Infographic: Potentially unhealthy products and chemicals found in US homes

Do you know how healthy your home is? Many people don’t realize that they have hidden dangers lurking in their homes’ cabinets and closets. In some cases, your body comes into contact with dangerous chemicals that you don’t know about.

The Cleveland Clinic maintains a lengthy list of potentially unhealthy products and chemicals found in homes throughout the United States. The list includes some obvious dangers, such as antifreeze and motor oil. You already know that these products are dangerous, so you use them carefully. You may be shocked to learn that the list also includes some dishwashing detergents, all-purpose cleaners, and air fresheners. A close look at the ingredients found in these products reveals that many of them contain formaldehyde, ammonia, and other dangerous chemicals.

Safer alternatives to those unhealthy chemicals

Luckily, you have alternatives to household products that could harm your family’s health. Many companies realize that consumers would rather buy items that don’t contain harsh chemicals. For instance, Amway has been making a safe, biodegradable multi-purpose cleaner since 1959. It’s been formulating safer products for over half a century.

When you have the chance, it makes sense to choose household supplies that are good for your family and the planet. You have to look carefully, though. Even some products that call themselves “green” contain volatile organic compounds like ammonia and bleach.
