Expertise Information Advice

Cleaning products are used every day in every place to deliver benefits to health and wellbeing.

Everyday millions of people use cleaning products to give them the clean and safe lifestyle that they expect and take for granted in the 21st century.

Myth Busters

Did you know the facts behind this common myth?

Myth: Traditional or ‘natural’ products are a good alternative to cleaning with chemicals

Fact: Even vinegar is just a collection of chemical substances diluted in water. It is these chemical components, like the acetic acid in vinegar, the sodium bicarbonate in baking soda and the citric acid in lemons that make them work. Modern cleaning products often combine the same things with other ingredients to make them work better.
