Let's Review: Lysol Power & Free (Part 1)

Through BzzAgent, I was sent a bottle of Lysol Power & Free cleaner and a package of wipes from the same line.

The whole idea for this line of products is that you can get a powerful clean without the use of bleach.  Benefits of this:
  • No harsh chemical residue
  • Leaves a fresh clean scent
  • Kills 99.9% of germs
  • No gloves, masks, or protective eye wear needed
 Instead of bleach, it cleans using a hydrogen peroxide formula, which is supposed to release micro bubbles that penetrate to dissolve grease and tough messes.

So far I've tried the wipes and I'm so impressed!

I don't regularly buy cleaning wipes (except for baby's bum) so this was a test of both the cleaning formula and the method of application.

It was so easy to clean my countertops with these wipes.  I used it on both my bathroom counters/sinks and the kitchen counters.  In the bathrooms, it easily cut through the grime that had accumulated- toothpaste splatters, spilled contact solution, hairspray, shaved facial hair, etc.  I didn't have to move everything off the counters at once like I normally do when I use a spray cleaner- I just moved things as I went, and was able to put things back right away since it took no time at all to dry.  In the kitchen it sanitized as well as removed spots of dried pasta sauce and peanut butter.  And all of this without the nasty smell of bleach.  The rooms still smelled like cleaning product, but it wasn't the strong stench of bleach that makes you feel like you need to throw open every window in the house to air it out.

My only issue was that there was almost too much cleaning product in the wipes when it came to cleaning the faucet in the bathroom.  This is a seriously minor complaint, but I had to go over the faucet with a dry paper towel to pick up the streaks of cleaner that was left after wiping it down with the Lysol wipes.  It was looking like it would dry splotchy if I didn't.  Maybe it was just because I was cleaning metal, because it didn't seem to leave too much cleaner on the countertops or in the sink.

I'm giving this product an A.  It was pretty great.

I'll be trying the spray cleaner soon and I'll write another post on that one.

*I got these cleaners for free though BzzAgent, but all opinions are my own!*
