Brain damage from solvent (insect killer)?

@jakeg, It’s a good thing that you found the source of the odour, a partially opened bottle of insect killer. I hope that you sealed it and put it outdoors right away. If you are concerned about potential health effects of this exposure, I recommend that you talk to your doctor.

Have you told your parents about the insecticide? How well ventilated is the basement?

The basement is pretty closed off but should i be worried? The whole basement didn't smell of the odour i only smelt it when i got really close to the closet and plus the majority of the time i spent in the basement i had a dehumidifier running since it gets pretty humid down there when it gets warm out so that might have helped to clean the air. Is it possible that i could have got brain damage from this?
