Hazards Of Corrosive Cleaners

Here’s a partial list of hazardous cleaners and then a list of various chemical reactions:

  • Drain cleaners are perhaps the worst

    • “Symptoms of drain cleaner poisoning include:
      • Abdominal pain (severe)
      • Breathing difficulty due to throat swelling
      • Burns of the mouth and throat
      • Chest pain
      • Collapse
      • Diarrhea
      • Drooling
      • Loss of vision if the poison touched the eyes
      • Mouth pain (severe)
      • Rapid drop in blood pressure (shock)
      • Throat pain (severe)
      • Severe burns and tissue damage
      • Vomiting, often bloody
  • Obviously, Tide Pods induce vomiting and are extremely toxic.

    • What ingredients in laundry detergent are dangerous? Laundry detergent pods contain numerous chemicals that are potentially harmful if they are swallowed or otherwise ingested. Chief among these concerns is a chemical known as 1,4 Dioxane.  This chemical is an industrial solvent used in manufacturing and is banned in Europe.
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaners have hydrochloric acid.

    • Toilet Bowl Cleaners – Toilet bowl cleaning products are another landmine of toxic chemicals. Packed with acidic chemicals, they can harm your lungs when breathed in, and cause chemical burns when they come in contact with skin. Common toilet bowl cleaners usually contain chlorine bleach, hydrochloric acid, sodium bisulphate and phenol which can all cause severe chemical burns and blisters on the skin
  • Oven cleaners are alkaline just like common bleach

    • The same qualities that make oven and grill cleaners desirable and effective–dissolving tough, baked-on food and grease–also make them poisonous. Oven and grill cleaners often have a high pH, making them alkaline corrosives.
  • Floor wax

    • Formaldehyde, which has been linked to everything from asthma to reproductive problems to cancer, is also a key floor wax ingredient that should be avoided whenever possible. Other hazardous ingredients in traditional floor wax are nitrobenzene, perchloroethylene, phenol, toluene, and xylene.
  • Furniture polish

    • Furniture polishes cause irritation if they contact the skin. Many brands contain nerve-damaging flammable petroleum distillates, which are dangerous if swallowed. Some products contain formaldehyde, which is a suspected carcinogen. Spray furniture polishes can be easily inhaled and damage lung tissue.
