How to Read a Product Label

Reading the product label should be the first step in the cleaning process, not only to make sure the directions are understood, but most importantly for safety. It’s best to also have the material safety data sheets (MSDS) on hand to read at the same time so that all safety and protective information is clearly understood prior to chemical usage. The product labels and MSDS will list any precautions or protective gear the user will need, and whether or not any other cleaning chemicals will be dangerous to use at the same time (like using a bleach product and an ammonia product in quick succession).

All chemical manufacturers should provide a MSDS upon request. WAXIE even makes chemical MSDS available for download online at anytime day or night on our website:
