How can I reduce my exposure and my family's exposure?

Check household products, such as paint removers, glue, stain and spot removers, carpet spot removers, metal cleaners, and gun cleaners to see if they contain trichloroethylene or TCE. When possible, look for products that do not contain TCE. Be aware that these products may contain other harmful ingredients that you should avoid contact with. Follow the safety instructions on product labels, including wearing gloves and using the product in a well-ventilated area. Keep household chemicals safely locked away from children.
