Ailine security- a strange question

Jump to last reply

An aerosol of expanding foam discharged over my suede shoes in my daughter's rucksack.
I can remove most of it (by use of knife, pumice stone and nail varnish remover) but I will never get rid of it all especially around the stitching.
It occurs to me that the presence of the residue COULD cause a problem in security when flying. Whilst I am only giving what I think are the bare bones of this problem I would like not to be arrested , prosecuted and put on a no-fly list.
I am undecided whether to take my shoes and rucksack to the airport soon (i.e. on a day when I am passing and not flying) and ask the man on the bulky items scanner if he can put them through so that can find out whether they set off alarms.
Considered views anyone?
