    Is Jeyes fluid the same a Javel bleach? Or would Dettol work just the same?

    Sue- Jeyes is really strong and concentrated-if you smell it undiluted it would take your breath away compared with Dettol, so I'm not sure the result would be the same. I expect someone here will know the 'chemical' difference though. Haven't heard of Javel bleach I'm afraid.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • I soaked some teabags in (undiluted) Jeyes & put them in a narrow side entrance, yesterday a cat walked in that direction then turned away.

    I think it smells a bit like creosote.

    Did you dilute Alan?  Did it stain the wall/fence that you sprayed?

    Hi i used the ""ready to use """ spray it took about 3 days to have an effect then Kate bought a tin of it so i just followed the dilute on the label instructions, i did by accident spray a weed which died nicely ,it seems to do what it says on the label a very good disinfectant and weed killer it seems ,i also use it for my water butts cleansing once a year when i drain down in winter,i didn't get any staining that i can think of,i also read about soaking teabags in it and burying 2 inches below the soil where the cats gather also they said any muscle joint spray on the teabags works very well i hav,nt needed to try these as Jeyes has worked so well for months now and im very happy as my history on here will tell, Right im off sorry no smileys on here they have disapered for some reason

    good luck all Alan4711

    I shall be trying the teabag method i think. There's one particular cat that sits in the flower bed next to my wildlife pond with an eye to helping itself to the frogs.This might fettle it!

  • So glad I read this thread, will be rushing home to soak tea bags in Jeyes - my neighbour has 4 cats and they all use my flower beds!  Would also recommend Jeyes for cleaning, especially washing down the greenhouse to eliminate green mould.

    Thanks guys

  • Hi

    thank you or the advice, ive got jays and will soak t-bags in it to stop 1 cat using my front path boarder as its personal toilet.
