15 Ordinary Things We Have at Home That Can Be Dangerous


If you want to take care of your health, you might want to take a closer look at the things you use in your everyday life and replace them with harmless alternatives. Or you can just stick to some simple rules to avoid the dangers. For example, rubber toys in the bathroom can collect dangerous mold, so you should get rid of them as soon as possible.

We at Bright Side want to draw your attention to the ordinary things many people use every day not knowing about the hidden dangers to their health.

15. Sunscreen

Studies show that many sunscreens contain harmful chemicals that can disrupt the hormonal balance and even lead to tumors. Of course, this is only true for some sunscreens and only if they are used all the time, but we should still be careful.

Besides, our body needs sunlight and constant protection from the sun does more harm than good.

Solution: Choose only high-quality brands of sunscreen products and read the contents very carefully. They shouldn’t contain any carcinogens.

14. Spill-proof cups for children

Spill-proof sippy cups for kids are dangerous because some of them have parts that can’t be removed without being broken. Since there is no way to remove and clean them, mold grows inside and every time a child drinks from this cup the dangerous fungus gets inside their body.

Solution: Only buy cups with removable parts and wash them well after each use.
