      Disadvantages

      Recommended By Me!

      On my way home in the car a few weeks ago I had a slight panic when my other half phoned me and said that we were out of cleaner. The nearest store was Tesco and all that was left was Tesco Value Cream Cleaner - not my first choice but I had no choice.

      The Packaging
      The actual look of the bottle is what you would expect with a Tesco Value line product. It sports their normal red. blue and mainly white choice of colours and does look like quite a cheap product. Not the kind of thing you would want if you are brand concious, more the product you hide at the back of the cupboard if you're that kind of person! It has a flip-top lid, so no child lock on the cap unfourtunatly. Luckily for my family our kids have grown up enough to learn it's not right to drink cleaners and so on. I hope they have anyway! Anyway, if you live in a house with many little children running round, I'm pretty sure this isn't the product for you.

      How to Use It
      Once you have shaken the bottle, squeze the cleaner onto a wet cloth (or just straight onto what you are going to clean) and then wipe over it. As soon as you have finished just wipe over with water (hot water works best for me!).

      Does it work?
      Well, I wasn't ever expecting the best, amazing performance from a very cheap cleaner, but I was pleasently suprised! Though I would say. it does take some elbow grease sometimes. And a little of the 500ml bottle does make average results - not the best but it does last a pretty good time.

      Avalibilty
      As you would probably guess, it is only avalible in Tesco. It is being sold for a very cheap price, just 32p. One of the main reasons I rated it so high!

      Overall
      I would say that it is a great product if you are in a sticky situation with money, but still not the best quality product. Or even if you are in a bit of a jam like me - it is a great solution. That's why I give it 4/5 stars!

      Thanks for reading!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Could not ask for more for the price...

      As I'm sure many dooyooer's are finding at the moment, I need to tighten the purse strings when doing my weekly shop and save pennies where I can.

      I will admit, I have realised I am rather shallow when it comes to my grocery shopping, and would not touch the Tesco Value range before it's "makeover". However, I now find myself trying a new product from the range every other week and I must admit I am pleasantly surprised.

      I purchased this cream cleaner as I was away to buy another VERY similar cleaner which was £1. When I spotted this one for only 32p - less than a third of the price - I thought I may as well give it a bash.

      I use this cleaner for my kitchen and bathroom every other day and have been very pleased with the results. I usually use a micro fibre cloth and it cleans away all stains and the finish it leaves is reasonable. On Stainless steel, it will leave streaks so I usually wipe over afterwards with a towel or damp piece of kitchen towel. On ceramic in the bathroom, it can sometimes leave streaks so again I usually wipe over with a damp towel to get a nice finish.

      This cleaner does have a quite strong scent similar to that of other cream cleaners which some may find overpowering. However I quite like the "clean" smell and usually have candles on the go anyway which will mask the smell.

      I would definitely recommend this cleaner based on the fact that it is only 32p. It's not a miracle worker but is perfect for every day cleaning around the home.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It's a good enough cleaner!!

      Though not my main cleaning agent I like to keep a bottle of cream cleaner in the cupboard.

      Tesco value (aka 'Everyday Value') is a first choice for me as I don't want to spend much on it as like I mention it's not my main cleaner. Selling at 32p for 500ml it's less than half the price of even the Tesco brand one for the same volume.

      It comes in a white plastic easy to squeeze bottle with a flip top lid. Tesco Value have had a facelift, the label on the bottle shown in the above picture has been replaced by a white and turquoise one, patterned with bathroom bits and pieces. The label tells you everything about the product on the front- the ingredients, directions for use etc.

