I don't know if it's the absolute worst... but I would discourage anyone from buying baby wipes from a dollar store! I work at one, and shop at others also for many things... but baby wipes are not something to buy from a dollar store lol. Super thin, takes a million to wipe up a mess.

recently for me I gotta say the new pampers dry max diapers.
both my kids were pampers babies and now I won't recommend then to my worst enemy.
They gave my son a terrible rash and they don't seem to absorb any more...infact a hell of alot less. about an hour after every bum change he would be drooping and the outside would feel damp.
My son is now wearing store brand diapers for half the price and are alot better.
I don't know if this is the *worst* but I'm so aggravated right now that I'm going to say it anyway.
We bought a brand new Samsung tv less than two years ago. On Sunday it wouldn't turn on. Jason is good at fixing things so he took it apart and didn't see anything wrong with it. We brought it in to our local tv repair shop. We were told that Samsung used to be a good brand but in recent years it has really gone downhill. UGH!! Wish we'd have know that two years ago. We bought Samsung because it has always been reliable. Now it's not. Time to subscribe to Consumer Reports.
We find out tomorrow if its even worth fixing or if we should just buy a new tv. I'll keep you posted.

I just bought a jumbo boy of Super Store brand wipes - It was only $9.00 on sale. It has 8 refills and I'm not a big fan. They are very thick but kind of dry and kind of rough. Now I'm stuck with all these wipe I don't want to use : (

I have seen recipes but to be honest, making my own won't happen. I've used pampers and I find them really soapy. Maybe I just got a bad box? The Shoppers drug mart ones are pretty good but really expensive. We just buy w/e is on sale.

Haha! I personally love Huggies, but I know a lot of people that like both Huggies and Pampers and some that like neither. Have you tried making your own? I read on here somewhere a recipe that you can use to make your own with paper towels and stuff, but you have to keep them in a cool place so they don't get moldy :/

Oh, that comment (Cynthia's) makes me remember once upon a time when my MIL bought me a Hiney-load of Kirkland wipes.. With good intentions, so I can't be too angry. But let's just say more than once they slid out from under my hand during doodie diaper duty (lol, couldn't resist.. Sorry). Well, yeah.. I wasn't happy and my hubby wasn't there yet, so he had a blast laughing his butt off while we were on the phone telling each other about our day.. Those were the days..
I was able to get an AirWick free after coupons and a store sale so I thought I'd give it a shot. It makes the house smell good. We have it set to go off every 90 minutes because the scent is strong. We didn't want it to go off when we moved so I don't know about the motion sensor. I was able to get refills for pretty cheap, but if I can't find them on sale or with a coupon again, I won't bother. Candles can do the same thing!
Okay. Update on my TV.
The repair shop called this morning and it's going to be about $200 to fix it. That includes parts and labor. It should be ready tomorrow. We said okay. I hope its worth it and we don't have to end up buying a new one after all this!

Thanks, Katarina! I was actually thinking about buying that one (Air Wick motion sensor). I don't think I'm going to be wasting my money on it now.
My husband was the same way with his XBox.. And he's bringing it with him when he comes home so his brother can "fix it".. That better be the only time it comes out b/c I haven't seen him in almost 9 whole months..
Let's see.. I'm going to have to say.. Loreal Go 360 Clean. Oh my gosh.. I originally bought the one for sensitive skin (Deep Facial Cleanser for sensitive skin), not realizing that it's NOT oil-free.. Made me break out a lot. So I bought the green cleanser (Deep Facial Cleanser) and that, too, made me break out a lot! Initially, my face got really dry with both cleansers, but within an hour after using them, my face felt like an oil slick! I've never had bad acne in my entire life, it's always been just a blemish here and a blemish there.. But this was making me break out everywhere. I do not recommend.
For those military wives (if there are any on here yet :) .. The Exchange brand diapers. The wipes are decent, but the diapers are awful IMO. They leaked everywhere, no matter how often I changed my son. Bad experience all around.
And as much as I love Febreeze and the variety of scents they have for their air fresheners.. I'm going to have to say their air fresheners. I hated when I would clean my bathroom and someone would go in there and use the air freshener we had (we had Moroccan Bazaar.. OMG I LOVE that fragrance) and it would leave a film on my freshly cleaned counters and floor! And then if you didn't wipe it up right away, it would dry and feel really gross and kind of sticky when you walked on it. That was disappointing b/c I absolutely love Febreeze.. Just wish it didn't leave a film.

The Air Wick motion sensor. It's beyond terrible and doesn't work. We tried different batteries, different locations and walking passed it 10 times, still doesn't work! It only works if you press the button for "extra freshness"

I hate it when that happens, things just don't seem to last these days. I bought an Asus laptop and I am always having problems with things, certain letters stop working all of the time, the screen glitches at times, the mouse pad refuses to work sometimes, very annoying, I have taken it back but it's out of warranty now which sucks, so if I ever make lots of spelling errors it's possibly because my bloody computer won't let me use the letters I want!!
