I have been told by two different 'art car' people that it is the adhesive
of choice - and one does cars with kids. I always try to read the labels
carefully. If I use it in my room - it is without kids for 24 hours or more
- over the weekend.
What a frightening experience for you with the oven cleaner... my
sensitivity is Wizard Air fresheners - can't be in the room without
headaches and nausea - and whatever is in carpet glue.
Still trying to have rubber cement outlawed in my school - we have several
primary folks that go to town doing photo albums at the end of the year.
