Ecolab Inc. introduces a new line of bio-based hard surface cleaners that
deliver effective cleaning performance and are USDA BioPreferred and Green
Seal certified.

Designed for lodging, commercial and facility operations, Ecolab’s bio-based
facility care solutions are made from plant-derived natural resources and
designed to remove soils from hard surfaces safely and effectively. The full
product line includes a Peroxide Multi-Surface Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, Acid
Bathroom Cleaner and Neutral Bathroom Cleaner.

“Ecolab’s new line of bio-based hard surface cleaners were designed to deliver
effective cleaning performance with staff interactions in mind and do not
require personal protective equipment during use,” said Mark Copeland, vice

improve sustainability and safety while maintaining outstanding cleaning
results.”

In lab field tests, Ecolab’s new line of bio-based hard surface cleaners have
proven to be more effective than competing products. One example: the Acid

soils than the leading competitor products.
