Posted by strakercleaning (strakercleaning), 7 February 2004Without naming names and starting some sort of electronic riot, I would be interested to know how many brands of chemicals people carry on jobs.
I started in CC just using 1 brand, then got into 2nd but now i have found new brand and just have other 2 on van as spare.
I, therefore, carry 3 brands ........ over to you.
*Disclaimer: It's not deep and meaningful, it's just a simple question without motive *
Posted by Dynafoam (Dynafoam), 7 February 2004Hi Chris,
I carry about seven 'brands', and a large number of unbranded raw ingrdients.
However, since useing your favourite products (better unnamed) I find that many of the others are used much less frequently.
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004Hi Chris
I too carry some 'pure' chemicals but the variety of 'kit' chemicals I carry is down to six
Posted by lee_gundry (lee_gundry), 7 February 2004i carry 3 brands for all my cleaning tasks,but i also like to try new brands of sanatisers.
just like to have a change of smelly things.
Posted by strakercleaning (strakercleaning), 7 February 2004Thanks for feedback I bumped into old workmate recently who seemed to have no more than 1 item from any one maker, he must have had at least 10+ different brands on the van. I carry 3 so i was just seeing if i am abnormal.....or is he

Prochem and Chemspec, no brand names on these ammonia and white vinegar.
Chemida, Chris the one I was trying out great on new and old urine, will bring to the sunny day out.
I just love like testing products going to give the micro-splitters a chance, testing one a moment (need to contact the other co for samples) I will then make a judgement decision.
Posted by pre-vac_Nick (pre-vac_Nick), 7 February 2004Just 2 for me also mainly prochem
Posted by Dave_Parry (Dave Parry), 8 February 20043 for me
Posted by strakercleaning (strakercleaning), 8 February 2004See that 3 is about average and Prochem seems to be the most popular common brand
ps. Dave , Hope hand is on the mend..............rsi
Posted by Dave_Parry (Dave Parry), 8 February 2004Hand Is getting there, but not ready to work yet.
Chris I noticed on other board you would get chemspec cat. Well worth it, I have tried their formula 90 with excellent results and use their traffic lane cleaner, and acid rinse. Both very good and great dilution rates.
Posted by Les (Les), 8 February 2004I WAS pretty much Pro Chem only with the odd product on trial.
However following your recent DEBATE I have just tested another product which impressed me greatly as I was testing it on some 'minging' carpets.
No names , but I think I have found the 'solution' to my needs
Posted by strakercleaning (strakercleaning), 8 February 2004Les, I like your style
Posted by squeaky (squeaky), 8 February 2004Two different brands , Craftex and prochem but all supplied by Craftex,hope to be giving Solution a go very shortly.
