Kutol Innovates and Improves Hand Care Products

Kutol Dispenser Upgrades When they received multiple comments that the base of the refill dock on the Counter-Mount Dispenser was causing some rusting issues, Kutol sought a solution.  They replaced the stainless steel sleeve with a chrome-plated pump housing, creating a more durable alternative.  Additionally, the pump assembly itself is now made of durable plastic parts. In addition to improving the pump, Kutol also eliminated the adhesive gasket on the base of the Pump Assembly, after determining that a bead of waterproof silicone caulk would hold up better over time.  For more information and a video tutorial, please see the...

Clorox Innovates Cleaning with New Smart Tube Bottles

As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for,” but with certain cleaning products packaging design, that isn’t always true. Have you ever had to consolidate partial bottles because they were too empty to work properly? Have you had to tilt the sprayer at awkward angles just to squeeze out those last few drops or avoid misfires? Or worse yet, have you just thrown away the entire bottle with product still in it-  just because your spray tube wasn’t long enough to reach the bottom? Clorox recognized that this problem was generally universal when it comes to the current...

Your customers may have already noticed an exciting new packaging change from Clorox, which became effective at the beginning of this year.

Proctor & Gamble is converting case packaging of their 1 Gallon bottles of Dawn and Joy Commercial Dishwashing detergents. The change is no surprise to many in the industry, as the current industry standard uses case packs of 4/1 Gallon, whereas Dawn and Joy, until recently, was sold in 3/1 gallon case packs. Nothing about the product itself or the individual bottles’ packaging will change, but the case pack change does support P&G’s commitment to sustainability. P&G’s sustainability/operations goal for the future is as follows: “Deliver an additional 20% reduction in energy consumption, CO2 emissions, disposed waste and water consumption...
