This feels like a wasted sentence - unless I become a mad scientist mixing potions, I am unlikely to say to my sidekick 'quick, Lurch! I want a powder - yes, that one. The purple glittery one that will help me blow up the world...' Though it helps reinforce 'tá...uaim,' so I suppose all is not lost.

When buying laundry detergent:
Q: Which one do you want? A: I don't care about the brand, but I want a powder, not a liquid or a capsule.
