Then things changed, and I used Soft & Dri (sp ?) gel stick successfully for a long time. And after that, I moved on to Degree, which worked well until either it changed or I couldn't find it at WalMart.
Right now I'm just satisfied with slopping on some MoM. Not quite as neat and handy as a spray or stick, but it works just great, and I feel like I'm avoiding a lot of chemicals in the process. Magnesium and purified water--what's not to like?
Thanks for responding, Jill. That way, I know at least someone doesn't consider me a total basket case.
