RACINE, Wis., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For 40 years, Scrubbing Bubbles® has been a hardworking and helpful ally in the bathroom; and now with the power of fantastik®, the brand is ready to tackle America's toughest kitchen messes. The hard working formulas combine the ease and effectiveness of Scrubbing Bubbles® with the grease-fighting power of fantastik® to make cleaning easier.
The Scrubbing Bubbles® Dirty Work Index™ survey, a comprehensive study that scrubs the data on women's and men's attitudes related to how and why they clean their homes, found that four out of five (80 percent) women maintain a clean kitchen by cleaning it daily1. With both cleaners combined, consumers can cut through tough grease and grime without all the physical effort. Plus, the cleaners are all-purpose, tackling many surfaces so that one product can do the job of many, saving time and money.
"The Dirty Work Index™ survey shows that men and women agree the bathroom and kitchen are the most difficult areas to clean2, so expanding to the kitchen is a natural step for Scrubbing Bubbles®," says Kelly M. Semrau, Senior Vice President – Global Corporate Affairs, Communication and Sustainability at SC Johnson. "SC Johnson is dedicated to giving consumers quality products they can trust to get the job done, which is why we've brought these two trusted cleaning brands together."
