A bit more serious than a bit of plastic meltdown, Deet also impacts one's liver and immune system.
This is why even during 25 years of living and working in tropical jungles replete with all sorts of biting insects we chose NOT to use any.
Yep! I did get malaria 2 x, but cured quickly as opposed to life-long issues that may have been related to long-term use of the toxins.
At some campgrounds I worried about our Scamp's gel coat from the clouds of Deet and bug spray wafting around in huge clouds that were sprayed by city folks who area apparently scared poopless something might bite them and OH MY I am outside and uncomfortable
Sorry off original Loctite Blue topic.
