Lightly misting your home’s air with the fresh scent of your choice to coat the odors that you smell when you do the quick sniff test in your home. Spraying air freshener in your home for many people is a quick fix for lingering stinky smells in your air but in reality, this quick fix is a long-lasting decision. The Journal of Toxicological Sciences published information in 2015 concluding that air fresheners and plug-in fresheners contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that get released into our environment. VOC’s are hazardous air pollutants that when combined with nitrogen oxides reacts to form smog that contributes to climate change.

Chemical-Filled Deodorant SprayChemical-Filled Deodorant Spray

An essential part of everybody’s morning routine like mine is using deodorant spray on your body to rid away foul body odors. Aersole spray deodorants, however, can be very toxic to your home’s air and for your own personal health. The Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) consistently rates deodorant sprays like Axe, Old Spice, and other commercial body sprays as a moderate-to-high health hazard. With the aerosol, the fine mist of spray is easily inhaled because many don’t follow the label and end up using the spray in confined spaces which increase potential health hazard to the person using the product. Experts have cautioned those that use deodorants of the possible dangers it can lead to from inhaling the chemicals such as allergic skin reactions, asthma, and breathing difficulties.

Hazardous Commercial Cleaning Products

Ammonia is one of the most widely produced chemicals in the United States. It is also one of the most common chemicals used in a variety of household cleaners. This chemical, however, can be quite dangerous! If a product contains more than 5% ammonia, it has to be labeled as poisonous. Poisonous? We are essentially using a poisonous chemical in our homes to “keep our home clean”. Does anybody else see something wrong with that statement? Using a poisonous chemical to clean your home, as you can imagine will possibly leave you with health issues. According to the TOXNET, short-term exposure to ammonia can irritate, burn, and even damage the eyes and skin, and in the long-term create respiratory issues and shortness of breath. It is vital when buying cleaning products to ensure the products are safe to use in your home!
