    What products do you miss? 23rd Jan 14 at 5:26 PM
    I was wondering if there were any products you just can't get anymore and you miss? Maybe they don't make them anymore, or you just can't find them - other people might be able to tell you where you can. Could be anything - food, cleaning products, whatever.

    Herbal essences spray hair gel.

    The most fantastic-smelling stuff to use for dance shows and ballet exams instead of that cheap, nasty neon hair gel stuff in a tub that you get in barber shops!

    I have see boxes of soap flakes going for over 250 a box on line I have still got a couple of boxes that I use for woolies. Maybe I should sell what I have at that price

    From the 60s - Birds Eye frozen chocolate mousse. An occasional treat, not defrosted but eaten straight from the freezer as a super-indulgent chocolate icecream!

    Plus my granny's gas-fired cast iron griddle - pre-war (if not older). When she came to live with us the griddle came too, and as she was a baker or a cook-housekeeper all her working life there was a constant supply of fresh soda bread! Bought from a shop, or even made in the oven, never tasted quite the same.....

    Not at all money saving, so my wallet (and waist) are thrilled, but I loved the raspberry and white & plain chocolate biscuits M&S used to sell. They also used to do a lemon meringue biscuit which not enough other people liked.

    I miss my Clarins habit. Far too expensive so moved onto Olay 7 effects stuff, still pricey. So I'm now using coconut oil and super drugs own brand serum and moistisers. Under 2 a bottle, lasts for ages too!

    I have tried for so long to find Old fashioned Mansion polish as all the sprays Do not smell that nice and leave sears that take a lot of elbow grease to rub off.
    I do hope someone knows where I can get it.
    Thanks Drinda (80 + just in case you think I am old fashioned.)

    White pantyhose/tights!

    Where the hades did they go? I need them for work. I've got six unopened pairs and six years to retirement. I'd better be careful and not run them.

    Frozen lemon mousse. Came in a block like ice cream. Mixed up with a crushed Crunchie bar it was a winner.

    The answer to all ills, bites, cuts and scrapes in my childhood was a savlon bath, but often pronounced to rhyme with "Avalon"
