Hewlett Packard is a technology leader best known for high-performance printers but with their new eSmiles program, they are helping to support poor families through the Ronald McDonald House charity. HP will donate one dollar to the charity for every “eSmile” sent through their HP ePrint network. Here’s how it works:
Using the eSmiles interactive map, choose any Ronald McDonald House you want. Upload a picture, poem, or just an encouraging letter. Your eSmile will be printed right into the Ronald McDonald House of your choice and HP will donate a dollar to the cause. The Ronald McDonald House charity is focused on providing housing for families while their children receive medical care at a nearby hospital during a crisis. The emotional support of your eSmile and HP’s donation will lift the spirits of these families and help the Ronald McDonald House continue providing a home away from home for those in need.

One of my favorite cleaning supplies is the Mr Clean Magic Eraser. For those of you who are distrustful of magic, there’s no need to fear. The Magic Eraser is simply the best way to clean skuff marks or tough blemishes out of any hard surface.
A magic eraser is essentially a pad of melamine foam, which was originally used as pipe insulation and soundproofing material. Near the early 21st century was rediscovered as an abrasive cleaner. The tough foam acts as a micro-fine sandpaper, and wears away slowly during use. When moistened, the magic eraser easily removes the toughest marks from any wall- as if by magic! It can take care of markers, crayons, grease stains, and skuff marks with minimal effort. Mr Clean is a product of parent company Proctor & Gamble, one of the largest American consumer goods manufacturers and the best place to find P&G cleaning products is ReStockIt.com.

Every minute of the day that your local business’ bathroom is not clean is another chance to give a local, longtime customer the bad experience that will prevent him from coming back. Normally there is no way to tell whether you have lost customers on account of a dirty bathroom. In the same way that your business can earn a reputation around town, your business’ bathroom also gets a reputation that will stick, so to speak. In this blog we’ll review the most sanitary bathroom equipment and then create a plan to keep that restroom clean.
The Right Public Restroom Equipment
Walk into your restroom and try this exercise; can you wash your hands, dry, and leave the bathroom without making contact with any surface whatsoever? A bathroom that is fitted with the right gear can accommodate this move. First, use a wall-mounted touchless soap dispenser. Hygiene leader Gojo has dispensers that use factory-sealed soap refills. These are superior because they are guaranteed to be sanitary. Studies have shown that approximately 25% of open bulk soap dispensers in public restrooms contain unsafe levels of bacteria.
Next you’ll need a touchless paper towel dispenser by the sink. Do not use an air dryer, since these can become dusty and blow bacteria onto your customers’ hands. A step-on trash can should be located right underneath the paper towel dispenser near the faucet. This way you can use a paper towel to turn the faucet off and throw it away, all without touching anything. You should also provide a small wastebasket near the door for those customers who like to open the door with a paper towel, so that they don’t have to make a prayer shot from half-court to throw it away. In the end it will create less work for you. Try this chrome wastebasket from Safco. Add a metered odor control system and toilet seat covers, and you should have all the basics covered for a sanitary public restroom.
Creating a Routine Cleaning Schedule
An hourly cleaning schedule is not to be used as a replacement for the responsibility of employees to “clean as they go”, to fix a problem when they find it. The purpose is to standardize the cleaning process for uniformity and continuous cleaning throughout the day. You will need to customize your schedule based on the needs of your particular business, but all routine cleaning schedules should address the following concerns in writing:
- What is to be cleaned
- When it is to be cleaned
- How it is to be cleaned
- Precautions to take
- Who is scheduled to clean
- Where cleaning materials are located
ReStockIt.com is a great place to find all the restroom cleaning supplies you will need. You can save money in all sorts of ways – by buying everything in one place, buying cleaning supplies in bulk, and by joining our ReStocker program, which lets you schedule automatic shipments and saves you 10% on all your purchases just for being a member.
For everyday occasions, a glass of wine with dinner can get by in a plastic tumbler or a coffee mug, but if you want to bring out the true flavor of wine you’re going to need some proper glassware. That’s right, the taste of wine changes depending on the glass that it’s in. Let’s go over some common questions regarding wine and the appropriate glass.
Why are wine glasses so big when the servings are so small?
We’re right there with you, buddy. But the reason wine is served in 12 to 24 ounce glasses is so that it can breathe. By swirling your glass, the aromas of the wine are freed up. Glasses for red wine should be at least 12 ounces, and white wine glasses should be between 10 to 12.
The brandy snifter helps improve the flavor of aged brown spirits by allowing the liquor to evaporate from it’s wide surface area, while allowing your hand to warm the liquid, making it more pungent.
Champagne flutes are designed to prevent the hand from warming the drink, and the elongated shape allows the glass to retain more of the carbonation.
A sherry glass is appropriate for liqeuers and dessert wines like port, due to its smaller size.
We recommend Libbey for quality glassware due to their reputation for manufacturing affordable flawless stemware in all the shapes and sizes you will need for entertaining guests.
The best gift you can give your loved one for Valentine’s Day is a homemade one that shows your thoughtfulness. It also doesn’t hurt to get your squeeze hiked up on sugar if you’ve been thinking of asking her to take the relationship to the next level. This delicious recipe should do the trick. You will need:
- Three medium bowls
- One large bowl
- One ceramic or glass baking dish
- One double-boiler
- A spatula
- A measuring cup and measuring spoons
- An egg whisker
- Two boxes of ladyfinger cookies
- Eight large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup of sugar (two cups if you’re thinking of proposing today)

- One pine of heavy cream
- Six fresh raspberries
- Four tablespoons of Cocoa powder
- Two cups espresso coffee
- Two tablespoons of sugar
- One cup Marsala wine
- One tablespoon Kahlua
- One tablespoon Godiva Mocha chocolate
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 8 egg yolks and ½ cup of caster sugar
3. Prepare a cold water bath in the sink in preparation for step 4
4. Place the egg mixture on double boiler and steam for 9-10 minutes, and stir frequently. Make sure the eggs do not cook. (I do not have a double boiler, so I placed a plate on top of pan of boiling water)
5. Place plate into the cold water bath to stop the cooking and continue to stir occasionally
6. In a medium bowl, whip heavy cream using electric mixer to peak stiffness
7. In a large bowl, scoop out and soften the mascarpone cheese by using a spatula and folding it in a few times, then combine the egg yolk mixture until everything is well incorporated.
8. Then, combine the whipped cream to the egg mixture.
9. Dip the lady fingers into the coffee mixture and place into dish. Repeat this until you have created the first layer.
10. Add a generous layer of the cream mixture.
11. Sift coca powder on top.
12. Arrange raspberry (you can omit this or add other fruits like blueberries and/or strawberries)
13. Repeat steps 9-11 to make your second layer.
14. Place in refrigerator covered for 3-4 hours, so all the ingredients settle in together.
15. Last but not least, make your favorite cup of hot coco, coffee, or tea and ENJOY!
