P&G Swiffer mop enters Europe

Published on .

Procter & Gamble Co., Cincinnati, launched Swiffer WetJet, a battery-operated floor mop, in Belgium. A pan-European launch will follow, but P&G didn't give a date. The Swiffer kit includes one WetJet mop, a liter of cleaning liquid, six absorbent mop heads, four batteries and a year's guarantee. D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles, Paris and Amsterdam, is handling launch ads. The Swiffer mop rolled out in Canada this summer, handled by D'Arcy's Toronto office. P&G's fabric and homecare unit has tended in recent years to use Canada, the U.K. and the Benelux countries, including Belgium, to test products before U.S. launch.
