Clorox Safe Water Project

Clorox Safe Water Project

In 2012, we launched the Clorox Safe Water Project to help provide safe drinking water to three communities in northern Peru. Partnering with PRISMA, a local nongovernmental organization, we installed public dispensers filled with a diluted solution of sodium hypochlorite, the primary ingredient in Clorox® bleach. Sodium hypochlorite kills more than 99 percent of the viruses and bacteria commonly found in untreated water for up to 48 hours. The dispensers, developed by Innovations for Poverty Action in Africa, are placed next to community water sources to encourage families to treat their water before they transport it home.

Encouraged by the success of the project, which currently serves 3,000 people, we plan to expand the program to reach 25,000 people over the next three years. That's the equivalent of providing 400,000 liters of clean water per day.

The Clorox Company’s Ingredients Inside Program has gone mobile. If you have a smartphone, you can get to ingredient information on our household and commercial disinfecting, cleaning and laundry products in the U.S. and Canada – wherever you may be.

We’re offering our smartphone app initially for iPhone® users, letting you scan a product UPC code for immediate access to that product's ingredient listing. In addition, a new mobile website (, which is available for all mobile platforms, gives easier, on-the-go access to the company’s Ingredients Inside program by offering content and functionality optimized for mobile device use.

The free application can be found in the iPhone App Store by typing in “Clorox ingredients.” The Ingredients Inside app will be available for other mobile devices soon.

Questions About MERS-CoV or Ebola?

MERS-CoV and Ebola currently represent a very low risk to the general public in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health partners continue to investigate and respond to the changing situation to prevent the spread of these viruses.

Because MERS and Ebola are considered highly virulent, they are not available for hard surface efficacy testing in the U.S. Therefore, no surface disinfectants have a registered claim with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to kill these specific viruses. However, to help prevent the spread of MERS, the CDC has issued interim guidance recommending use of "...a household disinfectant with a label that says EPA-approved." For a list of Clorox products that comply with the guidance, click here. EPA and the CDC have established criteria — disinfectants with EPA-registered claims against hard-to-kill non-enveloped viruses — for products that are likely to be effective against the Ebola virus. For a list of Clorox products that meet these criteria, click here. For more information on Ebola, visit the CDC Ebola Web Page.
