Gosh, here's some news you can use. Yup. For those of you who don't think it is worth clicking on that link in order to avoid self-immolation, I'll give you the headline:
Banana Boat Recalls Sunscreen After Reports of People Catching on Fire
Seems that, if you spray on this sunscreen, you shouldn't stand too close to an open flame. At least, not until the product is completely dry. The manufacturer blames the spray valve, "which is over applying the product. As a result the lotion is taking longer to dry, which raises its flammability risk."
Raises? Now I don't know about you, but I'd rather not spray anything on my kids that has the remotest possibility of transforming them into human torches. Tell me, what exactly is the definition of "over apply," anyway? Does this mean that, while you are spraying your kids with sunscreen and yelling at them to cover their eyes and close their mouths, you have to figure out at what point you have crossed the line into child flambé territory?
You know, we didn't even have sunscreen when I was growing up. Instead, my mom slathered me with Noxzema. And no one caught fire.
