It could have just been a sort of intro price or (more likely), it's just yet another thing that has gone up in price in the past several months.
GenuineNerd on 2012-01-22:
Perhaps the formula has changed, thus the higher price, and why you're not getting the same results. Especially when you've been using the same product for more than 20 years, and became accustomed to what the product was selling for. If possible, maybe check other stores-they may sell Frost & Tip for less than what you're paying now.

Posted by on
LUV'S SIZE 3 DIAPERS BURST AND THE FILLING GOES ALL OVER INCLUDING ALL OVER MY 19 MO. OLD GRANDAUGHTER. WE ALREADY CHANGE HER 2 TO 3 TIMES A NIGHT TO TRY TO KEEP THIS FROM HAPPENING BUT TO NO AVAIL. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS, IT'S LIKE THE SEAMS BURST OPEN, DON'T KNOW IF IT'S FROM TOO MUCH FILLING OR WHAT, BUT IT SURE IS NASTY AND UNSANITARY.
I KNOW THEY ALSO MAKE PAMPERS ETC, WHAT ARE WE TO DO???????

Consider buying a product made for "overnights." Ordinary diapers are designed for night-time duty, you have to buy the overnight diapers, they are made to hold up to more "use."
Slimster on 2011-07-17:
should say "aren't" designed for night-time duty.
Cwazychicken on 2011-07-17:
Luv diapers are very bad when it comes to leaking. I would recommend using parents choice diapers (from walmart). Cheap and they do not leak! Unless they are too small (my son used to have a lot of leak problems with luvs....reason I won't buy them again!), other wise I haven't had much problems with those.....
Skye on 2011-07-17:
Pampers was my one and only choice. NEVER had any problems with them. They are worth the money in my book.

You should also contact Luv's.

As Slimster said, try the Overnight diapers. I believe Pampers has them, and they do work well. I've never had issues with Pampers, and they were my diaper of choice for two kids.
Vinnie11 on 2011-07-17:
Luvs have been leaking and exploding for over 20 years. There is a reason they are cheaper than the others. Now that you have seen those crystals inside the diaper first hand, note that they are also in Pampers and Huggies. Those brands just do a better job of keeping them hidden.

I always preferred cotton cloth. Disposables were a last resort.
Vinnie11 on 2011-07-17:
Cloth is king! They make such cute cloth diapers these days too. I was going to suggest that but she is 19 months old and will be out of them before the holidays probably.
olie on 2011-07-17:
Use a larger size for overnights, or the special overnight diapers.

Also, practice the potty-training stuff: Limit liquids after dinner. Don't put her to bed or nap with a bottle or sippy cup or whatever.

Criticism of the design for the tube for Crest 3D White Toothpaste
Posted by on
I agree with the consumer who didn't like the design of the container for 3D Crest White. I find it difficult to use all the toothpaste because of the large opening of the tube that seems to be immovable when tying to get the last of the tube. I am wasting a considerable amount of toothpaste by having to leave it in the tube. Perhaps another design would be in order for the tube.

Cut the tube open and dip. (Keep it in the drawer so your company doesn't see it. LOL!) Don't do it too close to the mouth, more toward the middle so you can fold it over and close it enough that it doesn't harden. You will find a few days more in there. I hate the new designs and have found that many manufacturers are going this route.

this is what I use as well, and agree!!

Tide Television Commercial
Posted by on
I am very upset about the Tide television commercial where a young lady asks her mother if she has seen her green blouse. The mother replies that it is 'not her style' but it quickly becomes apparent that she is lying as she is seen partying and wearing the 'green blouse'. She then retrieves it from the laundry hamper and washes it and secretly replaces it in her daughters closet.

What is the message that is being promoted here? That parents cannot be trusted. That parents lie to their kids? Honesty was left buried in the 20th century?

Shame on Proctor and Gamble.

