Using the wrong thing.

Using the wrong thing.

Remember the days, when cars had more shiny bits than now? There were products to posh up body, bumpers and so on, yet funnily they often looked and smelled much the same once the lid was off. Today there must be products for more than motors just like that.

I don't know about you, but I've been tempted to use a wrong product, and done so with no adverse effect.

Today's temptation and sin arose, because I'd forgot to buy a new bottle of bath and shower gel. I used shampoo instead. Nothing adverse happened. I haven't looked to see if my hidden forest has a new lustre.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Using the wrong thing.

Nothing adverse has happened so far.

 

Give it time......when the itching starts or the trees start dying then you will remember to use the correct item next time.

 

Always read the label !

Re: Using the wrong thing.

I often think the same when scanning the cleaning products in a supermarket, or even more so in Lakeland.

 

Just a marketing ploy to increase the profits of the likes of Unilever, Procter & Gamble et al.

Re: Using the wrong thing.

Used to find the same with pet food - have you seen how much choice there is these days? I found that whatever I fed our little mutt he still survived.

As for suds and stuff, at one time I used coal tar soap for above and below and nary a whimper of complaint - except from the Mrs once married as she could not stand the smell of it. Crazy2

Re: Using the wrong thing.

It's a scientific fact that women have a keener sense of smell than men.

Make of that whatever you will.

Now for a keen sense of smell what sbout the lady featured in Dr Gabriel Westons show. By smelling T shirts, she sniffed out very accurately actual and potential Parkinsons sufferers.

And yet they drown themselves in alcohol-suspended chemical compositions they call "perfume"... Funny

 

But, I guess if their sense of smell is better, maybe that's why fresh cut roses don't smell like farts to them, cos they do to me... Crazy2

@shutter

"You managed to get married........"

Not you as well!

It was and is a lovely fresh clean smell - as kids they used to wash and scrub us with it at the children's home I was in, so maybe that's why it stayed with me for so long.

Now of course it's Old Spice of nothing, a proper pensioner pong.
