Ever wonder if that oven cleaner or lighter fluid or antibacterial soap or kitty litter really is bad for you?  And if it is, what is the ingredient that makes it so harmful?  Who would possibly track that sort of information?

The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services now has a Household Products Database whose sole purpose is to provide health and safety information on household products. 

Not only do they list common products and their harmful ingredients, but they also list the name of the  manufacturer, their address and their phone number.  Cross references are available for other products by the same manufacturer, products with similar usage and products with some of the same ingredients.

Try the database here.  You may–or may not– be glad you did!
