Due to economic circumstances beyond our control, me and the missus have been doing a lot more bargain hunting when shopping day rolls around. And the 99 cent store has been our friend. We’re discovering that you can pick up a lot of the exact same stuff that’s at Ralph’s and Von’s–even some of the same brands of produce. Believe it or not, they’re still bound by the same health codes! Other non-food items, like cleaning supplies and kitchen doodads, have just as much plastic and soap in them as normal items from normal stores.
Anyway, today when I was washing dishes, I looked at my bottle of cheap-assed soap, which works pretty good but has the no-name brand of “Rinso.” I realized that on the label, it says “Since 1910,” and I’m thinking, what the fuck, is that true?
Turns out that Rinso has been popular for years, just in other countries. God, it’s weird to see Australians freak out about soap!
