Calls to poison control for contact with cleaning products have sky rocketed in the last few months. So good news, it seems people are cleaning but the bad news is they don’t appear to know how to do it safely.
Calls included many that were due to effects of bleach exposure but others had to do with the mixing of cleaning products. Pro tip, don’t mix bleach products with ammonia products, you will die. In any case, the uptick is likely caused by people suddenly cleaning everything in order to be safer from covid-19.
Cleaning is good but be careful these are still harmful chemicals, especially when the proper safety precautions aren’t followed. Wear gloves, keep out reach of children, and always follow the directions printed on the bottle.
