Commercial stain-removing products are often hazardous to humans, wildlife and the environment. Product labeling can be deceptive and often include a combination of chemicals and solvents that are nerve-damaging neurotoxins (e.g., benzene, toluene, xylene), carcinogenic (e.g., formaldehyde), severe skin and eye irritants and may have adverse reproductive effects. Consider switching to stain removers made from plant oils or the home remedy solutions in the tables below.
