Flammable Household Products
Several of the everyday items that people use in their homes for cleaning and repair can actually pose a huge threat to safety and health if they are not used and stored properly. Some of these items like household cleaners are extremely flammable and can even explode. Reactive products are those which, once exposed to air, water, or certain other chemicals, react by releasing poisonous fumes.
The Federal Hazardous Substances Act
In 1960, the Federal Hazardous Substances Act established labeling requirements for consumer products that contain hazardous substances. Products which contain hazardous substances must have a label on the front of their container including a warning and a description of the hazard.
Flammable Chemicals and Products
Some flammable chemicals and products include:
- Petroleum solvents
- Furniture polish
- Wood stain and varnish
Furniture polish is not only flammable, but mildly toxic. It is important to keep these chemicals and products stored in dry and concealed areas. Never store flammables in the same storage area as products and chemicals that are known to be corrosive. Keep rags that you use with flammable products in a sealed container.
