Sustainable use

  • 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.
