Nothing (good) lasts!
Good products by good companies always get squeezed out. Find something really good and guaranteed before long it will disappear. The power of the big two supermarket chains.
We, the consumer, would gladly pay more for BLAST. It was the best dishwashing detergent; THE BEST.
So sad that it is difficult to buy good products in this country.
I would even order a box of Blast if they sold it online. Happily pay the shipping and handling fees. By-pass the retail stores completely.
Blast! Blast is gone but Earth Choice Dishwashing Concentrate is here yay!
I loved Blast but then it disappeared off supermarket shelves. Then Earth Choice Dishwashing Concentrate showed up and to my amazement I discovered it's the closest thing to having Blast back again. Not sure if it's Blast re-packaged and with a formula kinder to the environment but I haven't bought anything else since
I have been using for a short period of time for the few dishes that l have and found in the supermarket
Great for me and leave hands soft and the smell brings back alot of memories hard to find in our supermarkets bring then back and maybe in a bigger bottle
Purchased in December 2018 at Frankins for $4.99.
The best ever!
I have been using BLAST since I first found it on supermarket shelves and I have always found it to be far superior to any other brand I have ever used. It makes all others look like they have been watered down and it is by far the best grease-cutter ever. My stocks have now run out and we are having to use other brands which I find to be simply rubbishThe best
Purchased in July 2018.
Frustrated that Blast has been discontinued
I agree with the other recent comments - this detergent has been terrific. I would have been happy for the company to increase the price to continue its availability. It always works really well, doesn't have an overpowering perfume and doesn't affect my skin negatively like other brands do.
Why has all the supermarkets taken Blast off the shelves
First Coles, then Woolworths now IGA have stopped stocking the best diswashing liquid. I can't use Fresh i've allergic to it since I was a child.that was 36yrs ago. Shame on all the supermarkets, now i don't have a clue on what to use.
Blast Dishwashing Detergent definitely was a Blast
I only found out yesterday after visiting the IGA store in Mascot, NSW (not all IGA stores stocked it) that they have deleted Blast Dishwashing detergent. It had been quite sometime since I was last there, as I had purchased 3 bottles, as we know it goes a long way, and does a fantastic job. I like other posters on this product are in the same wash-up (excuse the pun). I still have 3/4's of the last bottle of the 3 that I had purchased.
After reading the post where they have stopped manufacturing the product, as it was difficult to either get ...it on the shelf or keep it on the shelf in large and small supermarkets, like other small Australian products that are being squeezed out. But what happened to the stock on hand or that was being made, surely not poured the drain? Surely not, that they only manufactured enough product to cater for orders! It would be an ideal situation to sell the product online, even through Amazon Australia or on EBay/Gumtree. Again, like others have said, very dispappointing that Blast is not available anymore. I shall treasure the remaining product I have left. 20/2/19 - tonight I used the last of the Blast product that I still had. It took 4 months to use 3/4's that was left. I had begun using Earth that was recommended by the Blast people. My initial review of Earth was not as good as Blast. So will use this for 2 weeks and review it.
Purchased in February 2018.
Bring back Blast Concentrated
I have been using this product for more than 10 years. It is the best in the market as it does not have chemical smell, gentle to skin and very economical. I think it is also a healthy choice.
Hey, supermarkets, this is a really good product. Please bring it back to your shelves.
Where has 'Blast Dishwashing Concentrate' gone?
This is the ONLY product which has the body to cut through grease in the kitchen without using bucket loads of detergent.
Just a couple of drops is all that's required for the average wash-up.
The bottle of Blast is easy to handle, a very easy dispensing top and just a damn good, very cheap to purchase product.
Best grease cutting dish washing product by far!
We thought this was just a temporary supply issue - don't want to believe that it is final! This product works so much better than the major commercial brands.
I hope that the decision to cease production will be reconsidered.
Washing baking dishes in an eco - sensitive area, dependent on rainwater was made so much easier because Blast was so effective. Very disappointing!
I always stocked up, and the one time I didn't it's discontinued?!
I am so unbelievably upset that this has seemingly been discontinued, especially since I had always purchased in bulk before, but for some reason lately I'd been slacking and only buying one bottle at a time. Well, now I'm paying for that as I cannot find it anywhere. This stuff always left my dishes spotless, it was just the right balance of thick and concentrated that you never needed to use too much, yet were always left with a superior clean. I realise it sounds quite silly to be so devastated over the loss of a cleaning product, but who doesn't wash the dishes every day? I'll also miss the fragrance of my favourite, the blue one, it always reminded me of blue slush puppies.
Best dishwashing cleaner ever
Very sorry to hear that it has been discontinued. After the majors stopped selling it and our local IGA followed suit, I could see what was happening. I still have about 10 bottles under the sink but I’m so pleased I bought them. Next, Earth Choice. Damn and blast!
I can't remember how long I've been using Blast detergent. As Foodland often runs out I can only think a lot of other customers use Blast so how can sales fall so low they stop making it. There is not other detergent I want to buy, as a creature of habit more than satisfied with Blast detergent I would have stayed with it for life.
Extremely happy with Blast detergent but equally as disappointed with Blast being taken of the market.
Questions & Answers
Where has this product gone from our supermarket shelves?
Who is still selling it?
This is the best of the best; others are just an expensive alternative!
They do not make it any more. Here is the response I received.
"We are really sorry not to be making this product any more, unfortunately when both Woolworths and Coles decided to remove Blast to sell their own brands it made it unviable to continue making it. We don't have any stock left at all I am sorry."
I'd suggest you try another Natures Organics product Kevin - from the Earth Choice range. More bubbles than Blast and much less concentrated, but still much better than the top selling commercial brands.
I’ve been using blast for years now and love it.. I can’t find it even at IGA, how else can I get my hands on to it, pls any help?
