Staying Safe with Cleaning Products

In order to best ensure the health of your household, a regular cleaning of your home is absolutely essential. Unfortunately, household cleaning products, including but not limited to soap, fragrances, and grooming supplies, often include harmful chemicals. At any given time, the average household will store three to twenty five gallons of toxic materials, found mostly in these various cleaning agents. The cleaning industry generates more than $168 billion globally in annual revenue, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics show the average household annually spends $345 to $854 on cleaning products, with these numbers varying by region, education, income, age, and household size.

The types of health hazards cleaning agents pose will vary per product. With some chemicals the damage is immediate (acute) and can include hazards such as respiratory irritation, headaches, sneezing, watery eyes, or chemical burns. A number of fragrances added to common cleaning agents can easily contribute to allergic reactions such as these. Other chemicals are associated with long-term damage (chronic) such as multiple forms of cancer or hormone disruption. These long term effects can include decreased sperm count in men using these products or numerous birth defects when exposed to women who are pregnant.
