New Exfoliate For Your Hands & Feet

March 3, 2010

 

Exfoliates can be an expensive item to purchase. They also only serve one purpose and that is to exfoliate. In recent weeks, we have found that Odor-Z-Way will act as an exfoliate. Not only does the product act as an efoliate but it also will remove odors and stains from your hands. So, in some cases, you are actually solving three problems at one time by using Odor-Z-Way.

Let’s take a real life experience of using Odor-Z-Way as an exfoliate. We had a young lady come to us one day and was asking about removing carpenter’s wood stain out of her hands. She told us earlier that day that she had been staining some wood for a mantle above her fire place. We told her that Odor-Z-Way would work great to remove the stain from her hands. So, we took her over to the sink and had her rinse her hands with some water. We then had her add a squirt of liquid soap into the palm of her hand followed by adding a palm full of Odor-Z-Way over the soap. At this point, she lathered up her hands as one would normally do when washing their hands. Last of all, she rinsed her hands off in the sink. After drying her hands, she found that the stain was completely removed from her skin, the odor from the stain was gone, and her hands felt very soft and smooth. The Odor-Z-Way actually polished her skin and brought the natural oils up out of her skin making them so soft and smooth.

After stumbling upon this discovery, we have found that Odor-Z-Way is a far cheaper alternative to purchasing exfoliates for your hands and feet.  Not only can you use Odor-Z-Way for exfoliating, but you can also use Odor-Z-Way for odor and stain removal out of your carpet, clothing, skin, cement, pets, etc.  What other product out on the market gives you the capability of doing all of these uses in one?  Odor-Z-Way gives you the best value for your dollar with all of the uses that this product is capable of.

Litter Box Odors Removal

March 2, 2010

Whether you have a litter box for your cat or your dog, you know how bad the litter box can get to smelling.  I have two cats that use one litter box that I clean out once a day and it smells horribly at times.  I’ve tried several different methods and several products to help keep the smell down until the next time that I wash the litter box out and change the litter but couldn’t find much that worked other than Odor-Z-Way.

I have found that by using Odor-Z-Way to help keep the litter odors down works excellent.  I will just sprinkle a dusting of Odor-Z-Way across the top of the litter until it looks like there is a white blanket over the litter.  I then take my scooper and mix the Odor-Z-Way into my litter.  Since I have two cats using the litter box, this works for two to three days until the odor starts coming back at which point I add more Odor-Z-Way.

The benefits that I have found by using Odor-Z-Way in the litter box are that the product is completely safe for my cats.  The product is fine for them to scratch around in, walk on, etc.  The biggest benefit though, is that the Odor-Z-Way removes the ammonia which is what is causing the odor.  The ammonia is dangerous to the pet’s health, so, it is nice using a product that absorbs the ammonia into its crystal structure helping to reduce health risks.

I know that Odor-Z-Way will not completely cure the odors coming from your pet’s litter box, but the product will greatly reduce the odors and help reduce to possible health risks that can be a result from ammonia.

Waste or Cleanup? Which would you choose?

February 26, 2010

We all know that the economy is not a very ideal place for the consumer all the way up to the manufacturer these days.  So, everyone that I know as well as everyone that you know are probably trying to find ways to cut back on costs.  In recent years our economy has been a throw away society.  By this, I mean that we buy something and if it gets a tear, a stain, anything, we throw it away.  This is not the case anymore.  We all must find ways to cut back on costs. 

The example I personally have is with the carpet in my home.  I had friends over for a small party and a couple of them got out of control and spilled some red wine on my carpet.  Of course, I did not find the spills until the next morning.  So, luckily I have a product called Odor-Z-Way that I use to get almost any stain out of my carpet as well as odors.  I dampened the stain, put the Odor-Z-Way over the stain, and rubbed the Odor-Z-Way into the stain with my foot.  I then let the stain dry and vacuumed up the area as the directions said to do.  Guess what?  The stain was completely gone.  My point to this entire story is that I could have easily said that I didn’t want to mess with it and called the carpet cleaner up to come clean my carpets, or, if my pockets were deep enough, I could have ripped my carpet completely up and replaced it.  Either way I was going to spend way more money that what I did to clean one spot.  I think I spent $10.00, put minimal effort into cleaning the spot, and saved my carpet and money.  I have found many other uses that this product has saved me money on as well, but this was my most expensive savings story that I could possibly have had. 

