    Workshop warning

    Does the brake cleaner need to contain Cholorinated Stuff, most of the cans on my self have only the good old petrolum distillates listed, but not sure if that is the bad stuff mentioned (cholorinated or not). Also I think the wikipedia has more information on mustard gas as well as phosgene...
