Health Tip of the Day

5 Ways to Safely Store Toxins at Home

  • Keep hazards locked up. That means everything from household cleaning products to medicines and art supplies.

  • Pass up harmful products for less toxic or homemade mixes. Use baking soda and water instead of oven cleaner, for instance.

  • Buy over-the-counter drugs with childproof caps.

  • Never fill soda or food containers with something besides food.

  • Never store cleaners and foods on the same shelf.
