Multiple award winning painter and decorator, Wayne de Wet, carried out a hugely successful pilot college demo day at Lowestoft College, Suffolk. Wayne was very busy demonstrating products, tools & equipment with the view of helping the next generation of painters and decorators. Naturally, Big Wipes are part of his every-day painting and decorating kit and the heavy duty cleaning wipes ensured that the students and lecturers alike could keep their hands clean during the training day.
The truth is that everyone in the trade gets their hands, tools or surfaces dirty and most of the filth simply doesn’t come off with soap and water. The Big Wipes range of cleaning products is unique in its ability to quickly and effectively remove a vast variety of modern construction and maintenance products such as solvent and water based paints, PU expanding foam, silicone, acrylic sealants, epoxy fillers, adhesives, grease, oil and so much more. As they are completely portable, Big Wipes antibacterial wipes can be kept close to hand to remove this muck before it gets a chance to fully cure.
Wayne said, “Being able to show painting and decorating students, who are our country’s future, what is new in the industry, is very dear to me. I came up with the idea of a Demo day to showcase the very best of what I use in my everyday work.”
He added, “The passion to learn was very evident from the students. I see quite a few that already are exhibiting the makings of first class trades-people. The pilot day was a massive success.”
Kevyn Stow, Painting and Decorating lecturer at Lowestoft College, said: “It’s important for our students to meet a range of people from the industry and learn some of the more unusual techniques used within the profession. As well as picking up some useful hints and tips, it gives them a better understanding of just how diverse a career within the industry can be.”
