I have been using Mr Sheen for years and years - its a very traditional polish that has been around for years. Some of my earliest memories have been watching my Mother and Grandmother polish - dusting with their yellow dusters and the familiar red tin. But is the polish any good. Yes of course it is otherwise it wouldn't be a market leader. Over the years the formula has changed, it is no longer as rich as it once was and it's now anti-static. Mr Sheen calls it dust guard but what it means to us is that the dust that you have so carefully removed from your furniture doesn't automatically settle back down again. I think it works. I don't seem to spend as much time polishing furniture as my parents had to. I also think it is good that my Mr Sheen can polish everything I need it to including around the bottom of my television to my wooden table. It also smells incredible - memories in a can. If you have never smelt Mr Sheen before it is worth while buying a can just for the scent alone. In fact I have been known to just have a quick spray when family have come to refresh the 'I've just cleaned smell' but I won't tell if you don't. This polish does have a very distinct smell and it is one that is as unique as it's red can. A little goes a very long way, so its an economical purchase as well.
Dusting and Polishing really gets on my nerves, it's a job that I really don't like doing but if I don't do it, it wont get done. So I have to get my act together with cloth and polish at the ready, I tend to use Mr. Sheen, I don't know why I choose this polish in particular, I guess it's because it's what my mum used to use.
Cleans and shines wood, glass, mirrors, paintwork, tiles and enamel fast. Removes dust, fingerprints, and smudges without smearing. Contains anti-static dust guard which works to prevent static build up on modern surfaces and helps keep dust away for longer. Proven on vertical plastic surfaces and TV screens. Longer lasting fragrance helps keep your home smelling just polished for longer.
~Mr. Sheen Furniture Polish Anti-Static~
Like I already mentioned, I buy Mr. Sheen polish, probably because my mum used it when I was younger. The product comes in a tall red and silver shiny spray can, topped with a red plastic push on lid. I have used this polish for years as I like the fragrance of this polish which leaves the room in which I have just been polishing smell clean and well....just polished, I guess their claim of this is true because it does do as they say, at least I think so. I shake the can of polish before use then I spray the polish onto the surface I'm cleaning and I hold the can 10 inches or so away from the surface I'm spraying, then using a soft, clean dry cloth or duster I wipe the spray around the surface before I polish the surface up to a nice shine. I find this Mr. Sheen does a good job of soaking in making it easy to buff up to a nice shine. It works especially well on my fireplace, I love how the wood shines once I've polished it up. It's also good on my mirrors, they usually come up looking smudge free and very shiny.
So, although polishing is not one of my favorite jobs, I do usually feel good about how nice everywhere looks once I've finished. The pleasant fragrance of the polish lingers for quite a while which pleases me. I think I stick with this polish because it's original and not fragranced with lots of other fancy scents. In my opinion furniture polish should smell as such and not like an over powering air fresher.
I have had this product on my skin and can safely say I suffered no adverse effects from the product touching my skin.
~Warnings and precautions~
First and foremost Keep this product out of the reach of children.
Do not use on floors, inside of shower trays as the high gloss could be dangerous.
I have copied the following from the back of the can, I don't usually do this in my reviews, but I have only done so this time because the product is in a can and I think it's important information that people should be aware of because, I guess that not everyone will sit and read all the small print on a product such as this.
Use only as instructed on the can as intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal. The container is pressurized so remember to protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 degrees. Extremes of temperature can occur in cars, near ovens and fireplaces. Do not place in contact with hot surfaces or near naked flames. Do not pierce or burn the can even after use. Do not spray on a naked flame, onto or near fire or any incandescent material such as an electric fire, keep away from sources of ignition.
Details of what this polish contains can be found on any website where you may wish to purchase.
Mr. Sheen Furniture Polish Anti-Static can be picked up from most supermarkets and indeed online, a 300 ml can is currently selling for just £1.00 in Tesco, Asda and Sainsburys at the moment.
4 Stars then for Mr. Sheen Furniture Polish Anti-Static, I'm happy with it but it's probably not the best polish out there.
Thank you for reading my review which may also be posted on other sites.
