No antibacterial wipes here. I use essential oils to disinfect surfaces. That's the one thing I can't live without.

What window spray do you use? And you can use it on other surfaces?

Would love to have an all-purpose spray that makes everything shine!!!

Essential oils. All kinds. It's the essence of a plant.

Supprox !!! without a doubt we could not live without it It is a hydrogen perxoide/ citrus cleaner that we get from one of our vendors and it cleans just about everything! It is sold in concentrated form and it costs out to pennies per bottle to use

My next most important tools would be our vacuums, without them we would be lost. I believe in investing in quality vacuums and taking good care of them.

Vacuums are key to the business. Good ones cut time=money.


But I have never heard of Supprox, Theresa. I am all into the H2o2 and citrus cleaners. Been here for a while but haven't seen any posts on that product. Where do I find info for it?

Supprox is a product made by Hillyard, it is very similar to H2O2 only we get it for cheaper through the purchasing alliance

I agree 100% on the vacuums. We have gone through two cheapies in the last few months so today we went and bought a good commercial one. We were working today and one of our old ones over heated and quit working! We were really far out in the country and it would not have been convenient to go back and get another one. Luckily after it sat for a while it started back up but had it not we would have been in big trouble. You can't beat a quality, reliable vacuum.

Here is a site you might want to look at:

Click on the oil for a description. You can order from there.

CCleaner is the number-one tool for cleaning your Windows PC.There are more expensive vacuums out there that may do a better job in terms of suction, but I find vacuums like TriStar.It protects your privacy online and makes your computer faster and more secure.

It is difficult to find any science on using essential oils but care should be taken before using "All kinds"
Some may be dangerous to animals and people. Some are.
Pine oil, one of the big names, is not that effective against the growth of microorganisms like Staph, Strep, Klebs and other.

If you dilute then with water remember, they are oil, and will not form an emulsion. They will separate and that first squirt from a bottle will probably be most of the oil.

Most smell good but remember that at the far extreme, you get an essential oil on you when you brush past a poison oak bush.

I absolutely agree! That's why I'm always careful with my choice

HUH? A little off topic?

We bought a new vacuum cleaner recently too. I am a bit obsessed with it because it is really powerful and I cannot imagine the housekeeping without it. So that is the best cleaning tool for me. Of course, it is not effective for stains but... I would certainly love to hear what products do you use for your washing machine for white clothes. This isn't off topic, is it?

Best Regards,
Cheryl Parker
