We had a customer who got newspaper print on her vinyl tablecloth. She purchased one of our light colored vinyl tablecloths and the newspaper ink stain was very visible. Even with all our electronic technology, people still like to read their daily newspaper over their breakfast table!

None of the usual cleaning products such as rubbing alcohol, or soap helped her. We decided to do our own experiment to see which cleaning product will work to remove newspaper print. After some trial and error the two products which worked the best were Armor All  Multi  Purpose Cleaning Wipes 25ct or Goo Gone 8oz Liquid Bottle which can be found at Wal-Mart, Auto Zone, or your local hardware store. We were so happy to be able to help her out and we are happy to know that our customers can continue reading there newspaper at their table if they wish. Happy eating and reading!

school cafeteriaSummer is winding down. While we are still basking in the sunshine, and frolicking in the sand, many principles, teachers and staff are feverishly preparing for back to school. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes and the staff must do their utmost to ensure that the transition back to school is as smooth as possible.

Schools have a lunchroom or cafeteria where school lunch is offered. Have you ever wondered why schools offer a school lunch program or when and why the school lunch program was created? President Harry S. Truman began the national school lunch program in 1946 after reading a study that revealed many young men had been rejected from the World War II draft due to medical conditions caused by childhood malnutrition. Since that time more than 180 million lunches have been served to American children who attend either a public school or a non-profit private school.

In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson extended the program by offering breakfast to school children. It began as a two years pilot program for children in rural areas and those living in poorer neighborhoods. It was believed that these children would have to skip breakfast in order to catch the bus for the long ride to school. There were also concerns that the poorer families could not always afford to feed their children breakfast. Johnson believed, like many of us today, that children would do better in school if they had a good breakfast to start their day. The pilot was such a success that it was decided the program should continue. By 1975, breakfast was being offered to all children in public or non-profit private school. This change was made because educators felt that more children were skipping breakfast due to both parent being in the workforce.

Lunchrooms and cafeterias need tablecloths that can wipe up spills easily. They need to withstand the daily use. Vinyl tablecloths are reusable and long lasting. They make a great choice for schools and cafeterias.

Lunch-Room

Since breakfast and lunch are so important, schools are trying hard to make a nutritious as well as tasty school lunch menu that appeal to children. This way they can concentrate, do well in school, and become our future leaders.

Every year at this time of year I look forward to an annual camping trip. It’s a wonderful feeling to take a break from your hectic busy life and enjoy the serenity of the forest and nature. You want to pack lightly yet you don’t want to be stuck camping without any of the essentials. Here are some quick ideas for a great camping experience:

You need to be organized if you want to have a good trip. Make a camping check list before your trip so you don’t make a mistake of bringing food for the barbecue without the grill or bringing a tent without the stakes.

Figure out if this will be a backpacking trip or one that you’ll take a car or RV. Many more items can go into an automobile that in a backpack.

Think ahead. You need to know where you are going so you can plan accordingly. Bring insect repellent for areas with ticks or other insects. Bring rain gear for rainy or wet areas and warm clothing if the weather will get cooler.
