    Will have to try this stuff! Does it smell horrible though? I can't stand the stuff you put in your dishwasher to clean it - it gives me a headache!

    I remember this stuff..... I think, my Mum used to use it.
    Does it smell of Lemons? If it's the same stuff I thought it smelled good enough to drink when I was a small child. Not at all reccomended though..... it is like 10 times more bitter than earwax!

    Thats a good price, same as Wilkinsons. It does smell of lemons and all you need is a tiny drop in your washing to make your dishes gleam!

    I priced it at the ironmongers for £1.29 and then bought it in the corner shop for 82 pence.

    Wish I had paid 58p! But wanted to get it while I remembered.
