The StoneClean Blog

My experience with the StoneClean Concentrates started several years ago in Iowa. I had started a marble cleaning business in Avon Colorado in 1985.  After moving back to my home town in Sac City, Iowa I continued my work. 

I got a job at one of the local banks in town to freshen up their marble lobby. Before that job I was sent a sample of a special StoneHardener to try. It was called then StoneHardener 2 Polish. Wow did it pop up the Shine on this hard green limestone floor!  The cleanser I provided was from Germany.  A special ” stone soap” that was suppose to be great. It was not! Bank presidents wife told me it was like just moving dirt around and did not clean well! 

I decided to call the company who had sent me the sample and they proceeded to send my a sample of StoneClean “60” and the rest is history as the saying goes. It far out performed any I had ever used and continues to out perform all the rest on the market today! 

I hope to share some of my successes and observation in using the 4 special cleaners that make up the StoneClean Concentrates. Line of Cleansers from the Richard James Specialty Chemicals Corp.

Himalayan Natural Shilajit

Please take the time to research and obtain this unique health “food” Shilajit! The link below has lots of good information and I believe the best quality and pricing.

On my website I only have one other health related product AquaLiv water filter. My main focus of course are the StoneClean™ Concentrates, yet I feel these two items deserve attention on my site. This is an affiliate link from their web site yet you will pay no more than if you ordered directly from their site yourself. I am impressed with this product and feel you will be as well! Contains fullerenes aka Carbon60 -C60 and a host of fulvic minerals that will recharge your body with mineral.

Thank you

Pure Himalayan Shilajit

We are all worthy of leading a healthy life!

It would be awesome if we could be healthy by just taking supplements. Sadly, it’s not that simple! Our immune system isn’t aware of what we consume (whether good or bad); instead it simply protects us from anything that seems unnatural. This makes the task of delivery more important than the supplement itself. The good news is that leading a healthy life can be as easy as tapping into ancient nutrients with the help of Shilajit! The particular combination of Plant Derived Minerals bound to Humic and Fulvic Acids found in Shilajit is readily accepted and absorbed by any organism on Earth as it’s been here since life first began.

The major organic part made from the ancient plants remains. Fulvic Acid is one of many valuable components including Folic and Humic acids plus some Vitamins. Shilajit is also rich in plenty of amino acids and other beneficial organic compounds that promote strength, endurance and vitality.

We are trying to preserve its original molecular structure as much as possible. We are not using intensive heat or exposing it to the environment for a long term drying process. Our Shilajit is safe and very potent. When high heat interacts with an organic substance for a prolonged time, it destroys the bonds that give all of its inherent enzymes, salts and proteins their structure. If the structure is destroyed, all these innate ingredients lose their biological functions and benefits. We take pride in knowing that our carefully treated Shilajit contains a wholesome suite of fully preserved nutrients!

How to use

Follow our simple graphic guideline on How to Use Shilajit. You will not only learn about daily dosage, but also about certain factors you need to avoid.

How does it work?

Shilajit is a complex organic Trace Minerals and Fulvic Acid substance. If you’re like many others, who are curious to know how it works, here are some articles on Shilajit Benefits that will enlighten you.

Is it safe?

Having been tested by a third party U.S.-based laboratory for Heavy Metals and also packed in a sterile environment, our products are undoubtedly of exceptionally high quality. Each jar is backed by a 60-day money back guarantee.

Organic trace mineral complex, valuable minerals and metals

Natural source of Fulvic Acid, not from concentrate

Powerful electrolyte that serves to balance the life of cell

Strong Adaptogen that decreases sensitivity to stress

Why Should I Buy Shilajit?

Everything in nature is connected and designed to keep all of life balanced. However, it is best to consume naturally made, unprocessed products which have established the best compatibility with our bodies through the course of our evolution. Natural sources of nutrition tend to be better than expensive Vitamin tablets, as they contain a whole host of other ingredients, such as trace minerals, that help the body to fulfil its needs. Our cells grow weak when we are deprived of essential nutrition, paving the way for disease and many other health problems. If you can’t get enough minerals through your regular diet, then it’s time to try shilajit.

Superior Granite Countertop cleaning with StoneClean Plus!

Superior Granite Countertop Cleaning with StoneClean Plus Hard Surface Cleaner

I have written before about why I feel StoneClean Plus is the best polished granite countertop cleanser on the market. I have boasted in how effective it cleans at high dilution rates. One quart will likely last more than a year as it is diluted for spray bottle usage.

How nice and grateful I am to have received this email comment about the product!

“I have used the StoneCleanPlus for 10 years on my granite countertops. Was informed it would maintain my warranty with Home Depot.
I love it as it makes my countertops look amazing.” Lynne B. – Canton , Ohio

I told her I was not aware of a cleaner making and maintaining a warranty valid for granite. Super hot items can damage granite surfaces. Spilling and leaving dark oils can also do some visual damage.
How nice this client feels about using StoneClean Plus!

Give a quart a try today! You will be glad you did.

StoneClean 104 Let it Float!

StoneClean 104 is an exceptional cleanser. Not only the ability to break down even grease as a neutral pH cleanser, but also its ability to float to the surface what it breaks down!

The unique, proprietary surfactants, never die on the floor. This statement is unique to the cleaning industry. Always the active cleanser! 100% floor contact breaking down surface tension of the water itself to the floor and dirt/ grime makes this cleanser superior.

