Cleaning Supplies And Their Hidden Dangers

Cleaning Supplies And Their Hidden Dangers

The American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) has recorded many exposures to household cleaning substances that were serious enough to require treatment in a health care facility.

Our pets are also at risk. Animals that don’t have access to clean, fresh water are more likely to drink out of puddles, gutters, toilet bowls, or any old container left sitting around with a liquid in it.
