WILTON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wisk®, the detergent known to fight tough stains like “Ring Around the Collar™”, announces that Wisk Deep Clean was awarded #1 product of the year in the laundry category in a TNS consumer survey of product innovation by over 50,000 consumers. The brand accepted the award yesterday during a special ceremony in New York City.
Wisk’s newly reformulated Wisk Deep Clean line of detergent continues the Wisk tradition of fighting tough stains, from yesteryear’s Ring Around the Collar to the trapped body oils and sweat that make up today’s difficult laundry soils. Wisk Deep Clean goes far beyond surface stains, attacking hidden body oils and sweat some other detergents can leave behind.* The Wisk Deep Clean line is available in five powerful varieties that redefine what it means to be clean – Original, High Efficiency, Oxi Complete™, Fresh Breeze and the new Free & Pure.
“This award helps further establish Wisk Deep Clean as the brand so many already recognize for powerful cleaning,” said Bridgette Miller, senior brand manager for Wisk. “The ring isn’t just around the collar any more – it’s throughout your clothes—and we’re thrilled consumers recognized Wisk Deep Clean as an innovative solution for truly clean laundry.”
Operating in 28 countries, Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation in consumer-packaged goods. 2012 marks the fourth year that Product of the Year was conducted in the United States, with more than 50,000 American shoppers voting on products in a survey conducted by TNS, the world’s largest custom research agency.
The newly reformulated Wisk Deep Clean detergents, including Wisk Deep Clean Free & Pure, the newest addition to the Wisk Deep Clean line, will be available at key retailers nationwide beginning March/April and are available in a wide range of sizes.
