Procter & Gamble currently competes in a total of 37 product categories. Tide detergent is one of the 25 billion-dollar grooming brands of Procter & Gamble.
The branded consumer products company recently introduced a new Tide Oxi multi-purpose stain remover. The launch of the new multipurpose cleaning product coincides with the spring cleaning season when most Americans deep clean their homes. Tide Oxi multi-purpose stain remover is now available across the U.S at a suggested retail price of $12.99 for a 7.5 lb tub.
This new cleaning product has been designed for cleaning outside the laundry room. There is a growing demand for products that make cleaning efficient and effortless.
Oxi Multi-Purpose Stain Remover uses peracid, a stronger form of bleach to remove stubborn stains. However, peracid is a color-safe bleach and therefore is ideal for cleaning clothes as well as rough stains found in bathrooms, patios, stairs and closets.
