Shake n' Vac is a powdered carpet freshener. The powder is shaken onto the carpet before vacuuming. It is currently marketed and sold in the United Kingdom by S. C. Johnson & Son. The product became well known due to its famous television commercial during the 1980s, with the advertisement being voted as one of the most popular TV advertisements in Britain. The product, still available as of today, is primarily remembered for its iconic Dancing Woman television advertisement shown until 1989. There has been some controversy over when the advert was first aired. The 100 Greatest TV Adverts programme stated that the advertisement was first broadcast in 1979, however it was the actual product that went on sale in 1979, with the advertisement not being aired until 1980 due to the 1979 ITV Strike.
