Are Cleaning Products Dangerous for Your Health?
The use of cleaning products is widespread, but how great a risk does your average bottle of furniture polish or bathroom cleaner pose to your health?
Any product, be it a bottle of household bleach or a ham and tomato sandwich, can be dangerous for your health - so everything we buy, use and consume in our homes and workspaces carries a potential hazard.
For example, if a seemingly harmless ham and tomato sandwich is out of date when eaten, you may well have a poorly tummy for a few days. If you’re allergic to tomato seeds, you could break out in a rash. If you eat too fast, you risk choking.
But by checking the sell-by-date, being aware of our allergies and chewing food properly, we avert hazard and reduce the risk of a sandwich related injury.
