Students and staff at the University in Providence, R.I. are evaluating both the impact and effectiveness of the cleaning products used throughout campus. According to The Brown Daily Herald, various students have evaluated the chemical composition and toxicity of various products over the years and revealed some interesting discoveries.

Some products that are being used contain more hazardous ingredients than others and are more dangerous than similar products. Others harbor ingredients that can cause "burns to eyes and skin."

The University continues to search for better alternatives, but are waiting for improved products that are Green Seal approved. In the meantime, the cleaning department has changed over the chemicals that have already received certification and have been very satisfied with the results.

University cleaners have made the switch to green certified chemicals where they could, but there are still a few products that are "on their list of things to change." And even these products aren't a problem if they are used correctly.
