Bissell Homecare has been named the winner of the prestigious 2012 Visionary Award, presented at the VISION 2012 Consumer Products Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana this week. Bissell’s Stomp ‘N Go Lifting Pad is designed to make cleaning carpet stains easy and simple.

Now in its eleventh year, the Visionary Award is given to a new consumer product that utilizes nonwoven fabrics in its final form.

 The Stomp ‘N Go was selected in preference to three other finalists by the attendees at the eleventh annual VISION Conference, which was held from January 23-26 at the Hotel InterContinental in New Orleans.

Celebrating its 11th consecutive year of bringing together the worlds of consumer products and nonwovens, the VISION Consumer Products Conference, which is organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry attracted more than 340 attendees from around the world.

The event once again focused attention on the role of nonwovens in consumer products ranging from diapers, feminine hygiene and incontinence products to home air filters, facial products, dryer sheets, cleaning products, packaging and more.

 The four finalists made presentations during VISION 2012 and conference attendees voted for the recipient of the 2012 Visionary Award.

 Stomp 'N Go is a stain-lifting pad that removes carpet stains with a single ‘stomp’. The user simply places one of the pre-moistened pads onto the spot, gives it a good stomp, and then watches as the stain begins to absorb into the pad. Stomp 'N Go pads are said to use an oxy-based formula to lift and remove most spots and stains within 30 minutes.

 “Stomp ‘N Go is truly an original product that showcases some unique applications for nonwoven fabrics in its finished form, which is the prerequisite for receiving the Visionary Award,” says Rory Holmes, President of INDA.

 “There were four outstanding products representing many aspects of consumer products and they were all winners by being selected as finalists in the 2012 competition.”

 The other three 2012 Visionary Award finalists were:

BandZorb Disposable Headwear Liners, from BandZorb LLC

The patent pending BandZorb Headwear Liners are self-adhesive, antimicrobial, absorbent, eco-friendly disposable bands that are sold in two sizes to fit virtually all visors, caps, hats, and helmets.

IntelliDent Toothbrush Holder, from E4 Technologies

 IntelliDent is made from an SMS nonwoven that is slit and ultrasonically welded to form a pocket for a toothbrush. Each breathable, quick drying IntelliDent shield blocks surface and airborne microbes as it wicks moisture away from brush bristles, creating a cleaner, healthier environment for the toothbrush.          

O’Cedar ProMist Disposable Floor Cleaning Pad, from Tietex International

This nonwoven composite incorporates airlaid nonwoven, spunbond nonwoven and film roll goods stitchbonded using microfiber and ‘scrubby’ yarns. The two yarns are bonded in such a fashion that loops are created on the ‘A’ surface and the combination of microfiber and scrubby loops provide exceptional floor cleaning performance.

 The 2013 VISION Consumer Products heads to Orlando, Florida in 2013 and will be held January 29-31, 2013 at the Hilton Walt Disney Resort. INDA Website: www.inda.org
