Me too. I've always wondered. Not to sound like a weirdo hippy
type, but in recent years I've become very mindful of the chemicals
I'm exposed to and use. Mostly because industry perpetually
demonstrates an inability to put public good ahead of profits.
I love the way Zaino looks/works, but the fact that Zaino refuses to
make MSDS sheets available (and can legally do so since they
supposedly don't sell it to "commercial" customers like professional
detailers and such) really bugs me. When reading up on Zaino, I came
across a lot of detailers who said they've stopped using ANY product
for which they can't get an MSDS on, or one they do get and find it's
Quickly looking at the MSDS for Simple Green, if I read it correctly,
they disclose the main ingredient (Butyl Cellosolve) which seems
pretty harmless; I've read MSDS sheets for far scarier stuff. They
cover how it is broken down by naturally occuring bacteria in soil;
seems it's safe for septic treatment critters as well.
People hazards seem very low; no long term exposure hazards, just
skin irritation. No dangers if it comes into contact with mucous
membranes (inhale mist/vapor for example); just says "causes
irritation".) Also: " None of the ingredients in Simple Green® are
regulated or listed as cancer agents by Federal OSHA, NTP, or
IARC."...and..."Based upon chemical analysis, Simple Green® contains
no known EPA priority pollutants, heavy metals, or chemicals listed
under RCRA, CERCLA, or CWA. Analysis by TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic
Leaching Procedure) according to RCRA revealed no toxic organic or
Tthere are almost a dozen chemical components which are listed but
not identified- at least not to you and I, because they're obscured
by "trade secret" registration numbers and such. Long ago companies
realized that MSDS sheets were the key to competitors copying their
chemical products, so they've successfully lobbied for barriers to
disclosing actual ingredients.
I'd guess that unless you're an ER doc who has an actual patient and
you fax some EPA Stiff a letter on form AB-8/C in triplicate, you're
not finding out squat.
