Nonsuch is the second manufacturer of web cleaner from Toronto and the third from Canada as a whole.
It’s contents are of a Blanco style – a compressed cake of powder in a large metal boot polish type of tin. The colour is described as a mustard/tan. Since the instruction state to use a sponge it is reasonable to assume that the tin would have included a sponge like other brands. No paper wrapped blocks have come to light so for the moment the assumption is the product only came in pre-packed in tins.
