Paint Remover and Paint Stripper, Non Toxic, No Methylene Chloride

by Barbara 17. July 2012 14:02

Question about Natural Soy Products Paint Remover.

Question: "I am looking for a paint stripper or paint remover for removing latex, oil-based and lead-based paint including silver and black spray paint. I prefer a paint stripper that does not contain methylene chloride. Also I want a versatile product that can be used on wood, metal, concrete, glass, aluminum siding, tile, spray equipment, clothing, carpeting, concrete, brick, brushes and furniture. Does SoyClean (Natural Soy Products )paint remover meet my needs? I'd like to purchase it in at least one gallon containers. Thanks. Tom."


Answer:  Natural Soy Products Paint Remover and Stripper is a natural, soy-based, non-toxic product that rinses away with water. Natural Soy Products Paint Stripper is made from 100% all natural ingredients, so it contains no hazardous ingredients. Because Natural Soy Products stripper is non-toxic, paint removal may take a bit longer. The advantages though are that you will have no exposure to cancer causing substances like methylene chloride, also called dichloromethane. That is a volatile, colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Methylene chloride is used in various industrial processes, in many different industries including paint stripping, pharmaceutical manufacturing, paint remover manufacturing, and metal cleaning and degreasing. The most common means of exposure to methylene chloride is inhalation and skin exposure. OSHA considers methylene chloride to be a potential occupational carcinogen.. According to the US Dept of Labor, methylene chloride, also called dichloromethane, is a volatile, colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Methylene chloride is used in various industrial processes, in many different industries including paint stripping, pharmaceutical manufacturing, paint remover manufacturing, and metal cleaning and degreasing. The most common means of exposure to methylene chloride is inhalation and skin exposure. OSHA considers methylene chloride to be a potential occupational carcinogen.

Paint Stripper Instructions: 

    Shake product for at least one minute.
    Apply liberally to surface. Avoid using on plastic or vinyl.
    Allow product time to work.   The longer you let it set, the less work you have to do to remove the paint.   If there are several layers of paint, or if the paint has been there for a very long time, we recommend letting the product soak over night. This Paint Stripper will penetrate multiple layers of paint for several hours, without needing to be reapplied. That's the beauty of the soybean oil! It won't evaporate like toxic strippers.
    Test a small area to see if the paint is softened and ready to be removed. Rinse surface clean with water. Neutralize surface with mild dish soap, like Dawn for example.

How does the Soy Clean Paint Stripper Work?

The soybean oil gives the Paint Stripper an Extra long wet time. So while, it isn’t designed to work immediately, it is VERY effective when it is allowed time to work. The longer you let it set, the less scrubbing you will have to do. With only one application, you will be able to remove multiple layers of paint. SoyClean Graffiti Remover and Adhesive and Mastic Remover works the same way – even when removing tough carpet glue or tile mastic!

SoyClean Paint Stripping Product Features:

    Removes paint overspray, wood stains, water based sealers, linseed oils, latex stains, lacquer overspray, and stencil paints
    No caustic alkalis to darken wood and raise grain or burn skin and eyes.
    Soy-based cleaner
    Environmentally friendly
    One gallon covers about 200 sq. feet.
    Non-Toxic
    Biodegradable
    High flash point
    Contains no cancer-causing methylene chloride (DCM)
    Made in Iowa, USA.

SoyClean soy based paint stripper comes in 22 ounce refillable spray bottles, one gallon containers or 5 gallon containers or 55 gallon drums. Please contact us for pricing and delivery costs on the larger sized containers.

by Barbara 26. April 2012 10:35

Question about replacing CCI Controls Propane Gas Alarms and Propane Alarms with Tank Valve Shut-Offs with Comparable Safe-T-Alert models.

Q: "My CCI propane alarm in my RV has failed. What unit is available as a replacement since CCI Controls is not in business?" Thanks. Ed

Answer: Below is a chart. The entire unit must be replaced if your CCI Controls unit has an automatic gas valve shut off. Safe-T-Alert replacements for that unit will not work with the CCI valve. Note: new standards require that propane alarms shut down 5 years after installed to power. Shelf life is 10 years if not used.

Window Wedges Made in USA Add Window Safety to Military and Public Housing

by Barbara 27. May 2011 05:33

Question about the Window Wedge Adjustable Velcro Window Stop,144/CS window stop product for slider windows in military housing.

Q: "Our company supplies military installations around the world with safety products. We've been asked to quote on window stops for slider windows for military housing in Asia. Will the Window Wedge work for slider windows? We don't want to install window guards. Thanks. Valerie."

Answer: The Window Wedge fits on the window frame, not in the tracks. Make certain that the window frames are wide enough as Window Wedge® uses one 8 inch velcro strip to which you velcro the 4 inch wedge portion. This product is made in the USA. We asked you to have your customer measure the windows and they are 3/4 inch wide. We recommend that you have two wedges i.e. one package installed on each window. That is because a child pulling on a slider could possibly pull the unit out of the track.

Each window wedge loop strip is 8 inches long and 3/4 inches wide.The actual wedge section is 3.25 inches long.To open the window greater than four inches for cleaning, remove the wedge from the velcro loop portion of the window stopper.

