Chicago, Illinois, Spring 2012- Earlier this year, Viatek Consumer Products Group created quite the buzz as they geared up to launch four new products at the International Home and Housewares Show. Amongst the impressive arsenal of products developed by Lou Lentine and the Viatek team was the Clean Spin 360 Duo Mop, a product recognized as a finalist for the IHA Innovation Award.
Viatek's Clean Spin 360 was one of the 400 entries received and judged by a panel of industry experts, and housewares merchants from retailers such as Target, JCPenney, Sears, The Container Store, and Cook's Warehouse. "We are please to honor exhibitor's cutting-edge innovations. This is an important addition to the show that increases the visibility of these innovative new products and the companies behind them," said Phil Brandi, IHA president.
So what was the secret that landed the Clean Spin 360 as finalist for the coveted IHA Innovation Award? The Clean Spin 360's innovative design and functionality! Designed with two interchangeable mop heads; one round with thousands of microfiber strands and one rectangular with a thick microfiber pad, the Clean Spin 360 traps dirt, dust, and liquids without dripping or spreading a mess. Floors are not only clean, but dry in half the time.
But that's only the half of it. This innovative design allows you to clean and dry the Clean Spin 360 on one simple step. When it's time to wring, simply place the 360 Duo in the Spin Bucket, pump the foot pedal and watch as it moves at over 1,000 RPMs. Centripetal force spins the mop head clean while transferring grit, grime, and the like into the water below. This ingenious design also eliminates the age-old question of what to do with the wet mop head when the job is done. Simply pop off the reusable microfiber ring or pad, toss in the was and never worry about dripping across your clean floors again!
Each year the International Home and Housewares show features thousands of exhibitors from 125 countries and over 60,00 total attendees.
