My Hands, They Smell Like the Laundry!

Serves me right for not putting the foamy stuff in my bathroom and leaving it for lucky guests or visitors.

We've run out of soap but apparently had some left from when I bought a crapload at Bath & Body Works. Being an adventurous fellow at heart, I decided to buy one of every kind (they were like 50% off) and now we're scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Before, when we had the luscious scents of things like "Mango Heaven" or "Moonlit Scarlet Cucumber Ambrosia Milshake" we were happy. Now we have no choice but to use something called, mysteriously, Cotton Blossom.

It smells like fabric softener and cleaning chemicals and the smell just won't disappear. As I am typing this if I scratch my nose or waive my hands near my face, the horrible odor wafts ever closer to me. It smells like I fisted the bear from Snuggles in the back alley of a laundromat.

BEWARE... Linked because it's Not Safe for Washing.

You have been warned.

Usually I stick to only unscented stuff, the heavy perfumes set off my asthma.

Oh well, at least "clean laundry" is a nice smell, right?

You sure that's liquid detergent? Or a protein rich substitute?

If you can't get rid of the pungent aroma of bleach... umm, that's probably not from your laundry.

! Why would you be waving your hands in front of your face anyway? Looking for tracers?

My roomate bought some detergent labeled "Tropical fiesta", but it smells like bananas!

"You can't see me!!!"

Ok, just felt like using a WWE reference.

My hands smell like blood.
No matter how hard I scrub the blood won't come off.
So I cut them off.
I still smell the blood but I have nothing to scrub.
But on the plus side I can still type with my nose.

There are worst things your hands could smell like.

Does anybody else smell their hands after using the bathroom, just to check if they need to be washed?

Just asking...

That was disturbing. How do you control-alt-delete with your nose?