I don't exactly mind cleaning but I can certainly think of better things to do with my time (writing for Dooyoo being one of them!) I'm therefore continually on the look out to make my life easier although I'll be the first to admit that I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to shopping for cleaning products and will buy something if it catches my eye regardless of whether or not I need it at the time! I never quite realized how bad this had gotten till I looked through the cupboard for things to review and found about five versions of furniture polish! One of which was this - Mr Sheen furniture polish.
Most people will be aware of the use of polish for wooden surfaces and (if you're anything like me) then TV and even computer screens, but this polish goes one step further and claims to be effective on wood, glass, plastic, mirrors, paintwork, tiles and enamel.
Mr. Sheen Says...
Mr. Sheen seems incredibly proud of this product. Along with the claims above about the surfaces on which this will work, it also claims to remove dust, fingerprints and smudges without smearing. Apparently it also contains an anti-static dustguard. This means that this polish should prevent static build up and keep dust away for longer. It is worth noting however, that it only claims to prevent static build up on modern surfaces and it tells me that this has been "proven to work on vertical plastic surfaces and TV screens", no mention of horizontal surfaces or vertical surfaces made of other materials.
According to Mr. Sheen this polish also contains a longer lasting fragrance to ensure your house smells "just polished for longer"
This product comes in two scents - original and spring fresh. I own the original version and so I can't say how the spring fresh smells or works and therefore for the rest of this review assume I am talking about the original version.
The top of the spray is ribbed allowing plenty of grip, which means that your finger doesn't slip off this during use. The spray button is easy to press and releases a fine mist across the surface you are trying to clean. The directions say to spray this 23cm away from the surface you are trying to clean, however I have never measured this and my guess at distances has never been very good! It's pretty easy to tell if you're not close enough though as it won't reach, too close and you get a visibly thicker layer then you need so it's easy to tell if you're about the right distance.
After this has been sprayed on it leaves a thin transparent layer which you then just need to wipe off with a clean cloth. This is easy and has presented very few problems. The only problems I have found with this is when using it on computer and TV screens, the polish tends to collect around the sides however this can be fairly easily removed it just takes a little bit more work then other areas.
I have used this polish on windows, my tablet computer, wood surfaces and TV and computer screens and even my laptop keyboard! On all of these surfaces it's always cleaned them without any problems, removed fingerprints from the screens and brought out a shine to all kinds of materials. I have occasionally noticed a little bit of smearing on the edges of my TV screen however this doesn't occur on anything else and they are easily removed once I try to remove them so I'm assuming this is simply due to me not noticing them when I tried to clean it the first time; other then this, the polish leaves no other marks after use.
I would say that after polishing there is noticeably less dust collection for at least the next 2-3 days so I would say that this claim is correct. Although I didn't notice any static build up on any of the surfaces I polished I can't say that I noticed any before using this anyway so it's hard to say whether or not this is working in respect of this. Maybe it's something polishes do anyway and it's just been explicitly noted on this can?
As I said above I own and use the original fragrance which smells like any other furniture polish. However, despite claiming that the scent lingers I really haven't found this to be the case at all - in fact, after use the scent is barely noticeable. This is a bit of a shame since I love the smell of furniture polish but then maybe the spring fresh will linger a little longer as this will have an added scent.
The only real problem I have found with this is that the spray part itself ends up a little messy as white residue from the spray tends to build up there. This doesn't affect the way the can sprays at all, just looks a little messy.
As with any product of this nature this comes with several warnings. These are: this should not be used on antique or fine furniture, instead you should use a wax paste polish. It should also not be used on baths, showers or floors as the high shine will make them slippery and therefore dangerous.
The container is pressurised and therefore should be stored below 50 degrees and out of direct sunlight. You should not pierce or burn the contained even after use and the polish should be kept away from naked flames or incandescent materials. Finally, as with all cleaning products this should be kept out the reach of children.
Price, Availability And Recommendation
I buy my 300ml can from my corner shop for £1.20 I have also occasionally seen it in ASDA's although it doesn't seem to show online for me to get prices. This is also available on Amazon costing £6.73 for 2 450ml cans so as you can see it's worth shopping around to try and get the best price - can sizes also seem to vary depending on where you buy them from.
