Hi, I just got my DE and the duster and will be sharing extensively with my mom and aunt and was wondering if anyone wears a dust mask when dusting? From the description, I would think that it would be an asbestos type of irritant if inhaled? And, then it makes me worry about my chicken babies and dogs... Any input? How do you guys apply it? Or can someone direct me to a thread that could answer my question? Thanks!!!!!
