Consumer Preferred Fragrances Enhance the Car Wash Experience and Provide Added Value

March 21, 2011

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ecolab Inc. today introduced its new Blue Coral® Foaming Fragrances, a unique line of air fresheners for the car wash environment that enhance the wash experience. Designed for the full-serve and express exterior conveyor professional car washes, the new fragrances were developed to provide additional consumer value and a point of differentiation for operators.

Today's car wash consumers appreciate getting more value for the money they spend, and providing them the best overall experience is part of delivering that value. Car wash owner / operators using Blue Coral Foaming Fragrances report the new Ecolab fragrance products help set their wash apart from their competitors and give the consumers the heightened experience and value they are looking for.

The foaming fragrances introduce a new product category for Ecolab Vehicle Care, designed to fill a gap identified through ongoing industry research.
