9:11 am
in mind when it comes to cleaning products.first, check the labels. the american lung association suggests choosing products that have no, or low amounts of things called voc's -- volatile organic compounds. many cleaning products, such as aerosol sprays and chlorine bleach, release these dangerous chemicals these gases can irritate your eyes, nose and throat, make you nauseous, and can even damage your central nervous system. also, make sure the room or space you are cleaning is ventilated. this will help diffuse the noxious airborne chemicals.if you're using harsher cleaners like bleach, wear gloves or other protective clothing to avoid contact with your skinfor those who want to stay away from chemicals all together, natural cleaners like soap and warm water can do the trick. baking soda works when you need some scrubbing action, and a mixture of vinegar and water can be used to clean glass.for today's health minute, i'm meredith wood.
