In an effort to help consumers keep their kitchens and other parts of the home clean, Better Home & Gardens has released its first Clean House Awards.
Featuring more than 40 cleaners and tools, the complete list of products appears in the April issue of Better Homes & Gardens now on newsstands and online.
“After spending more time at home than ever this past year, keeping our spaces and belongings clean can be a real challenge,” said Stephen Orr, Better Homes & Gardens Editor in Chief. “Better Homes & Gardens wanted to highlight cleaning products and tips that are proven effective in our homes, and also safe for the environment.”
BH&G editors studied nearly 200 new products then tested the 100 finalists they hoped would revolutionize home cleaning. Multiple editors used each product, comparing the contenders to each other and their previous cleaning routines in order to select over 40 Clean House Award Winners.
