Kick Off the Holiday Season by Sharing Your Most Bleachable Moment and You Could Win $20,000
NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In-law invasions, holiday hoopla havocs, dinner debacles. No matter what you're getting ready to celebrate, you're not immune to the messes that seem to always accompany holiday cheer. In fact, sometimes the "yuck" is so over the top that the only solution is to reach for the bleach. Clorox calls these "Bleachable Moments." They happen all year, but the holiday season is full of them; it's enough to leave anyone "holidazed."
This year, Clorox, in partnership with actress Busy Philipps, is coming to the rescue and teaming up to kick off the third year of Bleach It Away™ with some comic relief and a chance to win $20,000.* Philipps and The Messy Melodies, Clorox's own band of comedic holiday carolers, will hit the streets of New York City to bring holiday Bleachable Moments to life through song. And, if that's not enough, people everywhere can enjoy the Messy Melodies' greatest hits – and share the cheer – at www.BleachItAway.com.
"This is a really exciting holiday season for me because my family has grown since last year, bringing lots of new holiday memories and loads of new Bleachable Moments," said Busy Philipps, actress. "Lucky for me Clorox gets it – they understand that sharing and laughing helps you get past the messes a whole lot easier. That's why I'm excited to help Clorox Bleach It Away today in New York!"
