fine...call me a brand snob
our town has hard water. terribly hard water. it will do a number on your dishes as in leaving a film on them. the only thing i have found that combats it is cascade dishwasher detergent. i've used it ever since i came to the realization that no other detergent works nearly as well. like 12 years or more.
so why, in a moment of weakness did i buy a less expensive brand? why? to save a couple of bucks? well, yes. do i regret it? yes. most definitely. i'm nearly to the bottom of the less expensive brand and i can not wait to be done with it. so much so that i have been contemplating throwing it away all week just so i can get my clean and shiny dishes back. what's holding me back? well, the fact that it's like throwing money away. and the fact that no one else in the house has even noticed that the dishes don't look near as good as they used to.
so from now on, i'm going to consider myself a brand snob when it comes to dishwasher detergent. i'm only buying cascade. that's it. no bargain brands for me. i don't care how good the deal is.
i'm also a brand snob when it comes to diet coke. nothing else will do. i'm sure there are other things too but i'm not going to share too much for fear of what you might think of me.
