I remember that I didn’t like this product much at our old house. But I just tried it again, and I may have to revise my opinion upward.
I never thought that Soft Scrub, even with bleach, did much on the countertop stains at our old house. But I just tried it on four places in my current kitchen and it worked great on all of them.
I used it on an unknown stain on enamel that had been there for months, and it removed it. I used it on an unknown stain on formica that had been there for at least weeks, and it removed it. I used it on recent coffee ring stains on formica and it removed them. Finally, I tried it on another enamel surface that just gets dingy because it is old, and the Soft Scrub brightened the whole thing up.
The product claims to be tough on greasy dirt, mildew stains, and soap scum, and to gently bleach out tough stains. It is for use on aluminum, fiberglass, enamel, plastic, and appliances. Do not use on silver.
The main point of the product is that it is less abrasive than powdered cleansers. But it is slightly abrasive.
As for the greasy dirt and soap scum, I don’t understand what is wrong with hot water, soap and some elbow grease. No need to buy an expensive product for that. But you can see what I just discovered about stains.
It has a flip top cap, so you will usually get some product on your hands trying to open it.
Perhaps the old counters in the farmhouse we used to live in were too old and porous and they just needed the abrasive cleaners.
