Tastes/smells like it's working
« on: March 02, 2021, 11:21:32 PM »
- No the standard Colgate white clag, but that blue gel stuff with the retro mint flavour that some shite old brands still offer. Tastes like it's working more. Know what I mean...?

Plenty more like this, great thread in the offing

Big shampoo, made with sea salt. Literally makes your hair squeak with cleanliness as you scrub it over your head. Too expensive to be a regular thing but it's quite an experience, makes your loaf smell like a margarita afterwards too.

Aesop hand-wash, amazing smell and lasts for month if a bit pricey.

Chlorine - Doesn't matter that you're in a swimming pool full of kids pissing themselves. The chlorine kills all the worst germs.

Colgate tastes disgusting. As far as I can see it's never one of the ones with a British Dental Board recommendation on the box. Something to do with it having 'By Royal Appointment' on it, or is it just shit?

Oral B toothpaste has got a nice medicinal taste. Makes me want to rip off my mask and talk like Marilyn Monroe.

What happened to Dentyne Chewing Gum?

That's all from me for now.

Bleach. Not the lemon fresh nonsense or the ocean scented rubbish, proper bleach. The clear, thick, strong, chlorine-like bastard that chokes your throat and burns your nasal hairs. BLEACH!!!

Both toothpaste and fairy liquid have foaming agents added just to give you the 'mugs eyefull'. The stuff dentists use have the cleaning stuff without the foam so they can see what they're doing, same with dishwashers.

Is foam part of the process of cleaning though; I mean I understand you don't need foam for bleaching or anti-bac properties but I thought soaps "bubbling" was part of how it separates grease and binds water to dirt.

Sensodyne Pronamel. Makes other toothpastes taste like sweets.

Tried Lidl's toothpaste. You presume all toothpastes are basically the same, but this was horrible. Barely any mint taste and my teeth felt just as plaquey as when I started. Binned.

It's particular to the UK (probably not just the UK) where they market toothpastes with tastes like minty sweets. The same brands will have a medical taste in Germany because those flavours tell you it's doing its job. Whatever sells best.

EUTHYMOL is the one true toothpaste. Dig that Edwardian branding. It's pink and tastes like disinfectant. None of that flouride nonsense. This is what Virginia Woolf's mouth must've tasted like.

I think the dentists not on the payroll of big toothpaste generally have the consensus of "I don't care what toothpaste, just brush your fucking teeth".

Hand sanitizers in these covid times. The ones with aloe vera or something, so it smells better/doesn't feel as caustic? Get rid of. I want it burning my hands clean, smelling like a desperate booze man's face.

My mate uses that stuff, it’s foul. Have to bring our own toothpaste if we stay in his spare room.

I’m all for being kooky, but there are limits.

I'm not a fan of mint flavouring. Has anyone had a non minty toothpaste before? I tried one once and it was like brushing your teeth with a fishermans friend picked out the dirt.

I got a hand gel thing from M&S as it had a key chain attachment. Smells exactly like rum. I expect it perhaps once was cheap rum.

Sounds like our old friend Euthymol:

I bought a gallon of this cheap hand soap, mainly to cut waste on chucking out little bottles. It's the same as the shit they dump in a lot of office soap pumps:


It reminds me of pooing on the clock.

Has anyone tried that weird 'German engineering. For your hair!' stuff with caffeine in it for some reason?

Should I put some nescafe in my hair?

Vikki Butler-Henderson does the voiceover on those caffeine shampoo ads and she's got a lovely full head of hair. Can't argue with the evidence.

We’ve ended up being a Dr Bronners household even though it smells like herbal tea and bleach.

The bottle has the soap to water ratio to use it on the car so that’s something.
