The bathroom and kitchen are two of the most difficult rooms in your home to keep clean. Designed primarily for function – they are used several times throughout every day. This constant activity leads to more dirt, moisture, grime and grease, not to mention the growth and spread of germs and other unhealthy bacteria. It’s no wonder these two rooms present the largest cleaning challenges in your home.

When generic cleaners alone just don't cut it .... professionals rely on specially formulated cleaners and tools to get the job done. Safety Foam is our strongest toilet bowl cleaner and also our number one selling product. It combines four acids to breakdown the hard water that builds up in your toilet bowl. The best way to apply it is by using our Johnny Mop to plunge the water level down below the hard water ring. Lowering the water level prevents dilution of the Safety Foam, allowing the full strength of the cleaner to work it’s best. If a difficult hard water ring is present, the use of a Pumice Stone or Shaws Pad will remove the ring and make cleaning the toilet much easier in the future. Make sure to use the Shaws Pad or Pumice Stone wet to avoid scratching

First of all, what is hard water? That nasty grit on the shower door and tile walls that just doesn’t ever seem to go away no matter what you do. Unless you consider it good exercise, there's no need to spend an afternoon scrubbing showers and tubs. Showers N Stuff has a blend of three acids and combines detergents that help breakdown hard water, soap scum and body oils fast. The best way to use it is to apply with our Foaming Nozzle. Start applying at the bottom of your shower and work up to avoid streaking. Once applied, use an Hour Glass Scrubber or our XL White Scrubber to work into the surface and spread evenly. Give the product 3-5 minutes of dwell time - this is crucial to allow the product time to work correctly. Give the shower one more scrub down and then just rinse completely. In the future: use a Shower Squeegee after every shower to cut you're bathroom cleaning time even more.

Stains, germs and grime in the kitchen and bath are unlike anywhere else in your home. Do you know the "germiest" place in your home? Not the toilet … it’s the kitchen sink. Just like you, bacteria love to eat and drink. There are plenty of food particles and moisture to keep them well fed. First, you need to get rid of the food particles and grime by using Creme Clean and your sink will shine. Follow with a disinfectant made to kill all of the cooties. Neutracide 64 is an excellent choice. It kills virtually all of the common germs found in the kitchen and bathroom. Why not bleach? Once you dilute bleach, it loses its ability to kill bacteria in about 24 hours. Undiluted, it is extremely toxic and can be very damaging in your home. Is that really something you want in your kitchen sink?
Odors can originate in the air, on surfaces, or floors. We recommend X-O Odor Neutralizer for any odor-neutralizing job. If you will need cleaning power in addition to deodorizing (such as carpet spots, pet stains, etc.), choose X-O Plus+ Odor Neutralizer plus Cleaner if you will need cleaning power in addition to deodorizing (such as carpet spots, pet stains, etc.)
In kitchen cleaning, start with large tasks and then move on to smaller tasks. For example, clear your kitchen working space by removing all clutter from countertops before attempting to wipe counters with a cleaner such as Heavy Duty Cleaner Portion Pacs or SoilMaster. A cleared counter space will take less time to wipe down then one with many items that you will have to lift and then wipe around. Wipe counters and cooking tops after every use to avoid build-up of tough stains. Purge outdated and turning food from the refrigerator and always take out kitchen trash to the outside receptacle each day to avoid unwanted critters and use X-O Odor Neutralizer to erase unpleasant smells in order to keep a clean house. Throw out sponges every month or use Machine Washable Microfiber Cloths, as wet ones harbor germs. Use separate Cleaning Gloves when cleaning food space areas like the kitchen and when completing bathroom cleaning to avoid contamination.
As they say, a clean bathroom is a healthy bathroom! But along with regular maintenance cleaning, make sure to keep your bathroom as light and dry as possible. Mold is one of the most common and malicious indoor contaminants we face. It can cause allergies and asthma, and can spread illness to our family and household pets. Mold thrives in dark, damp environments such as the bathtub corners, shower stalls, shower curtains, windowsills, garbage pails, and closets. To prevent the growth and spread of mold in your bathroom, it’s important to:
An exhaust fan that ventilates to the outside is a good line of attack against mold spores by keeping your bathroom dry and moisture free – especially during a shower or bath when humidity and moisture increase significantly
Open windows on low humidity days to help refresh household air and further dry out damp areas
When necessary, use cleaning products specifically formulated to get rid of existing mold
During regular maintenance, be sure to use cleaning products that don’t make the indoor air quality worse. Our Safety Foam Toilet Bowl Cleaner only requires one ounce of product to work effectively – grocery store brands recommend four times as much!
Instead of aerosol spray cleaners, use products with a foaming nozzle. It eliminates harmful VOC’s by dispensing a thick stream that goes where you want it and clings, not into the air you breathe.
Grocery store products simply can't compete with X-O® Odor Neutralizer. Most just cover up odors with masking scents. These artificial scents can cause odor fatigue in the nose so that you no longer distinguish the bad smell. Why else would they offer you a choice of fragrances when they're supposed to be removing odor? They are also considered to be unsafe for use on pets. X-O® removes the root cause of odor, the odor molecule. So your home smells fresh and wonderfully clean, the way nature intended. And, it does so without the potentially harmful chemicals that most store brands contain.
Simply put, X-O® breaks the odor's chemical bond. The process is instantaneous and completely permanent. Best of all, it is non toxic, with no synthetic chemicals.
X-O® is guaranteed to remove any odor COMPLETELY, even the very worst smells like Urine, Skunk, Diapers, Vomit, Decomposition and Pesticide fumes.
It doesn't matter what your problem odor is. Or whether its source is organic or man-made.
Once X-O® reaches the source, the odor will be removed. And, once treated, odors will not return because their very composition has been changed.
