Woolite’s campaign shows consumers how to take horror out of washing clothes
PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Laundry detergent brand Woolite is highlighting the horror of dirty clothes in its latest campaign.
The brand, owned by Reckitt Benckiser, has tapped horror film director and heavy metal musician Rob Zombie to direct a TV ad for its campaign, "The Torturer," which shows consumers how Woolite can "save clothes from torture" by effectively washing clothes, while caring for all types of clothes, the company said. The ad, which premiered Thursday on Woolite’s Facebook page, also will make its debut in movie theaters and on television next month.
"We want consumers to see Woolite as they’ve never seen it before and to realize it’s not just for delicates — all of their clothes deserve to be cleaned with care," said Jiri Kulik, general manager of U.S. household marketing at Reckitt Benckiser. "Our goal is to show consumers that other detergents may be ‘torturing’ their wardrobe by leaving dimensional changes like shrinking or fading all in a bold, eye-opening manner. Reckitt Benckiser is known for encouraging innovation and thinking outside the box to change the competitive landscape, which is exactly what we’ve done here."

Rockin’ Green’s laundry detergent products to tout new scent, packaging
SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Rockin’ Green has revamped its laundry detergent products inside and out.
The company said that its Soft, Classic and Hard Rock formulas will feature a new scent and packaging. The company said it is replacing one of its original scents, called Plain Green Tea’s, with a scent called Earth, Wind and Orchids. What’s more, the standard packaging for the laundry detergents have been redesigned with a new look and also will use less material.
What’s more, Rockin’ Green said that its Funk Rock product, which is an ammonia bouncer, will be available in a printed, 16-oz. stand-up pouch with a zipper for more convenient use and storage. Rockin’ Green’s Shake It Ups also will be packaged in a printed stand-up pouch, but will feature a spout instead of a zipper.
Rockin’ Green said that its remixed versions of the laundry detergent products are gentle for longevity, safer for sensitive skin and better cleaning power.
The new Rockin’ Green remixed versions, as well as Earth, Wind and Orchids scent, will be available in store and online this week, with new packaging rolling out next month.
