When you wash your clothes with Clorox, there are two brands to consider
- by admin
The washing machine that comes with your laundry basket may not have the best cleaning abilities.
But the one that comes in a bucket of Cloroxin laundry sanitiser may be the better option.
Clorox claims the laundry sanifier, “can remove virtually any dirt and stains,” and its laundry-cleaning wipes are effective against most bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus.
But that laundry-removal formula may not always be up to par.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about half of the 1.2 million household laundry detergent and detergent-remover products sold in the United States are “no longer manufactured in the U.S.”
And in 2018, Clorax had the lowest percentage of imported laundry detergents on the market, at 0.3% of all detergences.
But as the CDC notes, Clorson, Claxon, and other household detergens are produced worldwide, and manufacturers sometimes switch their manufacturing lines to make the products in their home countries more efficient.
So it’s not uncommon for Cloracost laundry sanis to contain ingredients that are different from those that are found in the products of a domestic manufacturer.
In 2017, for example, the company recalled its laundry sanifying wipes because it found that some of the ingredients used in the brand had been contaminated with mold.
Claracost has also faced backlash over its laundry products.
In 2018, a woman who complained about Cloracylon’s laundry cleaning wipes said she experienced a rash that lasted for several days and was “disastrous for my health.”
The FDA said the product is now being recalled for people who have been exposed to the mold.
The CDC noted that it did not have data on the extent of the contamination in Cloracton’s products.
The FDA also said that while Cloracex has “proven effectiveness against some common household pathogens,” it is not known how effective the cleaning wipes were against Cloraccio.
And if you do end up washing your clothes, it may not be the sanitizers you need.
In 2016, the FDA issued a recall for Clonox laundry-sanitizer for the same reason that it issued a warning for the Clorx laundry-supply.
The Cloraclax cleaning wipes that were recalled were manufactured in Mexico, where they were found to contain dangerous levels of the disinfectant Clorathrin, which is also used to disinfect water pipes.
Cloraxycle said that the company is recalling the cleaning product for use in homes in Mexico where it is being used.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission also issued a safety advisory on Cloracon bleach after an 8-year-old girl in Ohio had to have her face, lips, and nose scrubbed with Clonaclax bleach after it came into contact with the skin.
The FDA noted that the product’s label says it can be used on contact with contaminated water.
The products were not recalled in Ohio, where Cloraclex is headquartered, but the agency did not say whether it would issue a similar recall.
