What are they thinking?

I wish the makers of all the froo-froo gels, bath salts, shampoos, and related stuff would give a thought to those of us who, ah, shall we say, are a bit impaired in the eyesight? I fall into the bracket (female, mother, grandmother, co-worker, friend, whatever) that I can pretty well count on receiving at least one froo-froo item over the course of the year. Mother's Day, birthday, Christmas, what-have-you.


The labels often have a small font, with a few swirlies thrown in. I don't know about you, but when I'm in the shower in the early morning hours, without my glasses, I have a heck of a time distinguishing what is what. And not only do they do the swirly small font, they tell you what it is in French as well as English. So then after I work to focus, I still can't read it! My solution? Limited froo-froos in the shower. I get the combination shampoo/conditioner so I don't have to try and figure out which is which. Right now I only have 2 other items on the shelf, each of a shape that I can distinguish them pretty easy. Good thing, because I sure couldn't read what they are.

I guess another solution would be to take a marks-a-lot and write what it is in big bold letters. But then that wouldn't be as froo-frooie, would it?

LOL I don't use fru-fru bath stuff myself. When I remarried, my new male-in-laws - the single guys - gifted me with fruity, flowery stuff. I put it in the hall closet. Whenever my son needed a girly gift, he raided the closet.

You need to grab a marker and label large enough that you can figure out what's in the tube before the hot water runs out!

I had to laugh, hears a word of advice. Never ever keep Nair in the shower stall!!! I can't see any writing without my glasses big or small. I love the suggestion of marking with a really really big S, C, or B thanks for the tip, Sherry.

Elsie, thank you for commenting on my page. I do drop the feed dogs on this machine and it works great. As a matter of fact, I use it strictly for quilting. The machine has to be turned upside down and there is a screw-like knob that drops the feed dogs. It was a gift and probably the best one I've ever gotten.

Happy Quilting
