Do Just One Thing

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL SPORTS - By Danny Seo

It sounds like a smart idea: Use stainand wa­ter-re­sis­tant out­door fur­ni­ture in­side the house. And why not? Many out­door fur­ni­ture pieces are gor­geous enough to work in­side. The prob­lem is that the fab­ric used to be tough-as-nails out­side is treated with chem­i­cals that are high in volatile or­ganic com­pounds. These VOCS can be emit­ted into the air and cause pol­lu­tion in­doors. Leave fur­ni­ture and fab­ric de­signed for out­door use out­side, and in­stead look for nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like wool, can­vas and cot­ton for in­door use.
