A new Taste & Smell Research Foundation conducted study, commissioned by the maker Pine-Sol® cleaners, found that children who perform better at school almost always identify their homes with scents associated with clean. The study also showed a correlation between memory of positive scents and performance, demonstrating that it begins at an early age and is something that parents can impact.
The study demonstrated a positive connection between a well-cared home and the sort of stable family environment that promotes academic success, self-esteem, learning and harmony – and enhances achievement later in life.
Pine-Sol has two brand new scents (Garden Fresh and Outdoor Fresh) as well as two improved classic scents. They also have developed the first ever easy-to-pour flip-cap offering controlled pouring.
Pine-Sol is teaming up with Reading is Fundamental, the largest family and children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States, by donating $40,000 in 2011 in an effort to help children achieve in life. You can all get involved simply by liking Pine-Sol on Facebook during March. For every two likes, Pine-Sol will donate one book to Reading is Fundamental (up to 5,000 books).
