Also, make these Buy one Get One free by doing what my friend does.

He uses a pair of scissors and cuts them into two down the full length of the strip to get two tests out of one.
True story and handy tip.

I think these must just be a local random offer as I can find them in stock anywhere in 3 locations I am in or could get to

I don't understand how it would even be theoretically possible. It's basically a urine dipstick test albeit for a hot tub. Each square has chemicals that react; producing a colour change depending on the substance it comes into contact with. You are not removing any chemicals from each millimetre of square; you are just reducing the surface area of the square ie a smaller patch will change colour.

Theoretically they should be able to be cut into at least 10 or 20 per strip, as long as you have a microscope to interpret the results

i personally think this is a brill idea... one which i will do going forward!!

As for the doubter... i cannot see how cutting in 2 can give an inaccurate reading...im sold enough to take that chance.... i will even sacrifice 2 strips, one cut in half and the other normal...if they come out the same then going forward this is going to save me a good bit of money.... and also stop me being as tight with using them

Thanks!
These are much cheaper on Amazon as they are just litmus paper. This price is ten times for the same thing in Argos. Makes no difference if you cut it, I am a chemist so I can say that with conviction.
