Or maybe its because its harmful, even in limited exposure. Quotes like the above and help to the effect of "it don't smell TOO bad" worry me. Call the 800 number and order the MSDS sheet. Thats the material safety data sheet. The supplier is supposed to offer it (do you CLC?) but you can always get it from the manufacture. The second step to take is to understand the MSDS. Get a good book, then get another one. Its your health and your family's health. Don't get safety advice from some forum on the internet It amazes me that folks wouldn't think of not wearing a life vest, no matter the conditions, but be so cavalier with known carcinogens and sensitizers. -Bill
