I tried using Dettol after reading about it here but I was unimpressed with the result. It took the surface off but that was all, even after three days of repeat soaking and brushing. I’ll stick to Nitromors!

I moved to Dettol for two reasons – its easier on the hands than Nitromors and the smell is OK (reminds me of being ill when young – now THAT IS ODD). The only thing I have found that strips everything off is brake fluid and that’s worse than Nitromors on some plastics and the hands
