    Yes I realise that, the point I was making was that the larger packs were previously being sold for £1, £1.25 maximum.

    Not rude at all, just saying that if you can't expect people to understand the point you're trying to make if you omit a fundamental piece of information.

    If people explain their point clearly, giving all relevant facts, others will be able to understand and appreciate their point and no-one will need to get upset about being mis-understood

    I have never put in the recommended amount in. Live in a hardish water area. One time I put a dot on the side of a bottle every time I used some of the liquid for a washing load. I got 43 loads from a 25 wash bottle. If you live in an area with softer water, you probably got 5-7 more washes out of it.

    All my washing comes out clean and fresh. The manufacturers put a recommended amount in so you use and buy more

    What really grinds my gears is the weight of the packaging being included in the weight of the product. For example, I would expect a 1kg tub of yoghurt to provide me with 4 x 250g portions. Not any more, today I got 3 x 250g portions and then a 215g portion, in a 50g tub. If I'm buying a 1kg tub of yoghurt, I actually want 1kg of yoghurt

    There's one thing I hate more than having a dirty botty, is having less wipes to clean a dirty botty.

    Aptamil Formula Shrinkage
    I recently went to my local Tesco to buy the Aptamil folly on milk 2 and noticed that the packaging looked slightly different. On closer inspection, I discovered that the quantity had reduced from 900g to 800g but the price was virtually still the same. There has been a 15p reduction in price, from £11 to £10.85. Quite frankly I’d rather pay the extra 15p for the 100g they’ve taken off. I think the makers, Nutricia I believe are taking advantage of parents who have no choice but to buy the product. Simply outrageous.

    As this thread has already deviated considerably from food, I am posting about Poundland's plastic hair clamps. They used to sell six in a pack, then three, and now just two.

    Sometimes products that have been selling in the market to apply this is of course very harmful
