Guide Review - Kaboom Shower, Tub and Tile Cleaner

The foaming action is really great with Kaboom Shower, Tub and Tile cleaner. Some purchasers may be turned off by the retail price of around 5 dollars. Remember though that this cleaner works on your tub, shower, doors, sink, tile, and more. It cleans nicely without being harsh on you. Normally when I clean a bathroom, I leave a window open and a fan pulling air to ventilate to make sure I can breathe and see while I'm cleaning. Even without my standard ventilation, Kaboom Shower, Tub, and Tile cleaner didn't make me cough, cause my eyes to tear up, or make my skin feel irritated. My 5 year old daughter normally runs to another room to avoid the smell when I clean the bathroom, but her only comment was, "Hey. It doesn't smell thick."

Works for Me, Member suz.le

Comet has been my choice of bathroom cleaner since forever . . . but on a whim thought I'd try Kaboom. It worked great for me -- sprayed it on the tub, left it for about 5 minutes and not only were the soap scum and hard water stains gone, but this stain that I had for years despite being scrubbed and scrubbed with Comet, wiped right away with Kaboom. To me, the chemical smell is as bad as Fantastic and similar type cleaners but it's worth it because it works without having to scrub. It dissolved the hard water stains on my kitchen faucet much faster than CLR and even lightened the unsealed grout on my bathroom floor. I will have to use a different product for the mold and mildew in the shower, but hard water and soap scum are the bigger problems for me.
