By 2020, this number is expected to exceed 12 million.  (Prudential Research Report: Long Term Care Cost Study, 2010.) The Baby Boomer generation is the largest US age demographic- in fact, over the next 20 years, the number of Americans age 65 and older will more than double to 71 million, comprising roughly 20% of the U.S. population. It’s not all senior citizens in LTC facilities, however. Did you know that a staggering 40% of people receiving long-term care are working-age...

A Natural Whiteboard Cleaner, Perfect for School Bid Season

A Natural Whiteboard Cleaner, Perfect for School Bid Season

Gone are the days of students having to take turns clapping the dust from erasers, or washing the dusty residue from the chalkboard. I sometimes miss the smell of chalk dust from my childhood, but it’s nice to know that students today are seldom exposed to chalk-dust inhalants, as most schools have replaced the old dusty blackboard with modern, cleaner whiteboards. Whiteboards are much easier to read, don’t have occasionally piercing screeches of chalk, and are much easier to keep clean. After several weeks of constant usage, however, even a brand new whiteboard is subject to ghosting, a phenomenon caused...

Clorox Innovates Cleaning with New Smart Tube Bottles

As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for,” but with certain cleaning products packaging design, that isn’t always true. Have you ever had to consolidate partial bottles because they were too empty to work properly? Have you had to tilt the sprayer at awkward angles just to squeeze out those last few drops or avoid misfires?

Clorox recognized that this problem was generally universal when it comes to the current...
