Exercise Caution when working with 'Biodegradable' labelled chem

StonexpertMay 15, 2011

Biodegradable DOES NOT mean harmless or safe to use. All this means is that eventually these chemical compounds will break down and will not "destroy" or have an adverse affect on nature. When using Biodegradable chemicals of any kind WEAR gloves and protect your SKIN and EYES and DO NOT BREATHE IN. Organic acids are considered Biodegradable and will still eat through your skin and bodily tissues causing irreparable damage.

The same caution is valid for "NATURAL" and "GREEN." Be aware of what you are dealing with.
