Wash and go

I’ve officially given up shampoo. It’s a load of nonsense, the short n’ curlies have been doing just fine with shower gel for all this time and they’re in much better condition than my head. So that’s it; sayonara shampoo.

I don’t know why we need so many different cleaning products. Scam central. We should just have one big bottle of stuff for cleaning us and one big tub of chemicals for cleaning the house. Ok maybe something a bit milder for wood surfaces – but do we really need a different spray for the kitchen and the jacks!? Of course not it’s a scam. Do you need one bottle of stuff for the sink and another for the shower? No you fucking don’t! So I put it to you; unless you have long flowing golden locks, do you really need shampoo? I don’t. I just wash, and go!

I know what you’re thinking; I should join Beat.ie with this wealth of knowledge. Maybe if they ask nicely.

And another thing. D’you know cat litter isn’t just grit? It contains compounds like Calcium bentonite specifically designed to soak up urine and then go hard.Yet one of the most popular brands, Thomas, doesn’t seem to do this at all, it just seems like a bag of gravel to me! And that’s the brand that’s in every single shop. That’s marketing for you. Get the really cheap stuff in the like of Lidl, it’s the proper stuff.

    yeah, but the johnsons baby shampoo allows me to open my eyes and let the soapy suds wash in my retinas and I feel like a superhero with special powers, I’ve said too much.

    As for the catlit, on the few occasions when I am forced to keep the cats in I buy those wood type deelys. They soak that urine up real good.

    I love just how uncalled for this post was.

    Domestos for everything!

    Brilliant stuff. Love your thinking – and of course you are right. We don’t need all the different types of cleaning product but we could also so the same about so many different varieties of — oh I don’t know let me think – yoghurt. Remember when it was Yoplait in the cardboard carton-of-roundy-pyramid shape? Now we have night time yoghurt, meditation yoghurt, yoghurt for prebiotic probiotic menopausal bloaty types.

    Ah the religion of consumerism – it brings us such wonders doesn’t it.

    I realise there may be a proper name for the “roundy pyramid shape” I speak of – but I don’t know what that is.

    Thing is Red I believe every word of it!

    xbox I think all my posts are completely uncalled for!

    Thanks AJ. Oh I loved those old yoplait yoghurts. I’m a total yoghurt addict.

    Annie, sorry I’ll open a window.
