Glade plug-ins

Glade plugins have undisclosed ingredients but the rating is still higher than it should be. I have toxic reaction if any of these products are used at all so I know they have chemicals that are harmful/allergenic. I tried to comment on that specific product and I can't. Don't use these products!

  • SC Johnson does not currently disclose the specific ingredients in the "fragrance oils" used in Glade plugins, although the company's website indicates that this information "will be added soon." (http://www.whatsinsidescjohnson.com/e.... So at present it is not possible to tag the product with levels of health concern about specific ingredients, only to penalize the product for failing to disclose its ingredients.

    Hi Joyce,
    I don't suffer from any types of illnesses, and I am an otherwise very healthy person..but I can tell within 5 minutes if I enter a room that has one of those plugins in it. I start feeling sick on my stomach, my eyes and entire head start feeling like they are on fire..and if I stay in the room about 10 minutes, I start losing my voice. I loved these things at first...until I realized they make me SICK. In fact, today, my husband had to go to his workplace to clear snow from the entrance and salt down the sidewalks, so I waited in his office and planned how I was going to organize his office for him one day next week. Within 5 minutes, I started having the sick stomach and burning head sensation. I looked around at all the plugs, but there were no Glade plugins. I thought, wow, what is wrong with me...when I looked on counter in his office and behind a box, there sat 2 plugins (not plugged in...one full of scented oil, the other almost empty). It's not just in my head, and no, i am not crazy. These things really do make me sick as a dog. I am still feeling awful, and it is 10 hours later. Surely I can't be the only one who is having this type of reaction to Glade Plugins.

  • You should be penalizing products more severely if they fail to disclose their ingredients. Assume they are harmful for your health. Companies using safe ingredients disclose them!

  • In our current rating system, companies that don't disclose any ingredients at all are scored 0, while companies that disclose "generic" ingredient names (like the "fragrance oils" in the Glade Plugin products) are scored 4. As a result, the Glade products score below average, but not as poorly as "no disclosure" products. We are trying to use the lower range of our scoring system to incentivize product ingredient disclosure - so the penalty is greater for "no disclosure" manufacturers. Compared to many other household chemical companies, SC Johnson has actually been a leader in ingredient disclosure, even though it has not gotten to full disclosure yet. Full fragrance disclosure at the product level is difficult for many manufacturers because of confidentiality constraints established by fragrance providers. We think our differentiated scoring system reflects these kinds of differences.

  • I’m still nauseous
    This has happened to me a lot, and today's trip was so bad that I now wonder if the problem is that Glade products make me feel sick or that they are somehow counterfeits in Singapore. I took a photo of today's...
