Hi, I wonder if someone knows how to get triethylamine fumes out of items that are not washable, like furniture. In my lab, we work with amines and usually do not use the fume hood when we weigh them out. I noticed that some fumes ended up on my jeans and then got transferred to some lab chairs. They have oxidized and have a salty taste. When I touch the contaminated chair, I can for some reason taste a salty taste on my tongue.
And is there a way to make those fumes/residues non toxic?
