Fake Tanning Gunk Is Destroying Some Mattresses in the UK

Bronzers and other gooey, UV-free artificial tanners may help the porcelain-hued citizens of the world achieve that sun-burnished quality so desirable by today’s aesthetics, but such tanners will also turn everyone who uses them into giant, weeping puddle monsters that seep through sheets and ruin perfectly adequate… » 9/01/13 4:30pm 9/01/13 4:30pm
