Dwell Time – More Means Less

Stain Solver Pro Tip #3

We wanted to share another tip that bubbled to the surface from last-week’s survey.

You may be one that shared having a bit of trouble getting great results with STAIN SOLVER.

It’s All About Dwell Time

Dwell Time – that’s a fancy phrase for the amount of time you soak an item or keeping the surface you want to clean WET with the STAIN SOLVER solution.

The longer you allow the solution to DWELL and work on its own, the LESS work you have to do.

This dwell time can be up to six hours!


1. Always apply the STAIN SOLVER solution to a dry surface. If the surface is WET, the solution can’t soak into the pores to do deep cleaning.

2. Make sure the STAIN SOLVER solution doesn’t evaporate. Work in the shade if outdoors.

How to Get it to Dissolve FAST!

This is part two of a short series of emails resulting from the packaging survey you may have filled out a few days ago.

Dissolving Blues

You may be one of our customers that has issues getting STAIN SOLVER to dissolve.

Let’s go back in time to your high school chemistry class. I remember my chemistry teacher, Mr. Fuchs. His younger brother was in my class.

One of the experiments we had to do was measure the time it took to dissolve some crystals in water. It might have been copper sulfate.

We had to try to dissolve the crystals in ice water, room temperature water, and boiling hot water.

To make a long story short, the crystals dissolved the fastest in the boiling water. It took forever and ever to get some of them to dissolve in the ice water. I’m sure you’ve had the same issue trying to get sugar to dissolve in iced tea, right?

STAIN SOLVER is the same. You can get it to dissolve MUCH FASTER if you simply use hot water when you mix it up. When I use HOT tap water, it takes no more than one minute of stirring to get it all to dissolve.

PRO TIP: If you don’t get all the STAIN SOLVER to dissolve, you’re just cleaning with WATER and dilute STAIN SOLVER. You need to completely dissolve all the powder to get the magic cleaning powers to come to life.

If you’re using STAIN SOLVER to remove grass or blood stains, you can mix it in HOT water and then add some ice cubes to cool the solution back down so you don’t set those stains.

Stain Solver Survey Feedback Part One

A few days ago, you may have participated in an eye-opening experience for us. You filled out the survey about packaging options we’re considering. We’ll be addressing the results as soon as we get all of them in.

We were STUNNED by the survey results. They were not what we expected. But even more so, you may have shared other things with us that are just as important.

You spoke and we’re listening. This email is part one of a series we’re going to send out to address your feedback. Your comments were more valuable than gold itself.

Why is STAIN SOLVER So Expensive?

Here are a few representative comments we received about the cost of STAIN SOLVER:

“Reduce the price.”
“Needs to be less expensive.”

I think you get the picture. We want to address the cost issue because we feel you may not be aware of all that’s in play.

1. Stain Solver is the most expensive oxygen bleach you can buy because we put the most amount of expensive active ingredient in it than our competitors. This means you need to use more of the also-ran products to get the same result you get with a smaller amount of STAIN SOLVER. You may think you’re saving money with a competitive product, but you could be spending more. You may be using TOO MUCH STAIN SOLVER to clean things. Start trying to experiment and use less and less to see if you get the desired result. STAIN SOLVER is ultra-concentrated.

2. The costs of manufacturing STAIN SOLVER, packaging it, and shipping it are going up each quarter. You’d be stunned by what we have to pay to ship the product to you. Our simple sample size, the 0.4-pounder, costs over $4 to ship and the price you pay for that product including shipping is just $11.95. Think of that. Over 33% of the cost is in shipping! And we’re getting the discounted commercial rate from the US Post Office. Shipping it by UPS or FedEx would cost a minimum of $8.00.

3. STAIN SOLVER gets cheaper the more you buy. If price is an issue for you, you might consider getting a larger size and freezing what you don’t need right away. When kept cold or even frozen, STAIN SOLVER can last indefinitely.

