Better Bio #179R
Well it looks like the rains are finely behind us and it's time to break out the Bar B Q.  Stainless steel is a very soft metal and needs to be cleaned carefully and with the right products.
Better Bio's # 179 is a safe yet great deep cleaner for this application. It gets all of the dirt, grease and grime that has be accumulating during the last year.  This also will work on your stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and especially on the stove hood.
Magic Al's Glass & Metal Magic
This product will remove even the most stubborn stains on stainless steel. (always clean the surface going with the grain of the stainless steel) 
Try it first with a damp towel and then move to a dry towel if necessary, this will bring the surface back to the original look. 
Use the #179R for maintenance after that. 
Industry News
Many new clients have been calling me on new and older installation of limestone showers having mildew. Most of the problems are from the crack grout on the lower perimeter of the shower. You see, most stones have a tighter surface on top and the edges and are so porous that the water gets under the tiles and the raw end of the tile sucks up the water and wikes up and then allows the mold to get deep inside of the stone. This can be fixed in most cases. When ESP does a re-grouting job, we like to take the crack grout out, seal the stone especially the underside of the perimeter where the wall meets the floor and then apply new grout or a custom colored epoxy. Remember, Calking and silicone are moisture resistant but not water proof!  There is a new polyurethane grout out, though the jury is not in on this one, in other words, time will tell. I have seen products come and go over my 23 years in this business. 

This Month's Recipe... Salmon



  • 2 (12 inch) untreated cedar planks
  • 3 tablespoons and 1-3/4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons and 1-3/4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1-1/3 (2 pound) salmon fillets, skin removed


  1. Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.
  2. In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
  4. Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.


  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons raspberry vinegar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