      I use this in the kitchen and bathroom. In the bathroom it does a good job on everything in there (I don't do the loo though!!). Cream cleaners can be slightly abrasive but I haven't had any scratches using this one. The cream itself is white, mildly lemony scented and quite runny in consistency- not a problem with this cleaner in particular as by nature cream cleaners all tend to be thinnish. The directions tell us to 'Shake bottle. Squeeze cream cleaner onto a damp cloth or directly onto surface. Wipe over gently and rinse away immediately' I like to squirt it everywhere rub with sponge then rinse off, it leaves everything clean and sparkllng and doesn't leave a chalky residue as long as you rinse thoroughly. In the kitchen I tend to only clean the tiles- it does okay it seems to get grease off.

      I don't use it every day maybe once or twice a week and the bottle I have at the moment has lasted a couple of months with a bit left.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A brilliant and economy product I shall buy often from now on!

      When it comes to cleaning I always seem to buying something or other to do said cleaning with. Usually though I go to my local Poundland store and buy branded products costing of course a pound a time. However I do like to save my pennies wherever I can to indulge on things I actually want for me so whenever I see cheaper cleaning products I do buy them to try them out!

      This I bought in my local Tesco store costing me only 32p for a bottle of it and I thought for that price it was well worth a punt!

      The Packaging:

      Well this range of Value products from Tesco's has recently gone under a bit of a revamp making the packaging not look quite so garish and sticking out like a sore thumb looking that it's a cheaper product which I do appreciate. Ok its nothing special but they have toned the colour scheme down a bit thankfully as I thought they looked really cheap and nasty before!

      Not the range is called Tesco 'Everyday' Value Cream Cleaner and it still comes in a white plastic 500ml sized bottle with a flip top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole and on the front of it there is a white label with little blue drawings on it showing us a sink, a bath, taps, toilet and a hob and we are told as I have told you already what the product is, we are given directions for use and warnings and told the ingredients used to make the product are given, the size is stated (as I have listed already) and contact details for Tesco are also stated. There is no other information given via a label on the back of the bottle its all there on the front of it and down the sides of the bottle there are little raised lumpy bits to give grip when using the bottle which is a nice little thought I think. The product may have had a slight name change and now be packaged slightly different but it is the same product of course!

      The Product:

      Well the cream cleaner is an off white colour and rather runny with to me a fragrance that is light and pleasant and lemony. I like the fresh fragrance that this has to it to be honest.

      Now I've owned this a while now and used it in loads of different places. I use it in my sinks, bath, toilet and around my taps. I have used it on tiles and also on my hob and I've been really, really pleased with this one and can't believe the tiny price it costs.

      With cream cleaners such as this in the past I have found them to leave a powdery residue behind which did slightly concern me before I bought this one however I use this and wipe off with a clean cloth or rinse it away and I've had no problems with residue at all thankfully.

      In my bathroom it does a great job. A little of it goes a long way and it leaves a delicate fragrance behind itself for about an hour which suits me just fine. It brings my plastic, ceramic and tiles up a treat though I do have to gently rub with it of course but it combats through grease and grime easily. The only place I didn't like this was on my hob which really does get dirty after a good old cooking session of mine, it removed easily water marks and splattering of grease and food easily if just done but baked on muck....not at all and I wouldn't bother with this again for that kind of dirty job.

      However I like this and I now keep it stored in my bathroom. Its easy to use, a little of it goes a long way indeed and it doesn't harm my sensitive skin either. I do wish the fragrance lingered a little longer as its so pleasant and clean smelling but hey for a mere price of 32p a bottle what can we expect?! It cleans well and brings things up in my bathroom and my kitchen sink and tiles sparkling and I can't ask for much more than that of a product costing this price!

      Only available from Tesco stores.

        Disadvantages

        Clean with ease

        I am admit it I am a cleaning freak but don't usually use cream cleaner. I am rather a fan of spray cleaners. However after watching my pennies as I'm on a tight budget I saw this at Tesco for the bargain price of 32 pence I thought I'd give it ago.

