I've used Rid since I lived Budaberg 35 years ago. For the last 15 years I've been using it in Thailand on a daily basis, but cannot buy it here.
I use the 375 ML squeeze bottle, and had a friend buy it in Melbourne city.
Now I cannot find anyone that stocks it, in sufficient quantities, I buy at least a dozen at the time. Any advise?
