Clorox Disinfecting Cleaners Won't Be Fully Stocked Until Summer, Says CEO The coronavirus pandemic has left disinfectant wipes and other germ-killing items in short supply. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends Clorox 4-in-1 Disinfecting Spray to best battle COVID-19. According to chairman and CEO Benno Dorer, it will take until summer for Clorox products to be fully stocked in stores. Benno Dorer, via Yahoo! Finance In a recent earnings call, Dorer said that unprecedented demand has hampered Clorox's supply chain. Thanks to a jump in purchases, the company says that its sales increased 15 percent in the third quarter. Benno Dorer, via earnings call To meet increased demand, Dorer added that Clorox's production plants have been operating 24/7. According to the Institute for Supply Management's Tom Derry, Shoppers will likely have an easier time buying disinfectant products by June. For the upcoming months, Derry added that periodic shortages may still linger on.
