Yes, life can often be intense, sometimes flawed, and extremely messy. Just like your house. But behind the mess are life’s most precious moments. Ones worth celebrating, ones that are touching, sometimes painful ones — but all in all beautiful memories.
Because that’s what really counts. All’s good.

More than ever, dads take an active role in doing housework. Diapers, dishes, vacuuming — today’s dads don’t hesitate to get their hands dirty. In spite of this, cleaning product brands seem to be overlooking this new reality. Hertel decided to give real dads the credit they deserve in its ads.
