Tipp-Ex Rapid Fluid
Advantages: bottle lasts for a long time
Disadvantages: can be messy if you apply too much
Tipp-ex has been around for as long as i remember really. I remember always having to use it at school whenever i made a mistake. Just yesterday i wrote in a birthday card and got distracted and ended up writing 'happy happy birthday'. Yeah normally i wouldn't worry about it and laugh it off but it was for my other halfs gran! I didn't have time to go get a new card so dug in the desk in our telephone desk to get the good old tipp-ex. Probably the first time i've used it in years.
I'm sure we all know what tipp-ex is and how to use it, but basically it is a chemically correction fluid that comes in a miniture bottle. You unscrew the lid of the bottle and a brush is attached to the underside of the lid which is left dipping in the fluid of the bottle when shut. The lid can be difficult to un-do when you first open it. The fluid does smell very chemically but its not too overpowering because you only use a little bit at a time anyway. The fluid needs to be applied very lightly or else it lumps up and when you come to write over it again your pen can go right though it. When used properly it allows you to write over the applied bit of paper. I haven't had to buy a new bottle of tipp-ex for a long time now because a bottle will last for ages. Literally probably had the same bottle for nearly 20 years now lol. Probably owing to the advance in the use of computers meaning that writing letters, etc, is not done these days i guess. I think it costs around £2 a bottle though which is great value really considering how long a bottle lasts for. Most products seem to have cheap brand own supermarket versions but i've yet to see another version of tipp-ex. Maybe they have patented the idea...
