“It’s not just about keeping surfaces clean and safe amid the pandemic,” says Curtis Eggemeyer, chief executive officer, Lemi Shine. “We have to consider the everyday health of American families: expectant mothers, families with young children, pet owners and plant lovers alike. Our research shows that of course shoppers want effective cleaning products that kill viruses and bacteria, but they also want safe products that don’t have harmful fumes or leave toxic residue behind.”
Lemi Shine’s disinfecting products are on a limited list of products approved by the EPA to effectively disinfect against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. The wipes are said to be 100% biodegradable and safe for use on everything from kitchen countertops to highchairs and are ideal for the CDC’s recommended “high touch surfaces” including tables, doorknobs, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks, among others.
Lemi Shine Disinfecting Wipes (EPA reg No. 34810-37-92388) come in a pack of 75 and will be introduced in a phased regional roll out, available at HEB and Kroger stores this month with national retail and online availability by December. Lemi Shine will add a new and improved Disinfecting Multi Surface Spray later in 2020 and adding more products to the line in 2021.
Lemi Shine also offers a complete line of household cleaning products "powered 100% by citric extracts."
