PSA: Please Do Not Attempt To Cook With Shower Gel

Or any other beauty products, for that matter.

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.
