WEAVER, ALABAMA -- I have used Procter & Gamble products for many years. I have always found them to work. Dawn dish liquid is the very best especially the new, hand renewal. It really works. My hands are softer than ever. Gain laundry detergent is the very best for removing stains. I have used gain since my son was a very young boy. He is now 46 & I am still using it I would not change using Procter & Gamble products for any one or anything.
TUPPERS PLAINS, OHIO -- I use Crest Night Effects Whitening Gel at least once a year. I drink 2 cups of coffee per day and get these disgusting brown lines on the edges of my teeth. Used as per the directions, the results are great! I have NO complaints about the effectiveness of this products. There is only 1 flaw that I can see, I can't find it in the store anymore.
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.
CINCINNATI, OHIO -- I have always used Tide. Lately, the last year or so, I have been getting blue spots on my clothes sometimes. I first thought it was dye from some other article of clothing, now I suspect it is Tide. When I really started noticing this, it was spotting where there may have been another stain, Kool-Aid, or dirt. I wrote to Tide and they said it was not their problem and maybe I was not washing clothes right. Well I have been washing clothes for 27 years. I think I'd know.
Any-hoo, others on the Tide website also complained their clothes were staining too. Still Tide denied it was their soap. Longer story short, I switched to Gain HE. No longer got stains. Then when Tide was on sale, I bought a jug, after a few months, and guess what? I have tiny blue stains. I do not think that is a coincidence. I will stop using Tide and stick with Gain. Gain also makes the laundry smell great.
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 cannot 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.
I have been using Luvs mostly because they were on sale. Got one of those cartons with something like 96 diapers. Size 4 - they fit my son fine. Went back to get more a couple weeks later and bought anther box of size 4. They looked awful small but even the diaper had a 4 marked on them. Compared it in size and it did seem smaller than the ones from the other package. They still seemed to fit but they leak badly overnight. Called the number on the box and explained. They said it seemed weird but they sent me a coupon for $20.00 to replace the box of diapers. Pretty cool.
Bought Crest Battery operated Spinbrush... After 4 weeks of using it the batteries went out and I asked my husband to change them... When he opened the battery chamber water and battery acid came out with two very corroded batteries... Had been feeling flu-like with sore throat and nausea for a week and after opening the toothbrush I knew what was wrong. Called the battery company and Procter & Gamble to notify them of this. Mouth started peeling within 3 days of not using the brush. Chest pains and headaches sent me to the emergency room where the doctor told me I had to have an endoscopy as the chest pains were probably being caused by the acid in my esophagus.
Procter & Gamble wrote me a sweet letter in the midst of this to tell me that it could not have been their most perfect product to have caused this. That all I ingested was rust and water. This was written to me without ANY investigation or sight of the toothbrush. I am furious and am currently writing to everyone about this as this defect could possibly happen to our children as this product is marketed heavily to them!! Buyer beware. Procter & Gamble will dismiss you as well should something like this should happen to you!!
KENILWORTH, NEW JERSEY -- Please be advised that I visited the Pampers.com web site numerous times between November 15th and January 15th trying to obtain a printable copy of this mail-in-certificate. At first, the certificate alone was not available. Soon after, there was a total disappearance of any information regarding Pampers perks at all.
At this point, I called the telephone number (1-866-4baby perks) and left my address for a form to be mailed to my home. This verbal request was made approximately 4 times. Needless to say, no form was ever received. I find the total blackout of communication between Pampers' customers and your company to be absolutely appalling.
I have saved these points for 2 1/2 years waiting to redeem them and the complete lack of availability to information regarding this program, especially in the last few weeks of the campaign, forces me to question the credibility of your company and the judgment of Procter and Gamble in selecting you to head this campaign. At the very least I would like a response from your company regarding this incident. Thank you for your time.
MELBOURNE, IOWA -- I recently learned the hard way that Febreze kills domestic birds due to zinc chloride being a key ingredient. There is no warning pertaining to domestic birds on this product. I have lost a valuable pet and a precious little fellow due to this company not recognizing how dangerous their product is to birds. I have been informed by several pet stores that they have written P&G pertaining to the increasing bird deaths and use of Febreze; however, P&G response has been there is no scientific proof.
