How can I reduce my exposure to PFAS?

If you are concerned about PFAS exposure, it’s recommended that you consider avoiding the following consumer products:

  • waterproof clothing (look for water-resistant instead)
  • stain-resistant furniture and carpets 
  • grease-resistant restaurant containers and wrappers
  • non-stick cookware

PFAS Central also maintains a list of PFAS-Free brands and products.

Some home treatment devices (water filters) that meet NSF/ANSI Standards 53 and 58 are certified to remove PFAS. For more information, you can visit NSF International or the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. If you choose to use a home treatment device, please remember to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
