I second this...just used liquid Wine 28410 and it took just fine. My local Safeway has a ton of xxx10 and I plan on going over there today and hitting them hard and fast.

I just went to Joann Fabrics and bought up a few extra. They were all behind with the new stuff in front. They obviously don't rotate their stock.

ok so now we have to open all the boxes, that should be fun... FUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKKKKK! this is some serious bs, time to go see if my earlier hoarding today is for naught.. I tried for all 10's so I should be ok

Ask them to check in the back as well. Grocery stores don't sell Rit very fast or order it very often. They may have some sitting in backstock.

I've always stood right in the aisle and opened the boxes. We had an open pouch in the box dump in the 4Runner. Luckily it vacuumed up and didn't get wet.

I'm bummed by all this but really glad we are all starting to get a grasp of what the hell is going on. See you all on the next episode of Hoarders.
