Growing up Soft Scrub was a cleaning staple in our house for our bathrooms.  So once I was on my own, I naturally used it in my home as well.  It has always done a great job on sinks, tubs and toilets, and though I remember the original version being a bit gritty and difficult to rinse, it never damaged any surfaces and left everything sparking clean.  Now, Soft Scrub has come out with a new, improved version, Soft Scrub Total All Purpose Bath and Kitchen Cleanser!

This new formula has increased cleaning power and a new bottle design and cap for better dispensing and spill prevention.  It also has a fresh, clean lemony scent that is much less over-powering than the original formula, and it makes cleaning a bit more pleasant!softscrub, 4BEFORE

I had the two perfect places to give this new lemon cleanser Soft Scrub a test run: my stainless kitchen sink and our bathtub!  I was extremely pleased with the results! Since I have used the original version of Soft Scrub I wasn’t at all worried about it being too abrasive and scratching the stainless sink (any more than it already is!), but I was hoping it would get rid of some of the stains that had been in the sink since we moved in a few months ago. softscrub, 6

I put just a small amount of the lemon cleanser in the sink, grabbed a damp sponge and went to town.  This formula is a lot less gritty and not as thick than what I was used to, and it did a wonderful job of getting all of the stains out of the sink.  Plus, when it came time to rinse, it was a cinch!  With the original formula, I used to have to rinse quite a few times and sometimes even use the sponge since the cleanser was so thick and gritty.  With the new Soft Scrub Total All Purpose Cleanser, it rinsed away quickly and thoroughly!  My sink was left shiny clean, with a lingering lemon scent.

Next was the yucky, grimy bathtub which, I am ashamed to say, has been in desperate need of a good scrubbing!  Well, I was amazed to find that there was very little scrubbing involved with Soft Scrub Total!

With a sponge, a good squirt of Soft Scrub and just a small amount of elbow grease, our tub was soon white and shining!  And once again, the Soft Scrub rinsed away quickly and thoroughly.

My Verdict

I am thrilled with Soft Scrub Total All Purpose formula!  It may be super tough on dirt and grime but it is gentle on surfaces!  Its lemony scent is very pleasant and not at all overpowering.  My sinks and tubs have never looked so bright and clean.  Since it is an all purpose formula, I know it can be used for many other things in addition to a lemon kitchen and bathroom cleanser.
