Brand names

    There were two products that my father-in-law loved, BFI Power and Dr. Tichenor's.  I would like to publish a hub about our experiences with him and those two products.  What are the guidelines about using brand names?  I have no desire to either help or hurt either product, but it's a neat story.  Everything that I would say about either is good and I don't kow why either company would care, but I don't want to have problems.  I would also like to include a photo of an ancient container of BFI Powder.  What are anyone's thoughts?  I have absolutely no affiliation with either product.  I have searched for info about brand names but no come up on anything specific to a hub like this.
    Appreciate any input.

      You can use brand names

    Thanks for your answer.  Do you or anyone else have any ideas about the photograph of the old container of BFI Powder?  I know I sound paranoid, but I don't want to get anyone going.
    thanks!

      Well, I wrote a hub about a product and took a photograph of that product. I am pretty sure it can be used under fair use, I'm sure they won't mind unless you are attacking them.

        Thank you so much.  Well, it's published so.....
        It's very much high praise.  My father-in-law love them both and it's a standing joke in our family. 
        Thank you again.
