You have to be over 18 to use chain lube in the UK?
I though we lived in the nanny state.

It's just a 'catch all' statement for all aerosols in order to avoid being accused of selling items that could be used for substance abuse
There isn't a law AFAIK (although there's a 16 limit on spray paints)

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Okay I get it now. Only people under 18 in the UK sniff aerosols.

Correct, the same as alcohol  :002:

Besides Aldi is a German company so it may be just their EU wide policy
