Flash Spray with Bleach
Disadvantages: Strong smell might not be for everyone
Bleached based multipurpose cleaners are something I always make sure I have in the house, they are handy for cleaning most things. I'm currently using this Flash spray with bleach in my kitchen but I have been known to use it in the bathroom also.
Flash with bleach is widely available from supermarkets, corner shops and discount stores. I recently purchased mine from my local Poundland, how bad can it be for a single pound coin?! Though, it's worth mentioning that if you buy it from a supermarket it will probably be a little more expensive.
The bottle for this product is the same as most other cleaning product bottles. It has a wide bottom, thin neck and a trigger type sprayer. The trigger needs to be turned at the end so that it can allow you to spray the product. The trigger is easy to pull and once activated sprays a foam like substance on to the surface you want to clean. Some products spray and bubble when it hits the surface but this one is more like foam than bubbles.
The smell when the product is sprayed is the distinctive bleach smell you would expect from a spray with bleach in the title! The bottle says it has a hint of eucalyptus in the smell but I can't identify it personally. The bleach smell isn't as overpowering as some other brands I have experienced but it is still noticeable. I don't find the smell a problem, if anything it's reassuring as you know you've cleaned well with it.
I use this Flash with bleach for a lot of the cleaning jobs around my kitchen, the most common use is the kitchen worktops. A couple of squirts is sufficient to get a nice clean on the worktops, I tend to spray then wipe with a cloth straight away. When it comes to more dirty surfaces, such as my cooker hob, I tend to spray the product then leave it for a minute or two to get to work then come back and wipe the hob and it leaves it looking sparkling. I find that the spray is more than capable of dealing with tough, ground on dirt with no problems at all.
I'd definitely recommend Flash with Grease, at as little as a quid it is fantastic value for money. It is an effective cleaner and can be used for a variety of cleaning jobs around the home. The smell may put some people off but it's definitely not as bad as other brands.
Summary: Great cleaner
