Health Tip: Protect Yourself From Household Chemicals

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
