The U.S. consumer is starting to turn around, Clorox CEO Donald Knauss told CNBC's "Closing Bell" on Friday.
"As the jobs continue to build a bit, we're seeing the (product) categories in the U.S. continue to recovery," the Clorox executive said. "With 70 percent of the economy driven by consumer spending, as people feel more confident about getting a job or keeping their own job, we think that will drive consumer confidence up."

Clorox said it has seen demand steadily increasing. Knauss said category growth in the U.S. was 1.5 percent to 2 percent.
