What is it? 
Diethylenetriame is a yellow liquid, soluble in water and hydrocarbons and is used in industry. Diethylenetriamine (DETA) is commonly used in the manufacture of paper wet-strength resins, corrosion inhibitors, fuel additives, epoxy curing agents, fabric softeners and asphalt additives among other applications. 

How do I avoid it? You should avoid any contact with this substance. Avoidance requires reading labels, package inserts, Material Safety Data Sheets, and, on occasion, direct communication with the manufacturer.
