    Crud & Residue removal with a knosti use 2 of them , use like your grans belfast sink 1 x wash with fluid & 1 x rinse with distilled water & into fresh anti-static inners also Lart du son offers better cleaning results if you upgrade to a vacuum/ulttrasonic RCM in the future just use the Knosti as a pre-wash cleaner then pop on the RCM
