Coming Clean on Cleaning Products

December 02, 2010

Many people use detergents and cleansers every day, even though the contents of these household products, including potentially harmful chemicals, remain a mystery.

The state of New York has begun to enforce an unusual state law that requires manufacturers to disclose cleaning product ingredients.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is working on a draft plan due out early next year, that will detail what kind of information will be collected and how to give consumers the results.  The results may also show how the chemicals affect human and environmental health.

In the meantime, many corporations have voluntarily begun posting product ingredients on their websites to head off proposals in Congress for tougher disclosure, which would include listing ingredients on labels.

Consumers have a right to know what chemicals they are using on their kitchen countertops, and around their families, especially their children and pets.

The DEC decided to act on this issue because of the heightened interest in household cleaner ingredients.
