    Introduction: Domestic contaminants have various adverse health effects from early life, some of the most important harmful effects are perinatal disorders, infant mortality, respiratory disorders, allergy, malignancies, cardiovascular disorders, increase in stress oxidative, endothelial dysfunction, mental disorders, and various other harmful effects. The aim of this study is to present the results of a survey that was conducted to evaluate the knowledge regarding domestic contaminants and its harmfulness in the society among homemakers. Materials and Methods: Hundred homemakers from various localities were contacted through social media such as WhatsApp and email and were asked to participate in the study by filling up an online survey on domestic contaminants. The questionnaire consisted of 19 questions based on domestic contaminants in the household and its knowledge. Results: Homemakers were partially aware of the basic knowledge of domestic contaminants and various household contaminants. However, their knowledge of the management of those wastes is questionable. Based on the responses from the survey, about 76% of the homemakers are aware of domestic contaminants. Conclusion: From the above study, it is evident that the knowledge regarding the management of domestic contaminants is less in homemakers. Proper education should be provided for effective management of non-biodegradable wastes.
