Used diluted or straight from the bottle, it's a strong product so for most jobs it is best to use diluted. Use half a bucket of warm water and about 1- 2 tablespoons of black soap liquid (or a dollop) depending on the job being tackled. For mopping floors - use more diluted. For most household jobs use diluted. It has a very strong "old fashioned" soap smell, some people hate it but we love it. Here are some recent examples from our family and friends
- My Father in Law has just cleaned all his wooden garden furniture with this - he is very pleased. Also no problems with the water draining away into the garden, this is a biodegradable natural product. He used the product diluted in a bowl of water and scrubbed away. He didn't wear rubber gloves.
- My mum puts a dollop in her teapot, fills up with water and leaves to soak. It removes all the tea stains.
- I use a small amount undiluted on a damp cloth to clean stainless steel surfaces such as the cooker hood, front of the fridge and other stainless steel kitchen appliances to remove smudges and fingerprints and to leave a clean shine - absolutely brilliant.
- My friend Claire gave a bottle to her Dad who absolutely LOVES it and uses it in the shower - I said "oooh what a good idea - cleaning the shower whilst you are having a shower" She said "no - he uses it to wash himself" !! You can use this product in this way (it is just soap) - but we would advise doing a patch test first and then only using it diluted.
