Research indicated that while Pine-Sol was a very well-known brand, it was seen as somewhat dated - especially among younger consumers. What’s more, it was seen primarily as a cleaner used only for "tough jobs." We need to carve out a new positioning. Realizing that women have very different ideas of what is "clean," we discovered an opportunity to create a new level of clean - the "Thorough Clean." Using simple real-life scenarios that women could relate to, we showed them why they really need a Thorough Clean.
