  • MYTH: Synthetic preservatives in cleaning products are dangerous and harmful.

    The amount of a preservative in a cleaning product is typically very small.  For example, approximately 1 and ½ drops of preservative is enough to protect a quart bottle of cleaning product. Also, in addition to being used in small amounts, synthetic preservatives are extensively tested and are approved by the EPA for their intended uses in order to protect human health and the environment. Preservatives cannot be used in any manner not approved  by the EPA.
