If you avoid these household products next time you go shopping, you might be able to save your life and your home.
A personal injury attorney took to TikTok to reveal the products you’ll never find in his home, and his answers might just shock you.
Tom Bosworth (@TommyTheLawyer) says he avoids store-bought household cleaners.
“I know that sounds like a lot, really ‘everything’?” he said. “And my answer is yes.”
According to Tom, companies that make cleaning products don’t have to list the ingredients used.
“There is no legal obligation,” he said. “It’s not the FDA, it’s not the EPA, there’s no government agency that regulates this.”
He claims that there are “bad toxins” in several cleaning products that could be detrimental to a person’s health.
“The Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care did a study and found that inhaling cleaning products is as bad as smoking 20 cigarettes a day.”
The next item Tom doesn’t want to buy is antibacterial soap.
“Everyone thought antibacterial soap was the best because it kills all bacteria,” he said. “The problem with this is that our bodies need bacteria to fight off various diseases.”
Tom said that using antibacterial soap makes it harder for the body to fight off certain illnesses or diseases.
The final item – and one that caused a stir in Tom’s comments – was electric blankets.
“I know they’re comfortable,” Tom said. “I used one. They are really warm and beautiful.”
The problem with electric blankets, Tom says, is that there is evidence that the blankets can cause reproductive problems in women.
“There are incidents where people have suffered heat stroke,” he added.
Electric blankets have also been the cause of fires in homes.
“There was spontaneous combustion,” he said. “That means spontaneous fires broke out from these ceilings, causing really bad burns to people.”
Tom received more than 300 comments from people who were shocked that these everyday objects could make such a fuss.
“When your videos come on I feel a wave of fear go through my body,” one person wrote.
“You can have all my cleaning supplies,” wrote another person. “But you don’t take my electric blanket.”
“NOT THE HEATED BLANKET!” wrote a third person. “PAIN!”
