Sale of Acid Products


Unfortunately, we are all too aware of the increase in acid attack crimes being reported in the news recently.

This is why we have come to the decision to restrict the sale of products with high levels of acid to under 18s, in line with many other responsible retailers.

The following products will no longer be on the shelves and instead will be sold behind the counter to adults only:

  • Dam buster (1 and 2.5 litre)
  • One shot drain cleaner (1 litre)

We also supply of number of products with a lower acidic content (e.g. brick and patio cleaners). These will still be available on the shelves, but the sale of these will also be restricted to over 18s only.

This scheme has gone into effect immediately, across all of our branches.
