Keep Cool, Keep Clean, Keep Safe
Some cleaning product guidelines:
- Cleaning products—including oven cleaners, drain cleaners, and toilet bowl cleaners—contain chemicals that burn the eyes or skin. It sounds far-fetched, yes, but accidents can happen anytime.
- Be careful about using chlorine or ammonia-based cleaners. These products can irritate the lungs and aggravate asthma symptoms.
- Some solvent cleaners like furniture polishers, degreasers, spot removers, and metal polishes are as flammable as they are toxic. You know what to do. Keep them away from fire and children.
- Corrosive products can cause some serious damage to the skin, and even furniture, when mishandled. Keep them away from children, and be careful about using them. For more information regarding this article, read how to choose a cleaning product.
