New from Rubbermaid Com- mercial Products (RCP) is the Brute Deluxe Rim Caddy Bundle which brings lean cleaning productivity and labour cost optimisation ben- efits to many building service contractors and particularly those working in office build- ings and retail locations. The bundle comprises of a


tough, 167 litre capacity Rub- bermaid Brute grey con- tainer mounted on a quiet dolly. A Deluxe Rim Caddy is secured on to the top lip of the Brute to offer capacious yet organised storage of cleaning supplies. The time- saving advantage for the cleaning operative is that with this product bundle, they can now pick up waste and clean in one pass. This compares favourably to the


The latest advanced course to be added to the Prochem Europe training programme is likely to prove the ideal solution for carpet and up- holstery cleaners wanting to learn more about stains. An intensive day-long in-


vestigation into their na- ture, origin and how to remove or improve them, the Prochem Stain Re- moval Course provides ex- tensive hands-on practice on all kinds of stains com- monly found both in the do- mestic and commercial environments. The day-long course,

self includes three additional holders allowing users to also easily carry multiple mop handles and brooms for dusting. Even more acces- sories such as Hygen mi- crofibre cloths can be carried in the fabric multi- pocket organiser which hangs from the caddy. A fur- ther ingenious touch, borne out of Rubbermaid’s exten- sive pre-launch field testing, is the inclusion of a large hook which is a convenient way for the cleaner to trans- port a hazard warning sign to where the cleaning will take place. www.rubbermaid.eu
