Newsflash: Wipe Out & more…

We’ve had a lot of questions from people asking us about our products lately and lots of messages asking us if our household favourite Wipe Out is the “original” that they know and love.

We’re delighted to say, that YES, it is! Despite what you may hear from a few rumours going around.

So, let’s set the record straight with a few facts…

British Basics is part of McKLords, a family run business with over 30 years of manufacturing experience and our Wipe Out stain remover including all the other quality cleaning essentials that we offer, are original, formulated and made by McKLords, right here in the UK.

Our expertise as manufacturers needs no introduction and we have been supplying household favourites to countless companies over many years, indeed you may recall Wipe Out being the top seller in the good old days of the company previously known as Kleeneze!

From 2003 – 2018, we sold 700,330 bottles of Wipe Out to Kleeneze alone and the majority of their top selling chemicals were made by, you guessed it, McKLords!

Now a British Basics exclusive, Wipe Out and all the cleaning products you have been used to over the years remain the same quality products made to our exacting specifications. We’re accredited to BSI ISO 9001-2015 “British Standards”, which is an industry mark for quality control, and we are proud to say that we’ve held this award consistently with zero non-conformities each year.

All that’s changed recently is the price you are paying! Our products are now cheaper than before as they are coming direct from us, the manufacturers!

We’re really excited here at British Basics to be bringing you these great products at fantastic prices and thank each and every one of you who have joined us so far!

We’d love to hear from you!
