Reducing Toxins in Your Home.


Reducing Toxins in Your Home.



 



You may be surprised to discover that many common household products contain chemicals that could cause discomfort or harm to family members. If you are concerned about your indoor air quality (IAQ), take the time to check the labels on the products you have purchased. While arsenic and formaldehyde are commonly known, there are many other chemicals that are also worth examination.



 



Check government agencies and consumer-advocate websites for comprehensive lists of chemicals to be wary of throughout your home. Then, go through each room and consider the ingredients in the following products:



 



Bathroom: Cosmetics, soaps and skin softeners



 



Kitchen: Cleaning agents, aerosol sprays and air fresheners



 



Laundry: Detergents, fabric softeners and stain treatments



 



Living Areas: Synthetic fabrics, including carpets, drapery and treated furnishings (e.g. pressed wood)



 



Storage: Solvents, furniture stripper, paints, varnish, polish and insecticides
