Kitchenware News & Housewares Review Show Daily 6 5 Saturday, March 14, 2020 Cleaning Made Faster & Easier with Hurricane Spin Mop Introduced over a decade ago, the Viatek Hurricane Spin Mop has become one of the company's most successful product lines. Proving that infomercial products are more than just seasonal gimmicks, the Spin Mop continues to make cleaning faster and easier in 2020. From its first demo, the Hurricane Spin Mop gave consumers a firsthand look at how it could help take the hassle out of keeping their floors spotless. Unprecedented for a consumer goods company, Viatek would take to heart requests concerning the product's functionality. Interchangeable mop heads, wheels on the bucket, a larger variety of colors and a less spacious design were soon added to the growing product line. The line currently consists of the 360 Slide Spin Mop and the 360 Stack Spin Mop. Both of these amazing products dry their respective mops at over 300 spins per minute, feature col- lapsible buckets to maximize storage potential, and have washable, reusable mop heads. The absorbent heads also attract any and all bits of dust, dirt and dander, leaving floor- boards with a spotless, shim- mering sheen. Spin Mop and Viatek are the results of the creativity of Lou Lentine, Founder and cur- rent Chairman of Viatek. This year he introduced a new pres- ident, Chad Neuendorf, to help continue the company's current path of success. Together, they aim to discover more life-changing products for a contin- ually diversifying consumer market, while also expanding upon existing suc- cess stories like the Hurricane Spin Mop. Working with customers, retailers and factories is what makes Viatek a great product devel- opment company. The compa- ny is known for introducing new gadgets year after year. These range from home and auto, pet and a wide range of surge protectors. Visit Viatek's booth #L11147, in Lakeside Center, to get a hands-on look at all that Viatek has to offer, including the latest version of the Hurricane Spin Mop.

What she never anticipated was that such a simple idea could lead to a 30-year jour- ney that would allow her the opportunity to impact the future of home organization and grow to become an industry-leading business. In 1990, the organizational house- wares category was small and limited, featuring little more than basic organizers for cooking tools or silverware. The cre- ation and success of the Original Junk Drawer Organizer swiftly ignited McNally's entrepreneurship and advanced the growth of the home organi- zation category as a whole. While designs and consumer needs may change over the years, our values of quality, function, style and affordability remain deeply rooted in the foundation of everything madesmart creates. From our simple bins and organizers to complex innovations like the new Drying Stone™ Collection, these values are threaded throughout. "As unexpected as it was, I could not be more grateful, as it's been easy to take pride in owning this company all these years," she reflects. "Still there are moments I think to myself, wow, it started with a junk drawer organ- izer, then all this hap- pened." Today, the Original Junk Drawer Organizer has become more than just a product. "It has become a catalyst for growth and development," says McNally, "not only for our designs, but for myself and my team. Of this I am deeply proud." With so many paths in organization to explore, madesmart still has a long way to go. This year, we are honored and humbled to be celebrating 30 years of organization. Visit us at our new booth location, #N7737, to see the latest innovations in home organization, including our state-of-the-art Drying Stone Collection, and a few brand-new renditions of the product that started it all, the Original Junk Drawer Organizer. For more information, stop by booth #N7737, go to www.madesmart.com, email info@madesmart.com, call 651.695.8550 and follow @madesmart on Instagram.
