    don't touch outlet or light switch if your hands soaked. House go boom.

    the main things to watch for are
    1) never use next an open flame
    2) wear protective glasses so as not to get anyof it in your eyes(i've been to the emergency room twice for chemeical burn to my eyes dont take safety for granted it happens to the best of us.)
    3)dont ingest it(swallow)
    it would be a good idea to wear some latex gloves if you want to be extra carefull. alcohal and reducers can be absorbed through the skin and over a long period of time(we are talking years) as well as constant exposure you can get nerve and liver damage as well as a bad memory.
    i doubt greatly that cleaning a bearing from a yoyo would do any harm to you but i dont know just how stupid the kids are that read this board and i wouldnt feel right not listing some warnings for those lacking in the common sense dept.
    just coz im not listed as a mod, don't think i can't bust your a-shizzle... T 1313

    ya, i think i will. i dont want to get any disease when i'm soaking things up real hard you know. i hate it when i splatter the liquidy stuff all over the sheets! i should use that rubber more often...

    oh, and i'm talking about using latex gloves when cleaning a bearing.

    Did someone mention: use in a well ventilated area.

    Keep a window open or something. I'd be just as concerned about breathing it as I would about getting it on your hands. As I recall from neuro, the olfactory system seems to be an express route to the brain for chemicals. Also, keep in mind that the rare/occassional exposure to some of these chemicals isn't very dangerous, but if you play with it daily, you need to worry. Painters use the stuff daily and some probably clean their hands with it, and it takes years for the stuff to adversely effect them.

    im not dead yet!!!

    Ive got paint thinger, mineral spirits, lighter fulid, alcohol, acetone, and w/e else i have ever cleaned bearing with, ALL ON MY HANDS. I'd have to say, the acetone feels a little weird. Nothing to hurt ya though, accept, i wouldnt suggest any flame around it, or getting it in your eye, or drinking the stuff.

    Acetone in eye= OUCH!!!
    Super glue in eye(even though its not good for cleaning bearings) = DOUBLE OUCH!!!

    (i know this from experience, i hope you take my word on it, instead of finding out for yourself hehehe)
