Silicone smell...

Have you ever taken a BIG whiff of silicone right out of the bottle? DON'T. I swear I burnt my nose for life. It was almost as bad as when I smelled pure photograph developer.

Yes it smells awful! I had a tube leak in the bottom of my tool box and when I discovered it the smell made me gag.

It's just acetic acid vapors, the container even states to apply the sealant in a well ventilated area.

Smell it all the time at work, I guess I'm used to it now.

A few days ago I asked my gf if she could smell any PVC cement smell in a Rex react I built. She asked "what does it smell like?". I grabbed the cement and said "smell front a distance, but like this". Inthe middle of saying that she leaned in a took a big wiff haha. I wish you all could have seen the look on her face.

I think they use vinegar or something as the solvent... Or at least it smells like vinegar to me.
