    Rethink Your Cleaning Solutions with Dan Schmidt and Zac Miner

    Rethink Your Cleaning Solutions with Dan Schmidt and Zac Miner

    If you’re not putting much thought into your cleaning solutions, you should be. The truth is that your employees and customers care and a good choice can make a big difference in the quality of job you provide.

    Dan Schmidt is co-founder of Ageless Global, the company that created the EZ Safer Surface Cleaner and Zac Miner is their VP of Sales. The reason they created their product is that they wanted a cleaner that was safer to use, but still effective.

    The EZ Safer Surface cleaner is a product they had tested by an independent third party against the Sars-COV-2 pathogen directly and is FDA approved for surfaces with indirect and direct food contact. It’s actually a stabilized oxygenated water created to clean and disinfect.

    Their team has provided a great opportunity for our listeners and offers a 50 percent off coupon when you try the cleaner for yourself. Just use “50OFF” at checkout.
