I love the old Pine-Sol
New Product Awful
I love the old Pine-Sol to clean the vinyl floors, and sanitize the bathroom fixtures. I loved the pine scent. Do NOT like the new scent or the new product that is 'watered down' UGH

Old fashion clean
Greasy Work Clothes
I was looking for something to clean most surfaces in my kitchen and tile bathroom floors. Good old Pine-sol was it!? I remember my mom using it in the laundry on my dad's work clothes. Works great on laundry after working on the car. Clothes do retain some scent. I had used a powdered cleaner in the past, but it streaked. I still keep ammonia around for other surfaces.
