About us

Welcome to the Astonish family. From small beginnings selling our Original Oven & Cookware Cleaner door to door, today we produce a range of over 60 product from Mould Removers to Oven Cleaners to Stain Removers sold in stores nationwide. Now 2nd generation we’ve spent almost 50 years understanding the real cleaning challenges you face every day. Whatever your cleaning problem we aim to have a cleaning solution. Now we’re not saying that we can work miracles, let’s be realistic cleaning can on occasions be hard work, but we’ve taken the time to ensure we’ve developed products that get the job done right, nothing less. Simply put we’re on a mission to make real life (mould and all) shine every day.

Passionate about being Cruelty Free

When it comes to doing things right that doesn’t just include our cleaning results. We’re proud to be pioneers of animal-friendly household cleaning products. We’ve never tested our products on animals or used animal ingredients. Simple. We aim to be a shining example of how you can deliver cleaning product which get the job done without the need to test them on animals. So, given the choice why would you? Today, we are still the only UK manufactured household cleaning brand which is approved by Cruelty Free International, The Vegan and Vegetarian Society. We like to think of ourselves as squeaky clean.

Keeping it local

We keep things local, manufacturing all our triggers sprays, soaps, cream cleaners and natural pastes in a state-of-the-art purpose built site near Bradford in West Yorkshire. From idea generation in our laboratory to manufacture and packing, it all happens under one roof. And, when the product is finally ready to leave the factory to head to the shelves we aim to keep our road miles to a minimum. Our distribution partner is next door and we’ve recently taken on and branded 5 Lorries to keep our road miles as efficient as possible. If we can incorporate two journeys into one, we will.  That’s cleaning up in more ways than one.

Our people

We’re a friendly bunch of around 90, led by our owner manager Howard Moss. It was Howard’s father who set the business up some 50 years ago and who can on occasions still be found popping his head around the door. From sales to lab technicians to production operatives you’ll find us all under one roof. We’re also a team with an unashamed passion for delivering Astonish cleaning results. New ideas are a plenty and as an owner led business we have the ability to bring them to life quickly.
