Some things, it just doesn't pay to buy cheap. I guess everyone has favourite brands of household products. With Addy, it was mayonnaise. If it wasn't Hellman's, she didn't want anything to do with it. Jim was fussy about shampoo (though, with all the hair he had, I can't see how it really mattered), and loved his Pantene.
With me, it's tooth glue. Some of y'all may not know, but I have plastic uppers. I've used pretty much every form of tooth glue on the market, and finally concluded that Fixodent is da bomb. Every so often, I get broke, or one of the off brands comes up with a new idea, and I try it. My latest adventure was caused by lack of funds. I am barely recovering from Christmas, and my trips to the store have been for necessities only. I bought a tube of Equate tooth glue. I confess. I was seduced by the fact that the stuff was about half the price of Fixodent.
Big mistake. It holds well for maybe 6 hours, as long as I don't put a lot of stress on it. No beef jerky, no caramels, no smoothies, or anything else that has to be sucked through a straw.
It's a good thing I gave up smoking.
I think this tube will be relegated to emergency stash, and I'm going to get some of the good stuff today.
