People have been doing just that. The problem is that its an all purpose cleaning agent.
Who's been drinking this without reading the label?!
It looks like grape kool aid. Dont think you would catch me drinking nething goofy looking like that without reading the label. Some all purpose cleaners do have a quite pleasant smell to them though!
Not to mention that it would taste like soap.
And perhaps after they did taste it, they would spit it out... I hope.
In one case, the daughter accidently put it in the fridge. Later, her mother came along without her glasses on and thought it was grape juice. Luckily it just makes you sick. But the manufacturer refuses to consider changing the packaging. I'll bet a few lawyers will eventually take care of that problem. :rofl:
Does it have alcohol in it? Ive heard of alcoholics carrying lysol bottles around and drinking from them.
Who would drink more than one swallow? Who would even swallow it ?
The bottle is Fabuloso though.
I don't know, but these were cases of accidental consumption.
Apparently the taste is bland enough that people swallow it before realizing that something is very wrong.
You would think that if you bought the stuff, you'd know you picked it up in the cleanser aisle, not the beverages aisle. Maybe the manufacturer has something against illiterate people. It does look like one of those weird fruit drink bottles, but I'd avoid drinking anything that purple even if someone swore to me it was juice (I don't like grape juice anyway).
Some people are stupid i guess. I can understand an infant getting into it because it was not stored away safely. But perhaps because the shape is similar to a bottle for spring water from a retail store, sumone thought it was a beverage!
It's in the Hispanic soap isle at my store.
You have an Hispanic soap aisle? Is Hispanic soap different from other kinds of soap?
Yeah, they're all cleaning products from Mexico, for the migrant workers, I guess. The labels are written in Spanish. If you could read the label, it's in Spanish. It's odd because we don't really have an hispanic population here.
Okay, the picture of the bottle is clearer at Colgate's site:
Umm...don't you think the mop and bucket on the label would give it away? Or the scent? I assume the purple one is the lavender scent...to me, lavender smells like soap (I love the smell, but it's definitely not something I'd want to drink...I have a lavender scented cleanser for my kitchen too that I bought to keep it really fresh smelling when I was selling my previous house). The blue one is ocean fresh, which who knows what it smells like, but I'm sure it's not a drinkable smell. There's a green called "early morning" and a yellow that's lemon. I've never yet run into a lemon cleaner that actually smells enough like lemon to mistake it for something drinkable either.
I'm leaning toward agreeing with blimkie, it seems some people are just stupid.
That's too funny. Even if you did have an hispanic population, I can't see why they wouldn't just be among the other cleansers, maybe at one end so they would be easier to find for people who want labels in spanish. Segregation for cleansers. :rofl:
Screw lawyers, if you're stupid enough to drink this stuff without looking at the bottle (or realizing that your grape juice was somehow in the household cleaning isle at the store) then you should be sick :D
Oh, wait just a minute here! There's something really fishy going on here. I opened up a bunch of links when I was searching for a better picture of the product and as I was closing them, noticed this one at a Mexican grocer's site:
Notice the label is different! No mop and broom. And now that I look back up at the picture in Ivan's post, I see it's this version of it. Seems they were worried about lawyers for the English speakers but not the hispanic population! :surprised
Edit: What the hey?! I also just noticed that at the grocery, it's advertised as a laundry soap, and at Colgate's site, it's listed as an all-purpose cleaner (nothing about laundry). Is this or is this not the same product?
Maybe they changed formula or something. I've seen labels getting subtle changes every once in a while.