        The Product~

        You may not be aware that Tesco has now changed the value range name to Tesco every day value. The words Tesco every day value can be seen clearly in blue writing at the top of the bottle.
        The bottle contains 500ml of cleaner. The cream cleaner is white in colour and smells rather floral. You can find out further information on this product at www.tesco.com

        Myself using it~

        I use this product through out my home. I have used it in my shower room in the shower cubicle itself to clean the sink.
        I have also used this in the kitchen it is very ggod at removing stains on your cooker that just soapy water doesn't seem to shift. it removes grease and grime effortlessly. I am very impressed with it and will definately be buying it again in future.

        Available only from Tesco supermarkets for only 32 pence.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great value product, worth a try for the price

        I absolutely hate cleaning bathrooms, it's boring and takes a long time... But recently I spotted this tesco value product on my weekly shopping trip to tesco. It was only 31p and that is a very cheap price. You receive a 500ml bottle for your money. I decided to buy it as I needed some more cleaning products, I thought it was worth a try at this cheap price. I will now go into more detail on the product.

        Bottle:

        It's very plain and is the typical tesco value product you would expect to buy. The bottle is white and is rather tall. It contains 500ml of a cream coloured liquid, it is very basic. For the cheap price the packaging is not very important to me! The bottle is a squeezable bottle, it is rather easy to use and very practical. The instructions tell you to apply to a damp cloth or directly onto a surface that needs cleaning. It has very basic instructions, but easy to follow. It's a simple yet effective product.

        Does it work?:

        It works a treat, a small amount on the end of a cloth is enough, simply rub onto surface and wash off. I use it for my bathrooms. It's excellent for scrubbing the bathtub as it removes all the grime and dirt that builds up after use. It is also excellent at cleaning sinks and the toilets. I also use it on the tiles in the bathroom. Once you rinse it off it leaves a lovely shine and smells fresh. I was shocked at how effective it was as I had never used a cream cleaner before. The bottle has lasted me over a month! It's perfect value for money. It may not be the best on the market, but if money is tight than its the perfect solution. It's also great for shining up taps on the bath and sink. I only use it in the bathrooms and haven't tried it in other parts of the house as of yet.

        Overall:

        A great value cleaner for a minimal price, well worth a try and will not cost the earth. Give it a try! This gets 4 stars from me as its excellent! It may not be the best on the market, but it does a fantastic job!

        Thanks for reading my review :)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great efefctive product at a cheap price

        Tesco Value Cream Cleaner is in my personal opinion, yet another fantastic cleaning product in the value range at Teso. This fantastic little sturdy plastic bottle will cost around 30p and contains a good amount in the bottle - 500ml to be exact.

        It does not have a child proof lock on it though so be careful if you have kiddies. I actually prefer the reassurance of their being a childproof lid. It has a simple flip top lid which is very easy to open. Instructions for use are really simple and easy. Just shake the bottle beforehand to disperse the contents and then pour into a clean damp cloth and then set to work at cleaning everything and anything you need to.

        I personally use this for both my bathroom and my kitchen areas. The smell is gently fragranced with lemons and is quite refereshing I feel and not at all overpoowering, so no need to open the windows to let the fresh air in - it won't give you a headcahe.

        it is quite mild and gentle on the skin but it has the ability to clean really well and really effectively in my opinion. I am very impressed with this product. It leaves no nasty marks or smears but I always take care to make sure I rinse down very well afterwards with hot clear water.

        A little will go a very long way and I always make sure I have a bottle of this under my kitchen sink. At this price it has to be a great bargain.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A really inexpensive cream cleaner that gets the job done!

        I use a cream cleaner for many different cleaning jobs at home. It's great for getting burnt-on food off pots and pans, good for cooker tops and work surfaces and baths and sinks positively gleam when cleaned with this stuff! It's also fairly gentle on surfaces and doesn't scratch, so leaves everything looking good.

        I used to buy a more well-known brand of cream cleaner, but now I am having to watch the pennies, I thought I'd try Tesco's Value Cream Cleaner to see whether it did as good a job.

