Has anybody had experience with the 30 Seconds "Spray and Walk Away" products in particularly the Shower Cleaner? We've got red spots all over the shower tiles (most likely soap scum) and I really don't want to scrub the entire shower and was looking at these products.

Do they work?

My experience with similar products from these guys has been very good.  Not tried the shower cleaner, just the exteriour house cleaning stuff.

Thanks for that. Wow! Their shower cleaner is priced a lot more than the 30 Seconds' one!

Have used the 30 sec brand shower cleaner recently, didn't do much.  Have been told the wet and forget is well rated though.  My parents swear by it

I haven't used the shower products, but I had two wooden decks at my old house that were quite dark and had moss and mould on them. I cleaned one with "Spray and Walk Away" - closely following all the directions - and it made almost no difference at all. I subsequently treated the other one with "Wet and Forget" - again following the instructions - and it came up beautifully. Not "like new" exactly, but it certainly made it look years younger. Well worth the extra cost of the product.

My experience of some similar "30 seconds" products bought from the Bunnings is very good. Although I think they are overpriced for the simple chemicals, but you cannot buy those chemicals easily. So its ok.

Wet&Forget also have the Tigers Paw shower cleaner thing. Haven't used it, but know someone that has - says it is very good.

Best to wait for a sale with them - they do have them, but you'd have to listen to the radio for them I suppose (Only place I've seen or heard sales advertised).

Okay thanks guys.

I'll buy the 30 Seconds $7 shower cleaner for now (since it's only $7) and if it's not good I'll wait for a special on the Wet and Forget product.
