Is Sheila Shine a Disinfectant?
So…seriously…is Sheila Shine a disinfectant?
We’re asked this question a lot! And the answer is no, however it is the perfect follow-up after your items are disinfected! Sheila Shine is a cleaner and polish that is amazing for stainless steel but it does not disinfect.
We’ve written several informative articles about recovering your assets and safely opening your business when the pandemic reaches an end. With many great disinfectants on the market, it is a rather easy task to find one that will suit your needs. Simply disinfecting your commercial kitchen, elevator banks, handrails, and other steel accessories in your business just isn’t enough.
There’s a phrase we love to use… PUBLIC PERCEPTION. You can disinfect all you want, but if that elevator door doesn’t appear clean, it’s streaky or has fingerprints, all of your safety efforts are for naught because John Q. Public doesn’t think your elevator is clean or safe.
Here’s an example:
You decide to have dinner with your business guest at a nice restaurant. When your plates are set in front of you, you or your guest notice one isn’t very clean. Then you notice the silverware is questionable. Several things happen at this point. You will ALWAYS remember the restaurant served dirty dishes and silverware. Your client is disappointed in your selection of restaurants. The restaurant will more than likely suffer a couple of bad reviews on social media and more than likely you will mention the story to your friends and family. No matter how good the food is, this particular restaurant will suffer your perception that cleanliness isn’t their first priority. Should there be a next time, you will scrutinize the glassware, the silverware, and the plates because your remembered experience will stay with you. This is what we call public perception.
This potential issue isn’t limited to restaurants. It applies to pretty much every type of business. Handrails in a casino, stainless steel appliances in a commercial kitchen, elevators in an office building or hotel are not exempt from becoming a bad consumer experience or perception if the proper care is not taken to ensure cleanliness and to understand that a positive experience will work on the good side of the publics’ perception of your establishment.
So how does this type of scenario apply to Sheila Shine?
The Sheila Shine product appeals to both your sense of sight and your sense of smell. Sheila Shine is a chlorinated solvent, meaning it breaks things down, with a fresh wintergreen mint scent. It is so powerful that it dissolves build-up, shines, and coats in a fast one-step application. It prevents things from adhering to surfaces. Sheila Shine is an oil-based solution rather than a water-based one. This allows the product to adhere better to surfaces and create a wonderful shine that you have come to expect from Sheila Shine! It is the most effective and recognized stainless steel polish, cleaner, and surface preservative available. We are the industry leader in stainless steel cleaners and the most asked for by name metal polish used by cleaning professionals, commercial buildings, institutions, and homeowners alike.
And while Sheila Shine may not be a disinfectant, it is something that’s necessary to have in your cleaning arsenal for public perception!
