Welcome to Cleanright
On this site, you will find a wide range of useful information on detergents, cleaners and maintenance products for use in the home.
Click on Visit the House for a virtual tour of the cleaning and maintenance products used in a typical home. Here you will find information on what types of products to use for different tasks, such as cleaning surfaces, furniture and fabrics.
Other sections explain how to obtain the best results from your products, as well as information on ingredients, how to use products safely, and what to do in the event of an accident or misuse. Remember, by using products responsibly, you can save money and also do your bit for the environment.
As an industry-supported website, Cleanright does not discuss specific brands but provides information common to the various types of products and families of products. The purpose of this site is to give you the information you need to make your own informed decisions, and to get the best results from your products in a safe and environmentally responsible way. This site has also been designed to provide information to institutions and non-governmental organisations. Information for the general public is in colour. Sections colour-coded in grey on the navigation tool bar provide information of a more technical nature. We hope your visit will be informative and beneficial!
The Charter for Sustainable Cleaning is a voluntary industry initiative encouraging manufacturers and consumers to adopt more sustainable cleaning practices. Progressively, you’ll find the Charter logo on a huge variety of cleaning products, starting with laundry detergents. Find out more here .
