Abstract The paper gives results of tests in a controlled environment test room to measure concentrtons of 2-butoxyethanol and particles during application of a cleaner to realistic surfaces (counter tops, glass, walls). 2-Butoxyethanol was collected on Tenax and analyzed by gas chromatography. Concentrations of droplets were measued continuously with an aerodynamic particle sizer. During two sets with the cleaner diluted 1 part with 9 parts water, the average concentrations of 2-butoxy-ethanol during the 20-minute cleaning period were 13.5 and 10.3 mg/cu m, about half the NIOSH recommended exposure limit of 24 mg/cu m. After 2 hours, the concentrations dropped below 4 mg/cu m in the room exhausted at a rate of 1 air change per hour.
