Ethylene Glycol And Your Antifreeze
In colder parts of the country, the fluid in your car's radiator is called antifreeze. In warm states like Arizona, we refer to it as coolant. Coolant, or antifreeze, does a great job of protecting your car's engine from freezing up in the winter or over heating in the summer.
Did you know the coolant in your car can be hazardous to your health? As well as your pet? Many animals and young children die or are made seriously ill when exposed to coolants. They have a sweet taste that pets and little ones find hard to resist.
Newer technology has led us to low-toxicity coolant. Now with propylene glycol, coolant is still considered toxic, but much, much less so. Makers must still refer to it as "low-toxicity".
Beware of fluid spots in your driveway or garage, and keep extra coolant up high in a safe place. Never store coolant in a different container, such as a soda bottle. This is a big temptation for little children who don't know what they're drinking until it's too late.
