why do shampoo bottles stand the right way up and conditioner bottles upside-down?

...or is it the other way round?

This question has bothered me for years. Please someone put me out of my misery!

Ie: Shampoo right way up.
Conditioner opposite.

It'd be a welcome relief.

Spill it.

Have fun visiting.

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!

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.
