ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- If consumers feel like they've spent much of 2020 scrubbing, sanitizing and hunting for cleaning supplies, they're right – so much so that a new survey* commissioned by Scotch-Brite™ Brand revealed that 51 percent of Americans have cleaning necessities on their holiday wish lists. That's why Scotch-Brite™ Brand, the maker of powerful cleaning tools for an extraordinary clean in every room of the home, teamed up with actress, author, mom and cleaning aficionado Busy Philipps to launch a one-of-a-kind Holiday Gift Guide featuring playful cleaning-inspired gifts and cleaning supplies – some of the most sought-after items of the year.
From disinfectant-themed pajamas and actual disinfectant, to bedazzled toilet scrubbers and "Cleaning is My Cardio" t-shirts, consumers can help spread holiday cheer instead of germs this season, helping provide a much-needed fresh start this holiday season. The gift guide also includes 3M's TB Quat Disinfectant Ready-to-Use Cleaner, which was recently approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for kill claims against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The best part? All Scotch-Brite™ Brand Holiday Gift Guide items are free, while supplies last through December 23, 2020.
"Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that disinfectant was the hot item of the year, but it is!" said Philipps. "The Scotch-Brite™ Brand Holiday Gift Guide was created knowing that everyone's holiday wish lists were looking different this year. Not only is the brand offering tried and true cleaning tools and disinfectant, they're inspiring people to have some fun while they scrub and sanitize – something that isn't always super exciting."
"Given the importance of cleaning in 2020, it's no wonder that two-thirds of Americans claim they feel relief or thrill when they see cleaning supplies stocked on store shelves," said Beth Edinger, Vice President of 3M's Home Care Division. "We introduced the Scotch-Brite™ Brand Holiday Gift Guide to not only help support home care and consumers' wellness, but also bring a smile to people's faces amid an incredibly challenging and stressful time."

SCOTCH-BRITE™ BRAND CLEANING SURVEY RESULTS
While 2020 has proven to be a year filled with continuous changes, one thing has remained constant – the need to clean. That's why it's no surprise that:
- 70 percent of Americans agree that keeping their homes clean was more challenging than ever this year, and 66 percent stated it is harder to keep up with cleaning than it is to get kids to pay attention to virtual learning.
- Two-thirds of Americans (67 percent) admit to feeling relief or thrill when they finally see fully stocked store shelves of disinfectants and sanitizers.
- 82 percent of Americans expect to get gifts that are less useful than cleaning supplies.
