Taking the hassle out of cleaning
Now, to put this product to the test..
Holly Bell, runner up in the Great British Bake Off has compiled some seriously messy recipes specifically for Cillit Bang. I decided to try the Cornish Ginger Fairing Biscuits (see below for recipe).
This recipe makes a really sticky dough so is the perfect recipe to test out this cleaning product. To be honest I didn't find that I created much mess however I used the All in 1 to wipe down my kitchen sides, wash up, and clean my hob.
I liked the smell of the product and felt it wasn't too strong. I was also very impressed with how well it cleaned my hob, which I always find a nightmare to get clean. I didn't even need to scrub! The amount dispensed doesn't look like much but actually goes quite far. I did find it made my sides a little soapy, and had to wipe it down a second time with a damp cloth, but other than that, pretty impressed! The dispenser is also pretty compact so can sit by the kitchen sink without being in the way.
As for the biscuits, my daughter loved making them, and they were pretty tasty too!

Cornish Ginger Faired Biscuits.
6oz self raising flour
3oz caster sugar
1 level tbsp golden syrup
1 level tsp ground ginger
1/2 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
* Pre-heat the oven to Gas mark 5/190C/375F and line a couple of baking trays with grease proof paper.
* Melt the butter and syrup in a saucepan.
* Once melted add the ginger, flour, sugar, and bicarbonate, and give it a good mix with a wooden spoon.
* Check it's not too hot to handle.
* Form the warm play doh type mixture into balls about the size of large walnuts.
* Put them onto the lined baking trays and make sure there is plenty of space between them.
* Put the baking trays in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the balls look biscuity.
* If you like your biscuits with a bit of ‘chew’ (more cookie like) take them out when only the sides are brown. If you like them crunchy then let the whole biscuit get a suntan.
* Let them cool on the baking tray for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
