Re: PTFE's, PFOA's, Silicon, and Ceramic Cook/Bakeware

I had no idea they were so sensitive. Irons & light bulbs? I don't know if i'm ready for this. I'll be a nervous wreck 24/7.

Re: PTFE's, PFOA's, Silicon, and Ceramic Cook/Bakeware

Yes I totally get that! It's like bringing a baby home. Have to do a lot of research to prepare. BTW, aerosol sprays are an issue too - you can use them but use them in the bathroom with the door closed. And I'm sure you know perfumes, febreeze, scented candles are a no no. Basically their lungs are just different and way more sensitive than ours. Whenever I bring any new appliance -- heater, air purifier, kitchen appliance -- anything-- into the house, I call the company first. Even some rugs have a non-stick (dupont) coating. And household cleaners are another whole area. I've learned to use vinegar, baking soda, or dish soap for most things. The good news is that once you learn all of this, you will be fine. There is just a learning curve. Just keeping asking questions. Don't worry, most of us did!

Oh and the reason irons and light bulbs can be a problem is they are sometimes non-stick coated.

That's unfortunate, I'm sorry...But really all you should have to tell your wife is that literally any one of those new appliances can and probably will kill your new little baby Caique in a matter of minutes. That should probably do the job...

I'm pretty sure the only job it'll do is end the bird purchase, but we'll see.

Right now all this is work. But once you get your little caique home, it becomes a labor of love. I've had my guy almost 2 years and I think I love him more every day.
