Dust Off (the spray that cleans dust out of your computer) is being used mostly by kids ages 9-15. They often have a name for it. It’s called dusting. It gives them a slight high for about 10 seconds. It makes them dizzy. It’s not just compressed air. It also contains a propellant called R2. It’s a refrigerant like what is used in your refrigerator. It is a heavy gas and heavier than air. When inhaled, the heavier gas fills your lungs and suffocates you. Please be aware of Dusting and help get the word out. If you notice that some retailers do not keep this product under lock and key, it would be a good idea to make a suggestion to do so.
