Moms Prefer A Clean House To Breakfast In Bed

Stocks in this article: MMM

French toast and freshly squeezed orange juice is sweet, but a clean home is what moms really dream about for Mother’s Day. According to a recent survey 1, seventy-five percent (75%) of moms would prefer a clean home on Mother’s Day to being served breakfast in bed. In addition, sixty percent (60%) of moms would most prefer a clean house over other gift options like candy, flowers and a card. Scotch-Brite™ understands that a clean home feels good and this Mother’s Day they are calling on dads and kids to give the gift of clean.

“Moms think that clean feels good, which isn’t a surprise as many of us at 3M are moms and a clean home is a huge treat,” said Mariana Quiroga, marketing and sales director for 3M’s Home Care business. “Dads and kids don’t need to worry—Scotch-Brite has made it easier than ever to get that ‘feel good clean’. Almost as easy as buying flowers, Moms can finally get what they really want for Mother’s Day—that clean home feeling and a break from chores.”
