Mosquito Coil Spray Sprayed Into The Dish Cabinet
I accidentally sprayed mosquito coils into the dish cabinet when I saw a cockroach. My question is, is the plate inside safe for use or not? What should I do? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Mosquito repellent can contain a variety of active ingredients in it, for example DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), pyridine, pyrethrin, carbamate, and organophosphate. Most active ingredients that are often used as a constituent of this mosquito spray can be dangerous and can be eaten directly into the digestive tract, which can trigger digestive disorders (such as nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea), allergies (such as shortness, coughing, wheezing), even disorders nerves (such as numbness, tingling, tremors, impaired balance and coordination, olfactory disorders, taste disorders, and so on).
Reflecting from the information above, if it is true that insect repellent is sprayed into a cupboard containing a plate, then it is much safer if the plates are immediately removed and washed using soap. Do not forget, also clean the cabinet that is in contact with the mosquito spray so that no more dangerous active ingredients are stuck on the surface.
Hope this helps ...
