I love Dettol.
I recently bought a bottle of the good stuff and, when alone, I unscrew the cap and take a quick sniff.
I'm not an addict, but it is a nice strong fresh scent. (I don't inhale).
I very nearly died, when I read the very last warning in the green label, I involuntarily snorted a nostril full.....
DO NOT HOLD A BOTTLE OF DETTOL TO YOUR NOSE WHILST READING THIS.....
The above photo reads as follows:
- Do not use Dettol Liquid: on eczema or similar dry skin conditions
- If you are allergic to Chloroxylenol or any of the other ingredients
- After the expiry date printed on the bottle
- Do not use undiluted
- Do not swallow
- Not recommended for use around cats.
What do the makers of Dettol have against cats?
I know why I don't like cats.
They smell, they are ignorant, they make me itch, they have a look that says "I know what you did and it disgusts me" before flicking a leg in the air and licking their own bottoms... the list goes on.
But what happened, on that fateful day, when somebody, innocently, used a bit of Dettol in the vicinity of a moggy?
Was there a huge explosion or did a crack form in the space/time continuum?
Was THIS the actual cause of financial crash?
Was Cilla dabbing some antiseptic swabs on a small cut to her hand when a stray cat rushed by, knocking her over? (too soon?)
At this point we just don't know.
However, if you DO have a cat - I have some Dettol.
I'm sure we can do a deal.
Here is a song I made just to show how much I love Dettol.
