"This stuff is a COMPLETE miracle worker!" shared one of 117,000 5-star reviewers of this No. 1 bestseller. "I thought our white, marble island countertop was ruined in our brand new house. Our 2-year-old son left hot pink slime on it...needless to say we had a HUGE hot pink stain on our counter. We tried all types of cleaners and this is the only thing that worked!"
"So easy to use," shared a shopper. "I have a 20-year-old top loader that wasn't doing a great job anymore, after I used this product all the laundry is cleaner and smells better. Even the inside of the washer looks new again!"
"What a surprise!" a shopper declared. "They don’t get that moldy gross smell that regular sponges do. They are better at removing filth and grim than a regular sponge (even the enhanced sponges) and I love the design! I have been able to wash every pot handle, soon, and kitchen device with the openings.‘revolutionary product. Not just cute, actually amazing!"
"I consider myself a connoisseur of stain removers," a shopper noted. "With kids and pets, I have had to try them all with varying results. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle. I had my doubts but decided to try it anyway. Holy smokes this stain remover has removed every stain I’ve tried it on."
"I like that they are safe for the environment, I'm not constantly buying costly dryer sheets, plus chemical free!" a shopper shared. "I have skin allergies and I'm able to wear my clothes without worry! Plus, my clothes come out with less wrinkles, the drying time is faster, good for my electric bill, too"
"Was very skeptical, but it was cheap enough so tried it," shared a 5-star shopper. "Used it tonight for first time and it works great! I have very old hard-to-clean tile and it worked quickly!"
"The result is 'WOW'!" shared one thrilled shopper of this No. 1 best-seller. "My 7-year-old dishwasher looks like brand new just after using one pill. I have hard water and all the mineral buildup from the water is GONE! I am impressed."
"I took my vent out and then went to town," shared a shopper. "I cannot believe how much junk this thing removed. Almost a container full! I’m so happy I bought this. Not only is it gratifying hearing all that stuff being sucked up, I know it’s helping my dryer last longer and it’ll be safer for the household."
"I love using these to clean my kitchen and they’re easy to wash," a shopper noted. "Just throw them in the washer and they’re ready!"
"I cannot get over how well this works!" shared a shopper. "I thought my appliances were past the point of no return. They looked embarrassingly dirty. But this little gem not only shined them to perfection…but it took two seconds and it smells great."
