CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the trusted official supplier of cleaning products for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, P&G Professional™ products helped keep the event facilities and athlete and family housing ready and clean for the athletes and spectators who visited each day. In fact, P&G Professional’s trusted brands, including Dawn®, Spic and Span® and Tide®, were used to clean up after more than five million people, more than two million square feet of surfaces and more than 30,000 linens each and every day.
