I wandered recently into my local branch of Wilko’s to pick up a can of my favourite scouring powder. I won’t name that particular product here, as it is not the subject of this review. (But it is named after a Greek hero, so the more erudite amongst you will know which product I was looking for.) Anyway, I digress. I was informed by a very pleasant young man that Wilko’s no longer stock Brand X. I was distraught. Oh, I know there are lots of other loo cleaners to choose from, but I like scouring powder. To me, there is no greater satisfaction than getting a brush around my U-bend. (Otherwise, I am quite sane…really.) “But,” my ever so helpful assistant continued,”we now stock this.” “This” turned out to be Astonish Power Cleaner. I pondered, I vacillated, I mused. “Oh, go on then.” (I’m easily swayed.) At only 45p this product is quite a bit cheaper than my former purchase (Oh, how fickle the British consumer can be!) Astonish Power Cleaner comes in four exciting varieties. (I’m getting carried away now.) Mountain Fresh Orange Fresh Peach Fresh With Bleach. I, being of a somewhat conservative disposition, chose “With Bleach”. Arriving Chez-Moi, I donned apron and rubber gloves and set about cleaning my loo. Astonish Power Cleaner is a very fine powder, and you only need just a sprinkling for superb results. The powder fizzes on contact with water and has a very pleasant, clean-smelling fragrance. I scrubbed away, and the loo came up sparkling. So I turned my gaze on the slightly scummy basin. Again, I was most impressed with the results. All the soap scum disappeared, and, after a good rinse and then a quick wipe, the basin shone. Astonish Power Cleaner with Bleach is chlorine based and does not contain phosphates. (I’m not a che
mist, but I think these are non-biodegradable salts commonly used in detergents.) Normal safety precautions apply when using Astonish Power Cleaner.Keep the product out of the reach of children. Avoid contact with the eyes, but in the event of accidental contact, rinse the eyes with running water and seek medical help. Do not ingest the product, but again, in the event of accidental swallowing seek medical help immediately and show the container to the medical staff. Always wash your hands after use, and avoid prolonged contact if you have sensitive skin. Astonish Power Cleaner is not tested on animals, which is one of the criteria I look for when buying any new product. The product is also biodegradable. (I am an environmentally friendly consumer, too.) Astonish Power Cleaner is only one of a number of products manufactured by The London Oil Refining Company Ltd.I am so impressed by this product that I can’t wait to try other products in the range. The Company has a website at www.astonishcleaners.com Go on…get yer brushes out…!
