28 Clever Cleaning Product Ads

From Coffee-Holding Cloth Ads to Shape-Shifting Paper Towels

— July 5, 2013 — Marketing
Marketing a product that removes stains or cleans surfaces isn't the most exciting of tasks, but these clever cleaning product ads are utilizing imaginative concepts and pieces of imagery to sell these otherwise ordinary supplies.

With the variety of cleaning supply brands on the market, it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate one specific brand from the other. That is why these clever print campaigns are incorporating outside-the-box concepts and humorous themes as a way to attract consumers. From ads that showcase paper towels taking the form of actual spilt products to cleaning cloths that are seemingly strong enough to carry coffee, these clever product ads are creating a striking visual concept that viewers will certainly remember.