DebtorBasher on 2010-09-21:
How many parents told their kids that Santa will bring them presents, or the tooth fairy will leave money for their tooth or that Easter basket that suddenly appeared over night was left from the Easter Bunny?
I understand your point, but I honestly don't think kids will be questioning their parent's honesty based on this TV commercial.
But, you have the right to voice your complaint if you're bothered by it, that's what this site is for.
Anonymous on 2010-09-21:
Perhaps the OP is overreacting and grabbing for straws. If you truly want to scrutinize and overanalyze the commercial, you could go so far as to say that the commercial conveys a very poor message to parenting skills of the mother, since she still does her teenage daughter's laundry, or that her daughter is too immature to handle everyday household chores. Combed over finely enough, any commercial can be flawed.
Anonymous on 2010-09-21:
Yet another attack on American values by the Madison Avenue leftest elites who want nothing more than for young Americans to be so distrusting of the individual that one can't even trust one's own mother. Same BS they pulled in Moscow in 20's. Nothing new under the sun they say.

Well I say to hell with Tide's socialist agenda, socialist propaganda and socialist laundry detergent. Let Obama wash his tighty-whities in Tibe but by gosh not this real American I'll tell ya what. These colors don't run and you can bank on it.

James_236 on 2010-09-21:
Actually the mother didn't lie. It was more like being evasive. The daughter says, "Mom did you borrow my green shirt?". The mother replies, "It's not really my style, honey" without giving a direct answer to the question.
momsey on 2010-09-22:
OK, now I've seen the famous commercial! It's cute! Go mom!

I agree with James, the mother didn't lie, she was evasive with her answer.

Mother Daughter Green Blouse Commercial
Posted by on
Your Mother daughter commercial where the mother lies to her daughter about having worn the daughter's blouse says volumes about the character and honor of your company.

Today's business world may be a life and death struggle for survival, but Character still counts. This ad is disgusting.

Venice09 on 2010-09-16:
Oh, no.. not again.

I'll say the same thing I said on the other review. Maybe the mom buys all her daughter's clothes and launders them too. The least she should get back is the option of borrowing something once in a while. There could even be an understanding between mother and daughter about sharing clothes. I think the mom was trying to hide the fact that she stained the blouse, not so much that she borrowed it.

I've seen a lot of disgusting things, but this commercial is not one of them.
PepperElf on 2010-09-16:
now if she was borrowing underpants ... that would be a bit disgusting
but a blouse?

hell ... she fits into her daughter's blouse... that's pretty cool :)
Venice09 on 2010-09-16:
Pepper, that was actually my first reaction to the commercial. She fits into her daughter's blouse! Yay for mom!

My daughter is so tiny. I was always envious of her wardrobe. If I fit into anything, believe me I'd be borrowing it too!

Skye on 2010-09-17:
I don't see anything wrong with that commercial, other than that's one hideous looking blouse. Mothers and daughters share clothing all the time, and may or may not tell the other one when they are borrowing something.
cjhbtv on 2010-10-05:
I'm sorry for all of you that think this commercial was cute. I was very disappointed to see a Mother lying to her daughter and the daughter pretending that she didn't know. It seems to be saying that lying is O.K. Tide has always been a favorite of mine, but now I don't know how I feel about your product or your company.
Venice09 on 2010-10-05:
cjhbtv, you would actually let that commercial stop you from using your favorite laundry detergent? Do you think that all the people involved in bringing Tide to the market and into your home are one hundred percent honest? I think you are holding people to a standard that no one can possibly live up to. The commercial is trying to make the point that Tide works so well, the daughter never even knew the mom stained the blouse. Those are just actors reading their lines for a commercial to get people to buy Tide. It's not a reality show.

Your feelings are your own and no one can take them away, but you might want to reconsider your reasoning. What will it prove if you stop buying Tide?
PepperElf on 2010-10-05:
"I''m sorry for all of you that think this commercial was cute."

I'm sorry that you feel the need to pity those of us who don't feel the same way as you. Hell if my mom wanted to borrow something of mine I'd let her. She's Mom.

