Strange English in Osaka

"Please use as a cooler box freely and take the residue out with you".
Osaka has a lot of foreigners (compared to Sapporo, which in turn has a lot of foreigners compared to say any small village in Japan), so there were instructions in English on how to use for instance the refrigerator and the shampoo dispenser in my hotel room. The English was much better than you can normally expect, but there were some strange parts too.

"Try to keep the shampoo away from the eyes. If it occurs, wash immediately with lukewarm water."