I would recommend this product, I'm docking a star due to the mess around the spray and the lack of lingering scent but other then those minor faults it does what it says on the tin. It cleans well on a variety of different surfaces and does appear to keep the dust away for a few days even if the other claims are difficult for me to quantify.
Firstly I must admit, I have a slight OCD for polishing. I hate dust and I hate even more than my fiance has furnished our home (the deal was he picks the furniture, I pick the sofa) in high-gloss surfaces. Black high-gloss surfaces. I also have two cats that love nothing more than to leave their hairs all over my surfaces. So my polish of choice has to work, smell great and last ages!
Mr Sheen is my current favourite polish and I buy a different smell every time. The one I have at the moment is the anti-static version, but I've pretty much tried them all and keep coming back to the brand. At around £1.30 per bottle I think it's pretty good value for money too.
I find the cleaning power to be excellent; I don't have to spray a lot for it to clean a whole surface. For most surfaces I spray it directly on to the surface but for awkward, weirdly-shaped ones I spray it on my duster. I like all the scents in this range and don't find any of them too overpowering, even with my excessive use! On the contrary, they make the room smell good.
I would recommend this polish to anyone and it will be my brand of choice for the foreseeable future.
Mr Sheen is one of the polishes we have used over many years on and off to clean, polish and maintain all sorts of items around the home. I have been using Mr Sheen polish for so long, that I even remember the adverts that first came out with Mr Sheen himself flying about the home whizzing through the polishing at the speed of light.
The thing about buying Mr Sheen is that you tend to almost not mind it being a bit more expensive by a few pennies as it has such a good cleaning and polishing ability that works so very well around the home. My favorite Mr Sheen product has to be the original aroma version, which gives a very nice just cleaned smell to everything it touches.
Although I have tried a large number of polishes over the years this one is amongst the favorites. It sprays on in a thick but not too gloopy textured slightly foamy liquid that is easy to polish to a nice gleaming shine. The polish being an anti static one means that I can use it on items around the home and not worry that they will attract dust and grime that clings and doesn't want to be removed.
Having used the polish on all types of surfaces I can say that its good for use on most wood surfaces and brings up a nice natural looking sheen. It also works well on glass, plastic and even polishes leather settees up a treat. Its aroma is very pleasant and distinctive and gives a nice light fresh smell to everything it touches.
This is such a nice product that works so very well, that I would recommend it for all sorts of jobs around the home. I have even found that it can be used when you have cleaned stainless steel hobs and cooker fronts to give them a light but effective smudge free, smooth clean finish.
There are many other polishes on the market that you can buy but every now and then you can't beat a bit of Mr Sheen. As with any leading brands that do cost a little more to buy, its best to wait for this to be on an offer or deal to get the best value for money from it.
The only down side I have ever encountered is the odd blocked spray head, but that can be easily remedied by clearing it with a pin head. Other than that Mr Sheen is a winner, so gets a big 5 stars as a good quality household product.
For my sins I have, over the years collected dark wood furniture. I love the look but oh dear the polishing involved is something else and being at work all day I do not have the time to spend hours trying to remove dust and give it all a good polish. Although there are cheaper products on the market my opinion is that they are not of the same standard or quality. Mr Sheen claims that it has an anti static additive that helps prevent the build up of dust, I have found this to be true and with dark wood furniture it is so easy to spot the build up of dust, especially on sunny days. But what I realy like about Mr Sheen furniture polish is the smell, the room smells so fresh when I have finished polishing. I have even taken to spaying a little on the radiators in the winter, its better than an air freshener.
I love the smell of this polish! It always makes a room smell cleaned to me!
Comes in a 300ml spray can that is mostly red and white with the Mr Shenn character displayed. It has a lid that keeps the nozzle lean and its operated by pushing down on the nozzle.
Shake thoroughly before use. Hold the can upright about 9inches from the surface you want to polish. Spray a light coating and polish with a soft dry cloth straight away. For difficult arears spray directly onto a dry cloth and use some elbow grease!
