I'm a pro cleaner and there are six products that I'd never buy – they're a total waste of money | The Sun

WITH so many cleaning products available on the market, it can be hard knowing which ones are really worth your money.

But a professional cleaner named Victoria has revealed the six products she doesn't get on with and wouldn't recommend.

In a clip to TikTok (@pocketrocketscleaning), she begins: "Disclaimer, this is just my personal opinion and my preference.

"And there are clearly millions of people in the world that do love these products because they're all massive international, multi-billion dollar companies.

"But my personal opinion…I don't rate these."

She then begins by discussing Cillit Bang products.

"Limescale remover, mould remover, I'm so sorry, they're just not up to scratch," she says.

"I'm not saying that they don't work at all, but there are better limescale removers and mould removers on the market and that aren't as expensive.


"So I definitely wouldn't spend my money on Cillit Bang products."

Next up, she also notes how she tends to steer clear of Aldi's kitchen cleaner.

"Now, if you follow me, you do know that I'm a fan of Aldi cleaning products.

"But I don't know what they put in the kitchen cleaner, but it just burns my lungs or something.

"I'm not even saying that it doesn't work as a cleaner, it's just something in there sets my lungs on fire.

"I just can't breathe it in – it is awful stuff."

She goes on to say that 'Flash bathroom' is also on her list of items she wouldn't recommend for the exact same reason.

"So 'Flash bathroom,' not to be confused with 'Flash with bleach' – I actually love the 'Flash with bleach' with the red label.

"There's something in the 'Flash bathroom' with the blue label – I don't know what it is.

"Again, I'm not saying that it doesn't work as a bathroom cleaner, but there's something in there that when I breathe it in, it just hurts my chest and it smells awful, so I personally don't use that."

Not stopping there, she moves on to discuss the Elbow Grease Glass Cleaner.

"Now again, if you follow me, you know that I love Elbow Grease," she explains.

"As a brand in general, the yellow sort of flagship Elbow Grease spray is absolutely elite.

"I always have that in my cleaning kit, but they have diversified into a few other products and I'm yet to try the whole range.

"I've tried the washing up liquid, which is good, but the glass cleaner, I don't know what's in it, it streaks, which is obviously not what you want for a glass cleaner.

"So I'm so sorry Elbow Grease, I don't like your glass cleaner."

Victoria adds that she's also not a fan of cream cleaners.

"Obviously most people know cream cleaner is CIF, but this isn't anything to do with the CIF brand," she says.

"Cream cleaners in general, I just don't like them and they leave a chalky residue.

"So as a professional cleaner, that is just more work for me because I've got to clean the bathroom or clean the kitchen to get the actual dirt off, and then I've got to go back over it again with something else to get off this sort of chalky residue that it leaves behind.

"That, for me, it's just more work."

Last but not least, the cleaning whizz notes that she doesn't like spray air fresheners.

"This isn't necessarily the case if you walk into a room that smells quite pongy, and you want to spray something before you clean it, fine.

"But if you're walking out of a beautifully cleaned room, the last thing you want to do is spray an airborne air freshener up, because all it's going to do is all the little bits of air freshener are going to float down and coat the surfaces that you've just cleaned with a weird film."
