6. CLEANING SUPPLIES
Eating or inhaling cleaning supplies and laundry room products can harm your pet. Furthermore, harsh cleaners are bad for you, too.
A very serious toxic threat? Mixing ammonia and bleach products or applying both to the same surface. The mixture actually creates hazardous smog inside your residence. To improve the indoor air and protect your family and pets, make your own green cleaners, and use our nontoxic laundry tips. To further improve the quality of your air, ditch scented candles and air fresheners. Many contain phthalates, a class of hormone-disrupting chemicals.
