#24 Witch Hazel Lotion, an exclusive Fuller product, has witch
hazel extract and no drying alcohol (unlike some imitators) and is a great all purpose
year round moisturizing lotion. Long time distributor Pat
Johnson also loves
Witch Hazel Lotion as a moisturizer after getting a sunburn, and she says
it is also great for bug bites and poison ivy.
She also says it helps prevent freckles for redheads who like the sun. Many men
use it as an aftershave lotion. Long time
distributor Bruce Breen says he sold lots of Witch Hazel Lotion for "Ash" dry
skin when he lived in NJ.
Foot Lotion (replaced by Stanley #A6807 Esentials Feet
TreatMint Foot Lotion) has been on TV lately as great for invigorating circulation in tired feet;
Ive sold some to home health care professionals.
Steve W in
says “I sold Dad
Fuller's Ultimate Skin Balm to a co-worker 2 weeks ago. He liked it so
well, he told other co-workers. They in turn asked me to get them some.
Well...... I sure did. In a 2 week span I collected orders for 74 jars!”
He says people are delighted with it and using it for their hands, faces,
and feet for problem dry skin. The word is still spreading as he sells even
more. One bought six more jars for everyone in her family.
Pat Johnson also tried this product and says that even though it felt like
putting petroleum jelly on at first, it all dried into her skin and is
WONDERFUL. She's getting more and telling people she knows. Product value
stories like this is exactly what makes Fuller Brush thrive as a company.
Although we are not allowed to make medical claims, another distributor who
prefers to remain anonymous, says it was the only thing he could find to relieve
hemorrhoids that actually worked. The label says: Provides "ultimate relief" for
dry, cracked, chapped, weather beaten skin! Enhanced with Ginger Root extract
known for its natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, and Echinacea
known for its natural healing properties for burns, wounds, scratches, bites and
stings. Use everyday ... even on sensitive skin. Clean light fresh fragrance.
3.8oz jar is now a more convenient 4oz tube.
Happy testimonials are an everyday
occurrence. Here's one from our Discussion Board:
I work in a nursing home in which most of my fellow employees
have never heard of Fuller Brush. One lady that had heard from her
Grandmother about #619 Extra Strength Bowl Cleaner, ordered and used it.
When she returned to work the next day, she complained about how she had
used everything WalMart, the local hardware store,
and the farmers co-op had to offer, but to no
avail. She applied the Bowl Cleaner
but couldn't wait the full 10 minutes as it said on the directions. To her
amazement the rust and build up disappeared. Now everyone there wants to see
my catalogs. Orders are starting to come in. - Michael
replied: Thanks for your input, Michael. That's why I call Fuller
Brush "Products with a Difference". Bowl
Cleaner is one of my top products. On really stained toilets, it'll leave
CLEAN streaks running down the sides! I've got a case of Bowl Cleaner that I'm delivering to a
cleaning company this coming week; they've been buying it from me for years.
Besides how great it works, it also smells MINTY fresh!
One of the main things that I like about this business is the fact that I'm
not USING people to push products onto so I can make some money. I'm doing
them a favor by making the products available to them, and they regularly
let me know how much they appreciate how great the products work. That's all
I need for motivation to build this business, instead of the rah-rah hype
meetings that some companies need.

Dishing the dirt on office germs
By Simon Hooper for CNN
LONDON, England (CNN)
--It's not just computer viruses that you should worry about at
According to a University of Arizona
study, a typical desk is capable of supporting up to 10 million
bacteria -- 400 times more germs than the average toilet seat.
And workers who believe their desks are
clean enough to eat their lunch off are in for a nasty shock.
Longer office hours and the modern
appetite for workplace snacking have created an environment perfect
for bacterial contamination. "For bacteria, a desk is really the lap
of luxury," said Dr. Charles Gerba, the University of Arizona
microbiologist who conducted the research in 2002.
"They can feast all day from breakfast to
lunch and even dinner." Gerba's study found that bacteria levels
increased drastically during the day, peaking after lunch.
Telephones were worst affected, with
25,127 germs found in an average square inch on the receiver.
Desktops were also heavily contaminated, with 20,961 germs found.
Workers who prefer e-mail to the phone
aren't safe either. Keyboards were found to support 3,295 germs per
square inch, with another 1,676 settling on the mouse.
By contrast, the average square inch of
toilet seat supports just 49 germs.
While many workers like to keep their
desk tidy, few actually worry about cleaning it.
Even though crumbs and coffee spills are
capable of supporting mini eco-systems, the closest most office
space ever gets to a proper clean-up is an occasional cursory brush
with a duster. "Without cleaning, a small area on your
desk or phone can sustain millions of bacteria that could
potentially cause illness," said Gerba.
The good news is that a little bit of
hygiene management goes a long way to tackling the problem.
