By on January 6, 2020

From certain paints to some detergents, common household items can contain toxic chemicals, says the Cleveland Clinic.

To protect yourself from household chemicals, Cleveland Clinic urges:

  • When working with oven cleaners, wear an apron, gloves and goggles.
  • 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.
  • Opt for non-toxic cleaners, if possible.
