Safety in the Kitchen

Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your house. This room is part of what makes a house a home. Many people have fond memories in the kitchen from holiday meals. It is also a room that is used on a daily basis. However, it is also a room full of dangerous items.

There are obvious dangers, of course. There is your knife block full of sharp knives, and the fire from your stove. However, there are other dangers as well, and the obvious ones can become even more dangerous in certain situations.

Most people keep a lot of cleaning products in the kitchen. These products are very useful and necessary, but they can also be dangerous. There are many cleaning products that include ammonia. While this is a powerful cleaning agent, it is also reactive when it comes in contact with bleach. The result is a highly toxic fume. Unfortunately, this may not be labeled on your cleaning products.

In addition, there are certain things that you may keep in your kitchen that can explode when they are heated too much. While some of these are labeled, that is not always the case. When something explodes in the kitchen there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Fires are always a hazard, and so is shrapnel when there is an explosion.
