    I've recently bought the API Master kit, after finding out test strips were ineffective. I've done 1 test already. But soon, I've read the warning labels cautioning many dangers such as poison, irritation, and even genetic defects. I wasn't aware that some of the bottles has gasses in them, according to the flip book instructions. On my first test, a bit of the solution dripped on the table, so I had to clean the area ALOT. I even hold my breath when using the test kits :p

    I'm not sure if the warning labels are just exaggerating, but are there any safety recommendations I need to take? Don't worry, I won't in-hail or drink it.

    Note that I will keep using the test kits, even if it will affect my health :p

    Its fine as long as you don't sniff them excessively, and as long as you don't drink it. If you get some on your hand make sure to wash good, but as long as you don't ingest it there isn't any life threatening conditions. It should be fine as long as you practise proper safety.

    Just don't ingest, directly take a whiff, or leave them on your skin for extended periods of time and you should be fine :)

    Glad to have come across this thread. I had similar concerns and was considering going out to buy gloves to be extra careful!
