AMERICA'S BUSINESSWOMAN

By:  Roseann Sparacia

July 28, 2021

America's businesswoman, she's determined to move beyond circumstance to achieve and succeed. 

The story of Betsy Ross is an amazing example of a businesswoman whose one achievement became her legacy.

Betsy Ross was born in 1752 in Philadelphia, she married at the age of 21 to a man named John Ross. He was a local upholsterer. Betsy worked as his apprentice and they fell in love.

Betsy and John started their own upholstery business shortly after they were married. Then in 1776, the war broke out and fabrics were hard to find. The business was suffering. Then her husband joined the fight and was fatally wounded. She was left alone to run their business. She did all types of sewing to succeed. So, it was no surprise that in 1776, George Washington, Robert Morris and George Ross, (her late husband's uncle) went to visit her at the upholstery shop.  Washington showed Betsy a sketch of a flag with thirteen red and white stripes and thirteen six-pointed stars and asked Betsy if she could make the flag from the sketch. It's been noted, that Betsy wasn't sure she could, but agreed to try.  She suggested changing the six-point star to a five-point star; with one snip of her scissor - a star was born!     

The following year, on June 14,1977, Congress officially adopted the Stars and Stripes as the national flag!

Betsy, not only triumphed against all odds, but she left a legacy. 

America's businesswoman might not be called upon to do something as grand as sewing the American flag, but in every industry there's a woman that can change a life, or change an industry with a new idea or a new way of doing something. Everyday is a new opportunity to achieve something amazing!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT SUMMER?

What do you like best about summer?

Is it the beach?

Is it the sand?

Is it the barbeques with family and friends or is it simply the sunshine?

Although, I love everything summer has to offer. It's the sunshine that I love best.   

Did you know that the word sunshine literally means someone or something that radiates warmth, cheer and happiness?  There's nothing like grabbing your morning coffee or tea and sitting in the backyard enjoying those quiet moments in the sun before the barbeque.

There's much to do after those quiet moments; getting your home and backyard ready for your friends and family; making sure everything is clean for your perfect get together.

Our Tool Klean's CleanR solution, exclusively formulated IN THE USA for Tool Klean, cleans surfaces without leaving a sticky residue.  It's the perfect solution for cleaning your table, chairs, barbeque, door knobs, sliding door handles, everything to remove debris and get everything squeaky clean.

WHAT ARE THEY?

What are they, I asked myself as I walked into the kitchen?  I could see tiny black dots all over my counter and window sill.  I turned and grabbed for a towel and to my horror, when I turned back - those black dots were moving.

 

I was horrified!

Oddly enough, shortly before my bird mite encounter, I heard a story of bird mites getting into a friend's home and how difficult it was for her to get rid of them. To make matters worse, I had dogs.  No pesticides in my house!

The most important thing you must do before getting rid of your bird mites is to find how they're entering your home.  Once found, remove the birds along with their nests.  Then clean the area and seal the entry point.

Now you're ready to kill those bird mites!

I wish I would've known then, what I know now. I wouldn't have had to deal with those dirty bird mites for months after the birds were removed.

But I have exciting new for you -

Our Tool Klean UV Tabletop is being used to kill bird mites.  Yes, you heard me.  Our Tool Klean UV Sanitizing products can kill bird mites.  Last Friday a woman called the office.  She was so excited to tell me how our UV Tabletop had solved her bird mite problem.  She was so excited, she ordered a second tabletop.  I loved listening to her story and how our product solved her problem. 

UV Technology is awesome!

UV & YOUR MAKE-UP BRUSHES

Did you ever wonder what's living on your make-up brushes? 

UV & your make-up brushes…is a topic too important to overlook. UV light is an easy way to kill germs that live on the pretty brushes we use everyday.   

Women love their make-up brushes. Just like the women who use them, they come in every shape and size. 

Everyday, we grab our many make-up brushes: our eyeshadow, eyebrow, blush, and most important, our cover everything we don't want anyone to see brush. Day after day, we grab our pretty brushes, never thinking about the bacteria that gathers on them simply by touching our skin.

 

And let's be honest…we don't wash our  brushes everyday.   

Well, we at Tool Klean have two products that make sanitizing your make-up brushes easy, quick and effective.  

Check out our UV light stik and our UV Oven -  NO HEAT, NO LIQUID, NO CHEMICALS, JUST UV LIGHT!

