What was the impact on the cleaning product inventory?

At this stage it is too early to quantify impact on the cleaning inventory as other cleaning products still in stock are being used in combination until depleted. The intention is to streamline the product inventory with time.

What differentiates Quickleen-S from other cleaners?

Quickleen-S is effective in areas where damage has occurred e.g a burnt pot or pan – it will get it clean again.

How did the cleaning staff react to Quickleen-S?

My housekeeper likes the product, it is versatile and pleasant to use. It has a pleasant fragrance and is not toxic or harmful in anyway. My housekeeper soaks a cloth in a mixed Quickleen/water solution and she finds she can do glass shower doors & benches in this way and then just dry buffs afterwards.

Cost Savings

In the period November '14 to March '15 (5 months), we used approximately 2.7kg of Quickleen-S which translates into 500g pre month at a cost of $13 per month.


The product is good and I believe that it has uses yet to be discovered. It allows us to tackle the “yukky” jobs with a bit more confidence.” – Barbara English, Pearl of the Bay Motel
