Flash Bathroom Spray
Advantages: Gets through grime and soapscum
Disadvantages: Scent is too strong
When it comes to cleaning I am slightly obsessive when it comes to cleaning my bathroom (as well as my kitchen) and I tend to get through quite a few bathroom cleaners. I am not particularly loyal to any brand in particular I just tend to buy whatever is on offer or what has been recommended to me. Recently I saw Flash Bathroom Spray on offer in Wilkinsons and decided to give it a go.
Flash is one of those brands that every household has heard of as it offers a variety of cleaning products and has been going for quite a number of years. Flash design their bathroom cleaners to keep a bathroom cleaner for longer. Their products are designed to get through general grime, soapscum and water marks with the added benefit of leaving your bathroom clean and fresh smelling. In the bathroom collection is Flash Bathroom Liquid, Flash Bathroom Wipes and of course Flash Bathroom Spray.
Flash Bathroom Spray comes in a white spray bottle which has a white and dark blue nozzle. On the front of the bottle is a silver and blue label with the Flash logo (in yellow) clearly depicted together with images of a bath and a sink. On the back are the instructions, warnings, contact info etc. One thing I don't like about the bottle is that it isn't clear so you can't see how much you have left but that is hardly a big issue.
Now as I clean my bathroom regularly it is never that dirty so I don't know how effective it is on a very dirty bathroom but occasionally a ring will appear around the bath (combination of hard water and my partner regularly playing football!) and it can be tough to shift. This spray seems to get through it without any problems whatsoever. For my bath I do tend to spray the spray all around it and leave for about 10 minutes whilst I clean the toilet or sink etc and then all that is required is a simple wipe around and rinse and the bath looks sparkling white. The taps also benefit from the spray as they come up sparking clean and no water marks are left whatsoever.
My whole bathroom is tiled and some bathroom cleaners leave a water mark over the tiles but this spray doesn't leave any residue whatsoever over the tiles. I also find that using some cleaners on my toilet can leave a residue but this spray doesn't and takes a simple wipe over to come up looking as good as new.
One thing that I don't like about this spray is that it doesn't really come out as a spray as you would expect it is more like a white foam which is fine but you don't know how much you use every time you clean the bathroom and it is easy to use too much of the spray and instead of being able to wipe away the foam easily you end up having to wipe it a few times with each time rinsing your cloth out as it just ends up frothing even more. The other thing I am not a big fan of is the scent of this bathroom cleaner. Now I wasn't expecting the scent of roses but it has a very strong cleaner type scent which although can be classed as fresh it does linger for quite some time and I find it gives me a headache and anyone who uses the bathroom about five hours after using it. The scent could do with being a little less strong and more subtle.
Flash Bathroom Spray is available at all good supermarkets and discount stores and comes in a 500ml bottle. You can pick up a bottle for around £1.98 - £2.00 which I think is a good price for this.
Overall, it is a good bathroom cleaner and certainly does the job with removing water marks and basic bathroom grime. My bathroom always looks sparkling after it has been cleaned but I doubt I would be buying this again mainly because of the scent, it is far too strong and not to my liking. I also not a fan of it being a foam rather than a spray but that is just me! I would recommend it as it is a good cleaner just not for those who prefer something lighter smelling.
Summary: A good bathroom cleaner
