Not many people have heard of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), but it is used for several different applications. It was first discovered in 1866 by a Russian scientist that synthesized it in the lab. The chemical is known to be a liquid because of its very high vaporization temperature and its solidification point is just below room temperature where it can be observed as a solid. One of the unique properties of the solution is the fact that it is absorbed into the skin relatively easily. The taste of the chemical makes its way into the body relatively easily and will provide a very strange oyster like taste in the mouth. A small amount of the chemical will do this and high concentrations could be fatal.

One of the main uses of DMSO today is as paint thinner. Paint thinner compounds like DMSO allow the paint to be broken down and made runnier. If you take the time to look online, you could find several different uses for DMSO and you will be able to learn how to use it as an effective paint stripper. It is commonly used as a paint stripper because it is less toxic than other alternatives. You can be sure to look into the several options available in different concentrations of DMSO. You may be restricted from buying DMSO in hardware stores because it could be used for various illegal uses that could be fatal if you are not careful with it.
