The ingredients in Wisk

  • Cleaning agents (anionic and nonionic surfactants, enzymes)
  • Water softener (sodium citrate)
  • Stabilizer.
  • Buffering agent.
  • Perfume.
  • Polymer.
  • Brightening agent.
  • Colorant.

are considered to be of very low toxicity. There's no specific antidote for these ingredients and so we attempt to dilute however much was ingested by overfeeding and encouraging tasty fluid intake in the form of mild, cream, broths, or bouillons. Any adverse effects are expected to be limited to the gastrointestinal tract - transient inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