        The cleaner comes packaged in a plain white plastic 500ml bottle, with the usual Tesco Value range labelling. Don't let the fact that it is a value brand put you off buying it though, as I have found it to be a really effective cleaner and as good as some of the more expensive brands!

        I find that you don't need to use too much of the cream. Just a small squirt of it onto a soft sponge usually cleans a fairly good area and if you use too much it tends to be difficult to rinse away. Sometimes if you are cleaning burnt on food from cookers and pans you do need to give it a bit of elbow-grease, but I find this cream gets most burnt-on food off very quickly. All you need to make sure is that you rinse surfaces well with clean water. If there is any residue it dries onto the surface leaving it slightly unsightly, and of course will taint food cooked in pots and pans afterwards if not rinsed off effectively.

        Baths and sinks come up a treat too and I find this cream is very good for getting limescale marks off effectively. Again, you do need to rinse the bath down well after cleaning.

        I really don't think you need to pay more for cream cleaners, as this is as good as the branded ones. It's really inexpensive too at 32p for the 500ml bottle. I also find it lasts a long time, though you do need to make sure the top is firmly closed to prevent it all drying out, and also give the bottle a shake before using each time to mix the contents up.

        I would recommend this cream cleaner to everyone!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great product

          As some of you will know, I hate paying a lot of money for cleaning products especially if you only use them for areas that don't really get that dirty. Tesco Value Cream Cleaner is one of my favourite basic products and one I have bought over and over again.

          == Packaging, price and how to use ==
          The bottle is plain white and has the usual Tesco Value label on the front. As this is a cleaning product, as well as the name of what you are buying, you also get ingredients on the label as well as a few warnings. The packaging is extremely simple but would you really want something fancy looking that you pay more for when all you do is shove the bottle in a cupboard? I definitely don't want to pay more for a pretty bottle when no one is ever going to see it.

          In order to use the cream cleaner it is very simple. All you need to do is squeeze the bottle onto a damp cloth and the liquid comes out of the little hole in the top. Once you have the liquid on the cloth, apply it to the surface that needs cleaning and then remove immediately. That being said, I do sometimes like to leave the liquid on the surface for a minute or two just to make sure it works to the best of its ability.

          A 500ml bottle of this cream cleaner is only 32p in Tesco stores. The slightly more expensive Tesco cream cleaner will cost you 72p for the same amount and while 40p doesn't sound like a big difference, it would buy you another bottle of the cheap stuff with change to spare.

          == Warnings ==
          As a cleaning product, you should take care when using it and the bottle does give a few warnings before use and they are:

          Keep away from children and pets.
          Keep away from eyes.
          In case of eye contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water. Seek medical
          advice if irritation persists.
          If swallowed seek medical advice and show this container and label.
          After use, rinse your hands and dry them thoroughly.
          As for all cleaning products if you have damaged or sensitive skin avoid
          prolonged contact.

          == Ingredients ==
          Tesco Value Cream Cleaner contains amongst other ingredients:
          Less Than 5% Anionic Surfactant, Non - Ionic Surfactant, Sodium Hydroxymethyl
          Glycinate, Benzisothiazolinone (and)
          Methylisothiazolinone, Perfume, Limonene.

          == My experience with the product ==
          The reason why this is one of my favourite cleaning products is because it works so well for what it is. I generally use this on kitchen worktops, inside cupboards and sometimes on the bathroom tiles if I am out of actual bathroom cleaner. When it comes to worktops, this cleaner works amazingly well. The cleaner itself is a thick white cream and because of this, you can easily see it when you clean on both the cloth and on the surface. I like that although you can easily wipe it away you can also see where you have and haven't cleaned. After cleaning with this and wiping with the cloth I always use a fresh cloth to go over my surfaces with warm water just to get rid of any extra and it is always easily removed and leaves everything shiny and clean. My one problem with this product (any cream cleaner in general though) is that after you use it you must really clean the top where the cleaner comes out of. If you don't, the cream dries up quickly and if left for some time, can leave a hard white cover over the whole and it is a bit of a pain to get rid of it.

