According to Treehugger.com, the average household has more than 63 synthetic chemical products in it, which translates to roughly 10 gallons of harmful chemicals.
By using the CLR brands of DfE-certified products, consumers can reduce the amount of household toxins, since they are made with no inorganic phosphates, hazardous solvents or environmentally harmful surfactants.
Although consumers are purchasing green products in increasing numbers, nearly 40 percent of Americans said they do not purchase eco-friendly cleaning products because there are not comparable green cleaning alternatives to their favorite cleaners.
Some respondents -- 17 percent -- also said they do not purchase "green" cleaning products for fear they are less effective than other cleaners.
CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner demonstrated a greater degree of mold/mildew removal than a leading competitor's bathroom cleaner and greater de-scaling than a separate leading competitor's bathroom cleaner, both of which are currently on the market.
"The CLR brands are more effective than many cleaning products on the market today," said Lou Manfredini, national home improvement expert and host of the nationally syndicated television show Housesmarts. "They may look tough on the outside, but rest-assured that this product will clean your home without harming its inhabitants -- your family."
