    It's also a good idea to wash anything before you wear it, especially clothing that directly touches the skin. Not sure if that would have helped with the flip flops, but a lot of time there are residual chemicals from manufacture or storage (bug sprays) that can cause irritations.

    How many has Firestone killed right here in the US?
    What about Ford and the exploding Pinto?
    Chevrolet and the gas tank outside the frame rail?
    Americans can kill Americans just as efficiently as a foreign country and have.

    When it comes to chemicals and products like rubber, latex, etc
    Some folks are going to react, some aren't.

    Fortunately I've never developed an intolerance to epoxies. I'm careful.
    Some people cant get anywhere near them.
