For the white board in our office, we have the standard dry-erase markers. About 10 seconds after taking the cap off, the fumes start to get to me, and if I don’t stop using it, I will get a headache that just won’t quit.
The label says “non-toxic”, but doesn’t that reaction seem pretty damn nasty?
Non-toxic doesn’t necessarily mean that the materials used aren’t toxic. Keep in mind this is an industry definition (probably ASTM 4236,) not a literal one. If you eat the marker, you might get sick, but you probably won’t die.
