Bloomington, Ill. (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
Filtrete™ brand has launched its premium vacuum accessories line - a must-have for consumers who seek superior filtration and a cleaner home environment - in Target stores. The product line at Target features 36 types of bags, filters and belts, covering Eureka*, Hoover*, Bissell*, Dirt Devil*, Kenmore* and Panasonic* brands within the market. All Target stores nationwide now exclusively feature the Filtrete line of vacuum bags, belts and filters.
"The Filtrete Vacuum Accessory Line is a high-quality, comprehensive line of bags, belts and filters that offers consumers a complete solution for their vacuum accessory needs," said Leiah Miller, brand manager for Filtrete Vacuum Accessories. "Consumers also will appreciate the line's easy-to-read design that allows them to quickly find the product they seek."
Ordinary paper bags can let as much as 50 percent of micro-particles back into the air. Filtrete vacuum bags easily capture micro-particles including dust, pet dander, allergens, mold and bacteria.
Filtrete vacuum filters provide exceptional filtration performance. Allergen and HEPA filter options both work to ensure loose particles are trapped within the filter and not released into the air.
"Filtrete vacuum accessories provide excellent home filtration to help keep the home clean, which is particularly important for allergy sufferers and pet owners," said Miller.
The Line also features creative packaging from Filtrete that reduces the overall environmental impact. All chipboard features 80 percent recycled materials and plastic packaging for filters is made from recyclable PETE.**
"The Line packaging features easy to identify icons and brand names to make it simple for consumers to purchase the correct accessory," said Miller. "In addition, a product selector flip book will be housed at the point of sale to make it easier for consumers to select the right product for their vacuum."
