Mace Pepper sprays are available in a variety of forms, including many that are small enough to fit inside a handbag or pocket. Whether you choose a large spray canister or a lipstick-sized spray that fits on a key ring, it’s important that you use pepper spray responsibly and follow some basic guidelines:
Keep your mace pepper spray in the same place at all times. You should be able to access your pepper spray as soon as you need it – in a dangerous situation, you don’t have time to dig through your purse to find it.
Keep mace pepper spray out of the reach of children. Although it’s not lethal, pepper spray can be painful. Don’t leave it where your kids can play with it. Check with your state laws regarding pepper spray. Some states only allow certain sizes and concentrations, and some states prohibit Internet sales of pepper spray – know the rules before you make a purchase.
