I have a little rocker for my son outside that I want to move indoors but the pest control guy sprayed Talstar all over it. Is there a safe way to wash it off? Will it hurt my son? Should we re-stain it? Will Talstar end up on my carpet?
Talstar breaks down in about 3-4 weeks when it is exposed to outdoor elements. After 3-4 weeks has passed you can thoroughly scrub the chair with soap and water and rinse with copious amounts of water and bring the chair inside for your son to use. Talstar is a water based product and it will not hurt your carpet. Talstar is even labeled for indoor use but it is restricted to cracks and crevices.
