Hand dish washing
Posted by Elsaba on 11/06/2010
I usually wash my dishes with a Dobie pad and Palmolive. I used to be able to do a sinkful of dishes with one squirt of Palmolive. Now I must re-load 2 or 3 times, so it seems the product is watered down from its previous formula.

Excellent, valid complaint. I've noticed many similar products are not what they used to be.

Ironically, in my kitchen the Palmolive is the stronger detergent, and I only use it on grease. I usually use Ajax. I don't use any of the popular anti-bacterial stuff.

Maybe the Palmolive recipe has changed. My bottle is 7 years old.

I am sure it is not what it used to be. Like hothead13 states, many products are not.
A 7 year old bottle of Palmolive trmn8r? That is wild!

The concentrated dishwashing liquids only take a small amount to suds up a sinkful. I remember Palmolive as being very thick and effective. They may very well have changed their formula to comply with environmentally safe ingredient movement guidelines, which research shows isn't really so green after all in many cases.

I think they just diluted it more, and kept the same package sizing. Depending on the fact that many people are more likely to use automatic dishwashers, instead of washing by hand.

The product might very well be "watered down" for whatever reason. Same sized bottle yet the results aren't the same. This is not the consumer's imagination. I really grow weary of it.

A long time ago, dish detergents were all reduced in size because they were supposed to be concentrated. Then gradually over the years, the containers remained small but the content became less and less concentrated. I think it was a way for the manufacturers to adjust consumers' minds to getting a smaller container for the price they used to pay for a larger one. That's my theory.

It's a racket. A pound of bacon isn't a pound anymore, nor is coffee. The packaging is the same size but they are putting less and less in there. When they figure out how to give us 11 eggs and convince us it is a dozen, they will be on it like the wind. Mark my words, some white-collar wizard has been thinking about it all year.

Don't get me started, Lee!..

Downsizing is one of my pet peeves. It's not the downsizing itself but that the packaging remains the same. I don't check the weight on things I've been buying for years, nor do I want to. If I see a smaller package, I'll know there is less inside. At least ice cream containers are sized proportionately, but that's probably because it's necessary, I can't even remember the last time I saw a pound of coffee. Most cans are only 3/4 full.

I hadn't thought about eggs. Maybe it will just be reduced to six and you'll have to buy two to get a dozen.

The Palmolive original green has been watered down. I bought some in two different states and both had not lasting lather, thus, you must use more and buy more. Not me, I am switching to another brand. That's too bad they do not care about their loyal customer. Not any more and I will avoid all Colgate products.

Max White Toothbrush Really Works
Posted by L Lake on 12/18/2009
I was more than a bit skeptical when I bought the Max White toothbrush from Colgate, because I've used teeth cleaning products that claimed to whiten your teeth, but at least for me that never happened. I was skeptical that the Max White toothbrush would actually do as it says and remove stains and whiten my teeth. I am happy to report that this toothbrush really does work and I would recommend it to anybody. My teeth are now looking white and I couldn't be any happier. Thank you Colgate-Palmolive for this wonderful product, as it is a blessing for me.
