Caution! Wet Floor! / cleaner

Caution! Wet Floor!
Caution! Wet Floor!

This design combines the detergent and acid-base indicator(phenolphthalein) in a condensed shot. One shot of cleaner is enough to be diluted in one pail of water.
Degreaser dissolves once it’s cast in water. The solution turns pink because of the phenolphthalein. When the staff is mopping the floor, the floor becomes wet and pink, and makes it more noticeable for passers-by.
After some time, the pink on the floor disappears as the water evaporates. When the floor is dry, no pink remains. Cleaner has served its warning function, and the floor has returned to its original state, clean and safe.
