So thatís what it is!

If you win you win, and if you loose your an under achiever. (wasnít Bart Simpson one of those?)

So no under achievers (or Bart Simpsonís) need  apply to Waterless, because if you fail (it seems) it will only be because your a "CAN'T".

However if you are not sure, then donít worry cos you might have a great job at Sky Call Centre or probably anywhere else other than Waterless.

And I thought life was complicated and that success was a learning curve.

Best of luck with filling the post Waterless, Iím sure you will have them queuing up.

But originaly I was quite interested in what Waterless was offering until I got blanked...Looking for something for my husband to do..

Hi Petra, welcome back, you were missed.

You're looking for something for your husband to do?

Haven't you enlisted him for Hygiene Hunks yet?

Never mind Waterless, you should try 'undie-less'!

In my research of Franchises I was reading a profile of a susseful Merry Maids Franchise, obviously dominated by quality ladies like yourself.

Husbands job was distributing leaflets until business reached about 4 team level.

I believe you are there already.

My husband has done all that for me, even helps when short of staff, but just want something for him to do that would be his..if you know what i mean.......
Posted by Ian_G. (Ian_G.), 4 December 2003
Sure do.

Surprised Mr Waterless has not contacted you.

I looked at Web Site looks good but not sure about getting involved with a Franchise as you loose independence and you still have to make it happen
Posted by petra (petra), 4 December 2003

Posted by Clean_Waterless (Clean_Waterless), 6 December 2003

Hi Petra

We manufacture approx 750,000 litres of Dry Wash and Guard (Waterless), I`m sure I can spare the odd bottle for you.

Let me know

Mr Splasgroup,

When your previous company was cleaning 6500 Mercs a year did you use a waterless system.

Hi Ian
Yes we did but it was our own manufactured system. Also we used all our own valeting chemicals in the operation and we made great use made of our Acrylic PTFE paint protection. In saying that we used the waterless system for own convenience and not for any business venture reason.
