Are 'Green' Cleaners Really Green?

Supposedly "green" cleaners may not be as green as you think. You're probably being exposed to chemicals even if you're using presumably eco-friendly household cleaners, laundry detergents, air fresheners or personal-care products around the house, a new study suggests. Some of those chemicals are toxic.

Tests of 25 commonly used scented products, including some marketed as natural or green but also conventional ones, found 133 chemicals all told (24 of them toxic), with an average of 17 chemicals emitted per product, according to the University of Washington study published in the journal Environmental Impact Assessment Review.
