Consumer Reports says a lot of calls are made to poison control centers each year because of glass cleaners.
While most cleaning products are required to post warnings on its packaging, companies don't have to on glass cleaners.
Dan DiClerico with Consumer Reports says "Many glass cleaners are roughly 90 percent water, but some contain ammonia or other potentially toxic ingredients, which cause nausea or vomiting if you ingest enough of them."
Consumer Reports say more than 9,000 calls were made to poison control centers during a recent year topping the calls for more-toxic drain cleaners.
Some glass cleaners do put safety information on the back of their bottles, but why don't all cleaners do that?
DiClerico says, "An industry insider I spoke with said it probably comes down to cost, a bottom line decision. One label simply costs less than two."
