    today while spraying, i was having trouble with nozzle, not spraying properly. so i proceed to mess with it, the nozzle comes flying off from the pressure. i get shot on the forhead, cheek, and ear. not a drop in my mouth or eyes. got lucky. so what would round up do if u got it in your eyes and mouth?

    If you would have followed the label, you would have had your protective eyewear on. The PPE requirements on Honcho Plus (Monsanto's generic label glyphosate) include wearing eye protection. So, to answer your question, Roundup in my eye's would have been a non-issue. As for in the mouth, I always carry 5 gallons of fresh water, and would be able to rinse my mouth.

    This may be overkill but these products do exist, just in case.

    I'd sleep well knowing that no weed or grass seeds that blew into my eyes don't have a chance of germinating.

    As in most chemical exposures, the solution is dilution. Flush and then flush, when done flush some more.
