The Latest News from Citra Solv
Click the links below for recent news about our brands and our company.
Consumer Reports recently re-tested auto dish detergents, focusing in on hard water conditions. Our Citra Dish Powder was the top natural auto dish product. We are proud to say that Citra Dish performed better than several other of our well-known, "natural" competitors. We even performed far better than some conventional brands, including Finish Powder, Palmolive Eco and Sun Light. We'd like to say "we told you so," but we'll let the study – and the product – speak for itself.
A "Clean" New Look
In honor of our 25th Anniversary, and after months of hard work, our new website redesign launched! We feel the new site better reflects who we are, what we do, and how committed we are to our valuable customers and the environment.

Spring Into Art
Our Citra Artists did it again, awing us with their magnificent depictions of the season of splendor in the grass, lilting songs, and sweet smells in the air. Congratulations and thanks to the many talented artists who entered. Citra Solv is swiftly becoming a useful tool in the art world, and we are grateful and excited!

Can You Feel the Love (or at least paint it)?
We asked our Citra Artists to show us some love! Our "Show us your (He)Art" contest invited everyone to send us a valentine (we're not sorry to admit it!). Judy Ludovise, Diane Robinson, Marsha Carlton, Carol Andrews Jensen, Diana Orendorf and Christy RePinec all created beautiful pieces that stole our hearts.
We also said, "Let's Dish" to our Facebook Family -- about our natural, good for you, good for the environment auto dishwasher gel, that is. To try some for free, all they had to do was enter our Clean Up With Citra Dish Giveaway just by "liking" the post!
A Clean Start to the Year
We started the year off right, and had some Good Clean Fun with Citra Suds! Once again, Facebook Family members simply had to "like" our posts to win. We also featured the same type of offer in our Clean Up With Citra Dish Facebook giveaway.
This month, we were also proud to name Andrea Pottyondy the Citra Solv Artist of the Month. Andrea is a versatile master of mediums – with Citra Art being one of them, of course.
Looking forward to a wonderful, exciting year with all kinds of exciting things happening!
Tis The Season!
The last month of the year is always a busy time (which we LOVE!), and we certainly take advantage of the spirit of the season! We really do believe that it is much better to give than to receive, which is why we made December our Holly Jolly Giveaway month. Each week gave away a FREE gift by randomly choosing a name from the "likes" on a particular Facebook post. It's our way of saying thanks to our wonderful Facebook Fans.
We also offered Citra Solv's Recipes for a Happy Holiday, our cleaning tips for all the mishaps, spills and stains the season may bring. Of course we couldn't forget to mention crafting and card tips from our wonderful Citra Artists. What a great and creative way to end the year on a clean, green and happy note!
Fall, Families, Fun & Food
The submissions we received for our Falling Into Art contest entered our office with color and vibrancy, almost like falling leaves themselves! At the beginning of the month, we were thrilled to announce the winners of seasonal contest. Once again, the talented and generous professional artist Cathy Taylor was tasked with judging. First Place, amateur division, was awarded to Aleta Jacobson for "Horse II" ; Professional divison went to Pamela Peterson, "Fault Lines."
Our Home for the Holidays contest brought in touching stories of valued friends and family members. One tale in particular, touched us, that of Ginny Bojanowski and her incredible daughter, Lisa. Our many thanks to Ginny and Lisa for sharing their inspiring and moving story with all of us.
