Which Traditional Household Products Can Cause Illness?

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Keeping your family healthy and safe is more than important, and you likely have cleaners and sanitizers on hand to help with this.  You take your children to the doctor, and you ensure that your home is clean.  However, did you know that common household products might actually be making your family sick?  Illness caused by common products used in your home can be very serious.

What sort of illnesses might these household products cause? Many medical professionals have tied harsh cleansers to a higher incidence of asthma and other lung conditions.  You might also find that fumes from cleaners can cause headaches and allergy-like symptoms, as well.  If you have a child that suffers from eczema, the most likely cause is common household products like soap, or the detergent used to wash their clothing and bedding.

What can you do to combat this problem?  A number of household products are now being made with natural ingredients, or you can opt to replace harsh cleansers and other products with natural solutions.  For instance, rather than using a harsh glass cleaner, you might choose to use a mixture of water and vinegar.  You might choose to use natural soap, rather than man-made products.  You could choose to replace your regular detergent with one specifically formulated to be gentle on sensitive skin, as well.  There are many different products that can be replaced to help alleviate sickness in your family.
