BEMA No Longer Recommending Comet Bathroom Cleaner

The partnership between the Bath Enclosure Manufacturers Association (BEMA) and Prestige Brands, which sells Comet Bathroom Cleaner, ended recently when Prestige was purchased by a new investment company that was unwilling to continue the relationship.

"Our 12-year relationship with Comet was mutually beneficial, the use of our products increased substantially and millions of Comet samples were placed directly with consumers," BEMA recently reported.

"The association is grateful for Comet's support over the years and looks forward to welcoming a new partner in the very near future."

BEMA is now in discussions with Lysol, manufacturer of Basin, Tub and Tile, in regards to participation in its promotional efforts. Chris Birch, BEMA executive director, said a tentative agreement had been reached with Lysol. He expects the agreement to be signed within the next two weeks.

BEMA says it is no longer recommending Comet, and members should take necessary actions to remove the recommendation.
