“ Brand: Mr Sheen / Type: Polish / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
I love this product. So much so I am always disappointed if they don't have the spring fresh fragrance in store when I go shopping.
Mr Sheen, spring fresh is a multi surface polish which can be used on wood, metal glass and plastic.
The winner for me though is the smell. To be honest I am no domestic goddess but with Mr Sheen I can pretend to be right?
Spray it around and it will banish any stinky whiffs including cigarette smoke. Not only does it get rid of stinky smells it also has a very pleasant aroma and your home will smell like its had a good spring clean. No ones gonna know you didn't actually do any dusting right? Well, that's what I keep telling myself.
However, on occasions when I do decide to dust I find it does the job nicely. It brings up my table tops and work surfaces shiny and new.
Okay, you may have guessed I am a tad lazy so I also use this product on my windows. It saves me fussing with buckets of water and vinegar. In saying that it can leave windows a little smeary compared with the old school method but I can put up with that for the sake of convenience.
Mr Sheen also do a spring meadow fragrance and the original version you can usually pick them up for £1.00 at most stores which I consider very reasonable however, the other fragrances do not compare to the spring fresh version.
Furniture polish is not just for the elderly lol give it a try your nostrils will thank you for it.
Just one word of warning if you have wood floors be careful when you spray it - if it gets on your floors they will be like an ice rink!
Dusting would be one of my less favourite jobs in the house, though every week or so the house needs a nice freshen up. I usually buy Mr Sheen polish because it is the best known and has a good reputation. I was shopping in Sainsburys recently and came across the Spring Fresh scented Mr Sheen Polish and decided to pick it up and try it out.
It is really easy to use this polish, you simply give it a shake, spray a little bit onto the surface you would like to dust while holding the can about 9 inches from the surface, then you use a dusting cloth to smooth over and shine up the surface. You can use this polish on wood, metal, glass or plastic around the house.
I think that the results that you get from using this polish are great, it can be used all around the house (except the bathroom). I find that when I dust with this polish that worktops and even the glass tables look and smell much cleaner and fresher, it is great for lifting dust and giving the worktops a good shine.
I really like the smell of this polish, it is named 'Spring Fresh' and definitely has a lovely fresh smell to it. What I like about this polish is that the smell isn't too overpowering, it just lingers nicely in the room for a while and makes it smell lovely and inviting.
You can buy this polish in most supermarkets, I bought mine in Sainburys for £1.33, this got me a 300ml bottle, which actually lasted quite a while, so I was happy with the value I got for my purchase.
Overall I think that this is a great polish, it smells nice, is easy to use and does not break the bank. Overall I would give this polish 5 out of 5 stars.

I've never been a lover of furniture polish. It's always been the smell that has put me off and kind of reminded me of a musty vinegar which left me wondering what the appeal was. I suppose I also always associated it with being quite an old fashioned product and not a smell that I wanted to encourage around my home. In the past I have always gone for modern products which contain antibacterial agents and up until trying this product, using furniture polish has never entered my head.
I first discovered Mr Sheen Springfresh when it was recommended to me by a friend who told me she used it all the time. It came up in conversation after I had my usual moan about the amount of cleaning products I buy, which I used for different chores around the house. My friend told me about Mr Sheen's multi-purpose capability and claimed she used it on most surfaces around her home. This surprised me. I had never noticed her home smelling 'polishy' and this intrigued me to give it a try.
I bought my can of Mr Sheen Springfresh from Tesco with 300ml costing £1.49. The can is a simple design with an aerosol dispenser and has the 'Mr Sheen Man' on the front. This variety shows the illustration of Mr Sheen flying his aeroplane leaving a green trail which reads 'Springfresh'. According to the packaging this polish will clean, shine and protect furniture whilst leaving a fresh uplifting aroma.
The can is easy to use with no fiddly open/close features that some cleaning products use. I was glad of this as it make the job of squirting and wiping with a cloth so simple. This product claims to be effective on numerous surfaces including glass, wood, plastic, mirrors, paintwork, tiles, enamel and stainless steel
I first tried this on wood and was astounded at how clean and shiny my furniture became. It left the wood a deep rich polished colour which I really liked. After further experiments with my polish I also found that it left paintwork looking clean and vibrant. I also noticed how the polish seemed to leave a professional looking finish to my furniture and how very little polish is needed to create this effect.
