Weiman’s 2008 "Maid for a Year" Contest is Revealing Strong Consumer Desires for a Clean Home

Consumers can enter Weiman's “Maid for a Year” contest through July 31 at www.weiman.com/contest.

Chicago, IL, June 04, 2008 --(PR.com)-- What does a clean home mean to consumers? This is precisely what Weiman Products is asking consumers as part of its 2008 “Maid for a Year” Contest. Not surprisingly, more than 80 percent of the 1160 entries already submitted show a strong emotional connection to a clean home.

Reflecting a theme that is consistent across the United States, a California contest entrant says: “The good feeling of clean is knowing that I have taken good care of my family, and that they live in a safe, healthy environment.”

According to Elizabeth Scott, M.S., About.com’s stress management guide, two of the key steps to making and keeping your home a sanctuary are to “clean regularly” and “hire a helper.”

“That’s the whole goal of our contest,” said Carl DeMasi, Weiman Products president and CEO. “We want to help consumers achieve the good feeling of clean while helping a few lucky ones with free maid service for a year.”

Still Time to Enter
It is not too late enter for a chance to win a free maid service for a year. Weiman Product’s annual “Maid for a Year” Contest runs until July 31, 2008, and will award five U.S. residents free house cleaning services from Merry Maids. Consumers can enter by logging onto http://www.weiman.com/contest. Winners will be announced by mid-August 2008.

All U.S. residents 18 years and older can submit a 250-word or less essay between May 1 and July 31, 2008. Entries may be submitted online at http://www.weiman.com/contest or mailed to Weiman “Maid for a Year” Contest, 755 Tri-State Parkway, Gurnee, IL 60031. Essays must describe what the feeling of clean means to the entrant and why he or she needs and deserves maid service. Essays will be judged by an independent judging organization on the following criteria: the description of what “the good feeling of clean” means to the entrant, why the entrant needs/deserves maid service and the originality and creativity of the essay. Entries are limited to one per person and purchase is not necessary to enter or win. Official rules and regulations are available at http://www.weiman.com/contest.
