Exposure to high concentrations of tetrasodium EDTA can cause severe eye irritation and lead to vision impairment or blindness in extreme cases. It can also cause severe irritation when it comes in contact with cut or scratched skin. Tetrasodium EDTA can be toxic if ingested, and ingestion can lead to gastrointestinal irritation and burns of the mouth. The amount of tetrasodium EDTA in household cleaners is low and diluted, which would not cause the aforementioned acute effects.

Citric acid is another hazardous ingredient in Jet-Dry, which can cause skin and eye irritation. The ingestion of citric acid can cause abdominal pain and a sore throat. Under normal use conditions, irritation with Jet-Dry can be avoided.
