By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Household Products industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Orchids Paper Products ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 21.39. Following is Energizer with a a P/E ratio of 21.43. Kimberly-Clark ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 22.20.
