If possible, include a link to the MSDS (materials safety data sheet) information that is usually available on the internet, and easily located by an internet search. If dangerous chemicals, such as strong acids or alkalis, are involved, you must include a clear statement that the cleanser should be regarded as potentially dangerous, and also add that sensible safety precautions are necessary (e.g. goggles and gloves). Note in your post any health risks of the product or procedure, such as: known carcinogens, toxicity or other high risk chemicals or by-products, flammability, etc. Be particularly careful about recommending any cleaning agent or method to other users.
