In 1837 in Cincinnati, Ohio, candle-maker William Procter and soap-maker James Gamble discovered that candies provided the technology base for making soap. This initial partnership created Procter & Gamble, a company that strives to deliver innovative products both at and away from home.

Through the years, the company has diversified and grown to serve nearly five billion people in more than 140 countries with some of the most advertised packaged goods brands, such as Folgers(r) Coffee, Dawn(r) Dishwashing Liquid, Tide(r) Laundry Detergent and Spic and Span(r) Cleaner.

Through its success, Procter & Gamble has become a recognized leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of superior-quality products that serve a variety of consumer and commercial markets, including long-term healthcare.

The Professional Line Swiffer(r) System is one Procter & Gamble product embracing innovation for healthcare professionals by providing them with a versatile, effective method of removing allergens, dust, dirt, hair and other particles from a variety of hard surfaces.

Whether used by hand or attached to the lightweight Swiffer sweeper, Swiffer cloths leave facilities cleaner than conventional hand dusting, broom sweeping or mop dusting by attracting and capturing particles with an electrostatic charge and specially designed Lift & Lock [Pockets.sup.TM]. Particles are removed, not scattered, as users discard Swiffer cloths.

The Swiffer sweeper is ideal for cleaning floors, and its compact design helps users access hard-to-reach and overhead areas, such as air vents, molding, trim and ceiling corners. When used by hand, Swiffer cloths effectively eliminate residue on counter tops, electronics, video and picture frames.

The Procter & Gamble Professional Line includes more than 22 high-performance products that incorporate advanced cleaning technologies for bathrooms, hard surfaces, floors, pots and pans in foodservice and institutional cleaning environments. P&G also is dedicated to introducing new-to-the-world products such as Febreze(r) Fabric Refresher and Spic and Span(r) All-Purpose Disinfectant Spray and Glass Cleaner.

Procter & Gamble enters the new millennium continuously striving to provide superior-quality products for both at-home and away-from-home use.
