Cillit Bang

Discussion in 'UK DIY' started by The3rd Earl Of Derby, Jan 28, 2006.

  1. is good for cleaning ovens. ;-)

    Turn on the oven for five minutes to melt excess fat.
    Dry excess fat out of the oven with paper kitchen towel.
    Then spray on Cillit Bang and wipe off, repeat Cillit Bang and wipe.

    Mind you I shouldn't be doing this meself. ;-)

    Thats why he was positioned for the Ad. ;-)

    At first I was a bit dubious about the product in the way the woman sprays
    it on the sink and then wipes it off...however if you watch closely the
    towel hits the sink before the product and lo&behold the sink is clean
    before its made contact with the product. :)

    Well if you are that good at ovens you can do ours ;-)

    As for "Barry" and the dumb bitch posing in the ad it's all a con anyway as
    the original ad used a Dime instead of a penny!

    The product also removes the lettering on plastic dials too.....handy for
    playing "Guess the Setting" on the Dishwasher

    It didn't say that on the packaging in large enough letters for SWMBO to
    see....cost me £15 for a knob!

    Which Cillit Bang would we be talking about here? They do 2 versions.
    Universal Degreaser and Lime & Grime.

    The degreaser is a good product, really does work well. The lime & grime is
    acid based and not bad either.

    Agreed. The way he wallks on and says "Hello Barry Scott here" as though we
    have all heard of him before!
