Mr. Clean Hosts Big Yard Sale

September 11, 2008

A sale of epic proportions needs a big time cleaner, and Mr. Clean came to the rescue. The P&G brand served as the official cleaner of the World’s Longest Yard Sale, the 21st annual event that stretches 630 miles from Ohio to Alabama.

On Aug. 8-9, Mr. Clean Cleaning Booths were situated in Clarkrange, TN and Covington, KY staffed with crews ready to scrub and clean items brought by local residents for sale and purchase. The cleaning crews used several Mr. Clean products including the Magic Eraser, Power Multi-Surface Wipes and All Purpose Cleaner. The company also distributed samples.

“In today’s economy, The World’s Longest Yard Sale provides a great opportunity for folks to trade or shop for ‘new’ additions to their house,” said Shannon Taylor, brand manager at P&G. “Mr. Clean is proud to lend a cleaning hand at this huge event by tidying items for sale and preparing them for a new home.”
