The annual ISSA Innovation Award program provides the cleaning industry the opportunity to determine the industry's most innovative products and services. For the past few months, industry professionals have voted online and at the ISSA Conference for the best products in five categories: cleaning agents, dispensers, equipment, services & technology and supplies.

"Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes conveniently tackle a diverse range of commercial cleaning and disinfecting needs to deliver a powerful and cost-efficient solution that allows cleaning professionals to do more in less time," said Jennifer Case, Associate Director of Marketing, Clorox Professional Products Company. "We are honored to once again be recognized by ISSA and the cleaning industry and this latest win further validates our unyielding commitment to developing innovative product solutions to meet our customer's needs."

In addition to nine new EPA-registered disinfecting claims, Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes now have 12 allergen-removal claims[1], and offer 10-second sanitization – the fastest contact time available for bacteria.[2] Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes are compliant with OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standards[3], which applies to occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials.
