OAKLAND, Calif., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tilting. Tipping. Unscrewing, shaking, pouring and generally being frustrated. This used to be the exasperating but inevitable last step in getting to the bottom of a bottle of spray cleaner. Until now. The Clorox Company today announced its addition of SMART TUBE® TECHNOLOGY – a new technology that makes it possible for consumers to use every drop of liquid in Clorox® spray bottles, including Clorox® Clean Up®, Tilex® and Formula 409® products. Finally, the last step in finishing a bottle is just to spray.

The new SMART TUBE® TECHNOLOGY is a built-in tube that reaches all the way to the bottom of the bottle, giving consumers:

  • Freedom from frustrating workarounds to get the last bit of product; and the
  • Satisfaction of spraying every last drop.

"For years, consumers have had to put up with tilting and tipping to salvage that last little bit of liquid, and it just doesn't cut it anymore!" said Renu Mevasse, Marketing Manager, Home Care, The Clorox Company. "For the past 100 years, Clorox has been committed to providing a better cleaning experience to consumers and it was time to focus in on improving one of her key cleaning tools our spray bottles. SMART TUBE® TECHNOLOGY was the result, and we hope that adding it to our bottles lets consumers say goodbye to frustrating workarounds for getting to that last drop and makes cleaning a little bit easier."

But spraying every last drop is not the end of the innovation. Spray bottles equipped with SMART TUBE® TECHNOLOGY also feature a new, more durable trigger* that provides better coverage and control and a smoother pull that makes it easier to dispense the liquid with less effort, which results in a more premium spray experience.
