New Scientist - Attack of the household products: Hygiene’s hidden risks
This is a fascinating article referencing Anne Steinemann from the University of Melbourne in Australia. It highlights the lack of legislation required by companies to list what is in their cleaning products and the fact that current tests around the safety of cleaning products only look at individual ingredients, not what happens when ingredients are mixed.
In the UK alone there are a few hospital admissions each year when people mix compounds that can create toxic gasses.
