Given the copious amount of hechshers out there, I wonder whether it's frustrating for those Jews who take these things seriously to navigate through them. Has there ever been a discussion about adopting one universal symbol? In any case, that's not my question for today. Today's question is:
What's with the hechshers on non-food products?
In our kitchen I found four different non-food items with three different hechshers:
plastic wrap tin foil
wax paper Ziploc Baggies
And in our laundry room/ cleaning supplies closet:
fabric softener detergent
paper towel bleach
Come again. What?!
BLEACH!! Yes. Bleach.
From an internet search:
Mouthwash Co2 Canister
Dishwasher Gel The cosmetics don't have hechshers, AFAIK.
However, there is a letter on the web-site from Rabbi
Eliyahu Shuman confirming Star K certification for Pesach 2011.
And just for fun:
