My Dirty Jobs, the newest entrant in the household cleaning market, to launch broad line of heavy-duty cleaning products, inspired by Discovery Channel series Dirty Jobs; line will debut in March 2012
February 22, 2012
– My Dirty Jobs, the newest entrant in the household cleaning market, is launching a broad line of heavy-duty cleaning products formulated to handle your dirtiest jobs. The line is inspired by the Emmy(R)-nominated Discovery Channel series Dirty Jobs, part of Discovery Communications, the world’s number one nonfiction media company. Host Mike Rowe travels the country showcasing hard working men and women who have some of the country’s messiest occupations.
The new line will debut at Walmart and online in March 2012. My Dirty Jobs cleaning products are packed with a heavy-duty, oxygen-powered stain remover, Dirty Jobs Complete, which is produced with an original formula featuring an increased concentration of oxygen-powered enzymes, making it one of the most advanced and powerful stain-removers on the market.
“Thanks to Dirty Jobs, I’ve left a filthy trail through all 50 states and along the way I’ve met some of the best people I know, including farmers, miners and tradesmen; people who aren’t afraid to get dirty and who make civilized life possible for the rest of us,” said Rowe. “Celebrating their work and making it easier to clean up at the end of the day was a great motivation to support and launch this line of cleaning products. The fact that they really work and are affordable made the decision a no-brainer.”
Developed in consultation with Rowe, the marketing campaign for Dirty Jobs cleaning products will emphasize that whether work or play, it is okay to get dirty because at the end of the day it washes off. When Mike’s not busy getting dirty, he spends time promoting the importance of the skilled trades. His central mission executed through mikeroweWORKS is to continue to highlight our country’s need for a skilled workforce to make civilized life possible for all of us. Both mikeroweWORKS and the mikeroweWORKS Foundation will be a key part of the campaign.
Later this year, additional Dirty Jobs cleaning products will be available at major retail locations and specialty stores nationwide, including a bleach-powered bathroom cleaner, an oxygen-powered foaming cleanser, a carpet spray aerosol, a multi-surface cleaner, a laundry spot-remover and a degreaser and hand sanitizer.
“We have developed Heavy-Duty Dirty Jobs Cleaning Products to combat the dirtiest jobs in America,” said President and Co-founder of My Dirty Jobs, Adam Lerner. “With a strong line-up of products, we naturally sought out the dirtiest guy on the planet, Mike Rowe, to help us get a Dirty Jobs cleaning product under every sink!”
“When you think of the show Dirty Jobs several things come to mind– dirt and mud with an overall giant mess to clean up,” said Elizabeth Bakacs, Vice President of Licensing for Discovery Channel. “The goal of this line is to provide consumers with a complete line of products unlike any other on the shelf today, all designed to make life’s everyday messes a little easier to tackle.”
