Perfection Can Come in a Bottle


How many times have you have wiped your counter after using it for cooking or eating and thought it looked perfect? But, when you took a closer look you noticed areas that still had particles adhering to the surface.



A good way to avoid that annoying problem is to use a paper towel when wiping the countertop surface with a cleaner. A paper towel allows you to feel any of the stubborn particles that remain hidden because they can be felt through the paper towel. In addition, using a paper towel eliminates the worry of bacteria, which can often be spread with a sponge or dish towel. To achieve perfect looking, clean (and safe) countertops, use Parker Bailey Granite & Stone Cleaner. You will also enjoy its very pleasant and subtle fragrance!

Restore the Beauty of Your Hard Wood Floors

Wood floors are beautiful to look at and very comfortable to walk on, and in order to retain their beautiful appearance, it’s important to care for them properly.

How you ask? It’s quite simple actually, and not as daunting or laborious as it might seem. Sweeping or vacuuming the sand directly from wood floor surfaces will prevent scratching its finish. Do not use detergents to wash wood floors because they will leave a dull residue. Instead, we recommend using Parker & Bailey Wood Floor Cleaner. Its advanced formula removes dirt, grease and almost any normal residue from floors. It’s simple to use and can be applied in a variety of ways. Just spray it on the floor and use a clean absorbent cloth to wipe the cleaned area. Another way is to use any refillable mop cartridge. Fill the cartridge with the floor cleaner and spray and mop using a back and forth motion.

It’s inevitable that over time, wood floors get scratched from shoes, pets and almost anything that crosses its surface. But fear not, there’s a remedy. How you ask again? Simply apply Parker & Bailey Wood Floor Cream to wood floors and scratches will fill in and virtually disappear. Just apply the Wood Floor Cream to a five foot by five foot area of the floor with a soft cloth, let it dry for two minutes, and then wipe the area with either a dry mop or cloth.

Now look at your wood floors. They will be as beautiful as the day they were installed.

New Year’s Resolution…No More Stains


How many of us have made a New Year’s resolution only to see it abandoned in a short period of time. Well, here’s a resolution you can keep…no more stains!

Stains are an unavoidable nuisance. While having lunch, a slip of the hand and bingo, mayo drips onto your shirt. Watching the game on Sunday and salsa slips off the cracker onto the carpet. Driving along in the car, you hit a bump in the road and the drink in your hand splashes the beverage onto the upholstery and rug of the car. Do not panic, any of these scenarios can be dealt with in a fast and effective way with
Parker & Bailey Stain Medic. First, blot any excess stain with an absorbent cloth or paper towel. Secondly apply Stain Medic to a clean cloth or paper towel and begin blotting the stain. Do not rub with too much pressure, doing so can distort fibers or cause coloring in the fabric to lighten if the fabric is not perfectly colorfast. If the stain has not completely disappeared repeat the second step. If you need to use the garment or cloth immediately, take an ordinary hair dryer and hold it several inches from the treated area. The warm air blowing from the dryer will evaporate any moisture the stain free garment. The garment will be ready to wear or the carpet will be ready to walk on. Stain Medic saves the day again and again!!

Bring Your Kitchen Cabinets Back to Life

Have you ever walked into your kitchen, looked at your cabinets and think, “Wow, have they

changed in appearance.” The truth is that over time vapors and oils from cooking adhere to the

finish on the faces of cabinetry whether they are painted or have a varnish or urethane finish;

it even happens with cabinets that have a thermofoil covering, it’s just unavoidable. Water and

soap will penetrate some of this coating, but it will not remove the entire build up. A stronger

chemical with ammonia or bleach will eat away at the finish or paint. How can you bring your

cabinets back to the wonderful way they looked when they were new? The simple solution is

Parker & Bailey Kitchen Cabinet Cream.

Just apply our Kitchen Cabinet Cream and it will totally eliminate the grease, dirt, and cooking

oil coating that dulls and distorts the original beauty of your kitchen cabinets. After applying the

cream, simply wipe the cabinets with any soft dry cloth, buff to your desired luster, and stand

back and admire the way your cabinets look. They will look as good or better than when they

were new. We guarantee you will be thrilled with the results.
