Disadvantages: Can Damage Clothes (Bleach)
Cilit Bang is a universal degreaser power cleaner. Cilit Bang is a slightly newer product if you compare it to some longer running cleaning products, but it is quite revolutionary and really does work well. As their slogan says 'BANG and the dirt is gone', it's how I feel every time I use it. There are a few different varieties of the product, but I will be reviewing the power cleaner degreaser, which is used on tough stains such as burnt-on grease and oily stains.
The product comes in a purple bottle, which is quite unique and eye-catching. The label across the front has the Cilit Bang logo, which looks like it's exploding from the bottle, to bring emphasis on the onomatopoeic 'bang'. The label has a green border with a pink and white design inside, so it's all quite unique and startling. The bottle is 750ml large and will set you back around £3.20, however it does last a long time as this powerful degreaser will combat stains very well so only a little has to be applied. The bright green top actually forms a rather horrible looking contrast with the rest of the bottle, but you certainly won't miss it on a shelf and when it's in your cleaning cupboard!
As one of the most powerful products from Cilit Bang, it is to be used only on the toughest stains. For example, if you have just made a fry up for breakfast and the hob is in a greasy state, this product will have it sparkling clean in no time - whether it's a gas hob or electric one. It cuts through the grease and can be wiped away, leaving it in great condition. Another example is when you get grease on your overhead extractor hood for your hob - once in a while, some Cilit Bang will have it sparkling clean in no time. As well as these tougher jobs, this product can also be used on tiles, worktops and surfaces, doors, cupboards and grills. It can even be used on garden furniture (metal) to remove some tough stains. It may not be used on halogen hobs, marble or wood - presumably because it is too powerful for these and may be damaging.
The product works really well - you simply switch the nozzle to 'On' and use the large trigger to spray out. A good volume of the stuff will be sprayed out for every pull of the trigger, so for some stains you may just need one trigger's worth. If you need a smaller amount, you can pull the trigger with less force and some solution will ooze out. The trigger mechanism works well and has never failed on me. You will need a sponge or cloth to wipe away the stain - some will come out easier but others may require some scrubbing. This product does it's best to minimize scrubbing on tough stains however.
The solution is of a light colour with a slight green appearance. It comes out as a liquid spray but with a few bubbles too - it's quite a thick liquid and this helps it get through those tough stains. It smells unique to other cleaning products - very powerful and distinct - you can certainly smell it when it's in use. However, it has a pleasant smell and doesn't smell bad. You are recommended to go over with water once you have cleaned with this product to clean away any residue as it may be damaging. Overall, it's an excellent product and unique in the way it destroys tough stains with little difficulty.
