William Davies, a 45-year-old single man from Porthcawl in South Wales, has been charged with using a spray cleaner intended for use only in bathrooms to wipe down his kitchen worktops and hob when he ran out of cleaning fluid.
‘This is a despicable irresponsible crime’ British Cleaning Products Association spokesman Barry Scott told reporters. ‘Our members slave over the design of specific products for different purposes, and the idea that a kitchen sink and a bathroom basin could be cleaned with the same cleanser is ridiculous. Unless it’s our new No-Grime All-in-One Multi-room Power Foam Cleanser. It’s unstoppable!’
Davies is to plead not guilty to the charge, on the grounds that no single man living on his own would be using any kind of bathroom cleaning products in any circumstances.
