I just read this about CLR cleaner:
"I just wanted to comment on the use of CLR in your home. DO NOT DO IT! My brother (who was 23 at the time) moved a piece of equipment that had been cleaned with CLR and unknowingly got a tiny bit of CLR on a cut on his finger. Within a few hours, he had bizarre symptoms which persisted through the evening. My parents took him to the ER and at first they thought he might have meningitis and quarantined him. Ultimately, he ended up in Intensive Care for one week, he went from a very muscular 155 pound man to a skeletal 110. He actually died twice, but they were able to revive him. The reports came back pointing to CLR, he had gone into toxic shock from it. DO NOT USE THIS STUFF IN YOUR HOME WITH ANYTHING THAT WILL COME IN CONTACT WITH ANYONE! My brother is very lucky to be alive. The doctors told him that he will have heart issues later in life due to the stress that he endured with his heart rate being elevated for so long (he had a 180+ heart rate for 4 days straight).
