This article first appeared on the traditional painter website where you will find some great tips from industry experts.
Amongst all the different potions, lotions and various products I keep in the back of my van, I have to rank Big Wipes in the top five and use them throughout each and every working day. Why? Because they are so versatile in their uses:
You only have to go in to any decent trade or DIY outlet to find this product, I always have a tub in the back of my van for cleaning paint off my hands at the end of the day. However, I recently discovered a variety of uses for Big Wipes and associated products, so I thought I’d share them with you. Big Wipes are dermatological tested
As a tradesman I will have my hands in amongst all sorts of grime and dirt, so when it comes to tucking in to my cheese sarnie and cuppa, I always grab a couple of industrial wipes at snap time, these are impregnated with an antibacterial ingredient and give my hands the Big Wipe.
The BIG WIPES Industrial+ formula is not only a super-strength industrial cleaner, it is also antibacterial. This provides added protection to users working in potentially hazardous environments, outside or in.
Big Wipes Industrial are 99%+ effective against MRSA, E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Clostridia, Enterococcus, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus Aureus and Weils Disease.
This is what Big Wipes have to say about Dermatitis in the workplace:
Dermatitis is one of the fastest growing reasons for time off work and is accounting for an increasing number of claims by employees against employers. It is vital that organisations identify where products are being used that may lead to irritation and put into place appropriate processes to ideally remove the risks or minimise wherever possible.
The new Big Wipes Industrial Bio comes in a handy 1 litre trigger bottle; this product cuts through grease and removes grime and I often use it in my prep work on hand painted kitchens.
I tend to use it with the industrial+ Big Wipes which offers me even more degreasing power and the wipes get into all those little nooks and crannies on door mouldings and plate racks etc…
All painters and decorators will know; it doesn’t matter how careful you are, that paint you’ve been using always somehow ends up around the cab of your van, these Big wipes are great for removing it from interior trim, your steering wheel and gear shift.
My electric window controls were covered in paint until I got the Big Wipes on em! Now my cab looks like new again.
My apprentice washed a roller out the other day and decided to spin out the excess in front of my van. I could of given him the big swipe but instead opted for the Big Wipe. As you can see, it works on external body trim also.
Now I’m not an obsessive person but I find my self going round wiping everything with these Big Wipes, well almost everything! Hmmm.
Its not rocket science that masonry paint sticks to masonry! Especially once its dried on brickwork, so when I spotted this the other day I reached for my Big Wipes power spray bottle, gave it a couple of good squirts and left it a few minutes to soak in…
…I’m sure if I sprayed on more and scrubbed with a stiff brush this brickwork would come up like new. But that’s another story!
The paint spillage was gone and that was great news for me.
The other thing I love about these products is the Big Wipe tubs have snap on lids, this not only keeps the wipes fresh and ready to use but when empty, they make great storage pots for brushes, screws, bits and bobs etc… I use them for putting door handles and fittings in when I remove them during a hand painted kitchen project. The empty power spray trigger bottles also have their uses. However always remember to label re-used bottles otherwise the Big Wipe Out may happen on something not intended too!
