Tesco Bathroom Cleaner
Disadvantages: Not very strong
These days I am trying out more and more supermarket brand products in an effort to cut down on my grocery bills. The latest own brand product to be bought, tried and of course reviewed is Tesco Bathroom Cleaner Spray.
The spray can be bought at Tesco and costs 80 pence for a 500 ml spray. This is quite a bit cheaper than its branded contemporaries. For example, a 500 ml Mr Muscle spray costs £1.35 and a Flash Guard spray costs £1.49. So it is a reasonable difference and if you get through a lot of bathroom cleaner then it will save you a few pounds in the long run.
The spray comes in a white bottle with a large bottom and a narrow neck leading up to the pump spray at the top. The bottle has a picture of a sparklingly clean bathroom on it. To me the bottle looks almost exactly the same as the Flash and the Mr Muscle cleaners and it doesn't seem to shout out 'cheap brand', so is certainly not embarrassing to keep on display in your bathroom if you so wish.
The spray promises to remove limescale, watermarks and soap scum. It is suitable for use on most enamel surfaces but should not be used on marble or wood. There are further warnings on the packaging, including all the normal directions to keep it out of the reach of children, etc.
Using the spray is very easy. You just turn the nozzle to the on position, spray onto the surface you wish to clean, leave it to work for a few seconds, and then wipe away with a damp sponge. Afterwards you should rinse the surface thoroughly.
I found the cleaner very simple to use but I found that the spray action is not very strong and you need to hold the bottle quite close to the surface. Also the cleaner does not seem to be as potent as my previous Flash spray and although it will remove stains, it requires more scrubbing and more repeat applications than the Flash spray did. It particularly struggled to remove some stains from a Lush bath ballistic that had left a ring around the bath.
This is a reasonable cleaner if you often clean your bathroom and only need the spray to give a light clean, but if you tend to leave your bathroom til it needs a deep clean, or if you often find yourself needing to remove stains, then you will probably want something stronger.
Personally I like to keep my scrubbing to a minimum so will probably sacrifice the extra pennies for a stronger and more effective cleaner.
Summary: OK if you don't mind putting in some hard graft
