Domestos Grot Buster
Advantages: Does not splash about and doesn't have a strong smell of bleach. Pointy nozzle very useful.
Disadvantages: Not as versatile as traditional bleach.
In my wardrobe I have a couple of pairs of special trousers and tops, these are known as my Sunday best and are liberally spattered with bleach stains! Working on boats in Spain the atmosphere is always damp and salty and trying to keep mildew away is a constant battle particularly in the Autumn when it can be very damp and humidity is frequently up around the 80% Bleach is in frequent use particularly for bleaching teak decks, canvas and vinyl seats hence my rather attractive outfits.
The trouble with bleach is that it splashes and I was very interested to try out a new product by Domestos which I spotted in my local Morrisons in Gibraltar, Domestos Grot Buster, super thick bleach cleaning gel. brilliant on the grime you can see and the germs you can't. Worth a try.
The packaging looks the business being made of matt black plastic The two flat sides make it easy to grip and there are two non/slip ridges on the neck so that you can hold it by the obdy or the neck. The nozzle which is protected bya child proof clear plastic top, is bright blue in colour and very narrow. The whole neck is slightly angled so that you can get into hard to reach places.
On the reverse the label says that the specially thick gel will dissolve even the toughest germ infested grot including mould,(hurrah), and is specially formulated to cling to vertical surfaces.
We are recommended to use neat and leave on for 5 minutes and then rinse well and reapply if needed. Use it to clean tile grouting but avoid coloured grout and decorated tiles. Use on dustbins, showers and any other hard to get to places
Contains bleach, do not use on wood, old enamel. plated metal, aluminium, vinyl, linoleum, rubber, fabric or leather, letterings and symbols.always wipe up spillage and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Wash hands after use and keep only in the original container.
After reading these precautions I decided that this product would be best used cleaning inside areas and started by using it to clean bathroom sinks. The pointy end makes it easy to direct right round the taps and the thick clear gel really does a good job. Best of all it does not smell too bleachy. The gel froths a bit as you scrub and after a good rinse the sink is left sparkly clean and fresh smelling. It then solved another problem area for me which is the overflow in the kitchen and bathroom sinks. it is very difficult to get any product into these tricky ares this clean but again the thin nozzle did the trick and I was happy that the overflows were clean. I would buy it for these properties alone but it has also broughght an old ceramic casserole back to a state of sparkly white and cleaned up the grouting in the bathrooms.
I have also used it to remove mould on a high up difficult to get at cupboard. The back wall is made of plaster and, with the aid of step ladders, gloves and an extre long paint brush I managed to remove the mould. I squeezed the gel onto the paint brush and because it was so thick it didn't drip everywhere and coated the wall well with a bit of effort!
It's not as versatile as ordinary bleach but neither does it splash about so I think used appropriately it is a good buy and the nozzle is a great idea.I will definitely be buying this one again. It's a bit heavy duty but sometimes this is just what you need.
4 stars from me at around 2.00pounds it's a good addition to my cleaning cupboard.
As with all these products please keep away from eyes and do not swallow and follow the safety instruction on the bottle.
Thanks for reading my review which may aslo be posted on ciao under splishsplash.
