I went to two Wal-Marts today (despise that place!) and found multiple pallets of the Garden Basics with Old Castle's name on it just like what has been discussed here. I went armed with a fresh bottle (which I bought in the same store) of Distilled White Vinegar.
No reaction. It just looks like wet sand. I even tried it on a couple of bags with small holes in them (or newly made finger-sized holes.. <cough>) on more than one pallet. Each time, NO
indication of a reaction... just looks like wet sand.
I tried Quikcrete "premium" stuff at Lowes. No reaction.
I tried Lighthouse brand at Toys-R-Us. No reaction.
We only have one K
-Mart since the other went out of business recently (go figure). They said they had no more sand and that it was "too late in the season" to be ordering any more. Come back next year. Dorks.
So... total bust on the sand front for me.
has Aragamax in 30 pound bags for $40. I just about coughed up a lung. I'll keep hunting for other sources.
