Survey of Chemical Substances in Consumer Products No. 106, 2011

Survey of chemical substances in cleaning products for ovens, cookers and ceramic cooktops

01-02-2011

Products for cleaning of ovens or the like and for stainless steel care available in retail shops have been mapped and analysed for contents of organic solvents, and for a limited number of products, for contents of PFOS compounds too. The use of the cleaning products was assessed not to cause any critical impact on neither the user’s health nor the environment. However, the assessment showed that some of the products contained organic solvents in concentrations, which in special cases may be critical for health and environment. It is recommended among others to minimise the use and the number of different cleanings products in private households and to avoid products classified as harmful.
