Comment:
I have used pine-sol original forever but this new scent is disgusting! Why would they ruin <br />a fabulous product when they already had other pine-sol fragrances on the market?<br />They certainly have lost a one time loyal customer and I would certainly not recommend<br />this product even to my worst enemy!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Pinesol used to be a GREAT product. It is an all purpose cleaner that has been around for decades and generations<br />of families. It stuck around because it had it's loyal users that loved the way it smelled and the scent lasted. The new pinesol smells nothing like PINE...and one needs to use more product to get a hint of scent.<br />I have switched to other versions of pine cleaner, saves money and works better than the newer version of pinesol.<br />The company may be tying to save money by changing the product, but in the long run they lost loyal customers.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
It works well but stopped using it after it dissolved the glue on the range and hood holding the surrounds and eventually allowed liquids to cause the display to fail. It also damaged the finish on a wood table. I would not use it on anything full strength and the only thing I find it useful floor would be a floor cleaner if using a mop and bucket which I don't since I have a floor-mate. You should carefully review the manufacturer's product information which can be found here http://www.thecloroxcompany.com/products/ingredients-inside/en-us/pinesol/originalpinesolmultisurfacecleaner/
