Cleaning Products Fact Sheet. To assess the risks for the consumer

Factsheet Reinigingsmiddelen. T.b.v. de schatting van de risico's voor de consument

Synopsis

Exposure to compounds in consumer products can be assessed using the computer program ConsExpo (Consumer Exposure). Given the huge number of consumer products, it is not possible to calculate the exposure for each separate product, so a limited number of groups containing similar products are defined. The information for each group of products is described in a fact sheet. Paint, cosmetics, children's toys and pest control products are examples of fact sheets which have been published already. This fact sheet covers the use of cleaning products by consumers. In the fact sheet 36 product categories are described including laundry detergents, dishwashing products, abrasives and toilet cleaners. To assess exposure of compounds in the cleaning products default values for all 36 product categories have been determined.
