EPA approves venerable brand's kill claims.

A venerable brand in home care is taking on a new threat. Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner has received approval from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for kill claims against SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, on hard non-porous surfaces.

The new claims come after third-party laboratory testing proved the disinfectant's efficacy against the virus with a 10-minute contact time on hard non-porous surfaces. 
 
Pine-Sol is made by The Clorox Company, which was ranked No. 11 in Happi's 2020 Top 50 Report.
