Smelly plastic. Hubby bought two Red Noses yesterday. We had to take them out of the packaging to air because they smell so much that you wouldn't want to wear them. The keyring he bought for me isn't much better.

I know that noses smell, but this is ridiculous!

So that's why the Red Noses have feet - so they can run as well as smell!smiley - winkeyesmiley - tongueout

PH – not being able to pick your nose – you don't know what you've got until you buy it. We bought 5 and there's ten to collect, and got three gnomes and two jesters.

I second the PH of smelly plastic - last week there was a box of magazines wrapped in cellophane in a room at work, and I couldn't go in there until the window was opened because the smell was so strong!

I'd not seen the newfangled Red Noses before but I was surprised by the smell as well - not quite as pungent as the magazines but I could certainly smell that they were in the room...

Sho - gainfully employed again

Bluebottle - I'd not bother buying any then - that's just annoying.

My kids love the noses as they're the right size to fit the Sylvannian Families house and cars so they want to collect them all.

My pet hate is having a dry itchy scalp which no medicated shampoo can treat. I have had since I was 4 years of age or younger. I have tried all sorts of dermatitis shampoos but nothing works.

Try not shampooing.

Shampoo strips your hair and scalp of healthy oils along with the dirt.

I've dealt with greasy hair and dandruff since childhood until I went to the no shampoo method.

I use baking soda and water for cleaning daily, and I spray on and rinse out diluted apple cider vinegar a few times a week for conditioning.

The first month or so can be a bit... gnarly, but after that, my hair has never felt better.

You can find lots of info on the interwebs, by searching for either "shampoo free" or "no poo method". You'll also find videos from folks that have gone "poo free".


I highly recommend it. (Just don't give up those first several weeks while your hair readjusts.)