This spray can be used on metal, wood, glass and plastic. Never use on unsealed or waxed wooden surfaces and for antiques check with a specialist
You can get this in all supermarkets and its normally the brand of choice in most corner shops. I bought my in asda this week for £1
I love the smell, it has a light waxy smell, I don't find this polish smears as easily as other brands, you really have to over spray the surface a lot to have smears. I normally have a can for about 6 weeks, and I seriously blitz my flat every weekend. It claims to have dustguard and stain guard properties, as I have never used anything else I can't really comment on whether these guard properties work, however I can say week to week I never have much dust to collect
My top tip - spray the hole that your internal doors catch into - when people open the door they get a wiff of fresh polish!
I always use Mr Sheen Multi Surface Polish now after trying out lots of other brands - I am not fussy with smells but I do I like the citrus fragrance best, the spray also comes in original, oriental blossom and spring fresh, which all also smell very nice.
You can use Mr Sheen on metal, wood, glass and plastic and it says on the can that the polish cleans, shines, protects and fragrances. The polish has unique dust and stain guard properties.
The polish comes in a 300ml aerosol spray can which is mainly red and yellow in colour and has the famous Mr Sheen man zooming round in his duster aeroplane on it.
I find that a can usually lasts me around a month which I think is very good as I use it to polish a lot of stuff around the house.
One of the few household jobs that I actually do not mind doing is the polishing and I find using Mr Sheen makes it super easy and fast. I usually do the polishing once or twice a week and would definatley agree that the dust guard keeps the dust away a lot longer than other brands I have tried.
The main reasons I like Mr Sheen so much are I find the fragrance lasts for ages, it reduces the amount of dusting I do and it does not leave smears on things. I have a huge Ikea entertainment storage unit in my lounge which has shiny, red doors on it - if I use anything other than Mr Sheen on it, it is left with nasty looking smears all over which take ages to clean off!
I also use this spray on my wooden furniture, mirrors, windows and doors and it does a brilliant job on them leaving them clean, smear free and smelling lovely and fresh, it is also excellent for removing greasy or sticky handprints which the kids like to leave all round the house on just about everything!
Mr Sheen Multi Surface Polish is widely available with an RRP of £1.40 but it is just £1 in Asda and Tesco at the moment
This polish always stands out in the cleaning isles of shops like Tesco, so I always get this one, epically as I think it does the best job.
The polish comes in a large 300ml aerosol can. It also has a red lid on top, the only problem with that is that it's not very strong and sometimes cracks. The can is also easy to spray, and each time lets out a generous amount. It also comes in a selection of smells such as, original, citrus and spring fresh. They all smell nice and fresh, my favourite however is original.
The polish does a really good job, it cleans, shines, protects and fragrances. It does a great job doing all of these things. I find that the polish picks up all the dust and dirt easily, meaning there is less work to do for you as the polish does the job for you.
This product is really reasonably prices especially for the length of time it lasts for. Lots of pound shops often stock this product, so you can get it really cheap.
I would really recommend this product as it does a fantastic job.
My day job is working in an office, but when I clock out at five I then turn into the office cleaner.
As a cleaner I tend to polish a lot so I buy Mr Sheen Multi Surface Furniture Polish. According to the can it can be used on metal, wood, glass and plastic, but I mainly use it on wood and occasionally on glass. I have got to say after I have used it on wood it certainly leaves it looking shiny and the office smelling clean and fresh, even the next day when everyone comes into the office they comment on how fresh and clean the office looks and smells (that is due to the polish not my excellent cleaning skills believe me).
Mr Sheen comes in a 300ml aerosol can which makes it spray evenly over the surface you want to clean. It comes in a variety of fragrances but the only ones I have used are the Spring Fresh and Original and I can say they both smell extremely nice, and even though I don't work in a big office block I can still say that one can last for ages.
I have also on occasions used Mr Sheen on the mirrors which is not my favourite job, I sometimes wonder what people do to get them so dirty. It removes all dirty marks and smears that people have left almost instantly, and again like it says on the can it leaves a smear free shine.
I buy my cleaning supplies for work at our local Asda supermarket and the price for Mr Sheen at the moment is £1.00 rollback from £1.40 which I think is a really good price for what you are getting and also for how long it lasts.
