Mum's surprise use for 'miracle' $2 Aldi product

The Di-San Pre-Wash Stain Remover from Aldi is renowned as a ‘miracle’ product amongst cleaning enthusiasts, not only for laundry but for a range of household spills.

Now, however, a mum has shared a new and surprising use for the product, that is sure to come in handy for pet owners.

Taking to Facebook the woman shared a snap of her Stain Remover bottle alongside a very novel idea for how it can be used in the pursuit of domestic cleanliness.

“This product I cannot recommend enough, it does it all,” she wrote alongside the image.

“For any pet owners... [while] scent removing cleaners are needed, do not pay the pet store prices this aldi product does the job.”

She went on to claim the product, the ‘ultra degreaser with enzymes’ version, was the only one that worked for her cat who has a habit of relieving herself wherever she likes.

“I used this and omg it worked,” she wrote. “After over a year of trailing different products, this was the answer.”

With pet stores charging up to $30 for a spray product that claims to do the same, the Aldi spray is not only a guaranteed solution but about $28 cheaper.

We all know there’s nothing quite like cat urine for absolutely destroying the smell of an otherwise fragrant home, and hundreds of others jumped on the post to confirm that they too relied on the product for pet pee control.

“Totally with you on that,” one lady wrote. “I have a cat that every now and again will pee in one corner. The grout stinks when using a steam mop. I have used this and wow the smell has totally gone.”

“One of my favourite Aldi products,” another shared. “It needs hall of fame status. Best $1.25 I've ever spent. I use it everywhere.”

The spray retails for a paltry $1.25, and won the 2019 Choice Recommended prize.

It’s marketed as a ‘powerful stain removal’, lemon-scented and Australian made.

It has long enjoyed a cult status as a ‘miracle worker’ for its transformation of showers clogged with grout, and clothes ruined with notoriously difficult to remove stains.

It’s yet another feather in Aldi’s cap this month, after their pots and pans widely considered quality dupes of the high-end Le Creuset cast iron cooking range hit shelves to the delight of shoppers last week.

Yesterday, Aldi fans also raved about the Aldi Visage Rotating Hair Volume Styler Brush, which claims to dry and style hair in one step.
