If you do a quick inventory of the chemicals in your home, I bet the list is long. Toilet bowl cleaners, medicine, cosmetics, tile cleaners, bathroom deodorizers, mouthwash, mothballs, nail polish remover, bleach and ammonia are found in the kitchen and bathroom of most homes. More than 90 percent of poisonings occur in the home and most are preventable if you can keep poison away from tiny fingers.
