Redefining Healthcare's Most Trusted Bleach Solutions
To serve the healthcare community's product needs, Clorox will be transitioning its Clorox® Germicidal Wipes and Dispatch® Hospital Cleaner Disinfectants under one Clorox Healthcare™ portfolio umbrella. The products will feature the same formulas, claims, UPC and EPA-registration numbers that are trusted and widely used by professionals. The label transformations reflect Clorox's commitment to serving the healthcare industry with solutions specifically designed and labeled for their needs.
