Cif Multi-Purpose Actifizz Lemon Spray
Advantages: effective, works quickly, lasts well, smell
Disadvantages: price compared to other cleaners
Cif is a popular range of cleaning products produced by Unilever.
The Actifizz Multipurpose cleaner is available in two fragrances - lemon and ocean. I will be discussing the lemon cleaner.
This multipurpose cleaner is suitable for use around the home including bathroom and kitchen surfaces. It promises to eliminate 'everyday dirt' from surfaces and leave them clean and shiny. This cleaner features an 'actifizz' formula which penetrates dirt fast, allowing it to be quickly wiped away with a cloth.
Like most multipurpose cleaners, Actifizz is presented in a well designed, yellow bottle. The bottle is transparent and features a spray top with an on/off twist nozzle. Any required product information and recommended usage images are printed on the bottle.
A 750ml bottle retails at around £2.00 - £2.75. Asda and Tesco both stock this cleaner.
I like to try new cleaners when I spot them on offer. I quite like the Cif brand so when I spotted a bottle of Actifizz for £1.37 in Tesco recently, I snapped it up. I rarely pay full price for cleaners hence why I buy different brands. I felt £1.37 for a bargain price for 750ml. I have been using this for a few weeks (and also using up a few other bottles I have) and will definitely repurchase when it is on offer!
The bottle is very easy to hold and spray. The first time I used this spray, I think I overdone it as I didn't expect how effective it was going to be! A quick spray results in a foamy liquid being sprayed over quite a large area. You really do not need much of this spray on each surface as a little goes a long way - very cost effective in the long run! As soon as the liquid makes contact with a surface, it fizzes away and this is very evident. It doesn't simply sit on the surface like most cleaners and it was quite a novelty at first!
This spray is highly scented and possibly moreso than many cleaners I have used. It has a very zingy lemon scent which is fresh but a little overpowering especially if I am using it in my small bathroom. I would recommend opening the windows when using this cleaning spray. I mainly use this in my kitchen on the work tops, around the sink area and on the hob. I occasionally use it in my bathroom in the shower and around my sink taps.
Performance wise, this spray is excellent. With some cleaning sprays, the surfaces need to be sprayed and left the cleaner left to work for sometime. I can pretty much wipe away this cleaner within seconds of spraying it. I use a slightly damp cloth to wipe over the surfaces and any food marks or soap/handwash scum wipe away effortlessly leaving a beautifully clean surface.
This spray works wonders on my hob. At the weekend, my fiance made spaghetti bolonaise and made quite mess. I didn't realise until later than evening and the splashes were practically stuck on. I sprayed some of this on and it fizzled away into the food splashes. After 10 seconds, every mark came off with a quick wipe - very impressed as I didn't need to put much effort in at all. I normally buff the surfaces with a dry cloth after wiping them and this brings the surfaces up shiny and the taps come up sparkly which I like. The lemon scent calms down a little and leaves the kitchen/bathroom smelling fresh and clean.
This spray is excellent - it performs so well. I don't mind using a regular cleaner to freshen up my surfaces but for dried on spills of food, this is perfect as it fizzies into action and takes care of the stains. My bottle is lasting incredibly well despite regular use and this is one of the best cleaning sprays I have used recently so I will buy it again. I didn't experience any irritation to my sensitive skin.
Thanks for reading :)
