It has been a week since I first tried Quicklean-S and I have been pondering how to write this review without it sounding like a cheesey infomercial because it really is a fabulous product.
The first thing I did when I was handed the shaker to review was read the label. I wasn't reading for what it could do but rather the warnings of what it shouldn't be used on. I was surprised to see no warnings just a long list of recommended uses. Finally a cleaner I can use on metals, glass, plastic basically any hard surface (although wood isn't mentioned).
The first thing I attempted to clean with the Quicklean-S was my oven. I am getting a new kitchen and with it a new oven shortly so keeping it looking like new is not a priority. Other than a wipe over with a dish cloth each night it had been neglected. Some areas like the top of the door were brown from grease and looked disgusting. The worst parts came clean very quickly simply by using the powder on a damp cloth. Some areas needed a scouring pad but I found the brown marks were left in the deeper scratches.
I have been putting off cleaning out the microwave hoping that my husband would do it but after less than 5 minutes with the powder and a damp cloth it was like new. I don't need to be embarrassed about it any more. Every time I open the microwave now I smile rather than cringe.
I also found that it was a fabulous nail polish remover. I had some glitter polish that my regular polish remover just would not remove so I had painted over it in another colour. When I was cleaning the kitchen I discovered that my nail polish was just peeling off. Thankfully I had planned on removing my polish once I had finished my chores but if you want to save your beautiful nails it would pay to wear gloves.
When I found out the price I thought it was a expensive but a little bit does go a long way. It also replaces the need for lots of different cleaners as it is so versatile. The shaker is designed so that only a small amount comes out at a time so there is no waste. I will definitely be making this my first choice in cleaning products both for the everyday jobs and the tough ones that I've been putting off forever.
