Eco-Friendly Conserve Cleaners to Revolutionize how Household Cleaners are
Packaged, Sold and Used

CHICAGO, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Baumgartens announces an innovative range of
new waterless cleaners under its environmentally-friendly brand CONSERVE(R)
that is sold in tablet form with consumers adding water once ready to use.
Conserve Cleaners compete with national brands but are significantly more cost
effective than any other environmentally friendly cleaners on the market
today. "For the first time, environmentally-friendly equals better value
compared to similar national brands," said Clive Roux, chief marketing
officer, Baumgartens.

The full range of products consists of cleaners for glass and window,
multi-surface, bathroom, and odor eliminator. Conserve Cleaners cost up to 50
percent less than other green cleaners and up to 40 percent less than national
brands of conventional liquid cleaners. According to lab tests, the patented
tablet technology dissolves fully and competes with green and non-green liquid
cleaners alike.

"We are able to achieve these cost-savings for consumers because our products
have eliminated the heaviest ingredient in household cleaners...water," said
David Baumgarten, vice president, Baumgartens. "Without water weight, we lower
shipping weight by 85 percent and use 75 percent less space as each empty
bottle comes with four tablets...the equivalent of four full bottles of
conventional liquid cleaner!  Further, conventional cleaner equivalents would
require eight trucks versus just one for ours, not to mention all the
equipment, time and energy needed to load and unload those trucks."  

"In addition to transportation, space and time savings that result in
significant pollution reductions, we are able to eliminate 75 percent of
waste...in other words, three bottles from landfills for every product
shipped!" said Roux.

Conserve Cleaners make a contribution at every level of the EPA's Resources
Conservation Challenge's "7R's of Packaging" by removing, reducing, reusing,
using renewable and recyclable packaging and cost savings.
