Everything I clean my hardwood floors I get a headache and get stuffy.  Could my hardwood cleaning product be causing this?

RE: reaction to hardwood cleaning
That is very possible.  Here is a list of products to avoid when cleaning flooring

* Must NOT contain carcinogens.
* Must NOT contain any ozone depleting compunds, greenhouse gases or substances that contribute to smog.
* Must NOT be corrosive or itrritating to the skin or eyes.
* V.O.C. levels must meet or be less volatile than the California Code of Regulations maximum allowable V.O.C. level for various categories
* Must NOT be delivered in aerosol cans with a petrochemical propellant.
* Must NOT contain petrochemical-derived fragrances.
* Must NOT contain dyes.
* Must NOT contain any chemicals under Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act.
* Must NOT constitute hazardous wastes.
* Must NOT contain heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, cadium, cobalt, chromium, mercury, zinc, nickel and/or selenium.
* Must NOT contain petroleum distillates and must NOT be combustible.
* Must be "Biodegradable"
* Must NOT contain chlorinated solvents.
* Must NOT contain persistent or bio-accumulative substances.
* Must NOT contain optical brighteners.

Though it is for carpet cleaning, the same applies to hardwood cleaning products. I would try googling to see if anyone else has had a similar reaction to your product.
