When consumers buy commercial cleaning products, we expect them to do one thing: clean!  We use many detergents, bleaching agents and specialized cleaners  to keep our toilet shiny and nice-smelling. But while the

chemicals in cleaners foam, bleach and disinfect to make our bathtubs and toilet bowls clean and germ-free, many also contribute to indoor air pollution, are poisonous if ingested, and can be harmful if inhaled or touched. In fact, some cleaners are among the most toxic products found in the home. In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers, accounting for over 200 000 calls and many of these exposures involved children under six, who can swallow or spill cleaners stored or left open inside the home.

Some of the cleaning ingredients cause acute, or immediate, hazards such as skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, or chemical burns, while others are associated with chronic, or long-term, effects such as cancer.Corrosive ingredients in toilet bowl cleaners are severe eye, skin and respiratory irritants and some of them contain sulfates, which may trigger asthma attacks in those with asthma.
