Products with Huge Followings that you Just Don't Get

Dr. Bronner's soap. The Whole Foods-shopping, granola types absolutely swear by it for nearly everything (bathing, mopping, dishes, laundry, etc.).

I've never liked it for household cleaning, because it always seemed like it left a film on everything it touched. Maybe my area's water supply is just too hard?

And I'm also not a fan of using it for bathing because no matter how much I diluted it, my privates always end up feeling irritated, which is strange because I do not have that problem with the so-called "harsh, unnatural" ordinary bar soaps (on top of that, shit feels like sulfuric acid when it gets in your eyes).

I even once tried bathing my dog with it, and she ended up with dandruff, so it's probably too harsh for her skin as well as mine (and I had used the unscented "Baby Mild" on her).

And judging by the labels on the bottles, Dr. Bronner himself is/was a bit of a loon.

Real maple syrup is much runnier than the imitation stuff (which is just high fructose corn syrup with brown food coloring and artificial flavoring), but it tastes 1000x better imo.

I have a speed queen. It’s a washer dryer unit with tumble wash, which is a very hard type of washer dryer unit to find nowadays. Most one piece units usually have agitator washers. I love it. It had a problem about 2 weeks ago and my husband dropped into a repair shop and showed them sometning and they said, “Oh, no biggie. Just do such and such. You don’t need a repairman for that.” And they were right.

I bought mine on the recommendation of someone who was in Afghanistan and the same unit was used by everyone to wash & dry their clothes. I figured if it could withstand military use in a war zone, it was ok with me.

I was using Notes on my phone & iPad and found my husband deleted everything I put in there, including my health history.

I went to Cracker Barrel once as a novelty. We were on the way home from a weekend trip and one was on the way. There was a line, it was packed and we waited and browsed the tacky store.

I ordered chicken and dumplings and it was singularly gross. I mean, I don't even mean like bad because I'm such a foodie. I'm not even using any standard except food should be edible. The chicken was obviously compressed chicken bits. The dumplings merged seamlessly into the sauce/soup(?). It was the first time I have ever had chicken and dumplings.

A few weeks later, I followed a recipe and made chicken and dumplings for the first time. Now I'm not saying it was Michelin-starred fare but it was pretty darn decent home cooking. What the hell are Cracker Barrel doing and why is their version so popular?

Also, pure lanolin is pretty good. It’s what’s in Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour cream. It’s a good barrier. Again, you have to work it in, it’s pretty thick, but it never stings raw chapped skin and works overnight on really dry skin.

R82 OP here, after my bad experiences with using Dr. Bronner's for most everything else, I still had a large amount left so I decided to try using it as hand wash. I put it in a foaming soap bottle and diluted it 1:4 with purified water.

Normally I don't need to use hand lotion after washing with other foaming hand soaps, but I did after washing with the Dr. Bronner's. If I didn't apply lotion, the soap left my cuticles dried out and even the surface of my fingernails would start peeling slightly. What can I say, guess my skin just hates the stuff.

Before anyone suggests it, I did try diluting it even more but as stated on their website, the more you dilute, the more often you need to replace the batch (because you're also diluting the preservatives in the soap).

I learned this the hard way when the watered-down soap in the foaming hand bottle started developing a weird-ass smell.

If any of the Bronner queens are interested, I still have about a quarter-bottle left of the citrus scent.

When Shake Shack opened here in LA a few years ago there were very vocal fans trying to convince me how wonderful and superior to In N Out it is. There were hours long lines to wait in when it first opened. All that buzz seems to have died off already and I never hear much about them now. I think they’re way overpriced and I hate their too soft buns that disintegrate a few bites in. And their fries aren’t anything special either. I’m not a big In N Out fan either but at least they’re affordable. If you’re willing to pay Shake Shack prices you’re better off going to Umami Burger or The Counter.

Since they don’t have In N Out Burgers where I live, I visited one on vacation in Texas because of hype I saw about it in comments on a YouTube video. (The video had nothing to do with INO, but the person had a cup in his cupholder and that started a flurry of comments.)

Wasn’t impressed and didn’t get the hype.

Same with CFA. They opened a location near me before I knew anything about them. The hype was crazy, so I looked online at their menu. Couldn’t see anything I would go for, so never went. Now I won’t go for other reasons anyway, but never intended to.