To Install Window Wedge Window Stoppers On a Slider Window:

    Close window. Clean window frame surface before application of loop strip.
    Peel off backing of 8 inch loop strip and place in center of upper horizontal window frame (not on the glass)
    Attach the Window Wedge® to the loop strip with the
    two tines facing the adjacent window section.
    Slide window open until contact is made with the Window Wedge®
    Attach the second Window Wedge® unit to the bottom part of the
    Adjust the position of the Window Wedge® so that the
    window opening is 4 inches or less.
    Note: For maximum child safety, maximum window opening should not exceed 4 inches.

To Install Window Wedge Window Stoppers On a Double Hung or Single Hung Window:

    Close the window
    Clean the surface of the window trim prior to application. Do not attach to glass itself.
    Peel off the backing from the 8 inch loop strip and place in the center of the upper window frame for a double hung or single hung window.
    Attach the Window Wedge® to the loop strip.
    Attach the second window wedge on the other side at the same height.
    Open the window until it is stopped by the window wedge.
    Note: For maximum child safety, maximum window opening should not exceed 4 inches.

Safe Home does offer bulk pricing on this product. Please contact us directly if you need over 144 packages.

Thanks for your question and your purchase!

Sincerely, Barbara

 

Amcells WHS-800 Electronic Shipping Scale for Larger Items or Wheelchair Scale MADE IN USA

by Barbara 25. March 2011 08:00

Question about portable shipping scales with TARE for larger heavier items.

Q: "We own a business that ships larger packages that are difficult to put on a standard sized shipping scale. Some products are so heavy that we load them onto dollys. Is there an American made scale with a TARE function and a large platform so we can wheel the product/box onto the platform without removing it from the dolly." Thanks. Tom

Answer: What you need to purchase is the AmCells Wheelchair, Bariatric and Shipping Scale Folds. You can easily move the dolly onto the platform and push it off the other side when your weighing is completed. Ramped sides make this easy. The weight limit is 800 lbs with accuracy of 0.2 lbs. Amcells scales are known for reliability both in operation and in calibration. Buy American is my advice. 

The Amcells WHS-800 has these features:

  • Aluminum diamond polished deck with ramped sides
  • Over-sized platform: 40 inches by 30 inches
  • Rail Mounted easy-to-read digital display with printer interface
  • Rail height for digital display: 39 inches. Note this rail assists in the portability of the scale. It is NOT as a stability grip
  • Weight capacity: 800 lbs (360 kg)
  • Accuracy: graduation of 0.2 lbs (0.1 kg)
  • Pounds to kilograms conversion
  • Functions: ON/OFF, HOLD, ZERO, and PRINT buttons.
  • Power: AC adapter (included)
  • Print function allows printing to ticket printers, slip printers
  • Display Indicator:s elevated by a sturdy bar for easy access and convenience.
  • Materials: high quality aluminum alloy steel and stainless steel.
  • Physical Dimensions of Scale: Folded 3/4 inches High x 40 Inches Wide by 38 inches long.
  • Calibration: factory calibrated prior to shipment.
  • AmCells uses high quality Made in USA load cells that maintain scale accuracy over time.
  • 1 Year Warranty: The manufacturer warrants that this product is free from defects in material and workmanship. Repair or replacement will be issued for any product which is found defective under the terms of this warranty. Safe Home assists with warranty issues within 30 days of sale.

With the TARE function, you can get an accurate weight for your shipment that is oversized. If you use UPS, you can enter both the weight and the box dimensions manually into the UPS program and get accurate shipping costs.

When you are done with shipping, you can fold the scale and store it or leave it in place for the next business day. The scale is easily moved in warehouse situations since it folds and rolls on two tough urethane wheels.

We have other Amcells, Seca, Healthometer, Befour, etc. scales. However, none of these offer the same options as the Amcells WHS-800.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara

 

 

Washable Fleece Baby Blankets and Other Baby Products from SnuggleWool

by Barbara 30. October 2010 08:33

Question about the SnuggleWool 27x35 Baby Wool Blanket, Organic Back and the SnuggleWool Wool Baby Blanket, 27x36, Cotton Flannel Bk

Question: "What is the difference between these two wool baby blankets? I thought all wool blankets had to be washed by hand or dry-cleaned. Your website says these are machine waahable and line dry. Don't they shrink a lot? I am look for baby gift ideas for my best friend. Thanks. Robin."

Answer: The main difference is the backing. The first baby blanket has an organic flannel cotton backing and the second uses a cotton flannel for the backing that is not organic.

Both blankets are made from Merino lambs wool from Australia or New Zealand. The wool fibers are sliver-knit into a polyester backing. That means the fabric is sturdy yet machine washable. Of course, you want to use cool water and either a detergent made for wool or a mild detergent.

Merino wool has been proven to soothe children with a soft swaddling effect, thus reducing stress and restless movement.

