All-purpose cleaners can safely deal with the unexpected, whether it’s muddy footprints on the floor, a kitchen spill or grimy door handles.
Because they can clean many types of surfaces, they help to avoid the spread of bacteria and keep your household healthy.
All-purpose cleaners are usually liquids and are also available in spray bottles as ready-to-use products.
This icon was officially endorsed by the United Nations in mid 2019 and included in the GHS Sub-committee guidelines (Globally Harmonized System of classification and labelling of chemicals).
Choose products that have the Charter for Sustainable Cleaning logo on their label, this indicates that you are choosing a product that meets strict sustainability criteria.
All-purpose cleaners can be used on lots of surfaces but there are some for which they are not suitable, so always read the label first.
Clean work surfaces after they have been in contact with raw meat, poultry and fish to avoid cross-contamination with harmful bacteria.
You may prefer to use a cleaner with additional anti-microbial agents (a disinfectant) for this, for better protection where there is a risk of infection.
Most all-purpose cleaners don’t need hot water to work well. Use lukewarm or even cold water to save energy, lower your carbon footprint and still get great cleaning results.
Use the recommended amount of product and always follow the usage instructions.
