    Spotted on the chemical storage shelf in an adjacent laboratory. Now where did I put the MSDS?

      Well given the renewed interest in this, I just went next door and took another look. The can does not have an expiry date, and members of the lab reckon that it may well have been there several decades...

      Here is a typical MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for water, which presumably would apply to this product too.

      My favourite part:
      "Emergency/First Aid Proc: EYES: FLUSH WITH POTABLE WATER FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES. SEE MD (FP N). SKIN: FLUSH WITH COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF WATER. SEE MD "

      I'd like to add this on the shelf next to my can of B.S. Repellent.

      Hi David, I just added your picture to my recipe for home canning dehydrated water (in French only, sorry !). It's a home canning blog with this "april fool" joke running since a while now. This page is linked from many recipes using "eau mouillée" (wet water) in the list of ingredients.

      Your picture is the perfect addition to it.

      Thanks for sharing !

      I found this on the net.
      Bernard claims you can use this stuff as antifreeze in VW's.
      I thought that was funny since I hear Bugs are water cooled!
