Tipp-Ex Rapid Fluid
Advantages: It covers small mistakes
Disadvantages: You have to go over the correction more than once and the sponge isn't very good
WHAT IS IT?
White correction fluid that is supplied in a small bottle. It is for painting over mistakes you make when you are writing or typing.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
When you notice a mistake you just wipe over it with the Tippex. You use it like nail polish and the sponge applicator is stuck into the lid of the Tippex, this was a lot better when it was a brush instead of the sponge but the sponge makes it look less obvious that you've used correction fluid. It goes on in a very thin layer so I have to wait for it to dry and go over the mistake again, that's because the fluid soaks into the sponge and doesn't go so thick as when it used to have a brush.
WHAT I THINK
Tippex is much more time consuming now because of having to build the layers up but I think it looks neater than having a thick and shiny layer like Tippex used to leave. It covers all mistakes eventually apart from if you are writing using a thick black pen and then you might not be able to remove it all. Most of my mistakes come when I am writing up client notes and because they are only for my reference I don't mind leaving small marks but if it is something more official then I avoid using Tippex at all.
The smell is still quite strong and I thought they would have made it less so by now, the fluid also drys to a dusty finish so you can write directly over it without risking your writing smudging like always used to happen with the old Tippex because that was much shinier when it dried.
I don't use Tippex very often but it doesn't dry up in the bottle as long as the lid is on tight, the bottle I'm using now is over a year old and when I took it out of the drawer it was still a useful liquid but had gone a bit thicker over the months.
3 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: This is still a good product but I think it was better when you had a brush
