Man, Amazon is so bad for the environment and so bad for workers. It’s cool to get a lot of consumer crap for cheap, but Amazon is not good!! Always felt a little weird about how much boing boing advertises amazon deals.

I wish people would just call this melamine foam.

You don’t call tissues “generic Kleenex.”


#4

However, I do use the phrase “store-brand Aspirin”.

For that matter, I’m fairly certain I’ve said “store-brand Kleenex” before, as well.

What kind of credulous fool would actually call them “facial tissues”, anyway?


#5

I just call them “tissues.” The stuff for your butt is “tissue paper.”


#6

“Tissue paper” is for stuffing into “gift bags” at the last minute before you leave on Xmas vacation. You nerf-herder!

I just bought 100 off eBay for $4.90: http://www.ebay.com/itm/262044357477?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

This! This will allow me to destroy Hogwarts and finally show my parents I’m better than that loser Voldemort!

Read the instructions if you use these things. First time I tried one on a mark on my wall I just rubbed with it dry. Not only didn’t it do diddly squat but the I figure the toxic-smelling dust took a few years off my life.


#11

I figured there had to be some butt patterned tissue paper but my google-fu failed. However what was interesting is that a simple search for tissue paper brought up the stuff for gift bags but as soon as the word butt enters the search in any manner it becomes a selection of wiping your rear end (or butt shaped dispensers for tissues)

Because it blocks our view of Jupiter.

I bought a hundred pack for $7 from a direct-from-China web store. I have used a dozen or so thus far, with pretty good results. Would the branded ones have lasted longer? Possibly, even probably. But given that you pay something like $5 for a two-pack, I can use two dozen of the cheaper ones and still come out ahead.

I bought some last time they were recommended here and they were terrible. They just crumbled away.

I have found the Safeway brand ones to work just as well and for less than half the price of Mr. Clean. I will get those instead these days.
I have yet to try the bulk ones. I saw some in the Daiso store and was tempted to get them just to try them for $1.50.

  1. LOVE Daiso. Just this weekend I discovered that they now have a store practically in our neighborhood. Yippee!
  2. I actually bought the uncut two-foot (or so) block of melamine sponges this weekend, cut off a small one, and tried it out. So far, so awesome - and, as you mentioned, just $1.50.
