I had to check on WD40. It's not clear to me which is better. It does say intentional abuse may be harmful or fatal. If I use it to froth my warm hazelnut milk is that abuse?

      Who knows which one is less harmful - but when one claims to be "non-toxic" on the label and then says don't get it on your skin, don't breath the fumes and whatever you do, don't get it in your eyes - it just shows how misleading product labeling can be.

      I'd keep it out of the martini's too.

        If you look at the two ingredients its not that bad of a product, I think the warnings are just lawyer talk

        01 VEGETABLE OILS MIXTURE 65.0 %
        02 ISOBUTANE 75-28-5 40.0 %

        The percentages are less than, which leaves a 5% overlap for sloppiness - again more lawyer stuff

        This also is the same make-up as Pam cooking spray, which makes it a great SpudGun propellant, just not sure if the veggie oils are eatable.

        I would continue to use it to froth you coffee Ross, just make sure to drink it away from an open flame or sparks.

          I wonder if the production of this product is more sustainable.
          Perhaps non-toxic is a separate idea than sustainable or more sustainably manufactured.
          After all many poisons are natural, though hardly non-toxicemoticon
