Doctor C please....
My 0ne year old has two new chairs in his playroom and the have teflon scotch guard type coating on fabric. Would this be toxic for my child?
Hello & welcome to Just Answer! If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
From the current scientific evidence available,
Teflon like products may be potentially harmful only when heated above a certain temperature (like in a pan),
Hence the chairs are NOT likely to be toxic to your child aged 1 year.
