Good Housekeeping has selected the BISSELL Versus Bare Floor Vacuum as one of 10 winners of its inaugural VIP (Very Innovative Product) Awards. The prestigious award celebrates revolutionary products that truly stand out for inventive approaches to helping families improve their lives in ingenious ways, big and small.

Good Housekeeping stated “Why didn't someone think of this sooner? This slim vac's V-shaped head gets into hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, in the corners, under baseboards, and around furniture legs, channeling the mess in. In our tests, it picked up 98 percent of dirt from tight spots regular vacuums tend to miss.”

The Good Housekeeping Research Institute reviewed thousands of products throughout the year and each winner was chosen after review by Research Institute scientists based on three key criteria: problem-solving ability, performance, and innovation. The Versus™ Bare Floor Vacuum was the only floor-care product to pass all three tests, demonstrating the validity of BISSELL’s mission to create products to meet consumers’ unique cleaning needs.

"As a leader in the floor-care industry, BISSELL is pleased to receive Good Housekeeping’s first ever VIP Award," says Jim Krzeminski, BISSELL's executive vice president of product development, sales and marketing. "BISSELL is committed to offering groundbreaking products for everyday needs and the Versus Bare Floor Vacuum is one of many that provide a better cleaning solution for consumers."
