Today I was feeling a little hungry, so I decided to pour myself a small bowl of healthy cereal. . .
While I was happily munching away, I did something that I always do absentmindedly, I read the box. More specifically, the ingredient list. . .
I remembered thinking, hmm. Trisodium phosphate. Where have I heard that before? And then it hit me…
In the past, I’ve done some renovating / flipping houses with my family. Quite often, we used Trisodium Phosphate as a commercial-grade detergent. This stuff eats through tobacco grease like nobody’s business. It’s also great for removing wallpaper – just don’t use it in the bathroom because it will eat through porcelain.
I found the box I have in storage and pulled it out to be sure I wasn’t mistaken. . .
The box is a little banged up, but the print is still legible.
Just in case you didn’t catch that little warning at the bottom. . .
Check out the warnings on the back:
An abrasive synthetic chemical that causes burns.
But I guess its good for you. . . ?
So I ask myself, WTF?! I just ate poison. . .
Be safe out there, guys – and ALWAYS read your food labels!
