"I don't doubt this is an easy way to clean a bike or hands, but isn't anyone bothered by the waste? A rag or cloth, some mild detergent and water does the job just fine. "

"Yeah I would have thought they'd being getting better at it by now..Well, maybe if we all complain they might try and fix it eventually. I complained via the ACC general complaints email address."

"yep fully agree, but why re-invent and getting it wrong (or at least not quite right) when laymen (like myself) can pick up design (not implementation) flaws immediately."
