Acetone is a carcinogen. Very bad to let it contact skin in any way, as your body will soak it up. Breathing it is a very fast way to get it into your blood stream also. Nasty stuff, which is why it works so well. Just make sure to use proper protection as short term you may not notice health issues, but over time all the chemicals we work with can cause major health issues.
