If you've gone out to try to find disinfecting wipes, you might've felt a bit discouraged as the shelves are still empty! Well Clorox, the world’s biggest maker of disinfectant cleaning materials, just said that consumers will continue to see a shortage of wipes and other products into 2021 ! This is due to the overwhelming demand during the pandemic. Clorox said they have aggressively ramped up production for its cleaning products, but it still won’t be enough especially with wipes. According to Clorox President and CEO-elect Linda Rendle,
“Given the fact that cold and flu sits in the middle of the year, and then we expect the pandemic to be with us for the entirety of the year, it will take the full year to get up to the supply levels that we need to be at. Frankly, we thought we would be in a better position by now, but demand in Q4 exceeded our expectations. We’re certainly not at all happy with our service levels for our retail customers on many products. We have a high sense of urgency on this with all hands on deck.”
