I don't know what Dettol Antiseptic Soap is :Q

I was at a poker game and somehow the topic of dettol came up. Apperantly every single asian & a Scotsman knew what dettol was except me.

Cheers,

Can be used to put on stencils.


What the hell does that mean? Is that like a Chinese tattoo?

Hong Kong in the 90s, people drank dettol to suicide.
So right now Dettol has a connotation of suicide.
