Laundry detergent + GW frat = disaster
Warning: Do not mix with GW frat boys
The geniuses at GW’s Pi Kappa Alpha decided it would be fun to lubricate their Slip n’ Slide with laundry detergent this weekend. Now, generally speaking, detergent and skin don’t mix so well. Cue stream of GW sorority girls heading to the hospital with skin irritations….
The Hatchet reports:
In an e-mail circulated to 10 sorority presidents on Saturday afternoon, University officials warned sorority presidents that the Kirkland brand laundry detergent used to lubricate a slip ‘n slide at Pi Kappa Alpha’s annual Fireman’s Challenge philanthropy event could cause skin irritation and burns.
Possible symptoms from the laundry detergent could also include shortness of breath, throat closing and severe pain in the genital region, the e-mail said. The e-mail advised the presidents to forward the message on to their sorority sisters.
Ironically enough, the event was a fundraiser for the D.C. Firefighters Burn Foundation. Oh, GW…
