OAKLAND, Calif., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Diane Amos has had many roles throughout her career as an actress, inspirational speaker, a winning game show contestant, stand-up comedian and a wife and mother of two.

"It's amazing how fast time flies when you're having fun," said Pine-Sol spokesperson Diane Amos. "The last 20 years have been such a blessing, and I'm thankful that I have been able to represent a brand that I truly believe in. I'm most thankful for those moments of inspiration, laughter and encouragement that I've shared with women around the country. That's the power of Pine-Sol, baby!"
Diane has long expressed that her strength comes from an unshakable bond with her mother, Pearl, who was also a user of Pine-Sol® Cleaners.

"That strength has stayed with me in my life, and as the Pine-Sol Lady – a title that I've carried proudly for 20 years."