Then again I never get that worked up over any commercial. So if you want to feel sorry for me over that... um. OK?
jktshff1 on 2010-10-05:
So,Stan & cjh, do you also "boycott" movies and shows where actors lie? No difference, it's a couple of actor's acting, has nothing to do with real life.

GAIN DETERGENT DISAPPOINTMENT
Posted by on
ILLINOIS -- I RECENTLY PURCHASED A JUG OF GAIN DETERGENT WITH BAKING SODA. NOTHING ON THE LABEL INDICATED IT TO CONTAIN COLORING, WHICH I HAVE TO AVOID. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT TO DISCOVER UPON OPENING THE JUG, IT DID HAVE COLORING ADDED. THIS IS NOT JUST A LITTLE COLORING--IT IS A VERY DARK GREEN COLOR.

THEIR LABEL SIMPLY SAYS: "INGREDIENTS INCLUDE BIODEGRADABLE SURFACTANTS (ANIONIC AND NONIONIC) ENZYMES AND BAKING SODA."
NEEDLESS TO SAY, IF P&G CHOOSES TO LIMIT THEIR INGREDIENT LIST THIS WAY, I WILL BUY NONE OF THEIR PRODUCTS.

I REALIZE MANY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH COLORING, BUT WHY NOT LET THE BUYER KNOW IF IT IS INCLUDED. AND WHAT IS THE POINT OF ADDING COLORING TO LAUNDRY DETERGENT ANYWAY?. GOOFY, GOOFY GOOFY. OH YES, AND TRY SENDING THEM AN EMAIL. WHAT A HASSLE.

" NOTHING ON THE LABEL INDICATED IT TO CONTAIN COLORING,"

You mean, you need the laundry detergent that is free of dyes and perfume?

Tide is a good detergent for that.
madconsumer on 2010-02-08:
unless stated otherwise, one must figure they use a coloring agent.

as said, tide free is a good choice.
Anonymous on 2010-02-08:
I don't know of any laundry detergent that will tell you, on the label, that the liquid inside is going to be colored. You can always open it up, and look.
However, it will tell you, on the label, whether or not the liquid is free of dyes and perfumes.
Venice09 on 2010-02-08:
I don't understand the reason for coloring either, but like the others have said, unless the label specifically says "free of dyes and perfumes", you should assume the detergent has both those things.

I use Purex in the white bottle because it has no dye or perfume, and it's a bit cheaper than Tide. I don't need a heavy duty detergent because I don't have challenging laundry, so Purex is good enough for me. I think Cheer makes a similar product. The "free" detergents are usually in white bottles
PepperElf on 2010-02-08:
why not buy the stuff that's labeled as "dye free"
instead of just assuming

that way you won't go wrong
Anonymous on 2010-02-08:
I have an allergic reaction to certain detergents too. I have to avoic the ones that use fragrances, but never had a problem with the coloring. I always get the allergen free detergent. That's what you have to look for. The one I get is color free and odorless. I break out if I get regular detergent. Next time, just open up the top of the jug and look. It takes 5 seconds.
Lulubella on 2010-02-08:
Thanks for all the comments. Yes, I will open the container next time and check it. I guess I have just been fortunate in the past that none of the brands I purchased had any coloring added. As for P&G, I noticed after posting my complaint, they test products on live animals, so another reason I won't buy their products. There is a website www.boycottp&g.co that gives info about the testing they do if anyone is interested, along with a list of P&G products to boycott.
PepperElf on 2010-02-08:
why open the container first?

why not pick out the bottle that bears the label that says "no dyes" or "scent free"


can't really go wrong if you read the label first.


as for animal usage
1) http://www.pg.com/en_US/sustainability/point_of_view/animal_welfare.shtml

While they sat there (another story) waiting for the police to arrive, I explained the posted policy to them..I think bail was @ 1k plus their lawyer fees, time off from work etc...not my problem. Convicted of misdemeanor crimes, record as long as they live. Done that several times, never lost in court.