          For 32p you can't really go wrong with this product. It does exactly what it should do and to a good standard. I would never pay much more than this for a cream cleaner because there is no need to at all.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A real bargain, give it a go!

          With our wedding in July rapidly approaching we are trying to economise in every way we can. So on my recent supermarket shop instead of my regular bathroom cleaner I opted for Tesco Value Cream Cleaner. Costing just 32p for a a500ml bottle its quite a lot cheaper than other cleaners on the shelf.

          The Tesco Value Cream Cleaner comes in a very plain bottle. Its the same shape that the majority of cream cleaners bottles are and is just plain white plastic with a simple flip top lid. There is just one label on the front which shows a small picture of gleaming taps and has the usual Value logo. You will also find the directions for use, storage, warnings and product information on the label too.

          The cleaner should be stored upright and in a cool place. The warnings are pretty standard, wash hands after use, keep away from pets and children, avoid contact with eyes and avoid prolonged contact if you have sensitive skin. I should add that I have sensitive skin and have had no problems using this product.

          The cream cleaner is white in colour and smells quite pleasant and faintly of lemons, it looks pretty much like any other cream cleaner, the only difference being this one isn't quite as gritty as some I've used. The value cleaner is a bit runnier too.

          Using the cleaner is straight forward, just squeeze it onto whatever you are using to clean, I use a little sponge with a scourer on one side, and rub it over the sink, bath or whatever you are cleaning, then rinse away with clean water. I did find you need to be careful when you squeeze the cleaner out, with it being runnier than others you could easily use too much and waste it. The cleaner rinses away reasonably easy but I find with all cream cleaners if you don't rinse thoroughly you do end up with a gritty bath.
          The Value cream cleaner cleans just as well as others I've tried. It left my bath and sink sparkling and clean.

          I've also used this to clean plastic window frames and found it bought them up really well. Also the heels of pale coloured shoes have benefited from a quick going over with the cream cleaner, it removes the black scuff marks I get when I drive in heels.

          I am also reliably informed that it is also good for removing crayon from paint work.

          For just 32pence this is a real bargain. Tesco regular cream cleaner is £1.02 for 500ml's and a branded one such a s Cif is £2.02! And as long as I have a nice clean house at the end I'm definitely going to stick with the Value Cream Cleaner. Its certainly excellent value for money and one I would recommend anyone trying.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Good cheap cleaning product.

            As I have written in some of my previous reviews. I like cleaning and do my fair share around the home. I like the feeling I have done a good job after I have cleaned and I just love to see the results and I like to try lots of different products as I get rather bored with just one for some reason.

            I bought this cleaner from Tesco Value range, it is a thick plastic bottle with a flip top and the bottle is just a basic looking one for the cheap price of just 31p for 500ml. The cleaner is a thick white liquid, the texture of it is very smooth. It has a really nice smell to it and for the price I think it is a really nice fragrance that does last some time after use. It is easy to squeeze from the bottle onto sinks and I just gently rub my sinks and basins with a damp cloth and just rinse. It rinses very well and I rinse as soon as I have cleaned them because once when I first used this cream cleaner, I left it to answer the telephone and when I returned it had gone all hard and streaky on the basin and although it did rinse off, it did not rinse as well as if I had done it straight immediately.

            It leaves my sinks and basins nice and clean. It also leaves them nice and shiny after it has dried and I have used this one to clean my bath and it has removed the scum that has been left on the bath after use. This cleaner actually lasts a very long time as only a little is needed. The top can be replaced after use as it is a flip one and I wipe around the top of the bottle after use with a damp cloth because it can clog with the cleaner and can become quite hard and then the liquid cannot be squeezed from the bottle.

