      My grandfather had Alzheimer's -- it's not a nice thing. My prayers go out to anyone who is dealing with this condition. Anyway, Mom started using copper bottom cooking utensils. Later, I read that aluminum may not be that big of a factor. Cynthia

      Aluminum in any form is a suspected cause of dementia/Alzheimers. This hasn't yet been proven, but it's something to think about when handling alum.

      -Thanks for all the replies re chemical hazards of handling paints,

      alum, solvents etc. I take the utmost care, always rub lanolin or

      barrier cream into my hands, wear dispoable latex gloves, take care

      not to inhale any powdered paints or alum etc. so will have to do

      some sleuth work to find out just what is causing the sneezing when I

      start working with the paints, opening jars and so on. Perhaps

      supermarket disposable gloves are not resistant to

      chemicals . . . . .

      I think that newcomers to marbling should be made aware of the

      potentially dangerous chemicals they will be using, and trained in

      the routine use of safety measures. Many of us have come to marbling

      with no previous training in such things, and only a hazy

      recollection of chemistry lessons at school. After a couple of years

      of marbling it finally dawned on me that I should take safety

      precautions seriously!-- Joan Ajala
