Considered Dangerous

June 11, 2013

The United States Postal Service has posted a list of items that they considered dangerous. Fireworks, ammunition and gunpowder, of course, are considered Class 1. What I considered interesting is that I'm often asked if the chemicals that I use are toxic. I usually answer, "No more toxic than the bleach you clean with, or caulk, or hydrogen peroxide. The USPS classifies perfumes as a Class 3 item; pool chemicals, hydrogen peroxide and bleach are a Class 5 item, and pesticides are farther down the line as Class 6.
