Found 9th Jan 2009
only my personal opinion but think about it ?

its about 4 quid for 15 washes yeah ? so if you like me you would get through a pack a week .... in fact id get through way more but im trying to be average here lol

so 4 quid a week over 2 years = a new washing machine .... ???

i agree

Are you expected to use it during every wash?

lol hotpoint tried to sell me this stuff, i told them i live in scotland, we have soft water. The they tried to sell me something else. its all a con.

Sloth/Mod

Persil, Ariel, Daz etc @ a pack a week over 2 years = New Washing Machine.

Are you saying you would rather smell and have a new washing machine as an ornament every 2 years. :shock: ;-)

nicki, I love you, you make me laugh!!! Most adverts make me think I live … nicki, I love you, you make me laugh!!! Most adverts make me think I live on a different planet, 'cos I never buy any of the stuff, who the feck does? :?



lol dunno babe soz that advert just gets my hackles up lol

in all the 20 plus years iv used a washing machine iv NEVER once had a break down through lime scale :?

sorry im just sick of stuff being sold to us thats full a poop lol xx

I bought a new washing machine last week after my last one "died" on me just weeks after the guarantee ran out. I intended to use Calgon in it from the start to try and prolong the new one's life, but I too was shocked at how much it would cost to " add a tablet to every wash" I do at least 2 loads a day so in 2 years I have easily spent the equivilent to a replacement washer, so if this new one only lasts 3 years as well I will still be quids in

lol i agree!

Doesn't stop the pump burning out, does it coz thats what goes on all of mine!!!

doesnt rinsing your machine every now and again have the same affect??

EDIT: rinsing it with vinegar that should have said
