Clean Show 2007 to See SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions in Action

Live Demonstrations for Industry Leaders at Las Vegas Convention Center

BARRIE, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- Winning Brands Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WNBD) announces that it will operate live demonstrations of SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions at the world's largest gathering of Dry Cleaners in the Las Vegas Convention Center June 11 - 14, 2007. SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions are an alternative to the solvent Perchloroethylene (Perc), which is coming under pressure from government agencies and environmental groups due to concerns about its safety. The ability to process all "Dry Clean Only" garments without Perc is considered a breakthrough in an industry looking for alternatives. SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions are the first documented "100% Solution" to this problem in the field of Wet Cleaning -- a leading contender to replace Perc-based systems.

The demonstrations will utilize Miele Professional Wet Cleaning equipment and take place in conjunction with Miele at Booth 1570 -- specially designed for live operation at the event. The demonstrations will take "Dry Clean Only" garments from the assembled industry professionals through complete processing to a finished result utilizing plain water and SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions instead of Perc. It has been estimated that replacement of Perc by the Dry Cleaning industry will prevent approximately 10,000 tonnes per year of Perc being released into the environment.

Winning Brands Corporation manufactures SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions for distribution to the Dry Cleaning industry by Solvent Free Solutions Inc. Solvent Free Solutions provides installation and training of proprietary Wet Cleaning systems internationally and on cruise ships. Winning Brands' full product range includes a variety of environmentally responsible alternative cleaning solutions, including Winning Colours® Multi-Cleaner and KIND™ Laundry Products.
