Is this sand non-toxic?

Asked by: Anonymous
Most anything is toxic should you ingest or be exposed to it in large enough quantities. While the sand MSDS may show toxicity, it is important to know the amount you must inhale for it to be significant at all. The larger the particles the better, that way you won't inhale smaller particles into your lungs. The most dangerous particles that are commonly out there for us to breathe are those kicked up from the road by cars and float along to be breathed by us as well as those from the combustion of the cars fuel. So, take it all into account and this sand should be fine. Just don't eat too much rocks; meaning big sand.

Quikrete 50 lb. Play Sand

Is this play sand silica free? It doesn't say so in the specifications, so I'm assuming it is not. But I wanted to confirm. Do you sell silica free sand?
Asked by: Anonymous
No this sand is not silica free. Silica(silicon dioxide) is what sand is. I wouldn't worry about silica exposure though. Most of the earth's crust is composed of silica, and also most of the upper mantle. Also glass and quartz. If you want silica free sand, maybe go for calcium carbonate, Sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) or salt/ sugar. (Well maybe not salt/sugar) It won't be sand, but it will not contain anything but small impurities and the substance. Also, don't stick your face into silica dust, and silica gel is not toxic, it just adsorbs water (water sticks).

Customer Reviews

50 lb. Play Sand is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 149.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Potential buyers beware I bought this sand as a decorative addition to my beach theme patio. I placed the sand in a large container with seashells and fake palm tree. I noticed while pouring sand out of the bag my ankles were itching with bites. I knew it couldn't have been mosiqutos all at once and knew it had to be sand fleas. And it was. Somehow they got in my home, probably on me. The next day I trashed all the sand(which happened to be on sale for $2.50) and have been battling to get rid of them!! This is terrible, especially since I got the play sand thinking it would be safe for the kids to play in. I don't know if every bag is treated equally but beware of sand fleas!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of Rocks Did not notice any rocks in the first ten bags added to my son's sandbox. Bought ten more bags the next day. On the third bag, noticed many large rocks. Dug through the sand added the day before and noticed many small rocks. Returned the unopened 7 bags and part of the bag that had been added. Eventually got more bags and spent 3 hours sifting out the rocks using a sieve. Pictures are worth a thousand words. The last picture is of all the rocks removed and put on a hand towel. Sand was washed off these in the sifter over our lawn. The sand itself is nice and looks and behaves like beach sand when slightly damp.

I was new to the sand requirements for a sandbox and which brand had better quality sand. If youre like me and never thought about cancer causing agents in your sand then welcome to the club. Although some reviews claim this product has the cancer causing agents I still proceeded with purchase (seriously, what doesn't cause cancer) apparently the dust and inhalation of is what can cause it so I sprinkle a little water on top and let them play. Very soft and so far (weeks after purchase and many, many play dates with it) we have not found any foreign objects or rocks, just soft sand. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wouldn't consider going elsewhere! Very simply, I'm a pre-school teacher. There are six pre-K classes on our campus. Some of them are special ed. We teachers rotate the responsibility of picking up more sand for our (2) sand tables. When it's my turn to pick up two bags, I order and pay online. Boom! I'm done. A wonderful sales associate transports the bags to my ride, and I can get this back to school on my lunch break. This Wilshire Home Depot is that close to my school. Sand and water play are essential elements of our Creative Curriculum. Thank you, Home Depot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dry and dusty It's sand and supposed to be dry but it just doesn't feel good when you touch it. It leaves your hands feeling chalky and dry and you just want to go put lotion on. My friend has a sandbox and her sand seems soft and smooth and not at all gritty. The sand isn't smooth either. There's bits of tiny rocks in it. Wish we had gone with another brand.

I bought this from you all and it is dark sand and has little rocks in it. I couldn;t mix it with my daughter sand box because I dont want her playing in rocks . so the 4 bags that I bought are useless to me.
