On July 28, 2015 Mr. Clean and home renovation expert Jonathan Scott hosted the brand’s first-ever Moving Institute to showcase the ways the Magic Eraser and Concentrated Multi-Surface Cleaner can be used to give a home a 15-Minute Renovation. Guests used the hashtag #15MinReno during the event. As July is in the middle of moving season, Mr. Clean knows that during the moving process, it’s not always possible to put a lot of time or money into making your home look new and fresh. On their show “The Property Brothers,” the Scott brothers help couples find, buy and transform extreme fixer-uppers into the ultimate dream home. And since it’s hard to see beyond a dated property’s shortcomings, they use state-of-the-art CGI to reveal their vision of the future. Special guest, actress and home décor enthusiast Ashley Greene, also discovered her own favorite #15MinReno tips, like using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Power to restore a vintage vinyl or plastic chair and using Mr. Clean Concentrated Cleaner to get dull floors shining like new. A #15MinReno with Mr. Clean can give you a like-new clean because his products are tough on dirt all around the house. P&G serves nearly five billion people around the world with its brands.

The theme of today is moving, what has been the biggest move you’ve made in your career?
Ashley Greene: Probably moving to LA was definitely the thing that catapulted us all into everyone’s living rooms and minds and into our careers for the most part. That and I think probably buying a house because I think it was really kind of like a rite of passage being able to do that, to provide for yourself and live on your own is a very special thing. My dad is really proud so that was a big moment.
You have “Staten Island Summer” airing July 31 on Netflix. Can you talk about what it was like filming that and working with the cast and crew?
AG: It was at first a bit intimidating because it was … a lot of the SNL cast and they’re all comedic geniuses so I was kind of testing the waters but it was really really fun. It was crazy because I think being conditioned to do something like SNL, everything was up in the air, there were new ideas but it was a really fun way of filming something that I hadn’t really experienced before and I got to meet people like Bobby Moynihan who I always watch on SNL so it was really fun.
How did you get interested in home renovation?
AG: I guess really well my dad growing up is a jack of all trades and pretty much built our first house so he taught me and my brother a lot of things that we know. And a lot of things I feel most men don’t know how to do in LA, my brother knows how to do. It kind of stemmed from there and I think HGTV has been a huge advocate in having people take on home renovations and kind of learning what it takes and what you should do and shouldn’t do and what works and doesn’t work. So I then became obsessed with HGTV and “Property Brothers” and all that stuff.
How do you use Mr. Clean products in your day-to-day cleaning routine?
AG: The Magic Eraser is probably my favorite because it’s super easy to use and it works on almost every surface. The walls I think is my favorite because I have lighter color walls and I always have people over and I have four dogs and no matter how clean everything is when you see those smudges on the walls and light fixtures it puts people off a little bit. Even in the kitchen I have stainless steel appliances so it’s probably the one I use the most.
What do you have coming up?
AG: I am filming a TV show called “Rogue” right now for DirectTV so it’s actually airing now and I’m encouraging everyone to watch so by the time my episodes air next Spring people are caught up because it’s a crazy show. It has a lot of twists and turns, very well-written and very fast-paced so I’m really excited to see how people respond to the character I’m playing. She’s a wildcard. She’s definitely different.
