so, today, after grocery shopping, i was sitting at the table eating lunch. i hadn't finished putting things away, and there on the table in front of me was this bottle of dish soap*. what caught my eye were the words "drug facts". wait...drug facts?? on dish soap???
this had my attention. apparently triclosan .10 % is the heavy drug in this particular bottle of dish soap. (ah, triclosan, i think i remember getting high on that in high school.) according to wikipedia, triclosan is a potent wide spectrum antibacterial and antifungal agent. It is a polychloro phenoxy phenol.
polychloro phenoxy phenol? i LOVE that!!! try saying that three times fast.
so, i read more. the warnings reminded the consumer to use for external use only and to get medical help if swallowed...or follow with a dirty dish chaser. hahaha i kill me!
the directions said- "wash hands and rinse." wait wait wait!!!! wash HANDS?? i thought this was dish soap*!! so i turned the bottle around and read "for sparkling dishes!" ok, nothing unusual here. but, no wait, down below all the labeled words, in very small, hard-to-see, white print, it says "hand soap". WTF??!!
now, i knew you could use dish soap as hand soap, but i didn't know that hand soap was also considered dish soap. i'm so confused. but you can bet i will look more closely at my groceries from now on! who knows what amazing facts i will uncover.
