Flash Spray with Bleach
Advantages: It certainly does the job.
Disadvantages: It smells rather strong!
I'm just in the middle of my Spring cleaning, yes I'm well aware it's August. I shall just revel in the title 'slut', in its old original use of the word of course!
I'm a bit of a fuss about cleaning but I also dislike doing it and want to get it over and done with quickly and with as little effort as possible. My partner owns some houses and quite often people will leave and leave the most awful filthy mess behind, particularly in the bathroom and kitchen, so I have to make sure it's spotlessly clean if people want to move in. I also need therefore something that I think is going to leave it as clean and hygienic as possible. Not only that it has to be seen to be clean. I'm just as fussy with my own home.
I've used lots of those anti-bacterial sprays and I'm sure they do the job of killing those bugs, although I'd love to know what that 1% is and whether I have it in my kitchen. What I have found is that things don't always LOOK thoroughly clean. I'm specifically talking about sinks, shower trays, cooker hobs, basically anything that's white. So clean and sparkly white that's my goal! Of course in my quest for this I found a lot of frogs, but I think I may have found my prince!
I grabbed this Flash with Bleach when I was at Poundland where I get quite a lot of my cleaning stuff as I thought a quid for a brand product was a bargain whether it was fantastic or not.
Apparently it has power, hygiene and a fresh smell of eucalyptus. I'm therefore expecting it to just shine through my kitchen with a delicious smell in its wake. Fact or fiction? It squirts out, not in a spray like many others but as a foam which rapidly covers the area that you are cleaning, and the fresh scent wafts out. Well not waft out but a real smack in the nostrils, this stuff stinks and it's a funny eucalyptus tree that it comes from! It does just smell like cleaning fluid, and definitely like bleach, but really I'm not fussed about that.
So you've foamed over the area you want to clean, then you should just be able to wipe and rinse, and actually its pretty good. It usually just takes one wipe and any stains are gone. For the more baked on and particularly messy stains its a bit more difficult. What I tend to do is leave it a minute or two and its usually soaked it enough for it simply to lift up and be wiped off. Some things require a little scrubbing but you certainly don't need to put any elbow grease into is. It ends up leaving whatever its used on sparkly clean.
It does smell, and the more you use indeed it smells worse. I have a small bathroom and I always have the door and window open as I think the fumes would knock you out quite quickly, it lingers as well, you'll be able to smell it a good hour later. I personally wouldn't use any other products whilst using this as it smells like it would cause a small explosion and you would end the cleaning with no eyebrows!
If I'm using a lot I tend to wear gloves as the smell does tend to transfer onto the hands, I also find that it can make the skin feel a bit dry. I heartily recommend that if you have any cuts on your hands or have dry hands than wear gloves.
It's certainly an impressive product, it cleans perfectly and it give a great shine to your whites. I'd be quite happy to pay full price which is around £2.50 but definitely worth stocking up on at a £1.
Summary: Branded cleaner that promises rather a lot!
