I've just started using a new tin of Brasso Wadding and I'm sure that it is not as good as the old tin. Is it just me or has anyone else thought the same?

Its not just Brasso I think ... if you look across the whole world of goods, they are all getting smaller and/or of a lesser quality while the price either stays the same or goes up ... manufactured profit .. just because they can ...

At least I'm not the only person to be disappointed with my shopping.

Can a Mod move this please? As far as I can see it hasn't got a lot to do with American Airborne?

Cheers,
Chris.

I've used peek for years. Brasso went rubbish years ago.
