What do the different colors (red, green, blue, yellow) mean with towels, mops, etc?

Unger developed the SmartColor Coding System as a guideline for identifying which areas your Unger cleaning products are designed for. This system is to help prevent cross-contamination.

The colors signify areas as follows:

  • Red: Restrooms, High-Bacteria Areas
  • Yellow: Specialty Areas, Laboratories, Gymnasiums
  • Green: Breakrooms, Kitchens, Food Service Areas
  • Blue: General Areas, Low-Risk Bacteria Areas, Offices, Lobbies, Classrooms
