The commonly known fact was news to me. My focus is primarily on what I make than what others make at this time in my career. It was of utmost importance when I was starting out in the early 2000's.
Where your focus should be


If you are. Butler customer and have purchased their chemical line and actually read their SDS then it is common knowledge

No different than going to Costco and buying Kirkland products. All made by someone else. Quite common in our industry. Just like having your leave behind spotters made by someone. You're not going to set up your own manufacturing company

which takes me back to my original point…

Chemical talk is so boring

Does anyone seriously believe that a better laundry detergent has been created in the last 20 years?

SDS don’t lie


these Johnny come lately types are putting more effort into fancy labels than formulations

I think I'm amazingly great at talking to carpet cleaners..
It's not always easy but when they tell me that they appreciate my time and all that I do, it makes it worth it.


except Marty.

I do appreciate what you do for our industry. Mark as well. Putting on a Mikey's Fest is no easy task and the benefits from attending one are incredible. I've seen companies go from almost nothing to multiple vans and employees almost overnight it seems.

I’ll expand on my post a little. I don’t mind giving a review on a good product. Most products are good. It’s the customer service that stinks. I think sometimes we hope to get better customer service for leaving a good review. But that’s false.

Nobody wants to hear, “ can you imagine talking to Carpet Cleaners all day“.
If you don’t wanna sell shit to Carpet Cleaners don’t sell shit Carpet Cleaners need.
Yeah. But can you imagine talking to carpet cleaners all day?

As a national distributor you would be amazed at how many pre-sprays we have to manage. We could cut it in half 2 times and still have too many choices which can overwhelm cleaners, sales and counter sales agents. I only wish we could limit our choices for better stock levels, more warehouse space, and making it simpler for everybody.
Amen

Mr. Lab-Coat does that to make them look fuller. Certainly not the Judson way.
It's still shrinking.i picked them up and ot felt different. Tighter and more dense. Probably still sucking the air out of the bottle.
It makes me concerned about using it. 20220706_125546.jpg

I used it today on a greasy restaurant. Ran it through the 175 and a pink pad. Worked well enough but I used a lot.
The first round it clumped up real bad. After that I changed technique added the powder after the hot water.

i extracted with just water after prescrubbing.

why?

I was afraid it would foam over or something but it didn't have much fiam at all. I liked that about it.
I was afraid of a strong fragrance too like what's it called.

You need to mix in a bucket first and stir well before putting it in your tank.

My disty has his private labeled. I have no idea what it really is. It works as well as any. Like I said, if I want to try something like Extreme, I order it.