The well know Red Aerosol can with the little man flying his aeroplane should be easy to spot on supermarket shelves and because the Mr Sheen range has been around for some time you know it is a brand you can trust.
I like this polish so much that I have started buying it for home too and I really like the clean freshness it leaves.
Mr Sheen Furniture Polish Anti-static
Description: Furniture polish / Aerosol spray / Advanced anti-static dust guard.
I think that as with most people, I view housework as a necessary evil. I don't enjoy it but I do enjoy living in a clean and tidy house so until I win the lottery and can afford someone to clean it for me, that means that it is up to me to keep it looking nice! Dusting is quite an easy chore and not one that I particularly mind doing, I find that using a decent furniture polish helps and that is why I buy Mr Sheen.
I paid just £1 for my 300ml can of Mr Sheen from Poundland, normally this polish retails for around £1.40 a tin and can be picked up in most supermarkets.
You have probably seen the adverts for this polish, with the catchy jingle "Mr Sheen shines umpteen things clean" or seen it on shelves, even if you haven't used it. It comes in a matte red tin with a red plastic lid and the Mr Sheen logo (a bloke with a moustache - presumably Mr Sheen himself, flying an aeroplane while dusting things on the way past!) on the front.
This polish comes uses an aerosol to allow a thin spreading onto surfaces which you then polish off. It claims to be anti static so should also prevent dust from building up quickly.
It has a slightly citrusy scent along with that familiar furniture polish smell and though it isn't overpowering, you can certainly smell that you have dusted once you have used it. I like that the scent doesn't dominate the room, which is one of the reasons that I use this brand.
The polish helps my surfaces to look clean and shiny and it works especially well on wood, helping it to really gleam.
The polish is easy to use and helps you to dust a variety of surfaces (check the tin for full details). It smells fresh and helps to prevent dust from building up again, hopefully making it easy to do the dusting next time round. If you haven't tried it already then give it a shot and see what you think.
Highly recommend that you try this polish, especially if you can pick it up in Poundland!
I hate cleaning, I mean come on in all honesty who actually likes it - what I do like however is a clean house lol! I like one which smells of all sorts of fresh fragrances after a thorough cleanse you know when you can actually smell the cleanliness around your home. My cupboard under my sink contains allsorts of goodies that enable me to produce fantastic results in my house, along with some elbow grease of course, Mr Sheen Polish being one of these many goodies!
I have the Original Mr Sheen, although to be perfectly honest I havn't took any notice of any others. The original version comes in a tall 400ml red tin with a red plastic cap. It tells me it's Mr Sheen Multi Surface Polish and it 'cleans shines and protects. It can be used on Metal Wood and glass and it apparently has a long lasting fragrance. I'm also told on the tin that this polish has dustguard and stainguard properties!
The anti static dustguard is meant to help keep dust away for longer and the stainguard is to help prevent every day stains that often occur.
The polish does have a lovely scent to it, a freshly fragranced forest sort of scent, all homely and warm.
Before using the polish you need to shake the tin and you also need to hold it roughly 9cm's away from the surface. It sprays out a fine mist that lands on the surface as a white bubbly foam, nothing over the top and frothy though and the bubbles soon die down into a watery substance.
Once you've sprayed it onto your surfaces you simply wipe over your surface which does wipe off any dust already there and leaves a clean shine on the wiped over surface. I usually hoover after polishing as I find polishing wipes off dust and of course the duster doesn't catch every speck of dust and alot does end up on your floor and carpets. Once your surface has this protective gleam after polishing it does catch dust, but not as much as it would if it didnt have the polish sprayed on it, I believe this is down to the anti static property within the polish.
I'm impressed with this polish as it is one of the only polishes I've used that has completely rid dust, finger tip marks and any smudges, left a glamourous gleam on many surfaces and actually seems like it's protecting some of my furniture. It does create a clean and homely scent around my rooms too - so mums and dads if you do ask your kids to polish their rooms believe me you will know if they have or not just see if you can smell that smell and look out for that stunning shine!
