Beautiful Killers we Keep in Our Homes that should be avoided if we have Kids or Pets

They may look pretty, but plants are deceptively dangerous if you have children or pets running around the house. Popular varieties like daffodil, iris, lily-of-the-valley, ivy, and even mistletoe are poisonous when consumed, according to the National Capital Poison Center. They contain toxins or dangerous chemicals to protect themselves from insects, animals—and yes, humans. So play it safe and keep 'em out of your home if you've got curious pets or kiddos.
