granite bench top & BBQ cleaning

I have to start off by saying that this stuff is fantastic! I was originally going to give my oven and a few of my oven dishes a good clean before we moved out but the review product didn't quite arrive in time and the new house we moved into already had a clean oven (who on earth has a clean oven!).
So, while trying to rack my brain as to what to clean to be able to review Quickleen-S I happened to see some rust marks on the bench which apparently had always been there and no one had been able to remove them yet so I decided that this would be the perfect thing to test this out on!
I followed the directions on the packet and applied a sprinkle to marks on the bench and rubbed it in with a damp cloth. With just a few wipes I could see the Quickleen-S start to work and the first ring had almost disappeared. I applied more powder to the next ring and kept on rubbing and within 5 minutes all rings had gone and you wouldn't even be able to guess where they were.
After my hubby got home we decided that we should give it a go on the BBQ plate. In the 6 years that we've owned this BBQ we haven't once given the plate a proper clean, we usually just wipe off the excess food and call it good. This plate required quite a bit more powder and elbow grease but it still did a great job and the results are really amazing.
The only thing I would really like changed on this product is the lid. It has a sort of sprinkle type top with holes in it which I think is designed to make sure you don't pour too much out at one time but with cleaning the BBQ I found that it clumped up quite a bit and it was hard to get anything out so personally I would have preferred a pour type lid, I think that would be much easier to use and still help make sure people only used a small amount at a time.
I'm not going to say that I really enjoyed using this product because to be honest I really don't enjoy cleaning but if I have to clean then this is the product that I'd want to use. Being able to get the results that I hoped for without too much effort is great and the fact that it is non toxic and can be used in a multitude of places is a huge bonus.
It is a little pricey but I'd say it's definitely worth the money and if you've tried everything else and nothing worked then definitely give Quickleen-S a go and be amazed!
