Cilit Bang Power Cleaner Degreaser
Advantages: Easy to use and does the job
Not being loyal to any particular brand but normally opting to what is on offer last time I needed kitchen cleaner Cilit Bang caught my eye, maybe if was the purple bottle, hmm. Cilit Bang has a large number of products available and I opted for the Cilit Bang Power Cleaner Degreaser in the hope that all I will ever have to do is spray and wipe, no elbow grease involved and my kitchen will be sparkling.
So according to Cilit Bang my bottle of cleaner will do the following "cut through all kinds of grease and grime to leave sparkling results throughout your home". OK Cilit Bang a challenge has been set the gauntlet thrown down and my cooker hood is in need of a good scrub, can they meet the challenge, lets find out.
Cleaning my kitchen I generally start with the work surfaces, move to cupboard doors and then to the hob, last but not least the cooker hood who gets the least attention and only take it apart when the filter needs changing to clean the inside of the cover - shame on me.
Cilit Bang is easy to use and comes in the standard spray gun topped bottle that the majority of manufacturers go for these days and mine is a lovely green colour that really does not sit well with the purple. The nozzle is the twist type with two settings, on and off so really simple and the words are slightly indented into the nozzle but not really enough to assist somebody with visual impairment.
When you spray Cilit Bang is comes out with a foam like appearance and you can see the bubbles disappearing as the product gets to work on your greasy hob or cooker hood, I left mine for a bit and wiped over with a sponge and was pleasantly surprised to see that the this product really does do what it says on the tin, no lies and the grime is just wiped away from my kitchen surfaces and hob.
The biggest challenge of all, we all know how greasy filter cover gets and the filter itself and when I replace the filter in my cooker hood I like to give the whole cover a good clean and this normally involves a bit of elbow grease. Not with Cilit Brang, spray, leave a minute max and wipe and you are done, if it is a large surface then if may take you a couple of sprays to be sure you have removed all the grease right up to the edges and into the corners.
The smell - not pleasant but then again it does not pretend to be scented with Lemon or flowers from a meadow and it does have that chemical aroma to it which if you used a lot may irritate the back of the throat and sinus passages but its not as strong as some other brands.
Over all this is one item I will buy again as it does the job and the chemical smell, whilst there, is not overpowering to the point where you can taste it.
It is worth noting that this product is not suitable for the following:-
Hot or damaged surfaces.
Summary: A good household cleaner.
