Cillet Bang and a Giveaway



I was recently sent the neatest thing to test out. The Cillit Bang All in 1 is the latest cleaner in the Cillit Bang arsenal of cleaning products. The All in 1 comes in a very handy pump dispenser that means every bottle is tough on dirt and economical to use.

I am quite familiar with all of the Cillit Bang products and use them in my home often . . . I use the stuff for in the laundry to make my whites whiter (and it works) and I use the spray cleaner for the bath and also for the kitchen. All of their products work quite well in my opinion and deliver what they promise . . . but could this???



The starter kit comes with one bottle of the all in one surface cleaner, an automatic dispenser and the batteries needed. The dispenser under the tap activitates automatically delivering the exact amount when you wave your sponge beneath it. It's quite neat to watch.

The first thing I did with it was try to tackle the baked on mess on my hob top.



Umm . . . I am almost embarassed to show you this. But . . . well for the purposes of illustrating just how good this stuff is I will! You can see that there is quite a bit of cooked on grime there! Yuck!! It's not hard to tell which burners I use the most!



I simply waved my damp sponge beneath the nozzle and then I applied it all over the top of my hob. I let it sit for about 10 minutes, and then I scrubbed it all off. It took very little elbow grease and this is what I ended up with:



It's not perfect, but it is a vast improvement on what I started out with! I expect it will take more than a few passes to get all of the grime, but I was quite impressed.

Do you remember those tasty oats I cooked ???



Here is the pot after cooking. I even let it sit overnight so that it would dry on even more. You can even see a scorch on the side of the pot due to the gas flame licking up the sides of the pot, from an earlier cooking session. I could never get it to disappear.



I waved the pot beneath the dispenser and got one squirt and then I filled the pot with warm water and let it sit for about 15 minutes . . .



Presto Chango! It looks like a new pot! Even the scorch mark is gone!

All in One has been specially formulated for use on dishes AND surfaces. Its intelligent cleaning agents react to different surfaces, giving you a versatile solution to tackle stains and food residues all over the kitchen.

The result? Sparkling dishes and gleaming surfaces from one product. Gentle enough on your hands for everyday washing up and wiping down, but powerful enough to cut through grease and baked on stains. Even pure oil is no match for All in One Dish & Surface cleaner.

Plus it's concentrated liquid promises to be 2 X more efficient than regular washing up liquid, so you use less.

The All in One Dish and Surface cleaner comes with a clever dispenser which senses your sponge and automatically delivers just the right amount in a measured dose – so no more wastage due to over-squirting. And because the dispenser can be used again and again, all you need to do is order refills once it runs out. Each contains up to another 160 doses.

On surfaces the product cut through dirt just as well as it did on my dishes but 1 pump was enough to clean and any more meant that you were spending time rinsing the lather off. A little goes a long way and as each refill dispenses up to 160 doses the retail price of currently £7.99 for 3 refills it looks like an economical alternative to buying several separate products for your cleaning needs.

All in all I would call this handy product a winner, hands down!

Would you like to be able to try the Cillit Bang All in 1 yourself??? I will be giving one away to one lucky reader who comments on this post. Unfortnately, the UK only. In order to be in on the giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post and on Monday, March 5th, 2012, I will draw one lucky winner using a random number generator. Good luck everyone!

Many thanks to Rachel and Cillit Bang for affording me this opportunity!
