http://medheadlines.com/2009/01/06/third-hand-smoke-becomes-latest-cigarette-scare/I've heard of second hand smoke, but what is third hand smoke? Please enlighten me.
Its hard to go to work and talk to people (as a sales person) and smell as if you just had a pack of cigs with your coffee... ....
I hate strong perfumes, aftershaves and that gosh awful potpourri that people put in little bowls in their houses to cover up bad smells. :hand:I find secondhand beans, chilli and beer far more offensive :bash:
as well as women who bathe in some gosh awful perfume (which BTW also releases toxins )
I'm surprised an employer wouldn't say something, especially if customers mentioned it.
A friend in MI just got let go from their job for smelling strongly of smoke after 3 warnings-she worked in a hospital. The employer said the smell was overpowering & offensive to the patients and their families. The firing was considered justified by the Labor board because it came under the same rules as personal hygiene.
Thanks for the education, BamaNama. In our house, and probably many homesteaders houses too, second-hand and third hand woodsmoke is quite common. Many of the same toxins found in cigarette smoke are also contained in woodsmoke.
