Smells like melted plastic

published

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.

Purchased in July 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for A$4.00.

Used to love cleaning with it now it stinks

published

I use metho watered down for cleaning everything (except wood) but I'm finding bottles stink like dirty feet once opened.
I feel like an idiot opening and smelling them before I buy to make sure it doesn't stink.

Bad batch smells wierd

published

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.

Previous reviewer is reliable.

published

I know the reviewer Phil Mc and if he says so I believe it. There is not a more reliable fellow on the planet. Only trouble is...how do you know my word is reliable, especially when I forget a question mark.

Odd smell...?

published

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.)

Best ever

published

I used this for the first time today...I have white bamboo floor boards in my lounge dining room. ...I will never use another product... normal boards in my hall and office. Thank you so much for this time saving product. No streaking as advertised. . I love this stuff.

about average

published

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

Excellent

published

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

Can methylated spirits be used for making hand sanitiser

1 answer

It sure can. Just remember they put a foul tasting chemical in Methylated Spirits, so it is not the best thing to use, because if you lick your fingers, they would taste bad.
I googled and found this website which has a recipe: https://e-liquid-recipes.com/handsanitizer

I can only think it could be to lessen the chances of people drinking it.

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.

I found the same as your wife it really stinks.
Tho i have read a few times its a bad batch but i tend to disagree have bought it now several times from different places even tried different brands and had found only the odd occasion where it actually smells normal
