Stardrops All Round Cleaner

Is anyone still using Stardrops ARC as a prewash? Noticed HB has it for 89p...

Cheers

I ran out a while back, never used it as a pre wash though. Just as an emergency APC.

Isn't this a bit strong for a pre-wash ? Took the teflon coating off our oven trays when left to soak overnight !

I used it on my leather.

Their leather clean and feed didn't really cut it.

Their APC gave a nice matt finish.

Ha ha I used stardrops in the mid 1980s before I could afford an upholstery vacuum. I had a vac which could suck up water. I got a bucket of hot water, shoved some stardrops in and dipped my scrubbing brush in and scrubbed the seats and carpets before sucking the water out. They always came up great. happy days!
