Household Hazardous Chemical Safety Tips
Only store household chemicals in places children can't get to them. Lock or childproof cabinets and storage areas if you have children in your home.
Keep products containing hazardous materials in their original containers and never remove the labels unless the container is corroding. Corroding containers should be repackaged and clearly labeled.
Never store hazardous products in food containers.
Never mix household hazardous chemicals or waste with other products. Some chemicals, such as chlorine bleach and ammonia, may react, ignite or explode.
Never use hair spray, cleaning solutions, paint products or pesticides near an open flame.
Clean up any chemical spills immediately. Allow the fumes in the rags to evaporate outdoors, then dispose of the rags by wrapping them in a newspaper and placing them in a sealed plastic bag in your trash can.
