No, not my mother, she smelled fine, rest her soul. Mother's mag and aluminum polish. I polished up an old set of Nuovo Tipo hubs yesterday getting them ready to lace to some new rims and find the smell of Mother's gets stuck in my nose, I can still smell it this morning, and that can't be good. I figure it must be ammonia based. I notice no warnings on the tin saying the stuff is harmful but still, it's a bit disconcerting. I like the stuff, it seems to work very well, being a soft paste I suspect it has more volatiles suspended in it than Simichrome or Flitz. Does this bother anybody else?
