ACI Responds To Cleaning Product Claims

September 10, 2012

"Used safely and effectively millions of times every day," it contends.

Consumers can continue to use cleaning products in their homes properly, safely and effectively, despite the distortions coming from a special interest group’s attack on these beneficial products, according to the American Cleaning Institute.

“The cleaning products industry dedicates an enormous amount of resources to assuring the safety of products, including many millions of dollars in research, development and testing before products ever hit the shelves,” said Brian Sansoni, ACI Vice President of Communication. “Additionally, products must meet all applicable federal and state quality, safety and labeling regulations.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of the families who use these products.

“The disappointing scare campaign by Environmental Working Group promotes false fears about cleaning products, which play an essential role in our daily lives,” Sansoni added.

ACI says this latest EWG effort distorts the science and research about cleaning product and ingredient safety and defies a fundamental principle of science by ignoring that ingredients can be used safely at the levels present in cleaning products.

“It is a fact that anything can be safe or unsafe – it all depends on the amount. Manufacturers work to ensure that they use levels of ingredients that are ‘just right’ - in that they provide a benefit in the products, but at the same time are safe.”

ACI reminded consumers that more information is available than ever before on cleaning product ingredients, which companies are providing on labels, website, toll-free numbers and other non-electronic means.
