Hello Gentlemen.

I read a lot about how good Gold Bond is, both on AoM and other websites. But after doing lots of search around, I couldn't find any place to buy it here, in Ireland. I know I could use Amazon to buy it, but I would prefer to first try it, and the postage to Ireland costs twice as much as the Gold Bond itself. So I was wondering, if there's any good alternative to it. Few would be preferred, as Ireland isn't a big country and some alternatives might not be available here as well.

Thank you for any replies,

Piotr B.

What are you wanting to use it for?

What do you think? Men use Gold Bond for one reason: sweaty nuts. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=375921

That is just one of the uses. I have also used it for athletes foot and I'm sure there are some other uses.

I don't uses it everyday. I make sure to use it if I will be hiking or some other long walking activity where I will be sure to get sweaty. I have use baby powder instead of Gold Bond in the past and it worked just fine. It does not have the menthol cooling feeling but it does the actual job of keeping swamp crotch away.

This Article mentions a talc powder made by Pinaud-Clubman that works like Gold Bond but with a more pleasant fragrance.  Gold Bond contains menthol, which is used to relieve itch, but it has too much of a medicinal smell for my liking.  Pinaud-Clubman talc smells similar to the aftershave, quite a manly fragrance in its own right.

"Medipure Medicated Body Powder"is a good option for UK based folks...it doesn't contain actual talc either, which I am lead to believe is bad for you (seems everything is bad for you these days).

 

Can easily be had on ebay...cheap as chips as well.

So Long Men's Barbers

In my modest little town of 12,000, which has 22,000+ when college is in session, we have two barbers. One is mostly retired and the other can hardly stand up half a day.The State of Illinois saw to it to regulate barbers and hairdressers. Excuse me... cosmetologists. A man, or woman, wanting to be just a barber cannot. They have to go to cosmetology school. That is an expensive school. But the cosmetology lobbyists saw to it to regulate hair cuts and barbers need licensure and weeks of formal…See More

Any advice for a clogged bathroom sink?

Hey all - The sink in my bathroom clogs from time to time. Usually it's no big deal and I just have to pop off the trap and pull out a hairball or what have you from one of the sections.This time I've popped off all the plumbing underneath to dig in with an auger, but it's not doing anything. A look with the flashlight showed a caked-on, black, gunky mess two or three feet into the drain pipe; the auger won't budge it. In fact, I think I may have closed the clog up even more snaking it in…See More
