There are so many different kinds of glass cleaners and I have tried quite a few; but Gel Gloss came out with a brand new one I believe works the best. One reason is that you can clean windows that are in direct sunlight and Gel Gloss guarantees No Streaks. I prefer the 19 oz. spray can because it is so easy to use. Gel Gloss made the first product that will clean fiberglass, acrylic, formica, and cultured marble. It will also seal it while leaving a shine. Fiberglass, acrylic, formica, and cultured marble all have a clear gel coat to protect their finish and most cleaners are too abrasive and will eat away at the clear gel coat. Both products will help make your job easier when it comes to the care of your Fiberglass, acrylic, formica, and cultured marble. This cleaner and polish will protect the surface so it stays shiny longer.
Question: What product would you suggest to use on faded front doors to make them look like new without sanding or stripping?
Answer:Sun Wax’s Sun Shield will work great as long as it is a wooden door. You will just apply it with a soft rag and it will keep your door looking great. No need for sanding or stripping.
Question: What is the best caulking available to use on a square tile shower so that it doesn’t mildew?
Answer: The product to use would be a product called (Sealant) Mildew Free Caulking. This is a 7 year caulking and it is the one that I use. First, you will need to clean the surface area with a hand held razor blade and just make sure to get all of the old caulking out. Once you have done this you can apply the Mildew Free Caulking. Another great thing about this product is that you can take your finger and wet it with liquid soap and slide your finger across the caulking to give it a smooth professional looking finish. You would not be able to do that with a silicone caulking it would just stick to your finger.
Question: I have areas of my wall paper that has come unglued is there a product that I can use that would be easy to use?
Answer: The product you will need is called Sure Grip. This product is so easy to use you will be shocked. You just need to apply this to to the areas that have come unglued, smooth flat and hold for about 10 seconds, and wipe off any excess that you might have with a damp cloth.
Question: What can we use to clean mineral deposits off of our shower tile? They use to be so beautiful and now they are a dingy yellow?
Answer: The perfect product for you would be Delete Germ. It is also great for cleaning the entire shower or the toilet. Just make sure that once you apply this product to glass to immediately rinse it right off. For the tiles, I want you to apply the product, leave it for a few minutes, and then scrub it with a stiff brush and rinse.
Question: I am having a terrible time of getting rid of pantry and closet moths. Anything that you would recommend?
Answer: The best product I know of to get rid of Moths in the closet or pantry would be a product called the Pantry Pest Trap made by Safer. This is specifically for moths and has brought me much success in getting rid of those pesky moths that tend to stick around.
Question: I am really in need of something that will really clean grout. I have tried all the local hardware store’s solutions, friend recommendations, and home remedies and nothing has worked. Please let me know what I can use?
Answer: When you are cleaning colored grout you will need a cleaner that has no bleach in it. Tech’s Grout Cleaner for Floors is a great cleaner for all colors of grout. It comes with a little brush to help you get those stains out and is just so easy to use. Another great thing is that this product has no harsh chemicals so there is no need for gloves and you wont have any fumes. I recommend with all products that you test in a small inconspicuous spot first to see how it does. But you will just spray the product on, scrub it with a stiff brush, and then mop/wipe away to get rid of the excess cleaner.
