AWESOME! I use the site for everything else... didn't know they have cleaners too... although I only buy dish stuff & toilet stuff, but good to know in case I am in a pinch and/or to know about the dish stuff!

Wow thanks for posting this. I use the site a lot, too. So sad to see my beloved Bac-Out got such a terrible score! Back to vinegar for me!

I am not sure I would put much stock in these ratings for now. Biokleen is a great company and just had to go through stringent checks and balances to sell at Whole Foods. EWG does its best, but sometimes they miss the mark on what is truly safe or not.

I agree w/Sunyflwr. And EWG has said that many things factor into their scores, including how readily available the ingredient lists are.

Good point! I was wondering how it could make it into whole foods, too. Eh, everything with a grain of salt I suppose.
