Cleaning products are among the most toxic products you will find in your home. The real safety or danger of cleaning products is difficult to assess because manufacturers are not required by law to list exact ingredients on the label.  Most toxic ingredients are listed on the product's material safety data sheet (MSDS), but some are protected. 

Come along to this workshop and learn about some alternatives to choose from.
