Goddards "DRY CLEAN" and "DABITOFF"

Post by verytalldave » Sat May 12, 2007 11:59 pm

Goddards Dry Clean was an aerosol which you sprayed on clothes to remove small stains and marks. It dryed to a chalky white powder which you then brushed off which removed the stain as well. It was actually damn good and really worked well, however it was probably discontinued as the chemicals in the fluid helped remove the ozone layer by the bucketload.
Dabitoff was a glass bottle containing a similar mix of chemicals, but instead of being an aerosol it had a sponge pad which you used to apply the fluid to the mark or stain. Didnt work as well as Dry Clean but was cheaper.
Today both would be banned for sale to under 18's for obvious reasons.
Its a shame that DryClean couldnt be reintroduced but with more environmentally friendly ingredients :idea:.

I remember dry clean, my mum used it all the time, stunk the house out.

Don't know if it was any good, though.

Yes, it did. Made your home smell like a petrol station. But it did work!

I used Dabitoff for a few years. Fairly effective, but it disappeared ages ago...
Sworn, b'loody!

Goddards Dry Clean:
Don't know if it's the same stuff these days, but you can still get it
here


Dabitoff was, I believe, a tradename for carbontetrachloride, which has long since been banned cos it's carcinogenic
