Steel Clean By Better Bio
Industry News

David just finished up speaking in Orlando at Coverings regarding stone restoration and in January also for the 11th year in a row was teaching classes at Surfaces/stone expo. David believes that education is everything. He feels that the clients never get enough education about their investments and thus cause's damage or neglect because of bad or no information.


Porcelain tiles:

One of the large problems in the tile industry today is some porcelain tiles. They are becoming very hard to clean and in some tiles, they have some sort of burnished wax or tropical on them. David has contacts all over the U.S. and everybody is having to be extra careful on the selection and testing of porcelain tiles. The biggest problem is that the manufactures are not telling their suppliers about this until it's installed or until proper testing is done. Trust me on this one! This one is not over and there will be much more into when it becomes available (Just because it's stamped with a country's name does not mean that it was really made there).

Remove the tough stems from the mushrooms and brush them with damp towel to clean. Slice the mushrooms. Chop the chicken into small pieces.

Pre-heat a large skillet or wok to high.

Add the oil to the hot pan. Add the chicken to the pan and sear the meat by stir frying for a minute or two. Add the mushrooms and cook for another minute or two. Add the salt and pepper to season, then add the garlic and ginger. Cook for a minute more. Zest the orange into the pan, then add the bell pepper bits, chopped water chestnuts and scallions. Cook for another minute, continuing to stir fry the mixture. Add the hoisin sauce and toss to coat the mixture evenly.

Transfer the chopped barbecued chicken to a serving platter and pile the quartered wedges of crisp iceberg lettuce alongside. Add the wedged oranges to the platter to garnish.

To eat, pile spoonfuls of the chicken mixture into the lettuce leaves, wrapping the lettuce around the filling and squeezing an orange wedge over it.
