5 Safety Musts!

  • NEVER mix bleach with ammonia, vinegar, or other acids. Those combos can produce deadly gases.
  • ALWAYS wear gloves to protect skin.
  • Store safely. Keep all cleaners, including homemade ones, well labeled. Store them away from kids and pets.
  • When working with chemical cleaners, check warning labels, open windows and doors, and keep kids and pets far away from where you're cleaning.
  • Try a cleaner in a hidden spot before using it on a surface for the first time.
