Rabbits, hamsters, rats and mice have traditionally been injected, gassed, force-fed and killed to test the ingredients that go into everyday household products such as washing up liquid, air fresheners and dishwasher tablets.
Cruelty-free companies have proven it is possible to make humane household products without testing on animals; yet tests like these are still allowed in the UK on chemicals for cleaning products.
In 2010, the UK Government pledged to ban the use of animals to test household cleaning products. Yet in 2013, it has still not published its final plans for the ban.
Please sign the petition and tell the government to ban testing for cleaning chemicals!
