Clorox has a line of green cleaners on the market right now called Clorox Green Works. I think their intention is to get involved in all the hype around going green and maximize their profits. I don’t think they are interested in saving the planet, or decreasing the amount of toxins in households. The other day I was in the store and happened to grab a bottle of their “natural dishwashing liquid”. I wanted to see what its ingredients were.
Coconut-based cleaning agents*
Blue and Yellow colorant (probably synthetic)
*anionic and nonionic surfactants: alkyl polyglucoside, sodium lauryl sulfate and cocodimethyl amine oxide
Sodium lauryl sulfate in a “natural” cleaner? Blue and Yellow Coloring? Way to go Clorox. I would much rather spend a little extra money and buy something like Planet dishwashing liquid so I know that I’m buying a more natural product. I just think it’s so crappy that Clorox markets it’s product as green yet includes non natural ingredients. Not cool, Clorox.
What kind of dishwashing liquid do you use?
