There is some inherent irony in the fact that household cleaning products, designed to eliminate any and all germs and build up in the home, are also capable of causing serious harm to the user. That said, there is true danger when considering how nonchalantly many families use the household cleansers, deodorants and toiletries that they stock in their homes. Even worse, just how poorly most families store these types of products. In fact, few would ever consider the dangerous nature of the improper storage of these products. Many families would rather prioritize convenience over safety when it comes to storage, which is where many tragedies occur. Consider this: a very impressionable young child may think that the vibrantly colored toilet cleaners are meant to be consumed, so if a family member were to leave this sort of cleaner where it’s accessible to a young child, there is a high chance of disaster. Rather than enabling this sort of situation, families can display some agency and begin taking household chemical storage more seriously. To learn how to do so, please see the resource paired alongside this post for more information.
