Health Tip: Take it Easy on Chemical Cleaners

Especially if a family member has asthma
(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.
