Smells like melted plastic
Always used metho to clean around house and sterilize shaver. Now it has a funny smell like plastic/rubber. Used it this morning and my hands still smell. Went back to store and checked the smell of the other ones on the shelf and they all had the smell.
Bad batch smells wierd
Like Phil below, we just got a bottle that stinks. I rang Customer Service number on the bottle, and they confirmed there was a bad batch R7 07/13 that went out, but that the product is still ok to use. However, I'll be returning mine and looking for a different batch that doesn't smell.
Bought the 4 litre bottle in Bunnings for $13.05. I've never thought to review metho before but, after opening the bottle (difficult) and discovering that Diggers metho doesn't smell like metho anymore, I decide to do a quick internet search. No luck, but ProductReview came up. So here it is - Diggers metho started my fire this arvo just like normal, but the stuff in the bottle now has a very odd smell. Or, to be more exact, it stinks. Bring back real metho! (And no, I don't drink the stuff.)
I bought a diggers methylated spirits liquid in a bottle from towradgi freedom fuels even though it was expensive at 10 dollars so far so good as I use it to treat mosquito bites as it takes away the sting and reduces the urge to scratch lessening the chance of a infection and in the past I have used it to clean surface of pen marks / I would recommend the diggers methylated spirits as a backup
great, i don't need to buy expensive products that are water based, i can use one product to clean the kitchen, bathroom and kids toys...
a simple and easy to use product, can be used to clean all hard surfaces in the home.
the smell does smell like an alcohol based product, but its not overpowering. a spray bottle would be handy
Questions & Answers
Can methylated spirits be used for making hand sanitiser
recent bottle of diggers metho stinks, making my wife dry reach while cleaning in the kitchen. why have you guys made it smell terrible? wont be buying it anymore.
G'day Macca, similar story here. I rang the company in QLD and they said they had some 'batch issues'. Said I should take it back to Bunnings who were aware of the issue and would refund my money. The bad smell has abated somewhat, and I only use it for lighting the fire. If I was using for cleaning, if would be completely unsuitable. Cheers, Phillip.
