I had a (very sad) eureka moment this morning

I rediscovered old fashioned cream cleaner. For years I splashed out on expensive spray cleaners for the bathroom and kitchen and decided I was just a slatternly bint because nothing ever felt really clean.

Today I spent 99p on a bottle of cream cleaner, what a revelation! my sink sparkles, my bath is a different colour I am sure, miraculous. Yes I had to rinse but nothing that caused any problems.

I am stupidly pleased and thought I would share.

If you can't use Vim (plastic bath) then try HG Bath Shine, it's fab & lasts forever as you only use a tiny amount.

You can get it from Lakeland, Amazon or little hardware shops.

Well I am mning in the bath and a bottle of Cif I found in my garage is on the side for when I get out grin got a buffing cloth and Windolene out in the kitchen and I might even open the box of oven prideshock later.
my house is well overdue a good sort out so this might spur me on a bit

Be careful, I'm not sure but think some surfaces can be damaged by certain cleaning agents.

I never use anything on our enamel bath except water. I may use a little limescale remover at some point but am nervous about it....

Minniebar, have you tried dishwasher tablets to clean your bath jets? Kim and Aggie did this once with great success.

On the reminiscing theme... whenever I see "Ajax" I remember an advert where they said the name backwards "Xaja Diquil" - wondered if I was imagining it but found it here
The idea seemed to be it made your surfaces so shiny it reflected the name on the bottle into mirror writing! Anyone else this sad?!

Wow - what a blast from the past! smile

I bathed in Vim too.

Does that mean that bath cubes would be good at cleaning? grin

It is the best thing on the kitchen hob too. I just alternate between that and dettol spray to avoid a build up.