Among office workers who were instructed
to clean their desks daily with disinfecting wipes, bacterial levels
were reduced by 99 percent. "One good way to kill bacteria and help
stop the spread of germs is to regularly clean your personal
workspace," said Gerba. "Using disinfecting wipes can drastically
reduce your chances of illness."
And if you have to eat your lunch off
anything in the office, try the photocopier. With just 69 germs per
square inch, it's almost as clean as the bathroom.
More stories about one of Fuller's top
selling products for the past 40 or 50 years: The #645 & #647 12 oz Perfumed
Deodorant Blocks. They are very popular with people who know what they do - deodorize
musty areas and keep bugs out. Floral
or Clean Cotton scent. Handy hang-up case available
in white, pink, or blue. Customers tell me that they drive mice
and other animals out of your house or camp! Place a block or crumbled pieces wherever you
hear noises or see traces of their presence. I live in an old house and keep blocks in my
attic to drive out bugs and wasps, and one in the cellar for spiders. Maybe it's more than
coincidence that I've never had a mice problem. You can use these in your closets to
deodorize your clothes of perspiration, smoking, and cooking odors. They kill moths and
carpet beetle larvae. Also a great deodorizer for diaper pails, garbage areas, and
automobiles. Note: In small areas, just poke a hole in the
wrapper rather than remove the entire wrapper.
Our #749 Lemon DCW Furniture Wax customers are repeat customers.
They won't even finish up their old brand from the store. "DCW" means Dusts,
Cleans, and Waxes, with premium Carnauba wax. The #756 Duster Spray cleans and
polishes without wax, and grabs all that dust.
The Slenderduster and the Microfiber Slenderduster
are terrific for dusting the hard to reach tight places in your home and have removable
washable covers. - while my supplies last, see my clearance
list or brushes page for the Microfiber one, $10.
What makes Fuller Brush Laundry
We have two concentrated laundry detergents - Fuller 86
liquid and powder, and both
are phosphate-free. I prefer liquid to powder because I think it is more economical and
you don't have to make sure all that powder dissolves correctly. Hot water is best to
dissolve and activate powder, but who washes in hot anymore? Most store detergents have
dyes - ever wonder about that dark blue color and if it would stain your whites if you
pour it directly on them? Our detergents are dye-free and low-sudsing. I add Fulsol to my Fuller 86
when I need extra grease-fighting. Fuller 86 is fragrance-free. THAT is
evidently a very strong selling point, though it makes no difference to me. Many people
these days have skin allergies and their clothes make them itch or get a rash. It can
actually be the dyes and fragrances in their laundry detergent. I have many customers now
with very happy families since they switched to Fuller 86
(including Amway dealers who don't like their own soap!). Fuller laundry detergent is
about the same cost per use as store brands, but at wholesale and with the added benefit
of being able to tell your customers that you use it, it is a bargain.
Why should they buy Fuller products if you don't? Once the old soap residue is
washed out of your laundry, you can cut the amount of detergent you use. I find
half the recommended 1½ ounces to be plenty. The pump makes it easy to measure. Use the pump to prevent overuse. A
#952 gallon pump squirts one ounce per pump.
A gallon would do 128 loads at 1 ounce per load of laundry, making the retail
cost per load about 25¢. I think that's cheap.
JULY 2014 - Check out the new STANLEY-100 super-concentrate, NO dyes or
fragrances, specifically designed for High-efficiency low-sudsing machines.
Washes 100 loads.
Clean your Clothes Dryer. Fire departments will
tell you to use this brush. SEE WEBPAGE ABOVE.
#56 Spray n Sparkle Eyeglass Cleaner provides 200 sprays for
glass or plastic lenses, binoculars, cameras, computer
Stainless Steel Sponges #868 just have to be
mentioned here. I try to keep one or two of most products in my inventory,
but I try to keep at least a dozen boxes of these on hand. Our scrubbers
don't scratch and gouge like some cheap store brand imitators; you can even
rub nylon stockings with them. A new customer, Marion G in NJ, had
been looking for Fuller and called me finding me through another mailorder
customer, saying "the Stainless Steel pot scrubbers are very good.
They last a whole year. They don't stink or smell [like other
pot scrubbers]. The stores around here have some that are 2 for $1, but
they don't compare to what you've got." They come in a box of 3.
I keep hearing about new uses for this versatile product. Scrub your
potatoes and carrots with them instead of peeling half of the vegetable and
nutrients into your trash. And if you know any fishermen, these
make great fish scalers!
Lucille S in Maine is sold on the
#605 Pre-Laundry Stain Spray. She washed some clothes with a vitamin gelcap in one
of the pockets. She noticed it after the clothes had started through the dryer. She got
reddish brown stains all over the clothes once the heat burst the gelcap. She sprayed the
clothes with the stain spray and the stains came out completely. Having a Fuller Brush
product that gets the job done right the first time saved her lots of money on
clothes. Also available as #617 non-aerosol Liquid Stain
