As a JPL employee with a past history on Mars missions, perhaps I am
overly sensitive about metric/English unit conversions, but a
liter/litre is about a quart, not a gallon.

Implying that soap is better than detergent? Curious as to why.

Brings to mind the joke that the Montana rangers advise wearing small
bells when hiking in the wilderness to scare away the bears, and
carrying pepper spray.

They further advise to learn the difference between black bears and
grizzlies. The droppings of black bears contain many berries and lots of
squirrel fur. The droppings of grizzlies contain small bells and smell
like pepper.
