Does anyone know what chemical they are using for disinsection? Spoke with a crop duster and recommends we wash clothes separately from family.

For what it's worth ... I've seen the PAX carriers spray (the same chemicals?) in the cabin at top of decent.

Just to be safe I would always use the walk-around oxygen bottle when spraying. I would then write up a maintenance entry saying the bottle had been used.

YIKES!
