Alphabet-soup of toxic chemicals

February 16, 2018

Take a look under any kitchen sink, or rummage around any utility room, and you will probably find dozens of different sprays and solutions, powders and products, all of them promising to take the hard work out of housework. 
A closer look will reveal an alphabet-soup of toxic chemicals and labels peppered with warnings about the hazards of inhaling noxious fumes, risks of skin irritation and the importance of keeping poisons away from children and pets. 

Many will also carry alerts advising against using different products at the same time — because if you mix everyday household cleaners you could accidentally create highly dangerous and sometimes explosive gases. Even seemingly harmless cleansers, such as vinegar and baking soda can be dangerous when mixed, or used alongside other cleaning products.
