Pine-Sol is a registered trade name of Clorox for a line of household cleaning products. Although the original Pine-Sol formulation is pine oil based, all other cleaners sold under the Pine-Sol brand do not contain pine oil at all.
- As of 2008, the currently available original formulation lists 8-12% pine oil, alkyl alcohol ethoxylates, sodium petroleum sulfonate and isopropyl alcohol as reportable ingredients on the material safety data sheet.
- Scented Pine-Sol has six different fragrances and was developed in response to consumers who did not like the strong scent of pine oil but still wanted a strong cleaner.
Pine-Sol is mainly used to clean grease and heavy soil stains and is antibacterial (original formula only) on non-porous surfaces. It is not recommended for direct use on wood surfaces (such as untreated hardwood floors) but can be used on hardwood floors coated with a sealant.
