Details

In answer to consumers’ pleas, The Clorox Company redesigned its cleaning-product bottles to include SMART TUBE® Technology with a bayonet-style trigger that allows consumers to empty a spray bottle without tilting, shaking or otherwise struggling to use the last drops. Bottles made with SMART TUBE® Technology feature a dip tube blown into the front of the bottle and a new all-plastic trigger. The fact that consumers can use every drop reduces about 81,000 gallons of wasted formula annually.
