    Deals & Duds

    Have you ever wanted to try products or services that you were unsure of, or have you actually tried them and regretted it?
    Well, hopefully this is the place where we can all help each other out! What should we purchase and what would be a huge waste of money?
    Those are the questions...

    Whether it's some Get Rich Quick deal, a weight loss program, some "AS SEEN ON TV" thinga madoodle, something you bought on a home shopping channel, something purchased from an infomercial or just from a regular TV ad... I could probably speak for all when I say we could all use the advise sometimes, and it would sure be nice to get it if we can.

    Would the purchase suit our needs, be too expensive, worth the money, not worth the money or be just a plain "old fashioned Rip-Off?"
    Please share your info about various products and services and either praise them or warns us all to take cover!!

    This idea for a thread actually started today... I ordered a "Free!" CD about "Transforming Debt into Wealth."
    Yeah, yeah, I hear all ya'll sayin' "Sucker!" Hey, it was "Free!"
    Anywho, I finally have time to listen to this CD after all this time, and I put it on....nothing there, nada, it doesn't play...
    The CD not working might be a Red flag, ya think?

    Now, what I would like to know is, do any of you know about the program on the CD?
    I would like to know what my Free CD couldn't/wouldn't tell me and if it's a Deal or A Dud!

    Here's the link to the webpage that I did a "Google" on.
    Debt elimination and Transforming Debt Into Wealth with John Cummuta


    My Deal recommendation: The Swiffer Wet Jet Mop! I love it!!
    I've had it over a year and it still works just as well as it did when I bought it. btw, the cleaner (smells so good) and with the cleaning pads you really do have that clean mop for every room! IMO it's not that pricey, although it could be to some. I'm basing my opinion on the results you get in return which is money well spent. Check your local Wally World for prices.

    Thanks in advance and please post Deals & Duds here!

    Re: FORTers' consumer reports

    I'm looking for something along the lines of a Swiffer Sweep and Vac, but not a Swiffer Sweep and Vac, . I have one of those, and loved it for the first six months or so, but now I cannot shut it off, so I have to let the battery run down. That's loud and inconvenient.

    I need something very light weight that I can use daily for a quick run over hardwood and granite floors that have become covered with cat hair in the last 24 hours. I'd prefer something bagless.

    I have a wonderful full size vacuum (Dyson Animal), but I hate to drag that around every day, so I'm wanting something to just do a quick job, and that will stand up for more than six months.

Even days later, our sheets still smell wonderful, and as a bonus the laundry room does too.

    I used these after all the high recommendations on here. I tried the one in the pink bottle and I absolutely love it. I love the way my clothes smell after being washed and dried in this stuff. Great recommendation FORTers!

    I did too. I got the lavender/vanilla and it smells terrific. The whole house smells great when I wash clothes now.

    My boyfriend washed a load of laundry at my house a few weeks ago... complaining the whole time about the "sweet" smelling detergent. (Pink bottle Tide - can't remember what scent it is...) After he took his clothes home, I never heard another word from him about it. Then this past weekend I was doing laundry at his place, and lo and behold, there on the shelf was a pink bottle of Tide... I guess even boys like to smell good, though they may have a hard time coming to terms with that!

    I broke out in a rash when I tried one of them. No fancy scented Tide for me.

    MT, I have no recommendations for you, but I'm sure someone here will.

There are other brands, but our local stores don't sell them. I also cannot find the really large boxes or bottles anywhere. You can use the regular ones, but that defeats the purpose of whole machine, as it supposed to save on water and the regular soaps need more rinsing time.
    Wait...what? Are you saying the front loading machines need special detergent? Wow, am I out of the loop.

    Star, I'm sorry you have delicate skin, and can't use these detergents.

    RG, it's hilarious your boyfriend griped, then went out and bought it, too.

    Re: FORTers' consumer reports

    roseskid - There is HE detergent for front loading machines. However, the only difference is that it's a less sudsing version. If you use regular detergent but use about half what you would for a top loading machine, you'll be fine. (A very useful hint given to me by my SIL when I got my front loader.)
