Ready for battle... with my flat... ⚠️⚠️isothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone and benzisothiazolinone⚠️⚠️ Do these word mean anything to you? Me neither, till I painted my flat with a paint (no, it was not the cheapest) that had one of these as a preservative. I immediately got a rash on my face and after three weeks of confusion, respiratory problems and finally SWOLLEN LIPS, I went to the doctor and we got to the bottom of it.
This was in November. It’s been 2 months already. This chemical can take up to 190 days to completely release from the paint. Today I am washing the walls with a Na2S2O3 and water mixture, hoping that it helps alleviate the situation. But depending on my sensitivity, I could still have issues. Won’t know until I spend the night!
ADULTING LESSON: simply going to the hardware store and buying not the cheapest paint does not leave you safe and in the clear. I’ve NEVER had issues with paint/allergies before. Doesn’t matter. Do a little research, if there is ANY sort of allergic warning, my advice now is don’t risk it. Had I looked this paint up online before, I would have know this. It was SUPER clear on the website, but not at all in the store on the shelf. 👎However, since it doesn’t cause a reaction in everyone, they still can sell it, and I probably would have still bought it cause hell im not made of money here I just wanted white walls dammit.
@hellweg.profi.baumaerkte warum verkauft ihr sowas überhaupt???? Es hat mich super krank gemacht, mein Leben total zerstört, und ich muss seit 2 Monaten schon aus dem Koffer leben.