The scent for me is hard to describe but in my opinion it is a scent that would suit anybody, it's not floral and girly yet it's not heavy and masculine, it just to me seems homely, warmth, cosy and clean - what a strange way to describe a scent!? It does surprisingly last quite a while too and lingers around my rooms.
Try not to use too much though as the duster will collect the polish and will just end up getting wet creating more smudges and smears than was there in the first place - I'm talking from experience here!
Start off with a clean duster and you can really see the results on your cloth afterwards, especially if you've gotten into those nooks and crannys that have been forgotten about. Your mustard coloured cloth will soon become black and dusty.
I feel confident enough to use this on so many surfaces unlike other brands of polish. I have used it to polish my tv screens, computer screens, glass tables and even my mirrors - which actually doesn't leave any annoying smears and smudges!
Word of warning though if you do have tiled or laminated flooring be careful not to drip or spray it onto your floors as it does become extremely slippery instantly and cause nasty accidents.
Since the start of the credit crunch/recession I've made a conscious effort to try & cut down on our food & household bills by trying several cheaper brands here & there. This 'downsizing' exercise has resulted in my making a few mistakes but also I've been pleasantly surprised by some of the cheapo products including Tesco Value furniture polish but have to admit I've now gone back to buying Mr Sheen's.
We have a few items of furniture which are precious to me as I inherited then from my late parents. These include a large low coffee table , stackable cube bookshelves & a kitchen table which were handcrafted in West Africa & given to my parents as a wedding present when they went there to work.
The quality of wood & the craftsmanship of each piece makes them in my opinion, irreplaceable & I feel they deserve to be treated with respect. I have therefore been determined to treat each item to a beeswax treatment once a year plus give them a good polish with Mr Sheen Furniture Polish each week.
I've found this to be the best polish which is easily available though must admit I use cheaper stuff on the rest of the furniture.
I like everything about this spray including it's well-designed dispenser, the fragrances ( I prefer the Original but also like the Jasmine) & the finished shine it gives. I also think it's good value for money - around £1.40 for 300ml - as you only need to use a little each time. I've found that it doesn't smear & you don't have to rub it into the furniture too hard to get that 'just polished' look.
As far as I can tell it also lives up to its claim that it is anti-static as I haven't experienced any static despite all items being used constantly.
As with all aerosol sprays care has to be taken when using but cautions are provided, along with directions for use & ingredients on the reverse of the can.
I'd recommend Mr Sheen Furniture Polish because of the good design, ease of use, lovely 'just polished' smell & the consistently good results it gives.
Mr Sheen comes in a 300ml red metallic canistor with a red top for £1.35.
This product has stood the test of time and has the reputation for being a superb product.
I have used a number of polishes over the years, especially if they have been on offer, but I always seem to come back to this one.
It's easy to use - just shake the can, spray the mist of polish and wipe off. No mess, no streaks, just a fresh clean polished smell. It can be used on most surfaces as you would expect. I use it on my stainless steel cooker hood and trim on the cooker to give it that extra clean shiny look. I also use it on my glass topped tables to remove dust and fingerprints. However, this product is fantastic at cleaning mirrors, especially after the kids have put their sticky fingers on the glass. Just spray and wipe off. It comes in 4 different fragrances and can be bought in wipes as well, but I prefer the original spray can.
Mr Sheen is quite possibly the most well-known brand of furniture polish - and it's reputation is deserved.
It's best points include:
* Safe on a variety of surfaces - I've used it on wood, plastic, glass and ceramic tiles with no problems - and it also claims to be safe on stainless steel, mirrors, paintwork and enamel.
* A pleasant smell - not overpowering but leaves your room smelling clean and fresh
* A little goes a long way so while it's not the cheapest product, it will last a long time. I use it with a traditional yellow duster and find that a couple of squirts of this stuff will clean a medium-sized table with no problems.
* It keeps dust away for a good while after you've cleaned - I normally dust about once a week and rarely notice dust collecting on furniture after I've cleaned it with Mr Sheen.
Overall, this is a great brand of furniture polish - easy to use, gets the job done, and as you only need a little of it it's a cost-effective product.
