Wow! Great deals! I usually don’t buy the Sunday paper, but I wonder if I can find some of these coupons on the internet?

I am still using Mitchum however believe it was more effective and better when the label read “SO EFFECTIVE YOU COULD EVEN SKIP A DAY.” The scents (I prefer unscented myself) are improved though.

I called the company when they dropped the tagline and was told that it was because of a recent change in the formulation. Of course it could’ve been a custodian I was talking to and just messing with me.
