It's good, but not quite rightI really did not want to mix up a batch of sugar soap solution to prep my skirting boards so thought I'd give these a go.
+ cleaner & easier than applying and rinsing from buckets
+ handy resealable pot keeps them fresh and no mess
+ big roll to get the job done
+ very effective on small areas
- roll is perforated into 80 small wipes, you generally need more than one to be effective on the job (same principle as toilet paper if you catch my drift)
- although great when first applied, they dry out very quickly when used over larger areas
- a bit pricey
Totally convenient to use for little clean up / patch up jobs, but suggest you go large/old school if you have a big job to do.

Don't bother!Having used sugar soap solution made up from powder, I thought that these wipes could save time and hassle.
However, the lack of a safety warning was a clue!!
You really don't want to touch strong sugar soap solution with bare hands, but these are barely moist.
Described as "Extra Large" they are smaller than a paper kitchen towel.
Costly as well, stick to sugar soap solution.

Did not work for me at allUnfortunately did not work for me, used them to wipe down a wall before painting after buying them halfway through prepping, and whilst it looked clean it didn't take the paint at all, unlike the other walls which had been done with liquid sugar soap, water and a sponge.
Ended up removing the paint, sanding and sugar soaping, so these ended up costing me money and time, rather than saving it.
Might be fine for cleaning, but certainly not prepping, which they advertise they are suitable for.

Easy to use productBought these to clean paintwork in kitchen which was very greasy. Great at cleaning and much easier to use than traditional solution of sugar soap in a bucket.
