A Clean Sweep

These brain teasers rely on your ability to recognize groups of common attributes. For each of these puzzles you'll need to figure out why the words or letters are grouped as they are. Sometimes you will be asked to pick the odd-one-out or to place a new word into the correct group.

I loved the TONE of this teaser. I think you had a good SAFEGUARD in that your hid the words in sentences that had absolutely nothing to do with eath other. Good job!

Glad you guys liked it! I thought about using the words in a "short story" or just a short paragraph, but that seamed too hard. Thanks for the nice comments!

I found that they each had TWO things in common. Agreed, each contains a bbar soap brand name, but each is also a simple declarative sentence, so they have a common link grammatically.

Wowie wow wow snowy!
This teaser is cool!
Though I could almost never figure out any teasers, iwould NEVER solve this one. That's because I have NEVER heard of any of these soap brands.

I got it with the last one. Irish Spring gave it away for me and I went back through the list and saw that I had figured it out.

Thanks for the great teaser.

Thanks for the nice comments! I was wondering if "Irish Spring" would give it away for some.
