Well done that boy! My very first steam cleaner was a hand held Poltii from Le Q and it encouraged me to go for a larger one - not from Polti but from Argos. Fabulous for cleaning the kitchen, especially the fridge freezer.
It's the wrong way round for starters - clockwise with the door at about 8 o'clock and I'm accustomed to two other branches that are anti-clockwise with the doors at 4 o'clock - and it's minute.
Very misleading from outside - looks large and bright but it's not and there is NO make-up or skincare at all. No plasters, just a couple of tubes of toothpaste, no fabric softener and, more importantly, no empty shelves. So where is the stock, I wonder?
I am not happy with ours either. We were there yesterday and the beauty section is so small now. No facial wipes and they have cut down on almost everything else too. The 'Expert' skincare is down to the night cream only and they are supposed to be regular stock items. I have a couple of the day creams but it looks as though I won't be getting any more. I like the night cream but have gone off the day cream and had decided that I would not buy it again. Just as well really!
I do occasionally nip over to Aldi, because I'm a mule for the caviar cream for my friends But I have to say that Lidl's fruit and veg is better, and ours has a bakery too. Aldi's Stevia sweeteners (which I'm also a mule for) are fantastic value, as is their Italian ham.
We've got two large Lidl stores here and that's where I do my week's shopping. Their fresh produce is fantastic. I also bulk buy their uncooked meat every few months and freeze it. It works out at half the price of the packs I used to buy at Asda.
Our 'local' Aldi is five miles away (as oppposed to less than a mile for either of the Lidl stores) and I went in there once, as it's opposite Matalan where I'd been shopping. I wasn't that impressed with it and so won't bother shopping there again.