The 27 by 35-36 inch size of lambs wool blanket is a favorite of mom's with new babies. My daughter-in-law  used this infant blanket to cover my grandson's when he fell asleep in his infant seat. She'd tuck it around him. It was also a great overwrap when taking him out on a cold Minneapolis day from the house to the car or from the car into a store when the wind was blowing hard. Or if he fell asleep when on the floor, she would cover him or move him onto the blanket and flip the side over him.  This is also a good size for a bassinet or cradle.

Snuggle Wool blankets are perfect for snuggling your child and can make a comforting play mat. A major advantage is that these wool blankets keep baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Wool absorbs perspiration and  is naturally disinfecting, too.

The blankets come in several sizes including crib blanket sizes. We also have other sizes of baby blankets for cribs, changing table covers, co sleeper pads , baby buntings and infant car seat covers. All make great baby gifts. Snugglewool products are made in the USA, too.

I hope this helped answer your questions.

Thanks.

Sincerely, Barbara

Help! My Attic is Full of Raccoons!

by Barbara 30. July 2008 16:37

Question about the Product Code: EP-MB100K PROFESSIONAL Evictor Strobe Light Squirrel Rat Repeller

Q:"I have had more than six raccoons in my attic since January. They lined up in front of my window so I could count them. How nice! I can't close the opening under the roofline because I can hear babies squealing in the walls and the Exterminating Co. we hired only trapped one and then gave up. I need another method. WILL A STROBE LIGHT REALLY WORK? And how do I get it into the attic without being attacked? As you can see, I really need HELP.. Please be honest as we've already thrown out money for the Exterminating / Trapping company. Thanks, Esther"

Answer: For raccoons, the Professional Evictor is the better choice of the two Evictor strobe units as it will cover about 1600 square feet of open attic and is 6 times stronger in light intensity than the home unit. If your attic is an irregular shape, you may need two or more of these lights.

NOTE: Currently distribution of the Evictor products to Safe Home ceased due to a law suit between the original partners. (2013). Replacement stobe lights are available through Safe Home for both sizes of Evictor strobe fixtures.

The first challenge is getting an installer and the units into the attic! Raccoons are essentially nocturnal animals but occasionally venture out in the daytime particularly toward evening. So the best time to install the Evictor is during daylight hours. Of course, attics tend to be dark even in the daytime so the raccoons may be moving about during day time. So first you need to get the raccoons out of the area where you plan to install the light.

Today I received this email from Evictor's sales rep. Here is his suggestion:

" For this situation, your customer needs at least 3 of the professional Evictor lights. We do not know how long the raccoons have inhabited the house. The large Evictor lights work well to expel raccoons. With that many raccoons and if they have babies, entering the attic is dangerous unless you are a trained professional exterminator/ Evictor installer as the raccoons are likely to attack.

Not only must the lights be installed but the access holes must be closed and traps set on the outside to catch the raccoons as they leave the premises. The activity in the walls is only temporary as they are exploring their current residence.

If the homeowner plans the installation himself, it would be best for two people to handle the installation. First, make and continue making a lot of noise before entering the attic. Take with you a radio on maximum volume tuned to a talk show. Leave the radio on and bang on a pan or make similar noise while you set the lights and leave as quickly as possible." Mike.

This was my original answer:

"A sonic animal repeller that can be set to be on continuously is the first step. Get a long extension cord, plug in a Yardgard set to the small animal setting, turn the volume to the loudest setting, push the attic access open and place the device on the nearest rafter. The noise should encourage the raccoons to hide or vacate the attic especially if you also have a way to turn on an attic light.

After a few hours, it should be safe to install the Evictor or Evictors if yours is an attic that has an irregular shape. If you have an electrical outlet in the attic, you can quickly install the unit by hanging it onto a rafter and plugging the cord into a timer. Or if the raccoons have temporarily abandoned the area, have the units wired so there is a switch handy to the access so you can turn it off before entering the attic to clean up after the raccoons.

Once the raccoons are gone, do remove overhanging tree limbs and other accesses to your roof and close off the entrance points. "

The only good news is that the damage to your house is probably covered by insurance. At least when this scenario happened to a friend who was then living in Milwaukee, her insurance company paid to have all her upstairs ceilings replaced as the damage was not done rodents.

Thanks for your question and good luck!

Sincerely,
Barbara

Where Can You Use a Neck Support Cushion?

by Barbara 9. July 2007 08:40

Q: "Will the CA-232 Auto Neck Support Cushion with Headrest Strap work on an office chair?"

Answer: You can use this neck cushion with any chair just by placing it behind your head. However, it works best when you use the support strap to keep it in place.
Customer Response: "Thank you for your very prompt reply. Now I shall go ahead and order the item."

Note: Since this was answered, we've added a memory foam neck support pillow covered in navy or tan velour with a two piece velcro connected adjustable headrest strap. This is great for those with neck problems who cannot fit their orthopedic pillow into their suitcase. Use this under your neck for support while you travel. The cushion our customer refers to is a white fleece polyester filled neck pillow. I personally travel with the tan memory foam cushion and a brightly colored pillow case. I used the neck support pillow directly under my neck when I sleep with my head resting on whatever thin (usually) pillow the cruise ship or motel provides me. The pillow also pads my C-PAP machine in my carry on bag

Thanks for the question.


Sincerely, Barbara
