Lake Villa, Illinois; March, 2014 —Burnishine Products' award-winning Thumbs Up Hand Cleaner exceeds new California VOC standards for hand cleaners that became effective January 1, 2014. New regulations require hand cleaners to contain 1% or less of VOC's. Thumbs Up comes in at 0.1%, well below the new limit. In addition, Thumbs Up uses microscrubbers that are safe for the environment. Roger Giza, President of Burnishine, commented saying, "Printers can feel confident knowing Thumbs Up is an effective hand cleaner that is safe for them, and kind to the environment. Unlike some microbeads, ours are easily filtered out at water treatment plants."
