Fairy Power Spray

Just about ready to start the winter clean-up and went for the FPS. Where the hell is it its of the shelves, has fairy stop poducing it or is it a regional marketing ploy.
I found a new product called Fairy Platinum with built in soaking action but no spray nizzle is this the re-brand?
FPS was good and cheap but it did what it said on the label!!
Any news

I agree. Don't know what they've done to it, but it hardly cleans the bleed'n shower, never mind a boat.

Took ages to find it in Sainsburys but it turned up in the end with the floor and bathroom cleaners.

Worth the effort ... good stuff

Perhaps I can save you a fortune. Trade secrets if you like. We clean alot of boats, 180 in storage. We discovered an amazing product from a hotel cleaning supplies company. It is a swan product called general purpose blue cleaner / sometimes mighty blue. Specially for bars to get rid of grime. knocks the socks all the expensive cleaners .Comes in a four liter can . About 9, mix 10 percent to water - so goes a long way. We use B and Q garden sprayers. Spray it on and the grime just falls off with a light scrub genuinely saves a fortune. Don't put it on too strong (unless you have a really dirty bilge) or it streaks. Not good for windscreens or outboard paint but for hulls and interiors fantastic . IOW supplier is Lake cleaning Co very help full. You know the blue covers on eBay it's as life changing as that!

As good as TFR in my opinion ,, much better than I thought it would be in cutting through old grease marks
, says on the box that its ok for removing oil and paint from stone / concrete graffiti, or just for general household cleaning in dilute quantitys,

TT your Rib never really gets dirty though! It's used, then cleaned. Most cleaning products do that. Left for 7 months tied as a marker bouy, it's harder graft! M501 Bostick thinners
