Tipp-Ex Rapid Fluid
Advantages: Covers mistakes well, easy to use, good price
Disadvantages: Takes a while to dry, smells strong
I am currently completely a Cache course in childcare along with a NVQ in Health and Social care so needless to say I have a lot of paperwork to get through. I tend to like to word process my work however some of the things that I do whilst at my course or whilst I'm at work is handwritten and of course like anyone I make mistakes so always have a bottle of Tipp-ex on the go.
I bought my current bottle when I was shopping in Asda but you can buy it all over and it really isn't hard to find. The most recent bottle I have came with a plastic covering on the front attached to a cardboard piece but I have also seen the bottles been sold loose, a bottle of Tipp-ex usually costs about £1.50.
The bottle of fluid is only about a couple of inches tall, it is made of white plastic and has a white plastic screw cap lid which has the brush on the underneath.
To use the product simply unscrew the cap and you will find there is a small foam piece attached to a stick on the underneath, dip the foam in the bottle and then drain off any excess against the top of the bottle and then paint over your mistake. You need to be careful where you are draining off the excess as if it drips down the side of the bottle and you don't use it for a while you can find the top becomes stuck and hard to open.
The liquid is not to thick unless you have had it for a long time and not too thin so it doesn't drip too much, you use to get a brush like what you would apply nail varnish with instead of the foam but this dripped more which may be why the makers change the brush to foam.
The liquid is white in colour to match typing paper but you can still tell where you have used it and sometimes you need a couple of layers to cover up mistakes. The worst thing I find is waiting for the Tipp-ex to dry and I have been know to forget to go back to correct the mistake in my work.
I think Tipp-ex is a good product to have but I still prefer my work to be word processed as I like it to look neat, Tipp-ex is a great products for correcting mistakes without leaving a mess it's just a shame it takes that long to dry and it smells pretty strong too.
Summary: A must in my pencil case
