    Fairy liquid beats all the others, even Persil which is worse than supermarket own brands!
    I insist on Heinz tomato ketchup, salad cream & tomato soup but I don't mind cheaper baked beans :D

    Heinz ketchup. Nothing compares! (Have tried every one going)

    Fairy liquid- its a family rule that nothing else is worth trying (plus I have eczema so cheap stuff would aggravate that)

    Warburtons white bread- the one in the waxy packaging. It stays so fresh.

    Colmans tartare sauce and horseradish, they aren't that much more than own brand but you can really taste the difference!

    My parents refuse to drink anything bar PG Tips, so when my o/h decided to try value teabags they were horrified and had water!! He has since admitted they were awful lol

    Own brand washing up gloves :D

    I've found that Skechers trainers are much comfier and longer lasting than any other trainers I've ever worn.

    Even better when I can get them from the local wholesaler for £25 instead of £50 :D

    Have to say Fairy Liquid is much the best washing up liquid on the market, a bottle lasts ages and it always gives good results. Also very handy for removing greasy/oily residue, emulsion paint etc. from hands.

    Must also put in a word for Taylors Yorkshire Gold tea bags - great flavour and one bag is strong enough to make at least two cups/mugs worth of tea in a pot.

    I use Woolite for "delicates/woollens" wash in the machine, gives good results and a bottle lasts quite a while (and it doesn't stink like a lot of washing powders/liquids do). Vanish bars (cheaper than the sticks) are also good for dealing with grubby shirt collars/cuffs and greasy stains prior to putting clothes in the machine.

    Vanish carpet foam - really excellent results and it does what it says on the tin. Good for spills (tea, coffee, even Ribena, ground in chocolate) and removing all traces of cat sick. You can use it on upholstery too.
  • Morrisons PURE concentrate fabric conditioner. Really makes clothes soft. Only need a small capful. Definately value for money.

    Lidl swiss style muesli. Only £0.99 a box and tastes better than Alpen!
  • Always sanitary towels
    Lenor fabric softener
    Ariel washing powder
    Michim deordourant
    Dove soap
    Clover spread
    Heinz tomatoe sauce
    Kellogs conrnflakes

    Anything else I'll go with whatever is on offer but I WILL NOT compromise on these as I find them miles better than any other similar products.

  • Tescos Whitening Toothpaste £1.09 for large tube is as good as other much dearer brands...was surprised about this, but it is true....just bought 3 tubes for price of 2 as well this good job I am pleased with it...
