    Ok .. this may seem rather silly, but this is what the AFTER HOURS LOUNGE is for [​IMG]
    I was thinking this morning while I was cleaning my ears, that while I have tried other, cheaper alternatives to the Original Q-Tip Swabs ... I would never buy anything else but Q-Tip Swabs. They have the most cotton and are the safest ... IMHO [​IMG]
    Is there anything in your world that you would never substitute with a cheaper, hipper alternative ...ever???

    Toilet paper. I demand quality in my tp. I want a super strong two ply paper. I really hate the mid-wipe finger poke thru. [​IMG]

    Toothpaste: Mentadent. I mean, it has blue and white. How can you beat that?

    Root Beer: IBC. Any other popular root beer tastes like rotten Dr Pepper.

    I agree about the Q-Tips.

    I agree about Q-tips, but not because of the cotton. Their stick is much firmer than the flimsy plastic ones you find on competing brands.

    Other items I would not substitute:

    Reddi-Wip

    Calvin Klein briefs
