    I know the smell you mean, i think they must use industrial strength screen wash, or not dilute it properly.

    Stealers always seem to put this stuff in - it stinks!

    Gwt yourself to Tesco and buy yourself a bottle of their stuff. Only smells a little bit and seems to clean just as well!
