When I used the wrong cleaner

Looking back at this particular incident I can now smile at it but at the time it was a bit of an embarrassment for me.

This magical moment, as I would say, took place at my mom's home a few months ago when I offered to clean her tub and wash basins. So, off I went to fetch the bottle of cleaning detergent and before starting my work I smelled and sniffed the contents of the bottle and it did smell like cleaning detergent.

I took my time at cleaning tub and wash basins and all seemed to be well until my mom came by and we started chatting. I showed her the bottle that I was using but then there was a pause.

Oh no, was what I thought to myself. What's wrong? Then Mom said in a very gentle but reassuring voice, "You used the wrong cleaner. You used something entirely different." Then she laughed and I followed suit.
