Not A Mouse For Eating
Member Name: xxBeccaxx
Advantages: Cleans well, removes the need for work, novelty product, easy to dispense, easy to store.
Disadvantages: Very pricey at full RRP
I don't use this mousse very often anymore, not because I don't like how it cleans but because of the huge price tag attached to it! I was regularly able to pick this up for £1 either in my local supermarket when it was on offer or my local Poundland when they had it in stock however with the price hike from the regular £2 it's now around the £2.50 mark and for what this does I feel it is too expensive to buy regularly. If I see it floating around my Poundland then I would buy it again without a doubt.
This mousse comes in a tall can with a transparent green, dome shape cap which clicks on and off the can easily enough. This is not a safety cap however so it should be kept out of reach from young children. The can is bright and details the name of the product, we're told it holds 500ml's and that this particular scent is 'citrus burst'.
On removing the domed cap there is a white plastic lever which as you hold the cap upside down or at least at an angle you hold down for the product to come out. Using the product is as simple as spraying the mousse onto the surfaces you require it to be, leave it for 5-10 minutes and then simply wipe off. It's suitable for a variety of surfaces, it doesn't detail anywhere it isn't suitable for but I didn't use it on my floor tiles nor my shower screen as I have separate cleaners for these.
I sprayed the whole bathroom as the walls are all tiled as well as the sink and the bath. On spraying a small amount comes out it doesn't go like hair mousse (my thought when I bought it) it's just like a regular spray that foams up a little, not exactly what I was expecting but however. The scent to me doesn't seem like citrus at all but then I don't seem to find that cleaners have the ability to smell like anything other than fake chemicals which doesn't bother me too much. It has a very clean and fresh scent, it has the fake smell too it but it's not overpowering in any way.
When I returned a little later (definitely after the recommended 10 minutes) I could definitely smell the product over the bleach and cleaner down the toilet. It was actually quite nice I have to admit. It was extremely easy to clean using this mousse, I simply wiped over the surfaces with a cloth and all dust and marks were removed. Any soap deposits were also easily removed as were any mineral deposits from the water which can leave an orange slime but this got rid of every mark I could find. The taps came up nice and shiny and there were no streaks left on the chrome which I was extremely pleased about.
I like this product as I can easily spray the mousse and leave it to work it's magic while I do something more satisfying than cleaning the bathroom and then come back and wipe it off. It leaves everything clean and shiny and I am more than pleased it works. I also like that it leaves the bathroom smelling clean and fresh for a good few hours after the bathroom has been cleaned. I done mine this afternoon around 1pm and even now (6.30pm) I can still smell the freshness of the product which is exceptional in my opinion. As I said I wouldn't pay the £2.50 for it as I can get the same results by using a simple spray at £1 and using some elbow grease but if I see these on offer for £1 I definitely would buy them as the convenience is a great feature! I have been using this particular can for around a month now and I still have plenty left so a little goes a long way which is something else I really like about this product.
Summary: A good cleaner but a pricey one at that.
