    for those who cant find star drops. i get mine in iceland. they always have a stock of all the different ones, but i only buy the original and use it for everything. a pound a bottle in iceland.

    That's a bit far to travel for a cleaning product. :j

    Anyhow, I live in Ireland at the moment and NO ONE has heard of Stardrops, ever....

    But, I was in a little out of the way place in Dublin last week, you know, a little street full of small shops and stuff, and in one of them wht did I see? YEEEESSSSS Stardrops, but it was a kitchen cleaner type of bottle, you know, the spray thing. Of course I bought it for 2 euro and used it today, magic. But I think it can be diluted a bit.

    I have been reading about Stardrops on here for sooooo long and knew I could never get it here, so I am now so happy to join the club!

    Hi MSErs,

    I've not bought any for a while as I had a stock pile but have run out of Stardrops. I usually go to Wilkinsons for it but wondered where else sells it at the moment. Anyone know please?

    Thanks

    Pandora, according to mysupermarket its on offer at the moment in Asda, £1.39 for a litre, not sure how that compares to wilko/ home bargains/ bargain madness/ poundland/ poundworld as i've not brought it for a while (i'm sure the bottle acts like that Magnum Infinity ice-cream advert)

    I bought some last week from Poundstretcher. They had a few different ones. I got the all purpose 1 litre one for 99p.

    I've been a very happy convert to Stardrops for a while now, usually get it from Asda, although it lasts for such an age that I have to stop and try and remember where I get it from!
    Recently, I had to clean someone's very dirty flat so I decided I might need some thing with a bit more gumption so bought, for the first time in my life, Cillit Bang. Well, I went through the entire bottle of CB, finished a half bottle of Flash I found under the sink and as I still hadn't finished resorted to using my diluted solution of Stardrops. This worked every bit as well as the other products and was considerably cheaper!

    I recently bought some Stardrops in a Poundstretcher shop, but it was very poor quality compared with what I have had before - weak and watery, and a squirt in the washing-up bowl soon went flat after washing just a few plates and cups. Have they changed the formulation? :(

    Ozne- was the colour the normal darkish yellow or was it a very pale colour? I was under the impression if a company changes the recipe/ formulation of a product they have to indicate this on the packaging

    Home Bargains sell all the different ones, bought some today to try because of this thread and I knew I had seen it in there. I haven't got my till receipt to hand but I think it was around 89p? They had Stardrops with ammonia as well, also a spray multi-purpose one but I just went for the orangey yellow stuff you can dilute yourself.

    It was pale and thinner in consistency. I compared it with a bottle of the usual orange gloopy stuff bought some time previously, and couldn't see any differences in the labelling.
