    Headaches from Bathroom Cleaner
    Two days ago, I thoroughly cleaned my shower with Kaboom tile cleaner. Ever since then I've been having random heaches. I'm not a general headache sufferer so I'm concerned it might be associated from inhaling too much of the Kaboom fumes. Along with the headaches, I get the feeling I'm going to be sick. Should I be concerned and is there anything to relieve the headaches or should I just wait it out and see what happens in a weeks time?
    Thanks, TJ

    Did you use anything else that may have mixed with it?

    No, not a thing. I know the dangers about mixing household cleaners. One of my friend's face puffed up like cotton candy when he mixed bleach with something else. This was straight up Kaboom.

    Do not use any more cleaners. Go Green. White vinager and baking soda do an amazing job in cleaning lots of things and it is not harmful and is cheap to buy.

    From now on, make sure your room is properly ventilated. Any substance can cause a reaction, whether allergic or not, if not properly ventilated. These are chemicals and can cause a wide variety of reactions.

    When I use cleaners in the bathroom I turn the exhaust fan on. This helps to reduce any fumes.

    How about getting one of those new automatic shower cleaners - press a button and it sprays the shower with a cleaner - you don't even have to be in the vicinity. Has anyone tried these?

    No, but I bet they are very expensive.