When sprayed this product leaves a protective guard on furniture which claims to reduce the amount of gathering dust between cleans. However I have to say I have not noticed any difference in my dust levels and didn't realise it was meant to do this until reading the can before writing this review. Needless to say this feature is not glaringly obvious and to me it still needs to prove itself on this score.
Another thing that I believe lets this product down is when used on smooth polished surfaces (such as glass, mirrors and ceramics), I found it had a tendency to leave streaky marks and a lot of elbow grease was needed to get rid of these. This left me thinking that Mr Sheen had given me more work to do than before I had started! This was really disappointing. I had hoped I had found a multi-purpose product that could tackle all my cleaning chores and would rid my cupboards of all its different cleaning products. It was sadly not meant to be.
Now for the important bit .....the smell....
Mr Sheen Springfresh claims to leave an uplifting fragrance in the home when cleaning. I found the initial smell quite pleasant but unfortunately the 'Springfresh' aroma only 'masks' the smell of polish rather than eliminates it. About half an hour after using this product, this aroma had gone leaving my home smelling...well a bit like musty vinegar!!!!
Although I liked the way my furniture looked after using it I don't think I'll be replacing this product when empty. However for people who like polish as a product, this one could be a good contender and worth a try for £1.49. Personally I intend to go back to my antibacterial cleaning agents as soon as possible.
Thank you for reading. This review may also appear on Ciao under the username of Supersweep.
As a child my siblings and I all had a rota for dusting and hoovering and I can remember using Mr Sheen furniture polish more than 20 years ago! It came as no surprise then that when I moved out I found myself buying a can of this to clean my furniture.
The polish comes in a distinctive red coloured can, with 300ml of the product and features the Mr Sheen character, dressed as always as a pilot, polishing away. It costs around £1.30 though can often be found on offer which is when I tend to stock up. The spray boats 4 in 1 functions - it claims to clean, shine, protect as well as fragrance the room. When I was growing up I seem to remember this coming in only one variety however in recent years fragrances have been added to the polish and the focus of this review is the Springfresh variety, which has a green streak running along the front, making it easy to spot on the shelf.
This multi-purpose polish is suitable for use on a variety of surfaces; wood, glass, plastic, stainless steel, mirrors, paintwork, tiles and enamel. I tend to use this mainly to clean wooden surfaces such as cupboard doors, the tv cabinet and window ledges but also for cleaning the telly.
To use I spray a little of this onto a clean cloth. The polish comes out as a white liquid. I then proceed to wipe the surface I need to clean. The spray can also be sprayed directly onto the surface being cleaned, though I think there is less waste when sprayed separately onto a cloth. With this spray a little really does go a long way and I can usually clean the tv and a couple of small tables with a couple of small squirts.
When using this I find that it doesn't irritate my skin if it comes into contact with the spray but if you have sensitive skin I would advise wearing gloves when using this.
The polish makes light work of removing dust and with a little elbow grease also wipes away more stubborn marks such as fingerprints and grime, leaving surfaces gleaming. The spray has a sweet smell that is quite light and pleasant though to me this smells almost the same as the original one! Once everything is polished the smell lingers for a while leaving a nice 'just cleaned' smell.
The product also claims to have a unique formula that contains 'Stainguard' to help protect against everyday stains (it has been tested by the manufacturers on wax crayons, candle wax and ketchup) and 'Dustguard' to help keep dust away for longer. I find that this keeps dust at bay for around a week, which is quite good in my opinion!
I have also tried to use this on mirrors and windows, as suggested on the back of the can. Whilst this spray is good for wooden surfaces, metals and plastics I find that it's a little difficult on glass and mirrors. Once on I find that it requires A LOT of elbow grease to get this to clean the surface as it tends to streak and most of my time is spent trying to get rid of these. - a good workout for my arms though! I now no longer use this to clean glass and mirrors, preferring to use Windowlene instead.
Overall then, I am really quite impressed with this spray. It cleans most surfaces effortlessly and keeps them clean, meaning that as someone who doesn't particularly enjoy cleaning, I don't have to bring it out too often! It's one that we've been using for many years and I'm sure many years to come. Recommended!
