About the Mr Clean Mother’s Day Ad
Back in 2011, Mr. Clean released an ad entitled, “This Mother’s Day, get back to the job that really matters”. This slogan is accompanied by a video of a mom teaching her young daughter how to clean.
While the company attempted to portray the message that a mother should prioritize the cleanliness of their home for their loved ones, it failed.
Instead, people saw this ad as a bad depiction of outdated gender roles which implies that a woman’s primary duty is housework while taking away a day of celebration for mothers everywhere.
