2 year old 5 year old and 40 % deet opinions quick please !

ok so my 5 year old found an almost empty can of insect reppellant w/ 40 % deet in it while at my aunts house and sprayed herself and then her 2 year old sister I called poison control and they freaked out at first saying that 40 % was too much then changed her mind and said just give her something to drink and she would be fine I don't know how much got in her mouth but her breath smells like bug spray along with myself it was all over both of them should I go w/ what poison control said or what I don't know !!! I'm freaking out my aunt was only watching them for 5 min.s this is never happening again I can't believe it I'm giving them baths and water to drink but IDK
