When working with oven cleaners, wear an apron, gloves and goggles.
Ensure that the area you're using chemicals in is well-ventilated.
Wear latex dishwashing gloves when using antibacterial cleaners.
Wash your hands immediately if you get chemicals on your skin.
Opt for non-toxic cleaners, if possible.
