Hard Surface Cleaning

Due to busy lifestyles, cleaning around the house has become more practice of spot cleaning high traffic areas, such as the kitchen and bathroom. And with the “iGeneration”, the desire to make things self-cleaning, automated and tech assisted is growing in numbers, so things have to be thought of in terms of immediate and continuous cleaning power.

Wipes still hold a high position in purchases made for this type of cleaning, however, there is a shift in thinking towards more sustainable practices, with a less wasteful impact. Furthermore, as fewer Millennials are buying houses with ample storage, multifunctionality in their product selection becomes more important.  Focus on delivering added benefits and efficacy to where consumers are spending their purchasing dollars.

Hard Surface cleaners have an opportunity for growth by incorporating soft surfaces to their applicability, and from soft surface cleaners comes the inspiration to include odor removing as well as a long-lasting scent that is complementary to one’s lifestyle, more like home fragrances, not the scents of traditional cleaning products. Considering essential oils and aromatherapy scents brings the holistic approach consumers are seeking.

As we mention a holistic approach, there is a shift in the attitude for antibacterial cleaners, consumers are becoming more aware of the balance of the home ecosystem and are looking to keep good bacterial but still kill bad bacteria. People are not only looking for on-contact germ-fighting but also continuously, again with no strong odors or fumes. Incorporating, enzymes, probiotics and using natural antibacterials will gain the trust of those looking for a germ-free but safer household.

 

Lastly, the desire for more time between re-cleaning high traffic areas when using either all-purpose or wipe applications is high. Focusing on automation in the cleaning process, or products that remove a step (such as no-rinse or wipedown, in bathroom cleaners) speak to those who are tuning out of a laborious cleaning routine with a caddy of cleaners.

“Convenience” is  delivering new user experiences through improved product functionality, added benefits and creative design
