Pros: Cuts grease and dirt througout the home, cleans glass without streaks or smears.
I prefer to cut down and numerous bottles of specific cleaners and stick with all purpose formulas whenever possible. This is a great cleaner from Clorox.
~ Product Description
Clorox Formula 409 All Purpose Cleaner Lemon Fresh is an antibacterial cleaner suitable for general household use. The bottle tells us it “cuts tough grease and grime.” This cleaner disinfects against Staphylococcus aureus, salmonella choleraesuis, Influenza A Hong Kong virus.
To clean, spray 6 to 8 inches from the surface to be cleaned directly onto soils and wipe clean with a dry paper towel or lint-free cloth. Repeat for heavily soiled areas.
To disinfect, spray until thoroughly wet, let stand for 10 minutes, then wipe.
This is for use on hard, nonporous surfaces. There is no need to rinse for general cleaning purposes. Note this is not recommended for use on soft vinyl, varnishes or aluminum. Be sure to test painted surfaces first. For surfaces that may come in contact with food, a potable water rinse IS required.
409 All Purpose Cleaner comes in a 22 fl. oz. plastic bottle with a trigger-type sprayer. You need to turn the nozzle from Off to On in order to spray. There is no stream or spray selection – there is only a spray. Expect to pay around $6 or so for the bottle.
~ My Experience
I prefer to use products that don’t require rinsing because I’m lazy. I like to just spray and wipe dry. Formula 409 All Purpose Cleaner is perfect in that regard. I can take this bottle throughout my house and clean all the hard surfaces, so it makes cleaning easy.
This does a fabulous job of cutting grease on my range top, even after frying bacon. It will clean heel marks off my tile floors, fingerprints from light switches and door knobs, clean my stainless steel trash can with no smearing. It even cleans mirrors and glass with no streaks or smears. It will clean and shine chrome fixtures.
This boasts a “Lemon Fresh” scent, which is pleasant and citrusy but not at all over powering. I’ve had no problems with eye or skin irritation while using this. The trigger sprayer is comfortable to hold, with the trigger placed conveniently to fit my index finger. I have small hands, but the bottle is easy to hold and operate.
~ Final Thoughts
Clorox 409 All Purpose Cleaner Lemon Fresh is an excellent all purpose cleaner for hard surfaces throughout the home. It cuts grease in the kitchen, and also cleans shiny fixtures, glass, and mirrors without streaks or smears. Highly recommended!