Years ago I gave a quart of “104” to the Tile Council of America president Bob Daniels. One day he called me up and first words were swear words. Whoa, I thought, what was up? 

He had given the quart to the night janitorial staff to use on their new office flooring at Clemson university. They had a hard time cleaning off grout residue from the newly installed flooring. ” The floor looked like it should, brand new like the showroom tiles”  They had tried several differnt cleaning products but to no avail till now.

That was the end of the story though. They wanted me to advertise in their magazine. I had no budget for advertising. A great product but no referrals from one who would have brought me tons of sales.

I am still representing the StoneClean line of cleansers and still do not advertise at all.

StoneClean & Strip Notes

StoneClean & Strip can be used ,as the name implies , as a remover of coatings. The pH is between 10 & 11 which means it is alkaline in solution.

Alkaline ,but not too high pH to harm polished marble flooring! Sometimes a more aggressive approach to cleaning has to be made.

Suggestions for Usage:

  1. Start with a higher dilution to see what results you are getting. This means to try 1/10 dilution first. One part StoneClean & Strip to 10 parts cool to lukewarm water ( never hot).
  2. Adjust dilution to as high as 50/50 or 1/1
  3. Allow sufficient dwell time for floor to remain soaked. This will allow time for the special surfactants to break down the dirt, grime, coating. Allow at least 5 minutes to 15 minutes dwell time before scrubbing
  4. Care needs to be taken not to allow cleanser to dry into the floor. Work in manageable size areas to keep edges wet and not dry out.
  5. Scrub well and rinse well. You may find that you will see the water still dirty after tow or three rinses as it will continue to float up deeply embedded dirt!
  6. coatings not totally removed : allow the floor to dry completely before a second application. Check to see what the name of the coating or wax is called and find out if they made a stripper specific to the coating. I have run across coatings that cannot be totally removed! This makes it especially hard to get the grout joints clean as well

No two jobs deep cleaning will get same exact results so be aware of the challenges.

Good cleaning to you all

Tile & Marble Grout Cleaning

When my wife and would drive and stay in Hotels I would alsways bring a spray bottle of StoneClean & Strip. Most of the bathroom floors were not very clean! A quick spray and allow time to soak, then a good scrubbing would bring up and a lot of dirt, grime, and fungi.

Once while staying in Omaha , NE , I cleaned a bathroom floor in the room we were staying at. The visual effect was amazing. I found the Excutive housekeeper and mentioned I would be happy to do a sample clean. She called a housekeeper and had me go to a bathroom they have been working on to clean the floor. She said, ” we have worked hard on this floor, can you do anything?” I told her it should not be a problem.

Within 15 minutes the floor and grouting were much, much cleaner than before! She ,and all the maids and maintenance  staff came to see. They also were shocked at how fast I cleaned the floor.

They ordered two cases of StoneClean & Strip!

Not every floor cleaning project will have the same desired results. Not all come as clean the first time. The assurance is that it likely will be much better than any previous efforts!

Give StoneClean & Strip a try.

StoneClean & Strip Deep Cleaning

StoneClean & Strip is a super effective deep cleaning agent for most all floor types. Safe for polished marble grout cleaning. 

One client of mine used StoneClean & Strip to clean a concrete floor in a shop. They throughly wetted the floor and while they were waiting and getting ready to scrub the floor they noticed something: oils from the floor were floating to the top of the water! StoneClean & Strip had started the cleaning action before they had a chance to scrub the floor!

Other stories to come as well about this amazing cleanser.

StoneClean Concentrates Float

All StoneClean Concentrates are exceptional and grabbing the dirt and grime and then floating it to the top to be mopped away. 

My first time using StoneClean 104 was deep cleaning a Saltillo tile floor that had not seen a mop and bucket for years. I was shocked to see how where I mopped the floor came clean where I rinsed. 

The homeowner was shocked as well and then ordered six gallons. They probably still have product left! 

One homeowner in Kansas City commented that her grout was coming cleaner with each cleaning without scrubbing. The surfactant based cleaning chemistry puts the cleaning solution into full contact with the floor allowing it to work deeply better than any other product I am aware of today.

I will comment on StoneClean & Strip tomorrow.

StoneClean 60 Outstanding Wood Floor Cleanser!

Most ,who use StoneClean 60 , are unaware of how effective it is to clean wood floors. Since there are no detergents to leave any residues it make the floor look and feel cleaner longer than most products.

I had one client in DesMoines Iowa who loved it since it made their clubhouse floor less slippery when wet. Slip fall issues are lessened when a cleanser leaves no residue behind. 

Since StoneClean 60 is near neutral pH it will do no harm to floor finishes. Give it a try you will like what you see and feel.

StoneClean 104 Simply the Best Cleanser on the Market!

You get what you pay for is a common saying. It also applies to how a product is crafted and its make-up. StoneClean 104 is crafted in a way to be a continually active cleaning agent! This mean that it is effective even in high dilutions. 

One ounce per gallon can produce an effective cleaning solution. Two ounce per gallon even more effective. One client in Salt Lake City complained about the cost of 104, yet it won him a few contracts by proving to the owner it works better than previous ones.

Super effective at not only breaking down the dirt and grime, but also in lifting it to the surface to be mopped away completely.

Give StoneClean 104 a try and you will see value for your money by getting results. One client asked me it 104 had polishing agents in the make up of the chemistry. He said his granite walls and floors shine like never before. I told him that now he was viewing the floors and walls with no detergent residues clouding the natural shine,
