Beware Of Asbestos in Older Consumer Products

The Presence of Asbestos in Everyday Older Household Products

Products that contain asbestos are all around us especially the older items manufactured from 1940 – 1975.   Today, watch groups keep a close eye on manufactured products that could contain asbestos, ensuring that the harmful mineral is not still being used.   If you are a collector, working with older appliances or a do-it-yourself repair man you should be very aware of it’s presence in items.

Asbestos fibers are hundreds of times thinner than a human hair.  When fibers become airborne, either during a repair or released from damage products, they can easily be inhaled.  The fibers lodge deep in the lungs or other organs, irritating the tissue and causing grave illnesses that may not appear for a decade to more than half a century.

These are but a small sampling of the thousands of products that contained asbestos.

  • Hairdryers
  • Irons and frayed electrical cords
  • Old portable electric heaters
  • Portable dishwashers
  • Asbestos in Vermiculite Garden Products
  • Old children’s toys
  • Coffee Pots
  • Toasters

  • Wood burning stoves
