Our Caretaker, Marie, would like to remind everyone to be mindful when using household cleaning products. Many common household cleaners contain ingredients that can react with each other in dangerous ways. For instance, bleach (sodium hypochlorite) releases highly toxic fumes when mixed with ammonia and alcohol(isopropanol), found in hand sanitizer, reacts with bleach to make chloroform. Be sure to read the ingredients and instruction labels for each product. Keep in mind which chemicals you have previously used on surfaces, thoroughly wash with water if switching to a new type of cleaner. For more information on common cleaners and their ingredients go to whatsinproducts.com. If unsafe chemicals have been mixed together get to fresh air immediately and call poison control at 1-800-222-1222. They will ask what you have been exposed to specifically, instructed you on what to do next, and tell you if going to the ER or calling 911 is necessary. Since both the ER and 911 will call poison control to figure out what they need to do, it is suggested to call poison control first, unless someone can not breathe, collapses, or has a seizure. You can put this print out with your cleaning supplies to help remind your household to use everyday chemicals safely.
