Do you hold your breath when using a cleaning product spray? I definitely do. Despite the fact that Seventh Generation has their headquarters in my town, I don’t heavily discriminate when it comes to purchasing cleaning products. I do, however, find myself wondering exactly what it is that I am inhaling, touching and spreading around when I do the monthly-er, weekly cleaning around the house.

Now I can know.

Thanks to the Soap and Detergent Association (SDA), I can find out exactly what ingredients are in my cleaning products through their recently-launched “Ingredient Central” site.

At Ingredient Central, member companies give information about the ingredients of the products in order for consumers to make better decisions about safe and effective cleaning product use. Participating companies include some heavy hitters like Clorox, Proctor & Gamble, S.C. Johnson & Son and yes, Seventh Generation. Each company has a link where consumers can go to find out how and where the company’s ingredient information can be found.
