    Caught a smell of the throat clearing ubik in Tesco late the other night, seams they were using it to clean the bakery ovens. Anyone used it on an oven, tbh I didn't know it was safe for that sort of thing.

    It was designed as an industrial degreaser and cleaner for the food industry and abottoirs etc
    It is 100% food safe

    I must have something wrong with my nose because I don't think it smells much.

    Safety Data Sheet was an interesting read under title symptoms it says "Inhalation: There may be irritation of the throat with a feeling of tightness in the chest", I find that funny as I experience the same symptoms when customers fail to pay on time...

    hard to describe the smell but i can taste it in the air as i breath it. i find it clears the throat. interesting side note, the two cleaning in testos were dressed like Umpa lumpas and had dust masks on (don't think a dust mask will make much difference). we have the advantage of usually being outside with it, theses guys were in a confined space, not a fun job!
