Question from Lanny
I am desperately searching for a bed tray to use for my laptop. I need it for those days when I am in bed from MCS & Fibro. I have found three options and would like your opinion on the least toxic. (I realize unfinished wood would be ideal but there is no such thing, plus I do have problems with pine.)
Unfortunately, there is not a clear answer based on the information provided. All three will have chemical emissions. The acrylic is made from petrochemicals. The wood veneer will have adhesives and probably a lacquer finish. The wood/wood composite will also have adhesives, stain and possibly a lacquer finish. You would need to understand the content of the adhesive, stains and lacquers to know how toxic they are.
I would not recommend any of these, particularly for use in your bedroom.
