Affresh Stainless Steel Cleaner Follow-Up Review

For those of you that don’t remember, I posted a review of Affresh stainless steel cleaner back in June.

Having had the affresh stainless steel cleaner for over a month now, I can say that I’m still really happy with it and plan to continue using it for cleaning our stainless steel appliances. It provides a quick, streak-free cleaning which is important to us when we tend to get fingerprints on our fridge on a pretty consistent basis!

Affresh stainless steel cleaner has non-toxic ingredients, which make me feel better about using it around the boys. It has a plum scent that is actually pleasant, unlike so many cleaners. It retails for $6.99 and with how little it takes to get the job done, I know one bottle will last a long time. I’m really glad to have this in my arsenal of cleaning supplies!

Affresh Stainless Steel Cleaner – Review

I’m a big fan of affresh products after having used their dishwasher/garbage disposal cleaner and washing machine cleaner, so I jumped at the chance to try their stainless steel cleaner for review.

I love our stainless fridge – it was one of the first purchases we made for our house, and it’s sleek and modern. What I don’t love? Streaks. Handprints. Smudges. With small kids in the house, it’s pretty much inevitable that our refrigerator and dishwasher start to look mottled, not all shiny and beautiful!

That’s where affresh Stainless Steel cleaner comes in – it’s a simple spray that makes it easy for your appliances to achieve their former glory.

Just spray the surface, then buff with a soft cloth. Simple! I LOVE that this is not an aerosol spray, and I love that the cleaner doesn’t drip all over the place. It makes it a lot easier!

Once I finished cleaning the fridge with the affresh cleaner, it was so shiny I had a hard time getting a good “after” photo for you! You can see, though, that it’s smudge and streak-free.

Affresh Review & Giveaway

What room do you spend the most time cleaning? For us it’s definitely the kitchen, and I’d wager a guess that it’s the same way for a lot of families. We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, and cooking can get messy – and since having kids, we run the dishwasher several times a week (as opposed to ONCE every week and a half when we were first married).

Have you ever experienced your dishwasher getting dirty? I’ve noticed it every once in a while, and let me tell you – taking the effort to wash my dishwasher felt pretty ironic. Well, I recently got the chance to review some products from Affresh that make cleaning the dishwasher, disposal, and washing machine a nearly effortless task. I knew when it had arrived because our mailbox smelled fresh!

I love the washing machine cleaner! I just placed the power puck in my HE washing machine, turned it on a normal cycle with hot water, and was good to go. I had actually noticed recently that our clothes didn’t seem quite as vibrantly fresh as they used to, and wondered how to clean the machine. Affresh really made an instant, noticeable difference both in the washer and in restoring the freshness of our laundry. The grit grabber sheets are great to clean the rubber seal that’s around the door of the washing machine.

The dishwasher and disposal cleaner uses oxygenated bubbles (activated by water) to circulate and remove odor. I could see and smell a difference in our dishwasher after using it, but the cleaner also reaches hoses that I couldn’t reach myself to clean. It took just a few seconds of my time to clean both the dishwasher and disposal, and I love the fresh smell it gave our kitchen.
