Fantastic for removing sticky labels and dried glue

Removes all sticky labels (no matter how dried up and old they are) without damaging the original surface. Has a pleasant sweet oily smell. Also claimed to work on clothing stains but haven't tried it. As an ex chemist myself, it's always good to find a product that does what it claims. I suspect it would also work if you were stupid enough to stick your fingers together with super-glue. Not the kind of thing to test at home of course unless you're desperate! About $12 from Bunnings. Show details

Can’t get it out of the bottle

This product did start to work on a grease stain - but after 3 sprays it wouldn’t spray any more! Tried everything to get sprayer to work but it just wouldn’t! The top does not screw off so I couldn’t pour it into another bottle. Very disappointing Show details

Lid isn't well designed

For a spray bottle you'd think they would of designed the spray bottle top a little more watertight. I lost more then half the product after dropping the bottle and the lid popping off. The screw on section was still on the bottle but the insert popped out. Show details

New spray bottle

I have used this product for years and love it, but the new spray on the 125 ml bottle which I brought last week at Bunnings is useless, more product covers my hands and the floor than the surface I am using it on. Show details

It has no equal

This is the only product which quickly and SAFELY dissolves adhesive on car bodies after the removal of vinyl lettering and graphics. However, I agree with another reviewer that the plastic bottle and sprayer are poor quality and break easily.

Worked when nothing else would

Desolved old road tar from car paint, which reduced scratches. Left it on 1 min then wiped/rubbed off. Used soapy water afterward to wash over tar-removed area then rinsed thoroughly. Show details

Great product, hopeless bottle caps and spray caps that break every time

The product works great but almost every single bottle cap or spray cap I have purchased over the years has broken from a small fall or getting bumped over. Maybe the formula makes the plastic of the bottle fragile but it’s a joke how easily they break. I now wrap mine in insulation tape which helps.

Where has this been!?

House inspections come every 6 months and doing a major clean is tough especially on those kitchen grease on top of the stove vent. This solution cuts through it and leaves a nice orange smell since it uses orange oils. It's also great on the dining table where a sticky residue builds up over time. Pretty much any surface that you can think of that is recommended by this product to be safe! It removes sticker residue as well from price tags or labels! Really recommend this product!

I bought this a while ago but just used it this afternoon to clean kitchen cabinet doors. I had read the reviews and the smell was suppose to be a pleasant citrusy smell. I don't know where that comes from because it's the stinkiest stuff I've EVER used. It's more of a gasoline mixed with something and the stink just won't go away! Anyone have any idea how long after using before the smell disappears? It's been over 4 hours and I gag every time I walk into the kitchen.

I'm an artist. I've heard citrus solvents are good for cleaning oil paints off brushes. Is this true? Would it hurt the bristles?
