Air contains chemicals, as does water A "chemical" by itself is not necessarily harmful, but can be in large amounts.

Check out oxalic acid on Wikipedia. It occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables; you would have to eat pounds of it for it to be harmful.

I've had pretty good luck rubbing in a small amount of Dawn type (grease buster) dish detergent on stains.

I agree with GG. Oxalic acid is in lots of "natural" stuff.

As far as laundry stains, Oxyclean and Dawn are my go-tos. The Queen of Clean also recs shampoo.

Kinda depends on the type of stain, what will work.

I always buy BKF when I'm down in the States--haven't seen it here. I love it for cleaning stainless steel.

Egg shells consist entirely of calcium carbonate, not silica. I don't know which, if either, is in Bon Ami.

Welcome to DC dennis! I just so happen to have a canister of Bon Ami near the computer, so I can list the ingredients. In fact, I'll post the list!

I'm careful PF. I make sure I rinse it off my hands thoroughly before I suck my thumb.
