    Hello, everyone.
    I’m not normally on here, but reading through your posts, purchases prompted me to relate an incident that happened to me, just so you don’t make the mistake I did.

    I purchased a package of personal wipes…like those flushable Cottonelle wipes thinking the price was certainly better, so why not. I’ll skip the details of my pain and visit to our doctor just to say that had I waited, the infection would have gone septic and I would have been in much more serious internal pain and trouble than I was in. He said I was close to hospitalization. He put me on an intense antibiotic protocol, then extended prednisone. It was likely caused by the water used in preparing those cloths; I needn’t tell you where they were made. He informed the Health Unit.

    Suffice it to say, after that horrid experience, I no longer shop for anything from $stores that I have to apply to face nor body and that includes bath, shower, soap products from there. Having done a lot of reading (something like that does that to you), no phalates, parabens, artificial colours or smaller size products that sell for less. I wish I had been more diligent sooner, particularly for my family.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know what can happen…it sure scared the daylights out of me; I don’t want the same thing to happen to anyone else.

    Thanks for the warning.That's why I just stick with name brand stuff from dollar stores.I actually I read the back of the packaging on name brand products because sometimes no name companies license name brands.

    Oh, no! That sounds horrible! So sorry this happened to you. If we were in the US, you could probably sue them. Thanks for the warning. Hope you recover completely!

    Thank you, @GatineauGirl , yes completely recovered now, but it was a relatively long road….our Dr told me later I nearly went septic!! Now THAT WAS SCARY!!

    I won’t buy anything from there that goes on or in or near me!
    I hope my ordeal saves others from that pain.

    The tongs just look like the Betty Crocker red ones without feet!
    @Lynn49 Thanks for posting about the scary encounter with personal care items. I do buys soaps 3packs and single boxed ones at Dollarama because I don't want a bulk buy. However, since becoming fond of baby wipes, I have been looking for name brand ones on sale/clearance (at Shoppers or Fortinos or the surplus outlet store in town). I have noticed the many places of origin on personal care items sold at Dollar stores.

    I've never quite understood the popularity of dollar-stores. When I calculate them on per-pound basis, they are usually already as expensive (or more!) than the RCSS/Walmart offerings. Are folks just getting duped into thinking that they getting a bargain for less product?
