Compartmented dispenser does double duty

Hillyard Inc., a Missouri-based manufacturer/distributor of janitorial products, sanitary supplies and equipment, has introduced Double Down, a spot remover incorporating two ingredients that cannot be mixed until they are applied to a garment or carpeting. Their packaging differentiates Double Down from other cleaning products. TricorBraun ( helped developed the compartmented package, which evenly mixes both of the ingredients in mid-air before they're applied. A single, custom, snap-finish closure is attached to two 16-oz interlocking containers and consistently mixes the stream of chemicals after they leave the cap and before the cleaning agent reaches the soiled area. The ergonomically shaped HDPE containers are joined by a locking mechanism that is molded to their sides. The molds also were custom-designed by TricorBraun. Peroxide is dispensed from one bottle, to brighten and deodorize the laundry or carpet spot. The second ingredient, a polymer with surfactant, is dispensed from the adjoining bottle, and it encapsulates the remaining residue. The soil is either washed out in the laundry cycle or is vacuumed.
