Advice on Cleaning Products



2005-02-28
Many ordinary household products, such as cleaning fluids and garden-care products, are considered hazardous materials. An easy way to familiarise yourself with most household hazardous wastes is to look on container labels for danger symbols. They may be poisonous, corrosive, highly flammable, or even explosive.

When hazardous materials are disposed of improperly, they can be a threat to your health and to the environment. To help reduce the stress on the environment, use environmentally-friendly, biodegradable products to replace the toxic ones.

Recent studies by The Clean Water Fund (an American non-profit organisation), show that 65% of people involved in household cleaning product accidents are aged under seven. This statistic exemplifies, among other things, the necessity to use non-toxic cleaning products.
