Go Green Natural Kitchen Cleaner review

I know it's been a while since I posted anything on this blog, but I really have been busy getting on with my life offline...Anyway, I was shopping in one of those 99p bargain stores a few days ago and came across a new green product I wanted to share, because I really like it.

I have seen a number of this particular brand of Go green products and wanted to buy a selection of them, but seeing as I have never tried this particular brand, I decided to pick one in the store, try it out and then buy more later if it was any good.

The Go green natural kitchen cleaner is a brand of environmentally friendly products designed to help you to keep your household clean and fresh while helping to keep the environment pollution-free at the same time. It is made by MPM Consumer Products based in Manchester.

This natural kitchen cleaner has the added benefit of helping to keep your surfaces, like tiles, glass and mirrors streak-free with a gentle shine. I will be buying more of this product as the price is affordable, it is gentle on the hands and contains natural ingredients in the form of essential oils such as lemongrass oil, grapefruit oil, limonene, and other ingredients which are lactic acid, sodium citrate and non-ionic surfactant. It also contains alcohol.

In terms of the ingredients, some essential oils such as Lemongrass are known for their anti-bacterial properties and others are known for their anti-viral properties, therefore it makes sense to include these in a household cleaning product.

According to the packaging, the Go green natural kitchen cleaner contains 'cleaning ingredients derived only from plants & vegetables' and 'helps remove grease and grime leaving surfaces fresh and clean.'

The Go green natural kitchen cleaner is a clear colourless liquid and has a consistency very much like water with a slightly soapy formula. It is free from petrochemicals, artificial colours and fragrances, preservatives, animal derived ingredients, sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), parabens and phosphates.

The Go green natural kitchen cleaner is made in the UK.

Update 2010:

A few weeks ago, I went back to buy some of this natural kitchen cleaner, which I think is excellent, unfortunately, they don't have any more.

Update 8th February 2011:

Spoke to the company that sells this product and they say it is available to buy in Lidl stores and 99p stores. So, I guess I'll try Lidl since my local 99p store doesn't have it anymore.
