We have -- my background is, I am an engineer that happens to own a cleaning company. We have a very good coverage throughout the D.C., Baltimore, and Maryland area, and are looking to expand nationwide. We clean many homes, and some embassies and it's just wonderful to be here to show you some of our secrets. One of our biggest secrets is time management and efficiency. Economy of motion is just a wonderful thing for being able to complete a project in a timely manner. So, a couple of our rules is, right in the very beginning, we'll then be working from top to bottom, and left to right. There's no going back, no backtracking, and we are not going to be repeating anything. Some of the tools we have today, are our cleaning solution; this is what we call our Green Solution, which is a hydrogen-peroxide based product. This is our reusable cleaning cloth which is actually a preconsumer diaper that hasn't been used, we have our scouring powder, we have some concentrate, just in case we need to make more of our Green Solution -- very important. And this is one of the biggest secrets; this is a white scrubby pad, almost all of the cleaning will be done with the white scrubby pad. It takes a lot of the effort out of it. So, we do most of the work with the white scrubby pad, and just merely polish off with our cleaning pad, which most people are inclined to use as their sole cleaning tool. We also have a metal scraper. This is used to get little bits and pieces of things off that would take way too long with the white scrubby pad. And for our corners, we have a corner brush. Nice stiff bristles that can get in behind the faucets and the sink, and the soap dish, and all sorts of convenient places that the white scrubby pad may not get. We also have a few trade secrets. We have a microfiber cloth here, and I'll explain a little bit about that in the future. Throughout the video, we are going to be showing you some different secrets about cleaning and we'll interject some green and environmentally friendly type things as we go on, but now, we've got a great attitude, and we are helping the environment and cleaning our bathroom at the same time. We are going to start off with cleaning the sink, move on to cleaning the mirrors, our toilet, and a shower, and lastly the floor. Come along with us as we green clean your bathroom.
