Brands to consider

For those interested, a complete list of Proctor and Gamble brands can be found here.

I made a list of products we do or have used, and was surprised at the extent of it.

Always
Bounce
Bounty
Braun
Cascade
Charmin
Crest
Dawn
Downy
Febreze
Gillette
Head and Shoulders
Ivory
Olay
Old Spice
Oral-B
Pantene
Prilosec
Puffs
Scope
Secret
Tampax
Tide
Vicks

There are many, many more.  And many, many alternatives.

For me the toughest ones to give up are Tide (I do the laundry, and Tide is superior) and Old Spice (used it for over 5o years, though it’s not what it used to be).

Ah well, it’s a PITA, but Persil works as well as Tide, and I can always find some Bay Rum somewhere.

  1. Thank you. Dawn is toughest for me. It’s good for cleaning gas and oil stains. Gillete is easiest; that company (now brand) is the poster boy for what is wrong with corporatism. Plus Buffett owned it.

    1. I agree Dawn is a great grease cutter. It was our exclusive dish soap.

      I’ve found the Kirkland dish liquid a less expensive and equally competent substitute for grease and oil duties. You could also check out Pine-Sol.

      I find Shout, liberally applied and left to soak for 10 minutes best for washing machine duties.
