    Keepin’ It Clean: A Spill-Safe Eating Guide

    Tweet Do you have customers whose spouse or significant other might sigh and say, “Can’t take you anywhere!”? Not because of their manners or demeanor, which are above reproach. It’s more basic than that: the way they eat. Even though these are adults, and they hold their utensils correctly, they still manage to get food [...]

    How to Delete Spills Promptly

    Tweet Staying safe can be a challenge these days. With our digital footprint out there for anyone to acquire, it’s easy to fall prey to scams. Especially at his time of year, when people ship packages coast to coast and to every point in between. One popular digital virus is a UPS/Fed Ex/USPS “Delivery Failure”. The [...]

    Celebrity Baby Boom: Who’ll Clean Up the Mess?

    Tweet Have you observed the recent spate of celebrity babies? Maybe there aren’t any more kids being born than usual, but their names are so unusual, they stand out. In any case, if there’s anything we know about children (and the Impact Absorbents family has its share of them!) it’s that they tend to leave [...]

    On Guard! Don’t Let Drains Drain Your Energy

    Tweet “En guard!” is a French fencing phrase (say that three times fast) that means, “Get ready! Your opponent is about to run you through with a lance!” Or it may have meant, “Look out! Your drain is about to overflow!” The latter warning should never be uttered in these modern times, however. Not if [...]

    That’s a Wrap: No PFAs in Our Products!

    Tweet A lot of women are lipophobic (that’s fear of fat), which may prevent them from eating fast food. That’s a positive. Fast food is not nutritious. Yet a new study by the Centers for Disease Control found one in three U.S. adults eat fast food every day. That’s about 85 million people; an alarming statistic. Not [...]

    The Long and the Short of It

    Tweet Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, November 4, 2018, at 2 a.m., which means that unless you’re out on Saturday night into the wee hours, you should set your clocks back before you go to bed Saturday night. Of course, “set your clocks back” is a little anachronistic in the digital age, when our [...]

    If You Don’t Stand for Something…

    Tweet “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” This well-loved aphorism is variously attributed to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, to a British journalist by the same name, to actor Peter Marshall, and even to Martin Luther King, Jr. When something is popular, whether it’s a slogan or a bestselling spill clean up [...]

    Human Lampposts: Spills Waiting to Happen

    Tweet Music executive Simon Cowell recently revealed on The Ellen Show that he’s surrendered his cell phone. He gave it up for good, and reports he feels so much more present and less distracted now. It’s a worthwhile proposition. Although we don’t expect most people to be quite this willing to relinquish their device dependence, doing [...]

    The 4 Rs: Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    Tweet School’s been back in session for at least a month, so the 3 Rs are well underway. Besides, with texting and tablets, the old reading, writing and ‘rithmetic are kind of anachronistic. Do kids even learn to write their names in script anymore? But we digress. The 4 Rs are perennial — and more [...]

    Sailing the High Cs of Spill Clean Up

    Tweet A member of our staff was shopping at a major food retailer, when she started to walk down an aisle half flooded with water! There was a safety cone sitting forlornly in the midst of the mess, but, apparently, nobody had taken the next step and communicated that a spill needed to be cleaned up. She [...]
