MILWAUKEE (September 10, 2015)—People who have used a pressure washer for an outdoor cleaning project will agree that there is something very satisfying about blasting surfaces to see them go from “grime to shine” right before your eyes. Briggs & Stratton® wants to see photos that show the dramatic cleaning power of pressure washers and are turning to social media to do it. The #GrimeToShine photo contest asks participants to share their Grime to Shine makeover for a chance to win a new pressure washer with POWERflow+ Technology™ as well as a $1,000 Lowe’s gift card.
Participants need to simply take a photo that shows their Grime To Shine makeover using a pressure washer. Entries for the #GrimeToShine contest can be submitted via Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #GrimeToShine, or to Twitter using #GrimeToShine and @Briggs&Stratton. People that have more than one outdoor cleaning project can simply take more photos for more chances to win – individual entrants can submit up to five total entries from now through September 30, 2015.
One weekly winner will be selected each week to win a free Briggs & Stratton 1800 Max PSI/4.0 Max GPM* Electric Pressure Washer with POWERflow+ Technology. One Grand Prize winner will also be selected to receive a $1,000 Lowe’s gift card and Briggs & Stratton 3000 Max PSI/5.0 Max GPM* Gas Pressure Washer with POWERflow+ Technology.
Pressure washers with POWERflow+ technology are the only pressure washers available with both high pressure to lift dirt and high flow to easily wash it away. The 7-in-1 nozzle allows users to switch settings for various outdoor cleaning projects with the twist of a wrist.
*Both models tested according to Pressure Washer Manufacturer's Association (PWMA) testing procedure PWMA 101 and achieved a maximum PSI rating utilizing a 0 degree nozzle tip and maximum flow (or GPM) rating using a 40 degree nozzle tip.
