Weekly Cleaning Tip: Medicine Cabinet
When is the last time you took a look at your medicine cabinet and threw out old pills? It is not something that a lot of us think about doing on a regular basis, nonetheless it is very important to do so. Storing old and unused medication can put your family in danger. Also, using expired medication as a "self-treatment" can put your life at risk as a lot of times expired medication may not have the same effect that it once did when it was first prescribed.
One of the many ways to dispose of old medicine is asking your local pharmacy if they participate in medication disposal.
