Clorox Professional Products Company Introduces Its Newest Non-Bleach Hospital-Use Quaternary Disinfectant Cleaner

Stocks in this article: CLX

Part of the problem is that healthcare workers are often unclear about what product to use on surfaces and how long a product should be allowed to dwell. Many facilities rely on environmental services professionals' expertise in these areas to provide further training and counsel on procedures and product recommendations.

Clorox(R) Broad Spectrum Cleaner is fragrance-free and gentle enough to use daily on multiple nonporous medical surfaces such as counters, carts, bedside tables, walls, mattress covers, commodes, wheelchairs and more. The product is ideal for use in operating rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units and patient rooms, among many others. Clorox(R) Broad Spectrum Cleaner will be ready for shipment in early November in a 32 oz. spray and a 128 oz. refill. For more information about Clorox(R) Broad Spectrum Cleaner, visit www.cloroxhealthcare.com.

The launch of Clorox(R) Broad Spectrum Cleaner comes just months after the company's June and March 2011 announcements that Clorox(R) Germicidal Wipes and DISPATCH(R) Hospital Cleaner Disinfectant Towels with Bleach are EPA-registered to kill C. difficile spores in five minutes. With the addition of Clorox(R) Broad Spectrum Cleaner, the company looks forward to expanding its offerings beyond its signature bleach-based products to meet all healthcare facility needs.  

About Clorox Professional Products Company Clorox markets some of the most trusted and recognized brand names for infection preventionists and environmental services professionals, including Clorox Commercial Solutions(R) Ultra Clorox(R) Germicidal Bleach, Clorox Commercial Solutions(R) Germicidal Wipes, DISPATCH(R) Hospital Cleaner Disinfectant with Bleach Towels and Sprays and Clorox Commercial Solutions(R) Clorox(R) Broad Spectrum Quaternary Disinfectant Cleaner. These Clorox(R) products are fast-acting, EPA-registered disinfectants intended for use by healthcare personnel on environmental surfaces and medical equipment to help reduce the spread of pathogens that cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). With the acquisition of Caltech Industries, Clorox has become one of the leading providers of bleach disinfectants in more than 2,500 acute care facilities across the nation. With a deeper commitment to providing efficacious solutions to the healthcare industry, Clorox will continue to build upon its rich history of helping infection preventionists and environmental services professionals stop the spread of pathogens.