When you buy our 2.2-pound size, you pay $13.35 per pound. When you buy a 9.2-pound size, your cost per pound drops to $8.44. Purchase the 5-gallon container, and the price drops to just $3.46 per pound. WOWZA!

For years, we’ve absorbed many of the price increases of the containers, the double-corrugated shipping boxes, the manufacturing, etc. Shipping costs are going through the roof. Each time gasoline goes up at the pump for you, we get hit with a fuel surcharge by UPS or FedEx.

We’re doing everything possible to reduce costs to you, but it gets harder and harder each week.

Consider spreading the word to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, relatives, etc. and buy the 45-pound size. Split it up and you’ll be getting STAIN SOLVER for a price per pound almost as low as the poor-quality competitive products we have to fight against each day.

The next message you’ll get in a few days will deal with getting STAIN SOLVER to dissolve fast and with little effort. We’re going to remind you of your high school chemistry class and when you last had a glass of iced tea.

Thanks for your trust, your business, and your understanding of the challenges we face making sure STAIN SOLVER is available to you.

I NEED Your Help & Toilet Tank Cleaning

I need your help if you’d be kind enough to offer it.

I’ve set a lofty goal to double the size of the STAIN SOLVER business in months, not years.


There are two easy things you might be able to do.

First, if you have friends, relatives, co-workers, etc., who might benefit from one of these emails I send to you, please FORWARD it to them.

Second, if you spend time on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., you might start uploading before and after photos or simply posting how STAIN SOLVER really works to clean this or that around your house.

The most powerful way to do this is within a Facebook group. There are tens of thousands of groups on Facebook and I guarantee you there’s one or two dedicated to your hobby whatever it might be.

Did you know there are groups that are dedicated to just cleaning? Here are just a few of them where folks like you SHARE great cleaning tricks and secrets. Look how many belong to the top group. WOW!!!

Facebook Cleaning Groups

If you are on Facebook, you might consider JOINING the group and then start to share things you’ve cleaned with STAIN SOLVER.

That would be an enormous help. I’m not allowed to join the group for all the obvious reasons.

Cleaning tips and success stories MUST BE ORGANIC and originate from folks like you, not from companies.

To join any of the groups you see above, just type the name of the group in the Facebook search bar and hit RETURN on your device. The group will show up and then click the JOIN button.

Toilet Tank Cleaning

When I was growing up, my wonderful mother used to save one-gallon Clorox bottles. She filled them with fresh water after rinsing out the Clorox. She stored them under our concrete wash sink in the basement. She probably had 10 or 15 of these bottles.

Every now and then, I’d have to help empty them and put in fresh water. Each time I’d make fun of her thinking it was nuts to store water and I asked her why.

“Well, Timmy, if the water pipe in the street breaks, we’ll have enough water to wash up and cook with.”

I thought that was crazy as all my years there had never been a day when water didn’t come out of the faucet.

Well, one day it didn’t. The water main broke in the street one winter day. Mom’s wisdom and diligence saved the day!

Did you know that the water that goes into your toilet tank is the SAME WATER you DRINK from your kitchen faucet?

Yep, it’s the SAME WATER. I’ve been a master plumber since age 29 and believe me, it’s the SAME WATER.

You can use the toilet tank water in an emergency, but it’s far less GROSS if you make sure the toilet tank is always clean.

It’s so easy to clean a toilet tank with STAIN SOLVER. I created a new page on the STAIN SOLVER website yesterday showing how to do it.

clean toilet tank

That photo is my clean toilet tank. That slight ring you see just requires some touch-up scrubbing. I was so excited after seeing how clean it was after the first attempt, I had to take this photo!

Wait until you see the BEFORE photo and the DURING photo as STAIN SOLVER is doing LOTS of the scrubbing for me.

Realize this particular toilet tank had NEVER BEEN CLEANED in TWENTY YEARS!!!!

Thanks again if you can start sharing STAIN SOLVER success stories far and wide so we can grow the company as fast as possible.
