Astonish oven cleaner. Its cheap and easy and best of all non toxic, with no fumes. I find it cleans best when the oven is still slightly warm.

I don't know about Vanish but Astonish is brilliant stuff. Works a
treat, isn't gooky, smells not at all.

But I can only get it around here in Tesco's. Nowhere else.
Waitrose don't seem to stock it. Nor does our local hardware guy.

It is an abrasive paste but not harsh. Very fine abrasive
+ some kind of detergent grimebuster gunk in it.

So fine it doesn't scratch up the steel surfaces. And it's
not expensive.

Cleans Glass, Chrome. Ceramic stoves, Bathtubs, Sinks, Loos.
uPVC windowa, Patio furniture etc. You name it.

One tub lasts for ages.

If it gets old and dries out, you can just dribble some water in
the tub, cap it, and leave it. It'll be back to normal next time you
want to use it.

Leaves my hands ever so lovely and soft whisl

Thanks for the tip!

Trouble is my nearest Pound shop is in Brighton, 12 miles away.

So, that means a 24 mile round trip and one clumping great carbon footprint.

It'll just have to wait until next time I have to go to Brighton anyway.

Luckily my pot of Astonish is still half full. But after that ....Poundland here I come!
