The free online guide, titled "Six Building Blocks of a Robust Cleaning and Disinfection Program," is intended to help employers train personnel, select effective products, and develop robust cleaning and disinfection processes to create and maintain safer environments.
Clorox said in a statement that the partnership with the clinic will extend beyond the guide and may include research and development as well as educational initiatives for businesses and industries, all in the interest of promoting public health.
Clorox manufactures many well known household cleaning products. But in recent years the company has become a major manufacturer of dietary supplements as well under such brand names as RenewLife, Rainbow Light, Natural Vitality and NeoCell. The company also owns the Burts Bees line of natural personal care products.
The Cleveland Clinic has had a checkered history with regard to supplements. One the one hand, the organization distributes information such as this moderately positive review of the immune-boosting properties of elderberry supplements. But the clinic also distributes pieces such as this one, that calls the overall safety of supplements into question.
