Gift of time contest captures spirit of added time for play, not cleaning

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 4, 2013 — Daylight Savings Time is right around the corner, and in today’s fast-paced world, losing one hour can make a big difference when juggling busy schedules. BISSELL Homecare Inc. understands that reducing cleaning routine time is paramount. To help consumers maximize their time so more is spent enjoying life’s memorable moments rather than cleaning up after life’s many messes, BISSELL introduces the CleanView® vacuum with OnePass™ Technology. CleanView makes it quick and easier to get through the cleaning routine and straight to the good times life brings.

"We want families to enjoy the family room during movie night and sports fans to cheer as loud as they can for their favorite team without dreading the clean-up that inevitably comes with these moments," said Phil Morgan, brand manager, BISSELL. "The OnePass Technology with CleanView provides a bit of ease of mind - taking vacuuming from a chore to a quick and easy item to check off the clean-up to-do list."

The BISSELL CleanView delivers great cleaning using its powerful suction and innovative brush roll which cleans on initial pass*. Plus, the vacuum’s lightweight design is modern, uncomplicated and easy to maneuver. On-board attachments like a 4 in. TurboBrush® tool for cleaning stairs, upholstery and hard-to-reach places, a 10 in. crevice tool for nooks, crannies and corners and an upholstery tool and 11 in. extension wand make cleaning up leftover bits of chips and popcorn a breeze.

To capture the spirit of more time for play, BISSELL is hosting the Gift of Time Contest. Now through March 9, BISSELL is offering its Facebook fans the chance to win back some of the time they’ll lose when clocks move forward for the start of Daylight Savings. On March 10, BISSELL will award a brand new CleanView vacuum with OnePass Technology to 23 lucky winners – one an hour for each of the 23 hours that day. To enter, participants will be asked to share in 200 words or less why they could use more time in their day, and what fun things they would do with the gift of time if they had it.

The BISSELL CleanView vacuum with OnePass Technology is available for a suggested retail price of $79.99 at and at mass retailers including and Target.
