You may be exposed to this product by breathing or drinking the substance, or by skin contact.

Ingestion of said product can cause stomach upset and abdominal pain. In severe cases, it may be absorbed into the body causing drowsiness, lack of coordination, fitting, heart problems and coma. Severe lung damage called pneumonitis can occur if liquid white spirit is inhaled directly into the lungs, for example, from inhaling vomit after swallowing white spirit.
Breathing in white spirit vapours may cause irritation of the nose, throat and lungs, shortness of breath, stomach upset, dizziness, headache, lack of coordination and drowsiness. Exposure to very high concentrations via inhalation may cause symptoms similar to those seen following ingestion.
