Ban formaldehyde in motorhome/caravan toilet fluid products

Petition Details

Some blue toilet chemicals contain formaldehyde, a known human carcinogen. The government should ban the use of formaldehyde in motorhome/caravan toilet fluids because safer alternatives (including 100% natural products) are now commercially available.

Additional Information

Formaldehyde is a highly toxic systemic poison that is absorbed well by inhalation. The vapour is a severe respiratory tract and skin irritant and may cause dizziness or suffocation. Contact with formaldehyde solution may cause severe burns to the eyes and skin.

Fomaldehyde-based toilet fluids are unsuitable for all campsites with septic tanks and can seriously damage the natural environment if spilled.

We should not be allowing the use of such a dangerous ingredient in blue toilet fluids.
