Ranch Dressing Does Not Make Good Body Paint...

These are the words that came out of my son's mouth as he came down stairs, all red, blotchy and itchy. For some reason, he thought he'd take the ranch dressing up into the bath tub and paint himself. He started to itch, turned on the water to rinse himself off...and it didn't work. On the positive side, the mess was contained to the bathtub. On the negative side, somehow he got the dressing in a spot he shouldn't have.....and it was quite itchy. However, I wasn't going to be scratching in there!

Another lesson learned...bathroom cleaner does not cut through ranch dressing. It sort of clots it up, like curdled milk. Hot water and vinegar does the trick. I guess soap scum and Ranch dressing are 2 totally different entities, when it comes to cleaning........

What is in that stuff? I have a toddler aged granddaughter that got a red splotchy face after using ranch dressing as a dip for chicken nuggets and missing her mouth sometimes as little ones do.
