Play It Safe with Household Chemicals

Common household items such as paint and cleaning supplies can contain toxic chemicals. The Cleveland Clinic recommends the following safety tips: wear an apron, gloves, and goggles when working with oven cleaners; ensure that the area you’re using chemicals in is well ventilated; wear latex dishwashing gloves when using antibacterial cleaners; wash your hands immediately if you get chemicals on your skin; and opt for non-toxic cleaners, if possible.
