Wednesday Weekly Stock: Cleaning And Restoring

Every week at W.L. may we have several items we feature as good parts to consider adding to your stock. These parts also have special pricing available. For pricing details, ask your account representative for more information. This week we return to the kitchen to look at a few things for cleaning and restoring.


On yesterday's blog post from W.L. May Company, Kelly told you about a stainless steel repair kit called Scratch-B-Gone.. She talked a bit about the usefulness of this product for a homeowner who is dealing with a scratched appliance. If you are one of the many service techs who also rebuild and sell used appliances this product can help your detailing work be cleaner and more impressive. The number of reorders we get for this product stands as an endorsement for how well it works. Ask for part DW-SBG-HK.

If the stainless steel is not actually scratched, but instead is looking rough due to smears and smudges, Affresh makes a product to help. The stainless steel wipes offered by Affresh resemble popular anti-bacterial wipes on the market. Ask for part W10355049.

We are sure that most of you are already aware of Affresh, the well known cleaner, that can help eliminate door boot odors from HE front load washing machines. In this weeks cleaner promotion, it would be hard not to include the three pack of the cleaning pucks, part number W10135699.

Affresh doesn't just make cleaners for stainless and for washing machines. They also have a cleaner for dishwashers and dis[psers to keep those kitchen appliances looking and smelling clean. The part number for Afressh Disposal and Dishwasher and Disposal Cleaner is W10282479.
While Affresh is Whirlpools preferred method of washing machine interior cleaning, GE has their own approach, In partnership with the well known laundry detergent, GE offers a Tide branded washing machine cleaner. If you would like to try this product, ask your account manager for part WX10X10010.

Lets take a break from cleaning products for a moment to look at few other items we are featuring this week. The first is something every technician uses. It is required for many service jobs, The 800 sealant from 3M is popular in our trade and is frequently used in many other types of repair businesses. We stock it under the part number 27615P.

The next item on our list is not really a stock keeping part. We did not mean to deceive, actually this is a good item for any homeowner with a yard. AccuSharp has, for years, been a popular seller at our counter, Their inexpensive knife sharpeners have proven very popular with our customers. Now AccuSharp has a sharpener for your garden tools (like your lawnmower!). Your part number is 006.

Returning to cleaning products, we turn to the kitchen and a couple of Whirlpool branded cleaning products. The 31464 Cooktop Cleaner comes in a 10 ounce bottle. As the name implies the product is great for cleaning ceramic cooktops. It is also used for cleaning halogen glass. But it does a lot more. You can use it to clean glass cookware or take it with you the next time you clean the bathroom. Sinks, shower doors, and fiberglass shower stalls can all be cleaned with this versatile cleaner.

Finally, this week, we have a cleaning product that is versatile enough to rename. Let me explain, 31476 was originally marketed by Whirlpool as a cleaner for microwave ovens. Its citrus based formula left a pleasant scent and a clean microwave in its wake. In fact, it did such a good job on microwave ovens that Whirlpool relabeled the product as an All Purpose Appliance Cleaner. It will do a good job at cleaning any appliance, EXCEPT stainless steel units. This product is not recommended for stainless steel. See the beginning of this post for solutions to help clean stainless steel.
