Goggles should be worn at all times when making and working with the putties.
If any chemical in this activity should contact the eye, rinse the affected area with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.
There is usually no danger in handling the glue putties but participants should wash their hands after use. Borax may cause allergic reactions in some people. Participants can determine their sensitivity to the putty by touching a small amount. If redness or itching occurs, wash the affected area with mild soap solution and avoid further contact.
"Used" putties can be placed in the trash. All testing equipment can be returned for re-use.
