Arrived on time. I have to assume that the contents are what they say they are. Certainly when I mixed it with copper sulphate & sprayed my nectarine bush it had the desired effect. Package came with health warnings.

    I have been using surgical spirit for years but recently it's very hard to get hold of. Luckily Amazon sell this so ordered some just to keep back. It can be used for a number of things so handy to have a bottle in. It's only a small bottle but you don't need much.