This is why I ask the question waste or cleanup?  Would you rather spend $10.00 to save your carpet, clothing, etc., or spend $50, $100, $1,000, $5,000 to replace your carpet, shirt, etc.  I leave it to you to decide what you would do.

Extinguish Gasoline Fire!!

February 26, 2010

I recently was playing around with the Auto Odor-Z-Way and found out that this product would put out gas fires!  It is the craziest thing ever.  I had a little gas spill on our shop floor when I was doing some work on our buggy.  A buddy of mine decided that he wanted to have a cigarette and used a match to light his cigarette with.  He then threw the match, that was still on fire, on the ground right into a small puddle of gas.   Of course, the gas started on fire.  So out of instinct, I grabbed the Odor-Z-Way that was sitting next to us on the bench.  I always leave the Auto Odor-Z-Way on my bench so I can absorb oil off of my floor, like a floor dry would.  Anyway, I sprinkled the Odor-Z-Way over the fire.  Amazingly, the product put the fire out with no problem.  I thought this was kind of weird, so I tried doing this in a controlled experiment.  It worked again!  While the Odor-Z-Way was still on the gas spill, I tried to light the spot back on fire again.  It would only spark a little for a second but would not light back up.  I came to the conclusion that the Odor-Z-Way absorbed the gas vapors not allowing the gasoline to start back on fire.  I will definately keep this in mind to use Odor-Z-Way the next time I am around a gas fire.

How Odor-Z-Way (man-made zeolite) was started

February 26, 2010

Odor-Z-Way was actually created from the water conditioning industry.  After figuring out a variety of uses in water conditioning it was found that a larger size of the same crystal could be used as a superior odor and stain removal product.  I have listed the short story below about how Odor-Z-Way was origionally invented in the water conditioning industry.

In 1925 Emmett Culligan, with help from Fred Lindsay, formulated the process to produce synthetic zeolites. Together, they started the Northwestern Chemical Company. Fred’s brother, Lynn Lindsay, was one of the company’s salesmen, who later started the successful water softener company bearing his name.

In the late 30s and early 40s, there were two zeolite plants: one in San Bernardino, CA, and the other in Yuma AR. By the late 40s, the company had produced a high-capacity zeolite with capacity of 20K grains – doubling capacity of domestic water softeners.

That accomplishment was soon overshadowed by the development of synthetic – or plastic – resins in the early 50’s providing even higher capacities of 30K grains per cu ft. With increased competition from plastic resin manufacturers, Culligan closed the Yuma zeolite plant.
 
 Zeolites are first cured outdoors in large beds before refining and processing. Here, the mild weather and prevalent sunshine of the Kansas City region provides ideal conditions.

The remaining zeolite facility in San Bernardino was later purchased in 1985 by Glenn Gruett, the owner and founder of Water-Right, Inc., a water softener manufacturing firm based in Appleton, Wisconsin. Water-Right had previously used Culligan’s zeolites extensively and successfully in a majority of the softeners they manufactured. They were also one of the largest customers of zeolite at the time.
 
With the purchase of all rights, equipment and technology, Gruett moved the entire operation to Phillipsburg, Kansas, under the corporate name of Mineral-Right, Inc. This operation became the first modern synthetic zeolite plant in the country. Through carefully controlled manufacturing, zeolites are now produced in several different grades, each possessing different water conditioning characteristics.
 
 
The Northwestern Chemical Company closed during the Great Depression. Emmett Culligan pushed onward, starting the Culligan Zeolite Company in 1936 in Northbrook, Illinois. The zeolites manufactured through his operation had a capacity of 10,000 grains per cu ft – two times better than processed greensand. This accomplishment essentially created the modern water softening industry we have today.
