Put down those cleaning products because science says cleaning your house is bad for your health. Get this - researchers warn that it’s as bad for your lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day for 20 years.
Breathing in the chemicals in cleaning products raises the risk for asthma by 43% and scientists say they damage to the lining of the airways and can affect the way they work long-term. Those facing the biggest risk are professional cleaners and women, but somehow men seem to be unaffected.
“Cleaning chemicals very likely cause substantial lung damage,” explains Oistein Svanes from Bergen University in Norway. “Think of particles from cleansers meant for floors, not lungs, and maybe it’s no surprise.”
And as great as it would be to use this research as an excuse to give up cleaning our homes, most of us don’t want to live in filth. So scientists suggest swapping the cleaning chemicals for microfiber cloths and water to clean instead.
Cheaters are using dating apps and they have an easier time getting away with it. But if you think someone’s not being upfront about their relationship status, here are some red flags to help you spot an online cheater, according to Meredith Golden, online dating expert.
They only message you during the day - If you never hear from this person outside business hours, that could mean they’re sneaking around and can only reach out when they aren’t with their partner.
They never want to meet - If you’ve exchanged a few messages online and they don’t want to meet up in person, it could be a warning sign they’re already involved with someone else. If they brush off your request for a date and won’t talk about taking the relationship offline, maybe they’re just using the dating app to boost their ego.
They have questionable photos with other people - The signs of cheating aren’t always subtle. That woman in the photos with him who isn’t his sister and made you suspicious? She really could be his partner after all.
They admit they're looking for side action - And some cheaters are upfront about the fact they’re looking for someone on the side. But just because they’re honest about it with you doesn’t mean their S.O. is on-board with the arrangement and you don’t have to be either.

Moms already know Target always has adorable baby clothes, but shopping with an infant isn’t always convenient. So as much as we love pushing a red cart through the store to get all the goodies on our list, Target is making it easier to keep your little one stocked in clothes that fit with a new baby outfit subscription box service.
Boxes from Target’s Cat and Jack line will be full of six to seven pieces of clothing in your kiddo’s size, and they’ll throw in a surprise gift. The boxes are $40 and they come seasonally, so your baby will always be ready for the weather and be in style.
But if you don’t want to sign up for regular shipments, you can also buy just a single box to refresh your tot’s wardrobe or give as a wonderful shower gift. You can also modify sizes you want by using your online Target account or opt to skip a shipment altogether, like when Grandma goes overboard shopping for your baby. And even if your kid only makes the scene at the pediatrician’s office, at least they’ll be the best-dressed one there.
