I’m a personal injury lawyer – the common household products you should never buy, some might even burn your house down
AVOIDING these household products the next time you go shopping might just save your life and your home.
A personal injury lawyer 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 any store-bought household cleaning supplies.
“I know that sounds like a lot, like, really ‘anything’?” he said. “And My answer is yes.”
According to Tom, companies that make cleaning supplies don’t have to list the ingredients that they use.
“There is no requirement under the law,” he said. “It’s not the FDA, it’s not the EPA, there is no governmental agency that regulates that.”
He claims that there were “bad toxins” in several cleaning products that could have adverse effects on a person’s health.
“The Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care did a study and they found that inhaling cleaning products is just as bad as smoking 20 cigarettes a day.”
The next item Tom says he refuses to buy is antibacterial soap.
“Everyone thought antibacterial soap was the best because it kills all the bacteria,” he said. “The problem with that is that our bodies need bacteria to fight off various illnesses.”
Tom said that using antibacterial soap makes it harder for the body to fight off certain illnesses or sicknesses.
The last item – and one that caused an uproar in Tom’s comments – was electric blankets.
“I know they’re comfortable,” said Tom. “I’ve used one. They’re really warm and nice.”
The problem with electric blankets, according to Tom, is that there is evidence to suggest that the blankets can cause reproductive issues in women.
“There are incidents where folks have suffered heat stroke from them,” he added.
Electric blankets have also been the cause of fires inside homes.
“There have been spontaneous combustion,” he said. “Meaning spontaneous fires have erupted from these blankets that have caused really bad burns with people.”
Tom received more than 300 comments from people who were shocked that these everyday items could cause such a fuss.
“When your videos come, I feel a wave of anxiety rush through my body,” wrote one person.
“You can have all my cleaning supplies,” wrote another person. “But you’re not taking my electric blanket.”
“NOT THE ELECTRIC BLANKET!” wrote a third person. “BUMMER!”
