I checked out this whole story. Windex® ingredients are listed on their website—more than what most cleaning product companies provide. But I choose to stay away from harmful ingredients such as ammonia, fragrance and dyes. Now that my suspicions have been confirmed, I'll stick with vinegar and water.
I also found the SC Johnson FAQs section fascinating:
Question: Aren't natural products better?
Answer: "Not necessarily. "Natural" or home remedies are not necessarily safer, effective or lower in allergens. In fact, many natural products undergo limited or no scientific testing compared to the extensive toxicological evaluations that companies like SC Johnson require for their product formulations."
Question: Why do you use fragrance in your products?
Answer: "Consumers tell us they love fragrances...most of our testing shows that the majority of people love fragranced household products."
Question: Why use dyes?
Answer: "Dyes, preservatives and fragrances provide valuable benefits. Dyes are an important visual cue that helps you know where you're spraying a product and, in fact, that it's the product you intended to use."
Now that we know they're listening, let SC Johnson know you're looking forward to seeing ingredients listed on their products this summer! Find them on Facebook or @SCJGreenChoices.
