Hi Catherine,
Well, I'd like to tell you that we have this really sophisticated system.
But then you'd never believe me again. We have labels printed up (I'll be
glad to mail you one). It has the Date and the Inspector (we have 3).When
it gets cleaned, it gets the date and initials of person who cleaned it in
red. Then, for the next 9 circs, it gets a check mark. We repeat the
process after that. It is simple and works well.
