Cillit Bang has launched a pioneering kitchen dispenser, the only product on the market to deliver sparkling dishes and gleaming surfaces in just one system. What better way to review this than to make a really messy recipe or two and test it! I was provided with some recipes from Great British Bake Off runner up Holly Bell!


Carrot Fritters sounded healthy (ish) and my kids love carrot! Sometimes it is difficult to find a new and interesting way to cook them, so I got together the ingredients (3 grated carrots, 1 egg, 1/2 teasp of baking powder, 2 tsbsp plain flour and Oil – not olive – for frying) and set about making them. Well there was a mess, carrot everywhere and lots of pots to wash including a dirty, greasy frying pan to boot! A great start to test the Cillit Bang All in 1.


You switch on the dispenser using the little power button on the back.  I passed the Frying pan under it and out came the Cillt Bang smelling of lemons, a no touch dispense – FAB, especially considering you may already have wet hands from washing up! I gave the pan a quick wipe around with the sponge and put in some warm water to complete the wash and it came up sparkling and not greasy at all! I was (and still am) impressed!  Well after these delicious Fritters, it was time for some pudding!!


Well I couldn’t resist giving the Cornish Fairing Ginger Biscuits a go. Time for more ingredients (4oz Butter, 6oz Self Raising Flour, 3oz Caster Sugar, 1 level tbsp golden syrup, 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda), an easy recipe, but definitely another messy one!  The worst thing was the state my kitchen side was left in! Flour everywhere (the bags never tip right, it even went on the scales too!). So I got the Cillit Bang out again and set about my side!


As I was wiping a side down this time, I held a sponge under the nozzle and out came a squirt of the lemony freshness. I then directly used it and wiped down my side, rinsed the sponge and another quick wipe  and my worktop was sparkling, really sparkling!! It was so easy, picked up the flour, cut through the stickiness. It was great, there was no work to it at all, squirt, wipe, rinse and it is clean – what could be simpler!



I have to say I have fallen in love with this Cillint Bang All in one! So easy to use, it’s no touch dispensing system, the fact it is suitable for pots and surfaces, the lovely clean smell and the performance! So much to love, it now sits patiently next to my kitchen sink waiting to be used! The only thing is I have forgotten to switch it off and then moved it and it has dispensed on my hand, but my hands smell nice! A massive thumbs up (who thought I would ever say that about cleaning!). Now I am off to enjoy another Ginger Biscuit!




I was supplied with the product and means to buy the ingredients for this review, however all views are my own and are honest!

Now this is going to be a very short review, mainly because it wasn’t something I was going to blog about until I was forced into dealing with a situation which gave me an opportunity to talk about it!

Sunday was a beautiful day, as a family we went to Rutland Water and played in the sun, ate lots of good (and some naughty) food and generally had a fabby time!

The journey home was not so great, unfortunately the food, the excitement, the heat and the traveling all added up to one thing – a poorly little boy and an expelling of the aforementioned food! This inevitably led to us needing to stop in a lay-by, for a quick wipe around with the magical wet wipes, a change out of clothes into daddy’s spare t-shirt and a hope that the rest of the journey would be ok!

So how did the Graco Nautilus Carseat cope – well; brilliantly actually!! It was wiped down very well by the wet wipes, certainly enough for us to re-strap in the little man to make it home! Then at home (following the instructions) the padding was removed and cleaned using a cool wash, and it came up sparkling, well not sparkling as such, that may have been strange as it didn’t start that way, but it was brilliant, the padding is all now back in place smelling as fresh as the day it was delivered!

A big ★★★★★ for the ease of cleaning this seat!!
