What's in my cleaning product?

What is in my cleaning product?On the packaging of cleaning products you'll find a list of the main ingredient families in the product, and how much of each there is in the product in a series of ranges.

This started years back as a voluntary industry initiative but it's now been made a legal requirement.

See an illustration of some typical packs to see where to find this information on the pack.

Follow the link for an explanation of what's covered in this list.

If you'd like to know what each of these different kinds of ingredients do, click here.

It's also a legal requirement for manufacturers to provide details on the pack of a website where you can get a list of each specific ingredients rather than just the families. If you want this level of detail, check the pack.

Myth: It doesn’t make much difference whether my laundry load is full or not

Fact: Only 49% of wash loads are fully loaded in Europe. If all loads were washed full, 715 million litres of water a day would be saved – the equivalent water used by 5 million people, or a city the size of Barcelona.
