|The remover is safe to use in the small 4 ounce quantity as supplied, but there are three hazards you must be aware of and guard against.
The remover is extremely flammable. Liquid vapors may ignite so do not use when smoking or near a fire, flame or heat. It's OK if there is a small spill when a heat source is not close by - just wipe up the spill, saturate the wiper with water and dispose. Never allow children to use the remover without your close supervision.
The remover is a very good solvent and so will dissolve and remove the natural oils from your skin. It follows that repeated contact may make your skin dry and may cause irritation. It's OK if the remover contacts your skin or cuticles; just do what you can to minimize these occurences and perhaps replenish the oils with a good hand lotion. Once again, do not allow children to use the remover without your close supervision.
The remover is extremely soluble in water. This means that it will very aggressively remove water from the mucous membranes of eyes, nose and mouth to cause sensational burning and irritation in those areas. So, if these body parts are accidentally splashed with remover, flush with copious amounts of water, give fluids and call a physician. We have added Bitrex to this remover to make it extremely bitter so no child would ever voluntarily taste or drink it. To repeat, never allow children to use this remover by themselves!|
