“In with the Oust!!”

published 19/09/2011

ProFantastic at the job it's designed for!

ConsHarsh chemical formula....

I am very fanatically tidy in personality, everything has to be clean – inside and out – and my appliances are no exception, even the poor kettle doesn’t escape my fanatical attention! One of the best descaling products I have ever bought for this purpose has to be ‘Oust All Purpose Descaler’...

“Gets rid of kettle scum”

ConsNone

As I went to fill up my kettle to boil some water I noticed some flaky bits of limescale floating about in the water. I live in a hard water area so this is hardly surprising but it still made me go “eugh!” The thought of limescale floating about in my cup of tea put me right off and I decided to...

“Descale The Limescale”

published 11/04/2012

ProIt works quite effectively

ConsIt might need more then one for some people

I currently live in a hard water area and it is becoming a real issue with limescale in the bottom of my kettle. I had never really had an issue before but recently it got completely out of hand. Nothing is more disgusting then seeing limescale because you always know that this flaky and crusty...

As one of my occupations involves working in a supermarket I do get customers asking where things are and the Oust All Purpose Descaler is something that pops up quite often. The product is clearly quite popular and in the supermarket I work it is the only descaler available, so it sells well...

ConsNone

My kettle which cost on,y I think £45 in a set with my toaster has amazingly lasted 9 or 10 years. To me this is really astounding as nothing in our house seem to last more than a couple of years. To me I feel I can take a little bit of the credit as I de-scale it when ever I notice any limescale...

“Whose a limey?”

published 15/01/2008

ProWorks, good value

ConsStrong smell initially, irritant

I live and work in an area of exceptionally hard water. So much so, that, if I was trying to make you understand the hardness I would say it was like concrete, if you see what I mean. We had a water softener fitted to our hot water pipes, that lead in and out of our boiler, and we have used a...

“Oust that Scale”

published 20/07/2009

ProA capable limescale remover

ConsNone

Oust All Purpose Descaler is one of those products that I always have to hand. Our water is between medium and hard, I recently used a test strip to check our water status and when the strip was dipped into a mug of cold water three out of four small squares along the strip turned colour...

Cons-

I live on cups of tea - several every day, as well as regularly boiling my kettle for water to cook in . As I live in a pretty hard water area, this done mean that it tends to get scaled up . Now, I'm not the best at keeping my kettle free of scale, and I only tend to notice when bits pop off...

“Oust what?”

published 09/07/2007

Procheap enough

Consdoesn't work for long

Living in a hard water area and boiling the kettle umpteen times a day to make Abby's bottles, we were starting to notice how bad the lime scale really was in our kettle. There was no way we wanted our daughter taking scaly water through her bottle so when we were in the supermarket at the...

ProRemover limescale

ConsDoes not last very long

I was recommend this product by a family member when we moved into a very hard water area. I was forever trying to clean the inside of my kettle but without any real luck. I finally found this product in our local Wilkinsons store and was very suprised when it was only £1.79 for the packet. Not...

“Oust the limescale”

published 15/09/2009

ProRemoves all scale, does the job very quickly

ConsStrong chemical smell

I bought this product from my local tesco store as they had run out of my usual de-scaler product. It was a reasonable price, at around £1.30 for a box containing three sachets of the product (i.e. three treatments). I used this for my kettle, which had a coating of scale on the bottom of the...

“Oust goes the Limescale”

published 06/07/2011

Proit works really well

Conscan be a skin irritant for some

We live in a hard water area and are prone to having a lot of limescale on our showerhead, iron and inside our kettle and it really is a terrible nuisance. We looked for something cheap that would do the job and at £1.39 we decided on Oust as we have used the brand before with some good scuccess...

ProCheap product

ConsNot entirley effective and horrible side effects

I purchased this product because I was looking for a cheap, quick and effective way of removing the lime scale buildup in my kettle. I followed the instructions as given on the packaging and I have to say I am less than impressed with the results. The actual cleaning process creates a terrible...

I bought this product from ASDA for £1 and as per the instructions boiled half a kettle of water and added the contents and left for ten minutes. Simple enough you may think but on checking found absolutely no change to the kettle. I then reheated until the liquid started to fizz and left for...

ProNeutralises odours instead of just masking them.

ConsNot a very good dispensing nozzle.

I bought this product in the pound shop mainly because it says that it eliminates odours rather than just masking them. I have now been using it for 3 months and I am quite impressed with it. It does seem to do what it says on the tim althought a negative is that the dispensing nozzle on it is...
