Well you want the acetone to evaporate (the stuff to dry) before you let her mouth near it, of course. LOL It evaporates completely, and does not remain on the skin, in case you skipped chemistry in school.



To each their own, I guess. Your kid will eat worse as she gets older.

Try a product called Thum. You can get it at Walgreens and it's designed to break children of the habit of sucking their thumbs. It's a harmless substance that tastes terrible.
