WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA) is separating fact from fiction about what looks clean and what is clean with the launch of its new consumer website http://www.AboutCleaningProducts.com.
"We are surrounded by invisible germs that can have a significant impact on our health," said Chris Cathcart, president of CSPA. "While it's easy to make a home look clean, there is a wide array of issues to consider to achieve a truly clean home, such as choosing a safe and effective product -- whether it is a traditional, "green" or home-brewed alternative."
http://www.AboutCleaningProducts.com provides a wealth of information about how to clean kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, and carpets and upholstery. It also includes useful information about alternatives to traditional cleaners.
"In today's information age, it is important for consumers to have a resource they can rely upon to provide factual information about the science of the cleaning process, the different types of products available, and their uses and limitations," said Kelly Semrau, chair of CSPA and vice president of global public affairs and communications for SC Johnson.
In a recent national survey commissioned by the Alliance for Consumer
Education (ACE), mothers stated that keeping their homes clean was the best
means of protecting their families from the germs that cause colds and flu.
ACE's interactive website, http://www.StopGerms.org, allows consumers to
take a tour of a home and learn how to have a cleaner and healthier home.
Other CSPA-related websites include:
-- http://www.AboutBugs.com explains that the awareness of dangers of
certain pests, education in their control and taking effective control
steps are necessary for the health and well-being of people, plants and
-- http://www.AboutGerms.com explores the historical use of antimicrobials
and looks at the many modern day benefits of these agents including the
protection of our health and homes.
