do you think it would work with limes instead of lemons? I have a tree full and can only make so much marmalade!

I'm running low on Gumpton! Thanks for posting this recipe Judydawn. I have loads of lemons and hardly any Gumpton so I must try this recipe.

Vinegar is a good cleaner passionflower but like your DH, I don't like the smell of it either.  Hope he notices the difference ;)

JD! Just made this ( has been on the list for ages) wow, love it. I use enjo so don't buy a huge amount of cleaning products, even better to make my own. I'm thinking Christmas hampers are the go this year and for something different to add this looks great. Just have to find some appropriate containers. Thanks for posting.

I have the same problem Denise finding something to put it in. Can i just ask those that have made this do you get a crust on top of cream cleaner? Mine have developed a slight crunchy crust on top(no I haven't eat it :D :D) is this normal?

I just keep mine in jam jars passionflower - no crust on top of mine after many months, it still looks like lemon curd and just pours out onto my cloth.

Hi Judy, I just made a half batch and it filled my empty Gumption container exactly to the top.

Not sure what happened to mine then JD, however I am pleased to report that by the next morning after cooling it was soft and glossy so it seem to only have been temporary.

My DH got very excited thinking I was making lemon spread when I made my first batch of cleaner. Felt sorry for him and made a batch of that as well. Why? Cause you can so easily with Thermie .

Well I just made my first batch of this and Thermie has never looked so clean  :D

I spilt some when tipping it into the jar, so rubbed it onto a cloth and tested it on the very baked on grime inside my oven door....IT CAME OFF!! I love this stuff now  ;D ;D

Has anyone used it in the washing? How does it go? Also how do you add it, Dilute with water first?
