Green Seal introduces new standards for specialty cleaning products. Two new standards have been released to cover routinely-used products such as dish soaps, graffiti removers, automotive cleansers, deck and outdoor cleaners, odor removers and polishes and waxes, among others. The standards also provide guidance on what requirements to look for in specifying disinfectants and sanitizers.

With the launch of these standards, Green Seal now offers standards for most cleaning products. Green Seal standards for general purpose cleaning and floor cleaning products have been used for nearly two decades to help consumers and professional purchasers identify environmentally-preferable options.

This action by Green Seal is welcomed! While we view the green industry as either the Green Jungle or the Wild, Wild West, it is reassuring to have companies such as Green Seal continuing in their quest to find environmentally-friendly answers for all areas of the janitorial and personal use products.
