We covered that to a great extent. This is how dangerous those chemicals are.



On the serious note, do you have any actual scientific studies that you base your statements off of? If so, please link them. I would be interested in reading them.

That is, as long as you take proper precautions regarding the leeched toxins.
Noooooo, dont do it! we've already covered what will happen when the stick and the spray bar are boiled in the same pot!
