(5 3/8 x 8 3/8 In) This is an original vintage National Safety Council booklet, reprinted from Family Safety Magazine in 1962. STRANGE KILLER (Carbon Tetrachloride Dry Cleaning Fluid) is 8-pages long and informs of the deadliness of the chemical in household use.
"A mother in New York City recently used half a cup of carbon tetrachloride to clean the upholstery of two chairs. That afternoon her 7-year-old daughter came home from school with a slight cold and sat on one of the chairs to watch television. Later the child became so violently ill that she was taken to a hospital where doctors found that her kidneys had stopped functioning and she was near death. The cause was inhaling poisonous vapor of carbon tet. It took the efforts of a 10-man medical team and an artificial kidney to keep the child alive. She remained in the hospital six weeks until her kidneys healed.", reads the first paragraph.
