  1. What craziness are you saying, are these products not use to kill off bacteria, but I guess the bacteria killing off the products, or is it time to ramp up the products to add their vital vitamin C to its products. 2022 should be called ‘ THE REMAKE OF ADVERSE REACTION ‘.

    • The difference is in what is a cleaning product and what is a disinfectant. The scented PineSol are CLEANERS. Meaning they will remove dirt and grime but do not specifically kill germs and bacteria.
      DISINFECTANTS can kill germs and bacteria.
      People like thing that smell “nice”.
