...Just Ordinary chemicals like in Household Cleaning Stuff, eh?
After all the comments folks have given
that say the ingredients of Inipol EAP 22 were no more hazardous
than ordinary household products...
and then they won't give the ingredients!
Maybe some laws need to be changed here? *
Guess they don't want to admit to putting something classified as a poison
in the cleaning products, maybe.
Is the 10% Surfactant in Spray 'n Wash . . . 2-butoxyethanol?
What's in Lysol Tub 'n Tile?
per MSDS it has a component which is diethylene glycol monobutyl ether *
CAS # 112-34-5
Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether is not the same, but a related compound to butoxyethanol.
C8H18O3 / CH2(CH2)3OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OH
Of course the concern of adverse health effects should be similar...WORSE?!

Lysol Tub 'n Tile is one of the products an industrious housewife uses on a regular basis... She cleans her house and usually someone else's too over these past 40 years. She's now in her 60's and finds she has a serious red blood cell anemia to go along with nephritis (kidney disease). Has she been exposed often enough ... small amounts of exposure to chemicals ... that she is at risk for the same kind of health damage workers were... in their short 1 month of continuous exposure?

What kind of kidney damage does 2-butoxyethanol cause, anyway?
Something must be pretty bad in that? Yep!
TO ETHYLENE GLYCOL MONOBUTYL ETHER
WILL CAUSE BLOOD & BONE MARROW DAMAGE
Does anyone know what's in Dawn?
They're not saying *
... more than just a proprietary reason, most likely
It is relevant... because workers spent a lot of time washing the birds and sea otters and seals with Dawn...
& if we can learn something about that, too
... may help us learn something for 'next time' around.
Maybe the ethanol used here C2H6O is not as bad as some chemical compounds...
but housewives should still use gloves when washing dishes...
Has up to 10% 2-butoxyethanol... similar to Inipol EAP 22 MSDS pdf format
Special Hazard Precautions: Chronic: NIOSH studies indicate 2-butoxyethanol has caused reproductive disorders in laboratory animals (rats or mice) and may have the potential for causing similar disorders in humans (FP N).
Protect Eye: Yes
At a minimum - Use Goggles and Gloves when cleaning!