So, no... the whole adage of "you broke it, you bought it" doesn't always work all the time. Guess it depends on where you shop and who the manager is.

Guess I'm going to jail then, cuz I open bottles to smell them before I buy stuff... like shampoo or deodorant. It may say "cool breeze" but that doesn't necessarily describe what it smells like. And if I can't smell it through the bottle, I open the darn thing and take a whiff before I buy it.

Explanation: we have signs posted as required, usually there is no problem and the customer understands and at times we "forgive" them. In a few circumstances, the customer has become belligerent and combative. Some were attempting to shoplift, some were already tipsy, in which case, we would not sell to them anyway which po's them even more.

New Bounce Bounces All Over My Dryer
Posted by on
The New Bounce Stick on Fabric Cube you stick in your dryer and its supposed to last up to 4 months?? What a joke I put it in my dryer and within minutes of drying the very first load it came apart and got a chalky buildup all over my clothes had to rewash them several times just to get the fabric softener out of my clothes, also when I did buy the product from Wal-mart they had NO replacements for the product and said they didn't know when they would be getting some.

VERY VERY disappointed in this product, if anyone else has had a problem let me know...

Not Worth It
Posted by on
Do you know how the product from this company you use made it to the stores?
Well, first it went through many animal tests. Many UNNECESSARY animal tests. I came across a website which opened my eyes.

It is not the law to test on animals, and despite human volunteers, they continue to do animal tests that include stripping layers of skin, burning the eyes, making animals breathe intoxicated air until they die, removing dogs vocal cords - this is so they cannot bark when they are in pain. Any many more. It is cruel and monsters work.

I personally, refuse to have anything to do with any company that supports animal testing.

Whitening gel smells like nail polish remover
Posted by on
I purchased a box of Crest Night Effects whitening gel with applicator brushes at Wal-Mart 2 days ago. When I got home, I opened it and was completely turned off by the smell. It smelled exactly like nail polish remover. I looked at the ingredients and noticed that "ethyl acetate" was listed. My instinct was right. I looked on my bottle of Cutex Non-Acetone remover, and Ethyl Acetate was the 1st ingredient! I didn't even want to put this on my teeth! Gross! And the box claims that it won't harm teeth! I don't want to find out if it does or not.

I returned the box, granted it was opened, but unused, to Wal-Mart for a full refund.

You can not read the ingredients on Crest Night Effects gel because they are not on the outside of the box. They were listed on the inside tray.

Flute726 on 2008-02-11:
It was absolutely disgusting to see that something they advertise as "safe" has potentially harmful ingredients. I think if I buy whitening products again, I will stick with Listerine Whitening Strips. The make them so they can dissolve and I've read the ingredients (which they made readable on the outside, not the inside) and there were no potentially harmful ingredients.

Magic Eraser - Just Okay
Posted by on
MADISONVILLE, KENTUCKY -- Yesterday evening my youngest son managed to get his little mits on a black permanent marker. Three year old, permanent marker-need I say more.

I purchased these little Mr. Clean magic erasers about two weeks ago just for these situations. And I am not too overly impressed with them.

We had permanent marker all over the linoleum floor, the door to the garage and on the kick molding of our wall. I wet the product according to package directions and the first thing I noticed was that even though soaking wet it still managed to stay light and easy to use.

It worked wonderful getting off the marker from the door and kick molding. The only thing was you had to scrub extremely hard to get it off. The eraser itself became full of holes and was very worn after only 5 minutes of scrubbing. Not something I would have expected from a product they claim can be used over and over again. I barely got one use out of one eraser.

Now to the floors, I wet the second eraser in the package according to the directions and tried to scrub the marker off the linoleum. It did not work at all. It didn't even lighten the ink stain.

This product claims to be able to remove scuff marks and stains off of all surfaces, including linoleum. It did not take off the marker. We had a small scuff mark from my sons hot wheels and it did not get that up either.

