In a moment of boredom I actually looked at the storage instructions on a bottle of spring water. On the back it actually states "store in a cool and dry place". What happens if I don't? What happens if water gets wet? Does it go mouldy? Just as bad is the expiry date on a box of sea salt. It expires on 21 Dec 10. Er slight problem here, the salt is as old as the Earth, about 4500 million years, but this salt will time expire in about 3 years. Why?What about the rest of the planet, is that also about to go off? Any RRs found other brain dead instructions on consumer goods?