            I do clean my taps with this one but I clean them while I am rinsing and not directly using the cleaner in the same way as when I clean my basins or sink. I have used it on my stainless steel sink and I have found it not to scratch it because I only rub it gently and it has removed stains and marks around the plug hole too with no problem at all.

            I highly recommend this cleaner for anyone to give it a go as I think for the price it is an excellent cleaner which cleans very well indeed and worth the money and a very good quality product.

            I rate it 5 stars.

              Unbranded bathroom cream cleaner

              Cleaning the bathroom is not really a household task I enjoy particularly but I appreciate that it is very important to make sure it is done. As well as this I don't really like spending huge amounts of money on products I am only going to use to clean the bathroom and so the perfect solution for me is the Tesco Value Cream Cleaner which for a 500ml bottle is currently only 31 pence on their website which I think is an amazingly good price when compared to a branded rival product like Cif which is £1.98 for the same size.

              The bottle the cream is stored in is completely white with a very simple basic red, white and blue label stuck on it with information about the product and directions for use. I have cleaned the toilet and sink along with other shelves and the windowsill in my bathroom and it has been very suitable for these tasks. I quite often use this cream in conjunction with cleaning sponges from the Tesco value range as these are also extremely cheap and once used considering their cost can just be disposed of.

              The bottle has a flip top lid and the cream can be poured out very easily, sometimes I pour the cream on to a sponge or sometimes directly on to the porcelain or whatever I am cleaning. The bottle needs to be stored somewhere safely as it could be easy for a child to get in to without a child safety cap. I simply wipe the cream over the surface and then keep cleaning with extra water until no residue is left and I must say it does leave an impressive sparkly clean finish especially considering the cost. I am more than satisfied with this product and see no need to change to a more expensive brand, I know that products like the aforementioned Cif are of a very good quality but I am happy with the cheaper one that does a good job and meets my needs. As well as the bathroom this could be used for additional tasks I should think like on garden furniture or in your car, an affordable and useful cream cleaner which can be purchased with loose change.

                Good value cleaner.

                Having a clean and tidy home is very important to me as it is for a lot of people in general and I work hard at doing the tasks and chores as I enjoy cleaning and love to see the results at the end of the day as we all do.

                I came across this cheaper cream cleaner from Tesco Value range for only 31p for a 500ml bottle and thought I would give it a try as I am currently trying to buy cheaper products where possible so I can save more money when I can and trying the cheaper ones does make a lot of sense to me.

                It comes in a very basic white plastic bottle with a flip back lid and inside it is a thick white creamy liquid, it has a slightly fragrance to it and it has a very nice texture and consistency too, and for a very cheap price it does the job perfectly in my opinion.

                It does not scratch the sinks or taps and rinses off very well, it does not leave marks on the surfaces when rinsed off correctly, and it leaves them sparkling and fresh.

                I never thought it would do such a good cleaning job but I have not been at all disappointed with it, in fact, quite the opposite.

                Squeezing it from the hole in the top of the bottle is quite easy to do as you do not have to squeeze too hard for the liquid to come out of the top as I have found some other products in the past, I did find however that it should be squeezed slowly as the first time I used it, it came out too fast but I think I was a little heavy handed with it lol and I always wipe the hole with a damp cloth after use as it can tend to become stuck with the cleaner and the next time it is used, it can become quite to remove any dried on liquid from the previous time used.

                When I used this cleaner and rinsed it thoroughly, I just buff with a dry cloth and the surfaces are nice and shiny and sparkle and look nice and fresh.

                I highly recommend this cleaner for anyone to try as I do not think anyone would be disappointed with it in my opinion.

                I think you should not be fooled by the very basic looking bottle as the contents work perfectly fine in my opinion and it is just as good as some of the branded ones but a fraction of the price.

                I give it 5 stars.

                Thank you for reading my review.