UV & THE PET INDUSTRY

UV & the Pet Industry - the pet industry is one that's reaped much benefit from the UV technology. 

UVC technology has evolved since its inception in the mid-century. It was first used in medical facilities due to its proven effectiveness to sanitize, but soon grew to become a widespread resource for consumers and businesses alike. 

However, it was in 2017, that a dog groomer/ breeder realized that the Pet Industry was untouched by this UVC technology and its benefits.

It was her love for the industry and for animals that led to the creation of Tool Klean, with a preliminary focus on UV & the Pet Industry. 

As in every industry, it’s the person passionate about what he or she does that will seek to create an innovative new product or service with the goal of improving that industry.  UVC light devices are those innovative products that make the life of the groomer, veterinarian, doggie daycare and kennel owner’s life easier, as well as creating a healthier environment for them and their clients.    

Tool Klean products are uniquely made for the Pet Industry: tested and proven to kill OVER 99% OF PATHOGENS, INCLUDING CANINE COUGH, VIRAL ENTERITIS, RINGWORM AND MORE… 

The Tool Klean UV Oven Pro is perfect for sanitizing grooming tools, brushes, blades, even the groomer’s cell phones and other personal items.  The Oven Pro is mountable, making it great for mobile groomers as well as storefront salons. 

Be sure to remove the debris from your tools before placing them in the UV Oven Pro.  Our Tool CleanR will remove debris with no sticky residue. This is a Tool Klean exclusive product.  It cleans surfaces, as well as tools. Don’t miss out on this product!  It’s a winner!  

Our products are also designed to be used at home to make the pet owner’s life easier. 

Perfect for home use is our Tool Klean UV light Stik. It will quickly sanitize kitty litter boxes, pet beds, cages, food dishes, couches, chairs, and any other place your furry friend is allowed to go.

READY TO SHOP?

Now that you’ve decided to purchase your new product from Tool Klean, how do you choose the one that best fits your needs?

Whether a business owner or consumer, there are some things you need to know before purchasing a UV light device, and what to look for in a UV light product. Ask yourself these questions: What is my purpose for purchasing a UV light? From which company should I purchase my UV Light?  How do I know that the UV light actually does what the company states it does? Does Tool Klean offer anything aside from UV Light devices?

No worries! See below for the answers to these and other frequently asked questions:

Which product do I buy and how will it help me?

  • For entire rooms or large objects: The UV Tabletop Room Sanitizer & the UV Rolling Cart
  • For hard-to-reach spaces or fragile items: The UV Light Stik or UVC Max Handheld Sanitizer
  • For small, frequently-used items (phones, keys, glasses, etc.): The UV Light Oven Pro
  • For small metal tools and objects used daily by pet groomers, barbers, stylists and the at home manicurist. The list goes on…: The Tool Klean Hot Cup Sanitizer
  • How do I keep my Tool Klean products clean? Our Tool CleanR Sanitizing Spray
  • How do I stay safe while using my UV light device? Our UV Safety Glasses can help with that, along with our built-in safety features for each product.
  • Check out the 'Shop' section for more details. 
  •  

    From which company should I purchase my UV light device?

  • EPA Approved? Since the EPA regulates UV products and
  • sanitizers to ensure they are safe and efficient, it’s important to purchase one from a company with an EPA registered facility. Tool Klean is approved by the EPA and FCC with our EPA establishment # being 94836-NY-1.

  • Integrity is Key: Be on the lookout for any company that sells UV light products but either doesn’t have an EPA registration # or has a foreign EPA registration #. These companies are selling their UV products illegally in the U.S.
  •  

  • How do I know the UV light device will do what the company tells me it does?
      • Lab Results: It’s imperative to make sure that the company from which you’re buying your UV light device can provide laboratory results to back up their claims of eliminating disease-causing pathogens. All of our Tool Klean products have been lab-tested and are capable of destroying hard to kill pathogens, such as: bacteria, mold, fungus, staph, salmonella, kennel cough, and much more, keeping you and those around you safe. See the ‘How It Works’ section of our website to review lab results and learn more about the product you’d like to buy.
      • Reviews: As everyone knows, if a company has poor reviews or very little reviews in general, it’s likely that their products and services aren’t performing at a high level. At Tool Klean, we pride ourselves not only on the quality of our products, but also our superior customer service. By visiting the ‘Shop’ section of our website, you can see that we average between 4.5-5 stars on all of our products, and many people are quite pleased with our customer service as well.
