Almost on all commercial cleaners stand warnings to keep away from children and avoid contact with skin. Filled with a variety of harmful chemicals, hazardous to health during a contact and with their evaporation into the air.Many housewives complain of damage to the skin of the hands especially from cleaning the cookers, and not everyone can easily work with rubber gloves on his hands.
Many will be surprised by the fact that many household products used in food preparation, etc.. may, well serve to "illumination" of the home.
