With Pesach cleaning in high gear and after several incidents last year, Hatzolah is reminding parents the dangers of the powerful St. Moritz chemical spray.
The chemical, which appears to be just another cleaning agent available in groceries, was removed from at least two Lakewood groceries last year after children suffered serious – and possibly permanent – injures to their face.
Parents of one child last year requested the graphic picture of their burned child be made public to serve as a reminder to parents to use extreme caution with the chemical.
Even a slight amount of the chemical coming in contact with skin or eyes, can cause irreversible damage.
Alternative – and less-lethal – chemicals are available. TLS.
Why is this product even on the market, surely there is something else that is just as good and safe.
Yes – this product is v/ dangerous. Its also THE best cleaning agent on the market. Store it w/ ur paint thinner, lighter fluid, gas tank etc. RG III. DB IV
#1 you are right, anyone who uses anything more abrasive than windex for pesach cleaning is a chasid shotah
Thank you! I never knew!
I myself have taken in children to the hospital after either touching or tasting a drop of this stuff. It’s incredible how it progresses into something lethal. When we picked up the child in Flatbush it didn’t look so bad. We went to Staten Island and by the time we got there his breathing was going down hill. Don’t buy it! Tell others! It’s Pikuach Nefesh to the highest degree!
Why would I expose not only me but my family to this cleaner, I remember my Mother using vinegar and water to clean, it’s safe and it cleans really well.
I recently saw this on a low shelf in a local lakewood store, I was shocked! It is a dangerous poison! Keep away from kids! Shouldn’t be allowed into our stores at all!
[email protected], it was pesachdik I assume?
Maybe someone should contact the hashgacha company to inform them of the dangers involved in using and inhaling this product.
vinegar and windex are great, I use both but for your oven you need something stronger if you don’t have self clearn. I am not endorsing it and don’t use it myself but milder cleaners are not for certain jobs.
Vinegar is CHUMETZ! windex is not pogem chumetz that can’t be removed
