SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — Black Diamond Stoneworks’ cleaning products will soon be seen on the shelves of Walmart across the country.
Based in San Clemente, Calif., Black Diamond Stoneworks manufactures products to clean and seal natural stone surfaces, maintain and restore wood and laminate floors, remove pesky spots and traffic areas on carpets, and eliminate unwanted pet and human odors. Two of the company’s most popular products, Black Diamond Granite Plus! Cleaner & Sealer and Black Diamond Stoneworks' Wood & Laminate Floor Cleaner with PS3 will be distributed through Walmart.
The move to the mass-merchanise retailer is in conjunction with a January announcement by Walmart to spend $50 billion on U.S. products over the next 10 years to bring into its stores. A recent USA Today report found more than 80% of Americans are willing to pay more for products if it carries the "Made in the USA" tagline and helps to support jobs in the United States, rather than purchase products made abroad.
For Black Diamond Stoneworks, the move means big distribution.
“Our customers really appreciate the convenience of buying our products from Walmart,” said Stacey Morrow, co-owner of Black Diamond Stoneworks. “We’re delighted to be able to say that our Black Diamond Granite Plus! Cleaner & Sealer will be available in more than 1,900 Walmarts across the country,” she added. The Black Diamond Stoneworks' Wood & Laminate Floor Cleaner with PS3 product will be distributed in more than 100 Walmart stores initially.
Black Diamond Stoneworks' Wood & Laminate Floor Cleaner with PS3 can be used to clean both natural wood floors and laminate floors without leaving streaks or dulling residue. The new formula includes the new PS3 additive, a triple-action poly shield.
Black Diamond Granite Plus! Cleaner & Sealer is a safe, pH-neutral cleaner enhanced with the company’s NEX-GEN Granite Sealer. Granite Plus! Cleaner & Sealer also is safe for use on marble, travertine, limestone, ceramic and quartz surfaces.
“People just don’t enjoy cleaning,” Morrow said. “We understand that. Our products are designed to be easy, effective and safe to have in your home and around your family. And best of all, they work!”
