Deals to urine odours, soap scum and heavy duty lime scale.
A concentrated formula specifically blended for removal of organic matter. It safely removes hard water and calcium deposits from all surfaces. It has a rapid penetrating action that breaks down all organics by using an organic salt. Eliminates odours by destroying the source of the problem, replaces the need to use bleach in a washroom / bathroom environment.
Cleaning the toilet is one of those jobs that I've never liked but I'm now at that stage where I can outsource that particular job to one of my kids now. When my son went to clean the toilet (in return for PlayStation time) he quickly asked if using this meant he'd have review it, which made me chuckle. It's a big bottle, one litre in total, but it doesn't feel hard or awkward to hold. On the side, there is a thin, clear, strip which enables you to see just how much product you've got left, which means no more guessing by weight and you can easily plan ahead for your next grocery shopping trip.
My eldest was the first person to use this, so I didn't see anything different but it sure did help eliminate any odours in the toilet. I began using it, concentrating it on one spot that is rather yellow and has been for some time. It took me spraying and scrubbing that spot, several times over a week but it has definitely eliminated I'd say 75% of the discolouration, so I can see it works well in that regard. Every now and then (very rarely but still gross...), one of my kids will wipe a little bit of their faeces on the wall (not sure why it still happens, but it's getting less and less which is fab). This happened recently and as soon as I noticed I grabbed this, gave it a spray and it wiped with great ease.
This is a product that has proven itself well, it's far out of my usual budget range for cleaners and I've already used almost half the bottle, but not that I've gotten on top of things I may end up using less. NZ made and biodegradable are big pluses in its favour too. I may well buy this in the future.
I think it's pretty safe to say that a lot of people think cleaning the toilet is the worst job out of all housework. I myself loathe when it is time to clean the porcelain throne. Living in a house with boys our toilet often looks feral. As a mum of three precious children, I try not to use lots of harsh chemicals that could be harmful. When I saw that KIWIreviews had this toilet cleaner from NZYME available to request I was intrigued, especially seeing that this product is supposed to be good for removing heavy duty lime scale, and dealing with those nasty urine odours.
Looking at the bottle it is certainly eye-catching, with its contrast between the purple and the black on the label, and the brightness of the company's logo. The spray nozzle has a spray function and a straight squirt function, along with being able to shut the trigger completely (handy with young, mischievous children.) I really like that this product is 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly, the major factor that made me curious to try this is because the company claims it is safe for people and pets. When I received this I will admit that I was dubious about how effective this would be considering it had no caustic chemicals
When it came time to try this toilet cleaner, I decided to use it on our main toilet, which has a slight build-up of lime and grime along the water line and the bottom of the bowl. The instructions on the bottle were simple to follow, and as it would turn out very effective. I was pleasantly surprised at the level of cleanliness after not a lot of scrubbing. Usually I stick to cleaners I know are not strong smelling as they give me headaches, I was worried this would be too strong, however this had a pleasant smell.
Overall I think this product is wonderful, effective, great for people and the environment, however I do not know if our tight budget would be able to accommodate for the cost unfortunately.
Growing up my mum was obsessed with having a clean toilet (and she still is) to the point that she would clean both of them every day - sometimes as much as twice a day. Where as, I am no where near as bad, I do appreciate a clean toilet and when I see marks on it well it needs to be cleaned. My girls seem to be following in the same footsteps except they do not scrub with the brush they think just tipping the toilet cleaner down the toilet and waiting for the bubbles to appear will do the trick - they still have some learning to do.
I have been brought up always having the cleaning spray go right up under the rim so when I received this I was a tad worried. All those years of being told you need to get it right up there in the shaft came flooding back to me and I thought 'oh no I will not have a clean toilet'. But after reading the back of the spray bottle I felt some relief as it assured me it would removed the toughest of stains and other organic matter.
I decided to put to the test and leave the toilet uncleaned for a week - okay who am I kidding - I couldn't bring myself to leave it that long but that was the initial plan. Four days later it was of need of a cleaning (thank goodness mum never came around). I pulled it out of the cleaning closet, because it is to large to place where I normally put my toilet cleaner and I turned the nozzle to the spray position.
The first thing I noticed was the pleasant aroma - it wasn't smacking you in the face and I really do like it. I sprayed and I sprayed and watched it fall down to the water. I couldn't work out how to get it right under the rim but I tried as much as I could and then pulled out my trusty toilet brush and my goodness did it turn up clean. The bowl was white and flash and honestly looked like a new toilet. There were some marks under the seat and I used the spray on that and it just wiped away and looked lovely. We have always had a mark just before the water sneaks away through the pipe and I am not sure if its my eyes playing tricks on me but I could swear it had faded some and got smaller - will be keeping an eye on that.
It does not leave bubbles after the flush but it does leave everything looking whiter than it was. I think I will keep it away from my mum as at $18 a bottle it is a tad on the expensive side and she would probably use it all in a week. I am really impressed with how a little does go a long way and how I can spray under the seat and around the top of the bowl without having to use another item to do it. A new toy I think I am going to enjoy using if only for the smell. I have now used it four times and each time I swear it is getting whiter - I am impressed!
