Spring-clean your cleaners: many surface cleaning products don’t actually work
Choice finds many household surface cleaners work no better than water – and some are worse
It’s a habitual thing. When you want to clean a surface, you spritz on a cleaning product, grab your scrub and get to work. But a recent test by the consumer advocacy group Choice has found that many surface cleaning products work no better than water. And some, in fact, are worse.
Choice’s Ashley Iredale told Guardian Australia: “About 50% of the ones on our test weren’t noticeably different from plain water. It’s pretty scary. You’re essentially just tipping money down the drain.”
