My beautiful mum passed away this year and I had lost my way and mojo writing reviews but am hoping that I can have it back soon. Having more down days recently than up but getting there slowly.

I just absolutely love Cif cleaning items, I have bought them for many years. They clean well and worth the money, so when I spotted this cleaner on special offer some time ago, I bought it. I have just finished the last of it. I do love cleaning and love my home to smell fresh too at the same time as being nice and clean. I also like a cleaning item to actually work, otherwise it is harder work to clean in my opinion.
This cleaner comes in a very bright yellow coloured plastic bottle, it is a trigger action spray cleaner. It can be turned on or off easily by just twisting it at the top of the bottle. The trigger is easy to press to release the cleaner onto the surface. The plastic is really strong too. The bottle is quite tall for a cleaning product but does fit well inside a cupboard.
Once sprayed onto a surface it creates a white foam, the foam sits on the surface and can be then just wiped with a damp cloth. It has an amazing fragrance and has a kind of citrus smell which is really pleasant., It smells amazingly fresh too. With this one it is quite a strong smell but not too overpowering, it is just the right amount of strength of smell to work around the home. I tend to spray it onto my worktops and leave it for a couple of minutes before I wipe with a damp cloth. With any stubborn food which may be dried onto the surface I leave it a little longer. This cleaner softens the food and within a few minutes it just dissolves the food and can be wiped away.
It has a powerful formula that cuts through grease or dirt. It works to attack the dirt well. I use this all around my home. It is nice to use in the kitchen on the tiles, taps and sink. I use it in my bathroom also on the sink etc. I have a shower cubicle in my bathroom and I use this to clean the base, it removes any scum which is around the edges of the base and near the plug hole. What I love about this cleaner is it doesn't just clean well but it leaves the taps and tiles nice and shiny. I use a dry cloth on my taps after I have cleaned them, I just buff them for a few seconds and they sparkle.
I use it to clean my little grandaughter's tray on her high chair. This area can be quite a mess after she has eaten her food as we all know how the little ones drop food etc. This cleaner just cleans the tray well and clean ready for her next visit to my home.
I also just spray a little onto a damp cloth and use it to clean my door handles. It is surprising how door handles can be dirty without us realising. I have a weak immune system and so I like to make sure that all my handles are as clean as possible, I just clean them with this cleaner daily just to help remove germs etc so that it helps a little. Light switches are another area that harbour dirt, I use it on a damp cloth using just a tiny amount and just wipe over the switches. I use it to clean windowsills, especially my lounge windowsill because it is a bay window and the windowsill is quite large, my cat likes to sit and lay on it to look out of the window, some of his fur is left it quite often, so I just use a paper towel to remove the fur first before I clean it with this spray.
It tells me on the label on the back of the bottle that this one shouldn't be used on marble surfaces and to rinse immediately on plastic surfaces. When I have used it on the high chair tray I have rinsed it as directed and found it hasn't ruined it at all. This tray is a really cheap one because it is from Ikea, I bought this high chair over 3 years ago when my little grandson was born and this spray has just left it in a perfect condition. It is always wise to be careful though with plastics because the label does give these instructions but I took the chance because of the chair being a cheap one and wouldn't really be a problem because the chair isn't used every single day.
For a 750ml bottle it is priced around £3 but I bought it on special offer for around £2 and so quite a saving. This is a really good quality and excellent value for money. I love the way it cleans well around my home. I will always buy this one when I see it on offer because it is one that is a delight to use to clean. It takes all the hard work out of cleaning, it also gives a nice fresh smell for my rooms too.
I highly recommend this one for anyone to give it a go, it gives me all the results that I expect from a well known brand. The bottle lasts such a long time too because only a small amount is needed to work into dirt to make the surface spotlessly clean in my opinion.
I give this one 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