                  A good price swap item

                  ==Tesco Value Cream Cleaner==


                  I have been using the Tesco own brand cream cleaner for a while and the bottle seemed to last for ages but since I have found out how well the cream cleaner is at cleaning my painted walls the bottle soon needed replacing.


                  I decided I would try out the lower brand this time and get the Tesco's Value Cream Cleaner as at 31 pence for a large 500 ml bottle it was under half the price of the one I had been previously using and far cheaper than the named brands (although generally it is a comparatively cheap multi-purpose cleaner).


                  The packaging is basic, with a white bottle and the classic Tesco value label on the front indicating what the product clearly is, ingredients and how best to use the product safely. The bottle has an easy to open and easy to use flip top lid which allows good storage and ease of use. However it is not an especially safe bottle especially when you have little ones around so it is best kept in a locked cupboard.


                  The directions for use are easy in the fact that all you need to do it, give the bottle a good shake and then squeeze the cream cleaner on to a damp cloth or directly on to the surface you are cleaning. It needs to be wiped over gently and the rinsed away immediately.


                  The fragrance of the cleaner is that of a light citrus lemon smell and on the whole doesn't smell too bad. It is a dirty cream coloured cleaner and looks more or less like most other branded cream cleaners do.


                  The results with this product were not overly bad and for the uses that I have found to clean with it I am rather happy with the purchase of it. It cleans my walls well and removes the scuffs and dirt that little people seem to make, although Himself isn't that little! It brings the sink up to a very clean standard although don't sparkle as much as when I use other products but it still appears clean and dirt free. Of course you can use this cream cleaner on a whole host of different tasks but my uses for it tend to be just the walls, ceilings and sinks and for these tasks I really cannot fault it.


                  I can't really notice any difference when using this Tesco Value Cream cleaner to when I have use a more expensive branded one so with that in mind I don't think that I shall buy a more expensive one again. Plus this bottle is pretty big so it shall take a while to get through!


                  I can't find any fault with the product. It works well and is at a very cheap price. A 5 out of 5 star rating and an exceptionally high recommendation.


                  I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.


                  Many thanks for taking the time to read.

                    CHEAP HOUSEHOLD CLEANER

                    The Tesco Value range is a range of Tesco products that did not really interest me very much until not long ago when I thought I would try out some of the products to see if I could save some money on my weekly shop.

                    I thought that some of the stuff was good value and nice to use but other items from the Tesco Value range have been a waste of money and I would not buy them again.

                    One item that I liked from the range was the Tesco Value Cream cleaner. I have used this on my bathroom and also on my cooker and kitchen work tops and thought it was an ok cleaner. I think it is good at taking away greasy marks so this is why it is good for the cooker and the kitchen.

                    I think it is good at leaving a nice shine on the bath and on the sink in the toilet and I think it is good at taking away dirty marks and stains.

                    The packaging is not very eye catching or attractive as it is a plain white bottle and does not stand out on the supermarket shelf but this is what a lot of the Tesco value products are like and it does not put me off to much.

                    The cleaner is very easy to use.......... All I had to do is use it with warm water and a wet cloth or sponge. I think that it soaps up nicely and you do not need to rub to hard to take away the dirty marks or grease.

                    Only thing is I think that it is bad for leaving a scum or residue after you have cleaned your work tops or bath. You need to be careful to rinse this all away or there is a lot of white marks left on your surface. I have had this problem with other brands of creamy cleaners before so I do not think it is the Tesco value brand that is at fault.

                    The liquid can be messy to use and you need to make sure you do not spill it as I have had this happen before and I had a terrible mess to clean up. The liquid is quite runny and this is another problem about this type of cleaner as it can be quite messy to use.

                    The bottle of Tesco value cream cleanser cost me around 40 pence I think and this has lasted me over a month so I think it is very good value for money and I would buy it again for odd jobs around the house and because I like using it on my bathroom.

                    I would suggest giving it a try as it is so cheap and it works ok.
