Products you stand behind

The Kitchen Aid thread got me thinking… what are some products/brands than you like to “stick with” ? Stuff that you know, no matter what you get, it’s going to be great, and the stuff that you buy from them regularly works every time. It can be anything, here’s what I came up with:

Bare Escentuals
Kitchen Aid
MMMMalabrigo :teehee:
OPI (nailpolish)

Anyway, that’s just off the top of my head, not necessarily a comphrensive list. What about you?

Dyson (as attested to by many lately!)
Reynold’s Wrap for tin foil
Saran Wrap for plastic wrap
Hellman’s mayo
Ruffles for ridged chips :slight_smile: lot’s of food related stuff here, huh?

Hmmm…Godiva is the first thing I thought of (course, I haven’t had chocolate since the beginning of Lent).

Clinique makeup (hardly ever wear the stuff, so not sure why I care)
Love my Dansko shoes
Clarks shoes
Adidas running shoes
Food : Heinz ketchup, quacker oats, Miracle Whip, Tropicana OJ, Lipton ice tea, Jiff Peanut Butter, Cracker Barrell cheese, Del Monte canned veggies just to name a few… I care more about the brand of food I and the dogs get than my clothes.
Most other brands have hybridized (I made up a word) themselves to the point that I cannot trust everything they make. Kitchen Aid does great stand mixers, but all their other gadgets are not as trustworthy (IMHO) same thing with John Deere, they make a kickbutt farm tractor but then sell their name to be used on smaller lawn tractors at Lowe’s that are not nearly as trustworthy.

Dansko shoes
Best Foods mayo
Diet Coke
Reynolds Heavy Duty foil
Skippy superchunk peanutbutter
Hershey’s chocolate
I’m sure that there are more, but that’s all I can think of right now.

Bare Escentuals :happydance:
Magic Eraser (removes anything that a toddler thinks to use on your walls)
Coca Cola
Lipton’s Green Tea
Clorox GreenWorks
Sock yarn :oo:
OPI (have you seen the new polish that looks like a pen? Cool.)
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Febreeze’s new candles you think that would be yucky…but they work…
McCall’s Tarts
Gain in the island scent
Dawn with the built in air freshner it works for a long time
Roomba irobot…
:teehee: I’ll stop for now…

Let’s see…

Amazing cosmetics (mineral foundation)
Essie nail polish
J. Crew t-shirts
Horizon milk
Ben and Jerry’s
Brown Cow yogurt
Soma underwear
Skippy Natural Peanut Butter
Scharfenberger (sp?) chocolate

I think I just made myself hungry. I gotta go…
Oh, and my Swiffer and magic erasers.


Kitchen Aid (since I started that thread! :teehee: )
Bare Escentuals
Crabtree and Evelyn
Charmin (no tree bark for me, thank you!)
Nestle Toll House choco chips
Bigelow Teas
Twinings Teas
Republic of Tea
Honest Tea
Shaklee cleaning products

I’m sure there are more, but this is a good start…cool thread!

I love Bare Escentuals!


Purell Hand Sanitizer
Lean Cuisine
Ben & Jerry’s

I must be the only person in the world that has tried Bare Escentuals and didn’t like it. I liked the coverage, but I didn’t like the little shiny bits in it. I think its called titanium oxide or something like that.
Anyway, Amazing Cosmetics mineral foundation is more matte.

Blue Lizard Sunscreen
Mr Clean
Gilligan & O’Malley (sleepwear, lingere, loungewear)
Roxy or Yellow Box (thong sandals)

These are tried and true

Mrs. Baird’s Bread
Crest Toothpaste
Vicks Vapor Rub
S.O.S Soap Pads
Crayola Crayons
Secret Deoderant
Bayer Asprin
Quaker Oatmeal
Folgers Coffee
Elmer’s Glue


Birkenstock (anything with the Kirkland label)
Costco coffee
Lands’ End
’Hospital’ type gloves for cutting up chicken
Darigold butter
Tillamook cheese
DC 9 jets
Olay Skin Care products
Skippy smooth peanut butter
Breadman bread machine
Cuisinart food processor
Kitchen Aid mixer
Kitchen Aid hand held mixer
Coach Bags (the older, the better)

Dawn (I really like the new bottles with the air freshener)
Tide/Downy, smells so yummy!
Kitchen Aide products
Martha Stewart kitchen stuff - it’s actually pretty good for me
Colgate toothpaste
John Freida hair products
Amazon for great deals!
Unimart-Convenience store coffee. Every bit as good as Starbucks and much cheaper… but only because I no longer work near a Starbucks, I had to find a substitute!
Lydia Marie’s Bath & Body Boutique soap - the cold process soap doesn’t dry my skin out and make it itchy
KH of course!
And this isn’t any brand, but I find that I much prefer to make my own spaghetti sauce, butter and whipped cream. The fresh taste is so much better than store bought. :slight_smile:

Sears Kenmore appliances
Craftsman tools
Lands’ End clothing
Boye needles

I am not much of a brand shopper otherwise.

[COLOR=red]Clarks shoes[/COLOR] (these are a dream to walk distances in I wear the sandals to Vegas every year)
[COLOR=red]Anything Lands End[/COLOR] (did you know that if you are disatisfied or they fall apart, they will take them back no ??? asked at anytime adn refund your money or give you new? I had a pair of their sandals I had them for months and months and the back strap broke. I emailed them about how I was disappointed in them and they sent me another pair free of charge. I didn’t even pay the shipping. I didn’t ask for anything just that I was disappointed in the product!)

[COLOR=red]Shout[/COLOR] (never had it not work!)

[COLOR=red]Sears Kenmore Microwave[/COLOR]. Had it for years and it still works fantastic.

[COLOR=red]Sears Craftsman[/COLOR] tools best tools ever IMHO

[COLOR=red]Kaboom[/COLOR]-takes off scum great. My husband is an electrician for the citie’s waste water treatment plant and gets this grime on the tub and this stuff makes it come right off

[COLOR=red]Benadryl [/COLOR](even the cheap store kind) best sleeping pill ever and no side effects my dr says you could take this everyday for the rest of your life and never be addicted nor it cause you any side effects or problems (this was his recommendation for sleeping problems instead of other sleeping pills I have taken it for years when I can’t sleep.)
