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.
