Sit back, relax and I want to tell you a story that involves my best friend, Carl Wiglesworth and a product that I just forgot about. That happens to me. Carl vacations a lot. And this time he was going to the balloon festival in New Mexico. He went to go rent a car in Boerne, when they brought him the car he looked inside and the seats were filthy. Both the front seat and the back seat. He went back inside the rental place and told them and they said that the seats were clean, it was a stain that they couldn’t get out. They had tried everything and if anything the stain got bigger. Carl took the car home and tried everything .. and nothing was budging the spots. So he pulled something off his laundry shelf …something he had bought from me over 8 years ago. Went back out to the car and tried the product. He applied it exactly as the instructions said. And the spots disappeared, completely. The first time. He was amazed. So amazed that he went back to the rental place and showed them. They couldn’t believe it. Carl and Laurie went off on that trip, had a great time and took the product with them. One day Carl spilled coffee on his favorite shirt, one day Laurie spilled sauce on new T-Shirt and once again Carl pulled out “Herbys Fame” and removed all the stains on their clothes. When he got back from their trip we had lunch. He wanted more of the Herby’s Fame…I was lost. I didn’t remember Herby’s Fame. I didn’t carry it at the store. I did a little research, and found the Herby’s Fame again. It’s now on our shelves. And like Carl I have used it on my car. I had a stain that no one could remove from the carpet on floor board. I tried the Herby’s Fame, and it came right out. All you do it soak the stain, with the Herby’s Fame, rough it up with your fingers, and then use a towel and remove the stain. That’s it! It will remove grease, raw eggs, lipstick, tea, coffee, blood and a whole lot more. Herby’s Fame comes in quarts and gallons.
Now to the email…..
Question: I love using Rinz EZ on the outside of my windows. Nothing works better. But on the inside I haven’t found anything that really works that well. Do you have a favorite product?
Answer: Clean the inside of your windows with No Streak made by Gel Gloss. I cleans instantly and your windows will look polished.
Question: I have cleaned my bathroom grout but it still looks gray…it’s supposed to be white. I worked so hard, but it just looks terrible. Now I am having guests over for Thanksgiving and I want it to look good…do you have any suggestions?
Answer: Sure I do. Grout Aide will make it look white again. Just wipe it over the grout and if any gets on the tile just wipe it off. It will look like you just re-grouted.

Question: Mr Handyman, I can’t remove the hard water stain from my glass shower doors. I even went to a glass company and they sold me this paste and that didn’t do anything. Do you know of something that will remove really tough hard water stains from glass?
Answer: Delete Germ is the best for removing lime deposits on glass. Just work in a small area at a time and don’t walk away while you are working…clean off the lime and then rinse completely. Then move on to the next spot. I had a drippy shower head at the lake house and the lime was so thick …I used the Delete Germ and a green scrubby pad and when I was done the glass on the door looked brand new.
If you like to bake during the holiday season, you need to try USA Pans. You won’t need any oil or spray to coat the pans when baking. They are safe and don’t contain any PTFE’s or PFOA’s. Any thing you bake will evenly cook and easily release. I use the small cookie sheet all the time. It cleans up so easy.
