Consumers Use Cleaners For a Variety of Purposes

November 2, 2007

While Americans may be waiting patiently for inventions like a garbage can that cleans itself and dryers that fold laundry, an SC Johnson Cleaning Innovations Survey shows they’re improvising with household cleaning products to get their chores done in the interim. The survey discovered more than 74% of people have found various uses for cleaning products to simplify household chores. Whether it’s substituting a spritz of glass cleaner (43%) for all-purpose cleaner or a capful of dishwashing liquid (38%) for laundry detergent, consumers tend to trust their favorites to pull double duty when their supply of other items runs low.
