Regulated by: SARA (Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act), CAA (Clean Air Act), Clean Water Act (oil spills) Of all of the hazardous chemicals in my home, bleach is the only one I keep stored inside the house. All others are stored in tall cabinets in my garage as I have young children and a small farm with many roaming animals that would be susceptible to ingestion if any were within reach or could be easily spilled or knocked over. The vast majority of cleaning within my home is done using white vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils. I made the switch to healthier cleaning products about 10 years ago after having children and diving into just how dangerous lots of household cleaners can be! At that time, the push for healthier alternatives to cleaners with harsh chemicals was just beginning so initially I had to mix/create my own cleaners for various purposes but in the past 10 years many companies have opted to formulate their own green alternatives that can be bought ready to use from the store, which is an amazing advancement compared to what was considered the norm and used regularly throughout the 90s when I was growing up. I do clean my floors and bathrooms with dilute bleach every now and then as I home a lot of different animals, including rehabilitating wildlife that can carry various parasite and microorganisms that could be transmitted or unsafe if ingested by other critters or humans. As far as the hazardous chemicals in my garage, these are primarily for vehicles and farm equipment and (as far as I know) there are not any alternatives to using these products. I also do a lot of building and renovating furniture and create a lot of upcycled art, which is why I have a variety
of different paints, enamels, and stains. These are also stored safely in my garage and only used during projects.
