Haven't had mine yet. Can't do any cleaning then grin

Oh was quite sadly hoping to be picked for this (I'm a cleaning freak) and thought I had a good chance as there were quite a few. Oh well maybe I'm saving my luck for a really big product test grumble grumble.

majjsu Fri 23-Aug-13 11:12:28

I have not received anything as yet either. I hope it comes.

lottietiger Fri 23-Aug-13 12:23:52

I'm still waiting too.. seems wierd looking forward to cleaning!

sayithowitis Fri 23-Aug-13 12:36:23

Mine arrived this morning. DH laughed at me for being so excited about the postman knocking on the door! Anyway, first impressions are good. Easy to use though as someone else mentioned, toilet paper did disintegrate, so a cloth might be better. Not overkeen on smell, (but I tend not to like the smell of any bathroom products) though thankfully it is not too overpowering.

Have given bathroom taps and the mirror a clean and thought it was very effective on both, no smears either. Will update when I've had a chance to rest it for longer.

I tried the bathroom cleaner

How easy or difficult did you find the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to use?
Once I got used to it I quite liked it, but it is different to my usual products.

- How effective did you find Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
It really cleaned well, I used it all over and it was very effective.

- 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 more as it was easier to use, particularly when guests were expected!!

- 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?
Possibly, I usually buy Method which is the same price. I'd probably buy it if it was less than Method.

- 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?
Yes good idea, floors would be a useful area.

- What did you like most about Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
It's ease of use and I really liked the smell.

- 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 I would, it's a different kind of cleaner and it works.

I didn't know that I had been chosen for this, had literally just finished cleaning the weeks grime from the bathroom and the postie arrived with my Mr Muscle bathroom cleaner.

Have sent ds in there to make some mess and will try it out later!

Rhumba Fri 23-Aug-13 14:41:07

Mine just arrived too, so will post more when I've given it a go. Kids at school so will wit til they've come back and left their usual trail of destruction..

MrsWeasley Fri 23-Aug-13 15:12:45

Still waiting for mine! Is it wrong that I am very excited about this ?

Just received this, which was a nice surprise as I must have missed the email saying that I'd been chosen. Does this mean I have to clean something now though? smile

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

Very easy

- How effective did you find Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
Very effective, thought the smell was very pleasant too.

- 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?

Have been using this every day - as a mum of two boys I am constantly having to clean little messes where the toilet bowl has been missed, and this is ideal for this.

I also found this ideal for when you just want a quick clean on small areas rather than to clean the entire bathroom - had some friends pop in unexpectedly and just dashed up quickly and used the tough up cleaner to freshen up the taps and toilet seat.

- 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?

Would definitely buy again

- 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?

An anitbacterial version for use on high chairs and table mats would be useful

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

Quick and easy to use

- 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, as its so convenient

Blatherskite Fri 23-Aug-13 16:24:33

I finally got an e-mail grin

- How easy or difficult did you find the Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner to use?
It's fairly easy. I tend to use it with a bit of toilet tissue but that does tend to disintegrate. I've used cloths too but they they're hanging around so not quite so inconspicuous to have out all of the time. I like the bottle but with it had a plain side.

- How effective did you find Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
It works well ta shifting DH's post-toothbrush weetabix spit out of the sink so I love it for that. Was really pleased to find it left the mirror streak free too

- 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?
Absolutely, I probably use this 2 or 3 times a day rather than every few days like I would with a normal cleaner.

- 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 think I will. I love the convenience and the price is about right I think. I'd quite like a little round sponge which could sit on top all the time to make it easier to use.

- 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'll definitely try the kitchen one although to be honest, I have more cupboards/storage areas in the kitchen so it's not quite as necessary as a normal bottle of cleaner is easier to hide.

- What did you like most about Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaner?
I love the convenience and the fragrance is good too although I wish it lasted longer

- 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 think I would. It's handy to have around and works well

TeaAndCakeOrDeath Fri 23-Aug-13 16:33:06

Mines not here yet, should I worry? Has everyone else got theres?

Crazybit Fri 23-Aug-13 16:44:13

I finally got an email too! Not recieved it yet though.

Mine still hasn't arrived sad. It had better hurry up as I'm not touching the housework until it gets here.

smokinaces Fri 23-Aug-13 18:07:02

Got delivered this morning. And im impressed. Easy to squirt onto toilet tissue (have the bathroom version) to squirt and wipe over. Smells pleasant. Seems to be good thus far. Will report back after some more testing :-D

smokinaces Fri 23-Aug-13 18:08:51

Oh wow. Just seen rrp is £2.99. Can honestly say unless its a half price offer I won't be purchasing in future. I dont spend much on cleaning products, the ease at which i could use this sells it to me, but the price would have me bypassing it.

Hoping for a lot of introductory offers and promotions now!!

LovesBeingOnHoliday Fri 23-Aug-13 18:54:33

Woohoo just got my email

IsotopeMe Fri 23-Aug-13 19:00:07

camtt Fri 23-Aug-13 20:50:34

Just received Mr Muscle Touch Up Cleaner and very excited to finally get something to try out. I think this will be ideal for keeping in the bathroom as it's quite compact and stays upright easily. I found it easy to use and the same effectiveness as other mr Muscle products - i.e. fine but requires a lot more muscle than on the TV ads.

I don't think 2.99 is out of the way although since it is an additional cleaner, not really replacing anything else, I don't think I will buy it regularly. I think the Kitchen version might be something I would use more regularly, around the stove plates etc

MsInterpret Fri 23-Aug-13 20:58:24

Anyone else still waiting? sad

Yes I'm still waiting.

bluebump Fri 23-Aug-13 21:49:54

I'm still waiting too.
