The unexpected side effects of inhaling Cascade dishwasher detergent*

The good: Cleared sinuses
The bad: Non-stop sneezing for the next 20 minutes

The good: Alert and hypersensitive to my surroundings
The bad: Massive headache

Undetermined: Uncontrollable fits of laughter for no apparent reason
Undetermined: Vertigo
Undetermined: Warped vision

Bad… but amusing: Hallucinations

*Disclosure: Pure accident. In no way did I intend on snorting dishwasher soap.


  1. I laughed out loud at this! Especially the laughing symptom. That happens to me all the time. I do something really not very bright (not saying you aren't bright, but you have to watch how you snort), and then I burst into giggles. And it lasts for hours and usually at inappropriate times, like your mate comes home to tell you he just got laid off but your mind just skipped over to that not very bright moment and you burst into giggles. {sigh}
