Hello Life, Goodbye Stains contest celebrates life’s joys without worries of cleaning

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., August 20, 2013 — Summer is wrapping up, vacations are coming to an end, kids are going back to school and familiar routines are resuming. Busy schedules leave very little time for cleaning and, for many, cause angst about clean-up. With trusted products from BISSELL Homecare Inc., consumers can continue living that summertime carefree lifestyle year-round, enjoying life’s spontaneous moments complete with messes and all. As such, BISSELL is hosting a “Hello Life, Goodbye Stains Celebration” showcasing the good times life brings when cleaning is not of concern.

“Let’s be honest, given the choice between cleaning and having fun, cleaning takes the back seat. Still, cleaning is a reality and BISSELL makes the process quick and easy,” said Jamie Wilcox, senior brand manager at BISSELL. “Our deep cleaning machines tackle messes, speedily remove dirt, spots and stains and leave carpets and rugs fresh, clean and ready for life’s next memorable moment.”
To capture the “no worries” attitude about cleaning, BISSELL is conducting a “Hello Life, Goodbye Stains Celebration” contest on Facebook. Now through September 15, BISSELL is offering its Facebook fans the chance to win prizes they can enjoy knowing they don’t have to worry about cleaning spots and stains on carpets and upholstery.
