Dubai: Apart from being a health hazard, the chemical affluents flushed out of our homes cause serious environmental pollution in terms of contaminating water.

Did you know that one of the major causes of water pollution are phosphates that are a constituent of detergents and other cleaning products?

When phosphates reach our water bodies, they clog our seas causing the unchecked growth of algae that suffocates marine life destroying fishing spots and scenic beaches around the world. It is important for us to gather more knowledge about the proper usage and storage of these products to keep them out of range from children who are usually victims of poisoning and accidents that take place at home.

It is not difficult to avoid these accidents that are waiting to happen in any home. All you need to do is understand what you are buying, learn the best and optimal use and take care to store it carefully for reuse and also make a mental note of how you can minimise the use of chemicals at home by opting out for chemical-free household remedies
