Pony cleaning materials in different countires
« on: December 08, 2014, 02:21:50 AM »
This is something I've been thinking about for a while. :huh: The MLP Preservation Project has a wonderful list of cleaners and materials for making our ponies beautiful again but what if you live somewhere outside of the US and the brands mentioned don't exist?

I was thinking this thread could become a sort of go to list for non US pony collectors to post their countrys' equivalent to oxiclean and the Mr Clean Magic erasers and other cleans that are just as useful to clean ponies with.

Alternative to:

Oxy Clean
Vanish Oxy Action (previously known as Napisan) - Finland, Sweden, UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand

Dawn Dish Soap
Pamolive (concentrate) - New England, New Zealand
Fairy - Europe, Australia, UK

Mr Clean Magic Erasers
Malamine sponges (type of sponge not a brand name)
Chux Cleaning Cloth Magic Eraser - New Zealand
Vileda Miraclean - Finland

Deep cleaning
Jif (Cif) - UK, New Zealand
Sugar Soap (can also be used for deflocking) - UK, New Zealand

General cleaning
Baby/wet wipes

Sounds like a very good idea. I know I had some problems at first when all those US products were nowhere near this little corner of Europe.

Great idea! Here in Finland we have Vanish Oxi Action that is the same thing as Oxyclean, but I'd love to know what equivalents people have found for products like Remove-Zit or Goof Off. :)

YAY!! I thought it'd be a good thread. When I have a little more time today, I'll update the first post with the alternative materials and which country they can be found in.

We use Dawn soap here quite often for cleaning grimy ponies, since it has some kickass grease fighting power, but Palmolive can work just as well. Make sure it's concentrated. :)

5 or 6 years ago it used to be a nightmare to find the products people in the US described, but honestly I find so many US products over here now its weird!

Vanish is the equivalent I use for oxy - its the same thing essentially. However I suppose its cool that we have our own products that the US does not get - the amazing sugar soap, that I swear by, being one of them :)

I've update the first post with the info so far, thanks guys!!! Please keep them coming.

Cat - what would you use sugar soap for with ponies? I've only even used to clean out cupboards before/after moving houses.

What a great idea for a thread! Let's see... Well, Fairy is the euro equivalent for Dawn.

Sorry, was doing too many things at once and got confused...  :blush: The first post has been updated. Can others in Europe confirm that Fairy can be found in their countries? It's just that Europe is huge and incorporates a lot of different countries and I'm not sure if things in one part of it can be found in another.

Wow, awesome thread!
I think Vanish Oxi action is sold all over Europe, but I haven't seen Palmolive concentrate? Is it like concentrate for dishes or like a liquid soap?
I'd really like to know about magic eraser alternative!

EDIT: I think that Mr Clean is called Mr Proper in Europe (but there is also Mr Muscolo/Mr Muscle, which confuses me :lol:), but I don't remember ever seeing magic erasers. I'll ask my mum tomorrow!

^ In NZ it's used for washing dishes in the sink instead of the dishwasher. I assume it's the degreaser in it that works on pony stains/marks, so my best educated guess would be that any gentle dish washing liquid with degreaser could work. If anyone can agree/disagree with this statement please post - this is just what I've been able to work out from reading up on everything.

Also just a thought - anyone like the idea of links/pictures of the actual products? That way people can know exactly what the product is.

Magic erasers are also known as a melamine sponge (sp?) So if you see them labelled as that - it's a magic eraser! We also have fairy and vanish oxy. I just use an antibacterial dish soap, as most of them here have degreasing agents.
