Winning Brands Participates in Government Study of Perc Replacement

Case Study for Environment Canada Documents Viability of Solvent Free Solutions™ for Dry Cleaning

BARRIE, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 27, 2007 -- Winning Brands Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WNBD) announces that the results of a formal case study completed on behalf of Environment Canada will be published in the May 2007 issue of FabriCare Canada magazine. The study documents the experience of cleaning "Dry Clean Only" garments using Winning Brands' SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions as the active cleaning agents instead of the solvent Perchloroethylene (Perc). The State of California has introduced legislation to phase out the use of Perc by the industry. In Canada, Perc has been assessed to be "toxic" pursuant to Section 11(a) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) as one of the 44 substances on the first Priority Substances List (PSL). The case study compared the reaction of Wet Cleaned garments to duplicate control garments in order to assess stain removal, shrinkage, finish and feel. All results were satisfactory and no Perc was used.

The case study is considered a milestone in proving that the science of solvent free garment cleaning has advanced sufficiently to become a viable alternative for Dry Cleaners internationally when considering how to respond to increasing health and environmental concerns about Perc worldwide.

Winning Brands manufactures SMART™ Wet Cleaning Solutions alternative to Perchlorethylene in North America as part of a range of environmentally responsible alternative cleaning solutions. Winning Brands' mission is to replace hazardous chemicals in widespread use with safer alternatives.
