I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I suspected Cobba was breaching the Official Secrets Act by divulging the sensitve Australian technology of the VICTA Mower Company,

It came up good Cobba

I have found over the years for cleaning plastic and making smokey once clear plastic clear again and getting dirt out of tight corners etc 
Baby bottle sterilizing stuff works a treat
Just let it soak away over night and it usually comes up a treat

 

does your untrasomic cleaning doodah do the same job ??

looks like a new mower

Miltons is a hypochlorite. Hypochlorite disinfectants attack stainless steel.

From a caravan site:

 About 4 weeks ago I flushed my FW tank with Milton I had about 1/2 a bottle left which I stood in the stainless steel (I think) sink in turn that got knocked over and a little leaked out. I found the Milton had reacted with the sink to the extent it has made two holes right through.

I have made a temp repair with epoxy putty but now need a new sink.

Lang that is correct 

or at least I have found that to be correct, but for glass and plastic I have found nothing better

the stainless thermos doesn't like Milton been used to many times

and sorry Cobba I didn't mean to corrupt your thread

I am sure it does great things in many areas and I think Cobba would be struggling to find any stainless on a VICTA to damage. I am about to try some on an old headlight cover.
