Permatex, a division of ITW (Illinois Tool Works Inc.), was awarded the 2016 Hardware Retailer Choice Award from the North American Retail Hardware Association during the 2016 National Hardware Show for its Fast Orange Grease X Mechanic’s Laundry Detergent.
The Retailers’ Choice Award, which is in its 30th year, honors manufacturers for their innovation and helps retailers single out new and innovative products they feel are unique, interesting, and hold great promise for sales in their stores, Permatex reports.
Permatex’s Fast Orange Grease X Mechanic’s Laundry Detergent removes automotive grease, oil, tar, greasy dirt, automotive fluids and odors from clothes. It also eliminates the residue of grease that can be left in the washing machine and ends up on clothes washed in the next cycle.
Fast Orange Grease X also features a built-in pretreater that can remove up to 99% of automotive stains and odors. In addition, its proprietary soil release/antistatic agent helps repel future soils.
Dan Clarke Sr. product manager at Permatex, notes, “We are honored to receive this prestigious Retailers’ Choice Award for our Fast Orange Grease X Mechanic’s Laundry Detergent. Our innovations team came up with an excellent solution to a very frustrating cleaning problem. We are very proud of them and their first-to-market achievement.”
