    Obviously missing something here, why put it in a different bottle?

    Nasty !

    Given that you do get any on clothes or furniture then, from bitter experience, we washed the blue garment in cold water to get off as much as possible and then- the important bit- hung it in bright sunshine. The dye is very photo-reactive and after a few hours, there was no sign at all of the blue stain.

    This was in Spain however...not sure about UK sunshine this year though !

    Another good reason to have a SOG and no chemicals:D

    Hope it didn't do too much damage.

    Having worked in an A&E dept. I have seen no end of situations where things in wrong bottles have caused big problems, sometimes fatal ones. How many times must I have seen patients who put all their tablets into one bottle to save having to mess about with more than one bottle. At the time they might think they know which are which but it can be crucial if they should be involved in an accident or suddenly become too unwell to communicate in an emergency.

    I recall an incident when Jeyes fluid had been put into another container for some reason. It turned out to be a Coke bottle. When the family were having a party someone found it and took a swig from the bottle with horrific consequences.

    Need I say more?

    A vote for the blue stuff here.

    Been using it for years, never any issues with smell etc. tried the bio stuff after all the recommendations on here and the bog smelt like...... Well a bog.

    Mind you I've never tried drinking it :eek:
