I purchase those easy to use disinfecting wipes. The ones I use are a store brand, but they are most likely made by Lysol or Clorox.
I am not exactly certain that they are any more efficacious than hot water and a bit of dish detergent, but they are mightily handy.
I think that it’s the name that seduces me into the purchase. “Disinfecting wipes” has an allure of safety. After all, according to the label, they kill 99.9% of bacteria in 15 seconds. I try not to worry about the 00.01% of un-killed bacteria!
And there is also the advertised “lemon scent”. Who would ever doubt that “lemon scent” makes all the difference! One of these days I will try to purchase some “lemon scented” lemons.
Today, in a fit of curiosity I read the “fine print” on the label. It included these words:
“It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling”.
Having read this I am terrified that the FEDS will soon be after me.
True enough I have not tried to eat one of the wipes, or to build a tent with them, or to use one to write my shopping list.
But who knows which Federal Law I may have violated as I have used the wipes?
Please: offer some suggestions as to my possible misdemeanors or felonies in the use of them.
Pretty please: do not call the FBI.
