title[edit]

The title is now Sachet (scented bag). That is true but sachets are really any small porous bag, used for a wide variety of purposes. The title should really be "Sachet (porous bag)". Pkgx (talk) 15:57, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

This sentence in the lead is true and important "A sachet is also a small porous bag or packet containing a material intended to interact with its atmosphere; for example, desiccants are usually packed in sachets which are then placed in larger packages." The article itself is mostly just about those scented sachets. Would be great if someone could make it clear that the term "sachet" could be either. A disambiguation page could be the solution?

Usual BS[edit]

Get used to it - most people know a sachet as a small metal-lined bag for powders and liquids, mostly proprietary medicines and sauces like ketchup, salad cream, mayonnaise, etc.. The type of sachet you discuss may well be the original use of the word, but it sure as hell ain't the only one. But it's so politically correct and worthy, it almost makes me want to puke.
