She had an emotional roller-coaster ride, imagining all sorts of terrible things, until my son read it a little closer, and told her it was for cleaning faceshields, what did she think it was for?

All was calm by time I got home, but my son and daughter gave me a hard time about it any way. I told them "Your mother knew I was a player when she married me, so calm down."

Maybe I you could change packaging and making the use more visible on these things before some one else gets 'caught'.
Now that is funny! I hate to admit this, but I did not know that Raincoat was another word for condom until well after I owned the trademark. Even my lawyer who charged me a small fortune did not mention it. Of course, he did not ever see the packaging!

I am working on a package that is more image like. But won't happen for quite a while.

BTW, how did your wife know about raincoats?
