I bought this a while ago for the hob. It work ok on there but no better than a squirt of fairy IMO.
However, I started cleaning my frankly filthy upvc door yesterday and needed something abrasive. It worked amazingly!
Then I moved on to grimy light switches and it worked a treat.
I thought I needed to repaint after 5 years of mucky handprints and furniture scrapes on walls. Oh no. Not with this stuff. And it's about a quid in Home Bargains etc.
Like the sad good MN'er I am, I have pics...

I should add, I didn't scrub hard or the paint might come off!

I use a lot of Astonish products and find most of them fantastic, my favourite is the descaler for kettles and showerheads. The only product I found a waste of money was the dishwasher tablets.

I've been using this for years, ovens, burned pans, patio furniture. I got my dad some for his birthday as a bit of a joke and he loves it. He went and bought ten pots as he loved it so much smile
It does actually go an awful long way, but he is a hoarder. The stainless steel sink was his favourite outcome. You can also get an antibacterial version but only ever seen that in tkmaxx not home bargains.
Astonishing stuff!!

I'm slightly obsessed bloody impressed with it!
Will definitely try other products in the range though don't have a dishwasher so no probs there!
I'm in the middle of a massive sort out in my house and it's these little things that are keeping me going.
Looking forward to trying it on my windows frames once I can access them blush

Thank you! I've just spent an enjoyable twenty minutes on the phone, wandering round the house with a fluffy duster. The corners and book as es have never been so clean!

Can I just pipe up with their window cleaner? Much better than windowless or Mr Muscle & much cheaper. The only comparable for us is Method, which is a bit more expensive and smells lovely.

I have used it for years. Great for burnt pots. It's dead cheap in home bargains

I need something for my toilet.

Greengagesummer Wed 27-Apr-16 20:44:33

That would be windowlene...

I went onto use the cream and it is good. Very good. Much better than barker person friend, which stinks the kitchen out for the rest of the day.

Mandp76 Wed 27-Apr-16 21:34:25

Windowless? For the toilet?

Mandp76 Wed 27-Apr-16 21:35:01

Ha ha ha! I meant windowlene. For the toilet?

mrsmeerkat Wed 27-Apr-16 21:37:44

Windolene cream in the pink bottle (very old fashioned) is amazing too.

Another tip is vinegar for smelly clothes grin especially sweat!

M&P sorry I wasn't answering toilet question, more the thread generally.

Though I can recommend cillit bang toilets & harpic white & bright for performance.

I bought Astonish Oven and Cookware by mistake, then discovered it's brilliant for cleaning the shower door.

Mandp76 Thu 28-Apr-16 17:45:46

Ha ha ha. Sorry greengage. I read it wrong! blush

Yes I 2nd Astonish too. We have a vile cooker hob which is 'terracotta' a beige yellowish colour shock ( it was in the house when we moved and we're saving up for range).

Anyhow I used boiling water to loosen the grease, then the Astonish to finish and it looked lovely (if a terracotta coloured hob could ever look lovely !).

I use this natural paste. It works amazingly and leaves nice fragrance.

I love Cillit Bang toilet cleaner too but it seems to have been discontinued sad

Buckinbronco Sat 30-Apr-16 14:43:08

Thanks for this, im getting some

JPinkertonSnoopington Sat 30-Apr-16 14:43:34

Is Astonish better than Oven Pride, and do you have to leave it on overnight before washing it off? Oven Pride does a good job but I got a little bit on my skin and it really hurt so I would prefer something a bit less fierce!

I have started to use Flash with Bleach for all kinds of cleaning in the bathroom and kitchen. It works better than anything else I've tried.

Brilliant stuff - got all the dried out grease off my Aga and has removed limescale from granite. Has got marks off roasting tins and bakeware that I thought would never shift. Am always flogging it's genius to my mates!

dementedpixie Sat 30-Apr-16 15:54:16
