LITCHFIELD, Conn., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Zero Odor, the molecular odor eliminator, received the 2012 Product of the Year Award in the category of Household Cleaning Products at the awards ceremony last night in New York City.

Product of the Year is the world's largest consumer-voted program recognizing the year's most innovative consumer products. In the US, over 50,000 shoppers participated in the survey.

"We are excited to win Product of the Year in Household Cleaning," said Jim Huffstetler, one of the founders of Zero Odor. "It's wonderful to learn that 50,000 shoppers recognize Zero Odor as the leading innovator in our category."

The Product of the Year Award recognizes Zero Odor for its advanced technology platform in odor control. Zero Odor works on the molecular level. When you spray Zero Odor, whether in the air or on a surface, it seeks out and bonds with odor molecules, turning them into non-odor molecules. Once the bonding process occurs, it is irreversible. So any odor that Zero Odor touches is gone forever.

"The Product of the Year awards are about giving consumers the platform to tell other consumers about standout products," said Colleen Kelly, Managing Director of Product of the Year USA. "Zero Odor is a terrific example of that. Here's an incredibly innovative product that our 50,000 voting shoppers have recognized as a product that other consumers should pay special attention to."
