Default Cif makes yer eye sting?

Hi All,

There I was happily cleaning a fridge that was given to me (we never
used) and was giving to someone else (setting up home for the first
time) and as I put the bottle of Cif (formally Jif) down a bit spurted
out of the bottle and into my eye ;-(

I bought some Optrex eye wash and gave my eye a couple of washes but
it continued hurting (well more like 'very uncomfortable' than hurt)
all day and has only gone back to normal from when I woke up this
morning?

So, what is it in Cif cream cleaner that would hurt an eye so much
please?

Also has anyone else had that happen, when you put one of these flip
cap 'easy squeeze' style bottles down a bit firmly and it spits back
out? (It could equally been car polish etc) I wonder if there is need
for a baffle just inside the spout?

I also notice that the latest squeezy tomato sauce type bottles have a
rubber diaphragm in the top that you have to squeeze the stuff past ..
maybe that would do it ( also stop some coming out if the bottle gets
knocked over)?

All the best ..

I am not certain, but I believe there have been reports of Flash
cleaner in the past causing eye damage, so there is nasty stuff
around.

Horrendous thing, great for keeping the top of the bottle clean, but
you have to apply so much pressure to the bottle to force it out that
if you arent quite aimed right, you get projectile tomato sauce
shooting across the table.

Is Cif abrasive ? That could scratch the eye and create day-long
symptoms.
Be glad you don't wear contact lenses. It hurts even more then. You
have to try and get the lens out whilst eyes are watering etc, and the
stuff gets trapped beneath the lens !
Also, don't confuse lens cleaner and lens wetting solution.

I had thought in these days of super precaution / liability that most
chemicals are safe enough to drink (compared with yesteryear I mean)
... like Creosote etc? do not do this at home!

You are correct though .. judging by the discomfort yesterday .. I
think 'arc eye' was less painful!

LOL .. been there done that (the first time I used it).

I asked my 15 yr old daughter where she wanted some sauce and she said
'everywhere'. I squeezed, and squeezed harder then woosh .. all over
the tray, worktop , my leg .. ;-(

She just looked at me and said "I meant everywhere on my dinner .."

I thought all household stuff said that if it was accidentally splashed in
the eye it shold be rinsed with plenty of water. Just now I've been cleaning
and found a bottle of Cif - yes, it said that.

I wouldn't use Optrex for anything, what's the point? Instant dilution is
far more effective.

I hope there's no permanent damage - I don'tsuppose there is.

I don't know. It seems to me that household cleaners
and disinfectants have become more 'industrial strength'
in recent years.

What about the stupidity of a spray caustic oven cleaner?
Spray it into that enclosed space and it comes back into
your face... Caustic, in your eyes and down your lungs.

You are probably right Mary.

I'm sure it would have been.

Yes of course she is ... just I had just done mine and I got the 15 yr

Thinking back, it could well have just been a trap and she knew I'd

In my experience it's no better than plain water - but that's just my
experience. The opticians I know (all four of them!) say the same.

I do have some 'artificial tears' which do soothe - but I wouldn't know
where to find them in an emergency.

Sober, yes. Until after dinner. Awake, not 100%. An Italian neighbour died
in the night and there was much to-ing and fro-ing of an ambulance crew who
couldn't get access, police who had to break down her back door security
grill (she was paranoid) only to be too late, wailing sons, daughter,
grandchildren, assorted spouses and ex spouses, girl-friends, boy friends,
partners, hangers on and other Italian neighbours, some of whom have been
sworn enemies with the corpse for years. It caused disturbance from 0430.

It does make me wonder about over-locking property when you live alone. We
don't have any security devices except five lever locks so doors can be
hacked down..

Well you can only break it once. Might as well carry on practising washing
up.

Empirical evidence leads me to believe that this is considered fairly

I've never chastised him noisily. Silence is a much more effective put-down,
didn't you know? These days I can't be bothered chastising anyway,
withdrawal of favours is even better.

It's not at all annoying, it's expected.

It's certainly not a good tactic. It never works.
