PSA: Please Do Not Attempt To Cook With Shower Gel

Or any other beauty products, for that matter.

Reddit user petermal67 posted this picture with the caption, "My friends food kept tasting funny. She bought new saucepans and was about to buy a new dishwasher....then I saw what she was cooking with."

If you look closely at the label, you can clearly see that this bottle is marked as shower gel.

I blame Jessica Simpson and her "edible" line of beauty products called Dessert Treats from the early 2000s.

This was the beginning of the end.

Hopefully this is the last time someone uses shower gel as a cooking oil, but just in case, here are some other products you should NOT be cooking with:

This is not icing for your cinnamon buns.

Philosophy / Via

It's actually shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath in one.

This is not the secret ingredient for your grandma's lemon basil chicken recipe.

Yves Rocher / Via

It's shower gel.

This is not a premade pumpkin spice latte.

This is also shower gel.

These are not eggs for your Saturday brunch.

They're actually little soaps.

And this is not Himalayan pink salt for you to use on your eggs.

Herbivore / Via

It's actually bath soaking salt.

While we're on the subject, please do not eat this candle that smells like french fries.

The scent may bring you back to the good old days of hitting up McDonald's after algebra class, but please, don't eat this.

Or this one that smells like that juicy watermelon you ate on the 4th of July.

And please, for the love of all that is holy, do not put this pizza perfume anywhere near your mouth.
