Since the nice weather is upon us, it is nice to be able to actually see out my windows to enjoy the sunshine. Have to wipe away the layers of winter and let the sun shine in...
So over the past month I have been trying 3 different products for all around general household cleaning. Some promise, no streaks, others to make your job of cleaning faster...now if they promised to do it for me, that you definitely me a BUY!!!
This is what is on their web site---
Well I have to say for all my wood in the house, this was great. It also did a good job on the electronics. But I was not thrilled with it on glass or steel. It did streak and I had to get rid of the streaks with another cleaner...So if you have wood furniture, electronics, counter tops (not granite) then I would say it is a BUY..but as far as living up to the claim of ALL the surfaces, not so much! It does have a really pleasant smell.
Next I tried Clorox Green Works Surface Cleaner, this is what their website says---
Clean your home without leaving anything behind-like harsh chemical fumes or residue. Our dermatologist-tested glass & surface cleaner is the natural way to get a streak-free clean. The plant and mineral-based ingredients cut through filmy residue because it cleans with the power you'd expect from Clorox. Keeping your home clean for your family.
This was my least favorite of the 3 and I was really hoping it would be great. I do love a good GREEN product, but this one is not. It really left streaks and a film on everything. It also did not remove smudges or grease very well at all. I am not going to give up the hunt for good green cleaners that don't cost more than what you are trying to clean. If anyone knows of any I would love to hear from you!!! This for me was a BROWSE...
he third cleaner I tried was good old fashioned vinegar and water. I went back in time to this cleaner because my two youngest kids are running and crawling around putting everything in their mouths..Or just licking things for that matter...So I got an old spray bottle and my label maker and created my potion!!! And it was by far the best of all the cleaners...except on Stainless Steel...not so good. But for everything else it left a streak free, non-greasy shine on everything. And I had no worries of harsh chemicals being left behind. The only draw back is that the scent is really not all that pleasant. After a while my house started to smell like a fry truck...This for me is a big BUY...also the most eco and wallet friendly!!!
