The environmental push to remove water from cleaning products

Hosted by

The first ingredient in most cleaning products is water. In some cases, water makes up more than 90% of household cleaners, like detergent, floor cleaner, and shampoo.

That’s the idea behind a growing environmental push to sell more waterless products.
