carbon offset” claims. Those that do not comply are considered to be greenwashing.

According to TerraChoice, developers of the Greenwashing Report and The Seven Sins of Greenwashing, more than 95 percent of consumer products claiming to be green were found to commit at least one of the "Sins of Greenwashing.”

LIFE CYCLE — The life cycle of a product is a concept that recognizes the product's impact on the environment not only during usage, but across its entire life cycle. This includes everything from the extraction of raw materials to the manufacturing process, transportation and recycling or disposal of the product. The term cradle to grave (the cradle representing where the raw materials came from and the grave representing disposal after use, according to Ashkin) is often used in conjunction with life cycle, but should not be confused with cradle to cradle.

Cradle to cradle is used to explain a product that incorporates a sustainable life cycle, but as oppose to being disposed of, is instead recycled into or reused as a product of equal or greater quality. An example of this is taking the motor out of an old piece of floor care equipment and using it in a newer model that is then reintroduced into the workforce.

RADICAL TRANSPARENCY — This is a relatively new term used in the jan/san industry and is formally defined as "a management method where nearly all decision making is carried out publicly.” In other words, radical transparency is when manufacturers honestly and completely disclose sustainable processes and product ingredients — i.e. no secrets.

SELF-CERTIFICATION — To self-certify is when a manufacturer develops their own set of certifying criteria and a certification label that confirms achievement of that criteria. Tests are often not conducted by a third party but results and additional details such as life cycle studies and inspections of operations, are traditionally made available. Purchasing agents are encouraged to review these results when determining the product's viability for a particular cleaning program. Some experts consider this a form of greenwashing, but others comment that radical transparency will support self-certification claims.

SUSTAINABILITY — The concept of sustainability is often confused with or used in conjunction with green. The main difference, though, is that green is defined by products and/or services. Sustainability is defined as a process that "meet the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Sustainability minimizes cleanings impact on people and the environment, but more importantly, it is a process, not a product.

For instance, a green certified paper towel (a product) often consists of recycled fibers from previously cut-down trees. A manufacturer practices sustainability (a process) by planting a new tree for each that is used in the development of that paper towel, replenishing forests for future generations.

"There is no such thing as a sustainable product,” says Ashkin. "Sustainability addresses how products are made or used. It is about the triple bottom line: environmental aspects, financial aspects and social equity.”

New/Revised Certifications

To help in-house managers navigate the green and sustainable lexicon, third-party certifiers have developed — and in some cases already revised — product, personal, departmental and facility certifications. The goal is to create standards for which the industry can use as a benchmark to drive green and sustainable cleaning initiatives forward.

1) To remove calcium, lime and rust stains - you need an acidic cleaner - the green answer is lemon juice - it has a pH of 2.0 yet it is safe for you to handle - and breathe - no noxious fumes! It is great in the kettle to remove scale - just add a 1/4 cup to the kettle with a cup of water and boil - the scale will be gone in less than a minute!  If you need a scrubber for, say, cleaning the tub or toilet - cut a lemon in half and use it as your SCRUBBER! - need extra abrasion? dip it in some baking soda, then scrub.

2) For deep cleansing, use a mixture of baking soda and lemon juice - the baking soda is abrasive and will remove baked on matter from pots, clean the kitchen sink, etc.

3) To sanitize, the objective is to kill germs.  In order to kill germs you need either a highly acid (pH of 2.0 or less) or a highly caustic (pH of 12 or more) solution.  Typical safe examples are ACID: Vinegar, citric acid, etc. and for CAUSTIC: Hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, 5% chlorine bleach.  The biggest need for a sanitizer is to clean food prep surfaces and toilets etc.

Aside from the areas listed above there may be rare occasions where you need a special product for a special need.  Some of those we can help you with.

We have products to help with graffiti, or paint accidents on virtually any surface.

If you get ink on a shirt or clothing try isopropyl alcohol (available at the drug store) - it is one of the secret cleaning products which works wonders on fabrics of all kinds.

