ER Trip Avoided
Eegads! Dh was working out in the shop last night using brake cleaner and an air hose...at the same time. Sprayed it all right into his eyes, face and nose. He quickly started rinsing his eyes in the shop sink and then blindly fumbled his way back to the house for help. The can of brake cleaner said to rinse for 15 minutes, so we got him into the shower so he could get both eyes rinsed at the same time. I thought for sure I was going to have to take him to the urgent care clinic - or worse - the ER. Fortunately the water rinsing did the trick and saved us a costly visit to a doctor! I reminded him which drawer the safety glasses are in.
