Another stupid claim from Harpic lime scale remover that it is ten times more effective than bleach in removing limescale. Since bleach is not a limescale remover the claim is totally nonsense.

Molar Hydrochloric acid is the definitive limescale remover.
Pffffttt - schoolboy chemistry; if you want to remove every trace of limescale (and anything else within a couple of hundred metres), use FOOF* (Dioxygen difluoride)...

Here’s how the experimental prep of today’s fragrant breath of spring starts:
Quote:
The heater was warmed to approximately 700C. The heater block glowed a dull red color, observable with room lights turned off. The ballast tank was filled to 300 torr with oxygen, and fluorine was added until the total pressure was 901 torr. .
And yes, what happens next is just what you think happens: you run a mixture of oxygen and fluorine through a 700-degree-heating block. “Oh, no you don’t,” is the common reaction of most chemists to that proposal, “. . .not unless I’m at least a mile away, two miles if I’m downwind.” This, folks, is the bracingly direct route to preparing dioxygen difluoride, often referred to in the literature by its evocative formula of FOOF.
AKA "Satan's Kimchi"

Inventing stupid words that rhyme with -abix and adding -abix to the end of every other word. Who devised these ads? primary school kids?

Anyway who would want to eat a bowl of baby sick and sawdust for breakfast. I'm surprised it still exists.
Totally agree,hate that advert too and like you thought it was very childish. Do like the cereal though.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I've just seen an ad for what is in essence a daylight temperature (6500K) LED reading lamp for 249! WTF just get a daylight LED bulb for your standard lamp - 5 tops.

Quite like the Norton 360 ad about being watched and all the things round the guy look like faces.
