Heinz ketchup is the same (although not in bottles).

And its so you can distinct them from each other.

Ie: Shampoo right way up.
Conditioner opposite.

I welcome it, I was up half the night being bored to death by some random half-wit.
It'd be a welcome relief.

Spill it.

ask http://www.texperts.com/

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/153040/ask-up-to-6-questions-and-get-free-/

read the terms carefully, might cost beyond x times i reckon.

I tend to have a 2 in 1 shampoo, but if i do have seperate ones, then i stand both the same way, with the lids pointing downwards!
#36
oh got an answer this morning - texperts say it's to differentiate between shampoo and conditioner (i suppose whilst your suds are all over your hair ... and eyes). makes sense.
