Just because a company is says a product is 'safe' or non toxic .... does not mean that is the case.
Simple Green is 6% 2-butoxyethanol
2-butoxyethanol and Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether are nothing to play around with.
*From WHO (via Toxins Awareness Group): paint solvents are carcinogenic, painters having a 40% higher chance of lung cancer and 20% higher of stomach, bladder, larynx, etc cancers, while their children are at increased risk of leukaemia and brain tumours . Source
The chemical that is commonly used in cleaning products for decades,
is the same chemical that should be suspect

How does a body 'complain' about too much of some kind of chemical exposure? *
For 2-butoxyethanol: Cough, headache, loosening of the sinuses (runny nose), diarrhea, flu-like symptoms
I'm not familiar with the chemicals mentioned in odoBan
But when an EPA registration number is needed, it is usually a clue that there is something more harmful than the MSDS would share
I'm looking into IMUS cleaners, but still wonder about the solvent in it Imus' cleaners
Glass Cleaner msds ;
well there's your answer the ingredients are listed with the New Jersey Secret Registry.
So then, they do NOT disclose all ingredients as they advertise
Would be best not to spray any cleaning products around children & vapors in eyes can be a serious exposure to the harmful components ... and air out the rooms after cleaning ... so residue is gone when children arrive the next day
Workers who clean should use air-tight goggles & chemically resistant gloves
Thank you for your interest in our children's health

PS many who worked on the Exxon Valdez oil spill were over exposed to this chemical
If we knew what happened to them, they would look like the 'gulf war syndrome vets'
I also believe there is a strong second hand solvent exposure to 2-butoxyethanol
and that many in our town would be alive & living in health today, had it not been for coming into contact with others who were strongly exposed in 1989. Possibly even Lee Olkjer, Helen Wade, Bob Keller ... many, many people
What should the military list of disability approval be? ... PRESUMPTIVE
Everything that is on the 'list' for the Vietnam vets ... & more approvals for them, too. It was 'the other chemical in the mix that caused most of their health issues
For Audrey's husband's bouts of paralysis ... For the muscle weakness others often share on ... Could it be CIDP? In the advance or acute stage it is what Pres FDR had (goes by another name). He didn't have polio, but the acute (instead of chronic) version of CIDP
Why I think Pres FDR was exposed to bomb fumes of WWI when he was Assist Sect of the Navy & got as close to the front lines as they would let him. About that time the male tanks were brought into the war ... then in 1918 the 'Spanish flu" that killed millions. General Dynamics wants to test these old things in a new package & shoot them off beyond our town in Jan/Feb of 07. Scares me a lot
Thankfully RCAC has taken a position against using this kind of chemical for dispersants in Prince William Sound. Hopefully the US Coast Guard, our regulating authority will take note.