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers have their good uses though. With some super duper scrubbing it did take off the marker from the walls, the kick molding, the door, and the refrigerator like it said it would. And I would recommend this product for someone who has a small scuff on their molding or doors.

The downside is that the product itself in my honest opinion is not intended for multiple uses as they claim. It falls apart very easily after prolonged periods of scrubbing. And at over 3.00 for two I would highly advise those with big jobs like mine not to waste your money on these. You will have more success with an acetone based nail polish remover and straight bleach.

Hugh_Jorgen on 2007-11-08:
One thing to be careful of is that these little sponges are also quite abrasive - it's not real obvious until the light hits your no-wax floor just right and you see that you scrubbed the shiny layer right off.

I asked my Mom why, and she told me that she thought it was so cute that she never had the heart to scrub it off.

I don't have the heart to scrub it off either, so I take pictures and send it to the family, and then scrub it off. That way we'll always have a copy of his creativity, as well as the great black mail pictures of them! I can't wait for their first dates. Bwahahaha!

DC, that is what I am talking about and it is scary when you think about how the rest of these idiots in Washington are right now. I have never in my life seen or read about a worst bunch of incompetent moronic collection of "Leaders" running this country.

God help us all!

"Permanent markers" are called that for a reason. The real downside of these cleaners is that some parents use them to clean marks off their kid's faces! They're really abrasive and can literally scrub off the delicate facial skin!

PWP, they are telling people not to use them on people now. Apparently there were a lot of dim bulbs who, as you said, used it on their kids. The texture of the things should have been a big tip-off that using it on flesh might not be a good idea. Thank you Princip, for your wonderful review.

I love the Magic Eraser. It does a really good job removing those pesky red wine rings on the stove.

Good review principissa!

Morning Steve, did you see anything on the news up there about the storm surge yesterday? They had some waves over 10'. It really went off yesterday, getting back to normal today.

I didn't,its supposed to storm all weekend,just in time to go check out the crazy huge waves at Mavericks(Half Moon Bay)
Its eerie out there,the water is dark,the waves are sometimes 20 feet overhead,and there is always that chance of sharks in the lineup.
I don't surf there,its too nuts.

Super,I put some pics of "the Wedge" on my blog.That place is insane!
MRM on 2007-11-08:
Cool waves, Steve! I wish I live out on the beach of CA so I can catch those big waves!

Steve, great pic's. I will try to find and post a couple I took there.

MRM, you should also know that this place is where the term "Wedgies" came from because when you missed the wave, you got one.

Lid's, the place is nuts. Sometimes the waves break right on the beach or in about 1' of water. When the Wedge is breaking big only well known body borders and surfers are allowed to go out and there is an ambulance there 24/7.

Super, We used to surf in waves like that after the hurricanes would pass. The water was always like glass and the waves could be up to 30' it was cool.
But that much water in only 1' of water? That's a bit much for me...

I'm actually putting a picture of some recent artwork with Crayola markers. Very cute.

I use these Erasers all the time...and in the past wrote a compliment review...It's true that it's mostly a one time user...but it is GREAT on stoves! I just wish it didn't crumble apart like it does...but then they used to have erasers that crumbled when used too, so maybe that's what they had in mind when they named the product...It's great for taking spider guts off the wall after I smudged the little critters five feet across the wall to make sure they're dead...I haven't found anything it hasn't worked on, but then again, I don't have any kids either...Good Post!

How does it work on porcelain tubs?
Principissa on 2007-11-08:
Gothic it got the soap scum off. I tried them on everything! I was just disappointed about the floor. They work great on lawn furniture too.

They didn't work on the Sharpie on my wall :( but great for all the pencil drawings and food handprints

Poor thing. You should probably have told your 3 yr old NO. That's what is wrong with society today. Permanent markers and 3 year olds, maybe read up on "permanent" ... it is defined very clearly. Wow.

great post...
I used to just put a picture frame around my kid's drawings till I got ready to paint again.
