Heh…I saw this recently on the “Selling It” page of Consumer Reports, and I just had to link it here.

Y’know how a lot of cleaning products are named after pure and natural substances or phenomena? For instance, there’s Tide detergent, Ivory soap, Sunlight dishwashing liquid, and so on.

The only problem is that they did so in Farsi, the native language of Iran. And the Farsi word for snow is…um…eh…well…let’s just say that it doesn’t translate so well into English.
