I've been using the kitchen cleaner

- How easy or difficult did you find the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to use?

Really simple, although I prefer the spray, as the dispenser tends to over spill sometimes if don't have the cloth over it properly!

- How effective did you find Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?

Its pretty good and does the job effectively

- Did you find that you used Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner more regularly than your other cleaning products or not? If so, how often did you use Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?

Probably a bit more than the other just for a quick wipe down.

- The RRP for the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner is £2.99, do you think you'll be likely to buy it again or not? If so, why? If not why not?

At £2.99 its way to expensive, as it didn’t really last for long, so maybe if its on sale I just might consider it.

- Mr Muscle Touch-Up cleaner is currently available for the kitchen and bathroom. Would you like Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner for other areas of your house? If so, which areas?

My husband would love one for his car, to keep it forever shining.

- What did you like most about Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?

It is effective, reasonably priced and doesn't take up as much room as other cleaning products and the bottle is nicely designed.

- If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to your friends/family? If so why? If not, why not?

Yes, why not but I would mention while it is good it is a bit expensive

Thanks for picking me to trial this product. I tested the bathroom touch up cleaner.

How easy or difficult did you find the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to use? It was really easy to use. I’ve seen this type of dispenser before, so new exactly how it would work. There’s no mess and no wasted product. I really like it.

- How effective did you find Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner? It was effective to clean up marks which were fairly new and just needed a wipe. I did feel that the product wouldn’t have been too effective on heavy duty cleaning.

- Did you find that you used Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner more regularly than your other cleaning products or not? If so, how often did you use Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner? Yes, I used it a lot more regularly. I pretty much used it every day. It has made keeping the bathroom cleaner much easier as it’s handy.

- The RRP for the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner is £2.99, do you think you'll be likely to buy it again or not? If so, why? If not why not?
I might buy it again, although it is quite pricey. I’d like to buy the kitchen one too.

- Mr Muscle Touch-Up cleaner is currently available for the kitchen and bathroom. Would you like Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner for other areas of your house? If so, which areas?
I think it lends itself to kitchen and bathroom, but I guess you could have one which is more like a polish for damp dusting?

- What did you like most about Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner? The dispenser.

- If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to your friends/family? If so why? If not, why not? I would, although I’d have to mention that it isn’t cheap.

I've tested the bathroom cleaner. I've found it very easy to use, handy to keep out pn the windowsill and use for those little clean-up jobs as they arise - very useful when you have a toddler who ocassionally gets her position on the loo wrong!

I've found it effective at cleaning up across the bathroom - walls, floor spots and sanitaryware. Have definitely used it more than my regular cleaner as it's handy to clear up bits you spot that need doing there and then.

£2,99 is a little more than I'd normally spend on something so small. Would be more likely to biy at £1.99 or if on offer at similar price. Would also like a refill option to save on waste packaging. Ibthink a kitchen and bathroom version covers most needs. I would recommend it as a handy cleaning product, I like it as you can leave it out on display, it doesn't take up much room and is an effective product.

very easy to use, self explanatory.
Effectiveness- great on minor dirt/grime needed more oomph for harder work. But it is unlikely that I would use this product for heavy duty.
I used it instead of my regular work top cleaner for daily use. But used my heavy duty cleaner once a day as well.
£2.99 is the top end, I pay this for method but you get a lot more product. I would therefore only buy this on offer.
I like the no hands approach and easy dispense the best.
Yes I would mention it and recommend it in conversation if new cleaning products came up. I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it.

How easy or difficult did you find the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to use?
I found it handy to carry room to room to do general, little cleaning jobs. It is quite easy to use, and you get as much or as little of the product as you need.
- How effective did you find Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
It was good at removing most types of stains or dirt.
- Did you find that you used Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner more regularly than your other cleaning products or not? If so, how often did you use Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
I wouldn't say I used it more, as the spray type cleaner is a different type of product, and can cover a wider area.
- The RRP for the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner is £2.99, do you think you'll be likely to buy it again or not? If so, why? If not why not?
I don't think I would buy it in this format, as I am used to using the spray type cleaners. I may buy some occasionally, just to keep one to hand.
- Mr Muscle Touch-Up cleaner is currently available for the kitchen and bathroom. Would you like Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner for other areas of your house? If so, which areas?
Not, really, I think between those two cleaners, they have got it more or less covered.
- What did you like most about Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
To start with I liked the idea of the touch top bottle, but it is only really useful near to the kitchen sink for the odd little cleaning job.
- If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to your friends/family? If so why? If not, why not?
I don't think so, no. There are just better cleaners on the market already.
I think it's just the novelty of the bottle, which some people might like.

Having had my bathroom one for a few weeks now, it's actually been pretty invaluable in their, so much so that I have now bought another one for the downstairs loo. It was on offer at half price and seemed too good to miss.

It is also fab on the mirrors, what a great product!
