I was just spraying some canned Aircraft Stripper for a few seconds. I gust of wind must have come by and I got a mist of it on my tongue. I washed my mouth out with a hose.

Should I be worried about this small amount? If it was any other shop chemical, I would laugh it off, but see'ing what this stuff does to paint, it's making me nervous.

I'm no doctor, but washing out immediately with copious amounts of water should be enough. I would do a simple test by licking a small painted object and see if the paint bubbles off. Just kidding, hope your fine.

Good thinking on the hose, that probably did the trick and washed away any amount that would have been harmful. That's about all you really could do, just the longer you kept rinsing out the better.

You could call the poison control center just in case. Otherwise just keep aware of any symptoms or problems, and you might want to keep the container handy to take with you to the doctor/ER if anything does happen.

I'm OK, thanks guys. The warning label freaked me out plus the thought of my stomach/lungs stripping like paint!

WEAR YOUR MASK!

Oops, typo.

I'm still alive. I think I successfully neutralized & flushed all the toxins out of my body with copious amounts of alcohol.

That always works... Just be careful of copious amounts of alcohol combined with aircraft remover off-gasses, if you happen to be a smoker. :D
