Blimey!

The only thing you missed out was the location.

I'm guessing it was on The Waltzers at the local fair?

I have tried Boots, Erasmic and Palmolive and my favourite is Palmolive . . . by a country mile.

Not only does it have a nice scent, it also lathers as you would expect it to AND it only costs pennies (50p ish).

If you go to the end of the arcade opposite Taylor's (Picadilly Arcade) you'll find a small shop called A Maitland - they might sell blades.

I know you can get Tabac soap from there :D
