Can be used diluted or neat
Suitable for use on multiple surfaces
Effective at cleaning
Been using this product for years now all around the house and also at work. I can't see myself cleaning and not having sugar soap somewhere in the mix so anytime I clean, sugar soap is there to help me out always.
Purchased in January 2017 for $4.25.
Great product with a great price
I was recommended this product from my car auto trimmer
To wash down the car carpets..Head lining..Mats..Any fabric gives a good result
The beauty is this product is multi purpose..Wash down interior house walls..Doors.. Grime just wipes away.
For a $4.95 product worth keeping a couple of bottle in storage
Purchased in January 2020 at Woolworths Physical store for $4.95.
I have used this sugar soap for years! Washing walls and floors - no bubbles, but it gets rid of the grease in a couple of wipes. I used it on top of the kitchen cupboard to get rid of that horrid grease/dust build-up and it worked like a treat. Have also used it on some dirty spots on my carpet and they went too, with very little rubbing, and no problems afterwards. If I am thinking of doing some serious cleaning, I would always try Selleys Sugar soap first.
Purchased in January 1990 at Woolworths.
My go to heavy cleaner
I have been cleaning grout on my kitchen floor tiles. Every few tiles I tried other cleaning methods (vinegar, baking soda and even toilet cleaner) but Selly's Sugar Soap does the best job for me. Also easiest to wipe over. Just used it diluted in a spray bottle. I also noticed it was more effective if I let it stay a few minutes before using the brush on the grout.
Insect spray on wall paint
I unfortunately sprayed "insect crawler" spray on a painted wall and now it appears to have discoloured the paint work. Will the sugar soap dissolve it a bit?
There's a fairly distinct track where the spray was put on.
White, glossy tiles!
Literally the only thing that brings my tiles back to there original colour without scrubbing like crazy. So, so glad I spilt the bucket whilst cleaning my walls before painting!
i use it for everything especially the stove top splashback are where it does get all the grime from cooking
i hate cleaning the oven so when it eventually does come time to clean it i put sugar soap wioth hot water either in the laundry sink or the bathtub and then put everything i can fit in the sink/bath and leave it to soak for an hour or so, and then when i come back i don't have to scurb very hard at all to get off all that baked in stuff. Works a treat everytime. I also soak the the little vent things in it too.
nothing to mention
Love love love it!!!
Having been a renter for some time now i have to say that this is a product that i can just not live without especially when you have to do a big clean when you move out so that you get your bond back. there is literally nothing that this stuff wont do. You can dilute it to clean the floors with, wash the walls with it, oven surfaces. It gets things really clean and manages with a little elbow grease to remove the most stubborn grease stains or marks on your floors or walls. It also smells really nice and is rather inexpensive and is at all the major supermarkets.
Gets everything off
I love Selleys Sugar Soap. It literally gets everything off dirty walls except the paint. I used this recently before painting and the walls were so clean, i almost didn't have to paint.
I always have a bottle of Selleys sugar soap in my house. Its not only great for cleaning down dirty marks from walls, and to prep walls before painting, but its great to get grease out of my hubby and sons jeans after they have been 'fiddling' with the cars ( best to check on small bit of fabric first) A big hairy biker told me this trick when I picked some sugar soap up from bunnings!!! I also make a stain remover by adding 1/3 sugar soap with 2/3 water in a spray bottle and use instead of spray stain remover. again check fabric and take care...with whites, as if you make it too strong can make where you spray go blue!! ( but comes out in a few washes) easily available and reasonably priced. Easy to idetify with bright blue bottle! Cleans greasy walls and painted doors without streaking. Diluted so can use to desired strength all depending on how tought the job is. none that I can think of - its a very conveniant product.
I have been using Selley's Sugar soap for years for washing down grubby walls and ceilings when it is needed. It is also a great product for cleaning up walls and ceilings before painting to remove grease, grime and dirty marks so that dirt and other contaminants are properly removed and allow paint to adhere properly to previously painted surfaces, particularly with areas such as kitchens. This is also a very effective cleaner for cleaning anything greasy, oily or sticky. A single bottle will last for many jobs as the sugar soap is very concentrated.
excellent product, widely available at hardwares and supermarkets, not expensive
I have only ever used the product for cleaning down the walls - before painting and just for cleaning the walls. It does a good job of cleaning and not ruining your paint (if you don't intend to repaint) Sugar soap doesn't leave residue afterwards. will definatley try the other uses suggested by previosu poster.
Cheap widely available product that cleans the walls really well before painting or just for general wall cleaning too. it leaves walls clean without marks without damaging your paint.
I can't think of any - it does exactly what it is meant to.
I purchased this product originally to clean my walls in preparation for some new paint and was surprised to find how many other things it can be used for. Not only did it clean all the grime from my walls, but I discovered it worked very well on removing soap scum from my bath room. I also use it regualry now to remove greasy stains from clothing. It can be used as a spot prewash cleaner on clothes, or I have soaked certain items in it with very good results. I am amazed at its versatility. and it is very well priced. It comes as a concen...trate which can be used diluted for many purposes. I use it neat in the bathtub as it removes the soap scum with very little effort. Awonderful product I can't live without!! Versatile cleaner that works best on removing grease. Very inexpensive You need to wear rubber gloves as it dries your skin very quickly
