Cleaning products, insecticides, air fresheners…
Cleaning products are a major way in which toxins enter our homes. We tend to accumulate a vast amount of strong chemical cleaning products without stopping to think about the effects they could have on our health.
Household pesticides, as well as the chemicals that are emitted when we use them, can also cause residual pollution that stays in our homes.
Household air fresheners also emit a cocktail of harmful substances, some of which are carcinogenic. Sprays are another major example of this because, as well as the well-documented issue of CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), they can contain substances such as solvents in which we find some dangerous hydrocarbons.
