I haven’t had any problem with dollar store products. Smaller sizes usually. Sometimes the cleaners are a little weaker, but then some of them are stronger. [the la awesome products are concentrates]. Batteries are useless. But personal care products seem fine. deoderant, toothpaste, talc etc, all fine. There’s not many ingredients in those things for anyone to screw them up. It’s just that we’re used to getting ripped off elsewhere.
