Chemicals may be harmful if misused. They should only be used under adult supervision. You are responsible for the safety of yourself and your children when using chemicals! Always read the entire label before using a chemical. Keep chemicals tightly closed and out of reach of children. Avoid chemical contact with eyes, nose, mouth and skin. Always follow the lab or experimental procedure carefully. Never mix chemicals of your own choosing unless you fully understand the chemical and reactive properties of each. Treat every chemical with respect – wear splash goggles, safety gloves and a lab apron!

You need to be 21 years of age or older to purchase chemicals from Home Science Tools. When you order chemicals from us, you are verifying that you understand the associated hazards and that you are assuming all responsibility for the storage, use and disposal of these items.
