FLUSTER: Overpriced Laundry Products
If your someone who pays to have your laundry cleaned then there is no need to read further. This is for those of us that do the laundry ourselves and are annoyed with the high cost of laundry products.
If you’ve ever wondered why laundry products are so expensive, I can tell you it’s NOT the ingredients. Most of the commercial cleaners use common household products. Take a look at the label, it may be the scientific term, but google it and you’ll see what I mean.
What are we paying for? It’s a few different things and none of them really benefit us! The first big reason is how much CEO’s of these companies are being paid, it’s ridiculous. Then there’s the packaging, you know that cool container with the bright colored label that you just have to have. Let’s not forget the advertising, they pay a lot of money to come up with those catchy slogans that you can’t get out of your head. Finally there’s the convenience, I guess that does benefit us but not as much as you might think.
