The Night One 21.6oz Bottle of Dawn Did the Dishes for an Entire New Jersey Town

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:15:24 +0000

Family dinners are an opportunity for families to unplug and reconnect on things that are important, but dinners also mean doing the dishes. Dawn has been helping families with post-dinner clean-up for decades, but most people don’t realize that even one drop of Dawn goes a long way.

To demonstrate how far the grease-fighting power of Dawn can go, Dawn invited all of Lambertville, NJ to a town dinner and cleaned every single plate. That’s over 6,000 dishes, with just one 21.6oz bottle.

A tract of land nestled in the rural mountains of West Virginia’s eastern panhandle will soon be the workplace for hundreds of West Virginians, where they’ll be making some of the trusted P&G products you use every day.

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 21:01:18 +0000

Throws world's largest lasagna party cleaned by dishwasher

While lasagna is a favorite and popular dish, it’s also one of the toughest to clean in the dishwasher.

According to a survey the Fairy brand conducted in Israel, 80% said they wash their dishes before placing them in the dishwasher, fearing their dishwasher tablet will not effectively remove the soil. The survey also revealed that 41% are not at all happy with their dishwasher’s cleaning results.

So Fairy set out to make a bold statement about its superior cleaning power on lasagna-caked dishes by setting a new world record: World's Largest Lasagna Party Cleaned by Dishwasher.

Always Discreet Helps Make Bladder Leaks Feel Like No Big Deal

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:56:24 +0000

Bladder sensitivity is a widespread issue among women, but many who suffer from it are too embarrassed to discuss it with their doctor. While 1 in 3 women has a sensitive bladder or incontinence, only 1 in 9 uses incontinence products. And many use menstrual pads, which are not designed to manage bladder leaks.

As the global leader in feminine protection that has cared for changing feminine care needs for more than 30 years, the Always brand is extending its trusted name into the incontinence aisle with its launch of New Always Discreet.
