What’s Up With This Shampoo Bottle?

“Apply generously to scalp… rub lather gently into hair… rinse out.”
Really, what else am I going to do with it? It’s shampoo!
Was I planning on using it to clean my kitchen tabletop? Putting it on my toothbrush or pouring it in my coffee mug? Using it as a glue, a solvent, a washing machine product, a skin cream?
But I suppose that without said warning on the shampoo bottle, if I were to apply it ‘roughly’ to my head and hurt myself, or if I drank it or rubbed it directly onto my open eyeballs, then I could turn around and sue the shampoo company for damages, so they’re just covering their asses.
Just the fact that a company actively recognizes that there are people stupid enough to use shampoo improperly is hard to believe. Perhaps all shampoos should just come with a big, bold warning on the label:
“If you’re stupid enough to use this product incorrectly — then clean hair is the least of your problems.”
