6 toxins that lurk in your home

Germs aren't the only culprits! Household items could be to blame, too

Here are the sources of six of the biggest household toxins - some that you can remedy today in less than a few minutes.

Mattresses
Most mattresses are made using polyurethane and formaldehyde, and are treated with chemical flame-retardants (PBDEs).

Shower curtains
The No. 1 thing you can do to improve the health quality of your home today is to get rid of all vinyl shower curtains, which are made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) that contain toxic chemicals.

Cleaning products
Avoid chlorine bleach, ammonia, and other acid-based cleaning products, which can not only irritate your eyes and skin, but can also cause respiratory problems.

Kitchenware
Teflon-coated pans and plastics contain carcinogens. We have heard a lot in the media about both Teflon and plastic and their potential hazards to our health and it is confusing to keep track of which cookware and which plastics are safe or not.

Paints
Most house paints are made with toxic chemicals like Benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene that release low-level off-gases into the air off-gases that are so powerful that they continue to permeate the air years after the paint has been applied.

Carpet
The glue that is typically used to install wall-to-wall carpet is laden with VOCs. It is best to use natural fiber area rugs whenever possible, like sisal, jute, wool, or cotton.
