Hey guys, I just found out that my favourite detergent (Drive) has been discontinued, does anybody know where I can try and find it?

Why don't you contact the manufacturer? I have not seen it in decades. Wasn't it introduced as one of those early enzyme detergents?

Drive was brilliant

I remember the advert they dropped a few drops in a dish with oily water in and the detergent made the oil go to the side of the dish... Was it back in the 70's when it first came out??

I have not seen it for aaaaages here in NZ.
You can get something called Drive Professional.

That comes in a very large box.

I wasn’t exactly looking for the commercial stuff, more the household stuff
