    It's pretty good stuff but I would advise you to wear rubber gloves, however as IIRC it is not kind to skin.


    Thats why I was wondering. :confused:

    I don't know to be honest! The bottle is recyclable as plastic, but it doesn't have a full list of ingredients...just says contains amongst other things less than 5%, preservative: 2-bromo 2 nitropropane 1 3-diolm 5-15% Anionic surfactant.

    From reading the boards here, a little goes a very long way and does a very good job.

    Maybe someone in the know can fill us in?

    Aww - my grandma always used to use Stardrops ...... memories :)

    I have bought it before but it was in my pre-OS days so can't remember what it was like. My next door neighbour uses it too - she's the same age as me and I remember thinking it was a strange product for her to buy. I'll bet her mum used to use it :D

    However, I noticed a while back that my big Tesco's have discontinued it :confused:

    If you like Stardrops you will love its big brother STARCLEN !

    It is a white coloured liquid with the added cleaning power of ammonia and shifts anything .

    I put some in a spray bottle and use it for heavy jobs like oven cleaning etc, works a dream and no nasty burns like with most oven cleaners !

  • Stardrops is fab! My mum introduced me to it years ago when I still lived at home. In fact, I just washed the bathroom floor with it about 10 minutes ago (see what an exciting Saturday night I have!) and washed down all the kitchen worktops with it earlier. Asda still sell it, last time I bought it there it cost about 60p. Can't say I have ever found it hard on the hands and I never wear rubber gloves, maybe I'm just a tough old boot! I will look out for Starclen too.

  • Used to buy this years ago but had forgotten all about it, will have to invest in a bottle now, especially if it's good for washing as well.
