It's called Simple Green because it's made from Oil of Wintergreen.

I know with tire additives the subject always seems to result in a "safety" discussion. From what I've seen Simple Green is a relatively harmless product. The MSDS for it pretty much says it is a minor eye irritant.

That is true, then you are doomed! I gotta think RC is a near illegal activity in California with all the "harzardous" chemicals involved.

Everything is illegal "in the state of california". When they state, I think they mean state-of-mind...
