not worth the price
Scent is great
Doesn't clean anything
Best Uses
Clean Garbage Disposal
I used it for hand washing dishes, but nothing came clean easily. Plastics were so heavily scented after washing, I threw them away. Ended up using it for washing the countertops, light mopping the floor, and things like garbage cans. Did leave a nice scent.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