R151: The one things Starbucks nails is cold drinks, in particular, Iced Coffee, Iced Americanos and Cold Brew. And they use simple syrup as a sweetener in them while every other coffee place just dumps sugar into the drink that doesn't dissolve. It's like drinking a gritty ice drink...yuck.

I don't have any issue with using natural oils—I love jojoba, castor, and evening primrose oils, as well as shea and coconut butter—but coconut oil is just too, too heavy and non-water-soluble.

R143 if you want a great sunscreen, buy some Korean or Japanese products off of Amazon or eBay (just make sure the seller is highly rated so you don't end up with counterfeit shit).

The Korean and Japanese are obsessed with porcelain white skin, so you know they're on top of their game when it comes to sun protection.

As a matter of fact, in my experience all Korean and Japanese beauty/skincare products are superior in every way to what you find in the West. I'm honestly baffled at why/how our skincare products are so far behind in quality and innovation. Even when we try to imitate Asian beauty products (like their BB and CC creams), theirs are still superior. 🤔

Poland Spring 100% Natural Spring Water. It’s not even spring water, much less "natural".

I am with Tex at r271. That Whataburger is the biggest Nothing Burger I’ve ever had the displeasure of tasting.

I gave Whataburger three tries and it was awful each time.

What the hell, Texas?!

That's okay, because it surely applies to some Method products as well.

Based on someone's online description of Method's beach sage scent ("fresh, crisp, herbal" he said), I ordered both fabric softener and air freshener. To me, it smelled like that Axe shit that teenage boys drench themselves in.

On the other hand, I do like the scent of Method's eucalyptus-mint bathroom cleaner.

R242. There’s a solid argument for someone who doesn’t want smartphones. They’re expensive, not everyone wants or needs the features like email. Many people only want to use a phone as a phone. Many basic phones are free or low cost with either a subscription or pre-paid plan.

That’s pretty sensible if you’re on a fixed budget and want to keep your cost down to $5 (yes FIVE) a month.

by Anonymousreply 28904/18/2019

I don't like the way the Meyers products smell but they work very well. The Method products smell nice but they aren't effective cleaners.

r285 They haven't made PT Cruisers for years, so they can't have a "huge following." And SMART Cars are hardly popular either.

I'm not in on the Trader Joe's hate. I don't go there for unique or gourmet items as much as for reasonably priced, versions of many products.

On items like almonds or produce Trader Joe charges at least 25% less than any other store, and their version of prepared food will usually have no added msg or HFCS or chemical preservatives. The peanut butter will have nothing but peanuts and maybe salt, for example.

Also, nothing they sell is made in China, though I'm not sure that Thailand and Vietnam standards are better.

They had a liberal return policy where you can return any product just because you don't like it , but I don't know if that is still a thing.

Tesla cars. I am definitely pro-electric, but...these cars are holding us back. Terrible factory working conditions, pseudo-elite pricing and a revered but very flawed leader make these cars the Apple of electric vehicles. Blech.

I think they use too much essential oils in their products and I can't stand the scent of the products. A couple of years ago when I was on a work trip and one day she was cleaning with the sprays and it was so strong and awful.

by Anonymousreply 29904/19/2019

I am a fan of Mrs. Meyer's Basil-scented products. Love that scent. All the others can go to scent Hell. Too strong and sweet. And the fabric softener is a pointless waste of money. But damn, I love the basil hand wash and basil dish soap.

by Anonymousreply 30004/19/2019

I stayed at someone's house and they had a Mrs Meyers dish detergent that was gardenia or something like that. I can buy that for hand washing but it just seemed weird to me for washing dishes.

Of course my dish detergent has a scent so I'm not sure why it made me uncomfortable.

Alkaline water. A co-worker wanted to sell me a machine that made alkaline water for $5,000. She said she has more energy, feels great and her hair looks better. I said no, it was some kind of pyramid scheme. A couple of other people swore to me about alkaline water.

R296 - I have one and I loathe it. I've had people call me whilst in the loo, thinking nothing of forcing me to listen to them flushing. It has destroyed every vestige of personal boundaries in the civilised world. The incessant tinkling of arriving messages and texts makes me want to throw it against the wall, only I can't, because people simply refuse to communicate any other way.
