Usually common household products (paints, cleaners, beauty products, air fresheners, etc) contain VOCs. "Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a large group of carbon-based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature. Breathing low levels of VOCs for long periods of time may increase some people’s risk of health problems. Each chemical has its own toxicity and potential for causing different health effects."
