60 F may be too cold and hypothermia could still be a concern for extended washing. However, 100F is just above body temp, it should be pretty good for an eyewash.

I know we& #8217;ve beaten this one to death already but I wasn’t paying attenti on and now I need the collective brain. I found ANSI says that “ ;tepid” is between 60 and 100F. But I seem to recall other advi ce that suggests this is too wide of a range – 60F is uncomfortably c old and 100F is far too hot for an eyewash.
What do you guys think?
