It's the door to door scene, magazine left on the step and the Kleeneze man breathing down your neck. Irate people not wanting to buy anything contrasted with people genuinely interested in wine racks, bed spreads and shoe holders. What ever did happen to that metal cream that couldn't be beaten we shall never know, but once you bought a tube of it off Betterware it lasted forever. Long ago Betterware was the brush type salesman at the door with the brown suitcase. It survives today and that speaks for its quality and endurance. If you sell the stuff you get all the rebuffs and insults that go with door to door, low commission and a busy overcrowded day full of customers with tiny orders, customers who disappear when you wanted them to pay and just occasionally the super prat who returns the toothpaste squeezer because it doesn't work. Your boss returns with half the stuff you had orders for not available (after you killed yourself getting them) and then gets shirty with you when orders decline. The company runs detestable little schemes to make you feel involved like writing success stories in the staff magazine and an obscure bonus thing. However, Betterware products cover a wide range and are often durable and high quality. People have been buying it for years and there is respect for it.
I am sure I ordered some freezer bag fasteners which you hardly ever see in shops, but I never received them. Nor did I part with any money. I have always thought some of the goods look very useful. If I had more money to spare, I would possibly buy a few items.

The trouble is where I live. The Betterware come round one week, then Kleeneze the other.
Don't know which to chose.

betterware has loads of useful stuff. I love flicking through and they're quite cheap as well
