Companies provide good labels. Read them and pay attention to these words: Caution, Warning and Danger.
1. Caution: This indicates a product that might harm you, if it gets into your eyes or you inhale the fumes.
2. Warning: Not quite as serious, but this could cause sickness and often it means that the product could catch fire.
3. Danger: Be very careful when you use this product. If it not used in the right way, a family member could become ill or have a medical crises.
