Health Tip: Take it Easy on Chemical Cleaners
(HealthDay News) -- Using harsh chemical cleaners can be irritating for people who have asthma, especially children.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offers these suggestions:
- Change cleaners if you find that one in particular aggravates asthma.
- When you have to use an irritating product, make sure the affected family member is not nearby.
- Run a fan and open all doors and windows when using the chemical.
- Read the chemical's label and follow all instructions for use.
