All That Mildews Is Not Mold July 9, 2013

Posted by nrhatch in Health & Wellness, Home & Garden, Humor.

Poisoned AppleOne of my favorite product warning labels appeared on a spray bottle of Mildew Remover:

Use only in well-ventilated areas.


Just as rolling stones gather no moss, well-ventilated areas seldom attract mildew.

Stated another way . . . they’re selling a product that should only be used where it’s not needed and should never be used where it is needed.

Very helpful.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Methinks there is fungus on the brain …

Yes! Maybe they inhaled too many TOXIC fumes from their product? :mrgreen:

2. katecrimmins - July 9, 2013

At least they are safe from litigation?

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

That’s the likely reason . . . “well, we told them it was TOXIC.” 😯

Ha! 😆

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

That’s exactly my reaction, Pix. I snorted! 😆

Funny Nancy.

It is FUNNY at times to see the warnings we’re up against . . . like hotdogs and peanut butter being a “choking hazard” (aren’t ALL FOODS a potential choking hazard?) or that sticking our head in the plastic bags from packing materials presents a danger of suffocation. Duh! 🙄

Hehehe…maybe it just means to make sure it doesn’t get into your nose? Just a guess! lol

Definitely not a good idea to do your DEEP BREATHING exercises while cleaning off mildew in the shower. 😳

It is alarming to me how many of these things we actually have in the US.

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

Some people’s immune systems become severely taxed by the toxicity that surrounds us . . . they become ALLERGIC to their environment and have to take precautions. Like moving to Arizona or New Mexico.

You’re pretty quick (I already knew that), but I don’t think it would have occurred to me! That old critical thinking doesn’t always kick into gear until around noon! 🙂

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

I laughed out loud when I saw this warning. (But I did take care to “spray and go” rather than hanging around while the remover did its thing.) In the future, I will probably use white vinegar and water rather than spraying toxic fumes around.

Yes, this sounds silly- but I think they are just covering their tails from a frivolous lawsuit. I had a pair of khaki pants that came with a leather-like belt. I read the washing instructions to see the recommended water temp – the first instruction: “Remove belt before washing,” Duh!

Sad that common sense seems to be dying off, though.

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

I think so too. It’s a CYA instruction to “dumb bunnies” and “silly rabbits” who don’t have the sense they was born with. :mrgreen:

And LOL at the “remove belt” instruction. I’m surprised they didn’t tack on the . . . “due to danger of suffocation and/or breathing impairment, don’t wrap the belt around your neck.” 🙄

You’re very quick witted, Nancy. You’d have fun with my family because this is something we would all have a laugh about 😉

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

I expect that I WOULD have fun with your family since I love the humor in your books. BFF too. We were laughing out loud as I read him excerpts from mans-laughter. 😀

I always wanted to write comedy, but as soon as I try a mad lady pops into my head and we’re away on a dark wild journey! It’s bizarre 😀

nrhatch - July 9, 2013

Well, even Shakespeare’s comedies were tragedies. Life is tragic. Being able to inject humor into the pathos is a gift.

Perhaps one day your comedies will be more light-hearted. In the meantime, they are terrific . . . As Is. 😀

Aha! You have spotted the flaw in their cunning sales strategy, Nancy!
