Important Product Awareness Tip

...from J.Greely; or more specifically, his sister...

Public Service Announcement for the uninitiated (and others, like me, who don’t read labels on things like Bounty): They now make paper towels with dish soap in them. Don’t use them to make bacon in the microwave. #justsayin’ On the bright side, clean up was suprisingly easy ….

Who thought that was a good idea? 
Besides cooking, these paper towels are also pretty much useless for drying dishes, first aid, anything involving pets or whatever else one might  use a paper towel for in a pinch.. 

"...The HELL!?"

Yes. Emergency backup coffee filters are right out...

Also, from the comments, it appears that the Russians may be ahead of some of us in bacon preparation technology.

1 The more I think about it, the dumber it gets, because once the wrapper is removed, they apparently look like ordinary paper towels. So if you see them sitting out, there's nothing obvious that says they shouldn't be used as napkins or for draining the grease after cooking hamburger. "Oh, wait, those are the special paper towels" is not compatible with most of the kitchens (home and office) I've been in for the past N years.

2 Same thing happens with Aloe-infused Kleenex. The identifier used to be on the plastic wrap.

I fell into a similar trap by buying sugar-free candy by accident just recently. To make it more fun, I get poisoned by some artificial sweeteners.