EATOILS(TM) SUPER SRV(TM) Saves Time And Money While Controlling Septic System Odors

Sometimes we need to remember that the value of a product is measured by 1) what it does for us and 2) the value of the product compared to others in a meaningful way - not in how much we saved at the checkout counterA product that doesn't work is of little value and it usually is a complete waste of our hard earned money.  Septic system treatment products are a good example of this: their purpose is to break down the waste materials in our septic systems and keep them running clear and trouble free.

Some Septic treatment products do this well and we are rewarded by years of uninterrupted service, but many are either too harsh(chemical) or too weak(not enough active ingredients) to perform as expected.  Chemical treatment products usually address the odors but they don't look after the wastes as well as natural microbial treatment products.  The typical result of using the wrong product or dosage is a pungent odor from the system or, more often, a requirement for more frequent pumping - at quite a substantial cost (usually in the $300. or more range per time)! If your system is healthy and being treated with the 'right stuff' it should be pumped out every 5 - 7 years.

If your product is on the weak side you may never know - as most of us never look inside our septic tanks to see how they are doing.  We just go along, merrily adding our treatment product to the toilet once a month (or weekly, depending on the product) and we pay no attention to the result.  Unless we hear otherwise, all is well and therefore, we must be doing the right thing - because we don't know anything else!

Beware of this condition!  You could be in for a surprise when it comes time to pump out your septic tank.  If your product is too weak the waste materials in your tank will not break down as readily and you may be in for more costs as a result due to: 1) too much build-up = more frequent clean outs, 2) build-up in the tank requiring additional maintenance, 3) blocked lines requiring maintenance, and 4) poor circulation requiring maintenance.

If you are using a microbial treatment (bacteria or enzymes or a combination) the important question is how concentrated is the dose?  Some are more concentrated than others - some are actually the base or primary active  ingredient in others.  For example, our EATOILS SUPER SRV is super concentrated and it is the actually the active ingredient for many of the 'ready to use' septic treatment products on the market today.  These products contain 'fillers' and 'bulk' so that the cost per dose can be lower for you, the consumer (sometimes diluting our product down to as little as 5% of the finished product).  You could be putting up to a cup of material (that may end up blocking your system) down your toilet or as little as an ounce or two - every product is different (and impacts your tank differently).  As I mentioned at the top of this article, it is important to know the true value of the products you buy.

Our EATOILS SUPER SRV provides a much greater value to you because it delivers real results!  It is GREENER-CHOICE APPROVED GREEN and is safe for you and your family.  If you use our SUPER SRV in your septic system (one small scoop per month) and you avoid the use of harsh chemicals in your home, you will find that your septic system is free running and virtually odorless.  In addition, you will find that you will be able to go much further between pump outs, saving you both time and money in the long run. 

Many of our clients report that quite often when the pumper truck comes to their homes they actually find the tank is - both clean and empty! - Meaning they don't need to pump because the system is very happy and healthy!

Now for the value.  Many products are on the market at low and high price points per container.  A $10.00 or $20.00 price tag means very little if you can't measure it against its competition.  What you need to measure is how long a period the product will cover (in other words: if I use this product as directed, starting today, how long will it last before I need to buy again?).  Some products contain sachets or dissolvable packets - calculate out the amount of time it will take to use the contents of the container.  Then pick a period in time (our product will take 2.5 years to use the contents of the container) and figure out how much of each product you will need to cover the same time frame - NOW COMPARE THE COSTS.  In addition, you should consider the cost of pumping in the total cost of the product - if you are pumping every 3 years you have just added another $400.00+ to the cost of your product every 3 years. A product like ours may look expensive because the cost for the package is $50. but it can actually become one of your less expensive alternatives once you calculate out the total cost on an equal footing with the other products offered.

When you compare the results of how each of the products work, and how much each product costs over time we are sure that you'll see the overwhelming value of our EATOILS SUPER SRV.
