We've all heard and read stories about people brushing their teeth with Deep Heat, or adding salt instead of caster sugar to a cake, (these should never be put into identical canisters anyway), swilling down a bottle of white vinegar thinking it's water.
Well, I've read them too and laughed while quietly thinking, how the heck does this happen? Stoopid person read the gosh-darned label why don't you?
Okay, so we all know how spray can deodorant works, right? Remove cap, shake vigorously, apply deodorant.
Well, this morning I picked up a can, removed the cap, shook vigorously, and stood in stunned disbelief as a dust cloud of white foot powder settled around me in the bathroom.
The worst part? The foot powder can is so completely different from the deodorant can.
The deodorant can is tall and mostly white.
The foot powder can is much shorter and is dark blue with a huge yellow footprint on it.
And I don't even keep them together on the same shelf!
