Dry cleaned Clothes
According to the American Cancer Society, a dangerous substance that’s hidden in your closet is trichloroethylene, a chemical that may stick to clothes and items that have been dry cleaned. Inhalation of this transparent liquid vapor can damage the central nervous system, with symptoms similar to those of alcohol poisoning including headaches, dizziness, and confusion to the point of loss of consciousness and death. In addition to this, the substance is suspected to be carcinogenic. Therefore, the next time you give your clothes to the dry cleaners, don’t forget to make sure that they don’t use detergents containing trichloroethylene or other chemicals that could unknowingly endanger your health.
