Thanks for your input Kathryn - I found a heap of rock salt when I cleaned out the pantry the other day.

You are amazing Jd.  Very quick work.  I have my lovely mum close by who has a lemon tree full of nearly ripe lemons so I might try it out. Thanks for following it up.

No worries earth mumma.  Lucky you being able to get your hands on so many lemons.

Thanks JD for this recipe, just made it,  my house smells lovely, waiting for it to cool so I can use it. And the TM bowl is lovely and  shiny.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

It is lovely - I will be wiping down all my surfaces before my Easter visitors arrive.

Grow lemon tree, grow.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Made this.  DH is currently cleaning the oven with it.  I put some in the sink with dishes/dishwashing liquid and definitely notice the sparkle.

Going to run it through the washing machine on empty cycle as a bit of a clean out and then test it out when I do towels next.

Just want to clarify that this recipe is not like the dishwashing liquid with the FATAL TMX WARNING.  Is it the adding of the rinse aid that causes trouble, the rock salt or the combination of both?  As messages from Dishwashing liquid say trouble is due to acidity?.  I have read the messages from the dishwashing liquid only after making this cleaner (which by the way I love, smells great and no damage to my machine), but am confused to the difference between them.  Could someone please clear it up for me (after all this cleaner is from the UK thermo site), and are there any new developments with the dishwasher liquid, and could we use this cleaner in our dishwashers?.  Hope this all makes sense ???

Faffa might be able to enlighten you on the differences (other than the obvious ie the ingredients) Sassafrass.  I only use this one for wiping down the sinks and adding to my washing machine for a nice smell.

Hi Judy, is this anything like Gumption?  Does it clean bathrooms?  Does it have a longish self-life?  I haven't done much cleaning since I got the TMX, but had a go at the bathroom this morning and I'm nearly out of cleaner. I want to make everything!

Guess you could say it was a similar product, although totally different. I haven't actually used it to clean the TM bowl (I go straight for the Gumption for that) but I have used it for cleaning the bathroom basin etc and the stainless steel sink and keep a jar in the laundry to add a blob to the washing machine. It lasts for as long as it would take for you to use it up. I will try it on the bowl next time something sticks and see if it works as well as Gumption, just never thought to do so in the past.

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

Vivaroo, I used the paste today to clean the bowl after making cheese sauce and it gave the same result as Gumption - paste and finger nail did the trick which is what I do when I use Gumption.

Bonsai, if you have excess limes there is no harm in trying - can't see that it would be much different to lemons.
